We here at Smiling Hill are pleased to announce our first blogsite. We hope that family and friends will enjoy our array of family "pics" and selected adventures. In the spirit of Smiling Hill, we hope that every blog is full of ridiculous sunshine. For those interested in SH lore, the title "Smiling Hill" was the name of a family farm nestled in the rolling hills of yesteryear (sigh). Although closed years ago, may the spirit of SH open your hearts and capture your imaginations, literally.

The Physical Toll...
When does it pay to have a surgeon in the family??? We always called him for things like, "my kid has a runny nose and is crying a lot... what should I do." I'm sure he rolled his eyes more than once at our calls... If I had to guess his favorite calls were the ones about strange rashes Ben had... all those rashes....
So again my question.... When does it pay to have not just a Dr. in the family, but a surgeon?
When you are helping your favorite big sister move and your baby girl falls on a dangerous metal moving ramp and splits the back of her head open. (blood everywhere--sorry no pictures of that) Only 5 free stitches later this is what Abbey had to say about it... for several days.... over and over..., "I got an owiiiiiies. Uncle Dayne fixed it." Then she would scratch the back of her head.
Even when their life flashes before your eyes, they still say the cutest things that make you smile! ~d
