Just A Tad Bit OCD

I have noticed Hill lines up his muffins at breakfast and straightens things that sit caddy corner on a table but Friday was the Mother of all Mothers.
Hill was quietly playing in his room and Chip went to check in him. In an uh oh tone of voice Chip called for me to come here please!!!
This is what we saw....Good thing Whitney was at the house to assure me he is going to be alright. That just because he lined up EVERY toy across his room in a straight line all facing the same direction was no need for flipping out.

What Is In A Name?

Me: What's your name?
Hill: Hill Hawkins
Me: What's Mommy's name?
Hill: Hill Hawkins Mommy
Me: What's Daddy's name?
Hill: Chip

I'm not sure what's more hilarious, him saying Hill Hawkins Mommy or that he referred to Chip by his real name.

I'm getting use to Hill's friends calling me Hill's Mommy. There's something so sweet and prideful about the sound of that. So glad my name will always be Hill Hawkins Mommy!

Hill's Birthday Day!

So I'm a little past a month overdue, but I cannot NOT post about Hill's birthday on January 12th.  My tiny, itty bitty, silly sweet baby is two!

The birthday boy woke up bright and early and the first words out of my sweet 2 year olds mouth were, "Ride Papa's foh wheeewah!!"

The child is 100% boy and is obsessed with Chip's dads new 4 wheeler that's been at our house. So what do we do? We get dressed and Chip takes him for a spin around the neighborhood.  About 3 minutes after they are gone Chip comes back in and let's me know that they have a morning mission and need my help.  There is a tree down across our neighbors road and Hill wants to save the day by moving it for them.  Chip gathers a chain saw and other equipment and we head to where the tree is.

First, I call my neighbors so they don't freak out when Chip cranks up the chain saw at 7 am thinking the Texas Chain Saw Massacre is about to be reenacted. They are grateful for the call and the removal of the tree.   Here are my boys hard at work.  Well, Chip is hard at work the rest of us supervised and photographed.

Doing a great job dad!  Keep up the good work
As if that wasn't fun enough!  I made cupcakes for Hill's class to eat at snack time to celebrate! Those kiddos are so sweet and crack me up.

He had a great 2nd birthday day.  

The birthday week continued on after I went to pick up Mama Lou at the airport so she could help us celebrate and the events kept getting better as Mimi, Papi and Hannah flew in and then even better building up to the BIG CIRCUS BIRTHDAY PARTY on Saturday! 

Birthday party pics to come!
