Well, I thought the book was ok, but the movie was so much worse!! I gave it a 2 out of 5 stars. Here's my review.......
The only character that was kinda right was Bella's dad. His character was entertaining but much younger and skinnier than my mind imagined. Bella was the worse actress EVER!! In the book she was to be beautiful without knowing it, she was so not. She doesn't open her mouth when she talks and has one look for all her emotions. Alice was cute but too big, she was suppose to be tiny. Rosolie wasn't nearly beautiful enough. Edward.....just not perfect enough. The way it was cut from the book made no sense. All of a sudden they were in love and couldn't live without each other. The high school was too big and much too diverse. Part of the relationship between Bella and her dad is how she cooks and cleans for him, that never happened, they ate at the diner every night (and stephanie meyer had a cameo in the diner). Emmett was ok, but jasper looked weird the whole movie. i could go on forever!! didn't love the movie!

Happy Thanksgiving!!!!

For Thanksgiving my Aunt and her family come here and then the next year we go to her house, this year it was here. We had about 25 people and of course I was busy with my kid to take too many pictures but I did get a few. It was great to spend time with my cousins and let our baby meet her 2nd cousin (I guess that's what he'd be to her). He's family either way!! We missed all our loved ones who couldn't make it! (The one with the big circle was a game of "Big Bootie).

Think she was ready to eat?? She loved her first Thanksgiving meal, and I am so thankful for her!!!

Play Date

My sister and I took our kids to the park the other day. We had fun and our baby was enjoying her first look upclose at leaves. It was fun!!

This is the picture Scott took with his cool camera. I love it!

Bath time Rocks!!

We are lucky enough to be home every night for bath time. Our baby LOVES to play in the bath. I think she will be a great swimmer someday (here we come olympics!)

Time sure flies

8 months.....I can't even believe it's been that long. I love this girl so much and she really is an amazing baby!! I feel blessed to have her in my life. I feel like she's a little behind in things but this is what she can do (and I don't care if she's a late bloomer)....
1. She army crawls everywhere. Not quite a crawl but she'll get to you either way!
2. She is eating off mommy and daddy's plate (still mostly baby food).
3. She goes to bed at 7:30ish and usually sleeps through to 6am, then I nurse her and she's back to sleep til 8ish.
4. She picks everything up off the ground and puts it in her mouth. I gotta keep things clean.
5. She can entertain herself for a long time. She loves things that aren't "toys" wooden spoons, tv remotes, phones.
6. She sits up. she's not sure how to go from sitting to crawling or the other way, but she can sit on her own.
7. She drinks out of a sippy cup.

I never knew love could be so strong!!!!!! I love being a mom!


Boy do I have a story for so wont believe it. we have been working a lot up in paradise trying to get ready for the big move. on saturday we decided to do our laundry up there too. i put all our laundry into big black garbage bags, easier to carry. when we got there alex got our vaccuum out of the trunk, and while doing that pulled one of the bags out and set it on the ground. as the day went on other black garbage bags started to pile up around the laundry bag. by the end of the day we were tired and still had to go to the dump to drop off all the garbage we'd pulled out of the house so we loaded all the gargabe bags into the truck and guess what got thrown in too.....yep, the laundry bag. Every outfit our baby has worn for the last 2 weeks gone..... thrown away.....and i'm sick over it. i will never put our laundry in garbage bags again, so not worth it.

Happy Halloween

Our plan this year was for me to be Dorothy, Alex was the scarecrow and baby was the lion. Her costume was one of those warm ones and it was way too hot and mine looked bad so i was the wicked witch of the east (red slippers and all) before the house fell on her. It was fun!
