Ty's gymnastics

Ty had her first gymnastics recital this past Friday. She did so great. Talk about NO FEAR, she has none! They did a floor routine, a balance bean routine, a parallel bars routine, and then just some tricks.
Here she is climbing the rope all the way to the top of the building!
Her and her friend Annie.
Her receiving her "Gold Medal"!
On the balance beam...
And on the parallel bar...
She is amazing! I can't believe how string she is. I am hoping one day we might be at the Olympics! :)

My 10 year reunion

Phew1 I have a lot to catch up on. First my High school reunion happened a few weeks ago. 10 years! YIKES! It was weird to see some of the people and how much they changed, and then other didn't hardly change at all. Here's a photo of a few people I knew back in the day.

This is JD and me getting ready to go. Sorry about the bad pic, I had to have my kids take it and we all know how awesome 10 year olds are at taking pictures.
I wish more had come because there are a lot more I would have liked to see that weren't there, but it was still nice to see all that were there.

It's over

Kind of a bitter sweet ending...I finished Breaking Dawn. I tried not to read it in mearly a day or so, so I made myself space it out to truely enjoy it. Well, I DID enjoy it. I know there are a lot of dissappointed readers, but why? I figure that they are only dissappointed because they had their own ending worked out and if it didn't fit to that, they of course they would be dissappointed.
I did not have a preconceived ending to the saga. I read it and enjoiyed how it played out. I only wished at this point to see a demise of the Volturi, and to see what happens between Jacob and Nessie, and to see how the relationship between the Cullens and Charlie pan out. A lot of break-offs left open, only to hope that Stephenie fills this open holes. I know there is a book coming out from Edwards perspective, but it would be fun to see how the rest plays out.
I am not disappointed in any way with the story. In fact, I truely love it. What a fantastic journey, as a reader, that we went on. WOW! If only...right??? LOL
So, for now I will be content with the end of this story. Next step...the movie. I am a little skeptical, though, with the choice of Edward. I only hope he does the part justice. So, December 12th is the next big day. Did you like the book? Answer the poll and leave a message.

Double post / Breaking Dawn spoiler

So I wanted to double post and make that last on its own post. Now, about Breaking Dawn. I am now more that half way. WOW! I love it! If you are not past page 400, don't read on unless you want spoilers...
I cannot believe that Jacob imprinted on the baby! That's actually kinda creepy. Not because its an infant, but because its part human part vamp. So I just can't wait to finish to see how that pans out. Also, I am glad that Bella is finally a vamp. I can't wait to see what her powers are. I suspect that i will have the book finished within a day or two. I'll post again when I'm finished to give you the full spectrum of my feelings of the book. far so good!!!
How are you liking the book???

Do they make muzzles for children?

Another one of those "Oh no she didn't just say that" moments...
Tonight we were at Harmons (Yes, I know on Sunday, I guess we all have our faults) to get a few things that were going off sale. We chose a checkstand and started to check out. Tylar looked at the checker for a long minute and turned to me and said, "Mom, he's got the chichen pox, BAD!" Now, understand that the checker was probably barely old enough to drive, and he was obviously plagued with teenage acne. I mean really bad acne. I looked at Ty and replied, "No, sis it's not chicken pox, and you need to be quiet."
She barked back, "Then he must have gotten bit by lots of mosquitoes! The poor guy!"
Again, this time in more of a whisper I said, "No Ty. Its not that either. I'll tell you about it in the car."
So she was quiet about it until we get in the car. We had quite the talk about not talking about other people in front of them. That if she has a question or coment about something, then she should wait until we wer away from that person to ask questions about the issue. I explained briefly about acne and then Braydon chimed in..."Mom, is it contagious? 'Cause he touched our stuff. Are we going to get it?" I then explained how acne works and that it is not contagious. Phew! I guess I should start looking more carefully at who we choose to check us out at the stored we go to.

I went

Being slightly obsessive about the Twilight series, as many of you out there are, I went to the midnight release of Breaking Dawn. It was so much fun! I went with my great friend Kristi. I picked her up around 10:45 p.m. and we went to the Lindon WalMart. The line was not too bad, and I'm glad we got there when we did! The line within 10 minutes had nearly doubled in size!! YIKES! Anyway, we stood in the line and visited with other people in the line. They started selling the books just a little after Midnight and we had our books before 12:30! I cam home and started reading it. I got to chapter 7 by around 3:30 a.m. and I decided that it was time to go to bed, since the letters started looking a little like Chinese writing. I had to get up and fix my brother breakfast at 7:00 a.m. and then went back to bed. I slept on and off until around 11:00 a.m.
I am trying to not just sail through it. I want to really enjoy it, and take my time, but I'm ure that the farther I get into it, I'm just going to not put it down!

This is Kristi and me waiting in the line outside. YEAH!!! XOXO
So, if you went to the midnight release, I wanna hear your story...

I told you I would...warning

This is the stake that was sticking in the ground that he slid on. It was the broken part on the left side that he got hurt on.
This was the gash. It is two days old. I measured it, it was just over 3 1/2 inches long. OUCH!

I still think it needed stitches, but oh well. He's doing much better now.
