Twilight... the Movie

Ok so I went to the opening night of the movie, stood in line for over an hour, fought random weird women over "saved" seats.... laughed at something Laura's mom said, then something Laura said just as the movie started.... then it was down to serious viewing!!!
I have to say... I was a bit disappointed with the movie... I admit that my expectations were high and maybe that is why I didnt like it as much as everyone else did. I thought that Bella was really inarticulate and I didnt get that from the book at all so that bugged me and there were other little things that bothered me cuz they were out of sequence from what was in the book.
I did have a ton of fun with the people that I went with and will more than likely watch the movie again once its out on video, so that I can really think on it. I have also started to re- read the books just to remind myself how much I actually loved them.
I know that I'm sure that there are people out there that LOVED the movie, just as Im sure that I may hear how crazy I am.. dont bother.. I know that Im crazy... and Im gonna stay that way. Here are a couple shots of me and the friends!!

This is Laura, Vaka, and me.. Im the pale one compared to the other two!

This is me and Jo

Ok, so its been over a week since I last posted! So sorry... life just happened! I got busy, then I got sick and now I can actually take a minute to post.

Last Sunday, Kaleb and I attended church, for those of you that know us you know that it was the first time ever that Kaleb has been(not something I'm proud of) but there it is. He had a blast and really liked his class. He looked so handsome in his new church clothes! I will hopefully have pictures of that soon to blog.. Im thinking of putting them on our Christmas card this year. He certainly is growing up, he will be 8 a week !!!! I can hardly believe that he is that old already and that he tests me as much as he does! Guess he is more like me than I ever realized.

Well that about does it for me today... I am going to see Twilight tonight and am REALLY excited! I cant wait to post about it next week... I better not be disappointed!!!

Happy Veterans Day!

So tomorrow is Veterans Day so I wanted to take just a few minutes and say thank you to a few soldiers in my life that have served or are currently serving in the military and let them know that they are not forgotten today and so that they know that they arent forgotten any day of the year! So I personally want to THANK my uncle Steve, who is currently serving in Iraq now. I also want to give my thanks to my cousin Zan, my uncle Rod, my friend Bobby and to my late grandpa Syd for all their service through out the years. Thanks guys for your sacrifice and for your actions while in service. I am proud to have each and everyone of you in my lives!

Thank you to the families of the service men and women who are serving now for the sacrifice and hard work that they do each day. I sleep better at night knowing that we have men and women fighting to keep this nation safe, its not an easy job by any means, and I am glad that they do it so selflessly.
Here is a prayer that I found for our Veterans- one which I will read each day!

A Veteran’s Day Prayer

Dear Lord,

Today we honor our veterans, worthy men and women who gave their best when they were called upon to serve and protect their country. We pray that you will bless them, Lord, for their unselfish service in the continual struggleto preserve our freedoms, our safety,and our country’s heritage, for all of us.
Bless them abundantly for the hardships they faced, for the sacrifices they made for their many different contributions to America’s victories over tyranny and oppression. We respect them, we thank them,we honor them, we are proud of them,and we pray that you will watch over these special people and bless them with peace and happiness.
In Jesus’ name we pray; Amen.
By Joanna Fuchs
I love you all... thanks!

Happy Birthday Grandma!!!

November 6, 1934 - My grandma Judy was born and tomorrow 11/6/08 she will turn 74.

My grammy is the absolute best. She is so kind, loving and so dang funny! She never ceases to amaze me by the things that she has faced and over come. In 2007 my dear cute grandma had to have surgery on her knee, which then in turn caused her to have a major life threatening infection in her intestine which almost killed her. In fact its quite amazing that she is even alive today after all that she went through. She started a life flight which due to weather caused her to have to travel to Salt Lake City, and LDS Hospital by ambulance. That lead to abdominal surgery and a drug induced coma for her to get better. She did.. and we were all so blessed with more time with Grandma.

In early October 2008 she lost her dear husband of almost 55 years due to complications of Lung Cancer, and she is now on her own, and doing FABULOUSLY I might add. Im sure that some days are harder than others for her to face, but she is a strong woman and I know that she can make it~! I believe that the women in my family are as strong as they are because she is the head of this family, and she leads us by example.
I love my grandma more than anything and am so glad that she is still here with all of us!!
Happy Happy Birthday Granny Grunt!!!! I love you tons and tons!
P.S. this is for those that know the story to enjoy and those that dont to understand that in our family my grandma is quite the funny lady!!

Proud Moment!

Today started earlier than normal for Kaleb and I because today is Election Day so we went to VOTE! It was an amazing experience for me as not only a woman voting but also as a mom voting to be able to share that with my son.

It was great to see his excitement in the voting process, he was even able to "select" the button for the team that we wanted to see heading this great country that we live in! He was very proud of the fact that together "WE" voted! It was great to see him want to be a part of it all. I can only hope that as he gets older he will understand the importance of such votes and continue to live the life that he needs to in order to have the opportunity to vote when he is old enough.

Happy Birthday Mom!!!!

Today is my mom's 54th birthday! I just wanted to take a minute and tell her how much I love an appreciate all that she does for me! We are often laughing at ourselves or each other to the point of tears, and some days we drive each other insane (cuz we are so much alike) but I love her anyway!

She is a great example of what kind of mom I should be. She helps me out with Kaleb more than anyone else, without her I would be lost as to what to do with him when he gets off the bus and when I want to go out on the occasional weekend!


Love You!

Trick -or- Treat

So this is a bit late for Halloween, but I wanted to get a pix of Kaleb on and this is the only one that I have. He is the storm trooper and my nephew Elliott is batman. They were able to come to my work to trick or treat before heading out that night when I got home from work. Man, did they clean up! Kaleb has an entire shopping bag full of candy.. some of which is making its way to the garbage! :)

Anyway.. just wanted to share the pix! Hope everyone had a great Halloween!
