Elias Turns 6!

Elias turned 6 on Nov.17th. He wanted an Avengers party and wanted it at the pool as well. So we went with that.. nothing I can't handle right? Only eleven 5 and 6 year olds at the pool.. easy peasy. It actually did turn out good, Jeremy was there to help and some of the other parents. The boys all had a blast swimming together. We then celebrated with snacks, cake and presents. Elias got some great gifts and we gave him Pirates of the Carribean Lego Ship. He loves it and had fun building it with his Dad. Anything he can build these days is the way he likes it.
 He's becoming such a good and responsible boy. He is so helpful and friendly, the best cleaner ever! And really such a sweet boy. Happy Birthday Elias we love you so much!!

Elias has also been having an awesome time playing hockey this year, he's improved so much! Jeremy couldn't be happier and more proud, its actually pretty darn cute seeing him out there.. secretly I love it and love watching him, I just hate the time commitment involved.. but at least he loves it!
Hockey pictures, so freakin cute!

Halloween and a month in photos

So Halloween came and went. Our family had fun decorating the house and yard once again with lots of halloween decor, we love halloween at the Cooper house. My boys decided they wanted to be Ninjas yet again! I said "no, not for the third year", so we compromised and they decided on Ninja Turtles.. which was perfect because I already had a turtle halloween costume for Cash that Elias wore at that age.
attempting a group picture, barely successful.
Cash at 14 months.                                              Elias at 11months.
Okay so this is my favorite photo. This so depicts boys. Cash with a sword to his throat and Nixon looking up to his older brother scheming a plan of action.

Major Update Instagram Style

Okay so I know its been FORVER and no one wants to see pictures of my summer since it was a so long ago, but know this is for Me and my family and eventually be going in our blog book. I had Major technical issues with photoshop (which I still don't have yet) and our computer over the summer. We finally got our computer repaired and up and running again.. so because of all that I was barely taking pictures and was barely on the computer blogging.. but I didn't want to forget all thats happened in our family so I decided since over the summer I became a big fan of Instagram that I would use my Instagram photos in collages to remember our summer.

Happy 1st Birthday Cash

I made a cute monkey cake, because really that's what Cash is and that's what we call him!!
I think he liked the cake, he was even eating the plate. haha
We celebrated with both of our families. We had dinner and cake and icecream. It was a beautiful day and such a nice time with everyone. I love this sweet crazy boy so much!! I can't believe your one already Cash, you just didn't stay little long enough. Cash was crawling at 5 1/2 months and took first steps at 9 months.. and he has not looked back! We can barely keep up with how busy he is, making messes everywhere he goes and trying to keep up with his brothers. We love you so much Cash!!!

Now on to more updates to come.. man that was a lot!

Chicken Pox and Mother's Day

Yup! The Cooper boys were plagued with the Chicken Pox. First Elias got them and it wasn't too bad, he was a bit itchy but was a trooper and didn't complain too much. For a week we dealt with that and then two weeks later both Nixon and then Cash got them and that was NOT fun. Nixon was pretty good too there were only a few days where he got a fever and was really itchy, but he wasn't too bad either. Then my sweet baby boy got them and he had more than double what the other boys had. There were about three nights where I had NO sleep and was up with him, it was miserable. I felt soooo bad, they were so red and big and his poor little back was covered. He had a lot of oatmeal baths and lots of aveeno relief lotion but he was still very sad. Well, to say it was a long three weeks was an understatement, I didn't leave the house, Elias wasn't at school for over a week and we missed church three times. But now it's over and done with and I am happy they won't get it again
Cash having yet another oatmeal bath to soothe all his chicken pox, poor baby.

My sweet Cash getting over the worst of it.
Then it was mother's day and I had the best time. That week I went to Elias' Kindergarten class for a special mother's day program. It was so cute.

Me and my sweet boy at his Mother's Day program.
All the kids wrote a little something about their mom it was hilarious! Elias' is #12 and I laughed and laughed about him describing me, especially on how to get to the cabin, so cute!

All the kids drew pictures of their mom's and we had to try and guess which one was our child's. I was sooo off, can you tell why? I am pretty sure this looks nothing like me, at least I am glad I am not fat or I really would have been embarrassed. I think he was trying to emphasize how much I like the colour purple.. haha isn't it the cutest thing, look how huge I am?? He said he was drawing a picture of me cooking in our trailer. I love it and had to make sure I copied it.

Jer also made mother's day very special by making my favorite breakfast and gave me a sweet fondue set, it kinda looks like a Scentsy. It's sweet and we had fun with it for breakfast. The boys also picked out beautiful roses for me. All in all I felt pretty special and loved.

Both Nixon and Cash still had chicken pox, so just me and Elias went to church on Mother's day and we got a cute picture together. We also headed out to Raymond to see Jeremy's mom as well.

Playing catch up: Easter

Of course I am behind what else is new. Things have been busy around here, were finishing up some renos, speaking up renos I still need to do a before and after of what we have done so far in this house. Besides that we have been busy trying to get our lawn in order and over the past 3 weeks chicken pox has plagued our house, first Elias and then the 2 boys, Yikes! More to come on that. I still have updates from some of our trips over the past few months coming soon but for now I will post some pics from Easter. This year I tried to focus on the Savior more and less on the treats, but of course we still had treats. We also met up with The Cooper family in Cardston for a picnic, easter egg hunt and rolled eggs down the hill, all in all lots of fun.

Easter Morning, loot from the Easter Bunny.
off to find more eggs..

Enjoying there eggs with cousins Holli and Tessa
Cash just chilling in his stroller, it was a little chilly outside.
And to finish off everyone threw eggs down the big hill, the seagulls were going crazy! 
The boys loved this, but it only took about 2 min for 16 eggs to be gone.
