big thumbs down

It was bad, worse than bad, terrible. All I can say is if I had driven myself to the theater I would have left. Did you see it? what did you think?
"Meyer is said to have been involved in the production of 'Twilight,' but her novel was substantially more absorbing than the unintentionally funny and quickly forgettable film," remarks Claudia Puig in her USA Today review.
"Much of what made the relationship between Edward and the smitten Bella Swan work in Meyer's breezy book has been stripped away on screen," says Christy Lemire at The Associated Press, observing that the chemistry between Pattinson and Stewart simmers rather than boils. "The funny, lively banter — the way in which Edward and Bella teased and toyed with one another about their respective immortality and humanity — is pretty much completely gone, and all that's left is a slog of adolescent angst." Luke Y. Thompson asks, "What the hell was that I just watched?"

The secret life of pacifiers

The pacifier, its a love hate relationship around here, why is it that you either have 4 of them or are scrambling to find one? Sara loves her pacifiers, really loves them, she'd go to bed with 3 of them if she could round them all up, they make her happy and easy to quite down in places like church and for that they are my friend but I do hate that we are so reliant on them, I had to buy one at Disneyland once because Sara dropped hers on the floor some where. Its annoying that at night time if we can't find one (and as much as Sara loves her paci she is pretty careless with them and can't remember where she has put them) its a desperate hunt to find one and recently as she is teething she has been chewing on them and they all have holes so the big decision has been to give it up, its been 5 days now and Sara is doing pretty good, she misses it though but is asking for it less. I have a confession though, I'm pretty close to going to Target and getting some more, I miss that little face running around with the pacifier in it, getting rid of the paci means I'm having to admit my baby is growing up and not such a baby anymore, this is made worse by the fact that Sara climbed out of her crib this weekend and so now she needs a big girl bed. So thats it, my baby is not a baby anymore, I love that she is getting bigger and independent but I can't help miss her being my little baby sometimes.

As I can't vote I'm going to post some picks of my girls first time door to door trick or treating, we joined a group of friends in Toluca Lake and had a great time.

This was the group, we began at the Cooke's house with pot luck halloween favourite's, are you tempted to dig into this yummy looking chocolate cake made by Michelle Barty?
