Happy Birthday Bekah!!!!!!!!!!!!

Happy Birthday Bekah-Boo! I had to post this since I knew you would be reading my blog! You are such a special friend! I have greatly enjoyed spending each day in the office with you! Thank you for the wonderful contributions you make in the lives of our elderly residents. You are ONE of a kind! My heart will be sad when you leave to start this new exciting chapter in your life. I KNOW you are destined for great things!

Thanksgiving Point

One of our favorite Spring activities is to take the kids to visit the animals at Farm Country. We all had a great time and Abby even rode her first pony!

How to Diaper A Baby When You Are A Baby

Abby is demonstrating true desire to be a little mother. The other night, she got her baby and went to get her own diapers and wiped to try and figure out how to change it on her own. We just sat and watched her...this is toooo cute!

Mr. Green Eyes

Ethan has the prettiest green eyes (my eyes are green too) and it makes me happy to see a little piece of me in those beautiful but mischievous eyes!

Ogden's Treehouse Museum and Sonora Grill Grand Opening!

We recently spent the weekend in Ogden for the grand opening of the Sonora Grill thanks to my good friend Rebecca who got us the VIP treatment. It was a fabulous upscale Mexican resturaunt in downtown Ogden. I wish I had taken more pictures! We also went to the Treehouse Museum in downtown Ogden and WOW it was really great!

Silly Billys

Here are our crazy kids acting silly on a Saturday night at home. Isaac had better be careful, I gave myself a giant face hickey when I was about ten by sucking the air out of my cup and attaching it to my face! HA!


I have dreamed of this little girl and her piggytails all of my life. Thank goodness they are finally here!

9 Years Ago....this weekend!

Just a little reflecting on where Justin and I were 9 years ago this weekend! I flew to Utah to see Justin after nearly 5 years! It was such a great trip and some of the best memories of my life! We talked every night for about 3 weeks on the phone and decided that if we were attracted to one another (because we had talked about everything else), it was a done deal. I remember sitting in the car after my first 24 hours in Utah thinking, "I SO want to marry this guy, he's going to think I am crazy!" Lucky for me, he was thinking the same thing! Well, the rest is history. Marrying Mr. Hill has been by far the best decision I have ever or will evver make! I love you Jus and am grateful for the past 17 years if friendship.

Another GREAT Grandmother

Okay, so I couldn't post something about Grandma Gean without mentioning how great my mother is. Even though she lives thousands of miles away, she still seems to stay connected with our kids. They love talking to her on the phone and making pictures to send to her. She single-handedly gave me the most wonderful childhood memories and created unforgetable traditions that I now carry in my own family. I miss her so much and wish that we lived closer. I love you mom and am grateful for you prescence in my life and the lives of my family!

Grandmothers are GREAT!

Look at this awesome lady! This is Justin's sweet mom and my wonderful mother in law Gean! We were lucky enough to have her as a guest in our home a few days this week. We are so grateful for her willingness to come down from Layton and tend the kids a few days while our nanny is on a much deserved vacation. Thanks grandma for all the love you give our babies and your helpful hands. WE LOVE YOU!

Happy 2 Year Anniversary Celeste and Kris!

Look at this cute, sweet couple! I look at Celeste and can't believe I have known her since she was 3! She has grown into and amazing and beautiful woman. We can't wait to meet her twins when they arrive soon. We love you guys!

Just Isaac

I have posted pictures of Ethan and Abby this morning and felt that I could not resist posting some of the "Jellyman". I have to share these favorite baby photos of mine of this little professor son of ours! Can you believe he will be in Kindergarten next year? HOLY COW!

Missing Home

The kids have been asking to "go home" a lot lately...that is, errr, to our old house. This makes me feel sad, because I am missing it as well. I uploaded this photo of our old house simply because the Spring there was just always so beautiful. I know we all do love our new home, I think it's just that our memories at our old house were so wonderful. I don't think life can get any sweeter than it was for all of our years there. We love the awesome space in our new home and are starting to make so many wonderful friends in the surrounding neighborhoods. I think if we could get some warm weather here and enjoy the sunshine, that would help tremendously. Isn't this house still so beautiful though???

Abby...One Year Ago...

I can't believe this pictures were only take a year ago! Look how this little kitten has grown! It's funny to think of how many things have changed since then. In the last photo, Aunt Celeste is holding Abby. In a few weeks, "Aunt Leste" will welcome her own twin baby boys into the world! WOW!

The Many Faces of Ethan

I just love this guy! He teaches all of us so many valuable lessons. He loves Mario more than anything and wishes for his upcoming 4th birthday party to be a "Mario" Party, just like his 3rd birthday. Do you think it is crazy to let him have another "Mario" celebration?

Good Morning!

Ok, so it has been awhile since I posted anything and many of you are giving me trouble for that! Yes! It is also 5 a.m. while I am writing this. The truth is, that it has been very busy in our house as of late. The kids have been feeling sick for an endless twoo weeks now, but are finally on the mend (I think). We have the feeling that this Utah Winter is NEVER going to go away. In addition, I have misplaced the battery charger to the digital camera. This makes it difficult to upload photos. I woke up at 4 a.m. this morning to Isaac begging for a drink of water. When Justin told him there was some by his bed, he replied "no dad, that water is not fresh enough." So, I got up to get him a drink and put him back to bed...but there was no going back to bed for me. I spent the next half-hour rummaging through drawers to find that stinkin' charger with no luck. Hopefully I'll be back up and running again soon! As for now, I'll post a few things I do have saved on my computer!
