FHE at the Patch

For family home evening last week we went to the pumpkin patch to pick out our pumpkin to carve into a scary jack-o-lantern.

Excited to be going!

We had a nice time. We didn't stay for too long though, because we got there late and it was getting too dark.

Taking goofy pictures.

The kids enjoyed the small hay bale maze. They also have a couple corn mazes, but there just wasn't enough light to go through those this time.

Searching for the right pumpkin.

Finding the perfect pumpkin.

Then it was time for our treat. Ice cream sundaes at Baskin Robbins!

eBay and Edward

***Credit for this post goes to the bloggers on Robert Pattinson Life.***

Check out their blog, it's great for all things RPattz. I get a lot of my Twilight news from there.

I thought this post from their blog was hilarious as is, so I just copied and pasted it. It had me rolling on the floor, when I read it....

Have you ever rolled out of bed and gone "Gosh, I wish Edward Cullen was standing in my corner watching me sleep."?

Or gone out to your garage and thought to yourself, "What I wouldn't give to have Edward Cullen standing in front of my car as if he's dismembered the engine so I can't leave."?

Well, wish no longer, for your dreams can come true.

Meet Cardboard Cut-out Edward Cullen:

Buy Him Now Here

Hmmm, I wonder how happy Dan would be, if he came home to a life sized replica of Edward in our bedroom? LOL ;p

I need to post the 6th picture from my 6th folder (now technically, this is the first picture from the 7th folder, because there were only 5 pictures in the 6th). So here it is for your viewing pleasure...

This is Dallin two Summers ago, riding on his giraffe scooter in the backyard. Doesn't he look so pleased to be getting his picture taken? lol

Who Are You?

This was fun! My friend Liz found these quizzes. No surprise with my results. LOL

I'm a Bella! I found out through Which Twilight Female Are You? Take the quiz and find out!
Take the Quiz and Share Your Results!

"You are observant, diplomatic and often aim to please. You are unaware of your attractiveness and despite being uncomfortable with any form of attention, people enjoy your company. You can be impatient, stubborn and headstrong, but you are true to your word and mature for your age, often taking care of your family and enjoying a good book over chatting with girlfriends on the phone."

Dan took the quiz as well. I guessed he would be either Edward or Emmett. I was right (of course, I am always right ;p ). It was actually down to those two in his results, but he had one more Emmett answer. So he ended up an Emmett, instead of an Edward. That's okay, Emmett is Bella's favorite brother. Do I know my man or what?!

I'm a Emmett! I found out through Which Twilight Male Are You? Take the quiz and find out!
Take the Quiz and Share Your Results!

"You are strong and playful, with a good sense of humor. If there’s a problem, you’d rather be actively doing something than sitting around coming up with solutions. Despite you’re aggressive and competitive nature though, you’re always there to back up those closest to you."

See who you would be. :D

Funtime at the Zoo

Last week Dan, the kids, and I went to the zoo. It was a fun experience. I was quite pleased with how clean it was. Since some smaller zoos can be not so nice.

Dallin and Sierra enjoyed themselves. We saw a bunch of different animals. And the kids got to pet some goats, llamas, and sheep. They liked that a lot.

Look at that cute llama face

Sierra said she liked the giraffes and monkeys the best. While Dallin liked the zebras and tigers.

Checking out the monkeys

After the zoo, we went to eat at Cheesecake Factory. One of our favorite restaurants. It was delicious, as usual.

Cute Screen Caps

Alice and Jasper. I thought this shot was adorable.

And this one is, ummmm...very nice. *hee hee* ;p

Our Nephew

Dan's nephew Brandon, was diagnosed with cancer a couple months ago. The cancer he was diagnosed with is in his leg. Thankfully the cancer did not reach his bone, which is a great blessing in and of itself. He has now been going through chemotherapy, for the last month or so.

He is at home now, taking it easy and recovering from his last round of chemo. His blood count is low, and until that goes up they have put off any more treatments.

Since Brandon knew he'd be losing his hair, he decided to do something wild with it before it fell out. Look at that cool mohawk!

Brandon is such an amazing person. He is taking this trial with such courage, strength, and faith. I couldn't imagine having to go through something like that, and he has shown bravery beyond his 13 years. We are so proud of him!

Even without hair, he is such a handsome guy :)

All the prayers and good thoughts you could send his way, would be so greatly appreciated. For him and his family. We know that every little bit helps. We know he will get through this. Heavenly Father has great things in store for him.

Even through all the suffering, he still keeps his sense of humor. Love the wig, Brandon! *hee hee*

We love you Brandon!

HD Version

Here is the official HD Version of the Twilight trailer.

It is so fabulous. I really have no words. I'm just alternating between gasps, sighs, and squees, while jumping up and down in my seat.

Oh and did you notice the little nod to Stephenie and the book cover? I loved that! :D

The trailer has over 1 million hits, and it was just released late last night. Wowzers!

I can't wait to see it in the theater on the big screen tonight. I'm going to try to not pass out when I see it, but I better take along a defibulator just to be safe. lol

The glory that is the full length Twilight trailer, is here for your viewing pleasure.

My advice is to play it multiple times to get the full experience (I, personally, passed out the first few viewings). ;p

New Trailer Coming Friday!

The new full length Twilight trailer comes out this Friday in theaters. *Woot woot* And we should be getting it a day early online. So stayed tuned for that.

I'm guessing it will probably play before City of Ember, since that movie is by Summit as well. I'll be getting together with friends for a girls night Friday, and yes we will be seeing that movie. ;D

Also this trailer will be playing on TV as well, so be on the look out.

In the meantime check out these loverly photos from the movie and various magazine articles. Simply yum!

I simply have no words... *faints on the floor*

Alice and Jasper

Even vampires like baseball ;)


Another shot from the EW photoshoot. I prefer this picture to what they used on the cover

Rosalie, Carlisle, and of course Edward, after the accident

The baddies: Victoria, James, and Laurent

Homework Time

Sierra and Dallin doing their homework.

Even princesses need to do homework

Last week was Sierra's first official week to get homework. She loves being a grown up girl.

Such goofballs!
