So it is finally here the movie being talked about by 14 year old girls everywhere- ok who are we getting the movie being talked about by middle aged housewives everywhere.  Friday is the big day and of course I have my ticket( and have for about 2 months) Man when you put it like that it does seem a bit obsessive .  But that is neither here nor there what really matters is i actually already saw the movie... Yes you heard that correct- I was a little surprised my self when I found out that I had won thickets to the sneek preview but there you have it.  Now I do not want to ruin it for those who have yet to see it but I did enjoy it.  I feel I had quite low expectations going in because a book turn movie has always left me feeling a bit underwhelmed ( I hope that is a word)- but this I thought was put together well.  I am glad I got seeing it and critiquing it out of the was and now I can just hopefully enjoy Friday with all the other crazed twilight moms out there( you know who you are!!!)

My poor kids have had to endure many photo shoots and not been too happy about it but I feel the ends justified the means in this case- man those kids are cute!!!!

Before this crazy snow fell we were able to go up the canyon and enjoy the colors!!!! I love fall.

Sleepy Hollow, sort of

Last week we went to the outdoor theater and saw a concert of Sleepy Hollow. It was great with a spooky hayride, time period games yummy pumkin pie, hot chocolate and of course a headless horseman!

Our very own Bryant Park.

So before school started Isabelle was extremely excited about her new clothes , so of course we had to have a fashion show. Grandma and papa so willing provided her with the areana and all the attention she could get. I must say it was hard to keep her still -she was rocking the runway to her favorite tunes, so the pictures are a bit blury.

I was curious

So I asked her the other day... 

me: "Isabelle what do you dream about?"
isabelle: "Troy"
(of course I was a little taken back so I asked further)
me: "What exactly do you mean by Troy?" ( to clarify "troy" is the High school musical heartthrob)
Isabelle: " I wish that I was Gabriella so I could be in love with Troy".
Me: oh.

And now I know!

Zoo Day!

Yes it was about one hundred degrees outside and yes it smelled funny most of the time but oh what fun we had at the zoo. When I asked Isabelle what her favorite animal was we were going to see she said : a princess giraffe. And then gave me a look like duh mom. Oh yes of course silly me. Sadly to say all the royal animals were out for the day but we did meet some other more common ones! I am still playing around with the idea of making up a flyer with our family info on it so every time a complete stranger feels the need to stop us and ask the "twin questions" I will have them all typed up and ready and can just be on my way. Although Isabelle is getting really good though at informing people all about the boys.

catching some zzz's

How does your garden grow?

We did finally get our garden planted and are now keeping our fingers crossed that something will grow. Unfortunately the babies were quite upset when I was doing the actual planting so Isabelle and I very quickly put the seeds in. The bright side of that -everything got in really fast, the bad thing- I am really not sure what is planted where. So it will be fun to see if and what comes up where

Party Week

I have now finally recovered from our week full of parties.  On the 3rd we did indeed take Isabelle to the mall and she got to build a new bear friend which she named "Bella".  Then we decided to celebrate cinco de mayo by hosting a block party.  It was really fun to eat and hang out with our friends and neighbors.  I called our friends the Carvers in New York to get Cim's yummy recipe for carne asada tacos and we had jordan bbq up some steak.  There was lots of good food and the kids ended the evening with lots of candy from the pinata. 

On Tuesday we took Isabelle and her friends to kangaroo zoo so they could jump 
their little hearts out.We came back to the house for none other then pink
cupcakes with sprinkles! Isabelle is now officially 4.
But the fun did not stop there- wednesday we took our traditional birthday trip to Chuck E Cheese's.  Isabelle had a great time playing with her cousins and opening all her super birthday gifts. ( man this girl is lovin' life)

I love the Amish!!

I was finally given the starter I have been coveting to Amish friendship bread, and it was just as good as I remember it. You know the one that sits on your counter fermenting all week and then you add some milk and flour and a whole bunch of sugar.  Sounds repulsive but it is sooo yummy and now if I want we can have it every 10 days.  I am thinking of mixing it up and maybe adding bananas one time  or zuccini maybe even chocolate but who knows the possibilities are endless- I'll let you know how the experimenting turns out.  YUm Yum.

I'm not 4 yet!!!

Yes the 3rd of May is the actual date of Isabelle's birth but per her request she is not officially 4 until she has a party and blows out the candles.  But we did get all dressed up and go to the mall because she is still the birthday girl.

All Aboard

So I did it.  I jumped on board the blog wagon express and I'm not looking back. So now that I've got you excited( all 3 of you who will read my posts) I must leave and attend to more pressing matters...diapers, dishes, and of course dinner-which we can now always refer to as the three D's at 4 o'clock.  My what an exciting and truly crazy life I lead.
