We had a very nice Thanksgiving. We went to my parents house yesterday for the "feast" - that's what the kids like to call it. Everything tasted so yummy! I love being pregnant at Thanksgiving because no one can question me about how much I am eating! HAHAHA!! The baby needs it, right? We stayed and played games. Afterward, we stopped by to see Ryan's mom. It was already late, but we stayed until midnight! YIKES!! It was fun chatting with her.

Since yesterday was Thanksgiving, I want to list a few things that I am thankful for. For starters, I am so thankful for my family. My husband is my best friend and I couldn't ask for a better companion. He takes such good care of me and the kids. He is very hard-working. I am glad that I get to spend the eternities with such a wonderful man! I love my children. They make life crazy...I mean, fun! They are each special in their own way. I am especially thankful for this little one growing inside me. I think I finally felt the baby move yesterday! What a blessing it is to be a mother and to be able to carry a life inside of you! I can't wait until the baby starts kicking. I love my parents, my siblings, and allllll my in-laws. They are all so important to me and my life wouldn't be complete with each and every one of them. I am thankful for friends. I have been blessed with many friends over the years. I am thankful for the ones that I have kept in touch with over the years and also for the new friendships that I have made. It's so nice to have friends around.

So, I guess it's on to Christmas. We started decorating today. Makes it nice that we have 2-3 days to decorate. The kids were a little bonkers...probably too excited about all the decorations. I am looking forward to Christmas. I haven't really been thinking too much about it. But, I am looking forward to it, nonetheless. I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving and hope you enjoy the Christmas season with your family and loved ones!

I saw it again!

Ok...I know, I'm a nut! I saw Twilight again last night!'s why: When I originally went, we sat 4 rows from the front...a little toooooo close. So, I went with my SIL "M" to the theater and it was "family day" and all movies were $3!! Can you believe that? So, I got a good seat, paid a cheap price and enjoyed the content of the movie better without all the screaming!! LOL!! Although I was waiting for all the screams to start when Edward (sigh!!) came on the screen. But, nope! It was kind of nice. I did enjoy the whole experience of the midnight showing, but I truly enjoyed it more last night. Thanks M for going with me!

Wow!! What a fun night!! All the girlies came over to my house and we listened to the soundtrack and ate munchies. My sister posted up pictures around the house and made a Twilight banner. It was fun!! Then we all tattooed ourselves (mom included!! pictures to come...) and we were out the door. We got to the theater around 8:30 and we were already pretty far back in the line. What the heck! Plus, the security guards wouldn't let us sit on the ground...LAME!! We got into the theater a little before 10 and the only place that didn't have seats saved was the very front section. That's right, folks, we sat 4 rows from the front. Edward was HUGE!!! hahah!! I really enjoyed the movie. Obviously you can't fit a 500+ book into a 2 hour movie. But, I did like what they did. Oh, and did I mention how HOT all the Cullen boys are?!? Oh my goodness!!! So hot!! I could have me a little Emmett! Jacob wasn't too shabby either. It will be interesting to see him in the next movie since he will be the star.

Anyways...LOVED IT!! I would like to go see it again, when I'm not so close! I enjoyed the night together with the girls. Yes, we did go out to breakfast after so that we could all chat. We weren't really too hungry, but it was still fun. Thanks girlies for a fun night!!

For those that haven't commented yet...what did you think? I hope you had a great time!

It's here!!!

Tonight is the night!! I am super excited! My 2 sisters, mom and 2 sister-in-laws and I are going together! We are having a little party at my house before we go to the BELLA terra to see the midnight showing! I really enjoyed the first book. I'm still working on the 3rd (I know...everyone else is mad at me too!!), so I need to get reading! I am going to be super tired because we are going out to breakfast afterwards. My sister (who is also pregnant) and I decided that we are going to nap in the theater before the movie starts!! Ya that could really happen!! Anyways, I will post about the movie tomorrow! This is such a huge hit! And, according to my poll, a lot of you are seeing the movie tonight as well. Maybe I will see you there!!

Ok...I have two votes for "What's Twilight?" Seriously or are you just pulling my leg? If you seriously have not heard of the books and the upcoming movie, click here. It will not disappoint. I have plenty of people to refer you to if you have any doubts!!

Oops...I guess I should have put an option on my poll for those that are not going to see the movie. Sorry Carina!! :-)

Spooky Dinner

I know...I know...I'm really late at posting this. We had major computer problems but now we are all good.

Anyways, we had our 4th annual spooky dinner right before Halloween. We invited my brother and his wife and my cute little nephew. We had bloody worms and eyeballs (spaghetti & meatballs), mummy fingers (breadsticks) and slime (lemonade) for our meal. We froze spiders in our ice cubes (my brother was NOT a fan of that). We had a lot of fun. We read a couple stories afterward and I made a Ghosts in the Graveyard dessert. It was a really fun night.

The first 2 years we did it with just our family. Last year we had Ryan's sister and her family. It's been so much fun and we have enjoyed carrying on the tradition! Thanks family for a really fun night!!!
