Last week Cooper turned 7.....I can't believe it's been 7 years since we had our first sweet baby boy! No big party this year, but we did meet up with my parents in Stillwater for dinner at his choice, Olive Garden! He also took lego cupcakes to school!

So I think he still had a great day! During all the snow we've had he's enjoyed his new wii and video game!

Basketball season came to a close when we ran into a much taller opponent Friday. It's always sad to end such a fun stretch in our year (otherwise known as mom gets to see other adults) but we had some good and bad times this season. Probably our toughest season yet. But we ended on a high note with some of the girls team and most of the boys enjoying dinner at my parents house Friday evening. (They played at Heritage Hall) So it'll be interesting to see what God holds for our future in the coming weeks! Overall, I think the kids are loving having their Dad's full attention!

Valentine's Day!

It's been a while since we've celebrated Valentine's day on the actual day. So Jeremy planned a nice evening for us in OKC. Which meant after a great Senior night in Newkirk we all headed to Edmond.
My parents took Cooper to Arlington to a Motor Cross race to watch a guy from church, Trey Canard. Now of course Cooper wants to be a motocross racer. They got to go down to the pit before and after the race, and Cooper got to meet him! In the racing world he's a big deal!

So they had fun! Meanwhile, Jeremy came to ballet to watch our little Student of the Month do her thing!

She was really excited for Jeremy to come watch, it was his first time. Then I actually went and had my hair done for our night out! I supplied Colby with some vday treats for herself, and some heart pizza and Pinkitzel Cupcakes for the girls and Drew to enjoy. Jeremy took me to Juniors, which might be an old school place, but the steak is yummy! And don't be jealous but in good bachelor form he set a lone rose on the table....

He thinks he is so funny. I'm sure people around us were like what in the world? Then we went downtown to Starbucks and saw the Wedding Ringer.

So overall a great night out! Here are the kids Valentine's the kids gave out at school and Maddie's box!

Hope everyone else had a fantastic Love day!

The 1st Birthday Party

Last weekend we finally got to celebrate Drew's first birthday with some family and friends. We did a milk and cookies party, and it turned out just how I pictured it! I think everyone had a good time. We did a little photo shoot when it was randomly 70 degrees in January at my parents house, so everything came together perfect! So here are a few of the hundreds of super cute pics and some from the party. He was well practiced for his cake at his party from the photos and his actual birthday! A big thanks to Josh Bailey for whipping out my milk bottle cake pops and Beth Bakes for the sugar cookies! Also to my sister from another mother Brittany for coming early to make sure everything was perfect and to my mom for the awesome chalkboard I had her do when she walked in the door!


Basketball Homecoming

Not going to lie.....I was thrilled when Cooper was chosen to be the crown bearer at Homecoming this year. Mostly because I thought he'd look so handsome in a little suit. He rocked his outfit that we got for him. We have been letting him grow out his hair to see what happens when it's longer. He really wanted a mohawk cut, but we all agreed that spiking it would be the way to go! The older sister of our babysitters we use in Newkirk won Homecoming Queen. Later Cooper asked me, Mom, what did Kyndall do to be Queen....while I love the pic of him kissing her on the cheek, he hates it and is totally embarrassed about it. His exact words were, "I do not want to talk about it!" Her mom said in a couple of years he'll probably love that picture too! I failed to get family pics or pics with his grandparents and great grandparents that came up to watch him. It was a fun night and he did great!!

Drew is 1!

I can not believe that it's been a year since this sweet boy came into the world!

It has flown by, but has been such a blast!

The picture above pretty much describes how I feel about today. I am sad my baby is turning 1, probably our last baby. (Never say never you know ;-)!) I am also so excited to move on to our next stage as parents. Having kids that sleep more through the night then not, everyone walking, talking, and continuing to all just play together! So since Drew's birthday is during basketball we are celebrating in a couple of weeks. The kids and I did take him to Starbucks to get his first milk!

He loved it, but it has not diminished his love for nursing, at least yet. Then we had a little birthday cake for him! He just wanted the icing!

And we went ahead and have him his little backpack. All the kids have been given one for their first birthday. I let the kids pick his out!

So it was a great day, and now he's 1! He loves to say mama, my mama, and hi. He likes to wave, play with cars, destroy his brother's Legos, and pull his sisters hair. He loves his mama to hold him, but likes to look at his Dad! He has completely filled all of us with joy as he fills our house with his laughter! Like I said, it's been an awesome year! Love you Baby Drew!
