I went with friends to see Twilight last night, and guess what? I loved it!!! I love Robert Pattinson, he was such a good Edward. The only part that I just couldn't take was when he first caught Bella's scent. The reaction was just so cheesy, I couldn't take it. We all laughed pretty hard. But then I thought, what if I just smelled something that would make me want to kill somebody. I'd probably hold my hand over my nose too. And then she smelled her hair! That was so funny. I was hysterical. Anyway, I enjoyed the movie quite a bit, and I definitely want to see it again. Plus, I'm excited for the next ones to come out, I just can't get enough! I'm already thinking about rereading the first book now. That's all, loved it! Go see it, just to see for yourself.

My Grandpa Dave, my mother's father, passed away this morning after a very long battle with Emphysema and COPD. I'm really going to miss him, he was such a wonderful man and I am better for knowing him. But I know that he is now free from the pain and suffering of his frail body and probably so much happier to be with his family who has gone before him. It is so wonderful to know that I will see him again, it makes this all so much easier to deal with. I can't imagine what life would be like if I didn't know that. It would be unbearable and incredibly depressing, I am sure. It was hard not living in the same state as any of my Grandparents, but I am so thankful for the times I was able to spend with them and get to know them. Anyway, it's been a very emotional day and now I need to figure out how I'm going to work going to Oregon for the funeral on Friday.
This is a picture of my Grandpa Dave and my Grandma Faye when they were sealed in the temple almost ten years ago.
This is my Grandpa and my Grandma Polly, my maternal Grandmother. She passed away when I was about 5 weeks old of Pneumonia, so I never really knew her. I am looking forward to being able to someday now that my mom and her siblings are all sealed together with their dad and mom. Aren't both of my Grandmas just gorgeous? I'm lucky that I have 3 grandmas.

Isn't this a great picture of Edward/Robert Pattinson? It was in Entertainment Weekly a couple of weeks ago, and I think it makes him look yummy! Except for the stubble, I don't think Edward would have stubble, but since it's a story about Robert Pattinson and not Edward, I guess it's okay. Anyway, I'm so excited to go see this movie! I really hope it lives up to my expectations. Oh, who am I kidding, I'll probably love it no matter what, I am not hard to please. A few of my girlfriends and I have tickets for Tuesday night, the weekends are pretty packed, but we are going to the Megaplex at the Junction in Ogden and they have reserved seats, the best and only way to go for a really popular movie. It's so nice to not have to fight for seats and wait in line and all that. Plus, the weeknights are still pretty open, so it'll be the best time to go. Anyway, enjoy this lovely picture and I hope all of you that want to go see this movie will get to go and have a wonderful time watching it!

Oh man, but I am. I have had a much harder time this time with morning sickness, and I am ready for it to go away. I guess in a way, I'm lucky, I haven't had to throw up yet even once, although there have been a couple of close calls, it's just constant nausea, even after I've eaten. Last time, if I felt sick, all I had to do was eat something and I was fine, but now even if I eat, for the most part I still feel sick. It is awful. But I am blessed to have such a supportive husband. Even if he doesn't always want to, he will give Taylor a bath, or make dinner, or pretty much do anything I ask when I'm not feeling up to doing anything. Now all I have to do is wait out the next couple of weeks and hopefully it will go away and I can enjoy the rest of this pregnancy. Well, sort of. I'm sure I'll get to deal with heart burn and being extremely uncomfortable at the end. Man, am I a complainer, at least I don't have to be pregnant all summer again. That was no picnic.

That's right, for those of you who didn't know already, I'm expecting my 2nd little bundle of joy! We're pretty excited, and hope that everything continues to go well with this pregnancy. I'm 10 weeks and 2 days along today, and got a few pics taken last night at the doctor's office. So I thought I'd post them. It was fun watching this little person on the screen last night. He/She kept doing a little wiggle dance, and there was a moment you could actually see the face. My doctor confirmed that it was, indeed, the face. So cute!

We had some fun family pictures done a couple of weeks ago, and here are a couple. I really wish I had some of just Taylor, but he would not cooperate. I blame it on myself, we haven't really taken him very often to get his picture taken, so he just considers it a total nuisance. But I really do like these pictures, aside from the fact that my belly is just so obviously sticking out. It's never really gone away since I had Taylor, and I did not wear a very flattering shirt. So, here are a few of my favorites.
