This year we celebrated Christmas a little early. We opened our gifts on Christmas Eve morning, so that we could head down to Jake's parents to celebrate with the rest of the Miller family.

Hayden with his new favorite toy...a drill from Great Grandma Shirley and Gr. Grandpa Fred

Motorcycle man.....Hayden loves his four wheeler, but doesn't understand how to steer, so he just drives around the house crashing into things and cracking up!

Hayden and Derek

Attack of the babies!

Sledding on the creek...Hayden had a ball walking around in his cowboy boots. He kept falling down and laughing his head off.

Uncle Kirk teaching Hayden how to play video games.

It wouldn't be Christmas without Texas Hold 'em.

Christmas was a lot of fun this year. We also went to Massanutten indoor waterpark, but I didn't get any pictures of that. We had a wonderful year in 2010 and we are looking forward to an even better year in 2011!

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

O Christmas Tree

Last Friday we went to the official lighting of the town Christmas tree. It was a VERY cold, but we had a lot of fun.

Poolesville Town Christmas Tree

There was a guy there carving ice sculptures with a chain saw!

We decided to introduce Hayden to Santa just to see his reaction. He would not let go of Bailee, so she went up with him. Hayden took one look at Santa and freaked out. It was hilarious!

Saturday morning we went to a local tree farm to pick out our Christmas tree. This was a lot more fun than picking it out in a parking lot!

Hayden was climbing all over Jake, trying to help with the tree.

The boys feeding the tree.

The final product. Note the placement of the ornaments? They are just out of Hayden's reach. We had to put the tree on a box to raise it up high enough that he couldn't reach it. Not the most glamorous tree, but at least the ornaments are safe!

Happy 13th Birthday Bailee!!

Bailee turned 13 on Thanksgiving. I cannot believe we have a teenager now. Here are a few pictures from her birthday celebration.

The traditional professionally decorated cake :)

Straight A's

Bailee got straight A's for the first quarter! Her school had a special ceremony to celebrate the kids that made the honor roll and made special notice of the ones that did it with a 4.0. They did this on the Wednesday before Thanksgiving.

We are so proud of Bailee. It is no small feat to get straight A's. She has four advanced classes and usually has 2-3 hours of homework each night. She definitely earned her 4.0.

Great Job Bailee!! Keep up the good work!
