Oct 5, 2010


October is the birthday month for our family. Cooper turned 4 on September 30th. My mom's birthday was yesterday and my birthday is today. We have more later this month, too. It's crazy, but I love it. Cooper made out pretty good this year in the gift department.

He had 2 parties - one in Thatcher and one here in Mesa. His grand gift was the Batman Castle that Randy and I got him. He's been talking about it non-stop for the past few weeks, so he was pretty excited when we brought it out. He's also been having a blast with the nerf guns my sister Brooke and her fiance Keith got him. (In all honesty, I think the adults had just as much fun with them, if not more -- see the picture of my mom below) :)

Grandma and Grandpa Conrad got him some spiffy new Toy Story underwear that he loves. He told me the other day he was on his last pair of Toy Story underwear, so I had to do the laundry so he would have a clean pair for tomorrow. His drawer was filled with clean underwear, but he didn't want to wear any of them. Only the Toy Story ones would do. :) And thanks to Grandma McDowell & PopPop for the fishing puzzle. Poor Coop hasn't really gotten to play with it too much, because his brother thinks it's the best thing in the world and won't give it up. :) Anyway, thanks to everyone for the gifts and phone calls and cards. We love you all!
