Cooper's Blessing

Sunday Jan 9th was Cooper's Blessing day so we loaded Hayden up in the car and hit the road Sat afternoon just in time to get to Tonopah for dinner. Ashley had made a fabulous lasagna dinner for the family that night. We stuffed ourselves and visited everyone for awhile.
Mendis played basketball with Rees:

Hayden and Benjy played some Mario cart:

I played with Coop and visited with Ashley. Such a fun evening.
Sunday we all went to the Tonopah ward for the baby blessing. Hayden got to help bless the sacrament since they are always short on priests. We took some pictures and Rees hustled off to Sunbeams. After church we went back to their house for some lunch and some more visiting before we had to leave. It was fun to see them again. Their cute little pink house is coming right along. The kids are growing like little weeds. We even enjoyed the cold weather since we knew it was only for the weekend. We are so excited to see everyone doing well. Cooper is gaining weight and looks different every time we see him. We just love that cute little guy. It's hard to get a picture of him happy and content but he does have his happy times. Ashley wished there were more of them. It was a fun weekend and we are so happy to see their family growing and doing well. Some of life's many blessings are seeing your children happy and doing well and having Grandkids!!

I can't believe how big Cooper looks in the pictures. And I love the one where he has a look like he is about to burst into tears! So cute. I'm glad you got to be there for his special day.
