This Thanksgiving...

I have SO MUCH to be Thankful for!!!!
I was especially thankful that my little Sister Jamie was here to spend the Holiday with!!!
There is no one in this world like her and when she is around life is just better! She makes everyone around her happy and brings spunk to our family. It has felt so good to be with her!
I am so Thankful for these two!!!
They are always so good to have us up to there house and they make every holiday so much fun.
We can always count on having the yummiest food and they are so good to our kids.
One of my greatest blessings of my life was being raised in their home with their great examples!

I am so Thankful to have Jason as my very best friend!
I am Thankful for good kids and that they all have their cousins as their best friends!
They always love to go to Grandma's because they all have so much fun with their cousins.

Lucy has been counting down the days until Dax and Jace would be here.
She has told every neighbor, friend, and teacher 100 times each that her best buddies were coming from Arizona.

I am Thankful for the delicious food we ate all day long.
We had the yummiest Thanksgiving Feast at Grandma and Grandpa Miller's this year. Craig woke up at 4:30 cook the most delicious turkey you have ever tasted. All the food was delicious, especially the Chocolate Sundae Pie (of course) and Muriel's s'more pie. To bad I didn't have my camera with me to capture it all. But I am very grateful for the greatest in-laws in the world. They have always treated me like I was one of them, and are always so good to me and our family!
I am grateful that we live close to both of our families and that we get to spend the holiday's with both of them!
We spent Thanksgiving night up at Wallsburg. Which meant more food! Emilee couldn't pass up her Grandpa's famous mashed potatoes and gravy.
And Jenny made the yummiest homemade apple pie.
And yes, I ate them all!

I am SO very thankful that I get to spend my days with this cute little pumpkin.
A day never goes by that I am not SO thankful that I get to be a stay home mom and be with my kids from morning to night.

I am Thankful to have the greatest brothers and sisters in the world!
I am so glad that we were all so close in age growing up and that we got to go to school together, share rooms, and grow up as best friends. I am grateful that we are still close, even if my sisters do live to far away. At least I have my two great brothers to keep me laughing and our family gatherings exciting.
I am so thankful for my amazing sister Kelly, who I miss so much! It has been way to long since I have seen her and her family. But every time we talk on the phone, she brightens my whole week. I always feel like we have so much in common and that she understands every thing I am going through each day. It has been the best to go through every stage of life with her. Whether she is in Florida or Chicago, I feel close to her every time I hear her voice.

I am Thankful for the the fun memories I have of playing this fun penny flip game as a kid.
And I am pretty sure I rocked at it.

And I am Thankful that Matt C. and Jamie were willing to set off the fireworks outside for the kids entertainment even if it was -4 degrees.
The rest of us really enjoyed watching them from inside the house by the warm fire. Jayne is still talking about it along with Grandpa's stunt of putting the ball in his ear.

I am Thankful to be in a family of so many cute girls.
And a talented Sister and Mother who can whip up head bands for us all like they are nothing but a thing.
And last but not least, I am Thankful to have the GREATEST family in the world!
Nothing makes me happier than spending each day with these 6 people. I love being a mom, a wife, and learning and growing each day as we get to experience all the excitement that life brings to our family. I am grateful to be a Miller and am so glad that we will get to spend FOREVER together as a family!

Happy Thanksgiving!

My CUTE little Indian!

Abbie's Pow Wow was a BIG deal!
If you have never had Miss Mather for a teacher you are definately missing out!
Abbie has been preparing all month. She had her parts memorized, and talked me into wearing "big" earrings and a little makeup for the big event. She called me that morning at school and asked me if I would check her out at lunch time to touch up her make up and make sure she was completely ready. When I asked her if any one else had make up on she said, "no." Then I asked if any other mom's were checking out there kids at lunch and again she said "no." But of course that didn't matter, she wanted everything to be perfect for the big performance.

As you can tell she did a FABULOUS job!

Abbie and McKayla

And of course Abbie's favorite part was the yummy feast after.
We Love You Spunky Coyote!

Em's a Volleyball Rockstar

This picture sums up our Volleyball experience this year.
Every game and practice came with a little ATTITUDE!
Her mom talked her into playing and she tried to act like she didn't like it.
But deep down, she loved every second of it!

With a few tips from her Dad Emilee became a serving pro.

Of course... she didn't like to listen to any advice.
And if you know Jason, you know he just can't resist.

Who dere's got dat Viking Pride?
Who Dere... Who dere?
(The Viking Cheer was the best part of every game. Especially when Jason would start chanting it to Emilee right in the middle of the game.)

Thanks Emilee for the fun Saturday mornings.
You truly do ROCK!
