Andrea's Hazzard Free Farms featured on Our City Our Story...Check out the link below!!!

In related news, Andrea had a speaking engagement in Rockford, and my mom was in the audience!!  My mom said Andrea was a great speaker.  She was informative and had some entertaining jokes (oh that Hilton humor...).   

Good job, Annie!

Zach and Leyla got hitched on the beach April 12, 2012.  Since most of us weren't there to watch, they are planning a celebration at their home on September 8, 2012.

We have a TV star in the crew...Nate Aye!!

Posted on June 8, 2012 at 5:45 PM Comments comments (13)

Yes, our own Nate Aye, is now a reality TV star.  Who would have thunk it?  He participated in American Ninja Warrior and did really well!!  He placed in the top 30 for the Midwest region and was shown on G4 and NBC!! 

Drew and I watched and thought they should have shown more footage of him instead of all these other guys, but it was still cool to see him on it!

Check out the article about him in the Daily Herald by clicking here!!

Keaton got Baptised!

Keaton was baptised on April 22, 2012.  He didn't cry a bit during the submersion, acted like it was no big deal!   Katrina (yours truly) is the lucky godmother... :D

Yes, that's right!  Their kids, Jake, Josh and Tristan, will be getting a new little sister or brother around August 15th. 

  Any guesses on what they will have?  I kinda think Leyla needs another girl in that clan of all boys, but time will tell....

Family FB

Since half of the family seems to be on Facebook anyhow, should we start our own Group? Would anyone use it?

Should I experiment by posting this on Facebook?

Aww yeah, one day and counting until I'm on the Mediterranean cruise with a few of the Other Hiltons.  Just heard that Grams, the Newtons and Mary Ellen have made it to Barcelona.  Shan, Pam, Sara and Josh are headed out today.   Stan and Cath will be headed out tomorrow with me and Liz (Shan's bff). 

I will take lots of pictures to show, but I will you were all comin' with us!!   Hopefully see you soon! Love, Katsy:roll:

Lu - hope it's a happy one!!  Embrace it...although it was hard for me to believe at the time, the best is yet to come after 3-0!!

P.S.  Everyone else, have a good day, and do your taxes.  I still have to do my state taxes.  I will try to do so without too much cursing of Illinois and its shady politicians...8)

VACAY - What do you think???

Posted on April 10, 2011 at 2:19 PM Comments comments (13)

Hey, anybody interested in doing a mini-Hilton vacation - maybe a long weekend (4-5 days) in July?  I know it's April already, but surely there's some place we can go that's not too terribly far.  After all, the important thing is being together, right?
