The Miller Family

I mention my girlfriend JoJo here sometimes. (Isn’t that the coolest name?) She’s such a special friend, and I’ve learned a lot from her over the last few years. Things like:

– The most powerful thing we can do for each other (and our families) is pray.

– Homeschoolers really can turn out to be normal adults. ;)

– It doesn’t matter what everyone else is doing as long as I’m doing what God wants ME to do for MY family.

– Traditions are important.

– I need to learn to make homemade cinnamon rolls.

– God’s Word is always relevant. When we don’t have adequate words, He does.

And a lot more that I probably shouldn’t post on the ‘ole internet!

I love you, JoJo. And the other 4 Millers too!

I texted Anderson a picture of K in his classroom this morning, and he thought I was still there – an hour after I dropped him off.
No. But what’s wrong with that anyway?!?

Lauri Holt Greenhaw - Logan cried for 6 solid weeks! I told Dr. Joe that if he cried again…I could not do it anymore and that he would have to take off work to drop him at school. Eventually, I bribed him with a Winnie the Pooh couch and he never shed another tear. #goodmommy #badparenting #lookathimnow

Peggy Hyatt - NOT a thing wrong with that . I had to stay with you everyday for a while because you cried so bad every time I left you .So glad Kingston didn't cry :)

60 Reasons We Love Dad

happy birthday pops blog

 

Happy Birthday, Pops!
I asked the family (all of them!) to help me make this list of some of the reasons we’re thankful for you.
We’ll let you guess who said what!
We love you.

1. He lets me drive the tractor.

2. He always has good advice.

3. He plays soccer with us.

4. He’s not afraid to call Don out.

5. He makes us stuff.

6. He reacts calmly. (Remember when I glued my fingers together, and you calmly went to the hardware store for acetone? Or when I accidentally dyed my hair purple and you took me to the grocery store for another box of color? Or when I had that hit and run and called you from the gas station. Nevermind. Or when I got that tattoo and went to your office to show you? Okay. We’ll stop here.)

7. He’s our friend; not just our dad.

8. He sends us Bible verses everyday.

9. He’s the glue that holds this crazy crew together.

10. He likes fast cars!

11. He’s driven by the gospel.

12. He was OCD before it was a thing.

13. He’s our first phone call in a crisis. And he’s talked us all down off a ledge many times.

14. He’s my best friend.*

15. He’s selfless.

16. He puts his family before his work.

17. He’s down to earth and never sees himself as better than anyone else.

18. He loves Jesus!

19. His stuff is our stuff

20. He encourages me when I’m down.

21. He always takes him time to do a project for me… and it always turns out perfect.

22. He did my science projects.

23. He lets me do whatever I want!

24. He’s generous.

25. He’s my best friend.*

26. He passed down good genes.

27. He has a bunch of sayings. I roll my eyes; but I like them all.

28. He doesn’t talk too much.

29. He knows God’s word.

30. He likes to learn new stuff.

31. He’s a modern day John Wayne.

32. He’s a good listener.

33. He laughs without making any noise.

34. He doesn’t like cats.

35. He takes care of Mom.

36. He’s a planner.

37. He’s patient.

38. He’s loyal and supportive – no matter what!

39. He has a soft heart and isn’t afraid to cry.

40. He’s great in a crisis.

41. He taught us all to shoot.

42. He practices what he preaches.

43. He’s taught us to be “street smart” and some of it stuck.

44. When Mom drags him to the thrift store he finds good stuff for ME!

45. He talks to Jesus on our behalf. From praying for our salvation to some of our big life decisions; he’s relentless and dedicated to interceding for us.

46. He always says, “I’m proud of you.”

47. He’s honest.

48. He’s a good Grandpa.

49. He never asks for anything.

50. He keeps his word. Always.

51. He’s never disappointed me.

52. He was strict when we were young.

53. He buys enough supplies to last 15 years anytime we send him to the store.

54. He knows how to fix stuff.

55. He taught us that life isn’t about being happy, but being holy. And while we might not always understand God’s plan, it’s for his glory and our good.

56. He never pretends to be perfect.

57. He loves his job.

58. He’s respected in the community, and we’re proud to say he’s our Dad.

59. He taught us to live within our means.

60. He’s not afraid of change and knows that even though the Gospel never changes, our methods of sharing it have to.

*Mom and Don can fight it out over the best friend title. :)

Master Bedroom

Our house doesn’t really have a theme or “style” that continues throughout like a professionally decorated home does. I just go with what I like – old, quirky, funny… stuff that makes us smile. So it probably feels a little random. But there is one consistency. COLOR! I’m learning to keep all my walls more neutral, because everything else is so bright. Color makes me feel happy, so I love it! I redid our bedroom earlier this year and wanted to show you how it looks right now. Honestly, I add and change things in our home all the time (move things from one room to the next), but this is what our bedroom looks like this week. :)

bedroom7blogbedroom22blogbedroom2blogbedroom25blogbedroom4blogbedroom14blogbedroom27blogbedroom5blogbedroom20blogbedroom12blogbedroom28blogbedroom29blogbedroom13blog

Comforter – Anthropologie,
Pillows – IKEA, thrifted, and I made a few of them with fabric from Etsy.
Vintage Couch – It was my Grandma’s! I painted it and redid the trim.
Granny Squares on the walls – Etsy.
Dresser Knobs – Anthropologie and Hobby Lobby.
I made the pinwheels, the pom pom garland, and “dream catcher” thingy over the bed, the clock is thrifted, and the Polaroid print is from Etsy.
Curtains – Target.
Large Image over the bed was taken by Sarah Eddy of Sarahdipity.
The owl, globe, and Matryoshka doll candle on the dresser are from a little shop on St. George Street in St. Augustine. Can’t think of the name!
Afghans – Thrifted.
I made the art over my dresser from paint chips and a ruler.
The bench in the corner was a donation from my parents. :) I painted the legs.

The Skipper Family

I got to take pictures of the Skipper family while they were here on vacation from Kansas a few weeks ago! Working with people who are “on holiday” in Florida is one of my favorite things. They are already in that vacation/party mode that makes them super relaxed and easy to work with. And it’s fun to be part of their vacation memories! The Skippers were an absolute joy to hang out with… all EIGHT of them!
