It was awesome to see all three in a row......kept me from remembering everything from each movie!! LOL! I felt Rob Pattinson did HIS best Edward in this latest edition of the Twilight series....his first two seemed like he was trying to hard...and this one he was SMILING (and you all know who much I loveeeeeeee that! LOL!) a lot more...and he seemed more natural in the role.... it was an AMAZING movie.... got to see more of ALL the characters and their personalities.... LOVED it...and hoping to go back again this weekend with Hubby and Adam (Nana & Papa.....wanna BABYSIT Brookie???? hehehehehehe!) :):):):):):):):):):):):) Here are me and my friend Jenny at the movies last night! :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)

*tonight I have a date* :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)

...with Edward, Jacob and a girl named Bella....ohhhhhh and a few other characters too! :):):):):):):):):):):)


And to add to the INSANITY....I am GOING to ALL THREE MOVIES tonight!! What???? Do I think I am still 15?!?!?!?! LOL!!! Sooooooooooooooooo I will be working all day today and then going to the movies about 5:30 tonight until about 2AM tomorrow morning!! LOL!! I know....CRAZY!! LOL!! Sooooooooooooo I wanted to let everyone know I won't be around tonight to visit your blogs....and I will be sleeping tomorrow....but I want everyone to know...that I am gonna do my best tomorrow (after I sleep of course! LOL!) to catch up with everyone!! :):):):):):):):):):):):):):)


And it is ALMOST the end of month and it snuck up on me quick! LOL! So keeping in the tradition of my fellow Scrapping the Music DT member Aleida Franklin who tragically lost her life almost two years ago....she strongly encouraged everyone to take photos with their kids every month....for our children don't care if Mama isn't wearing make-up, has a few pounds to lose....or having a bad hair day...they just see Mama...and since us scrappers usually have a habit of being behind the camera...she took the lead and photoed herself with her kids every month, so they would have that when we are gone...with her losing her life so young, I am forever grateful for her push to take photos with my kids...when I am gone, I don't want Brookie and Adam to ever forget these moments with me... :):):):):):):):):):) Thank you Aledia, forever and always for this amazing tradition that I know will continue with my kids!! :):):):):):):):):):):):) Sooooooooooo here we are....PJ's and all....no make-up and all...me and my babies! :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)



And one last thing....{{team Edward}} ... just sayin' :):):):):):):):):):):)
