Maya's First Addiction

Milk? No.
The binky? Not even close.
Her blankie? Nope, not that either.

It's ELMO. Don't even TRY to get her attention when he comes on. Elmo is her drug. She is mesmerized!

Sing it with me! "La la la la, la la la la..Elmo's world!"

Big Fat Dose of Reality

What is WRONG with these folks??

Like a car wreck - you don't want to see, but you just HAVE to look. It's gonna be hard to resist putting this on the dvr.

Talk me out of it! Please!

Maya Meets the Cooper Cousins

We made our annual trip to Southern Utah in August - it was an interesting trip...I'll do another post about my parent's house being destroyed by a flash flood soon (*heavy sigh*). Despite all the loss at my folk's home, we Cooper girls still manage to enjoy being together!

One of the perks of the week was for Dylan - ANOTHER birthday party! Hey, any excuse for cake is a good one. He was most excited about the gigantic 9 candle, but was a little disappointed when he discovered that it was not edible. Can't win 'em all, buddy.

Sammy loved playing with Maya, and as you can see, Maya loved spending time with Sammy! Doesn't she look like one of those little troll dolls here? You know, the kind that you spin and their hair sticks up? Ha! Crazy baby...

Zack and Ivy. Best cousin-buds from day 1. Still going strong.

Dylan and Sammy. They had a great time playing together!

Mia is happy to be playing with Maya, but Sadie seems less than thrilled...

This "who the heck are you" face is the look that Taylor gave me for about the first entire day I was there - then I finally got a smile out of her!

Saved the best for last. My sweet Grandpa, Dana Pratt - age 90...with his newest great-granddaughter Maya. This is the best photo I have EVER taken. Love them both to pieces!

Happy Birthday Dylan!

Hey, remember my OTHER kids not named Maya? Me too. Dylan turned the big 9 in August - and we had a pool party to celebrate his momentous arrival into the world. A good time was had by all.

Here is the D-man getting ready to blow out his candle on the cupcakes...

This is me, overacheiving again. Here are the cupcakes! For his POOL party. Get it? Get it?

Here are the goodies that all the party goers took home with them. A beach towel and a sucker with a thank you note from Dylan. Before you think I splurged too much, Old Navy had a wicked good sale on beach towels! I simply could NOT resist.

The gaggle of BOYS!! What a bunch! Dylan is the nutty one at the head of the table. (Like our new patio table? Me too!)

Here they all are by our pool - they somewhat willingly obliged me and got out of the pool for about 2 seconds so I could snap this shot. Ten boys in a pool is crazy!

Dylan had a great time - and I survived! That's the most a mother can really ask for, right?

Cause You Just Never Know Who Might Be Baking Your Pie

When we recently traveled to Utah to visit my family, we drove over Cedar Mountain and through Mt. Carmel Junction, Utah - where apparently, all the pies there are made by Ho's.


(Yes, Matt pulled over JUST so I could take this picture. I was giggling like a schoolgirl, while Dylan said, "what's so funny? What's a Ho?")

As Soon As Summer is Over...

...and the kids are back in school, I'm comin' back, blog-world.

Fear me, if you dare.

Meanwhile, check out my cute baby girl! She is already 6 months old!
Oh, and I have two boys, too...remember them? I think they are around here SOMEWHERE...
