Merry Christmas from the Miller Home!

Several happy updates in 2016 for the Miller family include a wedding & a new grandchild!

Big news coming!! Grand baby No. 5 is due around Christmas. Tina & Alex are expecting their first, Rory Michael, on December 27th, (Marti's birthday). How's that for a Christmas & birthday present? They are all doing fine. Tina continues her 1st grade teaching duties at Knob Noster and is head coach for the University of Central Missouri "Mule Kickers" dance team. Alex has a new job & position for the same university as an admissions counselor in the Kansas City area. They live in Warrensburg, Missouri.

Jessi & Aaron (Anderson) were married September 17th and are living in Columbia, Missouri. Both are running a new business that Aaron started this year, and business is doing well. They had a big open house this fall. Jessi is also working in home health care.

Amanda & Kelly still reside in Missouri Valley, Iowa. Amanda is home schooling their four (4) great kids Gracie (9), Rocky (7), Dominic (4), and Joanna (1). Kelly is part owner & manager at Longview Nursing Home in Missouri Valley.

Shane and friend Emily both live in Warrensburg. Shane earned his Masters degree this year and is teaching high school math at Warrensburg High. Emily is also working on her Masters and is teaching 4th grade at an elementary school in Warrensburg.

Additional activities included visits to Iowa for Joanna's first birthday, the county fair (Rocky & Gracie did great work on their projects), and a Halloween weekend (Amanda & Kelly were able to get a day to themselves) - Dominic was a great Super Man! Then, there were the extended family gatherings for a McCormick cousins' reunion in Iowa, a family wedding in Minnesota, trips to Warrensburg to see Tina & Alex and Shane & Emily, as well as several trips to Columbia MO to see Jessi & Aaron (a lot of wedding planning). We managed some brief visits to good friends Paul & Sheila.

We are grateful to be blessed with great family, friends, & associates and remember those who have gone too soon. Sadly, we lost Mike's older brother, Larry, earlier this year and two very dear friends, Mike Bonderer & Mike Feeney. We continue to be busy with the auctions; and although the crops were great this year, the prices are not!!

We hope this finds you well and wish you all a very Merry Christmas and Happy & Blessed New Year.
