Koopers new jeep! He loves turing on and off the radio. He didn't even want to open the rest of his gifts.

Mike, Kooper and I all dressed up in our Christmas Eve outfits from DI. We had fun shopping earlier that day for an outfit we would never wear on any normal day. I would like to point out Mike's green jeans to match his sweater.

I know I need a new picture of my sister I think I have already used this picture before. I just like it I guess. My sister Rochelle has been battling stage 4 breast cancer for a few months. She has just found out she is cancer free and will have two more rounds of chemo with no Mastectomy. I am trying to think of words to describe how happy I am... Nothing special is coming to mind just tears of joy! I love you Rochelle!

I was reading through past blogs and wow I sound really grumpy and negative so For a change of pace I was tagged the topic is:
5 things everyone should know about my husband.
I know I just did a blog similar so I am going to switch my topic
5 Things everyone should Know about Kooper
1.) He has his parents wrapped around his little finger. Some would call it spoiled, every kid should be spoiled a little right? If we yell at him and say NO he yells back and tells us No. In return we laugh at our stubburn child. Even when we are mad he is so funny, and can't help thinking everything he does is adorable. Two year olds are the best.
2.) He is hard headed, no literally he is, he hits his head and never cries. The other night he head butted me, I could have sworn at the time my nose was broken and blood was on it's way. He just thought it was funny and kept trying to get me again. When he falls he gets right back up, I love it.
3.) Kooper can count to 10, well kind of. If we help him he will repeat what we say and often jumps ahead to 8,9,10. He can also say his ABC's, well he at least knows the melody to the song any ways and the LMNOP part. He is so smart. O.K. so maybe hes not perfect at them but hey he is only 2 right?
4.) He hates his diaper, his new favorite thing to do is take off his diaper in the morning and sit in his crib. A couple times he has been caught having gone #2 and sitting in his crib with no diaper on. If he is poopy while changing him he will say, "EW EW EW!".
5.) Last but certainly not least, Kooper loves Veggie Tales. He wakes up in the morning asking to watch it and goes to bed asking for it. He has been known to watch it all day on repeat. He loves the songs and sings and dances along. He gets so excited at the mention of Veggie Tales you would almost think he was going to hyperventilate and pass out from excitment.
I am now tagging Mom, Chauntel, & Rochelle. Your topic is still, 5 things everyone should know about your husbands.

I just wanted everyone to know I will only have my current E mail until the end of the year. My new E mail is firstname.lastname@example.org
Mike is working in St. George today and stopped in Cedar City to get the key to our new townhome we are renting until we sell our home. I am having a panic attack renting while we haven't sold our house yet. Mikes work will be helping us out a little. I am so emotional lately, I feel so unprepared and paniced nothing is going to work out right. Here are a few things running through my head lately:
need to pack
need to sell house
house need to be clean constantly for people coming through house
need to change address on all bills
need to change back acct.
snowed last night and roads are icy (I hate driving in the snow)
get laundry done
Get to work on time (which i never am, bad habit)
where will I work in Cedar
will Kooper be in day care
finish Christmas shopping
Feed, change, care for Kooper
Hope flights work out over Christmas
I wish Mike was In town more this month
want to potty train Kooper (cheaper if he goes to day care)
need to clean out my office

Mike came home last night, he has been gone since Sunday. I'm not going to lie I could never be a single parent, Kooper wasn't even bad this week and I am tired. My work had our advocate Christmas party last night for our volunteers, we had a white elephant gift exchange, and a lots of yummy food. I think it is just starting to really hit me that I am almost done working for the Family Crisis Center, I have two weeks left. I hope I can find a job in Cedar that is as good as this one.

The amazing Meegan Littlefield took some family pictures for us this weekend. I am not posting the picture I an using for my christmas cards, you will have to wait. Meegan graciously photoshopped a picture of Mike and I that she likes to call, "Beautiful Couple" If you can't tell already it is of course the top picture. Thanks a lot Meegan! I was very pleased with our pictures this year. Trying to photograph a two year old is not easy Kooper was being difficult so it was a fairly quick shoot. I also have to say I designed my own Christmas Card and I am pretty dang proud of myself. After I have them mailed I will post the card on my blog.

Mike is is Salt Lake this week and next week for training, and Kooper is staying with grandma Annette this week. I have made a list of things I want to get done while they are gone. Last night I set up or Christmas tree which took forever. Tonight I am showing my house at 5pm and then doing a presentation at 6:30 at the college. Tomorrow I made an apt. to go to the spa and get a massage, which was a gift for my birthday from my office. I am also doing little sushi and shopping with my friend Meegan tomorrow. Saturday is my office Christmas party which I am hosting as a little going away party from my house. Mike and Kooper will be back Friday evening and I will hopefully have kept busy so I won't miss them so much.

Cowboy Kooper throwing the baseball
Mike going to play football on thanksgiving morning
Mom and I making Thanksgiving dinner
- Mike, for how loving and supportive he is. For how hard he works to provide for our family. The amazing father he is to Kooper. How he just wants me to be happy.Lets not forget how nice he is to look at!
- Kooper, and how much fun we have with him. He makes us smile and laugh as well as makes us want to yell at times.
- My job, I am so grateful that Kooper gets to come with me. I am grateful I get to work with my best friend. I am grateful to be so passionate about the women and children I work with.
- The temple, I am thankful that I was sealed to my family in the temple. I am thankful to have one close to us as well as the one that is being finished in Rexburg. I am sad that we will move before the temple is opened.
- My house, sounds silly but I love my house. For our first house it is perfect, I could not have asked for a better home that I am more proud of.
- My family, for how supportive they are. For how much love they have for Mike and Kooper.
- My In-Laws, for how much they help us out. For the way they love and care for Kooper.
I could go on and on I feel like I have been so blessed and have so many things to be thankful for. I love where I am at in life I could not as for more.

The balloon bouquet
Kooper did not want to let go
It was My Mother-in-Law Annette's 50 birthday this weekend. Jenna came into town from Houston for her birthday. Saturday Annette, Jenna, Nikki, and I all went and got Mani/ Pedi's then did a little shopping to pass some time until the surpries party. Family from all over showed up to wish Annette a happy birthday at her party. Kooper loved all the little kids, it was chaos. He kept closing his eyes and trying to hit everyone with the ballons. We had a great time!

I must share my good news! I have been stressing about not having a job in December because the grant for my job was up November 30th. I was afraid I was going to be working at Wal Mart through the holidays. My boss just told me today we got an extension for the grant through Dec. 31st. Yeah!!!! Now I have a job for the rest of the year. I am beyond relieved and feel like I am being watched over.

Change of plans flights were supposed to start in Cedar City on Dec. 15th now they will not start until Jan. 8th. This means we don't have to move until Jan. 2008. This is good now we have another month to try and sell our house. Bad news is I don't have a job after November 30th and will most likely have to find a job for the Holidays. Mike's last day in Idaho Falls will be November 16th and then he will be working from home until we move to Cedar City. Not sure if it's stress or something else but I broke out in hives today. Flights starting later is a good thing and at the same time I feel like O.K. lets just go already, so we can move on.

Koop loved his costume, he would say, "cock a doodle doo". He loved knocking on doors for candy, at first he was scared and would hide then he realized what was happening and he loved it. We went around our neighborhood, he was so cute knocking on the doors. Halloween was so much better this year now that Kooper can walk. I think last year he had his costume on less than a half hour. Kooper has had this costume since before he was born, I got it from my baby shower, from Aunt Jan.
