Scripture Memory

One of my friends recently suggested this website, http://www.1plus1plus1equals1.com/ForTots.html, for helping preschoolers with scripture memory. Honesty, I thought Cooper was too young for this, but I decided it wouldn't hurt to give it a try. Here is our first verse. He memorized it in a couple of days and loved doing so. He likes to say it every time he sees it hanging in his room. It makes my heart happy!

Aggie Baseball and Grandmommy and PaPa

This weekend we had a fun visit from Grandmommy and PaPa!
They of course came ready to spoil. Checking out his "special treats" from Grandmommy and PaPa!
Grandmommy and PaPa also gave us a "mini shower" for Hadley! It was so fun to get some girly things for our sweet baby. Grandmommy made these cute burp cloths and taggie!
We even had time to take them to the brand new park in our neighborhood. Cooper is convinced it was built just for him. Every time we go he says, "I'm so glad to be at my park." HA!
This weekend was also opening weekend for Aggie baseball! We went to the first game at the new field on Friday. It was very rainy and cold so we only made it through one inning. We did manage to see a homerun though!
We tried again on Sunday with Grandmommy and PaPa and the weather was MUCH nicer! Cooper loved playing at the park they have at the field and eating popcorn!

Valentine's Day!

We had a very fun and eventful Valentine's Day!
Cooper got this bouncy ball (a.k.a. buckin' bull) from Mommy and Daddy! I had Bible study this morning, and Cooper got to make a heart craft and enjoy Valentine cookies and juice in his class!

Next, we headed off to a little Valentine party with our friends. Cooper loved making these bear hug valentines for his friends. They were filled with teddy grahams and gummy bears!

The gang enjoying their Valentine themed lunch!

Enjoying cupcakes after exchanging valentine treats.

On Valentine's night, Chad and I went to Christopher's with a group of our friends and had a great time! Cooper had fun with his babysitter until it was time for bed! HA! What a fun day! So thankful for my two special Valentines.

Ft.Worth Stock Show



While we were in DFW visiting the newest member to the McQuitty family, we stayed at a hotel in the Stockyards and made a stop by the Ft.Worth Stock Show!

Our little cowboy ready for the animals!



Cooper loved talking to the horses.



But more than the animals, he really enjoyed driving ALL the tractors! (He also got to have his first corn dog. He thought it was hilarious that it was on a stick.)
