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 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 for 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!

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.

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.

Dads vs. Colonial boys team

Saturday morning the Dads played against the Kids hockey team. The moms got to cheer from the stands, which I preferred considering I can only skate forward! At one point the boys cleared the bench to jump on coach Murphy. Brandon even briefly filled in for the goalie when he decided to go after another dad! When coach Furst made a few "unfair" moves around the boys his wife shouted "Does it make you feel good to beat an 11 year old." Very enteraining morning!

Zach's 1st Lacrosse Game

Zach played his very first lacross game for the Middle School. The winter season is held indoor at 422sportsplex. The coach said he did not believe Zach never played before because the very first time Zach got the ball: he caught it, ran up the field and made a shot on goal. Coach Kasey said Zach was going to make a great player! The team won 10-8. We didn't get pictures this time (they turned out really dark).

Zachary went to his first lacrosse practice last night. He really liked it. I couldn't believe how much lacrosse equipment cost!! I thought hockey was expensive!! I'll keep you posted with the schedule and games.
