How Fun!

Jacob had a fun time this Thanksgiving weekend. He was happy. He ate some mashed potatoes, and didn't like them as much as sweet potatoes. Oh well! He can't like everything this young. Jacob just loves to sit up, even though he is still wobbly.

JJ has loved having is break and is excited to go back to school. It has been wonderful having so much time to spend with him, and to watch him be such an amazing Daddy to Jacob. I am so proud of him and the hard work he has put into doing so well in medical school. Jacob and I both love him so much. You should see how much Jacob lights up when JJ comes home from school. He is always so excited to see his Daddy, and just can't wait to play with him.

I had a ton of fun making a wreath this year. I bought a plain wreath and used extra ornaments and ribbon that I had around the house, and then I bought battery powered lights. It was so much fun, I want to do it again. I am in a very crafty mood.

It is only 27 days until Jacob's 1st Christmas!!!!!!
We put up and decorated the Christmas tree yesterday, and Jacob is just so fascinated with lights. Oh, how fun. I can't wait!

Happy Thanksgiving

We love you all. Happy Thanksgiving. Jacob is such a sweet little boy. We Love him very much, and are so excited for him to have his first Christmas. I am very grateful for a wonderful husband. He works very hard to always help me around the house and with Jacob. It has been wonderful to spend so much time JJ and Jacob during this break. We have been able to get so much stuff done around the house, but there still does not seem to be enough time to do everything. I am so grateful for all of my family and friends. We love you all.

Loving our Break

We are all loving the break together. It is so nice that JJ has 2 weeks off. We have been able to get so much stuff done. Jacob is so big. He is 15 lbs, 6oz and 2 feet tall. He just keeps growing so fast. He has grown out of some of his 3-6 months clothing. It is just amazing. He loves to sit up and see everything around him. I think he wishes we could stop teething.

Well on the down side, we have to build a new computer the motherboard on our computer died (they don't make our old motherboard anymore). So we have to replace that and other pieces that will be compatible with the new motherboard. Well I guess it gives JJ an excuse to update our computer.

We love being out in Glendale, even though it makes it a little harder to come into town and go to family events.

JJ has finished his first quarter in Medical school. He is very excited for a much needed break. Jacob and I are so proud of all the hard work that he has put into school.

Jacob is getting so big. It is crazy this is going to be his first Thanksgiving, his first Christmas. We are all so excited. He is starting to like eating food a little better. Jacob is able to sit up on his own for a while, but sometimes if he tips a little too much in one direction, he falls too fast for him to catch himself. He wants to move around so bad. When we out him on his tummy he just moves his legs so fast, just not against the floor. He'll start moving in no time. We love watching his grow up, he is just SO CUTE!!! but I'm a little bias.

The boutique went well. I had fun doing it and having JJ's sister Alicia there with me. It definitely made it more fun to have someone else there to talk to when things got slow.

We have all enjoyed the cold weather, we just wish that it would stay that way.
MARK your calendars. On December 28th, "The Cooley Sisters" are singing at the temple. For those that don't know--JJ's Mom is a Cooley. This will also include the daughters or daughter in-laws of the sisters. So that will include Brianna, Jessica, Alicia, and myself. So come it should be great.

I just want you all know that we love you all!!!

So it has been so long since I've been on here. We have all been so busy. I have a boutique that I'm envolved in on Saturday. So I have been trying to get everything ready for it. It has been hard to post any pictures since our computer died.

JJ is almost done with his first quarter at medical school. We are all so excited.

Jacob is getting so big, so fast. He was a cute skeleton for his first Halloween. Also, he started eating food. Well rice ceareal. He doesn't really like it. But he did enjoy sucking on a piece of canteloupe yesterday.
