Christmas Day

We were so blessed this Christmas. It just made us realized how many wonderful people are in our lives. Cooper was so much fun. He loved getting his new toys and "helping dad" put it together. We had a great time with the Buttars family and the Rich family.

Christmas Eve

So, it's been a struggle between Brad and I to figure out a way to spend Christmas with both families. They live close enough together that we can see both, but balancing our time is hard. If anyone has suggestions, let me know. This year we went to my cousin's house and had dinner on Christmas Eve. We had a good time and then my parents rented two snowmobiles to play around with until Wednesday. Eddie, Michelle, Brad and I stayed out until 11:30 playing snowmobile dodgeball. Hopefully that will become a new tradition. Thanks mom and dad!

Christmas was so much fun this year. But, before we get to that...I thought I would post a bunch of pictures from before Christmas. We had a good time sledding, going to parties with family, and just relaxing!

Latest Tricks...

So, Coop has decided lately that his toys are no longer fun. He thinks that mom's "toys" are way more fun now. It is so hard to keep your house clean when a little one is running around like this opening everything. I guess it doesn't matter really, and I'm trying to just enjoy every minute of him at this age.

Does anyone also agree that bundling up a little one is a pain? I love winter and being warm and cozy, but it's hard to get them in their coat staying warm. I thought this was a cute picture though.

Last, but not least....I turn twenty five today. I can't hardly believe it! A quarter of a century. It seem strange that ten years ago I was in ninth grade. I wasn't driving yet..I was still working on the farm..and living in Lewiston. All of this seems so crazy. I am so grateful where my life is now. I have a wonderful family, extended family, friends, home, and so many blessings I can't even count. Thanks to everyone for being a part of it!

A Year Has Passed...

It is so much fun to look at old pictures and see how much Cooper has changed. We had four of us that were due within a weeks time. One of those couples was Mick and Tiffany Simmons. Right after Coop was born, we went to visit the Simmons because they had their little girl Addy five days after Coop was born. She emailed me these pics and I can't believe how much they've changed!

A few days after they were born:
