What have we been up toooo

Well to start....The new business has a better name...Fashion Forward Denim. To say the least it is a full time job. I work day and night and many times I am up between 12am and 5 am working too!!! It has definitely consumed us lately. There have been many bumps, lost boxes from UPS is the biggest, but we have had a great response. Lots of positive feedback and lots of jean purchases! We have three more big parties before Christmas, then hopefully we can take a few days off. I want to share some pics with you. I have no pictures of Cooper with Santa. He has hated Santa until this of course he understands the concept...sit in his lap, tell him what I want but then WHEN WILL HE DELIVER??? This is the question of the day..Cooper is having a hard time waiting for Christmas!!! So since he likes Christmas so much, he has been 3 times!!!!
I do have to say, he has learned so much about Jesus at his new school. I am glad he is in a Christian environment where he goes to Chapel weekly. He tells me about Jesus' Bday, that Mary and Joesph are his parents. He sings about Jesus and knows several prayers. But for now in his head Christmas is all about the presents, but he does like to hear about the True meaning of Christmas!!

This is at Bass Pro Shop..they have the cutest Christmas set up. With trains, fake animals, crafts...Check it out if you have time.

This is from the Jingle Bell Ball..we go every year to the Very Special Needs party with one my old students Caroline.

These 2 pics are from Zoo Lights. Nana, Granddaddy and Martin went over Thanksgiving. The two other kiddies are John and Larkin, our cousins from Atlanta.

Thanksgiving Feast at St. Dominic

Cooper has been singing Thanksgiving songs for weeks. I invited the whole family to come see him preform. Nana (martins mom), Granddaddy (martins dad), GeGa (my mom), MiMi..aka Aunt Judye (martins aunt), Coop can not get this one straight! I had a camera and a video camera charges and ready. I got there helped the mothers st up food and went to get my video camera ready...guess blank tapes. I was not happy, but guess what Cooper got up there smiled, waved, set down, and then threw on his Coop face. Those of you who know him know this face. I think I got a good pic of it. So needless to say he didn't sing, he didn't do anything but sit there!!!!

Yes this is it. This is the Cooper scowl..his favorite face!
More fun pics of the play.

More Scowl from the Flying Squirrel!

Coop not letting me take a cute pic!!!

This is Coops best little bud from school. He is the brother of one of coops classmates, Webbie. But Coop loves this boy because they are both obessed with trains especially GEOTRAX! They spend hours playing trains, talking trains, and watching train movies.

Coop and Riggan..what is up with boys refusing to pose!

Hope you all had a Happy Thanksgiving. I will post pics from ours later today.

The Sweetest Child Ever!!

Yesterday, Martin was sick with the stomach bug that was going around so he was total out of commission. I had a ton of work to do plus a house that looked like a bomb had gone off. Needless to say Cooper was bored and sleep deprived from Thanksgiving! So around 3 I enticed him in the tub with a full bottle of shaving cream and just let him go to town. About 30 mins later I heard mommy I have a suprise for you...oh there going to be shaving cream everywhere...well this is what I found.

Mommy..It's a beautiful heart for you!

What a love bug!!!!
