About Us

My photo
We are a family of 5 that moved from California to Arizona about 8 years ago. We love it here! We love to watch movies, enjoy the great outdoors when it's not blazing hot, play sports, hike, ride bikes and spend time together! Life is awesome and we wish the same to all of you!

Round 2, Ding-Ding!

Jenna has been dreading this day for a while, but we are jumping in with both feet! Aislinn is starting potty training today. Why the feeling of dread you ask? Conlan started training at 2 and finally had it down by 4. We are hoping that the old story that girls are easier to train than boys is true! Potty training here we come...

With a pile of tinkerbell undies, a tinkerbell step stool AND a tinkerbell potty seat we are ready! We hope Tink will be a motivator.

Conlan is growing like a weed right now. He has gone from being a little bird and picking at his food, to a bottomless pit. He started up soccer again and is doing great! He is one of the youngest on his team, but holding his own just fine. Last weekend he scored 2 goals! We are happy to have found an indoor soccer place (which will be great when the scorching heat shows up). Conlan also just lost his first tooth. It was so loose that he went to get a drink at the drinking fountain and it just came out. He was so excited!

Playing defense, and patiently awaiting


Aisy is such a crack up. For Christmas she got a tutu from aunt Sashy. She loves that thing. On most days she will disappear for a few minutes and then return back down stairs wearing the tutu over or under whatever she is wearing for the day. She has come into her own sense of fashion and it is a crack up most days. Some of her favorite statements are: socks with flip flops, getting undressed and out of her clothes for the day to put on her Tinkerbell pajamas, and of course her tutu. She is our happy little fairy and we adore her.

On this particular day she was making quite the statement: brown jacket, lime green dress, flourescent pink tutu, black pants, pink socks and purple/pink shoes.

This is one hair day that she decided to keep in the pony tail long enough for mommy to get a picture.

Sweet girl


Our little Demi is growing up so fast (and we are not kidding). We went to the Dr. yesterday for her 2 month check-up. She is now a healthy 15 pounds (she is almost to Aisy's weight of 20 pounds) and 23 3/4 inches long. She has almost grown out of her 3-6 month clothes. She is doing great! She is smiling like crazy, is holding her head up superbly and is moving her arms and legs like crazy! Damara is so calm and is sleeping through the night (well most nights anyway). Here are a few updated pictures of our sweet cheeks!

Sunshine & Smiles

Our sunshine girl, Demi, has been smiling since she hit the 3 week mark. We were having a terrible time trying to catch the moment. Auntie captured it quite nicely! Thanks again Audra, we love it!

Aislinn's Two Year Pictures

Little Aisy girl just turned 2 a few weeks back. Here are her pictures too! The second session went much better. We had tried a week earlier, but she was so sick. She was running a fever so all of her pictures looked like she was drugged up. These turned out much better!

Such a cherub face, but boy can the mouth part scream!

Damara's One Month Pictures

Damara is 2 months now, but here are her 1 month pictures. Things got a bit crazy and Jenna fell down on the job when it came to updating the blog last month. Sorry everyone! Here is our little munchkin! Thanks Auntie Audra for another awesome session! More updated pictures coming soon!

This one is our favorite, love that tongue!
