November happenings...

November came and went and I'm not sure I even took a breath! We were able to fly down to Vegas for a few days to celebrate my dad's 50th birthday. Unfortunately, I only took one pic of my lil' sis and I. We had a fabu time and would love to have another mini vaca. Matt's parents were able to come up to Idaho for Thanksgiving. We enjoyed having them and look forward to my parents at Christmas time. Some of the pics include Scotlyn and Parker playing on the computer. He loves watching her play Webkinz and watching Matt play Farmville on Facebook. Some pics of Scotlyn at the Harvest Festival and helping me make pies. The boys all wintered up at the Harvest Festival and Cooper in his exersaucer, which he no longer like because he wants to always be on the go.

I noticed as I looked at my other posts...Coop gets left out quite a bit. So, this post is devoted just to Cooper. Here are some recent ones of our smiley guy.

What happened in September?

Like I mentioned before...I will do my best to keep this blog updated. The month of September has flown by with a few milestones. Our little girl turned 6 the end of August. We had a tea party for her with a few friends. She loved it! Her favorite snack now is cucumber sandwiches with butter. She also started 1st grade and Parker started preschool. They both seem to be enjoying themselves. I went back to work part time. This makes for busy week days...but such nice, relaxing weekends. Lil' Coop gets to be with me in the classroom...I have a great co-teacher! The kids love him and make lists of who gets to hold him at recess. One month down, only 8 months to go! My mom was able to bring my grandparents up for a visit before it got too cold for them here. We had a wonderful time (no pics though ):) . Cooper has started to get up on all 4 and move back and forth getting ready to crawl. I not sure I am quite ready for that. All in all we had a great month. We're happy fall is here and welcome the crisp and cold mornings! We'll see you at the end of October for Halloween pics.

Last Sunday we took one of Matt's friends plane up for a spin around the city. P loves airplanes, maybe he'll take after Matt!
My mother was in 7th heaven on this vacation! We had a wonderful time in Southern CA. We left Wednesday morning (7/22), picked up my mom and Scotlyn in Hurricane then headed to Las Vegas to have dinner with Matt (he was there for work). P started to not feel so well so we got him some Motrin and headed to state line to stay the night. All through the night he kept waking up and had a raging fever. So, @ 6 the next morning I ran him and Coop (also not feeling well) into Vegas to an Insta Care. After driving around for 2 hours looking for one that would take my insurance, they sent me to the Children's ER for a pediatric dr. Long story short....after a$200 copay and Augmentin, we were on our way to CA. We had a great day in the Magical Kingdom and yes...It is the happiest place on earth! We also got to visti my cousin Jin and her great family. Brandon, her son, had a birthday at a great bounce house place. We ate lots of great Mexican food and spent a day at the beach. My camera ran out of batteries so I have no pics of the beach. As you can see from the pics P was very tired and just fell asleep just about anywhere! Scotlyn also enjoyed her nana dressing up as a princess with her on our trip to the Magical Park. Eat your heart out have nothing on these princesses! Scotlyn also lost her first tooth while there. The tooth fairy was able to find us...but only had big bills so, she got a $20 bill for her first tooth! We all need CA tooth fairies.

Our trip to Disneyland!

We took the kids to the local minor league baseball game. They had a great time eating junk food and playing in the stands...don't think they watched much of the game. They like the stomping of feet when our home team got a run! Parker liked the ice cream the best, Scotlyn liked the Chucker bird the best, and Coop was just happy to be held.

Happy July to all! I've finally realized that I just can't keep up with it all...even taking a break from work through the summer. So...I think I'll stick to just one post a month and if I can fit in more I will! Here are some 4th of July pics. Parker had a pretty rough day not napping at the right time and being afraid of the loud bang of fireworks. As long as Coop had his bink, he was good. Our little princess was just happy all the way around!

Here are some June pictures of our kiddies. Of course when you have an older sister, you will most likely play with dolls and one of P's favorite toy is a baby stroller which Scotlyn graciously gave to him. He is so in love with Cooper that he always wants to love on him. Coopers not too sure about it sometimes, but sits while Parker pets him. Scotlyn is also very excited to show off her new glasses. She loves them and wants to wear them all the time but only needs them for reading and watching tv. We managed to get a great pic of Cooper smiling...I think he had gas.

It's been a month since I last posted some pics of our new little here are some new ones. We are down south in Utah visiting some family while Matt goes on a motorcycle trip with some friends. We had a great time. Cooper is now just over a month old and Parker seems to be enjoying being the big brother.
