Twilight Movie

I got an text from a friend (Thanks Erin!) a month ago and it was about the Twilight Movie. The offer was that we could buy tickets to see the movie and we got a "goodie" bag etc. I decided to go for it. Sent the email out and requested 5 tickets. I got a response back that I had 5 tickets for the movie and all the information. I asked a couple of friends and of course they were very excited and wanted to go.
So, Saturday morning we all meet up at my house and headed out. We left around 9 am. We got to the theater in Cool Springs and got our "goodie" bag and stopped by the bathroom and then we to get a seat. When we entered the theater I was not ready for the huge crowed. The theater was almost full. We found seats up front (not my favorite place but oh well). We looked through our "goodie" bag and then the raffle started. Ann's number was called and so we cheered! She got to pick what was left of the pile of Twilight items. She got a hat. Erin and her sister Lauren also had their numbers called they got a shirt and signed photo. We were very excited.
The movie started and it was the wrong color. The crowd cheered and was very excited. They stopped the movie and started it again. The crowd reacted of course but it was much better fixed. The crowd reacted through out the movie more than the movied called for. It was funny. I want to see it again when the crowd will be normal. We had a great time. The movie was good but not as good as the book. They always have to change things to get everything in. I think they did a good job overall. Everyone had a great time traveling to the movie and then on the way home. It was fun to relax and talk and catch up on what was going on in each others lives.

Santa Cookies

I have made these cookies for the last couple of years. They are fun to make and do not require me to bake. I go to a cookie party every December and I make 12 dozen of these Santa Cookies! I have made other cookies but these always seem to be a hit!

Here is what you need to make the Santa Cookies:
  • Nutter Butter Cookies
  • White Chocolate or Bark
  • White Chocolate Chips
  • Red Hots
  • Red Sugar
  • Chocolate Chips (melt to make the eyes)
Nutter Butter cookies can be used to make ghosts and reindeer as well.

The womens group at church is having a Service Auction. We take a quiz when we get to the event and get play money based on your score. What is on the quiz? Everyday things, how much laundry have you done this week and did you fold it? Did you pray this morning? Did you say I love you to someone in your family? Read your scriptures? Make your bed? Everyone then gets the play money. We then bid on Services or goods that we have all donated. I am donating, some of my jam, canned peaches and cookies. It is always fun to see everyone bid and I like to see the talents others have. I learn a lot about other women at church and have a lot of fun talking and socializing.
