Dinner and a show!!!!! YES, Staci, I FINALLY SAW TWILIGHT!!!! :):):):):):):):)

Hi all.......

Feeling a little better bout everything I have been struggling with.....its just HARD to be 37 (ugh...I said that ALOUD...LOL) and SOMETIMES still feel like I am in high school..... some people will ALWAYS have CLIQUES....some people will CONTINUE to belittle others and not make them feel welcome....and I just have to realize that I am ABOVE that behavior and KNOW that my folks RAISED me right to treat EVERYONE equal and NICE.....I would never not "include" someone in my circle....and NO ONE is ABOVE or BELOW me....... :):):):):):):):):) So.....for now...I will be strictly STICKING to the gallery only over at SIS.........well, let me repharse that....because, I am on some Design Teams....I will have to post on the Challenge's thread on the message board.....but other than that....I will be just drooling over the wonderful creations in the gallery! :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):) I also want to THANK EACH ONE of U for YOUR ENCOURAGING words from my LAST post....I can NOT THANK U ENOUGH for the SUPPORT! :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)

Ok.....soooooooooooooooooo FINALLY I went and SAW TWILIGHT last night (I know, I know....I am the LAST PERSON in exsistence that has read the books that has....LOL!!!) A lot of people told me that I wouldn't like it....because it didn't follow the book......but I ACTUALLY did like it....I think they followed the book as best as they could without making it a 8 hour movie!! LOL :):):):) I did notice some variations.....but I also noticed that to save time....they just blended some chapters together into one scene.......over all I was pleased.....HOWEVER COMMA....LOL....I did notice that BELLA was ACTUALLY PALER than the CULLENS....LOL LOL LOL....thought that was kinda funny! They looked like they had been to the tanning salon while she was the one hiding in a coffin...LOL :):):):):):):):)

Took Adam and Brian with me....we went to Charleys Subs before the movie....YUMMY!!!!!! Brian and Adam haven't read the books.....but Adam wants too....but I wanted him to see the movie before he decided, just in case he thought it was dumb.... LOL :):):):):):):):):):):):)

I will be back later tonight with the newest Scrapping the Music challenge.....I am ACTUALLY QUITE proud of this.....BECAUSE the owner of the BLOG....let ME chose the SONG this time.....and IT IS one OF MY FAVES! :):):):):):):):):):):):)

She starts to build....I come in the room to capture the moment....and I say to her.....

Me: "Brookie, are you making a building with Brookie's big girl legos?"

Brookie....literally with a SERIOUS look on her face: "No, Mama.....Abum has Legos....these Brookie's blocks!"

Me: " these aren't LEGOS?"

Brookie...AGAIN...completely serious look on her face: "Abum has LEGOS....Brookie has blocks...make building with them!"

And she went on to finish her building!!! LOL :):):):):):):):):):) And U can TELL how TALL this little girl is getting by the size of her "building"! :):):):):):):):):):):):)

In Loving Memory of Our Friend Jimmy Detterline......

Hi all.....

Yesterday, Brian got news that his very good friend Jimmy had passed away. This is an EXTREMELY sad time for our family. We all loved Jimmy to no end. He had the biggest heart, the BEST sense of HUMOR....and he was just an amazing man to our family and to others that knew him.

He bowled with Brian, and last night our friends Mitch and Angela (who were also friends with Jimmy) came over and with a little help from my brother Steve....we were able to get some photos off of a bowling tournament DVD that Brian and Jimmy had been in together.

I remember when I first met Jimmy. He had a smile that lit up a ROOM! He always had a laugh on his lips and a funny story to share!!! Here I was, Brian's "new" girlfriend....and he treated me and Adam like part of the family. He gave Adam his first softball and glove, and would go into the softball fields and practice with him. He WOULD SPOIL Adam too!!! LOL If there was a video game or one of those toy claw machines within 20 feet of Jimmy and Adam.....Jimmy would shove $5.00 at Adam and tell him to go have some FUN! :):):):):)

Here is the information that I found on Jimmy this morning (with the help of Angela and Mitch...thanks guys!) in the local paper.........

"Detterline, Jimmy Ray
age 50 of Buckeye, AZ, left this world at his home on January 6, 2009, following a courageous battle with Congestive Heart Failure, and COPD. Jimmy was born in San Jose, CA, October 11, 1958 to Ray Detterline and the late Sharon Detterline Lincoln. Jimmy loved and was fantastic at all sports. He played baseball, bowled, fished, and hunted. He bowled a perfect 300 game and an 800 series. He got a bull elk on his first outing last year. Jimmy loved all children; he enjoyed teaching and playing sports with them especially all his nieces and nephews. Jimmy leaves behind his spiritual soul mate, Paulette Sisson; his father, Ray Detterline; stepmother, Rose Detterline; three sisters, Becky Ricci Castro of Fremont, CA, Donna James of Concordia, KS, and Dori Stefani of Ben Lomond, CA. He also leaves behind two sons, Christopher and Jonathan, and two daughters, Noel and Tiffany."

We love and MISS you Jimmy.....Rest in Peace...........

I've been sick.....but I got some stuff to share! :):):):)

Hi all.....

Haven't been feeling good AT ALL!!!!! Haven't had a voice for 2 1/2 days....haven't had the energy to visit my blogging friends (sorry....even sitting in front of the computer is tiring for me now....)....but I got some stuff to share!!!!

Aunt Cookie in Illinois sent the kids some gift cards for Christmas and I wanted to share what they got! :):):):) Brookie picked out a Diego camera and Dora twins!!!! Adam got a new video game for his PSP!!!!! Thanks Aunt Cookie! :):):):):):):):)

My friend Ashely has awarded me with.....the "CREATIVE FUNKY FRIEND award!!!!!! Thanks girl!!!!! :):):):):):):):):) YOU HAVE NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO IDEA what that means to me! :):):):):):):):):):):):):):)

My friend Diana has tagged me!!!!!!! Because of me being sick.....I hope she understands that I'm not going to forward my tagging duties forward at this time..... :):):):) BUT....I will list SIX RANDOM FACTS about me! :):):):):):):)

1) I am a NEAT FREAK!!!!!! My nickname is LANA....which is ANAL backwards! :):):):):)
2) I NEED to create!!! I can't go a week without at least MAKING 2 scrap pages! :):):):):):)
3) I don't like COFFEE!!! AT ALL!!! Never have....never will....the smell is just YUCK to me! :):):):)
4) People can't read me accurately!!!! LOL :):):) When I'm sad....they think I'm mad and vice versa!!!! I've been told a MILLION times I should play poker cuz I have the hardest face to read!!!! :):):):):):):):):):)
5) I JUST JUST JUST started reading the "Twilight" books.....just finished #2 last night......I know, I know....a MILLION YEARS behind the rest of the free world!!! LOL :):):):):):):)
6) I am HUGE on giving to may not always be MONEY....but I have taught Adam since he was old enough (and Brookie will learn the same lesson).....just because U don't play with it anymore or U have outgrown that size....doesn't mean that there isn't a kid out there that WOULD LOVE your old stuff! :):):):):):):):):):):):):)

Ok....let's see.....what else???? Oh, yes!!! I want to share a scrap page I made for's challenge to use a LOVE SONG in the title....I chose, "The Greatest Love of All" by Whitney Houston.......I thought this photo from Bern's house that I visit EVERY Christmas season was PERFECT for that title! :):):):):):):):):):):)

Well....I am HOPING to catch up on my blog friends today....sorry I have been absent....THIS COLD is REALLY kicking me in the BUTT! :):):):):):):)

Love to ALL! :):):):):):):)

My journaling:
"This Girl was not pretty.
This Girl was tall & lanky.
This Girl was four-eyed.
This Girl did not make friends easy.
This Girl was self-conscious.
This Girl still knew LOVE.

This Woman is beautiful.
This Woman is tall & just right.
This Woman has amazing eyes.
This Woman is blessed by all the friends she has made.
This Woman has self-confidence.
This Woman still knows LOVE..."
