December 2011, Happy New Year 2012, Coop's First Day of School, and Scot's Cheer

Scotlyn started cheerleading in September. She had her first performance Jan. 17, 2012. We are so proud of her and how hard she practiced. She came home everyday and practiced her splits and jumps. She is 8 years and 5 months.

She was the highest jumper out on the floor. She had so much fun and loved every minute of it.

One week after the new year, I was told that we had one spot open in our preschool program. So with that little news we quickly got kicked into high gear and potty trained Mr. Cooper. He was fully potty trained in two days!!! Yahoo! He was also completely without diapers, even at night, by 4 days. I was so proud of him. Here he is in his first preschool performance at Barnes & Noble singing his little heart out. Cooper is 2 years and 8 months. Parker is 3 years and 9 months.

Scotlyn cheering again!!!

First day of school pictures. He was so happy to be able to carry his own lunch box. He called SRMS "Parker's School" for so long that that name stuck and now that's still what he calls it. He still loves going everyday and tells me when I pick him up what a big boy he is now.

Grandchildren with Grandma & Grandpa Mikkelson at New Years

Happy New Year 2012!!! G&G Mikkelson were up visiting with us. We also had Debbie and Logan over for the night to play games and eat lots of junk food. The kids had a blast playing Wii, Skip Bo, letting off poppers, and just being silly.

Such hams these little boys are...

We were able to take the kids ice skating over the break. It was really hard for the boys. I had Parker and Wendy had Cooper and it took us both about 30 min. to get around the whole rink and that was it. The boys were tired and their feet hurt so, they sat up in the window gallery with Matt and watched us all skate the whole time. Then Scotlyn hurt her ankle so we ended up only being there about an hour total time.

Christmas Time!!! I was really short on taking pictures during Christmas. There was so much going on that I forgot and spaced it. Nana & Papa Novak came up from down south and spent some time with us. We had fun and the kids did some baking with Nana. We all watched for the first time "It's a Wonderful Life".
