Just had to share!

My sweet little Mayli! So the other night I was giving Mayli a bath and she says to me "Mama I don't think that I want to get baptized". My brain automatically went in so many directions and I was thinking what the heck Mayli!!! But I calmly said "why not honey?" She said " I don't want to be dunked all the way under the water, do you think they will let me wear my floaties?" Whew! Then I went on to explain to her how important it is for her to be baptized and that she would be fine, I think I will try to get her into swimming lessons asap!!!

Just FYI

Hey everyone! Well we did it, we have moved to Utah and AJ started his orientation today. It still hasn't quite sunk in yet but I really like our new little apartment and it is fun living so close to Natalie and Amy. Also I can't believe that the stinking Harry Potter movie is bumped to next year, what a bummer! The only thing that even makes this ok is that now the Twilight movie is bumped up! It will now come out on November 21st (the day Harry Potter was suppose to). I have mixed emotions about this because my sisters and I were going to wait until we were together at Christmas to see it but I don't know if we will make it that long! I will post some pictures of our new place when we get everything settled.

Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince Movie!

I Love Harry Potter! The next movie is coming out Thanksgiving weekend and I am so excited. I read all the Harry Potter Books before I read Twilight and it reminded me how much I love to read and how much fun it is, I am forever greatful for these books. Anyway click on the link below to see the teaser trailer!

And I'm done!

I finished Breaking Dawn this afternoon at about 5:30! I LOVED it and my family is so glad that I am done reading it so I can get back to being a wife and mother again!

Breaking Dawn is Finally Here!!!

My sisters Jessica, Catherine, Megan and I have all read the Twilight series by Stephenie Meyer and on August 1st there was a party at Borders to celebrate the release of the last book Breaking Dawn! So Catherine and I made us all t-shirts that said "My heart (with a heart) belongs to AJ but my neck belongs to Edward". Edward is the main male character in the books and is also a vampire.
The back of our shirts said "Bite Me" with an apple in the middle! Once again they turned out so cute and we were very proud. (For those of you who haven't read the books Bella the main girl character wants Edward to bite her and make her a vampire too, thats why this is funny!)

When we got to Borders around 10:00 it was total madness, there were so many people there I was amazed! I soon found out that while I think I am a little obsessed with these books I am no where near some of these girls who have them practally memorized! They did a t-shirt contest and it was fun to see all the things people came up with.

It was so funny because after spending 2 hours at Borders then we found out that we would have to wait in line after the 900 other people who had pre-ordered the book to get it so we went right over to the nearest Walmart and got it! Thanks Jessica and Catherine for going with me and being silly! We missed you Meg!

One last chance before we are starving students again!

AJ and I love to go to the Melting Pot on our Anniversary and since it isn't until October and we will no longer have the money to do that sort of thing we decided to go one more time. (Besides my mom gave us a coupon and offered to watch our girls, what more could we ask for!!!) This is me preparing to take a huge bite of a chocolate covered brownie!
AJ just posing with his chocolate covered strawberry!
We had a really nice time together and had fun enjoying our early anniversary present to ourselves!
