The girls had their very first snow experience in Durango, CO
It was hard to hold them off until after lunch and touring before getting their hands on the snow.
We toured the Durango Railroad Museum...
Walked around Main Street, had lunch and...
the snowball fights began!  We all laughed very hard and got very cold!
Of course we had to build a snowman...
and go sledding...go mama!
Aunt Michelle gets in on the action
and then a little tandem sledding
It was really cold, but such a fun and beautiful day!

Here we are at Special Person's Day at school.  Each year we can invite special people to come see the classrooms sing and perform, and then our special people get to visit the classrooms.

The "Twilight" Movie Premiere - November 17, 2008
On Monday night, I was fortunate to be able to attend the Red Carpet Premiere event and then attend the official "After Party".  We ended up having the time of our lives schmoozing with the actors, the director and the books' author.  We even saw a couple of stars that I have loved in other shows!  It was a great night!

The "After Party" 
Our first star stop was Taylor Lautner - Jacob Black 
(Bella's friend and future werewolf)
Me, Corrie (who gave Sarah and I her extra tickets), Taylor, Amy, and Sarah.  These girls are all fellow TwilightMoms.  We did get to see Rob Pattinson (Edward Cullen) and Kristen Stewart (Bella), but there were just too many people surrounding them to get close enough to schmooze.  We also chatted with Edi (Laurent - evil vampire) and Justin Chon who is one of the humans.  All of the actors were so gracious, and all were concerned as to whether the fans were happy with the movie.  Even though we hadn't seen it, we are SO happy with it that we were able to give very positive feedback to them.

Solomon Trimble - Sam Uley (Jacob's friend and werewolf pack leader)
Elizabeth Reaser - Esme Cullen (vampire coven mother)
Kellan Lutz - Emmett Cullen (vampire brother)
Rachelle LeFevre - Victoria (evil vampire)
Peter Facinelli - Carlisle Cullen (vampire coven dad)
Ashley Green - Alice Cullen (vampire sister)

Jackson Rathbone - Jasper Cullen (vampire brother)
Stephenie Meyer - Author of the Twilight Series
Catherine Hardwick - Director
Seth Green from "Buffy The Vampire Slayer" and the Austen Powers movies
 (Check out his fangs!)
Daphne Zuniga who is our favorite Princess Vespa from 
"Spaceballs, The Movie"  She was so nice!

          KCAL9/CBS2 news interviewed me and two friends, Sarah and Jenny, from  If you didn't see it, it is a great interview that explains what our community is all about.  It's a high definition clip, so it takes a minute to load. 

I LOVE sunsets.  Sunset/Twilight is my favorite time of day.  I can stand and watch the sunset and breathe deeply and be grateful for the beauty that God has provided for us to enjoy.
