So I have returned to the world of blogging. After a very nice vacation (yeah right) it is good to be back. We have had family birthday and a crazy busy yet fun super saturday which have been occupying my time. It is nice to return to some sort of normalacy. I am back to my projects. We built shelves in the garage, I tore down the crib (no babies in the near future) and I converted that 3rd room into my craft room! I am in heaven! It has always been my dream to have a craft room. I walk by and just stand in the doorway to be in awe that I really have one. Miley even pinched me one day. Maybe now I will complete my box of incompleted craft projects. Then again maybe not. There always seems to be something going on. We love our crazy life:)!!!!!
My Miley girl is 4 years old. I cannot believe it! She has grown up so much in just the last little while. She is such a blessing in our home. She is our nurturer and our lover. She has her fiesty times but my favorite is when she says, "can I nuggle with you"! It is fun to watch her in school and in church and to see the things she is learning and discovering everyday! She is a wonderful big sister to Addison. It is fun to watch Miley teach Addie the things that she is learning or to hear her tell Addie the rules of the house. She is our little mother. I don't quite know where she got that from. We are so blessed with a loving family that is so supportive. All of the family came to celebrate the birthday and an early Thanksgiving (we are not able to be together this year). We truly enjoy our time as a family and it is fun to see how we grow and how things change. My dad has leukemia (CLL - chronic lymphocytic leukemia to be exact) and though he is doing extremely well I think it makes us all a little more appreciative of the time we do have together. We truly are a blessed family! We had a fun birthday party for Miley. She wanted Tinkerbell but she also wanted boys at the party so we did a Tinkerbell/captain hook party. We made pirate hats and fairy wands. We made candy treasure chest neckalces. We played follow the leader and we ate cake and opened presents. Miley has many great friends in the area and had a really great time!
We took a trip to EZ Orchards with Miley's preschool. We took a hayride, picked an apple, and a pumpkin. Then we enjoyed apple cider and donuts! We had a fun day and the girls especially enjoyed the hayride.
