I CANT BELIEVE IT!!!! COOPER IS 10 MONTHS OLD NOW. IT GOES SO FAST. HE IS A LOT OF FUN. HE EATS MORE THAN HIS 5 YEAR OLD BROTHER, HE CRAWLED AT 5 MONTHS AND HE HAS AN ATTITUDE ALREADY. HE IS SWEET, FUNNY, HAPPY AND FULL OF ENERGY. I ENJOY BEING A MOTHER OF BOYS. I CANT COMPARE IT TO GIRLS BUT I CAN SAY THAT BOYS ARE VERY SPECIAL. I JUST HOPE I RAISE THEM RIGHT AND THEY GROW UP TO BE GOOD MEN. COOPER IS PLAYING WITH ALL JACKS ACTION FIGURE TOYS ALREADY. ITS SO FUNNY THAT HE GOES FOR THOES TOYS INSTEAD OF HIS TALKING DRUM . I GUESS WHEN YOUR DADDY AND BROTHER ARE HAVING FUN WITH ACTION FIGURES YOU JUST START TO LEARN TO ALSO ENJOY THEM. JACK JUST ASKED ME YESTERDAY WHY I DONT HAVE ANY "TOYS". HE SAID " DADDY HAS TOYS, I HAVE TOYS, AND COOPER HAS TOYS, WHY DONT YOU". I SAID....."BECAUSE IM A GROWN UP". HE LOOKED PUZZLED. :) ANYWAY.....COOPER IS 10 MONTHS AND WE LOVE HIM TO PIECES. TIME GOES TO FAST.
We had our first snow a couple weeks ago. It was so fun. Jack played in the snow with his cousin Tobias. Cooper just starred at it in amazement. We had 6 inches and we were going to go sledding but the stores were all sold out of sleds. So this week I went to buy jack a sled from Santa clause. Cant wait until the next snow. We had new carpet put in our house on the day it snowed. I wasn't sure they would still do it but sure enough they showed up in the worst weather of the year and put in our carpet. It looks great!!!!. There was a huge pile of carpet out on our curb and it became covered with snow and Jack and Alex (his other cousin) played on it and made a fort. I love the snow. It brings out the kid in me.

MIRINDA AND JACK SPENT ALL DAY CHRISTMAS SHOPPING ON SUNDAY DEC 17TH. IM NOT KIDDING ....THEY WERE GONE FROM 12:30-6:00 AND THEY ONLY CAME BACK WITH A PRESENT FOR JACK'S TEACHER AND A PRESENT FOR LADEA. (MIRINDA'S BROTHER). WHAT DID THEY DO ALL DAY? I ASKED JACK......HE SAID "WELL, DADDY LOOKS AND TALKS AND LOOKS BUT DOESNT EVER GET ANYTHING". I ABOUT FELL OVER LAUGHING BECAUSE THAT IS EXACTLY WHAT HE DOES WHEN HE SHOPS. WELL....THEY HAD A GOOD FATHER SON SHOPPING TRIP THOUGH AND I WILL JUST HAVE TO GO OUT THIS WEEK WITH 2 KIDS AND FINISH UP, IN HALF THE TIME I MIGHT ADD. NEVER NEVER NEVER SEND A MAN TO FINISH THE SHOPPING. hehe :)
CHRISTMAS IS COMING...OH HOW THE HOLIDAYS CAN MAKE YOU CRAZY AND TIRED. WE HAVE BEEN VERY BUSY AND TRYING TO GET EVERYTHING DONE. I WENT SHOPPING THE DAY AFTER THANKSGIVING FOR THE FIRST TIME IN MY LIFE. IT WAS FUN!! I WENT WITH MY FRIEND REBECCA AND WE GOT UP AND SHOPPING AROUND 4:30 AM. WE GOT SOME GOOD DEALS AND A HEAD START. ITS COOPERS FIRST CHRISTMAS AND JACK'S FIRST CHRISTMAS WITHOUT BEING AN ONLY CHILD. IT SHALL BE EVENTFUL IM SURE. I WILL WRITE AGAIN SOON. AFTER THE HOLIDAYS ARE OVER. GOD BLESS EVERYONE AND MERRY CHRISTMAS
Now lets see......thanksgiving this year was at my mom's. It was very yummy and it was fun hanging out all day at mom's, watching football and then eating leftovers that night. However....I think my mom was ready for us to take a hike before we started the leftovers. HEHE you have to know my mom to appreciate that. She is a great lady but really really likes her company to leave within a few hours of arrival. And you need to not be a "slow leaver"... By god if youre going to leave than pick your butt up quickly and get out, you cant say youre going to leave and take an hour doing so.It causes some anxiety. HEHE. .....Again...You have to know my mom. :)
Well...so much has been happening. I have not blogged in awhile. shame on me. I have been tired and busy with the boys. Iwill start with Halloween. jack was a pirate and cooper was dragon. It was fun. I have a new tradition now. I make a big pot of soup and anyone who wants comes over to eat. The daddy's take the kids out and the mommy's stay home and pass out candy and chat. It was so much fun this year. Cooper stayed back with us. He can go next year.
