Girls Trip to Park City

A couple weeks ago, I was lucky enough to go spend the weekend with some of the greatest gals! We had such a good time. Myself, Tara, Nikki, Georgana, Lesli, Britany and Heather met up for a weekend of shopping and catching up. We missed you Chelsey!! We all went to high school together and have tried to stay close even though we live in different places now.
The weekend was full of good food, great shopping and of course some laughs. We ate at Cheesecake Factory and Cafe Sabor and shopped at Fashion Place, the Outlets and of course TJ Maxx. I even had my first experience with foot zoning. Lesli is taking classes to learn how and she practiced on me. It was awesome and I'm planning on doing it again soon.
This was the second year we've done this and each year has been so much fun, but it goes by too fast.
It makes me sad that I don't get to see these girls more often, but I love that when we get back together we pick right up where we left off. Thanks to Brit for getting us a place to stay. Love you girls!! Can't wait until next year.

Aren't my friends so photogenic?? Me on the other hand...I think I was worried Brit wasn't going to make it in the picture because she was doing something. That's my excuse :)

Chocolate Milk.....Face

Okay, so Cooper has started to learn his colors. He knows blue, red, and some of the others. Well, lately he has been going around the house saying chocolate milk randomly. I have just come to realize that chocolate milk is his word for brown. He will go around saying it and pointing to brown things. Cute right?
Well tonight Brad, Coop, and I were at Target. We were done looking and were heading out when a black woman passed us. All of a sudden we hear CHOCOLATE MILK, CHOCOLATE MILK, CHOCOLATE MILK.....FACE! Yup. He kept repeating it over and over like he was astonished. Brad and I were dying laughing. Our kids are so innocent, and the things that they say at this young age are so hilarious! I'm just not looking forward to the awkward moments...I'm sure they are soon to come!

Trick or Treat!!

Halloween was a blast this year. I swear we live in the best neighborhood for it. It does pay to live only six feet from your neighbor in some instances! I had no idea what I was missing growing up. In Lewiston we got a lot of candy, but we had to be driven from one house to the next. I guess it's just a different experience.
We started our day off with a Halloween party. My cute neighbor friends Mandy and Janette had planned it. They had lunch for us and we decorated cookies. We had a great time. Thanks guys!!
I have no idea where Coop got the idea that this is the face he has to pull for is a common thing now!

That night my parents came down. I was excited for them to experience with Coop. Brad had seriously been practicing with Coop how to Trick or Treat. He would have me stand behind the front door and he would go outside with Coop and have him knock on the door. I would open it, Coop would say 'Trick-or-Treat' get the picture. No joke. Brad really did practice with him for like three days. What a nerd!! Love you honey.
I guess the practice paid off because Coop was pretty much able to do everything himself. It was funny because he would just stand there after saying Trick-or-Treat. They would give him candy and he would just sit and look at them. They would then give him another piece and he would say,"Thank you, your welcome." For some reason they go together! At one house he even invited himself in to pet the cat. He walked right in, pet the cat, and walked out saying, "Bye kitty!" We had a great night despite the rain showers!!
