The Twilight Movie is almost here!

With the Twilight movie about to be released, I thought I would post some pictures of my Breaking Dawn party that my friends and I put on. I love this picture. It is the perfect "twilight" shot.

Since Edward and Bella get married in Breaking Dawn, we decided to throw a wedding reception themed party. It could have not turned out more perfect!

We spent months sewing, shopping, printing shirts etc. We made a little store that you couldn't buy from, but you could win these prizes. We played several different games to win.

My friend Shasta owns a quilt shop so she and her friends made the most amazing gifts. They made darling aprons, purses and throw pillows! And the grand prize, dun, dun, dun, 3 hand made quilts!!! They looked soo great!

Seeing as how I can't sew (thankfully), I did the shopping! I bought some picture frames and typed up some of my favorite quotes from the previous 3 books to put in the frames. I bought some neat vases and Shasta & I also bought some pretty bracelets and watches. Melanie and her friends bought some t-shirts and printed some fun sayings on them.

We even had Bella's truck! How cool is that! My friend Melanie actually drew this Breaking Dawn sign! She is so amazing.

Melanie, myself and Shasta

We had clothing requirements of red, black and white. (We made all the decorations in those colors too) Here I am with 2 of my sisters in law. Julie and Suzi.

We served white cheesecake with red strawberry sauce. We had red punch, and had all kinds of red, white and black candies.
One of the lucky winners. She won 1 of the 3 quilts.
So Melanie is back at it again. Having a CRAZY life and always staying busy is just her. She rented out an entire thearte for the Twilight movie. She even got a PREMIERE! How cool is that! So we'll acutally be able to see it on Nov. 20th! At 7pm! She called a couple of us friends to see if we had people who would be interested in going ... duh! Of course I do! So after I sold 94 tickets to my friends to go, I realize I WON'T EVEN BE ABLE TO GO MYSELF! I'll be out of town! I'll just have to see it later :( and then buy the DVD. I still might have to post some pictures of it, considering the work I went to!

Halloween Party

Every year Brandon and Rachelle throw a great Halloween party. We all dress up and have a great time. This year BJ and Rachelle were touring Europe and so they had Carter and Sandra host it. It turned out so fun. Sandra had her house decorated so cute. I don't have a picture of me and Jeff up close. I was Princess Lea and Jeff was Larry King. He looked great with his mask and suspenders.
Brandon and Rachelle - the goth rockers

Carter and Sandra - Ricky Bobby and his woman!

Tyler and Susie - The 70's cop and the jailbird
Gary and Alese - The pregnant cheerleader and her boyfriend
Mike and Amy - My Name is Earl and Joy

Okay, I loved the weather this year! It was soo nice and warm! No coats, no sweat pants, no nothing but costumes!!! I was trying so hard to get a picture of Molly by herself that I totally missed getting one of Sidney by herself! I didn't even realize that until I went to post these. Sorry Sid! She was a darling candy corn fairy.

Napolean Dynamite
Captian Jack Sparrow

And my sweet baby bee

And uncle Scotty - the sick-o. He dresed up like the guy from the movie Brokeback Mountain. He wore Jessica's pants and her shrit!

Our neighborhood always does trunk or treat. I HATE trunk or treat so we always go to Sam & Whitney's neighborhood to trick or treat. Here they are with some of the cousins and with Grandma Julie.
