first speech tournament

After the play was over this fall, Katelyn's new group of friends talked her into trying out for speech and she made it! She was put into the "humorous" category and had her very first tournament down in Marshall MN this weekend. She is on the bus on her way home right now so I'm not sure how she did, but I think she was pretty nervous before they left yesterday. She tried on her new "speech suit" on Thursday night just to make sure everything fit. Cooper asked her why she was dressed up like Sarah Palin.And because I just can't help it, a couple more pictures of Mya.

Grandma Sandi gave Katelyn a whole bunch of "baking goodies" for Christmas, and she has been busy baking up a storm lately. She is in a "foods" class at school this semester (quarter, trimester... I forget) so has lots of recipes she's been trying out. Last night I came home to her baking 4 dozen cookies for a "potluck" in history class. (Thanks Bonnie... she used every last drop of butter and I had to go to the store just so I could make supper!) Glad she likes to bake since I really really hate it. And in case you were wondering how little Mya is doing... she is great! I think she is adjusting to life at our busy house quite nicely. She is eating well, getting bigger, doing pretty good at potty training and having a ball playing with her big sister Emme.
Emme seems to be tolerating her okay... but gets a little annoyed when Mya bites on her tail or hangs from her ears. She has been sharing her favorite napping spot with her though, so she must not think Mya is too bad!

We were so excited to watch the big Vikings game tonight... Oh... it is so painful to be a Vikings fan.

our new baby

This is Emme's new baby sister Mya! We just got her last night at the pet store... that darn place gets me every time! Just couldn't resist this cute face. She is a "morkie" [maltese/yorkie cross] just like Emme, but looks much more like a yorkie! She is up at the studio helping me work today and has already had her first photoshoot.
