WICKED UPDATE


For those of you who have been asking me when Wicked tickets go on sale this post is for you. Tickets will go on sale Friday December 12th. There are two ways to buy them. Your best bet is to go to the Capitol Theatre. They go on sale there from 7:00-9:00. I know that is early and you will need to get there to stand in line even earlier. I'm sure people will be camped out the night before. But I promise it is worth it. If you can't do that then you can go online at 10:00 to ArtTix.org or call 355-ARTS. But if you do it these other two ways the tickets don't go on sale until 10:00. This is honestly one of the best plays I have ever seen so it is worth it to get up early to go stand in line. It starts on April 8th and goes through May 3rd of 2009. So go, go, go get your tickets. If anyone has any questions just call me.

TWILIGHT REVIEW


Friday night came. The wait was finally over. We had our tickets and we all had butterflies in our stomachs. Was it as good as the book? No, but what movie ever is. Did I love it? YES I DID!!! I thought they did a great job. I wasn't sure about any of the people playing the characters, but they all pulled it off and did a great job. Especially Edward. Going into the theatre I still was wishing they had picked Zack Efron. Not anymore. They picked the perfect person to play Edward. I will probably see it again and again and then buy it when it comes out. Go see it or call me and I will go see it with you.

AUSTRALIA



I am a huge movie fan. I love movies. If I like a movie I can watch it over and over again. Each year when the holiday season arrives, so do all the good movies. This is one that I have been anticipating as much if not more than Twilight. Can't wait, can't wait, can't wait!!!!!!! Does anyone else look forward to all the good movies that come out during the holidays?

RUN FOR AMBER


There is a woman in our neighborhood who has terminal cancer. She is only 30 years old and has five kids. She has been through so much this last year and has never once complained. She is a wonderful example to me and to many others. I can't even fathom how she keeps her faith through it all. And though she doesn't know it. I truly love and admire her for being so strong and keeping her faith through everything.

Saturday they had a fund raiser to raise money for their family. I ran in the 5k. It was my first. I am not much of a runner. All though I would like to be. It turned out to be a perfect day. The weather could not have been better. And their was an unbelievable turn out. Which goes to show just how wonderful a person Amber is. Her story is truly amazing. It will break your heart but you will be inspired. Her blog is http://amberchase.weebly.com/our-blog.html. If you have a chance you should really go and read her story from the beginning. Thanks Amber for your wonderful example!!!!!!


Me and the pinkest girl there!







And we're...


Off


YEAH!!!! We made it!!!!






Me and my running partner. Thanks for baring with me Krystal!!!

PUMPKIN WALK


Tonight we went with my family to the Pumpkin Walk in Logan. This year we actually made it before they started taking things down. That happened to us last year. Jer and I invited some friends to go with us. But, unbeknownst to us we were a day late and they were taking it all down. If you have never been before you should go. It amazes me every year how creative people can get with pumpkins. And you get a free Pepperidge Farm cookie. You can't beat that!!! Afterwards we got to go eat at Fredricos again. We met my Uncle Brent. He lives in California and we don't get to see him very often. So it was great to see him for a little bit. Here are some pics from the night.

HOGLE ZOO

My sister and I went to the zoo today. It was the boys first time of many I'm sure. We picked a great day to go too. It was UEA, deer hunting, and many people with Friday's off. It was so crowded we had to park almost a mile away from the actual zoo and walk. There were way to many people for my liking. But we had fun anyway. Ashton and Dalton loved it. Their favorite was the black bear and riding on the train. They love trains. They call them choo choo's. It was fun to see them so excited to ride on one. The pictures from the day aren't the greatest. It was a little hectic and my kids don't like to pose for pictures. But here are a few shots anyway.



Also, we finally got our couch a little while back and we are loving it. It only took a little over two months to get here. Our kids think of it as a trampoline and a jungle gym. Here is a little video of Ashton's new trick that he does all day long. The kid is fearless. I see many trips to the emergency room in our future.

A LITTLE HIKING AND BIKING

Saturday we went to one of my favorite places on earth. We went to Porcupine Reservoir. It is so pretty especially right now with the leaves changing. Our goal was to go to Rosy's Mine. But with two, two year olds we didn't quite make it. We mountain biked half of the way and then planned to hike the rest. If you have never been to the mine before you should definitely try to go. It's really cool. There is an old cabin that looks like it is going to cave in at any time. You can carve your name in the wood. And then up from that is this old mine. My Dad and I have been all the way to the end of it before. It's really fun!!! A little cold, wet, and dark. But, fun. Also, in the fall the Kokanee Salmon are spawning and it so cool to see all of them. The Kokanee only have a three to four year life span. They have silvery blue scales but in the fall of their final year they turn bright red. They swim up stream and return to where they were born and then they spawn. A few days later they slowly start to die. It was amazing to see some of the places that they had to get through to get back to where they were born. It's amazing they make it. We had a great day and the weather was perfect. We got to eat at Fredricos Pizza afterward. They have the best pizza. But that's just a given because of the flour the use.


This is Porcupine Resevoir...











Here is Jer taking a rest. He started feeling sick.





Here are some of the Kokanee...































Oh how I love the Fall!!!!

HAVE WE REALLY BEEN MARRIED 11 YEARS????



Yes we have. Holy cow. I don't know why this seems so crazy to me. For those of you who know us, you know our long history together. I fell head over heels in love with Jeremy the first time I saw him. I was 15 and a geeky freshman in High School. He was a gorgeous, popular Junior. He had a locker kiddy corner across the hall from me. I have always been really shy and have never really chased boys much. He was the first and only boy I really ever went after. My Mom was shocked because she had never seen me like this over a boy. I never thought I stood a chance. To this day I still don't know what he sees in me. I have been with him for almost 17 years now (well except for a few breakups, a mission, etc.). We have been through ups, downs, and all arounds. And I am still head over heels in love with him. So thanks Jer for sticking by me through thick and thin. I don't know what I would do without you.

We celebrated by going out to dinner without kids HURRAY!!!! We went to Black Stone in Logan. It is one of my new favorite restaurants. The food was amazing, there was live entertainment, and did I mention no kids. If you haven't ever been there GO THERE!!! It is amazing. Thanks again to Jeremy's parents for watching our kids. We had a great night.
