Christmas Baking Time

I love this time of year, being home baking Christmas cookies and candy and just relaxing with my crew! Our first batch of cookies are snowflakes and they turned out yummy! I made a glaze for them and the kiddos sprinkled them with colored sugars. Tomorrow we will start our gingerbread men cookies.. can't wait!

The finished product

Micayla's Cheering Debut

Micayla spent all week in cheer clinic with the Sr. High cheerleaders at Shiloh, and last night she got to cheer at the Sr. High playoff game against Dequeen, who we beat, by the way :).
Below she's holding her "C" sign that she made to go with part of a "SCS'' cheer that they did.

Waiting patiently on the sidelines for the Dequeen band to leave the field.

Micayla and her favorite cheerleader, Brooke.. sorry it blurred sissy :( (mommy needs a new camera for Christmas) ;)

Micayla's Thanksgiving Program

This was by far one of the best Thanksgiving programs I have ever attended! The kiddos sang so many songs and Micayla knew every song and motion, it was very cute. It amazes me how these little ones memorize so much, they are all very sweet. HAPPY THANKSGIVING EVERYONE!!

My little Sunflower Daisy (her indian name)

Below is Micayla with her book that we had dedicated to her for the library.

So thanks to all who bought cookie dough from Micayla and made this ride possible!! She had a great time.

Fall Carnival

This year Deric's class (the Juniors) put on the Carnival at school. Deric's booth was the ice booth and Micayla loved it!! She sat in ice at least 3 times .

Below was the Wheel of Fortune game.. what ever number you land on is how many pieces of candy you would get

Below Micayla and Aca raced on tricycles and bikes with training wheels, very funny! Overall it turned out to be a great carnival !!
