Check this baby Out!
Did I ever tell all of you how grateful I am to have a hubby who keeps my I-Pod up to date with the latest and greatest music? It's one of the many wonderful things he does for me...
I got him a new I-Phone for his Christmas/B-day present....
The thought never occurred to me that I would gain his old I-Phone (and all the awesome apps he has on it) in the process and the kids would in turn get my old I-Pod.....See how it works, everyone's happy!
Now I can lay in bed and blog, check facebook, pay bills, listen to music, and play my FAVORITE GAME PEGGLE!
I'M going Hi-Tech on everyone!

Playing lots of Games, Barbie house, Halo Risk, Mario and putting Legos together with Mr. Hill until I want to lose my mind only to have the Lego set I worked for hours on smash to bits moments later. Do I sound like I am complaining?
It was the most fun I have had for awhile.....
Finished these Pirate Quilts just in time to give to my best first mates on Christmas Eve.
Now their pirate room is complete....
If you are reading this and weren't a recipient....just wait until your next birthday....
Spent a quiet "low key" Christmas Eve at home opening our packages sent from family, eating yummy food, watching Christmas movies and snuggling into our new PJs......
And waking up to giggly boys at 2 a.m. in the living room!
I quickly ushered them back to bed. They went back to sleep on the bottom bunk while I and my cast climbed to the top to settle in for a long winter's nap.
That was abruptly interrupted with a terrible scream at 4 a.m. from drama queen Abby.
She had a cough, a cold and once again the entire house was up.
So, we went with it....letting the kids open it all up.
By some stroke of miracle we were all back in bed at 6 a.m. Awoke at noon and had breakfast then....
It was the most bizarre Christmas and all I can say is Benedryll is coming to visit on next Christmas Eve day!

Now that's more like it!
More family pics to come, want to wait until you get your Christmas cards so I don't spoil it.
Oh, and I got a new cast on my left foot today and it's CAMO...
so much cuter than that yucky white one I had last time.
I'll post pictures soon and I'm afraid the mister got some video of me coming out of my narcotic induced silliness. It's sure to make you snicker?
Have a great weekend all!

I had a surprise visitor today.....
Donny's dad lived at the community I work for.
He never forgets us a Christmas time.
Donny is truly the sweetest, most wonderfully down to earth person you could imagine.
Picture all the "getty" seniors today waiting for their special surprise guest.
It was especially touching to watch him share his great accomplishment with our Alzheimer's residents.
He even autographed a photo for my mom for Christmas!

I have a good friend flying out from KC for the Film Festival this year.
Anyone have any good screenings on their list that they would like to share with us?
If you've never had this experience, you should.....
And shame on you if you live in Utah and have never gone.

They were out the front door without any coats or shoes before I could get a goodbye out of them.
No goodbye kisses or hugs.
They were blissfully entertained:
ALL DAY AND ALL NIGHT.
They came in the door and collapsed from sheer happiness.
Jus and I went to see New Moon.
I surprisingly LOVED it, especially the soundtrack!
It took me 9 months to see Twilight.
I rolled my eyes several times through that one.
Sorry if that statement offends any of you die hard fans.
New Moon only got a couple of eye rolls but I really enjoyed it....
Then, we went grocery shopping together, took a long nap, ate a yummy dinner with friends and chilled at Barnes & Noble for a bit.
I missed the kids, but it was nice to relax with my dream guy!
YOU ARE THE BEST!!!!!

I keep teasing him that he doesn't even act this in love when we bring a new baby home.
It's been a few years since that has happend at our house and probably entirely untrue.
I love teasing him anyway.
It's now my turn to pretend I don't hear her crying in the middle night or needs something.
He faithfully, without complaint takes care of all the needs of this little sweetie.
I adore so many things about him, this is just one more to add to the endless list!
