I would have liked to see more of the Cullen Family. Except Jasper. He sort of creeped me out. I think it was his hair. Oh, and I would have loved to see more of the Volturi (I would explain what they are to non-twilighers, but I think I lost you all a long time ago). Michael Sheen as Aro was wonderful. He was totally my favorite. Oh, and can we talk about the last few lines of the movie? I kind of loved that part. It made me laugh.
Overall, I give it a B+. Mostly because I am a fan....not because it was a great movie or anything like that. But I will definitely be buying it when it comes out on DVD.
So, what did you think of New Moon?

Next up is the dining room. When my mom bought the house in the 80s, there were Greek goddesses and fountains on the walls in here. She quickly covered it up with flowerly wall paper which has since been replaced with paint. I love the woodwork in this room and the built in cabinets. The room on the left is the kitchen, which I also forgot to photograph which is really sad because it is probably the cutest room in the house! You can see a little of the cute checker board floor.
My mom collects cake plates. I love them. She needs to move closer to me so that we can share all of this great stuff!
Here is the den....complete with Pepper the cat! My mom is thinking about painting the woodwork in this room white. What do you think? I think it will look amazing! The paint in this room is a pale greenish yellow.More den. And a glimpse of the pretty back yard.
Oh, and the guest bathroom! Not a very good picture, but you get the idea. And this must be when the doorbell rang and I had to stop taking pictures. So sad. Hopefully one day I'll get her entire house up here because it is seriously so wonderful.

Oh, and of course Wrigley had fun playing in the leaves.

I also spent some time with Erin and her fiance, Mike. We went down to Shoreline Village in Long Beach to snap a few shots. I got some really cute ones...but still need to edit them! But I know Erin really wants to see them...so here is a little sneak peak. More to come!

Here is the husband dressed up with his sister, Erin. He still does that head tilt when he doesn't want his picture taken. Some things never change.
I think this was a Halloween costume. Can you tell I wasn't very good at ballet?
The husband showing off his trophies...not in a Halloween costume. I guess these photos don't match as well, but were probably taken in the same year. Just a few weeks ago the husband's parents brought a huge box of his trophies over to our house.....we will be making a donation to Special Olympics very soon.
I LOVE this photo of the husband. He looks so great in suspenders, don't you think? This was one of his senior year photos.
Here is me, about a year earlier, in my 9th grade photo.
I hope you enjoyed our little trip down memory lane! I'll be back soon with pictures of California!

The husband. Don't you just love his blond hair?
