The Millers joined us for the fun show. Everyone loved it except little Ella.

Nana and Ella went inside and watched from her bedroom window. We had such a sweet little conversation about celebrating America's Birthday and how fun it was to have so many aunts and uncles and grandparents there! Miss Ella is so wise for her 4 years! What a joy to share life with all these wonderful people. We were really missing Mack and Cheryl though:(.

Sunday was wonderful too. It was Preston's Blessing Day. I stole this picture from Chrissy's blog....I just love her pics.


Another picture from Marci's blog.

Blessing Brunch:

Southwestern Quiche
Basic Breakfast Potatoes
