Thanksgiving in St. George

For Thanksgiving we headed to St. George to be with Jon's family! The weekend was fantastic, almost all of the siblings were able to make it which made it even more fun. We ate yummy food, played ultimate frisbee, went shopping, had a baby shower for Emily, celebrated Mom Cook's B-day, it was just a great weekend and so fun to be with family. Cookie also loved hanging with her BFF April! As we headed home to Grand Junction, it was nice to have time and reflect on our lives and truly how much we have to be thankful for!

Visit from Grandma and Grandpa Cook

Last weekend Kent and Debbie came and stayed the weekend with us! We had a great time with them here, we ate yummy food, went on a hike, made the most delicious homemade salsa.. (yes you should all be jealous) took a drive up the monument, which I think made us all a little sick, and watched movies. It was so fun to have them here, we love to entertain guests so anytime you need a place to visit you know where to come!

The Big One!!

This girl is 1, can you believe it!! I remember a year ago driving to the hospital completely giddy to have this baby girl and now she is 1, I really can't believe how time flies.
For the big day, we went and rode the toys at the mall with cousin Karter, picked out the perfect toy for her present, got suprised by Daddy with a huge balloon, had pizza (which cookie ate a whole slice of) and had yummy cake ( which Cookie also ate almost all of)!

* We also went to the Dr. the next day, here are the stats!
- 19#13.5 ounces
- 28 1/2 Inches Tall
Latest Tricks - Says more in sign language and all done, High fives, raises her hands for touchdown, walks everywhere, claps, kisses, gets into everything!
We love this baby girl, Happy Birthday Cookie!!

Trick or Treat

Cookie was our little duck for Halloween this year, which was really cute cause her walk is more like a little duck waddle. We had a great time at the ward party and then on Halloween we took her to just a few houses. Cookie would walk up to the door, holding her own bucket, get the candy turn around and when we would pick her up she would kick her legs, shake her bucket and let out a big squeal! We loved it and the candy she totally scored for us!!
Happy Halloween!
