Red Capet Twillight Premiere

Okay, first of all, my camera is broke. I don't know what happened but I can't post my Halloween or anything else until I send it back...which requires me going to the post office...my absolute worst chore (if you get a package from me this is a big deal). This could take weeks, months...it just depends on how long I procrastinate. Anyway, I will have nothing new for awhile, which should not be anything new but I hope you all have a Happy Thanksgiving in the meantime.

So I went to the Twillight Premiere with my girlfriends...yes, we did scream along with hundreds of teenage fans and yes, I felt a little nerdy but it was so much fun and I figure I better do some things like this before we leave. And what better premiere to go to than that of my beloved Twillight. I still haven't seen the movie but it was interesting to watch how premieres work.
p.s. I now really want to be famous. I was so tempted to jump the fence and go running in the theater. One girl was actually picked from the crowd to see the premiere for having a Twillight tatoo...which she proudly displayed for all to see (yikes)...another was picked for her awesome vamp outfit. If only I would have known... Anyway, it was a fun night, as if I needed to be more star struck.

Access Hollywood


Jenny Garth who is the wife of Charlie

Stephanie Meyer, who by the way is the cousin of one of our best friends from Portland. I wanted to shout that out to her when she walked by and see if she might invite me in.


Jacob Black


A sobbing Twillight fan who had us in tears explaining how much she loved Twillight. I am not kidding when I thought Rachel Riley might have to recess her from hypervenilating. This is after she got Edward's signature.





Denny from Gray's Anatomy, I love him.


Some wild fans

The dark and possible ghost in the dark

Analysing people's relationships

I lost my first wedding ring
I am shockingly good at the game show Family Feud

Partners in Crime

This was the box from Cole's new chair. It kept them entertained for days.

Of course Ella gave Cole the broken pair.

Ella and Cole really do love each other...I think it is so funny to watch them play together.

Happy Birthday Cole Monster

Cole turned a year on Sept. 27! I honestly think that was the fastest year of my life and it makes me somewhat sad because Cole is such an enjoyable little baby. If all babies came to earth this way I think people would have more children. I still would like to have 4...Brian's count went down to 3?...

Almost 1 year


I can't believe Cole is almost a year old...he is growing like a weed and has changed so much (he came out with jet black hair) I actually got asked the other day if I bleached his hair!?? Only in L.A. would some nut job think I actually bleached my 1 year old's hair.

Summer Loving


Cole is pretty much drawn to whatever is naughty. I honestly am exhausted after a day with him....wires, outlets, blinds, standing on unstable objects, crawling into spaces he can't get out of, toilets...I don't remember Ella being like this. We have roughly 100,000 toys laying around our house at any given moment and Cole consistently goes for whatever is off limits. This particular day Cole took all our toothbrushes while I was cleaning the bathroom and dragged them all over the house. Disgusting

Poor Cole

Lately Cole has been falling asleep in some of the most uncomfortable positions. He keeps himself awake until the last possible second then collapses from sheer exhaustion. Most of the time we go to check on him after he has been sleeping a long time, he will just be playing in his crib not making a peep. He's a pretty content little baby (unless he's hungry).

Manhattan Beach

Ella and Cole love the beach...they have sand on every inch of their little bodies after about 5 minutes or so. Cole is really funny, he just scoots along the sand letting the waves hit him...he loves to try out all the different rocks and shells as he explores.

Oh How We Love Disneyland

Mom and Brittany came out to visit us last week. It was so fun to have them here as always. Brittany got out-shined by Aurora this Disneyland trip. If you can't tell we are on a first name basis with the princesses...if you had a dollar for every minute you spent waiting for the princesses you would be one rich sucker.
