I have seen the movie 3 times and let's be honest I could go again. And yes I started reading Twilight again on Sunday (I have read it 3 times already) so I guess it's time to admit that I have a little problem called OCD. I have the feeling that I am not the only one with OCD since I have some great friends who shall remain nameless until they also come to terms with their problem that have been my Twienablers *LOL* I can't wait for New Moon and will start reading that again probably this weekend. So seriously what is wrong about dreaming about a Vampire named Edward?? Could it be that he's 17 and fictitious..........ummm no!

Something to look forward too.....

Summit’s ‘Twilight’ Is No. 1 Film With $70.6 Million

“Twilight,” a teen-vampire love story, beat out releases from Hollywood studios to become the top film at U.S. and Canadian theaters this weekend with an estimated $70.6 million in ticket sales, the second-highest ever for an independent film.

Summit said yesterday it will begin production on a second film, which will be called “New Moon,” the same title as the Meyer book it’s based upon. The studio is also interested in the rights for the latest installment, “Breaking Dawn,” published Aug. 2, said Rob Friedman, Summit’s co-chairman and chief executive officer, in an interview last week.

Amazing!! Yes, it happened at 12 midnight..I saw Twilight!! I still have was amazing...if it wasn't sold out I would have stayed for the next showing, seriously. I will make this short and sweet so I don't give anything away but if you have read the book you know what happens but it is amaing to see it on the silver is purly magical!! Robert Pattinson was incredible as Edward Cullen. I was a bit apprehensive when he was cast but now I can see no one else playing that role....he WAS Edward. Kristen Stewart was a wonderful Bella Swan and the chemisty between them was intense and captivating. They did a great job following Stephenie Meyers masterpiece and I was pleasently surprised to see her cameo. Yes once again when the Cullen clan made their first apperance in the movie I screamed but atleast this time I wasn't the only one and it happened several more times throughtout the movie *LOL* I will be going to see it again as soon as I can find tickets and I am now looking forward to New Moon and yes Summit has confirmed that they have started filming...anyone want to go???

sleep deprived or something else??

Today I was out running a couple of errands and stopped by Shopco to pick up the new Disney DVD Wall-E and some cleaning supplies. I was in the store for maybe a minute when Landon put his head down on his hands. In less than a minute I heard something...he was snoring! The boy that never stops was sound asleep in a shopping cart. I snapped a picture and then a frighting thought came to mind...he must be getting sick :(

Fall clean up...

Pretty Leaves
Pretty leaves are falling down,
Green, orange, yellow and brown.
Here comes one colored red,
It landed on my head.
With the weather being so nice on Saturday we could no longer pretend that we didn't see all the leaves in the back yard that needed to be raked up. The boys (Ayden and Landon) both grabbed a rake happy to help their dad make a pile of leaves...I think they had an ulterior motive like jumping in them and making a big mess again :) Jackson grumbled as he was forced to help..he was just fine watching everyone else while he jumped on the trampoline. It was a nice sunny day and before we know it we will be shoveling snow!!

Most of you know I have this little "obsession" with Twilight *the Vampire book series By Stephenie Meyer*. The Movie is in only 6 days and with my fellow Twilight obsession bff's we will get to quench our "thirst" for Edward at a Twilight girls night out.....the highlight of course will be seeing the movie at Midnight who knows I might just stay all night!! *LOL* I have also heard and read rumors that they have started filming the second book!! The soundtrack came out last week and is available on itunes. If you haven't read it yet *seriously* you still have a little time to get bitten :)

Only 40 days till Christmas!!!

First of all I want to thank my sweet sister Chanelle for all her hard work knitting the hats for my project. Chanelle you ROCK!! If you would like to order a custom super cute handmade knit hat for someone you love just go to her blog:

Many of you know that our precious little Landon spent his first Christmas in the NICU at PCMC. It was a very hard Christmas for our little family because our sweet baby boy was so sick and couldn't spend Christmas at home with us. For the past 2 Christmas's I
have enjoyed playing Santa to all the babies in the NICU. I have taken quilts, blankets and knit hats for all the babies who will spend their first Christmas in the NICU just as Landon did so they know they too are loved and that Santa didn't forget them. So here is where you come in...there are 60 NICU beds at PCMC and for the past 2 years everyone of them has been occupied on Christmas Eve by a precious newborn. That is a lot of hats and blankets to be made so I need your help, if you are a quilter, knitter or would like to help in any other way *or know someone who is* your talents are much needed!! There are only 40 days until Christmas and I am feeling the crunch especially with the recent happenings in my family. If you would like to help me please let me know and I will be forever grateful...Merry Christmas!!


Many of you know that my grandma has been in the ICU since last Thursday. It was touch and go for a while and her health continued to deteriorate after many set backs until an emergency surgery Tuesday. This morning I am thankful to report that she is doing much better and looks to be on a road to recovery at least for now. We are very hopeful and look forward to her continuing to improve. We as a family feel so blessed for her great doctors and nurses who have attended to her and will continue for a while to help my grandma's health improve. Thank you for all the prayers and well wishes. I love you grandma!!

It's begining to look a lot like Christmas!!

We had quite a surprise this morning as we were rushing out the door to get the boys to school.....6 inches of snow! We had to head back in and scramble to find winter coats, gloves, hats and snow boots. After brushing off all the snow from my car we headed out, not going very fast because of the blizzard. The boys made it safely to school and on the way home Landon begged to so out in the snow. I bundled him up and he happily went out...for about 10 seconds until he exclaimed "mommy it's cold" and came back in. Jackson is looking forward to his snowboarding lessons this year and Ayden want's to go sledding and have hot chocolate..yummy! Just a quick early is to early to put up my Christmas decorations....with the beautiful snow I am feeling the Christmas spirit! *LOL*

You CAN Make History...Tuesday, November 4th

In need of some "comfort food"

With the week before Halloween being so hectic with all the boys projects and the weekend being stormy we were in definite need of some good old fashioned comfort food. Saturday I made Chicken Noodle Soup and Bread was so yummy and just what we need after all the Halloween Candy. Sunday I made Beef Stroganoff and Apple Crisp from apples grown on my neighbors tree in my backyard....both were so great. It was nice to get back in the kitchen and sit down as a back to mac & cheese and pb&j :)

Our "Spook"tacular Halloween

After carving pumpkins, dressing up, trunk or treating and trick or treating (in the rain) we had a great Halloween. Jackson and Ayden carved their pumpkins all by themselves this year and both did a great job. Ayden did a scary pumpkin and Jackson a spider..they turned out so cute! We had a neighborhood "Trunk or Treat" complete with chili, soups and was so yummy. Despite being a darling lion at school Ayden opted to be Darth Vader, Jackson and Landon were still LEGO'S, Ryan was Tigger (thanks honey) and I was Eeyore. It was so much fun and all the little kids loved Tigger, so cute! The boys had a great time trick or treating despite the drizzle and we stopped by a Haunted House at our neighbors the Van Leeuwens...thanks David for scaring the #$%* out of Ayden. We stopped by our friends the Heugly's and ate some yummy snacks, Thanks :) Landon zonked out at 8 and the boys got down to the serious business of sorting their loot. Amongst the mountain of candy we spotted a candy cane and Jackson exclaimed "who gives out candy canes on Halloween, how old is that??" we all laughed. We even found 2 suspect "Chinese" candies and Ayden said "good thing we found them before Landon ate it and died!" *LOL* We have so much candy that I swear it multiplies every time I see it!! We had a great Halloween and missed all those we didn't spook this year. We look forward to next Halloween in 362 days...what will we be???
