Last Person on Earth!

Finally, I saw TWILIGHT. Rick actually went with me. I was so excited for him to at last get why I was so involved with these books. And, I have to say.... CHEESE BALL! I really don't get what everybody loved about it. It did have some OK parts, like the baseball scene and any scene where Edward wasn't trying not to eat Bella (I guess that's why every word that came out of his mouth seemed forced???) Bella was a good "Bella" and I loved Jacob! You've come a long way "Shark-Boy"!
Edward played a good Vampire, but where were the teeth once he got mad? I have been a fan of Vampires ever since I can remember (Lost Boys did it to me) and this movie was a let down. The whole time I was thinking, "Rick is gonna be pissed that I dragged his butt to this flick." When in fact, he was enjoying the movie! What!? I know it's because he had no idea of what was coming next. He thought the story line was good, I told him the book is even better and that he should jump on the band wagon and read it. No such luck. He'll wait for the movies and I'll stick with the books!

I could say quite a few more words about the "B" Movie, but my Ace is crying (he must have seen it too).

Some Pics

While in Utah we had the Christmas Party (mentioned earlier). My camera batteries ran out so I didn't get very many pics. So... I stole these of Marie's blog

Cody, my friend Jayla's husb. Way more flexible than myself (and also his wife ^_^)

Here I am getting ready to go down, really hoping no one looks at my butt while doing it!

All the great friends that we miss SOOOOOOOO SOOOOOOOO MUCH!!!!!!! Thanks for coming!

Me: Why don't you just love me and kiss me?

Cade: Well, I do love you......

Me: Then come over here and give me a kiss.

Cade: Well, I love you but I don't want to kiss you.

Me: Why?

Cade: I don't like kissing very much.

Me: I know that isn't true because you always want to play "Kissy Boys" (a game that Cade, Drake and their cousin Nico play. They run around yelling "kissy boys, kissy boys", while trying to kiss any girl they can get their hands on).

Cade: Well I do like to kiss, but just not you.

Me: Cade?!

Cade: Well you are cute, but just not Really Really cute. (he says this while pointing at me and in his ever so comical raspy little voice)

Me: (laughing)

Back to Utah

Just for a visit! We spent the Thanksgiving Holiday back in Eagle Mountain with Kathy and Bob, our beloved neighbors. The kids were so excited to see all of their friends from the neighborhood, as were Rick and myself ;o) We drove up on Tuesday which took us 11 hours! So long! It took us 2 hours to go 30 or so miles. I loath California traffic.

Thanksgiving was awesome. Just a nice day all around. We spent the night before with Rick's cousin Ryan and his wife Jocelyn. We love them and miss them so much! I would have liked to stay longer but there was cooking to be done at Kathy's. I made my infamous Meatballs & Weenies and Dixie Salad. I love Thanksgiving food! And the Turkey that Kathy made was super tasty, along with everything else she whipped up.

On Friday we went back to the Gleason's to hang out for a bit before our 2nd Annual Naughty & Nice Christmas Party. When I told the girls that we were coming, they thought it would be a perfect time to have this party that was supposed to be annual, but then we moved away. It was a great night (to say the least)! The only draw back is that Rick got really sick at the end of it and had to cut his HALO night short because he was feeling pukish. I actually got to go with him to Ryan's because Kathy insisted that I go spend time with my girls (Jayla and Jocy) even though it was already almost midnight. She loves my kids! And me!

I already am crazy missing all of our great friends. You don't find friends like them often. I think I'll hold on to them (all of you on Pinehurst Drive and anyone who was once or is now a Gleason or is related to someone who married a Gleason ^_^) for a while! Love you guys!!!
