Well, I have to admit that being back and trying to settle into our new ‘normal’ life has been a bit more hectic than I imagined. Here I was hoping to blog 2-3 times a week and now I realize that it’s been weeks since our last blog entry! Now that things are settling down a bit I hope to get into a bit more of a blogging routine. But in the meantime, we have been busy, so here’s some photos to let you know what Mr. Cooper G (or Mini Cooper as some people have been apt to call him) has been up to.
We were at some costume parties and of course we went Trick or Treating so Cooper got to have a few costume changes. Here is the happy tiger:
And here’s the little-less-thrilled dinosaur:
We’ve also been busy raking leaves:
And exploring around in the closet while Mommy was busy in the kitchen:
And then this past weekend was Cooper’s very first journey to the lake. Cooper & I were fortunate that we got to go early on Friday morning with Nana & Papa (Daddy had to wait to join us once he was done work for the day). Since there are now four little boys who will be spending lots of time at the cabin (Cooper & his 3 cousins Bentley, Ethan & Tate), Papa decided that the smaller bedroom with just one bunkbed and a toddler bed crammed in the corner just wouldn’t do any more. So, sorry to tell all the visitors that are used to sleeping in the “Blue Bedroom” but you’ve now been moved to the smaller room and the little boys have been promoted. We’re thinking of calling the room “Camp Betula” or maybe the “Army Barracks”. But anyways, now there is a bedroom filled with two bunkbeds and a ton of toys. Cooper can’t wait ’til his first official cabin sleepover with his cousins. Ken’s wondering if there is a way we can soundproof the room so the adults are oblivious to all the commotion that’s bound to go on in there.
Anyways, Cooper was very eager to help Papa set up the new bunk bed. He observed for a while:
And then he was ready to try it himself:
After that Papa had a hard time getting the drill back so he could finish up the project:
It was a gorgeous fall weekend so were able to sit outside and enjoy the weather:
And we had lots of opportunities to go on walks:
We definitely want to say a big THANK YOU for all the showers that were thrown for us and for all the extremely generous gifts that we’ve received. We so appreciate each and every one of them. Also, this Sunday (November 15th) we’ll be having Cooper’s child dedication at our church service. It’s going to be at the Pantages Playhouse Theatre at 10:30 on Sunday morning and you’re more than welcome to come join us. Bye for now…
