Christmas Eve

Christmas Eve at Grandma Lee and Duane's house was great! Cooper got a little tool set from his Great-Grandma Lee and Great-Grandpa Duane, and a little lap top comuter from Grandma Vicki and Grandpa Rory! He also had so much fun playing with cousin Ashlyn and Uncle Eric and Aunt Tayler's new puppy Bella!

More Lights!

Rawn, my mom, Coop, and I went to Cherry St. in Gilbert to see the beautiful lights they have every year. All of the houses are completely decorated and one house even has a "walk-thru Bethlehem" in their backyard. Unfortunately, Cooper decided to sleep throught the entire thing!

You're a mean one, Mr. Grinch!

Cooper just loves leaning on the arm of the couch at Gram's house and watching the singing grinch!

Take your kid to work day!

So on friday the 19th, Earnhardts had a "take your kid to work day", so of course i had to take Coop. It ended up being really fun! I went in a little early so we could eat lunch and Cooper could sit on Santa's lap before i had to actually start working. Our shuttle driver, Karl, is Santa at the Fiesta Mall every year, so he dressed up and took pics with all the kids! He does such a great job! (Much better than the creep at Riverview!)

Christmas Cookies!!!

Savannah and I made and decorated a bunch of homemade sugar cookies! And Trev was such a big help, he cut out all my cookies and helped decorate too! Ok Savannah, this one turned out great, so you're allowed to plan stuff I guess!

Rawn's Pill Cam

Today Rawn had to swallow this pill-camera and wear stickies and a monitor all day so that the doctors can see the inside of his stomach. The camera will take approx 50 thousand pictures in an 8 hour period today, so we'll see what they find!

The "Snow"

So Savannah had this great idea to go to the Riverview Plaza, because they had Santa, snow, and a horse drawn carriage ride. It sounded like fun so we tagged along. But we realized it wasn't all it was cracked up to be when the "snow" was a fenced in area the size of a small trampoline, we had to peel Cooper off of creepy Santa's lap, and we went on a horse drawn carriage ride that smelled like a cow farm through a dark parking lot. Thanks Savannah....just kidding! We had a really fun time together, Savannah just isn't allowed to plan anything anymore!

Family Pictures

Rawn, Cooper, and I got family pictures...and here is our favorite one together!

Cooper's first tooth!!!

For a while now Coop has been drooling all the time and acting kinda fussy like his mouth was hurting, and on December 3rd his first tooth finally broke through!

Getting ready for Thanksgiving!

Grams taught Coop how to press dough and make noodles, which were a tradition started by his Great-Great-Grandma Nelson, using her noodle press! Thanksgiving is gonna be so yummy!


Who would have thought that jumping and watching Yo Gabba Gabba could be so exhausting!

Cooper found his feet this week! He constantly grabs them, but he can't quite get them in his mouth yet.

I might be gettin' some teeth soon!

Cooper just can't seem to quit drooling, but still no teeth yet!

Cooper's hand sure looks tiny holding on to his Daddy's


Coop's first "real" bath at home in his bathtub that Aunt Savannah gave him!

Silly boy!

He may not be able to talk yet, but he can flash his "gang-signs"!

What a temper!

Although we are so lucky to have such a good baby, he does have quite the temper when he's mad! Wonder where he got that from?

Bringing the baby home

Rawn and I were worried that our spoiled-rotten puppies would be jealous, but we were wrong! They love Cooper, and we Chance won't let him out of his site!

Buying our 1st house!

In May, Rawn and I also bought our 1st house! We found a 3 bedroom 2 bath house in Queen Creek, that was exactly what we were looking for. Between moving and having a baby, May was a busy month!

Welcome Cooper!

Baby Cooper is here! Weighing in at 8lb 3oz and 20 3/4 inches long! What a huge blessing in a such a small package! Who could ask for more?

Getting ready for Baby!

There is so much that goes into preparing for a baby! All the bottles, and the nursery furniture, and all of the cute little clothes! Thank goodness for the baby showers!

We're Pregnant!

Rawn and I found out that we were expecting in September of 2007! We were so excited and could not wait to tell all of our friends and family! We had an ultrasound in December and found out we would be welcoming a baby boy into our family!
