So the day after we got home from the hospital, Arlan's sister Cathy went into labor and thus the trio of 3 cousins is now complete. Starting back in late Aug./early Sept. with little Will Miller, there are now 3 little babies in the Miller family. Elijah, Arlan's 5 year old nephew, lovingly calls them "Adam's baby" (aka Will), Arlan's baby (aka Haven), and Cathy's baby (aka Charlee)...here are the 3 darlings during their first meeting last Friday noon at Orlan & Carol's...it is quite humorous as it does seem like you are in the midst of a hospital nursery, but nope-you are just at a Miller gathering! Welcome Charlee Ann...you are quite the precious little bundle & you have terrific parents! Haven looks forward to playing with both her cousins!

The question inevitably comes up..."Wow-Haven came early! Were you ready? What were you doing before she came?" (our actual due date was Nov. 12th with Haven arriving on Nov. 1st) ...well, we actually had hosted about 40 ISU students at our house for a Fall Party-pumpkin carving, apple bobbing, singing...it was great fun! Who knew a mere 3.5 hours after the last person left, my water would break & life as we know it would be drastically changed-for the good mind you, but changed nonetheless! Enjoy some pictures...
...or as in the Richard Simmons ladies from "Sweatin to the Oldies"
With 40 people in our small condo, we made use of every inch of our place, including the garage where the apple bobbing took place.

but the real winner of apple bobbing was actually Aaron (flannel shirt) who also coincidentally walked into our front door :) Aaron snagged 9 apples in 30 seconds!
the ISU kids surprised us by giving little Haven a set of her crib sheets, a darling dress outfit, and the book "Don't Let the Pigeon Drive the Bus"...which if you've not read it, go buy it...it's pretty hilarious...since I'm a teacher, they then made me read it :)
