Baby Ezmai!!!

August 27, 2009 - Baby Ezmai is finally here!!!!

I got a call at 3:00 this morning telling me that my little niece was on her way. I was so excited!!!

My sister has waited 4 long years to adopt a baby, and she's finally here! She flew out to Colorado this morning to be there when she was born.

Ezmai Sarah Culbertson was taken by emergency c-section early this morning and weighed in at 5lbs. 1 ounce, and is 19 inches long. During delivery she inhaled some amniotic fluid and has pneuomonia so she gets to spend 2 weeks in the NICU.

Little Tayeson is so glad to finally have a sibling!! He is so glad to be a big brother - he has become quite the mother hen, always looking out for his baby sister.

Congratulations Whit & Eric - we can't wait to meet her!!!

Tayeson holding his baby sister for the first time. So cute!!

Baby Ezmai getting her first gift - from her big brother of course!


September - Melissa and Shane wanted to go out to dinner (by themselves for once) so I offered to take the kids. We had all 3 until they were done with dinner, then they came by and grabbed Ledger and the other 2 stayed over for a sleepover!!!

We had soooo much fun!!!

We made homemade pizza for dinner, baked and decorated cupcakes, painted little glow-in-the-dark ceramic figures, and ended the night by watching the corpse bride.

We were all exhausted when bed time came at 11:30. The kids wanted to sleep with us so we all crawled into our little queen size bed. And needless to say, Uncle Mattie doensn't deal well with being over crowded so we ended up sleeping on the floor, and gave the kids our bed. :)

We love spending time with our little nieces and nephews and are definitely going to have to do this again some time!

Ledger LOVES his Uncle Mattie and always has a big smile on his face for him.


August 31, 2009 - Today was our 1 month anniversary, and because Matt had been working so many nights and leaving me at home by myself, he decided I needed something to keep me company. So, he got me Bella....a cute little 5 week old Tortiouse Shell Kitten, that I adore!!! She is our newest addition, and was followed closely by our 2 pygmy goats, Momma and Junior, but they're just rentals. We have to give them back this winter.

It's always exciting at Miller farm. LOL!!

Honeymoon In Yellowstone

August 1st - 4th, 2009 - Right after the wedding we took off for Pocatello to stay at the Black Swan Inn in the Tropical Jungle suite. It was awesome! There was a huge hot tub in the middle of the room with a waterfall, our bed had silk sheets and leopard fur on it, and the shower was built for about 8 people.

When we got to the hotel we ordered domino's pizza. Nothing had ever tasted so good. We were starving! And it was 1:00 in the morning, and they were the only restaurant open - and thank goodness for delivery - that way we didn't have to leave our room. HeHe!We were up bright and early the next morning and all excited for Yellowstone! (Matt hadn't been since he was very little, and was way excited.)

We arrived in Yellowstone at about noon, and decided we would head right to the bear and wolf exhibit. There was a ginormous grizzly in one pen that walked right up to the fence - and just plopped down to watch everyone that was watching him. It was funny - and way neat to see one so close. The wolves were super lazy and were all asleep.

We spent the next few days driving around in the park where, unfortunately, we didn't see any animals besides elk and a couple of buffalo. And no males, just the does, but a few fawns which was neat. We were really disappointed.

Matt did a lot of fishing while we were there. I spent a lot of time getting eaten by mosquitoes. That was a lot of fun.

We spent a lot of time walking around town and shopping, and eating huckleberry icecream, which is Matt's new favorite.

We stayed in a cute little cabin in town, and yes, we did spend a lot of time there.

A couple of days into the trip I started to not feel so well, I had a hard time sleeping, my back hurt badly, and a few other things. After a completely sleepless night Monday night before we went home, I'd had it, and decided to go to the clinic the next morning. So I was at their door at 8:00 when they opened, and found out that I had a roaring kidney infection. After taking some horse pills and getting a couple shots in my backside (that hurt bad!) I returned to the cabin to pack up and go home. I'd had it.

We did stop and go to Bear World on the way home. That was a lot of fun. We saw black bears, grizzly bears, baby bears, wolves, moose, elk, albino elk, buffalo, birds, and a whole petting zoo of animals. We stopped and had lunch and fed bread to the ducks, and food to the fish. Matt wanted to pull out his fishing pole, but I told him I didn't think that was a very good idea. LOL!
