We have Skyped two times recently (well kind of. . . ) Papa tried to read us Skeleton Hiccups but the technology people blocked me so he had to read it over the phone. . .

My mom then read us Thanks for Thanksgiving and we told her what we were thankful for and Skype kind of worked (we could see her but she could not see us. . .) Hopefully in December it will work great because we have something super fun planned. . . Let me know if you want to be a part of our Skype experience!

Honestly, I have been very overwhelmed lately. With conferences coming, and basketball in full swing, I feel like I get nothing done at school and I have a very, very, very BIG, busy, LOUD, and even naughty group of kids. I did get a little break from my overwhelming feeling today when I was reading something a little girl had written to me she said
"In my book, Anastasia is going to a career fair to choose a career she wants to have someday. If I could choose a career I would choose a daycare lady. What career would you choose Mrs. Miller?"
Well, I am thinking now that I don't quite know what career I would choose. . . haha just kidding, I LOVE my job and I am SOOOOOOOOOOO incredibly blessed and I would never do anything else, even if it is overwhelming. . .

That Time of Year

It is that time of year where I offer to make Christmas cards for others. I really, truly enjoy it and all you have to do is send me some photos and let me know your thoughts. I will even print them for you this year if you so desire. I charge a flat rate of $10.00 and then if I print them for you I will have you pay me for that too. Email me at, comment, or call me or facebook me and let me know if you want one. Here are some that I did last year :)
