Twilight Movie Review

My friend Kendall and I went to see Twilight last night. I heard that it was a low budget movie and the acting wasn't the greatest, so I purposely went expecting nothing. (I usually do this anyway). I actually LOVED it! I thought it was great! I know that it was low budget, you can tell, but I thought they stuck to the book pretty darn well. They couldn't explain everything as well as in the book, obviously. I was very aprehensive about the "Edward" they chose. I really didn't think he looked like my Edward, but as they movie progressed, both Kendall and I were drooling a little. So ladies, just give him a chance. I was euphorically happy the entire movie (just as I was while reading the book). The only bad thing I have to say is that I will have such a hard time waiting for the rest of the movies to come out! I wish that they would film them closer together so we don't have to wait such a long time. I heard that a big producer, like Paramount, declined doing Twilight, so it went to a lower budgeted company. I bet they feel stupid now. I hope they have more money for the next ones!

Happy Halloween!

Alex was Captain Hook this year and Kennedy was supposed to be Tinkerbell, but because of the cold weather, she wore Alex's lion costume instead. She sure was a cute lion though!

Trick or Treating

Trick or Treating was so fun this year. Alex was the pro, teaching Kennedy how it is done. Kennedy would go up to the door with Alex and when Alex got something in his bucket, Kennedy always turned to leave too. She didn't quite understand what we were doing. David and I were laughing because of the way little Kennedy was toddling around, barely going anywhere in her big puffy costume holding onto her bucket, just following her big brother. After a little while she noticed the suckers in her bucket and imediately had to have one before she continued any further. Alex would knock on the door and yell "Trick or Treat!" before anyone came to the door, and if they weren't there within 20 seconds he would say, "I don't think they are home". I think that Alex actually had as much fun answering our door and passing out the candy at our house. He would run to the door yelling "Here we come!" And he would tell the kids "Have a nice day." He is very polite. Then he would come back to the couch and tell me what costumes they were wearing while we were watched Ghost Hunters Live. David rigged up our strobe light, fog machine and he had scary music playing in our entry way. It was a great Halloween!

Halloween Party at School

This was Alex's Halloween party at his school. There were some really great costumes. Mr. Incredible is Alex's best bud Kai. The lady in the penguin costume is Alex's teacher, Mrs. Howard. She is fantastic with the kids. Alex actually LIKES to practice his letters now!!! He didn't want anything to do with that before. Yea for school!
