Photo Tag

I have been tagged again. For this one, the rules are simple: go to your 6th folder in your picture files, and choose the 6th photograph and upload it. Then tag five other people.

This is our Christmas tree last year (2007). We did a green and purple theme because green symbolizes prosperity and purple symbolizes luck in the feng shui world. Jason and I have some fun playing around with feng shui. It is interesting to read and learn about. Thanks Becky! You definitely keep things fun!
I tag Nick and Anne Marie, Alexis, Lindsay, Debbie, and Meri Kay.

Announcing my new painting!!

I am so excited about my new painting given to me by my dear father in law! He combined some of my favorite things and painted with his own hands this oil painting of a pink rose. My favorite flower and color. I love it so much! Thank you just doesnt seem to say how grateful and honored I feel. Thanks Dad! You are so talented!

Tossed Sarah Elmo salad anyone?

I am discovering that Sarah likes to sit in things. Funny girl!

Hang on to the summer

I know these roses days are numbered but I will atleast be able to be reminded of their beauty when it is snowy and cold and they have gone to sleep until the spring comes back.

Smells like Teen Spirit

I love my Alexis and my Lindsay! They are beautiful both inside and out. I have promised myself that I am going to take my camera back from them and document them and their progression too. I remember when I was their ages and it wasnt long before I had found Jason and had moved on. They will only be with us for a short time now and these days are precious.

Hey Alexis and Lindsay do you want to dance?

I am ready!!

Head shots you say?

Oooh baby good times! I am not sure all of these are "authorized" to be on the blog but I am the boss applesauce and here they are. I think they are great.

Wooo I am not sure what this is trying to say but it looks like someone needs more sleep and a hair brush. Cracks me up! She is so serious too.

Wow so still and perfect...one would almost think it was a picture of a picture....oh my bad, it is. I love these sweet spirits! I love that they have a desire to do what is right. I enjoy that they can have fun without a lot of money spent. It makes me happy that they are happy and love life. Alexis and Lindsay you are the best!!!

Brownie Sneeker!

Before I start my blog just a little disclaimer....My older 2 daughters (especially Lindsay) are taking a lot of pictures of the baby lately and they had better be on the look out because now I have a bunch of shots to get of them to even things out!

Ok with that said...WE HAVE A BROWNIE DOUGH SNEEKER IN OUR HOUSE!!! This time we caught her red handed. Or should I say brown, and wait, it looks like it is mostly on her face so I suppose I should say we caught her brown faced not red handed!!

Please give me the spoon Sarah!?!

Ok you win....

AWH man!! It's on my hands!

Oh well. YUM-O!!

The Hill Family Birthday Party For September

We get together once a month with the Hill Family at our house to celebrate all of the peeps birthdays who fall in that particular month. These are pictures from September celebrating Dad Hill and Sam. PS forgive my naughty build a bear in the corner, Sophie.....(she likes to wear bikinis even though I have told her and told her to be more modest.) PS the 2 birthday boys are both sitting on the love seat. This is Sam on his 19th Birthday and our grandpa Ed Hill.

I remember doing this....

First of all, it has been along time since I blogged but no time like the present to get things all updated right? About a week ago we had what our kids call a "sun rain" and the flood gates opened up! We took the kids out to play in it! I love how it was nearly up to Sarahs knee.

Splash Splash Splash!!

I am so glad that Christian and Gabby were having fun too and helping corral Sarah. Thanks guys!
