We got together tonight to watch the Jazz Game and Kaden and Ava had their matching D-Will Jersies on. They have such a funny bond, I love watching the two of them play

New Best Friends, Reese and Payton just trying to figure each other out :-)

St. George!!!

Wow, I have been craving the sun for soooo long so it was wonderful to head down to St. George with the Bell's and the Olsen's for a little weekend getaway. The guys in our neighborhood had a golf tournament Friday and Saturday so Kira, Lacey and I just hung out at the pool with the kids! The weather was absolutely perfect! I wish I lived down there I love St. George so much! Plus it gave me and Kira an excuse to play dress up with our girls and get them in their swim suits :-)

Payton was an angel at the pool, she just relaxed and slept the entire time

Kaden had so much fun playing golf and swimming, although it was sooooo packed at the pool I think he was a little overwhelmed by the hundreds of kids everywhere. He needed a buddy! Mom isn't that fun at the pool I guess.
Kira, Lacey and me! No trip to St. George would be complete without a trip the the Pizza Factory ( much to James' dismay)

Back at home and reunited with his buddy Mokie, getting some long overdue lovin'

Good Luck Heidi!

My cute little sis Heidi just left to Ecuador to a humanitarian project for a few months. She will be working with little kids in several different orphanages and all different ages. What a neat thing! She is such a kind, compassionate person I know the kids will looooove her to death. Love ya Heidi, we will miss you!

Kaden had so much fun at Ava's 3rd birthday party! Rylee was spinning him and Ava around on the chair and that was a Blast!
Kaden is obsessed with golfing every time he goes over to my parents house. This day he ran out without asking, and without clothes can't tell from the picture but it was freezing outside that day! Kids are pretty oblivious to the weather I think.
Hmmmm, not quite right
That's a better fit!

Happy Birthday Dad!

My Dad just celebrated his 49th birthday, and as usual we headed to the Old Spaghetti Factory for dinner. I was just wondering if anyone else's family is also obsessed with this restaurant It has been a staple with the Cook's for as long as I can remember and I just want to know if anyone else craves it like me??? For the last birthday which happened to be the Quad's, we did something a little out of the ordinary and went to Flemings, which for anyone who has never been there is a really nice and pricey I might add, steakhouse at the Gateway. Well it was fun and great but I think everyone was secretly wishing they were at the Spaghetti Factory. Maybe it is just the carb lovin', spumoni eatin' family we are! Oh well, it is cheap and everyone leaves happy.

Heidi and Payton

Kaden had to have some candles in his ice cream too, so he could blow them out like Grandpa

Happy Birthday Dad, your the best!!!!!!

Husband Tag!

Ok, got this tag from Lindsay so here I go!

1. What is your husband's name? James Morzelewski

2. Who eats more? Sadly, most of the time it is me. I eat a lot faster so I usually end up scarfing more than my hubby.

3. Who said I love you first? James! We were Juniors in High School, in Colin Kents backyard on his tramp. James was writing things on my back with his hand and he wrote "I love you". So sweet, those were the days!

4. Who is taller? James is, well except when I am wearing really tall shoes!

5. Who is smarter? Hmmmm, not quite sure I guess it just depends on what you need to know!

6. Who is more sensitive? ME! Maybe a little too sensitive sometimes James might say...
7. Who does the laundry? I do. It is actually the one chore that I enjoy doing, even though these days it seems like the laundry never ends!

8. Who sleeps on the right side of the bed? James has always slept on the right side, who knows how that came about? I get the nightstand for the moniter, my water, phone, lamp, etc etc etc....
9. Who pays the bills? James does! I am pretty oblivious to our bank account but he told me I am going to have to start paying some...Rude!
10. Who cooks more? I am definitly the cook but James always mans the BBQ because I am afraid that it is going to blow me up :-0

11. What meals do you cook together? Good question! Um I guess the only time we really cook to gether is when we BBQ. Usually He cooks breakfast on Sunday when I am too lazy to get out of bed!
12. Who is more stubborn? ME!!!!! without a question! I think this drives James crazy but I take after my Dad!
13. Who is the first to admit it when they are wrong? James! This goes along with the whole stubborn thing I think. James is so great at talking things out and not holding on to grudges or fights!

14. Who is more clean? We are about the same I think. These days I feel like I am a total disaster though, Lacey what was that cleaning ladies number again??? :-)
15. Who has more siblings? Me! I have 3 younger brothers and 3 younger sisters and James has 3 Older brothers.
16. Who wears the pants in the relationship? I think we are pretty equal

17. What do you like to do together? We love going out to eat, watch our lame reality TV shows (the Hills, Laguna Beach, you get the picture) going to St. George, And mostly spend time with our two sweet little kiddos!!!!

18. Who eats more sweets? Me! The Cook family is notorious for our terrible sweet addiction, I get it from my Mom!

19. Guilty pleasures? James' are Coke!!!!, smartees suckers, The First 48, Sports ( I don't think he feels guilty about it though), Naps (which are very hard to come by these days) having internet on his phone and these days Rock Band!!! Mine are: Blogging, buying clothes for my kids, The Office (just started back up again, YAY!!!) and carbs ( I just can't narrow it down there are too many to list)

20. How did you meet? I was 15 and a Sophomore in High School. It was my second day in Sister Morgans Seminary class and James transfered in! I thought he was so cute :-) She introduced him as Moses (his nickname is Mo) and I thought that was his actual name. We spent the rest of the trimester staring at each other from across the room (I was shy). I think the first time we talked was when he called me at my house to hang out (these were the days before cell phones) and we held hands for the first time on Halloween.....the rest is history!

21. Who asked who out first? On a date? Well James asked me to Christmas dance our Sophomore year. I was only 15 and of course wasn't allowed to go to dances until I was 16. He came to our house, dropped off his stuff on my front porch and ran. My dad was pretty clueless and didn't know what was going on, thought someone was trying to vandalize our house so he got in his car and chased James down! I could have died of embarassment! To make matters worse my Dad called James the next morning before school to appologize. I thought my life was over, needless to say I went to the dance. I guess it wasn't quite as bad as the time my Dad announced my sisters first kiss over the pulpit is sacrament meeting! My sweet Dad, he really means well!!!

22. Who kissed who first? James kissed me! Sophomore year, we are cruising in the Escort, Lisa Loebs "I Do" playing in the background. We pull up to my house, akward pause. I go to unbuckle my seat belt as he leans in for the kill, I don't know what to do (it was my first kiss) I quickly peck his teeth and jump out of the car. I was so embarassed, I think I told him thank you before I ran into my house.

23. Who proposed? James! I knew it was coming cause we had already picked out the ring and everything but we went on a hike up Bell Canyon. We hiked to the very top and were almost all the way down. We crossed over the bridge and he stopped to give me a hug. I thought the bridge was shaking but it was him :-) He got down on his knee and pulled out the ring! It was sooo sweet!

24. What is his best feature? The thing that attracted me to him from the first time I saw him was his smile! Sounds cheesy but is so true!
25. What is his best quality? James has so many great qualities! He always tries to make me laugh, he is so goofy and doesn't care what people think, he is very outgoing and can talk to anyone! Is is very sweet and always hleps out around the house, he is such a hard worker and so motivated to provide for our family, and best of all his is an awesome husband and an amazing Dad!!! He loves his kids so much and would do anything in the world for our family! Love you Hun!!!

Now I tag: Shanda, Rachel, Jenny, Mel Faye, Kristi and anyone who hasn't already done it!!!!!!!!

Early Puberty?

Today I was over at my parents house and, as usual Kaden disapeared. I searched only to find him standing in my parents shower pretending to shave his face. I looked closer to see that he had taken the actual razor and tried to shave, like Daddy I am assuming. He had a huge scrape across his cheek, I felt so bad! We got a bandaid and made it all better, but I just have to laugh that he really watches James and wants to copy everything that he does! I guess it is cute until they get hurt, maybe I just need to watch him better ?!!

Poor guy

Here is Payton, she is growing up soooo fast. As her cheeks get chubbier she reminds me more and more of Kaden as a baby. She is so good, sleeping pretty great and that is great for me!
