Spaghetti Night

Our niece, Livy, is killer cute and we have gotten to take in quite a bit of her this week. I wish you all could have seen her shaking with excitement once the plate of sketti landed on her tray.

Plate one.
Break before plate two.
Plate two.
"All done."

Honey Cate Is Here!

We have a new niece!

Catherine Honey Hill made her debut on July 19 weighing in at 7 Lbs. She is healthy and the baby mama, Natalie, did a phenomenal job fighting throughout the ~13 hours of labor. Drew and Natalie didn't find out the sex of the baby and they were the only ones who knew the name options up until she was born. Not knowing the name or sex really added to the anticipation of the day. Ashley and I are super pumped about another cute niece.
According to the people who are responsible for such things (pictured below), she is going to go by the name 'Honey Cate'. See if you can find that one on the Popular Baby Names List 2009 or any year before or after.
Babies are, in my judgment, the best toys ever created - even better than bouncy balls. Tonight, my parents came over and we got to do a webcam chat where we 'played' with Honey Cate and her parents all the way in Denver, CO.

We love Honey Cate!

"The Pledge To Allegiance"

You see, there is never a dull moment when the Hill-Craft-Kessler-Etc. Crew teams up for their Annual Beach Extravaganza. Though, this year, we are missing some key contributors. Love ya Kinsley and Drat!

Here's a small sample of the hilarity produced each evening when sometimes more than 30 people gather in a small area to create fun. My mama, affectionately known as L-Boogie, got us kicked off with a little 4th of July celebration. She was so excited, she got a little tongue tied.
