On christmas morning we told the kids they couldn't go out to see santas goodies until 8am, so they really did stay in their room together and didn't come out till we went in at 8. At that point Natalie, who is completely addicted to TV and shows, she said she wanted to finish her show before she went out to see the goods haha. The kids were so excited for their Santa gifts and their stockings. Courtney loved checking out the eaten cookies and carrots and couldn't believe the milk was all gone! I love the christmas spirit in children. They are so sweet and full of belief.

All of the traditional miller christmas things were done this year again! It isn't christmas without lots of food, baking, christmas nativity, bells, christmas crackers, and christmas Jammie's. It was so fun to have john and sandy here to celebrate with us. The kids did wonderful at the nativity and it was one of my favorites!

Merry christmas from the great white north! We have been here not even a week and we are having so much fun!! My aunt sandy and uncle john are here as well with their oldest jake, who I still remember as a wee lad! Boots is harassing him daily and hourly but we are having a lot of fun. Christmas Sunday was beautiful and the kids all looked great!
The next night was the Nutcracker ballet. We took all 3 kids and they did really well! It was fun and a great show. Those ballerinas wear some tight tights!! They are so talented though, I wish I could do that!

Obviously is singing loud for all to hear. On Friday Courtney had her Christmas program at school. She goes to a Catholic school and the program was very cute and very religious. The song they sang was about Jesus's birthday and their gift to him is them. It was very cute and Courtney did a fabulous job. I couldn't believe how many parents and grandparents were there to watch these little preschoolers thing though it was worse than kindergarten at the elementary school.

Poppy turned a month old today! I can't believe how time has flown by so fast already.
She is slowly gaining weight after I have decided to pump every feeding and bottlefeed her. She was just taking so long to nurse I have to do something about it. So I feel happy with her progress and I know she is getting longer because her sleepers are starting to come off of her shoulders.
The baby shower that I did turned out really cute. It is so exciting to celebrate a little baby that is so wanted from a sweet couple like Heather and Tyson. The theme was baby it's cold outside and we did a hot chocolate bar. There were lots of different toppings and it was delicious.
