Snow Day Fun

When it snows a couple inches or more around here, pretty much everything is closed. I used to think this was ridiculous, but they are just not prepared to take care of the roads and nobody has snow tires, etc. so it really is for the best. Plus, who doesn't love a snow day! Molly & Luke had some daddy-daughter bonding time and made a snowman and went sledding. It was really cute & they had so much fun. Molly has been talking about it ever since!

Fun in the snow.

The snow wasn't quite right to make a snowman but they did their best.

Christmas Pictures

Christmas already seems like it was so long ago--and really, I guess it was. We have just all been trying to get the house ready for baby brother and fighting the flu so bad that I haven't gotten a chance to update the blog. So here is a summary of our Christmas through pictures.

Baking cookies for Santa.
Opening presents at Matt & Emily's house on Christmas day.

Molly waiting for Santa on Christmas Eve after we returned from church.
Molly got to open 1 present on Christmas Eve and she chose one from Grandma Leila. A "baby jaguar" (like in Go Diego Go) vest and a singing reindeer. Way to go Grandma!
We all had a nice Christmas and although we didn't have to go through the stress of traveling, it didn't quite feel like the holidays without it. I guess that has become a part of our lives and probably always will be, as I sure was missing everyone back in Montana.

Our New Niece

 The first of the new Miller babies has arrived! My sister-in-law, Emily, and I were both about to "pop" at Christmas. However, she was about 2 months closer than I am.

Me at just over 29 weeks & Emily at about 37 weeks.
Our new niece, Sage Lorena, was born last weekend & we went to visit them in the hospital. She's just perfect! Congrats to Matt & Emily and we can't wait to watch Sage grow up.

Remembering how small a newborn is.
Not even a day old yet!

We hope that they have all made it through the first week okay-it only gets easier from here! (for the most part anyhow)
