Who stole our dog?

Who does that? I mean it is one thing to take some food if you are hungry, or something that you need, or even an inanimate object. But c'mon, someone's dog? I heard our gate open last night and I thought it was my grandparents stopping by, but then there was no knock. I didn't think much of it until we went to get some tacos and the gate was open and Maggie was gone. In the past, if the gate was open, Maggie would sit on the porch. OK, even if she did get out, it has been 24 hours and no one has called and said they found her. I was so angry yesterday but the scripture in Matt 5:44 played over and over in my mind (go look it up). I am going to imagine that she is in a good home full of kids who will play with her and take care of her. For now, it is my only comfort. I only hope the bitterness will subside.

Tristan and Nathan's Birthday Party

We had so much fun at the birthday party today. I can't believe how the boys are growing up so fast! We ate pizza, had a 3-legged race, a frisbee toss, pinata, cake, and watched the boys open gifts. Here are a few of the pictures from today. Thank you Amy and Allison for all your hard work. It was super fun. Archer said 'Thank you for parties' in his prayers tonight. He thoroughly enjoyed himself.

Happy Thanksgiving

We had a very full day and very full bellies by the time we finally made it home. We went to Grandma's and ate turkey with all the 'fixings'. It was so great to see everyone, although I couldn't help but miss Jon and Cameron. Then we went to Papa Calder's and it was a full house! Lots of kids, family, food, and a jumphouse. What more could we ask for? Oh yeah, Harvest Day Pie. Yummy. Thanks for everyone's hard work, time, and effort, it was appreciated, especially by my stomach.

Thanksgiving Korean Style

Here are some pictures Jon sent me from Korea with his e-mail attatched at the bottom.

Here are my Thanksgiving pics. We had so much fun. It was the best thanksgiving ever. And my thanksgiving dinner was so awesome. I stuffed myself just like do every year. I took the pics of the leaves from a taxi and they turned out pretty good considering it was only a 5 minute ride. Did I already send you these pics sorry if I did. I'm sending it to a bunch of people. So what did you do I mean what are you doing right now. That's too weird its already the next day and you are probably eating right now. your bro, Jon

Elder Miller

I am sorry these aren't in order, I was too lazy to organize them.

Last week my family and I flew to Utah to drop off my brother Cameron to the MTC. He will be there until January 30th before heading off to Taiwan (there is more info in a previous post). Dropping him off and saying goodbye was one of the hardest things I have ever done, but I am so glad that I was able to be there. The Spirit is so amazingly strong as thousands of missionaries are being 'schooled' in sharing the Gospel. Over 600 missionaries were processed that day and as we sang "Called To Serve" I couldn't help but think of my son and how I much I hope, wish, and pray that he will one day go to the MTC as well. OK, enough already, I am getting teary-eyed! Yes, it looks like I am smuggling a small person in my coat (well in a way, I guess I am). Good editing skills on the scar Mom.

"I'm A Skeltalin!"

Because you can never use too many knives when spreading frosting...

Had a good time this Halloween. As you can see we made cookies, carved jack-'o-lanterns, and got lots of candy. For some reason I didn't get the memo that no one wears their costume to preschool, so my kid was the only one dressed up. Whatever.
