So about 2 weeks ago my friend Natalie asked me if I wanted to go to the midnight showing of Twilight. My response..."Are you insane?" That was the last we had talked about it, until yesterday morning when my husband said that he thought that it would be fun for me to go. Again my response was..."Are you insane?" I can't even stay awake past 9pm to watch a movie with my husband. I have fallen asleep every time we have attempted to watch a movie in the past two months. At my presidency meeting late that afternoon, one of our friends mentioned going to the movie and something came over me...I couldn't contain it. I started screaming and yelling and I was so darn excited. So that's how it happened. The rest of the evening was spent in anticipation for this glorious event. I obviously don't get out very often! I had been planning on taking Talon with me but John insisted on me leaving him at home with him. So sweet. Although I was very nervous about leaving Talon...umm....don't think that I've ever left him...I'm glad that he was able to stay home! John said he would make him a bottle if necessary and that they would be just fine.
My expectations of the movie were quite low...but I was pleasantly surprised! I loved it! Edward wasn't quite as I had imagined but most of the characters were exactly like how I had pictured them. I didn't even feel tired at all...amazing! It's been awhile since I have stayed up that late, but John reminded me that I am actually always up that late when I am waking up with our kids all night. Well, when Hailey woke up at 5:45 this morning I was a little tired to say the least. Maybe I can sneak a nap in sometime today? Hmmm...actually I have an eye appointment and it looks like I just added another appointment to the list-Look at the next post to find out what it is!

We were crazy and went to see Twilight also. My mom and 2 sisters and a bunch of ladies. It was good. I thought they were too white and Jasper looked like a freak. But, all in all, not bad

Hey, so it is me Camille from BYU. I love your blog! What BEAUTIFUL children you have! I love the blogging world. I have reconnected with so many old friends! We both have baby Talons!! Got to love them!

I am seeing the Twilight movie tonight! I have very low expectations because Edward looks NOTHING like my EDWARD! It will be a fun girls night out though.

Did you ever teach after graduating? I never did but I have done joy school and I created lesson plans and sold them to websites. That was fun!

I am glad we can stay connected now!

Hi Katrina,

Just wanted to say hello. Hopefully everything with Hailey is fine. Even if she did get the vaccine, it could be chicken pox because vaccines are only about 80% effective. They only work well because of something called "herd immunity."
Either way, I'll be curious to see how it turns out.

I haven't read twilight, so I have not clue, but glad you had fun. I'm comtemplating breaking loose for some alone time . . .we'll see.

Sounds like fun! I'm jealous you got out with ZERO kids. Yay for you!! Yay for John for babysitting (and volunteering to do it, no less!)
