It snowed over the weekend so Levi took Cooper out with the Gubler kids sledding this morning. It's nice with the motorcycle track, it's like built in bunny hills. please ignore the shaky parts, i had to run and get into veiw.

Gemma also started laughing, not just smiles and gasps, like actual giggles. It's so cute!!

Coop the poop

I have only been blogging about Gemma lately so I thought I would put some pictures of the Coop. The ones in the plaid shirts are on Thanksgiving. He was such a good helper until he turned the stove up and almost burned the squash. He was just so tired he fell asleep at 6:30!! A thanksgiving miracle. :D

It's Here! Twilight is out!! We bought out tickets 2 weeks in advance to make sure we all got in. Jandi is nice enough to let me tag along with her and all of her girlfriends to dinner and the movie tonight.I even made t-shirts for her and I, and a few of the others. I was going to write, "All i want for Christmas is a Cullen" (courtesy of Leah) but it was too hard to write with the bleach pen or permanent marker.. so i settled for some swirls and the title. Jandi's turned out way better than mine because i did her's second, but they still look pretty good. Here is a pic. I hope the movie is good. :D

We were lucky enough to have Levi's family come up for the weekend to help with the basement and be here for Gemma's blessing. Gemma was such a good baby up there getting blessed, she was wide awake and didn't make a peek. Levi did good as always. I didn't get the family pictures on my camera, but here are a few pictures i took of all of us after church with Gemma...

Melissa's birthday cake

Since i have been making some cakes lately Penny asked me to make a cake for Melissa's birthday this year. I didn't really have an idea whether to make it just cute or elegant or what, so i mixed and i think it turned out really good! Here are a few pictures...
P.S. I just noticed there is still powdered sugar on one of the bow loops. Oopps!

I haven't been keeping up on the Blog too well lately, so here is an update... Our family is just working really hard to get everything ready for Jo's Wedding, I'm practicing cakes, Leah is sewing dresses, my mom and dad are franticly trying to get their house in PV ready... It's been pretty hectic, but fun.

As far as my pregnancy goes i am feeling the baby move more and more, Levi has felt it a few times. My ultrasound showed that my placenta is too low, so i am going to have a few more ultrasounds to watch that and make sure it doesn't grow too far down. My doctor says it shouldn't be a problem though, so i am going to take his word for it. other than that we are staying busy with Cooper and work.. Hope everyone is doing good!!

It's a GIRL!!! :D I am so excited, i already went to look at fabric for her room!! I didn't find anything though... I will post the ultrasound pictures when i get a chance. But she looks healthy and everything is normal.

"Gook Mama"

Cooper woke up a little earlier than usual this morning, and i was exausted, so i put on a blues clues, made him a bottle and some toast and went and laid back down for a little while. I knew it was a recipe for disaster, but i was too tired to care. About 25 minutes later when the Blues Clues was over i could hear Coop out in the living room playing around and laughing... as i laid there i smelled something stinky, but i figured it was Ava, our dog's, breath, or mine. Then i heard it... "gook mama poo" which translates "look mom poo". i imeidiatly jumped up becuase i was scared Ava went in the house and Cooper had it, but to my surprise, in the middle of his room sat Cooper with his hand in the edge of his diaper pulling out poo. He painted a beautiful mural on the wall. It was awsome. :S I threw him in the bath and got him all clean and then i had to tackle his room. I am so glad that my gagging reflex is in full swing from the pregnancy, it made things so much more fun...

I wanted to change my background template for a while now, so i found one that i liked, copied the HTML and pasted it, but it was going to delete all of my family and friends links and the baby ticker and everything so i didn't change it... is there a way to use a custom background and not lose all of that?? I guess i'm not as blogger savvy as i thought.. :D

Farewell Uncle Jaden

Levi's brother Jaden left for the Munich Germany Austria Mission on Wednesday. He is a Great uncle. Cooper Loves him so much. Jaden played with Cooper so well and was always willing to take him on the go cart and play games with him. Cooper and us are going to miss him a lot!


Over Easter weekend we were invited to leah's to have a egg hunt with some of our cousins, and on Saturday we went out to the desert with Levi's family to have a picnic and another egg hunt. We had a great time with both, and the best part was since Cooper got to practice hunting eggs at Leah's he was great on Saturday!
Here is Cooper in Leahs backyard a little confused on what to do...

Figuring it out :D

I think he's got it. Hahaha
Here's cooper on Saturday in the desert running to get some eggs. Ava isn't far behind, like always.

We also had a great time shooting with all the cousins.
