My sister sent this to me that she found on her camera......
oh the cute little munchkins they were....before the chiclet teeth! Of course this was probably taken right before a brawling match between the two...oh the innocence of a picture!

Better late than never....right?! At least it's before Thanksgiving!

This is the first year that Crew would keep a costume on...exciting times

Cade was a little bummed that the "ride" was not that exciting....."this sure isn't like Disneyland"......keep in mind as they rode off, his hands were up in the air like he was on a roller coaster

The Halloween get along gang at the ward party

These came in a little blurry.....but you get the picture

We might have traumatized our children with our costumes this year.....but it's all in good fun!.......... There's always therapy....I was just about ready to post this when I noticed the temple picture in the background....hmmmm are there any rules about cross dressing?!

I had to shake my head when I came back from grocery shopping to find
this "setup" that Paul made

I'm pretty sure Cade was kinda into this...just guessing

Further evidence of why I will never be Mother of the Year.....
Whenever I download my pictures I will find pics and videos that the kids have "constructed"

Long Overdo....Happy September Birthdays to Clayton and Caden!

Of course there was probably a cuter picture of the boys, but why put that one on when there's this fabulous "morning" photo

Bounce U exhaustion

Paul always takes it too far
Who wouldn't want to take one of these kids home?!....precious....each one!

My sweet Aunt Sue and Uncle Dan invited us to their place in Rocky Point.....

Forget Disneyland, I'm pretty sure the beach is the happiest place on earth!

First off, we have Pancho Villo here holding a stingray.....gotta love the $6 glasses...HOT!

The kids were ready to hit the ocean for some the back is their cousin Kai

I'd like to say I did the fading around the pic on purpose for "effect", but no it's my crappy camera....this was Cole and Kenna's favorite spot...the quad

Here's Pancho again doing what he does best....manual labor

You can't deny the smiles....that's if you can make them out through the fogginess of the picture....they were real I tell ya!

Since I haven't taken any pics lately, I'll show you some treasures that the kids like to take pics of.....

They just had to download this pic because it was so cool....I heard about it for days!

So this is one of the Halo guys situated on the "camouflage bedspread" for
added effect..awesome

Yes, those are his Sunday shoes...he's always up for gettin fancy

LET FREEDOM RING (until 2:15 at least)......Almost...Crew and I are still bosom buddies for a few years, but how can I complain when he's as cute as he is! :)

The weekend before school started, we headed to Pinetop for a family reunion....a very good time!
Here's Cade with his fabulous cousin Blayke!

That would be Paul and Cade......this is a picture of what he'll look like driving in the future when he's 85 (Cade that is)

Crew just loved sweet little Navy.....always saying, "Mom, I need to hold the baby now!"

Okay so this video cracks me up for so many reasons....hear are a few......
1) Do I really sound like that? Ugh!
2) Am I always that bossy?
3) Really Crew.....fingers?! Let's be's killing me!

Random summerness:

The boys are hoping their "cruise ship" will be published in the Lego magazine.....yeah the boys fight over that magazine as soon as it arrives!

In the first video, Clay wanted to demonstrate his "skilz" and the 2nd one is the epitome of what happens when they swim.......crap everywhere in the pool (not literal crap, but you know what I mean), Copper barking cause he thinks he should be a part of it, and Crew doing whatever the other boys are basically random crazy things!

This past weekend we went up to Greer to my sis in laws cabin and most of the Miller side were present and accounted for........Of course when I left on Monday, Cole and Clay had to stay with their second mom Aunt Erin for a few more days....they love it there!

Crew and Cade being Crew and Cade
We went "Crawdog" fishing (that's how it is said in Crew language) and it was actually fun....despite the fact that the crawdads look like a combination of scorpions and cockroaches
2 of my most hated creatures
No words need to be said about the beauty that is this pic....but I thought I would put some evidence of me actually being there.......
Photo courtesy of Caden...hey at least my heads not cut off
Never mind the stepford wives smiles Cole and Cade are donning.......they were having a fabulous time......promise :)
Yep, here's Crew spreading his vast knowledge of finger sucking to his cousin Bryce
good job're awesome
As per requested by my sis Jami

For the 4th last weekend, we went to Tucson and stayed in a hotel........

So when we finally pulled our heads out, Paul started using his phone for pics

This is the Ostrich farm we found on the way back from we stopped and hung out

Clay was loving these birds

The boys were having a contest to see who could get the most to land on them......I think it was me that won....they all flocked to me...:)  Just call me the bird lady...when I'm sixty, I'll be the lady down on Main St. with bird poop on her shoulder!

We loved feeding these cute little deer....the ostrich on the other word.....
I had one come at my head.....what is it with me and animals?!

Me hanging out with my jackasses....oh and the kids

The fun just never ends!

I don't know who's idea it was to put all their ties, belts and every pair of underwear they own on, but it's what's known as "gettin fancy"....according to Caden
Crew came out all 'dressed' up and said...."Look at me mom....I'm fancy pants!"

In June, Clay was in a play with his cousin Mac......yes, I did say Clay.....And hell has definitely not frozen over

I told Crew to get in the bath one night and he came right up next to my face (cause I was on my knees getting the water going) and he said "Yes Sir"and saluted I made him repeat it for me on this video

O.k. so I thought I'd post this funny conversation I had with my 6 year old yesterday so I wouldn't forget.......

CADE:  "Mom, I don't want to get married and have kids"
Me:  (thinking...."Oh crap have I traumatized him that much?)......"Why Cade?"
CADE:  "Because I don't think I'm going to find a girl to marry.....what if I don't, Mom?  What will I do then?" 
Me:  "Cade, you're a cute kid, you'll find a girl"
CADE:  "Yeah, but dad found you at school and there might not be a girl at school for me"
Me:  "Let's not worry just yet.....Mom and Dad will find you a girl if you can't  :)"
CADE:  "Alright"

It was Cole's 11th birthday yesterday! His Grandma Harper took him shopping and for some lunch and then we went as a family to Big Surf for the afternoon.....when we got back his grandma and grandpa Miller brought him over a gift and his sweet Aunt Tammy made him a delicious cake......all in all a good day!  When I was tucking him in he said "Mom, it was a really great day!"  If only every day could be this great....

side note:  disregard the scary face Clay is making...he always tries to get in the pic.....I don't know where he gets that from...:)...Aunt Jami?!It's a tradition now to decorate their rooms for the morning they always tell me they knew I was in there room decorating because they were awake....yeah right....not many people can snore and also be awake :)

Cole is moving on to 11 Year old scouts.  But he's sure going to miss his fabulous Webelos leaders Norma and Peggy...they were absolutely great!
Before school ended Crew and I went and saw Clay's skit he did at school...Crew thought he was living big going into his classroom and sitting on the big chairs!

See if you can pick him up out of the crowd...that kid cracks me up

Here's the crew that came to hear Cole at his violin concert
I'm not sure who these people are :) but they were standing next to Cole, so I snapped a shot anyway
IT'S SWIMMIMG TIME:  EVERYDAY!?!  By the way, they have been swimmimg since mid April...crazy yes!
sidenote:  I'm not sure I would have chosen this particular name for the life jacket
I know major snuggy right?!  But at least it's better than his last "life jacket" with the built in blue spandex shorts....he's just excited to be out with the boys!
