De-Ja-Vu

It has been almost a year exactly since I posted this picture. Ella made this mess with stickers one night while I was trying to let her entertain herself to give me a few minutes to fix dinner...


You would have thought after a year of having two very active children I would have learned my lesson, but no. We have been stuck at home with the flu for a week now. The kids are definitely going crazy, but not fever free so we cannot leave. I was just trying to do something different so I pulled out the stickers again. I don't know how it happened so quickly but somehow Miller dumped out all the stickers (same box, no matter how many times we use those stickers they just will not go away. it is like they multiply over night) and spread them all over the floor. This time they were so spread out that I could not get a good picture to really capture how great a job Miller did of creating a mess!

We Survived the Summer

At some points, I did not know that it would happen. But, we survived through the rough part of the pregnancy (now I feel great). I think the only reason we made it is because we traveled a lot and I had lots of help! So, be warned, lots of pictures follow. Here is a glimpse of our summer.


Lots of trips to the lake:
I had just told Ella we were going to the lake and need to pack and when I walked in Miller's room she was packed and ready to go.

Sea-Do rides...

Lake Trip to Tennessee:
Granna's Birthday

Miller upset because he has to wait to have cake

Caught lots of BIG fish with Uncle Rich and Parker. A couple of times we thought Miller was going to jump in after the fish.

Ella got her first scooter (look how grown up she looks!)


Digging for shells

Miller working very seriously on his Blackberry like Daddy and Uncle Rich



Miller had his first serious injury. He fell off a bench and busted his head open. So instead of stitches, Daddy super glued it together. Now Daddy and Miller have matching scars.

Ate lots of marshmallows!

Trip to the Beach:

Ella learned to swim (all those swim lessons finally paid off)



Ella's First Day of School:


Ella's first Alabama Football game with Daddy

Miller's first pair of cowboy boots. Too bad we have to take them back. Miller's feet are so big that the boots are too tall. They go all the way up to the crook of his knees and he cannot walk. So, I am still on the look out for that perfect pair.
