Summer Rain

 The last day of summer vacation left us with this...
Dumping rain!

Every little girl knows what a selfy is...
 Canned peaches and tried to make pasta sauce using our millions of tomatoes!

Some one has to watch Jayne! Lucy has the touch!

The first day of school for my middle school kids!
  Alley in High School
Claire and Elizabeth in Elementary and of course I can't forget my Homies!  Reese, Bennett and Jayne.

School Pictures

 My little Bennetto!  
He is such a cute little stinker!
He loves tractors and trains.

She's my little helper at home with all the kids gone at school.  
She has really stepped up and is so kind.
 She reminds me why 4 is my favorite age!

2nd grade
I love these pictures of her because they capture her personality!
She is always "trying" to do good, unfortunately she is a bit of a space cadet mixed with a cults, a very interesting combo!

 My Lovely Lizzy
She is in 4th grade and strives for perfection.
She sets goals and meets them, she is quite remarkable!

Brady Boy
He is in 6th grade, at the middle school,
this year he decided that he would make everyone in the school his friend.  He is succeeding, he says he gives 200 high fives a day!

 Lazy Lu
She's in 8th grade.
She is amazing with Jayne.
Lucy is ready for school, looking perfect, in 5 minutes every morning! 
Lucy adds SPICE to our family!

Alley is a great help to me!
I really can never repay the Lord for sending our family such a wonderful first child.

So Sweet

People are so nice to give such cute thoughtful things to Jayne.
She is 5 weeks now and just starting to smile.  She is a Doll!

 only spoiled babies get this kind of treatment...I mean a bath robe? come on!
 She is such a serious bear!  We took this picture this morning!
She is really starting to fill out.
 $1.99 to play dress up.  We found this swim suit, that she will never wear in the water, at goodwill and had to buy it!


 We had a lot of fun at Ben's family reunion again at Flathead Lake!  We didn't get to many pictures because I was preoccupied with Jayne.

Carmen Comes for a Visit!

 We were so excited to hear that Carmen was coming to visit Alley and Lucy!  These girls had a blast.
We went to the Lake!  Brady was hunting in the sand and found real treasure, 20 dollars!

They went to a dance wearing matching shirts and we got ice cream cones in the pouring rain! These girls are much closer now then ever! In fact everyone thought they looked so much alike it was funny! Thanks for coming Carmen!

Jayne Olive Miller

We are in love with Jayne!  So, maybe in this picture I wasn't so happy but it was seconds after she was born.

Everyone loved holding Jayne and dressing her up.  It was quite the production just changing her diaper. Everyone wanted to be involved!  Thank heavens Grandma Christensen was here to help with everything from meals to hauling kids around to visiting with me.  Michelle was such a good sister to come and help too.  She really bonded with Alley and Lucy!  Jayne loved playing with Aunt Michelle!

 I always forget the time and weight of babies, good thing Ben is on top of this, this time!
