Hi-ho, hi-ho.....'s off to work we go! The H-E-B headquarters had "bring your kid to work day" today so the big boys got to go to work with Cody. They were so excited. They got up early and Cody took them for donuts and then they headed downtown. Carter and I met them at Cody's office just in time for the H-E-Buddy Bash. It was so much fun. They had music playing and a mini Fiesta parade with H-E-Buddy himself leading the way. The boys were given a goody bag of stuff, so many cute H-E-Buddy things, and some great H-E-Buddy products. They even got to pick out a summer toy from a table full of new stuff. We had a great lunch and Cody got to show the boys where he goes and works so hard for us everyday. It was a wonderful day! What a blessing to be part of such a family oriented company!

 P.S. Yes-Colton missed school today but since he doesn't miss very often, we thought it was very worth it.

Clappin' and Crawlin'...

Carter's two latest milestones. He has been clapping for a while now but I just finally got a picture of it. He also started crawling about three weeks ago but until recently it was just a few knees at a time. Now he is definitely on the move. Things are really gonna get crazy around here but I wouldn't want it any other way!

Birthday pictures

Cooper had a great 4th birthday! We had a pirate party at Inflatable Wonderland on Friday night. We had so much fun.

Then on Sunday (his actual birthday) , after church, we took him to Cabela's to shop for a new toy gun. He LOVES Cabelas!! So we spent a few hours looking around and playing the shooting game. Then we had lunch at "his barbecue place"...Cooper's Barbecue--he really does love the food too. It was a fun weekend celebrating my birthday boy!

Easter Weekend--A little late

Okay, so I am behind on posting so this will be out of order but-oh well. I still wanted to get some pictures(hold on tight, there are a bunch) on here from our wonderful Easter weekend. We had an Easter party here for my mom's side of the family on Saturday. Even though our turnout wasn't as big as usual, we had a great time. We had an egg hunt for the kids, a cupcake eating contest, confetti eggs, yummy food and good company.

Then on Sunday we went to church and the service was amazing! It had everyone in tears and it was a perfect reminder of how great our God is. Then we headed over to Cody's parents for lunch, another egg hunt and fun games outside. We had dinner with my parents and the kids had more fun outside. It was a wonderful weekend!!
The Easter Bunny came!

Cooper's 4!

It is so hard to believe but Cooper Wiley is four years old today. He is so much fun and keeps us laughing with what he comes up with. He also keeps us on our toes since he loves to be into EVERYTHING. It seems like he is much older than he is because he truly wants to be like his Daddy or big brother... so he acts 20. =) He loves to hunt, fish and do just about anything outside. My Cooper is such a bright boy --he is smart and he can brighten anyone's day with his smile.  He is also a great big brother. I am so thankful for this little guy and we just love him to pieces!

P.S. He still has his blankie and sucks his thumb when he is tired or upset. He told Cody he would get rid of the blanket when he turned four. I don't think he realized how soon that really was. We shall see how that goes. =)

Happy Easter!

I hope you all have a wonderful Easter filled with love, family, friends and most of all Jesus!

P.S. I have to share something I found and enjoyed doing with my kids....Resurrection Eggs. It is a great way to teach the Easter story to your kiddos. I bought them at the Family Christian Store and it was an awesome purchase.
