I am thankful for family...and food!!

Okay so i promise these were my pictures from thanksgiving, but since we always do Christmas in Rocky Mount, we decided we would go ahead and let the kids open their presents so my aunts and grandma could watch them. Also these are not pictures of the whole trip, it seemed like anytime anything was going on i didn't have my camera on me. So anyways we went up wednesday and stopped in radford to go to the roanoke mall with abe, ben, and beth. (BETH!!! i just remembered i owe you three dollars! i promise i will get it to you) Then we stayed with my grandma. On Thanksgiving we ate at my grandmas and almost all of my family was there, it was the first time in a long time that we have been together. That nite we (ben, beth, abe, isaac, cindy, me, aunt cappy, and aunt sherry) played apples to apples and catch phrase. Catch phrase is one of my favorite games ever, it totally cracks me up!! it was so much fun spending time with my family, the kids were so cute, i just wish everyone lived closer so we could get together more.

At least i could win the loser award!

So yesterday i went to raleigh and spent the day with sofia before we went to the twilight sneak peek! Her grandmother taught me how to make tortilla soup! my favorite! and then we headed to the movie theater, there was not a line when we got there so we went to one of the near by stores and then went back to check in. It snowed some flurries a couple of times and so we decided to go ahead a line up so that we would be some of the first ones and get to line up inside. So it was about 2:30 and we were the first people in line. but it ended up okay that we were there that early because we just sat around and read and talked. Okay so they were going to have a contest for the best dressed vampire or whatever and i thought for sure that there were going to be a bunch of teenagers and they would be all dressed up, but i really wanted the cd of the soundtrack that they were going to give away and so i decided i would dress up at least a little. so i put on pale makeup, bright red lipstick, and glitter. Then i wore my sun glasses and vampire teeth, still i thought for sure there would be people decked out more than that, and i was wearing the tshirt i made. um, no, i was wrong. i ended up being the only person that really dressed up, everyone else decided that they were just going to wear tshirts!! oh my! i looked ridiculous! sofia at least put her teeth and sunglasses on long enough to take a picture, so here we are waiting in line...

So then about 5:30 or so they started passing out free stuff, we got posters, a bracelet, and cards with the characters on them. But i was still holding out for the cd, knowing i was going to win because i was the only person in costume!! we had a great time talking to the other people in line, i love meeting new peeps to discuss twilight with! and then at about 6:30 they started letting us in to get our seats, and i was the first in line to go!! hooray for waiting for four hours! so then at about 7:15 they did the costume contest and had everyone that dressed up come to the front, so mostly me and everyone with tshirts came up. then i thought they were going to have a judge pick but no...they did it by pointing the person out and having the audience cheer. (terrible idea if you ask me). Sofia and i were both terrified that they were going to ask our age, i seriously considered removing my wedding rings and going with 17!! But they didn't...anyways, so i knew when they decided to do the clapping from the audience i didn't stand a chance, there was a little girl, and who wouldn't cheer for a kid!! and then there was a guy with long hair, not attractive but the long hair made it obvious that he was comparable to Jacob. So the Jacob look a like got the grand prize (because all the girls were screaming for him) of a shirt, apples, and MY cd :( then the little girl took second, and i came in third and got a shirt, hooray). So the movie started at 7:30, and i don't want to say a lot about it because i know everyone hasn't seen it, but call me when you do and i will be more than willing to tell you what i thought.

Double Blog

Okay so i have two things to blog about today, one is my game test, and i am a boggle. even the name seems to fit me. the best things i could get out of this is that i am strange, check! the only thing that did not seem to fit is that i don't follow directions, if i can listen long enough to get them i am totally one that plays by the rules. so anyways here it is...

You Are Boggle

You are an incredibly creative and resourceful person.

You're able to dig deep and think outside the box to get things done.

You are a non linear thinker. You don't like following directions

You draw your inspiration from the strangest places sometimes. You're constantly inspired.

second i wanted to invite anyone that wanted to attend to a showing of road to zarahemla this saturday at 7pm. i have not seen it but i hear it is good. tayna and alice especially, you guys are within driving distance, so i hope you can make it, sorry it is such short notice. it is going to be at fern's house, here is a copy of the invite...

Sneak Peek at Twilight the Movie!!

Okay so Marsha found something in the paper about the movie being shown in Cary on Nov. 18th, which is just a few days earlier then its actual release, but it is free!!! The only catch is you have to stand in line, twice!! Once to actually get the tickets, and then you are not promised a spot, you have to stand in line again to get into the theater!!! But i so don't even care, i love being a nerd and i am totally going to try to go. I am excited about going to see it first and i am excited about dressing up!!! Sofia and i made t-shirts and we are going to put glitter on us so we will sparkle, and i was going to get some red contacts but i don't have a prescription and they are seriously expensive!! so maybe not! all the same i am excited!!! so happy twilighting to everyone!!

I'm Purple?!

So i saw this on a friend's blog and i thought that i would do it too, and i actually ended up the same color, so i wonder if this thing is rigged!!! well here are the results, i am purple, i am not sure if i think this describes me or not, the only thing that i felt fit was that i hold myself to a high standard, i am pretty tough on myself, but the rest...i am not sure, let me know what you think!

You Are a Purple Crayon

Your world is colored in dreamy, divine, and classy colors.

You hold yourself to a sky high standard, and you are always graceful.

People envy, idolize, and copy you without realizing it. You are an icon for those who know you.

And while it is hard to be a perfectionist, rest assured it's paying off!

Your color wheel opposite is yellow. While yellow people may be wise, they lack the manners and class needed to impress you.

Yes, another book

So i just finished reading the book the hunger games, and i really enjoyed it. I didn't like it AS much as twilight, but i don't know that there will be another set of books like those. however this book just recently came out and no one told me that it was only book one!! the book is pretty suspenseful so i am having a hard time with not being able to continue on with the story!! however i would love to know if anyone else has read it, and hope others will read it so that i can analyze the book with them, so let me know if and when you read it!! by the way it is another young adult sci-fi book, oh my i am becoming a sci0fi nerd which is funny because i used to be so anti!! oh well i have not started watching the sci-fi channel yet so i guess i am still okay!
