Twilight Cast

As previously mentioned in other blogs, I love the Twilight Book series, and I really want to love the movie, but thus far with the cast, I am not really feeling it. I know that when you read a book and love it, and then they make a movie after it is never the same, but sometimes they do a better job than others. For example, the Lord of the Rings, I think they did a really good job with that movie. I know that these characters would be especially hard to cast as they are all described very well in the books, but still, I think they could have done better! What do you think of the casting? Edward?

Importance of Wearing Sunblock

Poor Dave! Yesterday he went snowmobiling, and forgot to wear sunblock. He did however, remember to wear a hat and sunglasses, now he has some great tan lines to show for it!

One Fabulous Saturday!

Today was awesome, Dave and I went skiing at Deer Valley. I have to give Dave some serious props, it was his second time skiing and he did wonderful, he only fell once. I think today was a huge step in converting him over to skiing. The snow was perfect, a little icy, but other than that, perfect!

Deer Valley was hosting the Visa International World Cup, it was the Ski Cross and Dual Moguls today. It was so fun, the Ski Cross was going on right beneath the ski lift that we spent the majority of the day on. After we finished skiing for the day we hiked up to watch the dual moguls, I have to say that this is one of my favorite events. We just stayed for the trials, so there weren't that many people there which was really cool because we got close and personal with all of the athletes. I thought that this was particularly great because most of the people we saw today are going to end up at the Olympics, and I got to see them ski here at Deer Valley. Dave took some awesome footage, but I don't know how to rotate it, so sorry it is sideways.

A-BAT?

Dave is convinced that this will be our next car, it is the Toyota A-BAT. Technically right now it is just a concept car, so purchasing one really isn't an option, but Dave thinks that we need one. We kind of have a thing for Toyota's, but he doesn't quite have me convinced on this one. I do think that this car grows on you the more you look at it though. The first time Dave showed me it I thought it was just plain ugly, and now I am thinking it is kind of cool looking. It kind of looks like a cross between a truck and an El Camino? One thing I think is awesome about this funky looking car is that it is not only a hybrid, but it also has solar panels in the ceiling to convert solar energy. So what do you think of this funky, futuristic car?

Farewell to our Prophet

I know that President Hinkley passed away last Sunday night, and it has almost been a week, but I have been really busy and I would feel really bad if I didn't post about him. Dave and I were talking about it, and he has been the prophet for our entire adult lives. He is the only prophet that I really remember, I only vaguely remember President Hunter. The point is, even though I never had the opportunity to meet him, I loved our Prophet. I felt like he loved me and cared about me. Every general conference his was one of the talks that I always looked forward to because not only was it always humurous, but it was also always uplifting, and almost always applied to my life at the time. I will miss him, but it is bitter sweet, because I know he is so happy where he is now. I am sure he is thrilled to be with his sweet wife again. Our church will continue on, and will move forward, but President Gordon B. Hinkley was a wonderful man and will be greatly missed.
