I just realized today that I haven't made a post in awhile! Not too much going on here at the Miles household, we're settling back into life after the holiday madness ;D. Clayton has 2 loose teeth, Ethan has lost 4 teeth in the span of about a week and a half (I don't think he's going to be able to chew soon!) and Micah is convinced hes got a whole headful of loose teeth! He so badly wants to be a "big guy". Clay is doing awesome in basketball, he LOVES it. Today he got the Sportmanship Star because a little boy on the other team knocked him down so hard it knocked his shoe right off, and Clay got right up and kept on playing! He and Ethan are signed up for spring soccer, and Micah is going to play T-ball. So, it will be interesting having all 3 in sports this season...Josh and I will see each other coming and going, I suppose! So, thats it for now, I'll post some new pics soon. Love you all much! ;D

Clayton Tyler lost his very first tooth last Friday! How exciting!!
He was so nervous to pull it, but it was a whole family affiar and he did great! It finally came out with floss and a good yank from Daddy. Ethan was holding his hand while I was holding him and Micah was saying "I'm not watching, I'm not watching!!" pretty comical ;). That night before bed we asked him how much he thought he was going to get from the tooth fairy and he said $20!! Holy cow! He was kinda dissapointed with what he got ;).
Then Saturday he had his very first basketball game!! Go Cougars!
He did so great!! He scored the very first goal of the game and he was stoaked!! It was so neat, they called all the dudes out from a "locker room" area, and they ran through the cheerleaders to the floor. Pretty fun! At every time out and while he was on the bench, Clay could be seen checking out the cheerleaders on the sidelines..often with his mouth hanging wide open! It was hysterical! The coaches do an awesome job with the kids, they are all on the floor with them, so at this age, its really all about teaching the basics of the game, and having fun. So great! We're looking forward to a really fun season...you're welcome to come check him out anytime ;)

Last weekend we had Christmas with mom here in Tulsa with all my siblings. We had great fun, and the last 1/2 of our time, it was 70 degrees!! So great! So we all got to play outside. We had a ball playing Guitar Hero, American Idol (I am the champ, thank you very much!) and other fun games. We also played a new game that required lots of teeth and yelling...tons of fun! Wrap up a gift with lots and lots of tape and then make people put on oven mitts to open it, etc...it was too much fun ;) A great way to end our Christmas celebrations!

The Sunday before we left KC was my Poppos 82nd birthday. The four of us kids along with Dad went out to visit him in Topeka, where Geri had a cake waiting. We had lots of laughs, and a few tears, but it was so great for all of us to be there together. Such a great man....Happy Birthday Poppo.

It had snowed quite a bit in KC, so we got to go sledding!!! My kiddos had not seen snow yet this year, so they were thrilled to get out and play. Dad has a great hill back behind his house that is perfect for sledding, and Landon and Jer brought over some sleds so we had lots of chances to go. Tons 'o fun ;D
After Kansas, we headed to Missouri to celebrate with my sibs at my parents house in Kansas City. The boys got a kick out of making characters for everyone on the Wii, and watching Nana and Papa T play (Clay even offered Nana pointers!!). We had a ball playing and eating, talking and just hanging out.
The day after Christmas we headed to Kansas to spend some time with Joshuas aunts, uncles and cousins on his dads side of the family. His cousin Jack was there with his wife Lisa and their 3 boys, and we hadn't seen them in a long, long time! So that was really fun. While we were there we celebrated Uncle Jack and Aunt Jans 40th wedding anniversary. Lots of fun times! 9 kiddos and lots 'o adults, no lack of entertainment ;)
This Christmas Day we got to be in Tulsa at our house for Christmas!! :D Joshuas parents, sister and Grandma Alpers joined us. We had a great time! The boys opened all their gifts, and then we got to just play all day long. I think the big hit of the day was the Wii Joshua and I bought. We even had Grandma playing it! So much fun. We had a very blessed day, and hope you all did too...
