Twilight Party!

What a great way to see a movie... Party room, good friends, good food, a yummy "Nothing Bundt Cake", Twilight CD and reserved seating.  I had my good friend Shona and her daughter Taylor (it was Taylor's b-day gift) flying in from Salt lake to see the movie with us, so I knew it better be fun. We all had a great time. It was so nice to be able to enjoy ourselves, and not have to wait in a big long line. I'm glad that I pulled it off..

on the card ........"What if I'm not the good guy... What if I'm the bad guy?"

...all of my Twilight buddies

Here is our reserved seating. Loved it!

Thanks everyone for coming!!

Going private ya'll

I'll tell you the real reason why I'm going private when my blog is actually private...

Also, I was looking through Craigs List today because Celine wants an iPod shuffle for Christmas, and I just can't justify paying full price for that.  She is only 5! Anyway, I have been emailing asking questions to total strangers.  I'm not sure why, but I realized that my email is my whole name and I have just now given it to this total stranger. I kinda got freaked out... then I start analyzing, which I should never do because I can wig myself out real fast. I googled my name, and what do you know.... up popped my blog.  It's that easy.  Now this stranger knows me, my family and everything else.  It really bothered me.  So..... I decided to go PRIVATE!!! Don't worry.. I'll give you some time to email me before I switch over:o)

Please email me your email address so I can now invite you to my " OH SO PRIVATE BLOG". 

You should try googling yourself its kinda creepy.

This was probably one of my favorite trips we have taken, and we didn't even have to go that far. Once again Jeff hooked us up with an amazing stay at a spectacular new resort.  A beautiful property off the coast of Newport Beach in Southern California, The Resort at Pelican Hill sits perched upon 504 acres of sun-drenched hillsides. We stayed in one of the Villas (which was a 4-bedroom villa with more square footage than my house!). The villa overlooked the ocean. It was amazing!  We truly were treated like the rich and famous. Little did they know we are not rich, and not famous... 
The moment we arrived they treated us so well. The kids had a cookie plate with their names on it, and also got a gift bag with their names on it. Included in the bag.. Note pad, pens, bubbles, and sand castle stuff.
Celine and Brynn enjoying their notepads 
I absolutely LOVE him! 
The gift bags kept the girls entertained the entire trip. 

Look at Mya's eye's... She couldn't be happier at this moment.
I was stoked when I saw the organic milk. 
The trip wouldn't have been complete without Ryan strutting his stuff in his wet suit. 
Celine and Brynn relaxing in the hot tub.
We spent an entire day at the pool. We had bungalows right in front of the kiddy pool. 
The big dorks brought laptops. They were pretty excited when they realized that each bungalow had a TV. Say hello to Sportscenter. 
On his phone working.. Oh well, at least I got a vacation out of it. 

The big pool

Whatcha looking for Liv??
Posing for the picture. Celine has it down. I think she was going for the Little Mermaid look.
We had a lot of fun with the Stotts.

I love this sweet face of Mya. 
Livia "What, I don't want to go".
She cried all the way home. 
Lori came with us and babysat. It was so nice of her, and it was nice to go on a date with my cute husband. We went to Javiers for dinner, and had to wait to go to the movies because I was falling asleep at the dinner table (Literally! I fell asleep at the dinner table!!). I don't know what happened but I was extremely tired.  I thought it was a good way to be able to go out the next night too. 

Shopping and eating.

The kids didn't care one bit that it was freezing. All they wanted to do was play in the water. I thought they were absolutely crazy, but they enjoyed themselves.

Last soccer game 08

Mya's last game of the year! I have to say it.. they were playing kids older then they were, and it really showed. They didn't win 1 game.  Good thing they had lots of fun. This year Mya got to play with her friends from school, so she knew everyone on her team. She loved that!

I couldn't even sleep last night just thinking about the election. I was so excited to get up and VOTE. I will be so excited to see what the outcome will be. Now that my kids are old enough it's been really fun to see them get involved and ask questions (Mya especially). She told me that they were getting into politics at school and she knew who she was going to vote for. It is so fun to see her little mind start to turn. The girls felt important today when they wore their "I Voted" sticker.
