Long Time No Blog! Warning: Picture Overload!

I know it's been a while and boy have we been busy! Here is just a small taste of what we've been doing.
We moved successfully and thank HEAVENS its done. At least when we move to Utah in January I'll only have a few boxes to pack. It's really not that bad relatively speaking.
I have been busy baking and visiting friends. We attended Aaron's (baby brother) Eagle Court of Honor. I did the whole Twilight midnight showing thing, we've been spending time with family, Thanksgiving came and went, and we've just been trying to have fun!
Erin and I. We went to visit James at the cemetery in early November.
My sweet Grandma Burnham.
Eagle Scout!
So proud!
Abbs and Parker
These are all from us girls venturing out past our bedtimes to stand in line with crazed, hormonal, raging Twilight fans (Yes I think I just described Katie and myself as well) and attended the midnight showing of Twilight. Katie had just read the first two books that week and Gin and Amber took naps to make sure they'd be able to stay awake. Amber... fell asleep anyway. My PERSONAL opinion is that the movie was fantastic.
Twilight hysteria!
Twilight hysteria!
Twilight hysteria!
Twilight hysteria!
Here is how I break it down. Loverface and I talked about the movie and how we both knew it was going to be good but it was going to be impossible to make it as good as the book (I can't think of ANY movie that is as good as the book). I was already going to the movie knowing that it might just be so-so. I was prepared. Also, people complained that it could've been better special effects wise but since it was the first movie in the franchise they couldn't put a whole lot of money into it. Since they have already started filming New Moon, I am expecting the next three to just get better and better. The fact that it grossed 70.5 million in its first weekend is pretty amazing. Huuuuge fan base. Here are some things that impressed me: - Kristen Stewart as Bella. She is amazing. I knew she was going to be great. I loved her dry humor and some of her one liners were awesome. Her awkwardness was perfect. She IS Bella Swan. - The baseball scene was pretty awesome sweet. - Charlie was EXACTLY how I pictured him. - Their cute little house in Forks was EXACTLY how I pictured it. - The part when Edward and Bella are up in the tree and he says.. "It does in my world" is probably the hottest line he had in the whole movie. Also when he says, "Get in the car!" Oooh Oooh Oooh. - The part when they get out of his car at school and he puts his arm around Bella and says "Well if I'm already going to Hell.." He looks HOT and so Edwardish. - The Cullen family was awesome except for Rosalie had a little more junk in the trunk than I thought a perfect girl should have. - James's body. I know I am married but even Mr. can appreciate fine male body engineering. Now on to the things that I was not impressed with: -Edward. I don't know if anyone else thought that he was SO awkward through the whole movie. His facial expression killed me at the part where they are in Science class and when he is sucking James blood out of Bella. I couldn't even handle it. The WHOLE theater burst into laughter. Those were supposed to be intense moments and they could've made them intense without Robert P. having that freaky weird look on his face. Egh. So weird. -And he had no muscles at all. I wasn't expecting Edward to be ripped but come on Robert, work out before you start a movie so you're not pudgy and so you at least have some sort of muscles in your arms. -Edward also DOES NOT HAVE A HAIRY CHEST!!!! The whole part where he shows her that he sparkles in the sun was ruined by that nappy hairy chest. Egh. - There was no hardcore make out scene in his bedroom like there was in the book. The fact that they also put Bella in her gray granny panties made me mad. Edward is supposed to be so against that. She is supposed to be in gray sweats. Hellloooo. BUUUT needless to say, I did love the movie and I cannot wait for the next installment. Last weekend on Friday night we played at the park with the Whites. I woke up the next morning soooo freaking sore! Gymnastics, soccer, football, and tag.... What was I thinking?? Afterwards Jeffrey treated us to Uncle Bear's.
My girls
Loverface. Nuff said.
Love my Jalen Rose.
This was our Thanksgiving. Tons of good food, only like 80 members of my family came, so not quite half but it was good to see the regulars. Volleyball of course, Uno, SkipBo, RAIN RAIN, and tons of LOUD LAUGHTER. What else can you expect from Burnhams?!

After Lunch at Carpenter's, Mr. Superman and I went to Amber and Jeff's and we had another AMAZING dinner. My parents, Justin & Gin, & all the kids made for a fun and loud evening. I ended up bathing Shaycee & Aiden and they were such crack ups.
Love these two babes.
Cute bathtime cousins!
Babies with bellies!

We hope you all had a great Thanksgiving. Love you all!
