Easter and more...

So, what has been happening around here lately?? Hmmm... a couple of weeks ago I had to leave Cohen and Chad at home for two days while I went on our staff retreat. When I returned home Cohen had made a sign for me that welcomed me home. Man, was I happy to get home to my boys! A couple of days later we left to go to Austin for the State Basketball Tournament. Chad goes every year, but this year he let Cohen and I go with him. Kevin and Kellie live in Austin, so really for Cohen and I it was just a trip to see them. I did get to see 3 games, and Cohen saw 2. But that doesn't compare to the 18 Chad watched! What's even more interesting is that he watches that many every year and he can probably tell you who won in the 2nd round of 2A 5 years ago....or any other obscure piece of basketball knowledge you want to know. Here is a picture of Cohen with his Aunt Kellie. We took his bath tub along with us and Kellie decided to hop in with him.

This year's basketball banquet was a little sad. This group of graduating seniors is the class that Chad has had since they were Freshmen when he first started coaching 4 years ago. They went to the 3rd round in playoffs and were the District Champs this year!

This is Luke, one of Chad's favorite students and players.

We had a great Easter. Saturday we had our All-Church Picnic and Easter Egg Hunt with around 600 people. It was fun, but I'm not sure Cohen knew what to think of it all.

Sunday we woke up to see what the Easter Bunny had brought us. Since I work in the "church world" I have to be at our church on Easter and Christmas, so my parents usually come and stay with us so that we can all be together. Yes, the Easter Bunny still comes to see us all...Cohen got 2 Easter baskets. One from Grammy and Papa and one from Mom and Dad. He got a pair of Batman sunglasses in his basket and didn't want to take them off.

Still sporting the glasses...

My little Eskimo Joe!

My mom sent me these pics that she took with her camera. You can kind of see the t-shirt they bought him in the bottom picture. It's his first Eskimo Joe shirt! We got his 6 month pics taken today, so I will post those next week when I get them back.

The Big News....

Ok, first let me say that for those of you guys that actually care, I am so sorry to keep you waiting for my "big news." I really thought I was going to be able to post it weeks ago. So, here it is.....
I have started my own company called Cassy Lawson Events. Some of you already knew this so i'm sure you're somewhat disappointed and are going, "that is it? That's not news!" Anyway I wanted to wait until my website was done before I announced it and it's pretty much done now. It is
If you have anyone who is planning a birthday party, wedding, reunion, corporate event, non-profit event (you get the idea), send them my way! I'm doing my services for about 1/2 of the going DFW rate right now in order to build my business.

We're in Austin right now at the Basketball State Tournament so I don't have pics with me to post. Cohen turned 6 months this past week. He's starting to look more like a little boy and less like a baby everyday! Somebody help... I need to figure out how to freeze time!

His sleeping is doing better. Of course, we have been praying for months about his sleep. I was on our staff retreat Sun-Tues and while I was there I had some of our intercessors pray for him. When I called Chad on Monday to check in and see how they were doing he said, "you will never believe what Cohen did last night... he slept through the night!" I said, "I know." He slept through the night for the next 3 nights. He didn't last night, but I just chalk that up to being out of town... he had to sleep in his Pack N Play last night which is not the most comfortable thing in the world! All that to say...sometimes you just need someone to interceed on your behalf!
