Late night at the movies


First of all, loved the movie. I don't care what anyone else says! I went to the movie with low expectations because I did not want to be disappointed. All I can say is I can't wait for the next one!!! I went with a bunch of friends to the 12:01 am showing of the movie. Kris was on over night call and so my kids slept at Veronica's house and then I was planning to just come home from the movie and sleepover as well. Of course, the baby had a different plan. When Veronica and I got home I went to get in bed, but Gabriella was in my spot and she was wide awake. After an hour and a half of trying to get her to stop honking my nose and pulling Mariah's hair I decided I had better take the kids home so they could get some sleep. This would not have been a big deal, but by now it was 4am and it had been snowing all night. I went out and scraped the car and started hauling kids outside. I drove about 20mph all the way home because the roads were really icy. By 4:45 am all the kids were in their beds sleeping soundly. When my alarm went off at 7:00 I was very seriously considering letting the kids skip school. However, I was not sure how to explain the the office that the reason they missed school was because Mom was out partying until 4 am and was too tired to get them ready for school. I think people get arrested for that.

So, would I do it all again just so I could be among the first to see Twilight???

ABSOLUTELY!!!!!

I can just picture sweet little bree pulling Mariahs hair. It's never fun trying to reason with a toddler. I'm taling Conner and some friends to see the movie this saturday for his birthday.

Mal, Sam, & Maddi went to the midnight show. I pooped out but we went to see it last night. LOVED IT!!!!! I want to see it again to take in more. The girls all said it was better the second time. So...there's your excuse to see it again!! Love you!

I am laughing because I did the EXACT same thing. I went with about 15 girls from my neighborhood to see the movie at midnight. We had a blast and I was pleasantly surprised. I didn't think I was going to like Edward, but I totally thought he was HOT. :) It's fun!

I'm not sure what the problem is. I tested Missy's blog and I can leave a comment. I'll talk to her about it. Maybe she blocked just you. :) j/k

What a fun night, who needs sleep anyway!? I was too chicken to go at midnight but I did go see it Saturday morning with Grace and a bunch of girlfriends. I enjoyed the movie and plan on inflicting it on Bob when it comes out on video!

I love when you update your blog. It is so fun to see the goings on around there. I am so envious that you've seen twilight and I haven't. I can't wait. The wigs are adorable and look strangely natural on those two. I am proud of you for painting your room however I would love to see an after picture! So fun. good luck with thanksgiving tomorrow. I know from experience it will be the BEST thanksgiving they have ever had! We we were there! Love you lots.
