Happy Thanksgiving . . . for some of us.

Halle got sick on Thanksgiving day, right after dinner. My sister-in-law Jen was holding her and she just suddenly puked. I took her and was walking her into the bathroom and she ralphed again? It was so sad. She threw up a few more times so Russ and i decided to leave early.

I'm going to have to say worst day to get sick EVER!, that kind of sick anyway.

Poor baby girl. At least she went to bed early and woke up feeling just fine and slept a lot today.

She got a bubble bath with daddy today too, She is so cute!


Twilight . . . The Movie

Spoiler Alert

Ok so last night a bunch of girls in my neighborhood and I went to a midnight showing of Twilight. I totally enjoyed myself and liked the movie. Some of the girls I was with were kind of disappointed and I have also read some reviews online of what fans have said. The majority of people are saying they were disappointed and didn't think the movie lived up to the books. All I have to say to that is,

"No Duh!"

I am sorry but it really bothers me that people are thinking they are going to see the exact things they were imaging in their head when they were reading it. Stop taking it so seriously, it didn't really happen, just watch the movie and know that it is just someones interpretation of the book.

Another thing is that these books were written for teenagers and i am sure most of the people who are disappointed are 30 somethings who aren't married or dating anyone and forgot that we were talking about a 16 year old falling in love. Of course it was going to be cheesy, over the top, dramatic and sometimes dumb, that is how you act when you are a teenager "in love."

Sorry I will get off my soap box. I guess I am no better than the people who are ranting about how their first kiss wasn't in her bedroom, or how they are bugged that charlie and Bella went to dinner at the diner?
(yeah get off it people, it's a movie not your fantasy come to life!)


Darker Hair

Ok so when i saw this picture of me . . .

i decided i needed to do something about my hair. I just felt like it was not looking good and ever since i had Halle, it has lost some curliness, anyway i decided to go dark and i like it. It was a much needed change. sorry the picture was from my laptop i am trying to give you fierce!


Lover her!

I just wanted to say how awesome Halle is for being the perfect baby for me. She is such a good sleeper and sleeps in until 10:00 A.M. Which means I can sleep for as long as I want. I put her to bed at 8-8:30 and she sleeps for 14 hours.
I get to bed pretty late because Russ is a night owl and I am such a light sleeper that it is hard for me to go to bed before he does, i usually will just lay there. Oh and for some reason Russ is also a morning person, I don't know how he does it? I need my 8 hours of sleep or else I just don't function. Honestly it blows my mind, how can Russ be up so late and then be singing in the shower the next morning?
Anyway, I am just glad that Halle will sleep for so long. It does mean a shorter nap in the day but oh well. She is just so fun to be with (when she is not tired) that it is ok!

Oh and I have to tell the cutest thing she did the other day. I was making dinner and she was right under my feet, so as I was getting something out of the fridge I gave her the loaf of bread, there were only a couple pieces in the bag. Anyway she did her thing while i cooked and when i turned to see what she was doing, she had gotten the pieces of bread out and put them in a pot that was in a cupboard and put the lid on. It was just so cute how she was making her dinner.



Family Photo's

We had our pics taken by the wonderful Katherin Wallin of Wallin Photography. Halle was not having it that day, not one bit, so she isn't her cute adorable self. Oh well, we tried.


Hoop-La Jewelry

My awesome cousin just informed me that she has finally started a blog to show off her adorable hand-made earrings. They are really cute and very affordable and all hand made! I just had to share this with all of you!



All Hallows Eve

We had a great Halloween weekend.
For my Birthday we went to Fong's (a fabulous Chinese food restaurant in draper). It was so delicious it is totally an undiscovered restaurant that I highly recommend. I got this cute red coat, which I love from my hubby Russ. We decided that Halle is getting to old to take with us out to dinner.
On Halloween we went to my Mom's house and played outside in the leaves with cousins. It was so pretty! And Halle loved it!

That night we went to my parents ward's Halloween party. It was fun to see some old faces and friends.
My mom's costume was awesome . . . Sarah Palin. We wanted my dad to be McCain, but he didn't go for it.
Jared Hess (writer and director of Napolean Dynamite) and his wife Jerusha live in my parents ward and their costumes were amazing. They were Princess Buttercup and Prince Humperdink from the Princess Bride, and their kids were The Dread Pirate Roberts and Inigo Montoya. I am a HUGE fan of both Napolean Dynamite and the Princess Bride so I had to get a picture. Oh and P.S. Jerusha made those costumes! AMAZING!
Oh and she is wearing a wig but he isn't. LOVE IT!
