Thanksgiving at the Millers


We had a houseful of guests for Thanksgiving dinner AND the food was scrumptous! Since we had a lot of guests, I put our 3 dogs in the bedroom. We didn't want any stolen turkey! Later in the day I went to let the dogs out only to find they had locked my bedroom door. I have no idea how it happened. Tiffani had to take the door apart to get to the dogs! They were so happy to see us!!! (and finally get some turkey). The doggie adventure does not end there! Ellie went outside to run around, when she came back in her paws were very muddy. She decided to jump all over Kyle. If you look in the pictures below you will see Kyle in two different outfits. It is because he went home to change after Ellie got him dirty! :)

Fall picture

Todd went out with Brandon to take pictures. I really liked this one. It shows how pretty the colors are this time of year. I don't know if I'll be blogging the next few days. I hope everyone has a happy Thanksgiving! We have about 25 family members who come to my house for an early dinner. Over the weekend we are going to try to decorate f0r Christmas - in between hockey games!! :)

From the mouths of babes....

Monday Memories

These are some of my favorite pictures of Brandon and Zachary sledding down a steep hill at Lincoln Elementary school. It was the winter before we moved into our new home.

My Hockey Man!

John's Birthday

John turned 20. No longer a teenager! Brandon helped make him a cake. I had it on the kitchen counter - we left the room for a few mintues and when we came back - we caught Riley jumping up trying to get the cake!! You can see in the picture where his paw got a part of the cake. We almost didn't have a birthday cake!

Going to see TWILIGHT (movie) tonight with my friend, Joette. Can't wait, can't wait, can't wait! I ordered pizza for the boys. Todd is running late, but hopefully will be home in time before I have to dash out the door.
Saturday morning and Sunday night Brandon has hockey games. Saturday is home, but Sunday in in Atlantic City, NJ (about 3 hours away - ug!). Luckily Zach doesn't have lacrosse.
I hope everyone has a good weekend! Catch up with you on Monday! :)

It's Snowing!!!

It was only supposed to flurry off and on today. Well... it's been snowing all day! The ground has been to warm for the snow to lay (if you consider 30 degrees warm).

Thankful Thursday

I know this is an old picture (taken in 1999). I am thankful that God has given me a wonderful husband and three active boys. I am also grateful for the time I've been given to watch them grow into wonderful young men.

All is right in the world again. Jack Bauer is Back!

24: Redemption (Sunday, Nov. 23 at 8 pm/ET, Fox), a riveting two-hour prequel to January's seventh season is a shot of pure adrenaline and deluxe action filmmaking. Jack, ducking a federal subpoena, once again plays reluctant hero, the last hope to help evacuate schoolchildren from a violent African coup — with no help from smarmy diplomats or a cartoonishly sniveling U.N. weasel.

James Bond

Brandon and I went to see the new James Bond movie on Friday night. Although I liked the first film Daniel Craig made better than this one - it still was a nice on the eyes (if you know what I mean ladies). If you like these types of movies, I would recommend seeing it. It is filled with a lot of action scenes that keep you in suspense!!

Happy Thanksgiving

Prozac Thanksgiving

Gobble, gobble

Ahren and I were driving home from work when we saw wild turkeys. I stopped to take their picture and the dogs went crazy! The picture is blurry because the turkeys started running when they heard to dogs barking.

First signs of winter

I woke up today to a very cold bedroom. brrrr. It was so nice under the blankets, I didn't want to get up! I confess, I took an extra 15 minutes just laying their enjoying the warmth. The dogs bouncing on the bed, barking, and trying to tell me they had to go potty, convinced me to get up. I was surprised to see a little bit of snow on the ground. Although it is November, this is the first day for the temperature to drop in the 30s.

Morgans visit

Morgan slept over Saturday. She got to play with Brandon, feed Ellie her cookies and go to Zachary's lacrosse game. With such a busy day she slept all night! Sunday she went to church and make a "turkey" hat for Thanksgiving.

Brandon's View

Brandon has been taking photos since he was about 8 years old. He shares his fathers passion of photography. I created a blog in order to show some of his photos. I know I am his mom - but I think he has a talent!!!

Monday Memories

Don't think of him as gone away -
his journey's just begun,
life holds so many facets -
this earth is only one.

Just think of him as resting
from the sorrows and the tears
in a place of warmth and comfort
where there are no days and years.

Think of how he must be wishing
that we could know today
how nothing but our sadness
can really pass away.

And think of him as living
in the hearts of those he touched...
for nothing loved is ever lost-
and he was loved so much.
