Just a Few Highlights!

The last week has been busy busy! I feel like we have been on the go nonstop.  Here's a few highlights of our past week :)
 Last Wednesday Coop rode out to deer camp with daddy and he got to do his favorite thing...Help mow!


Then when they got home, he was ready to ride his tractor! :)
 Last Friday, we went to Badger Fest to watch Aunt Kay Kay dance on the Dazzler squad.  They had bouncy houses set up for kids to play on and he loved it.  It was his first time in a bouncy house..

 Thankfully cousin Reece bounced with him and I didn't have to get in there :)
Next it was time to slide.  This was his favorite one!....

 Best picture ever of these three.  They are all smiling and looking at the camera! Very rare!
Saturday morning we went to deer camp to go fishing. He was amazed at some of the big catfish we caught!

Sunday, the girls came over to do a little afternoon swimming. These 3 had a blast!

And to make the day even better, Aunt Brooke brought chocolate cupcakes! YUM!

Sweet chocolate smile!
This week we had a first...We are about to redo Coop's room and do a big boy room with a big boy bed.  But first, we thought we better get him used to sleeping in a regular bed without rolling out, so we decided to take the front off his crib to help him transition.  Needless to say he was excited!

Coop's gonna be a big brother!

I am very happy to announce that we are expecting our second child! This news came to us in a shocking, but exciting way! Last month, I went in to have surgery to have my gall bladder removed and to our surprise, they were not able to do surgery because I had a positive pregnancy test.  I was only 3 weeks pregnant at that time.  Even though we were surprised, this news has been such a blessing because we were told we would not be able to get pregnant without fertility help.  But, I guess God had other plans and I'm sure glad he did :)
On 8/15/13 we had our first doctor's appointment and they said everything looked great and I was measuring at almost 9 weeks.
Big brother Coop is excited too!

Our little bundle of joy!

This little boy was so excited to see the baby and hear the heartbeat!  He is going to be an awesome big brother! :)

First trip to the Dentist!

Yesterday, Coop had his first dentist appointment.  I was really nervous about it and I really didn't think it was going to go well, but to my surprise, this boy loved the dentist!
Posing on a big tooth in the waiting room! LOL!

They gave him some shades to wear and he was loving it!

He even let them clean them with the toothbrush.  I thought the noise would scare him but it didn't!

Showing me his clean teeth!

And he even got a good report from the dentist.
I was so proud of my big boy!!

Camp Meeting 2013

Last Friday was the start of our week of camp meeting at Davidson Campground.  Coop spent the entire week and had so much fun.  This year he was able to get around better and play hard! And did he ever play hard.  He was wore out by the end of the week :)
Swinging with Nonee and Pepaw

The first night it rained but that didn't stop him.  He just rode his car all inside the cabin :)

Fun with daddy

First early morning breakfast..These 2 look like they are still tired

 And the fun begins!
All star in training

Tractor time!

He rode this thing all over the campground

This was his favorite spot this year, "The park" as he called it

 This boy loves to slide

 2 cool dudes!

 Playing with Miss Ellery

Last year these 2 were just babies...Now look at them (tear drop)

 Water balloon time!
 Hand it over daddy!
 Such a ham!
He loved going to the water faucet and filling up water balloons!

My favorite pic of the week. LOVE!

He wanted to carry them all at one time :)

 Church time!

We take up a whole row at church :)

After church, its off to the commissary to get ice cream!

He loved this part. Standing on the bench at the commissary waiting for his ice cream

Happy boy!

On our way back to the cabin Katherine stopped us and really wanted a kiss from Coop...He on the other hand did not! LOL!


 He loves his Aunt Kay Kay
 Picture time with Momma before church
 Family photo time

All the kiddos...Yes, we are still considered kids :)

Loving his popsicle. He kept saying.."Its cold!"

Their faces kill me! :)

At children's church!

And back to his favorite spot..The park :)

 Bubble fun with Reece!

 He looks like he's on a mission
Time for crafts!


Such a sweet smile!!

He loved taking rides with daddy on the four wheeler

Something had him cracked up!

Looks like daddy is getting attacked! :)

Aunt Jan and Mimi came out to go to church with us!

He got his very own cone this night.  I think more of it ended up on him than in his mouth :)

Chilling with the big boys!

 Another day of crafts. He loves to color!

Putting his money in the tub for the birthday offering!

 Our last night before church
Coop singing in the children's program before church

 He knew all the songs but got stage fright and just stood there :)

Oh well, he looked cute at least, LOL!
We made some great memories this year and can't wait to make many more next year!!
