just like his mommy

I snapped this real quick with my camera phone. Hugo is into American Idol as much as I am. He was totally into all the singing and music. I can already tell he loves music, it always calms him down.
He'll be one of those really hot guys that play the piano or guitar.
Oh, and FYI... that blanket is LACY'S... he just loves the silkyness of it. I plan on making him his own, very manly, silky blanket. :)

Lacy's Birthday Celebration

This little girl really had a birthday week.

Tuesday at pre-school Lacy got to celebrate her birthday by bringing treats and having the class sing to her.

Wednesday was her actual birthday. She started off the day going to her science class with one of her most favorite friends, Carson. She got to go out to lunch with her Uncle Samuel and Lelan who took her to "Kings Burger" to play. She had so much fun and they spoiled her with treats and a milk shake. Then Papa came over and brought her a balloon and some ice cream sandwiches. Then while I was at mutual my parents took her out for ice cream. On top of all that she was receiving phone calls all day from family. She had a wonderful day filled with people who love her.

On Saturday we had some friends over for a barbeque. She got some presents there and some yummy cupcakes. I think her favorite part was definitely seeing her friends that she hadn't seen in a long time.

Finally on Sunday we had a big family dinner. She waited so patiently to open all her presents until this day so it was super special. She got an easy bake oven, an adorable tea set, a bunch of cute clothes and much more. We had a lot of fun and now Lacy keeps asking if it is still her birthday. When I say no, your birthday is over, she will always reply with, "well I'm still 4 aren't I?"

She is such a cutie and I am so glad to have her in my life!!!

Of corse the boys spent most of the time in front of the TV watching the super-bowl. Thank goodness for DVR so we could all see the best parts of the game, and un-fortunately the worst parts too :(

Awesome family

A sweet letter I had to post from a friend in my ward. I know its long, but if the situation were reversed and I was in need of help, I would wish everyone I know and love would step up and help.
Dear Family and Friends (and family & friends of family & friends),
A miracle happened for us in 2006 when Carter joined our family through adoption. The love and support you gave us at that time was deeply felt and appreciated. We have been so blessed to have such wonderful family and friends who have continued to be mindful of us and prayerful in our behalf. We have been certified, waiting, and hoping for another miracle for about a year and a half now, since October 2007. After a recent failed adoption situation, we are renewing our efforts to "find" our child. We are again asking for your prayers and assistance. Since our chances of adopting increase with exposure, we want to remind you that these days, most successful adoptions fall under the category of designated adoption. Designated adoption is when the birth parents and adoptive parents find each other through a third party.

That is where you come in!WHAT CAN YOU DO TO HELP?* E-mail this message to everyone in your address book who might be willing to help us.* Copy and paste this note into a post on your blog or online community profile (Blogger, Typepad, Facebook, Myspace, etc.).

* Link our Internet profiles on your blog accounts.-
* Bookmark our online profile(s) for future reference.
* Have our pass-along cards with you at all times (feel free to ask for some if you don't have them).
* If you know of a woman who is thinking about placing her baby for adoption, or doesn't quite know what to do, please give her one of our pass-along cards or our web address. You could also post our cards on bulletin boards wherever you think a potential birth mother or someone she knows might see them (such as those in dorms or on college campuses) or share our information with health care providers, ecclesiastical leaders, or other friends and contacts.Adoption in itself is a miracle. We have grown to love adoption and it has become a big part of our lives. We are always willing to talk about our adoption and give you more information, feel free to ask anytime.
You or any potential birth parents may call our toll-free number (1-888-279-9920), e-mail us (, or call our LDS Family Services adoption caseworker Calli Tidwell (480-968-2995). Thank you in advance for all your help as well as your love and support.

Blessings,Shane, Megan, & Carter Hilton
