Christmas Greetings

Christmas Greetings to you and your family from our Crazy Mountain Miller Crew.

Our Christmas Letter 2016:

What a crazy start to the year we had this year as Chris insisted on driving me to the hospital in the wee hours of January 1st, New Years Day morning.  It’s a good thing he did so, because our twins were born a few short hours later – Howard at 8:41am, and Caroline at 8:45am.  They were the first babies born in our county in 2016, and were even featured in the local newspaper.
After that very eventful start to the year, we have pretty much been in a crazy place ever since then.  When I think back on this year, I’m surprised at how much of it I don’t remember given that I’m pretty sure I’ve been awake for most of it.
Our rambunctious Tracey Ann is almost three and loves being a big sister.  She keeps Howard and Caroline in check and is very quick to inform Mama of any mischief “Howlard” and “Airoline” are doing.  She is such a little chatterbox and likes to pretend she is a doctor or a cook.  She has been attending a Montessori toddler program a few mornings a week for almost a year and is thriving.
Our little Caroline Christine is such a sweetheart.  She is very social and loves new people.  She adores her brother and sister, and our animals, Lexie and Lloyd.  She has so much fun keeping up with Howard and Caroline, and can walk around pushing toys.  She also loves to laugh.
As our only boy, Howard James, has his hands full with his two sisters.  He makes it his goal to try to keep up with Tracey, try to look out for Caroline, and keep a skeptical eye on any new person in our midst.  He climbs on everything possible, and loves to explore -- cupboards, drawers, boxes, rooms and more.
We wish you, our dear friends a very Merry Christmas a joyful holiday season.  Truly, this is such a special and miraculous time of year.  Christmas joy and traditions have been so much fun the past few years with our daughter, Tracey, and this year, the laughter and smiles and chaos is multiplied with eleven-month-olds, Howard and Caroline joining in the fun.
We have been so blessed this year to watch our three healthy children grow and learn together and become happy close siblings.  As we thank God for our beautiful children, we are so very thankful that God sent His own son to earth as a baby to be our savior through His death on the cross.
