Chop Chop

Last week Kira got a little chop chop. Her hair was long, but thin and straggly... my philosophy is to cut it and it will get thicker. So we got a cut and I love it. I forgot to take an "after" picture, but I will.
Before- Long hair
long, but a little ratty! :)
Such a good girl!
having the finished product styled and enjoying a lollypop!
An "After" Pic to follow soon!

New Moon 12:01am

Well last night (early this morning) was the New Moon premiere. Thankfully it actually lived up to all the hype. We all pretty much hated Twilight the first time we saw it, but this one was SO much better and closer to the book. I'm pretty sure we all LOVED our few hours away in our little vampire and werewolf world!
I love these girls and they made it so much fun waiting for the movie for months, watching every interview and trailer, and then watching the movie!!
Only 221 Days Till Eclipse comes out!

New Moon Dinner at Jen B's
Thanks for hosting and for putting so much thought and time into all the details! It was awesome!

We also had Bella's Mushroom Ravioli, Vampire juice, and Werewolf Kibble!
Team Switzerland, she just can't decide!
Team Edward through and through!

The Real Debate in 2009 is not over healthcare!
Team Edward or Team Jacob
You can't see my shirt fully, but I am Team Edward all the way!
I won the button at the trivia contest (thanks to Missy!)

My partner in crime... Missy for Team Edward!
This chart was about 2 hrs before the movie, but Edward did win by a landslide! Yay!
It was such a fun night girls! Thanks for being crazy with me!

Countdown to New Moon

So the Blog got a temporary facelift. Thursday night (well Friday morning) at 12:01AM I am going to see the New Moon Premiere with Jess, Steph, Jen B, Jen M, and Missy. We have had our tickets ordered since the day they went on sale. I know it's crazy, but I really do enjoy the series. The writing is not the most exceptional, but she does grab her readers and once she gets you, you're in! I waited to read the entire series until this summer b/c I needed time when I wasn't working b/c I knew I there was the potential to become obsessed and ignore my work and kids. The summer allowed me to do that! :)
Out of our little clan Missy and Jen B are tied I think for reading the books the most times... something like 4-6 times each. That's a lot of pages... about 2,443 to be exact for the series... multiply that times 4,5, or 6 times and wow! More reading that Eric has done in his entire life! :)
We're getting together Thursday night for a special themed dinner courtesy of Jen B and then watching Twilight and playing the New Moon game, and then wearing our New Moon Team Edward or Jacob tees and going to the premiere!
So fun!!
ok, so no mean comments. You can judge, but just remember... it's not good to do that- even if we deserve it!
More info and pics to come Friday!

Happy 5th Birthday Kaden!

This morning we had Kaden's 5th birthday party! We invited a few friends to ride the train from Colmar to Doylestown and then we walked to Jules' Pizza for a yummy lunch! All the kids were wonderful and we had a really special time. A few shout outs are in order
Kaden's friends- thanks for coming and for bring so great!
Dad- thanks for helping out at Jules
Eric and Linds- Thanks for letting me use your camera! It was a life saver... although the point and shoot tested my patience, we got lots of great pictures! Thanks so much!
Eric- thanks for putting up with another party (only a million more to go)
Jen- We could NOT have done this without your help! Really! Thank you thank you thank you! 12 kids under 8 on a train with 2 adults would not have been pretty! So thank you again!

Kaden we love you so much and hope you had a great bday celebration!
