February at the Hawkes

This will come as big shocker to any of you that follow my blog (is there even anyone that does anymore)?  I am a total LAMO BLOGGO.  So to add to the "Lamo" I am posting all of February's event on one post.  
One a month is better than zero... right?

FEBRUARY at the HAWKES......

We celebrated 3 birthdays....
Cody turned 3, Braydon turned 8 and I turned 29 (again)!

Cody requested a Little Einsteins Rocket Cake and this was the outcome... I have to say, I was quite proud of it, it was SO out of my league... 
birthday cakes at our house always come from Costco.  

Cody and his cousin Carter playing on Cody's new "Rocket" laptop.

We took Cody to the Playhouse Disney concert at the ESA.   
He absolutely loved it!

Braydon took a couple of friends to Chuck-E-Cheese to celebrate!  
(much easier than hosting at the house) ... 
(check out Cooper (below), he is sucking on the back of the chair, not just any chair... a chair at CHUCK-E-CHEESE... good-grief, and I wonder how he got sick? ... I deserve mom of the year award for that one)

... this was how we spent our Valentines weekend.  Rocking my sick little guy.  I was so bummed that we had to cancel our plans.  I had planned a great surprise for Adam and had arranged for my niece to spend the night with the boys.  I got a hotel room, made dinner reservations and even made a visit to Victorias...  
I was really looking forward to some one-on-one time with my man.  

... this was a month full of sickos, all winter we have passed junk around but poor little Cooper got hit the worst with it.  He got pneumonia and RSV and had to spend 5 days in the hospital.  

They suctioned his nose so many times that he had a permanent bloody nose for a couple of days.  Through it all he was still smiling.  I wish I could have said the same for myself.

we have HOPE
that winter will eventually end.
I just wanted to post this picture because there is sunshine in it and the boys are playing OUTSIDE!!!!!

I can honestly say that I don't remember a busier month.  I am thankful that this happens to be the shortest month of the year and that it is OVER! ...  well, almost... we still have 1 more birthday and a baptism this weekend. 

Thanks to all of you that helped while Cooper was in the hospital:  Mom, Dallas, Lisa, Lex, Sterling, Jamie, Amber, Becki, Caradon, Emmy Lou, Josh and Stacey.  You are all lifesavers and I love your dearly!

UTE parade

Random photos from the Ute parade and meet and greet. 
 The boys had an incredible time meeting the players and coaches.

Braydon can't wait to play for Coach Witt (like his dad).  :)
