14 Apr 2012

KK’s birthday party. The kids had a total blast making chef hats, decorating aprons, eating doughnuts, making their own pizzas, fruit sticks and even their very own sundaes! The kids were completely wiped out but we drug them to the commissary anyway where I spent almost $300!!!! They all slept on the way home! We took the long way home and drive by the tulip fields were they were completely packed and the traffic was just crazy. The kids all woke up just in time to get out and help with the groceries. Here are a few of my favorite pics from the day!

10 Jan Happy Birthday Abby

Ben’s school was 2 hours late and since I couldn’t get out the driveway in the Camaro, I rescheduled Sam and Ben’s dentist appts. Then when Ben did go to catch the bus it had already gone by so he just spent the day with me. I feel like I am coming down with a cold. Matt got home and we left shortly after to go to Sam’s award presentation. She got her award at the Oak Harbor School district meeting. Abby went with us, Then we headed to Wal-Mart to do some grocery shopping and so Abby could spend her $20 from Grandma Karen and her $20 Wal-Mart card from Nana! Abby decided on the movie Flushed away and got a Ladybug pillow pet :) Wanted to make sure we had groceries in case we get snowed in for a couple of days! Sam and I are gonna stay up and watch the movie Inception.

We woke up this morning to find out that Mount Vernon was getting covered in snow! Luckily throughout the day the roads were clear. Well, we went and exchanged Matt’s shirt, Abby and Ben’s jackets and I found a few other things at Freddie’s with Marylee. Sam went with Karen to exchange her sweatshirt at the mall and then we headed home around 415pm. We made it about an hour out of Oregon and it started snowing! Luckily it only lasted about 10 miles and turned in to rain. We made good time and made it home by 915 pm. Our street and the whole neighborhood was blanketed in snow!

So it was a crazy day at the Portland Miller’s! It was so much fun to see all the kids open their presents~and we ate more food than you can imagine! Hayden tried on every piece of clothing she opened….sooo cute….and everybody was sooo thankful for everything they got, it was GREAT!Abby and Peyton did not get a nap and BOY did they need it…they did go to bed with a fight, but were out in no time! And checking out the weather, looks like we are suppose to get snow Wed-Friday in Mount Vernon next week! Guess we will see!

Today was pretty chill. Nothing really going on here. Took forever to get Peyton to take a nap, but he finally lost it. Matt and Sam drove to Fry’s to check it out. Abby enjoyed playing with Olivia, playing Wii bowling with Grandpa and doing a puzzle with Grandma.

Boy did I do a lot today! I got up with Ben and made him breakfast, then I cleaned house {kitchen, laundry, made all the kids beds and packed everybody’s clothes}…then I went and got a pedicure and got my nails done….also stopped at Costco and Safeway to pick up pictures and get snacks for the trip. We FINALLY got on the road around 605 pm but then had to stop and get gas. I had to drive because Matt wasn’t feeling good. It rained until about an hour before we got to Portland! SUCKED! We made pretty good time and didn’t catch any traffic and got to Portland around 1025 pm.
