Twilight Trailer Spoof

I'm just as excited as the next 30 something mom about the upcoming movie, Twilight (Yes, I've read all of the Twilight saga. Yes, my laundry and dishes suffered for it). If you've seen the trailer, you'll love this hilarious spoof. I laughed so hard. Enjoy.

My new obsession

If you know me at all you'll know I have obsessions. Reading is my constant obsession while movies come and go. Here's the movie of the month, North and South. Such a great story from the book by Elizabeth Gaskell. So well done, gorgeous and well written, I'd recommend this to anyone. It's hard for me to believe that such restrained passion existed simply because of decorum. It drives me crazy to watch two people fight against the feelings they have for one another. Then again, my favorite book is Pride and Prejudice. Go watch this then weigh in.

Mom's visit

Mom and dad came to visit for my nephew's farewell. We had a really great visit. The two things we have to do when they come is get pizza at Two Jack's Pizza and bowl. These are our bowling photos. Noah and Maddie Giles got to come with us. Yeah! Thanks for the great visit, Mom.

24th of July children's parade

Yeah, I know, I'm a bit behind. Our summer has been just too fun, I haven't even had time to do much updating. Anywho, In Spanish Fork the 24th of July is our big holiday. Every year there is a children's parade, carnival and activities over the 24th. When I was in the primary presidency, I got to march in the parade with my girls. This year, Eira was sick so I didn't even get to see the parade! But Geoff got some cute photos. The theme was "Children around the world." Our ward tried to dress like children from the countries of Japan, Mexico, the Marshall Islands and Iceland. I had some soroungs from Bali, Indonesia and dressed my girls in those.

Cool to blog

I just have to say quickly just how cool blogging has been for me. I love to be able to connect to relatives who live far away. And, let me just say, I'm blown away by the people who have found my blog as of late! Such a cool perk of blogging to reconnect to people that I've not seen for years! Sunshine and Shellee. Thank you so much for commenting. And all of those others who may stalk this blog, don't hesitate to comment. I think that is what blogging is about, connecting. Kay, I'm done now:)
