  • homemade slime | crafting with kids

    Since we had “science experiment” still to check off on our Summer Fun List, I began looking for some super-quick and simple ideas to get that accomplished. I originally wanted to make oobleck with them. The idea of oobleck on it’s own didn’t sound too appealing (my kids aren’t really young enough to be in…

  • my beautiful birthday girl | emily, 9

    Its about that time again… time to kick The Miller Kids’ Birthday Season off! Emily starts us off in August and then we celebrate birthdays every 3 weeks taking us through the Fall. Em is 9 today. NINE! How and when did this happen? On one hand, I feel like she was a tiny little…

  • first holy communion & nanny

    Last weekend we celebrated my son’s First Holy Communion. It was a beautiful day …for the most part. The ceremony was great. Andrew was quite the handsome picture in his little pinstripe suit. At the start of the party though, my nearly 93 year old Grandmother fell and passed out. Thankfully, my FDNY first-responder husband…
