Cooper had a birthday party at the beginning of this month. He was super excited about it and go some wonderful gifts and had some fiends and family over. He was such a cute little host and introduced some of his friends around. he had a blast!
We celebrated Christmas this past Saturday at Grety and Pappas' house. After a nice dinner and dessert we headed into the living room to exchange gifts. The kids got some great stuff that they all seemed to enjoy. Duane and Andrea and the girls got Cooper a great remote control Tarantula. Its pretty hideous but he loved it. I can't say as much for the cats though! Check out the video of Cooper torturing them with it! Natalie got a lot of cute clothes and books. Hopefully next year she is more interested!
We then went to my parents house on Monday night for latkes (potato pancakes) and Hanukkah. As usual my parents showered us, especially the kids, with fantastic gifts. We all had a blast opening them and throwing the paper at my Dad, as is tradition! Cooper got a lot of great games and clothes. He also got a great new desk for his room. Natalie got a rocking unicorn and some new clothes since she is growing like a weed. Dean got a great new jacket and a lot of other clothes and a box of bullets from my dad who was repaying him for the woodchuck Dean shot in their yard! Dean really got a kick out of that! I got some awesome and much needed stuff for the new house like curtains and towels and bake ware. As usual my mom outdid herself and found us all the perfect stuff! I don't know how she does it!
So today we are off to North Conway to spend Christmas Day on the slopes and with my family. Hopefully my sister and I can get in some quality time since we don't get to see each other that much and winter is the busy season for all of us. After that we are planning to go up to camp for New Years with the Chappell/Miles (maybe) clan!!
Hope you all have a great holiday and enjoy the snow!
