Easter, Blessing and 2 Birthdays

Sunday April 12 2009 was very busy day. It was Easter, we blessed Kooper and it was My Mom's and David's (Amy's Husbands) birthday. It was a great day but a I was exhausted by the end of it. I got up at 7 to take my shower be for the kids could see what the Easter bunny had brought they were so excited for the little candy they got a bunny and 2 suckers and they each got a coloring book and a $5 Target gift card. It is our family tradition that started last. Hardly any candy and then Monday we go and they get to buy what ever candy or toy they want for $5. They love it!

We all got ready for church and were there almost 30 minutes early even. The blessing was beautiful and we had lots of family and friends there. Even some from out of town. I had to do sharing time for primary and I was happy it went as well as it did.
Thank you mom for making such a beautiful blanket for Kooper!

I feel so blessed to have so many wonderful people who love and support us. And thanks to Janie we even got some pictures with mom in them... yeah! Thanks Janie!

I have this pose with Bryan and each of our kids on their blessing day.

Our Family. Tate didn't want his picture taken he was hiding behind a chair so Bryan picked him up and then he wouldn't look at the camera so Bryan told him that Bumblebee... the transformer... was eating grandpa so he had to look and see. At least he looked.

After church we went straight over to my mom's to take pictures of Kooper his outfit barely fit so I didn't want to wait and not get them and I know that is what would have happened because I would have put it off so my mom told me to just come over while he still had it on. What a smart mom I have. I bought his outfit back on New years day they had them for a killer price at the Dillard's New Years Day sale. It ended up being like $7!

While we were at mom's she took a few of the kids in their Easter clothes too. Not a great picture but we will at least be able to look back and see what they wore and how they really are.... right!
Jocelyn loves getting kisses from Joseph.
After I left my moms I went home and started making dinner and my mom's Birthday cake. She requested german chocolate with home made pecan frosting. So I cooked from about 1 until 4 will a few breaks and Ben and Keri came over while I was cooking and played with the kids and Bryan it was nice no one under my feet. For those of you who are not lucky enough to know Ben is Bryan's best friend from Utah and they came down for the blessing. I am not sure who misses Ben more Bryan or Jocelyn? They got Jocelyn a dress for her birthday she wore it from when they gave it to her on Sunday until Tuesday right be for school when we gave her a new outfit.
When I got dinner done we took it over to my moms and we all ate and hung out and even skype Zach and Manda and we finally went home about 7:30 or 8pm it was a good day but a very long one.
As a side note Kooper had his 2 month Dr. visit on Monday he now weighs 10pounds 14 oz. and is 21 3/4 inches long and is doing great! He is smiling more and more every day and has started cooing.
