Halloween Night 2007

Well, today was really fun! Poppie had a party in his class and they painted his face, he got to meet the "Pumpkin Fairy"and he had lots of treats. (You can see his face painted a little while he is "helping" to carve the pumpkin.) Andi and Miguel had a fun day at school and they really enjoyed carving our pumpkin and making the treat bags for our trick-or-treaters. This is so fun. Halloween is one of the days where you can be a kid again through your children. I hope you all enjoy our special Halloween Hill Family Soul Train. lol!

Church Trunk-Or-Treat

Every year our church has a "Trunk-Or-Treat" night before Halloween. This is where everyone parks in the parking lot and each child goes trick-or-treating to every trunk... "Trunk-Or-Treat." Our church is awesome because we do everything here we did in California, but we sure to miss our old ward family. Anyway, the kids had a lot of fun. By the end of the night, Andi and Poopie were wiped out, but as usual, Miguel was awake as ever! :) I even added a pic of me to this post against my better judgement. lol!

I knew this day would come...

But not this soon! When I went to pick Poopie up from preschool today, he was kissing and hugging a little girl named Victoria. My baby is a Mac Daddy! His teacher and I watched him for a little while and after he kissed her, he played hard to get as she was chasing him around. I called Eric and asked him if he was giving Poopie lessons while I was not watching. Lol! It looks like my little boy has offically applied for his "Players Card". His look in this pic says it all. WATCH OUT LADIES!!!

A Real Family Day

I often find myself wondering what I ever did to deserve such a great family. I would pray and pray as a young child to have this family I though about in my mind, but my prayers were not answered... until now. This time of year always makes me more mindful of my blessings, but even more so this year because our family has gone though so many changes and I am grateful for every one. I was reminded of my great family this weekend because we had a real family day at a local Family Farm Pumpkin Patch. I let the kids dress in their costumes for our outing and it turned out to be such a fun day. After Andi and Miguel's soccer game, we went home to change and we were at the Pumpkin Patch by 11am. It was a really cold morning so by the time it was 11am, it was beautiful but still cool which was perfect "Pumpkin Patching" weather. Andi is Pocahontas, Miguel is a Dr., and Poopie is a Puppy. This pumpkin patch was so beautiful and had so much to offer, all for the price of admission! There was a petting zoo, a long hay ride, interactive area's, a free hot dog and a great area for just roming and playing. There were cut outs of a lot of cartoon characters but Poopie was not in the mood to stay in one place for more than 3 seconds. The pics I will show you are a few out of 100! lol! During the hayride we passed a beautiful small lake, animals, and corn! I felt like I was really in Texas! Andi and Miguel got to try their hand at "Longhorn Roping" while Poopie was trying to talk to the goats. I was looking at the beautiful blue sky, the rustling trees, the open spaces, my children with their Daddy and I kept asking myself... What have I done to deserve this? I hope everyone is enjoying their family and enjoying this wonderful time of year. I know I am!

Happy Fall Ya'll !

New member of the Hill Family (For Halloween Only) :)

Mr. Bones has joined our family for the next two weeks. He is a big Angels fan (like me) and he likes to sing. Poopie is not sure about him... Speaking of Poopie, he has learned three new words in the past few days. Car, Door and Chair. It is kind of hard to hear him on the video, but you can make it out.

Happy 1st Birthday Elena!

Our cousin Elena is having her 1st birthday party today. We are sad that we can't be there, but we have a special message for her... Love, Andi, Miguel and Poopie

Soccer Siblings

This year, I have Andi and Miguel in soccer on the same team so it is MUCH easier for me. I do enjoy watching them play. I feel so proud of them and how far they have come in their life. Their team name is The Swarm. I am the co-team mom so I made hair bows and planned the soccer parties etc. I really enjoy this stuff. :) I also attached a pic of Poopie in his seat after the game. He has a "friend" named BoBo who is actually a backpack. He was giving him a hug when I snapped the pic.

Hill Family Soul Train!

This clip speaks for itself. I love my little family. It takes a minute to load...

8 Going on 18

Andi turned 8 on Sept. 22nd, but we went out to celebrate on the 29th. We went to this great palce called Gotti Town with our neighbors. It is all you can eat pizza and like Chuck-E-Cheese on steroids. There is a Merry-Go-Round, bumper cars and all kinds of rides and games. Andi had a great time. Our neighbor's kids are the same age as my kids so it works out great. She is doing well in school and loves soccer and girl scouts. Her favorite movie is High School Musical and I can't help but think that is to old for her. I have checked out the movie to make sure it is ok, and it is, but shouldn't she still think it is gross to see a boy and girl kiss? Shouldn't she only be interested in dolls and play-dough, not glitter and giggling with her friends about boys. Yikes. We might have our hands full with this beauty. Dad is already practicing the "kill" stare for the boys...

The Poopie Parade!

Ladies and Gentleman, Boys and Girls, come early to get your seats for the Poopie Parade! That's right folks. My baby was in his first parade at school on Sept. 29th. I was the only crazy parent that was crying...geez. I love watching him grow up, but it kind of hurts too. Willl it always be like this? I get a flip-flop feeling in my
stomach every time he does something new. I find myself looking at his pics when he was just 4lbs 11oz and asking myself where that little baby went, but then again still seeing him in the face of my "big boy." Is parenting like riding a roller coaster all the time? Where good times are bad and bad times are good with all of the ups and downs? I know I have a lot to learn. Anyway, here are pics of Poopie sitting with his class, his parade and the pumpkin he made. And yes, I was the only parent there taking a pic of their child's masterpiece up-close. I really do love this stuff.
