So glad to see you back over here. Your girls are still as cute as can be.
Your Twilight talk makes me think I really need to watch the movies. I have read the books, but haven't seen the movies yet. Maybe it is time.

You're so cute! Thanks for reading The movie Twilight was good because of the way I saw it.. the circumstances. The movie under normal circumstances is sort of a B movie really. Special effects are horrible, acting is pretty darn hoakie... but it's the Cullen's and it was still a good time. I have much higher hopes for New Moon.

In fact, I'm getting ready to go to a New Moon event tonight with Quilluette story tellers and some of the "D" list cast members in the house. I'm not staying for the movie as it's too late for me and I have to work tomorrow. I'll see it tomorrow night instead. After I see it we're going to a Volturi costume ball. The whole thing may be a flop but don't worry... I'll document it anyway. LOL

I'm so glad I found your TR again!!! I love reading all your updates and seeing the pics. And I've been to at least one of those places you mentioned, Multnomah Falls. Climbed to the top in fact.
I so wish I could take my daughter to all these places you talk about. Maybe one day.

I saw a post of yours regarding the movie on another thread and I agree with pretty much everything you said. I took my DD to see the movie Friday morning. Kept her home from school so we could go together with two of her friends. Hmmmmm, contributing to the delinquency of minors to see a movie...... It was well worth it!!!

Can't wait for more from you.

Hey girl! My kids played Club Penguin for awhile but I'm still mad at Disney for taking down VMK. STUPID STUPID STUPID. That thing rocked.

My kids were CapNCass and Rainingleaf. I never did get the outfit that would enable me to ride on the Journey through Innerspace (AKA the shrinking machine). Man that was a cool place!!

I SO should have gone to Disney for Christmas!

Instead.... we decided to try a "thrill" park and went to Magic Mountain... here's how it went:

out of the 8 "high thrill" roller coasters six of them were closed. There were 5 "moderate" rides and 3 of them were closed. So the park was dead but the people who were there were all in line for the same 4-5 rides and so the lines were long. It was totally lame

Most of the rides were closed because of high winds...which is acceptable... providing it was true. Tatsu was open and I have no idea what makes IT more safe than any of the other rides during high wind times. I just don't trust/believe them at all. ...

The thing that really chapped my hide was that two of the big thrill rides were being rehab'ed. Give me a break! Rehabing over Xmas break? I asked and they said, "well there aren't that many people here." SO WHAT?!! Are you telling me there are more people here on a Tuesday in Late January? Why on EARTH would you rehab during the only two weeks of winter where there ARE people here. I felt like Clark Freaking Griswald.

We should have gone to Disney. The bright side.... tickets were only $29 each. The rides we went on were pretty fun but it was just like being double punished. First no rides open, second the rides that are open have unusually long lines. They should have had every train available operating on the rides that were open but NOOOOOO they just sat there watching us all be miserable in 45 min waits for 4 rides. A-holes.

Not to mention the theme'ing there is just non-existant. We went there not expecting much as we knew better BUT when all the roller coasters are DOWN there's nothing else to notice besides the fact that they didn't even have up any Christmas lights or anything festive to appeal to the eye at all. They were selling their water bottles out of a cardboard BOX.. I kid you not. They were pacing around the rope drop with huge card board boxes with Sharpie pen writing on them... UNREAL. Blech, it was so annoying!

On the bright side, we managed to have a good time despite the setbacks. The trip and our Christmas was wonderful overall. I hope everybody else had a wonderful Christmas, too!

Mel, I've never been to Magic Mountain, and here's why. DH and my DSis are both southern Californians, and they both hate MM. They say the only thing worse than MM in the winter is MM in the summer. No beauty, no shelter, no character, and rough crowds. A quote from my DBil at MM: "I'd say the crowd turned ugly, but I believe they came here that way."
I'm glad your Christmas was great overall. Ours was too. We're planning to do Disney during the February break.

We're big roller coaster people and MM is a world class park BUT... alas...

I'm glad you had a great Xmas, too! Happy New Year and happy upcoming DISNEY as well!
