Yes,I love the Twilight series by Stephenie Meyer. I am reading the books for the third time. I also enjoyed the movie and I have seen it three times now. I like the soundtrack (not because it's Twilight) but because I like a lot of the songs. I admit,I'm crushing on Robert Pattinson's portrayal of Edward. I thought he did an awesome job and really brought Edward to life. The fact that he is easy on the eyes certainly doesn't hurt.

The reason I am posting this is because I'm tired of the comments about it! Unless you have read the books,I don't want to hear your opinions about them. I don't find them to be "sinful" books and I'm really surprised at the people who have read them and think that way. Some people call me obsessed and maybe I am a little bit. It's nice to find something that I really enjoy when there is so much garbage out there!

Now I'm off to read Eclipse while I impatiently wait for the New Moon trailer.

My Twilight review!

I don't have time to write a long review because I still need to do my primary lesson for tomorrow. (ACK!) I will say this...

~I loved the movie!

~The actors playing Edward and Bella were better than I thought they would be. I loved Robert Pattinson's portrayal of Edward.

~I *heart* Edward!

~I liked the entire Cullen family.

~Edward is hawt!

~I wasn't fond of Eric,he kinda bugged. Mike was a goof,I laughed.

~Loved the prom scene,so sweet!

I want to see it again and I can't wait for the next one! :D :D

Why,oh why didn't anyone warn me about that creepy trailer???? That was freaky ok,that's what it was!!! :( I wanna go see Twilight again but I could do without the previews! *shudder*

No more wire hangers!!

Just so you all know,getting 6 hours of interrupted sleep isn't enough for me. Duders goes to bed around 6:00pm and wakes up around 6:00am..I don't go to bed until 11:30 or 12:00. I am also interrupted at least twice a night. I have been like a zombie this whole week and now I just pulled a Joan Crawford on my kids. My voice hit a decibel I have never heard before in my life. Dogs were howling and they still couldn't drown out my voice. I've heard the expression,"Don't cry over spilled milk" but apparently that doesn't apply to cereal.

If you all are out and about today be sure to wave when you see me..I'll be the one up in the sky,flying on her broom.

Do you know what makes a baby laugh?

The sound of his sister burping.

Yep,I posted twice in one day. Don't act so surprised.

Guess who's spoiled?

I bought a new camera at Best Buy yesterday! My old camera broke about a month ago and I was going crazy without one because I love taking pictures. I think it may have gotten wet because the buttons only worked sporadically. Brady also loved to get my camera so he may have done something to it. I didn't find out it didn't work until I took my kids to the zoo. After 3 pictures the shutter button just stopped working. At least I had a camera on my phone so I could get a few pics.

I bought a Canon power shot SX10 IS. My SIL has a canon and she recommended it. This time I played it safe and bought geek squad protection..just in case. I'm so glad I'll have a camera for the holidays! :)

Supernatural, Yellow Fever: Dean Versus CAT! (Dean/Jensen Scream!)

This clip still cracks me up! The look on his face is priceless!

If you know nothing about this show I'll explain what makes the scene so funny. Dean and his brother hunt demons and monsters so they are pretty tough guys. Dean is not afraid of anything until he catches this "fever",where people are scared to death, literally. Dean even runs away from a little dog with a bow in it's hair! So frightening!

Yay for date night!

Tonight Adam and I are going to see the new James Bond movie,"Quantum of Solace". Afterwards we are going to the Training Table (a Utah original). ;)

Does anyone else have any fun plans tonight?

A must read.

Millie posted a link to this article on her blog. I am in awe of this man and what he has to deal with on a daily basis. Not just as a Mormon,but as a member of the LAPD as well.

I must be psychic..

Raise your hand if you have the crankiest kids today.

*ME! ME! ME!*

I bet my SIL can hear me from her room. It's not a happy time in my house right now.

So sleepy..

So at 6:30 this morning,everyone was awake except for Brady. Camden woke up at 5:50 and I had to change his diaper. Then Brianna came out and a few minutes later Adam got up for work. At 6:15, Josh came out of his room. I think there will be a lot of crankiness in my house today since the kids went to bed late last night. Sleep,I miss thee. *SIGH*

On the bright side I am picking up hubby's paycheck today. :-)

This is for Kate who tagged me for the 8 things meme. :)

Don't you just wish... could snap your fingers and your kids would fall asleep? For the last week,Brianna has been whining every time we put her to bed. It's making me nuts,not to mention that her whining keeps Josh awake. Thank goodness Camden has been sleeping better or I would be cuckoo.

Before I go to bed..

...I have a couple of funny stories to share. My mom told me about this one last night. My sister teaches 6 year olds in primary,same as me. A little boy in her class got in trouble with his dad and the boy was very upset. He said to his dad,"You know,you aren't my only father,I have a Father in Heaven too!!" That just cracked me up! Kids are too funny sometimes! Being in primary for almost 2 years,I have heard some cute things. The cutest was something a little boy in my class said during his prayer last year. He said,"...and please bless our primary not to be paralyzed by Satan". It took everything I had not to burst out laughing! Oh my goodness,it was so hilarious! I just love when kids talk like that. :-) They are such cute little spirits!

A difficult night.

As a mom,one of the hardest things to see is my kids in pain or scared. Tonight Josh and Bri came out of their room after they had been tucked in,saying they heard a noise that scared them. I went in there and I couldn't hear anything. As I moved closer to Bri's bed,I could hear a very faint is how the conversation went:

Me: "It sounds like a toy with a dying battery."

Josh: "It must be a toy under Brianna's bed!"

Brianna: "I don't want something making noises under my bed!!!!" *tears well up in her eyes*

Me: "There are no toys under your bed except for legos. I'll get daddy and see if he can hear the noise."

Daddy: "There are no toys under your bed that make noise Brianna. Quiet down so I can listen again. Oh,jeez!"

Daddy saved the day by discovering the mystery noise was coming from a dying battery in Brady's cookie jar. We removed it from the room and all was well...or so we thought. Bri came out of the room crying about the bad movies in her head. It broke my heart to see her so scared. :-( I think the images were from Halloween commercials for shows like Goosebumps which is for older kids. We decided to say a prayer and then I let them see a few funny clips from Fairly Oddparents and Spongebob. Brianna said that made her feel a little better but she was still scared. So we turned on the lights in the living room and left the door open a little wider. She asked daddy to carry her to bed and she told us thank you for turning on the lights. Hopefully tomorrow night will be better.

When will it end??

I still have a cough and I've been sick now for 2 weeks. It's getting kind of old. To make matters worse,last night I ate Taco Time and it was really hating me. I feel miserable today and I have to run an errand this afternoon.

So is it spring yet? :P

Also my best friend and SIL Karla is having surgery today. Please keep her in your thoughts and prayers. Love ya Karla! *HUGS*

My thoughts.

So today started out fine,I was disappointed in the election outcome but I was happy to hear about Prop 8 passing in California. This afternoon I have been reading a lot of people's comments about the election and Prop 8 and I'm starting to get ornery so I will just say this...

First off I want to say I'm grateful to be an American. God bless our nation!

I am not happy about Obama winning, but because he will be the President I will support him as long as he does a good job. May God bless him to make the right decisions for our country.

I am very upset about this commercial. These people say they are being discriminated against,so they discriminate against us? Because we don't have the same beliefs as they do, we are attacked. Yep, that makes perfect sense to me. There is even a lawyer comparing the fight against gay marriage to the fight against Hitler. That is just ridiculous!

Now,I'll get off my soapbox.

Halloween pic

Since my camera is broken,all of my Halloween pics are on a disposable camera but here is one that my SIL Jenn took with her camera. Here are the kids and I with Great Grandma Spendlove. I was an angel (with no wings or halo),Josh was a fireman,Brianna was a "cheraleada" and Camden was Spider-Man. Brady was not in his Batman costume because he was REALLY ornery! However he did wear it to go trick or treating later that night.

Can I just say..

..that I am so glad the election is almost over???
