It's Party Time!

What a night! Tonight we celebrated Cooper's birthday, I can't believe he is almost two years old. It doesn't seem right. Like last year we kept it small, close family and my best friend Sharon and her daughter Allie. Once Cooper gets older we will do a big party but he had just as much fun with those that were there tonight. Especially with Uncle Scott who kept feeding him cake and showing him how to wipe it on Mamaw's face. That is where he learns all the bad habits.

Our guests included... my mom and Steve's Aunt Linda, Papaw (Steve's dad)
Mamaw, Uncle Scott and cousin Tina (who is being blocked by Cooper),

Aunt Marilyn and cousin Ricky,

and Sharon and Allie. Look behind Sharon and you can see we were watching videos from when Cooper was a baby. Poor guy, that was from when he was about 3 1/2 months old and had a fever of 103. Long story, but that was a week I never want to live over.

I want to say a huge thank you to everyone tonight! You guys are so generous and show so much love to Cooper that a simple thank you will never be enough. We have so many new toys, books, coloring books....I don't even know where to begin. I let Scott take the pictures, he took about 60, don't worry I narrowed them down.
It was so much fun watching him this year, he caught on pretty quick. We got a Pirate Ship from Sharon & Allie.

Next up were some books and more Little People from Tina.

He got some coloring books and CD's from Aunt Marilyn.

Mamaw & Papaw contributed to his college fun,

along with a George puzzle.

Aunt Linda found some Cooper's Apple Butter... I have a feeling Daddy will get more enjoyment of this.

Mamaw & Papaw also got a guitar. I found so many random pictures of him playing with the box, he kept going back to it each time he opened a gift. He makes it even more special that he learned to say guitar this week.
Uncle Scott got some new clothes and just what we needed more balls,

and a bowling set.

My mom got him Mickey's Cho Cho Express, he played with this a lot tonight. If anyone has seen this episode of Mickey Mouse Clubhouse, this train lays down the track just like in the show.

She also got him a new puzzle. He's always been good at the beginner puzzles, I thought this would be a challenge for him, he did pretty good with it tonightHe got an Aqua Doodle from Ricky, I think I might be more excited about this one,

and a new Elmo as well.
Finally a tool bench from Mom & Dad.

Thanks again everyone! We all had a fantastic night.
