Fall FUN

Saturday was chilly but nice enough to get out for a little fun in the leaves.
Cooper laughed a lot while his daddy was trying to get all the leaves out of the carport. I'm pretty sure he thought that pile was being made for him. He had a great time!

I found this backpack in the shed with some Disney books. He liked walking around with it but it made me sad to see how big he's getting. 

While we play outside we always have to go to the fence to see if the "dows" - cows are out and we have to go pet the "dees" -deer. So here he's sitting on it like he likes to do. What a silly monkey!

Narissa, Rebekah her sister and I took the boys to a Drury University basketball game to watch Sara Jane their other sister play. The boys stayed busy with the trucks and tractors.

Not the best shot but had to show that we were actually at a game. Cooper liked with the crowd clapped he clapped too. They both liked when the flew the Drury blimp overhead. One big giant balloon can entertain even the old but young at heart. 

Hope you are enjoying your Fall. 
The weather is starting to look and feel more like fall. Of course when it's time to do the annual tradition of running the 5k Turkey Trot it's supposed to be frigid! Oh well it wouldn't feel right if it weren't so cold your hands and ears hate you before you're done running.

Happy Fall Ya'll!!!


Bottoms Up

Cooper has started doing this all the time. He's done it for a long time but now he'll just be walking or playing and stop and do it. I think in a way it's him playing peek a boo which he LOVES!
(Actually as I'm typing this he did it next to the couch where I'm sitting)

Don't you just love those rolls?!

Another Trip To The Zoo With Friends

 A few weeks ago my friend Katie and her daughter Kharis were home from Tennessee and invited us to go the the zoo with them. It's always great to see them and we take anytime we can get with them.

I had to take a picture of these frog because they didn't look real. The colors are so vibrant. We watched them for a long time to see if they moved. They did but they still didn't look real.

It seemed like Kharis liked Cooper's hair. It was funny.

We of course played at the playground there.

Always great to see you girls!! Love you!


It's The Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown!

For as long as I can remember watching Charlie Brown around Halloween has been a tradition. So I decided to continue doing it with Cooper. So we got our snack of banana muffins and milk and snuggled up on the couch. 

I think he liked it. We'll watch it again I'm sure. I actually dvr'd it so we could watch it later too.

On Friday the merchants on the square had trick-or-treating so Narissa and I decided to take the kiddos. Bre and Sam were there too but I didn't get any pictures of them. Let me tell you it was exhausting, thank goodness Aunt Mar, Garnny and Grandpa went with us, the extra hands were much needed.

Cooper was a Koala Bear and Mac was and Elephant

Ever since Cooper was born we've called him our koala baby bear. When he was in the NICU we did what was called kangaroo care but I for some reason called it koala care.

When he was just an itty bitty koala baby bear.

Here's a few of Coop in his Charlie Brown shirt.

Hope you had a wonderful Halloween!
