Lots of pics

My Christmas girls. I love dressing them in their Christmas clothes. 

Our kids are mostly toys to us

This is such a good representation of Jane's inner self. Serene and a little weird.
This is an awesome story. Amelia woke up and said, "I need to earn some money to buy things". So she decided to make a lemonade stand. (Yes, it's november) Joe was SO supportive. He made her that little stand, helped her with the koolaid, got her all situated, then sat back and watched with me. Amelia is NOT afraid of people. To any and all passerby-s , she's holler "I have lemonade per you! It's 9 dollars!!!" We let her set her own price :) Our obliging neighbors came and bought some at a reasonable rate and Amelia ended her 45 minute work day with $5.50. She even learned about tithing, but in all honesty, I was more excited for her to learn about capitalism. 

Mud mud everywhere. 


  1. What a sweet group! You seriously need to get some pictures of you! Way to go Mills!

  2. oh, and what did she spend her money on? "Instruments. I want Instruments, Mom." Off to walmart for some recorders and a toy xylophone.

  3. Awesome. Love the pretty dresses. Love your skirt/dress, Beth. I thought it was hilarious that she was charging 9 buckies for lemonade. Good thing she doesn't know how to count money yet. For all she knows everyone paid her 9 dollars, right?!

  4. PICTURES! Freddie just saw the last one and said, "Who are they!?" He couldn't believe it was his cousins, and I'm not sure if it was their mud disguise or how grown up they look that confused him. Your girls are getting too big! Lemonade stands!? And I love her sign. Lemons=money. You guys are great

  5. Oh man, I wish I could have bought some lemonade from her.
