Thursday's Thought

"Whatever you are, be a good one."
~Abraham Lincoln

I have this quote in my kitchen and it's one of my favsies.
Isaac brought this beauty home from school the other day.
He is a mighty good poo picker upper.
Apparently he doesn't enjoy himself at all though.
And it's CLEAR that it is a stinky job (as indicated by the squiggly lines)

Have I Ever Told You....

Just how much I adore this band?
I can't stop listening to this album, and all their others.
They seriously do not have a song I dislike.
Good Times....
I hope they come to SLC soon.

The Lost Photos of New York!

Just when you thought we were done with all this...I found more!
Truth is, I cannot stop thinking about how brilliant this experience was.
I want to go back, I want to go back, I want to go back!~
Actually, it's 1 a.m. and I'm still up.
I caught myself looking at these photos for the millionth time....
I was naughty and stayed up and watched a movie with my boyfriend.
Now, I'm creeped out and can't sleep.
Or, maybe I'm a little excited that all of our house guests arrive tomorrow for Sundance.
Our house has never been so clean.

The CNN Building on a rainy Sunday Morning...

The George Washington Bridge and our back door view from the this photo shows all my wrinkles!

I love this building!

Trinity Church

Ground Zero

WTC Visitors Center

The quaint streets of Washington Heights.
We walked these stairs daily from the Subway to the Apartment.

30 Rock

Shopping :)

Momma loves Hello Kitty :)

Indoor Ferris Wheel at the TRU Times Square

Leaving the apartment in Washington Heights to head home.
Did I mention how much we adored staying there?
We loved feeling like "Real New Yorkers"
Much better than any fancy hotel, much better....

I Keep Hearing the Same Question.....

Over, and Over....
And it goes something like this:

"Mom, when is it going to be Summer again?"

We had this discussion on the way home from Church on Sunday.
Then we all dreamed about the fun ways we spend the Summer time as a family.
Things Like:

Roller blading up Provo Canyon and playing in the Falls
Fishing at Vivian Park
Laying on the porch swing and napping and eating otter pops
Eating Watermelon until our tummy's hurt
Camping in Hobble Creek
Swimming up Spanish Fork Canyon
Mountain Biking in Moab
Playing Night Games
Playing in the Irrigation Fields on Irrigation Day

And the list goes on, and on, and on....
Oh dear Summer, Please get here SOON!

You've Probably Noticed......

I have major writer's block.
It's been awhile,
BUT I will be back soon.
In the meantime, I'm searching for inspiration!

Once There Was A Snowman.....

My all-time favorite Christmas Gift!
My best friend gets the award for Most Creative for her Snowman in a Can gift to the Hill babes.
Isn't "Friendly" the cutest snowman you ever did see?

You Know It's A Good Life When...

You can FALL ASLEEP in your mom & dad's bed having just had a nice tubby, warm jammies snuggled under a quilt made for you by your momma with your hand stuck in a bowl that was licked clean of brownie and ice cream....
What a Life!

I Got The Good "STUFF"

As promised...and to make your "Monday" a little's a HIGHLY medicated me just after my last surgery a few weeks ago.
After about 10 minutes of this, Jus decided to get the camera out and rolling.
I can't help but laugh at myself. I was seriously having some issues, slurred speech and all.

Sledding With Cousins!!!!

I am most grateful for the wonderful cousins our kids have.
Justin and I agree that some of our best childhood memories are those days spent playing with our cousins. It's fun to watch our kids make those same memories with their cousins. Christmas Break was an awesome time for all of them to play and have sleep overs!
Thanks to Aunt April and Aunt Nicole for this little adventure!

This is about half of the Hill cousins....we missed all the others!
