Twilight - no men allowed

We had a girls night out and went and saw "THE" movie. My two daughters, my sister and my daughter-in-law, went with me, and we saw "TWILIGHT." Guess what? I loved it. Sure, it's hard not to laugh at some of the effects (running, jumping, etc...) but I decided before I went that I was just going to go and be entertained and not expect too much. It worked. I really enjoyed it. Edward grew on me. Bella and Edward had great chemistry. The scenery is amazing. One thing . . . I miss vampire teeth. I really do. I wanted them to have the teeth. I guess I'm old school vampire. Carlisle's hair is a whole other discussion.

Fun at Book Signings

Last Friday, November 28th, I was blessed to share a table at Seagull Book and Tape with three of my favorite women in the world at an autograph signing in Orem, Utah.
From left to right: Jennie Hansen, a fan (whose name I failed to find out - she was there going ga-ga over Betsy), Betsy Brannon Green, Me, and Nancy Campbell Allen.
Even though we didn't sell tons of books, we made up for it in fun. It was a feast for me to be with these women and I would invite anyone who hasn't read their books to give them a try. You will thank me, over and over and over!

Halloween Costumes - Too Fun!

This week has been so fun with all the Halloween festivities
and costumes and parties. Here are some pictures to share some of the fun we've had.

My daughter Kendyl and her boyfriend Cam went to two parties. First they went as Sandy and Danny from Grease. Then they went as Wonder Woman and Edward Cullen.

My daughter Andrea and her friends, Alyssa and Marcel dressed up like "Sprockets" from SNL. Andrea is the one on the far right. If you've never heard of them -- don't ask. Und now mine Sprockets ist the time ve dance.

Rachel dressed like a witch, but I think she looks like Elpheba from Wicked. I didn't do her neck because. . . well, this green stuff is disgusting. Cute little witch though, huh? And of course, who stole the show, but Halle, dressing as a princess. She even left her crown on. Halle-lujah!

Halle with Mom and Dad.
And with Grandma.
