What's Goin' On...

Today, September 28 is Amelia LaRee's 3rd Birthday. It was so fun to be back home and have our family here to celebrate with us.
Happy Birthday Millie,
We LOVE You!


When Mill woke up we opened presents with her Nana. She got her a fisher price MP3 player. She will LOVE it! She always asks to listen to her music. I can't wait to get it loaded up. Brady and I got her the Vtech Camera. She likes it, but I think it will be more fun in a few months when she understands how to use it a little better. Then we went to church and she got to make a birthday crown in nursery. Next we headed to my parents for homemade tacos, cake, and ice cream. My cute mom made her a Cinderella cake. Millie LOVES her princesses. My parents got Millie her first trike. It's a pink RadioFlyer. It was so cute! It's going to take a little practice, but I know she is going to ride all the time. My sister and her fam got her a water color set and some paints and silly Lilly, re gifted a Barbie she didn't want and a ball Millie had left at their house. Cyndell made her a really cool jewelry hanger, she has already put her hair bows on it! Mill couldn't have been more thrilled with everything. When we got back to the Flamm's to go to bed her aunt Carly gave Millie a new blankie. Hers is nearly a rag. I was a little nervous she wasn't going to accept a new blanket, but she really liked it and took it to bed with her. Thank you so much to you all for the wonderful gifts and all the love (thanks to Bryan and Kim for the fun gift, she has been having a great time painting the last couple days)! Millie is so lucky to have so many people around her that love her so much.



Now, what else have we been up too?

long boarding

playing soccer (sort of)
helping my sis lay their grass

and Partying with some old friends. (pictures to come later, I forgot the camera). Our sweet friends Jeremy and Amanda Reitz threw us a Welcome Home party with all Brady's high school buds. It was great to see everyone and to catch up!
Thanks again to the Reitz Fam!

SAD. I just realized I cut Millie's head off in the trike picture. You'll just have to beleive me that she had a HUGE grin on her face.

I just added Cyndell's hanger! I can't believe I forgot it. She loves it and it's hanging in her room.
Thanks Cyndell!

I haven't checked your blog forever and didn't realize you've been back for so long already, AND that I was in town when you were back and I missed trying to visit you guys! One of these days... I'm glad you had a nice homecoming party. Happy 3rd Birthday to Millie!
