My friend, April posted about this on her blog, and it's a great deal...bloggers get free Christmas cards! You can sign up here..http://bit.ly/sfly2010 

I have used Shutterfly to make my Christmas photo cards once before and they looked wonderful!! I made a mistake last year by using another company to try to save money and it was a mistake. My cards, prints, and books from Shutterfly always look professional and turn out great!! This year I plan to make my cards through Shutterfly again. My favorite card is on this linkhttp://http://www.shutterfly.com/cards-stationery/christmas-cards it is the Sweet and Retro - the one that says It's the Most Wonderful Time of the Year. I absolutely love this one. My second favorite is on this linkhttp://http://www.shutterfly.com/cards-stationery/christmas-photo-cards I love the With Love Blue. And my third favorite is on this link http:// http:// http://www.shutterfly.com/cards-stationery/christmas-gift-tags These tags are so stinkin cute. What a great idea. Take a look and leave me a comment of your favorite!!


The view from here

Earlier, as I was sitting at the kitchen table..this is what I saw in the living room. Our sweet little boy, playing with his toys, who got so happy when he saw me looking at him.

I am beyond blessed. 


6 years as Mr. & Mrs.

This is us...6 years ago today.

We've officially been together 10 years!

So to celebrate..we spent the day together in Tulsa doing whatever we wanted. My mom offered to keep Miller for the day..and night! His first sleepover! We tried not to talk about things other than him..but somehow our conversations always ended up back to "I wonder if he's doing ok...I wonder if he'll sleep good tonight..." Not that I had any doubt that he would be completely fine with his Grammy, it was just weird for both of us being away from him for 24 hours!

The highlight of my trip (other than spending the day with my favorite man in the whole wide world) :) was going to The Vintage Pearl! I have been a blog reader for a long time and they finally opened a store in Tulsa, so I couldn't wait to go. Their store was so cute, just as I expected. I got a necklace that I had been wanting as my anniversary gift...(no shopping required for the hubby). I got an 'm' and an 'e'. Not to spell 'me', but for Eli & Miller..my two loves. :) I LOVE IT!!

We had lunch in Utica Square and walked around to some of the shops..until it started raining. I was also super excited to go in Anthropologie. Very cute stuff...very expensive stuff. I bought one thing..for $2.50...I'm a big spender, I know. The store itself is just way cool to look around in.

Then we went to the mall and did some shopping..mostly for Miller. Who knew. Don't think Eli didn't get to have any fun on this trip. We did make a stop at Bass Pro in Broken Arrow..where we bought some things for...Miller. :) Then, Charleston's for dinner and a trip to Academy. It was such a fun day!

We didn't get a decent pic of the two of us, so here is one of the three of us from today. I like 3 better than 2 anyways. :)


8 Months

I have never had to work so hard to get this little guy to smile. I'm going with this as his official 8 month picture...
because that face pretty much sums up our little photo shoot. He would not give up his smiles very easily..or at all. Usually his daddy is the one making him smile in these monthly pics, but he is at work so I had to take what I could get.
1. He was doing everything he could to avoid the camera.
2. His new thing he does with his tongue. love it.
3. The best smile I got..but I'll take it. :) 
4. Just a quick yell to let me know he was done. 

At 8 months:
Size 4 diapers, 9 month clothes (this shirt is 9 months and snug)

Size 3 and 4 shoes. Most 3's don't fit because his feet are too fat.

Eats 4 bottles a day, cereal with fruit, and veggies & fruit twice a day.

Likes being in his high chair and trying to drink out of his sippy cup. 

LOVES any fruit or veggies. I gave him part of a puff to try, but he gagged.

Still no teeth.

Still a great napper and sleeper.

Love to play on mama & daddy's bed.

Loves to be outside. He helps me check the mail everyday. He even holds onto the mail as we walk back in the house.

Can make his voice very loud and does it a lot..especially when we are in the car or a restaurant. :) 

Been doing this high-pitched voice thing lately.

Rolls everywhere, still no crawling.

Loves to drive around in his Jeep (walker). He can go anywhere in it. He gets his driving skills from his mama. :)

Started waving last week {11/03}. He has only waved at someone once..his Grammy and Uncle Ian. 

He still moves his legs like crazy when he's excited.

Rolls his ankles/feet in circles.


First Halloween

I'm a little late in blogging this, but I figured someone would want to see these photos.
Miller's first Halloween was a success. It was a busy weekend, but so fun! We visited his cousin Charlie (the pirate), took pictures with pumpkins at his Gamma & Gampa's house, got a new ball from his Grammy & Uncle Ian and went to our church's 1st Annual Trunk or Treat where he was a walrus. The cutest walrus I've ever seen, I might add. :) He thought it was funny when he was in his costume. Except in that bottom photo with his friend Landin..he was ready for a nap!
