we hung out with the over 60 crowd last night....

My mom's cousins had a costume party and they were nice enough to include us.
They made authentic curry chicken and tumeric rice. It was the best meal I have ever eaten. No kidding.
I am basically posting this just so that Missy can see my dad posing in his costume.

Excerpt from a widely circulated e-mail written by no other than Gary Wilson....

"However always go to http://hillenblog.blogspot.com/ and then look on the right side for Wilson Family Blog and click on it there. The reason is we always want to be the #1 outgoing link on Hillens blog and by doing this we will get a lot more hits. Rachel Burch is either number #1 or #2 and it is killing her that we are beating her as the #1 outgoing link.

So check out our blog often so we can get more hits then Rachel."

I bet you thought I wouldn't find out, didn't you?

This is purely my opinion........

I think these inflatable snowglobe things are the biggest waste of money ever.
Greg- If I really did have a bone to pick with you, I would not use a blog to communicate it. I think you had a very valid point.

Is this shallow enough for you Greg?

What a beautiful weekend. Really, the weather could not of been more perfect.
We drove to St.Louis thursday afternoon. We got to my aunt's house around 8:00 and surprised her because apparently I forgot to let her know that we were coming on thursday instead of friday like we had originally planned. That's what happens when plans are left up to me.
Friday we went to a great pumpkin patch where we played for awhile. We left there and headed for The Galleria. Now shopping is really the main reason why I leave town. Do you remember when a trip to a big city was not complete without a stop at Old Navy? Then it was Abercrombie. Next, Forever 21. Well, now it's H&M and Anthropologie for me. Of course, I can't afford anything at Anthropologie unless it's on sale and their sales weren't that great on Friday. But, H&M was great!
After shopping we ate at a new italian restuarant then headed to Crate & Barrel. We stayed up late that night playing card games with my family.
Saturday we packed a picnic lunch and went to a HUGE apple orchard. After spending the better part of the day picking apples and enjoying the country life, we left to do a little more shopping. We enjoyed a great steak dinner that night at my aunt's house.
I woke up a little bummed on Sunday thinking about how we were missing hearing Pastor Rogers preach. I'll have to get the recording of that.
We packed up the car and went to the Musuem of Transportation. The Talburts had been the previous weekend and had recommended it. It was fun and quite the bargain at only $4.00 per adult admission.
We got home around 7:00 and ate Lenny's subs with Mandy and Erika. Then we went to Mandy's to watch the Office episode we missed while on the road. I don't like that new girl flirting with Jim!
There you have it. A web log of our weekend away.

a few things...

Is anyone else watching Dancing With the Stars? Let me just tell you, Slater can dance!
And Jerry Springer cannot.
We got another update from our agency. We're still #1 on the list which means we should hear any day. You've all heard me say that before.
Help me out. What should Lucy be for Halloween?
