Cooper is ONE!!

Cooper is one. How did this happen? I am not sure where the last year has gone. We celebrated Coop's 1st Bday this year with John Deere theme. It was really fun. Tons of friends and families joined us at Dennis and Cindy's. The kids enjoyed the "playroom" upstairs witha bounce house toys and everyone had a great time.
Here are some pictures of t he day (they are in reverse order but you get the idea).
Here is Coop and Grandpa.

Coop and (Great) Grandaddy

4 Generations

Coop got tons of fun toys and a really cool book that our friends made with an abc's of things and people that we know. His favorite present has continued to be his bike. He LOVES it.

We took all the kids pictures in this cut out- some of them were cute and some of them wouldn't cooperate - like big sister!

Here he is "eating" his cake. He wasn't a huge fan of it and insisted on using a fork. But it was his first cake.

Cooper and Will- I forsee trouble from these two.

Candie turned "25" the day after Coop. Here are the two Bday Kids ....

Halloween 09

We had a blast on Halloween. I didn't get as many great pictures as I would have hoped but here are a few. We started with a party, moved onto a church carnival, and topped it off with a city wide event. Abby had an amazing time. She settled in on a princess and looked adorable. She loved putting on make up and sparkles. Cooper was such a trooper and looked so cute!!

Elyjah's bday happens to be on Oct 31. Here are a few shots of the festivites.

Here is Ladybug breaking the pinata. Isn't the "rope" great!

This is Sadie and Abby. Abby is still talking about riding this horse. She kept saying YEEHAW and laughing. It was adorable.

This is a random pic before bed. She is just getting too big!!

Horse or Princess

I wanted Abby to be a My Little Pony for Halloween this year. She has other plans. She wants to be a princess from her dress up box. I guess we are already choosing our battles. She refuses to let me fix her hair or put on a crown. She has fun dressing up though so whatever I guess. Here are some pics of our trial run from the fall festival at Meadowridge Cooper was the most adorable zebra (hand me down from sis). He looked just like her!

Abby refused to turn around for this pic.


Todd and Courtney came down for a visit last weekend and we had a blast. Abby loved playing with Chloe (CWOOEE). They became quite fond of each other and Abby still says "Is CWOOEE gunna be der" anytime we go anywhere. I wish they would move here so the gals could play more. : )
Saturday we took an impromptu trip to a Pumpkin Patch. I would have prepared and dressed the kids cuter for the great pics but we went on a whim and had a great time.

There is a huge slide and go carts for the kids as well as they hayride, pumpkins, a HUGE tree house and mazes galore.

So that the other adults could enjoy the TX/OU game- Cindy and I took the kids to the park. It was a BEAUTIFUL day.

Shad was so upset to find that the only gear Abby has is all A&M (which I am quite proud of). In support of beating Texas I gave in and let her sport some "tattoos" for OU. She loved them but refused to pose for a pic.


Cousins playing-- we really missed the boys this weekend. It just didn't feel complete without them.
