Brayden's (and Brianna's, but she was at school) new thing is climbing trees! And our backyard is great for this! :) Last week, Brayden insisted that I bring out the camera and take some pictures of him climbing the tree to share with everyone. So, here they are! I call him my little monkey because, it doesn't matter where we are (at the YMCA, in the house, outside) this kid just loves to climb!
Brianna was so excited that she woke us up at 2 a.m. to let us know that the tooth fairy had come and brought her some money (can you believe that the going rate around here is $2...I remember when it used to be a quarter!), a special note, and she even let her keep her tooth! I tell you what...that is one nice tooth fairy! It sure is wonderful being a parent and getting to relive your childhood through your own kids.
Almost everyday Brayden asks me if I can get a box down from the attic for him. And usually I say no. But today, I actually said Yes! And this is what my excited little boy did with it for a couple of hours! :) Little boys and their imagination! Gotta love it!

Here are a couple of pictures from Brianna and Brayden's first day of school. Brianna is going into 1st grade and couldn't be more excited! Brayden is starting Pre-School at Brianna's school and was so excited to ride the big yellow school bus for the first time today. Last year, I cried when Brianna rode the bus for the very first time. But this year, I was okay. There was a moment when I thought...I can't believe that I'm sending my little boy away with a total stranger....but then it passed as quickly as it came! We love their school and are so grateful for a "free" great education system in our country. So study hard kids!!!
Or should I say the Awesome Rasmussen's from Arizona, and the Groovy Miller's in Chicago! We feel so blessed to have such wonderful family, even though we live way to far from eachother, it is such a blessing to be surrounded by such wonderful people whenever we can! And all those crazy kids!!! Just LOVE them all to pieces!
While we were on vacation in NY, we decided to get a few updated family pics!
It's always a miracle if you can get everyone to smile at the same time. And surprisingly, our kids did okay this time! :)
And of course, what would we ever do without Trevor, Kendall, and Kyle???
Not to mention, the wonderful Ohio side of the family, Heather and Hannah!
And where would we be without our amazing Mom and Dad Miller? :) We love you all so much!
