It’s safe to say I’m the worst at updating my blog. Maybe one of these days I’ll overload you with tons of photos and stories and whatnot, but for now, I’ll just skip ahead to this past weekend – Cooper and Boone’s birthday party! Cooper turned four, and in a few weeks Boone turns one (which is crazy talk – all of it). Since pretty much all the same people would be invited to each birthday party, I thought we might as well have one big shin dig. And now that it’s over, I’m thinking that’s the way to go (until one of them protests, I guess)!

The REALLY awesome thing about this party is that I met a mom who recently threw her son a construction-themed party, and she hooked me up with construction tape, happy birthday banners, table clothes, etc. I might make sure next year’s birthday party theme is the same as her son’s next birthday :)


Cooper walked in fashionably late to his party, after his second soccer game of the day. And Coach Jordan somehow didn’t collapse (he’s still recovering from knee surgery), and was on his feet all day trying to keep four-year-olds from tackling people, getting their heads caught in soccer nets, not scoring goals for the other team, etc. Yes, all of those things did happen. Whew. Oh. AND Texas Tech had their spring game IN Midland, and Jordan had to miss it. If that doesn’t show some kind of crazy love for your family, I don’t know what does!


It was so much fun having friends and family in from out of town, and all of our Midland friends in one place at one time!


Boone enjoyed his cupcake after easing into it… He was still a little unsure about the whole thing! Cooper ate his usual frosting off the top of the cupcake.


The next day was his actual birthday. It was so much fun celebrating this little guy. I was reminiscing via Instagram about how Cooper’s third year was such a big year for him… becoming a big brother, dad graduating from HBS, saying sad goodbyes to Boston, making a new home in Midland, and starting school. We’ve had some rough days, but when I sit back and consider all those changes for a three-year-old to go through, I really am impressed by how he’s rolled with the punches. I’m excited to see what another year brings our family!
