There's nothing like Going Out On TOP!!!

Joey's football team won the Championship!!! It was, by far, the BEST game EVER!!! But I think we all knew it would be. This was their final year of youth football. Next year they will be playing Freshman ball. This team has been together since 4th grade, and Troy has been there with them coaching all along. So has our great friend Kent Bauman. The two of them make a great balance when it comes to coaching. The night was filled with mixed emotions. Excitement for the Championship Game, I had butterfly's all day! And Sorrow, because we knew this was the last game for these boys as a team. They couldn't have made the night any better! I do have to say.... SORRY Mom, I kind of blew work off..... I spent the day painting banners & signs for the game. I had a Good Luck banner hanging on the front of the house for Joey when he got home from school. And then two more for the game. I also made signs to pass out throught the crowd to cheer our team on. We have the GREATEST fans!!!
This picture was taken just before the game started.

This Joey's buddy Prentiss Miller. He played on the Hurricane opposing team. He is a very talented athlete!

These boys think they are pretty HOT STUFF!

Kent is holding Benny. This is a little brother of one of our players. This cute little family was at every practice, and they have the cutest kids. Troy fell in love with them, especially little Benny. He made him one of the coaches of the team. COACH BENNY! It was great, at practices Troy would have him yell GIVE ME A LAP!!! The boys loved it.

Joey smashed cake in Troys face after the game.

After all the trophy's had been handed out, Troy yells out.... Wait a minute, we forgot some one. Coach Benny, GET UP HERE!!! This little guy was beaming!

The Boys named all the coaches as the ROCKS of the game. After each game the MVP is awarded the ROCK, all the players lay a hand on them in the circle as they chant WHO ARE WE?

We want to give a BIG SHOUT OUT to all of our Family and Friends that came out and supported Joey for this last game!!! It meant the world to him to have you ALL there! And also, Thank You to everyone that came to every other game over the years. It made it extra special!

Alexis & Kyron are getting married!

We will soon be welcoming, with open arms, a new son in-law into our family. Alexis and Kyron are getting married on December 6th. We are very excited for this little family to begin a new chapter of their life. We wish them all the love and happiness that we ourselves have experienced together over the years. There is nothing more rewarding for you, than to be able to share every moment of your child's life together as a Whole Family!
I was lucky enough to be able to take their pictures, and make their wedding announcements. Thank you for letting me do this for you, I loved every minute of it. (Its my passion!) We drove up to Provo Canyon the first part of October and met them for the pictures. It is always so good to see them, I have always hated the fact that they live so far away. Anyway, as always, Lex was stunning. She is so beautiful, and the camera just soaks it up. I can't think of a picture I have ever taken or seen of her that hasen't been great. And now that she is grown they just turn out breath taking! I feel so blessed to have been able to have such a wonderful and loving step-daughter. Although, STEP means nothing to me, I have loved you like my very own from the day I saw you Lex. I can hardly believe it has been over 16 years!! Thank you, for being so excepting. And also, for being such a GREAT Big Sister to Joey & Tana. They love and admire you so much.
I just love this innocent little face! Carter is such a cute boy!
Even though he is over a year old, Troy and I still kind of trying to
come to terms with the fact that we are Grandpartents.
And kind of laugh at the fact that Tate Lynn was born an instant Aunt.

Doesn't he have just the cutest little crooked smile?

I finally did it!

Well, here you go! This is for all of you that have told me to set up a blog for the past... who knows how long. I just hope I can keep it updated regularly like the rest of you. I figured this would be the best time to set this up, since I now only have 5 more days until our new little bundle of joy arrives. That's right, for all of you who are unaware, the Miller family is having a baby! I know... ten years later, what are we thinking? Who knows? But we are all so excited we can hardly stand it. We all count the days down constantly. I thought this would be a great way to share our joy in the days, and years to come.
