Easton is the cutest little boy we know! He rightfully earned the nickname 'BEASTY' when he was a baby and it has stuck with him. He is such a sweet little mommy's boy and we are ALL at his Beck and call. Easton loves cars, snacks, and playing outside. He is talking up a storm and it seems like he learns something new every single day. He is at such a fun age. We LOVE LOVE LOVE this little guy!


Ainslee is the baby and she just turned ONE!! This child is a handful!!! She hasn't quite grown out of the difficult phase.....that she has been in since she was born, but we still find ways to find her sweet side! Hearing her baby giggles and watching her discover & learn new things make all the whininess......just a little easier to deal with. Aaaahhh, we love this Ainslee Girl!!


Oh our cute little Avery! With her blue eyes & blonde hair, she is one of the cutest 4 year olds around!! This girl is stubborn! She definitely keeps us on our toes. She is quite unpredictable, which makes for a lot of laughs! Avery is our TREAT-FREAK! We can always guess what is on her mind. My favorite thing about Avery is her smiles. She always has one for us no matter what and that makes everyones day just a little better. She attends preschool and says she doesn't like it, but secretly we know she does ;). We are so lucky to have this cute girl in our family! We can't get enough of her.

Kobe is our first child, born in 2004. He was 4 months early and weighed a whopping 1 lb. 4 oz.! We got to be with Kobe for 4 wonderful weeks. I feel so blessed to have been chosen to raise one of God's perfect children. We love him and thank Heavenly Father everyday that he is part of our family. We have a treasure in heaven.

Quinnie just turned 6! She is growing faster than we can keep up with! She loves going to first grade and is doing really well! She picks up on things very quickly and LOVES learning. She's seriously a sponge. Her favorite thing to do is write notes and draw pictures for her friends & family. You should see our continual stack of papers. Quinnlyn is creative & spunky & totally independant. We love her like crazy!

Take me back!!!

Brett and I have been married for 10 Years!!!! Certainly calls for a celebration, and celebrate we did! On March 16, 2013 we hopped on the Carnival Fascination Cruise Ship for a 5 day cruise to the Bahamas. It was fun, relaxing, and just plain GREAT!

We ported at Key West where we did some shopping, rented bikes to ride around town, rode to the southern most point in the Continental U.S, and rode to a beach.

We also ported in Nassau, Bahamas where we did more shopping (had to bring something home to the kids) and walked to another beach AND I got a snow cone (they don't sell them here in Iowa so I miss them during the summer).

During our 'Fun Days at Sea', we spent the day EATING, napping (definitely my kind of vacation), laying out on the ship decks, watching shows and such, and just hanging out.

It was so disappointing to come home to cold weather and snow. 

Enjoy lots of 'self portraits':
Love that Bright Sun (haha....we look naked)
