Grandma came to visit and we took her to the swap meet. She decided she was tired of her own hairdo and wanted to do something different. These are the two final choices. You pick which one she should wear.


Or #2


As you have probably noticed we love to get pedicures. Anytime one of the girls comes into town we try and go get one. Emily was in town so Emily, Kris, Tara, Lorelai, Janet, and Lindsay went this time. We had a great time but as usual we missed our Ohio girls and Jackie.

Grandma Dixon sharing her water with Lorelai

Grandma Miller was sharing her water but Lorelai figured out it was real fun to kick water on the nail tech so she had to be banned from the water.

Pure relaxation on Mommy's lap.

Aunt Tara made sure Lorelai was included in getting her toenails done.

Since it was Halloween most of us decided to be festive and get orange polish with a black spider and spider web.

It was a lot of fun and will continue to be a definite tradition with the Miller girls.


Josh went with some friends to San Francisco a couple of weeks ago. Here are some of the highlights of the trip. Morgans wife Melissa was running in a marathon.

This is at Pier 39. Seems to be the hotspot for seals.

A Cell at Alcatraz.

Light house at Alcatraz. Josh is standing in the courtyard where the guards children used to play.

View of San Francisco from Alcatraz. He is also standing next to a Century Plant.

This man is apparently confused on the dress and the direction on which to run.

This is the top of Lombard Street. It has to zig zag back and forth because it is so steep.

Josh, Morgan, and Melissa

Josh and Morgan took a tour on Segways. They have a GPS system on them that directs them around the city.

I found these pictures on Josh's camera and thought they were really cute. Brooklyn loves her Uncle Josh. She loves to say his name also. It is one of the few things she says really clear.

Well today we had a special surprise. Addison Grace Miller decided to make her debut six weeks early. She weighed 5 pounds 4 ounces and was 18 inches. The doctors fully expected to whisk her off to the NICU as soon as she was born but she was perfect and doing wonderful. She is very tiny but her lungs are great and all the parts are there. We are so grateful for this new little addition to our family. Jackie was doing great and looked great as you can see. Welcome little Addison!!!!!

Today would have been Jamie's 18th birthday. I can't believe how time flys. I normally don't do much on this date except go to the cemetary but I decided this was a big one so I placed some pictures depicted her great short life. She was a great joy and blessing in all who knew her. Happy Birthday Jamie. Our lamp is lit till we hold you in our arms again.

First Christmas




Matt was a little boy that was born two days before Jamie and lived across the street. They were inseperable from about time they learned how to walk.
