Twilight coma

So my twilight coma lasted from 10 pm tuesday until 12 pm Friday. Daniel didn't appreciate it but I already warned him. He got to rent two movies every night. They were the ones I don't appreciate. Usually guy guy movies. Then he went golfing for 5 hours Friday morning so I don't think I feel guilty for reading. It didn't help that it was Thanksgiving and we had a lot of church stuff to do and lessons to prepare. I was lucky because Eva and Alexander like to play together now. I mostly read at night instead of sleeping and I didn't eat much. I couldn't put them down. Well I could and I did because I obviously have two children but I didn't get much laundry done. I liked it and thats that. Now I understand all the crazyness around it.

If you aren't a fan of the books this post ends here.

I really enjoyed these books. They are the first in a long time that made me want to reread straight away to get the whole perspective. I must say I loved Twilight but then New Moon put me in a foul mood until the end parts. Then I enjoyed eclipse until the end when she loves them both. GAG I don't believe in two loves sorry. But then after Breaking Dawn it all made so much sense and everything clicked. There were no problems with continuity so I loved it. What a fun bunch of books. Oh and I also read the portion of midnight sun on her website. I enjoyed it so much. I don't know why it was leaked. They should have known that when a ruin an authors mood on a book they wont write more and whats the point of half a book.

I was so stressed reading parts of the books because I was sure someone would get killed and die because most authors love that kind of drama. So in the end I was so happy and in a good mood. Yay for this series. Now I want to go back and watch the movie again. I don't think the movie did Edward justice when it came to his lines but it would have been an 18 hour movie otherwise. I liked the actor they chose. Very handsome and the hint of his British Accent helped convince me of his 1918 life. It would have been difficult with a typical modern American accent. Those are my thoughts. Go read it but only if you have time to enjoy it. I would have been so frustrated if I didn't wait for all 4 books to come out. Especially if I would have had to wait after book 2. I think I will wait until the end of all series before reading them. I waited until book 5 was out with Harry Potter and waiting for the last two was frustrating.

This week so far

This past week has been eventful when it comes to the camera. We went to the beach Tuesday morning. Its probably been over a month since we last went so it was great to go. Just Ritidian again. Then it was Thanksgiving on Thursday. We went to the branch turkey bowl. Luckily no one got hurt which apparently is a first for this branch. Alexander played with Teddy and I think the dogs name is grace. Its the branch presidents dog. Alexander loves Teddy. He just follows him around and Teddy actually plays with him and talks to him so I think Alexander really appreciates it.Our branch actually does a thanksgiving lunch. It was weird to me because it was actually on thanksgiving day so you either had a family thanksgiving or went to this. We obviously went because I have never cooked a turkey and I don't want to cook one for just Daniel and I. We were supposed to bring thanksgiving side dishes. We just brought a big bowl of stuffing. There wasn't much there that I would consider traditional thanksgiving food. Oh well I guess thats just Guam . Oh and Alexander likes playing with Eva now. Especially when she is in her stand up toy. He bounces it and laughs so they both just laugh and laugh. Then she gets overwhelmed and starts crying because he gets too rough. But she just stares at him all day. She loves her brother.

This is specifically for the Reeves side of the Family. Did anyone take any pictures of the wedding? If so will anyone be posting any of these pictures. You don't have to post them all. We just want to see some pictures of the ceremony. The Bride. The Groom. The bride and groom together and some of the reception. I personally want to see pictures of decorations and stuff although I have seen one picture of a flower arrangment so far. We haven't seen ANY PICTURES AT ALL AND WOULD REALLY LIKE TO SEE AT LEAST ONE THAT IS SPECIFICALLY FROM THE WEDDING. Ok thanks. (I know this may be hard to believe but that post was from Miriam)


Is it Christmas yet? It does not feel like the Holidays at all over here. I feel like I am sitting still and time has stopped and its annoying. Tomorrow I should be borrowing the twilight books all four of them at once so I can just get it over with and be done by Saturday so I can prepare my lesson.
Oh a random annoyance again from Guam. We paid lots of money to get Eva's passport expedited. They said they would call us as soon as it got in. So I had Daniel call today. It has been 2 weeks they said 3 but passport people need to be called a lot from my previous experiences with them. So they kept saying call back in 5 minutes. Then they asked the date on the receipt. We told them we dropped off the application and paid on the 10th and they wrote the 12th on the receipt and they yelled at us on the phone for about 5 minutes on how they told us 3 weeks like we shouldn't be bothering them. Well I paid for 2 weeks. ANYWAY so then after all the hassle they say "oh its here we found it, but you can't pick it up until tomorrow because today is a drop off the application day and tomorrow is a pick up passports day" so instead of calling us when it actually got there or just telling us its here get it tomorrow, they yell at us and wow its retarded. What irritated me the most was that they had it so it most likely got there before the weekend and they didn't even tell us. We didn't pay more so we could wait the regular waiting time. Sorry I had to vent that.
Is it Thanksgiving and christmas like over there?

Twilight was SOOOO good

Ok I have officially seen Twilight and it was so good! I am already hooked and now I need to figure out how to get the books and when I can read them. I loved it!
I would say Edward with the Eward Jacob thing but I have only seen the movie

what's twilight?

I just thought I would do a brag blog for once. So my friend Line called today and told me twilight was showing tonight at midnight :o1 and asked if I wanted to go and I said YES! We both have never read the books so we will be perfect company for each other. I just thought I would brag and say that I am going to go see it in 5 hours because we are a day ahead of all of you (except Australia but they don't get it tonight) so I hope I understand the movie without reading the books but yay I get to have a girls night and its Twilight which I embarrassingly googled and spelled wrong (twighlight). So there is the first perk with Guam and Movies. YAY I am pretty excited not just because its twilight but because its the first movie past midnight in years and I get to go with Line, girls night. Ok keep being jealous.

Eva's Passport

Yesterday we just finished all the passport stuff for Eva. Now it just needs to come in the mail in a hurry. We paid alot more to get it here faster so I hope that was not in vain. I took a picture of her pictures so I could post them. I think they look great. The photo guys were great. they told me just to bring a white blanket and her car seat and that seemed to work out very well and she

actually sat still (not usually the case with her) Anyway wish us luck on getting the passport by the 1st when they promised it.



Sorry this is random and a vent but the most annoying thing in the world to me is members who sit and complain about how their bishop, mission president or whom ever they are dissing is not doing a good job or that "they were supposed to set it up and didn't and the world is over" Or "this is the way they do it in Utah and its wrong here" or "I have been around a long time and that is wrong". Get over yourselves. I just read a blog of this guy here and OH MAN what a loser. Honestly if you don't think your Bishop or Branch Pres is doing a good job you need to check yourself first. Its a rough calling to hold and it doesn't help when people sit and point and do nothing to help. Anyway I am done. I wouldn't care if it was just one guy in the world by negitivity doesn't help anyone. This ones for you Line! Did you read his blog?
