You clap, say mama and dada and bye bye and dog at times.

Cooper's 4th Birthday

The week of Cooper's birthday was a busy one! Hagen had his first field trip on November 9th and Cooper was feeling poorly that day and for a few days after. November 10th was Erik's brother's rehearsal dinner for his wedding and Friday 11-11-11 was the big day. So by Saturday the 12th the day of Cooper's party we were all pretty tired. But, we had a super hero birthday bash to prepare for.

As we were getting ready for the party that afternoon, I received a call from my sister Meghan, her basketball team was playing in a tournament in Mabank and they had quite a few hours before their next game, so her and her team were coming to visit. The next thing I know this was parked on our street.
Yes! That is a yellow school bus! The boys were quite entertained, the girls hung out for a few hours, Erik cooked them hamburgers they even helped me hang some decorations for the party.

The Superman bounce house.

Blue Candy Apples! I found this idea and the site for the mix on pinterest, and they are very easy and inexpensive to make. I love pinterest!

The Captain America shield cake. My friend Kim that I work with made this! I think she did a great job! Cooper loved his cake.

Guests arriving.

Loving his new birthday gift. Painting away.

At four years old, you are deffinately a strong willed child. You march to the beat of your own drum and let no one influence your decisions. You are very smart and have a large vocabulary for your age, you study things and catch on quickly. And you are a master at manipulating situations to your benefit, and you challenge us daily. You make us all laugh, and you are our cuddly child. We love you very much.

At 4:
You wear a size 5 in clothes.
You wear a size 11 1/2 shoe.
You are 41 1/2" tall and 42 Ibs.
You still have your signature curly hair, even though there are many times you try to comb it straight.
You love to be lazy and stay in you pajamas all day.
You love movies, especially superhero movies.
You still secretly play with dolls at your cousins Paytons house. However that is not your main priority in life now.
You love to talk and have the loudest mouth in the house.
You almost always get your way some way or another.
You are my baby boy and still loves to be held.
You love to color, paint and draw.
You love to give your little sister kisses.
You already love Jesus so much. You listen so closely in Sunday School and proudly announce to people that Jesus lives in your heart! That makes my heart full.

We love you so very much!
Mommy and Daddy

Hagen's first field trip

November 9th what a big day at the Tijerina house! Hagen's first kindergarten field trip and Cooper's birthday! Cooper was up most of the night before with vometing and a stomach bug, so needless to say he missed his birthday trip to Denny's. KK was luckily off and could watch Cooper and Harper while I went on the Kindergarten field trip with Hagen. We headed to Mesquite, where the kids got to play at a great park and then have lunch.

Hagen with his "buddies" Miles, Caden Ryder and Austin.

You may notice the bright colors, after playing at the park we headed to Garland for a "fun and crazy" learning concert. The kids were all encouraged to wear fun and mismatched clothes. Hagen chose to wear mismatched socks and shoes. All of the Kindergarten teachers had spray painted their hair pink!

A great day. Poor Cooper kept his virus for the next three days, not a fun birthday week..
