Miller Party of Five Does.....SLEDDING!

The gang...ready to do some sledding!

We weren't sure what she was going to do but she was FEARLESS.  That's my girl.
Waiting for another turn while sister went with daddy.

Have you guys seen Tommy Boy...."fat guy in a little coat."  That is all I have to say.  OK so maybe just  a bit more like this..."fat guy in a big coat and five other layers of clothing stuffed into a carseat that is too small for him." 

Not a big fan of waiting her turn.  This is the FRONT VIEW of her screaming everytime Easton and daddy went down the hill without her.  It went a little something like this, "Daddy!  Brudder!! (aka brother) NOOOOOOO!!!!   Don't leave me!!!  COME BACK.  COME BACK."  (In a complete bossy and sassy tone.  Don't know where she gets it from.) 

This is the back view.  Notice the yelling with authority stance....hands on hips.  Definitely don't know where she gets that from either.  Not at all. 
We finally let him out of his cage.

Seirously....that is just stinkin' cute.

That is one happy boy.  At least for a few minutes.  Before he got tired of carrying around 10 pounds of extra weight because we had him so bundled up in layers of clothes.  He crawled around laughing and playing then literally just collapsed and stuck his head in the snow.  Poory Guy.

We had a great time.  Don't think we will be doing it tomorrow though.  The total amount of time that it takes to put on 5 layers of clothes per kid, coats, gloves, two pairs of sock per each kid, and hats then load the car while the kids are sweating, yelling they are hot, and trying to rip of their clothes is twice the amount of time you actually spend sledding.  What does that mean?  It was fun.  I am glad we did it.  However, I am glad I live in Oklahoma and now I am ready for the snow to GO AWAY.  Oh, and I am ready for Spring and Summer.  Swimming is alot easier than Sledding.  It requires alot less clothing.


  1. Awesome pics! I love them! We didn't take our crew out to sled. I just didn't want to deal with it. But your pics are somewhat making me regret that decision. So fun!

  2. Brings back memories of getting you & your sisters all bundled up and out the door to play in the snow! Love it!!

  3. I love the sledding pictures! Great job!

  4. Great pics! Do you know that Owen still hasn't played in the snow! He's not interested in getting cold. Just like his mommy! I love that you're brave enough to go through all the work that it takes for a few moments of pure joy. That's what makes you a great mom to 3 very happy kiddos!
