This is probably old news to most of you...

I don't know if anyone noticed Jackson's shirt from Christmas, but that's how we told the Coston crew that we're expecting Baby Cook #2.  Now that I'm 7 months, like I said, most everyone knows now.  It's not like I can exactly hide it anymore.  I do have a couple (literally) of pictures to post with updates, but I didn't take any pictures until 20 weeks.  I have been so tired with the pregnancy and new job that I have barely touched my camera in the last few months.  More to come...

Snow 2011

Ok, so it snowed sometime in January this year.  I don't remember exactly when, but we had a good time while it was here.

Ready to go, but we can't leave doggie behind!

 Riding the tire sled with Pop I

Clint pulling the sled.  (I got sidelined when I almost flipped it on top of myself.  Not good.)

 Our little snowman.  We really went all out with rocks for his eyes, nose and mouth.  Jackson wanted him to have "horns."

Christmas 2011

I'm trying to update the blog and I have a ton of pictures from Christmas, so I won't be adding a lot of narrative.  I figure that most of you probably only want to see pictures anyway!

 Our elf "Pepper".  I only took one picture of the things he did while he visited us, but he also drove Jackson's tractors, brought snow from the North Pole and hid in the Christmas tree.

Coston Christmas

Christmas Play at church

Jackson didn't really participate in the play.  He was a "wee wise man."  He was supposed to walk with the other two wise men down the aisle to the back where I was waiting, but he saw me and ran to the back.  Then, he decided that he wasn't going back on stage to finish the play.  (Jackson's in purple in the pictures)

Cook Christmas

It was a green and yellow Christmas...

Christmas Morning

It snowed and Jackson got a gator from Santa!  He still rides it every chance he gets.  He loves to collect sticks from the yard and "haul" them. 

Hamilton Christmas

Christmas at Grandma's

I was too tired by Christmas night to even remember I had my camera with me.  I didn't get very many pictures.

 Pop I and Griffin

Holli and Rowan

Isom Christmas

 Jackson and his tool set...big hit!

 Trying to get a picture with the grandkids is always fun!

Tillie waiting on her mom to open the ring that we gave her.

Okay, I think that does it for Christmas.  Just so you know it only took me two weeks to complete this post and get it published.  Whew!  Now, on to the next.

Lawson turns 5

Lawson turned 5 this year!  Where has the time gone???  He had the best party...a four-wheeler party!  Jackson and Clint absolutely loved it.  Jackson did not want to leave.

The Birthday Boy

Tillie was there too!

There they go!

Clint and Jackson

Jackson loved Lawson's four wheeler and wanted to ride it "all by himself."  Great...I guess purchasing one of these is in our future.
