Twilight the movie comes out on 12.12.08. Don't get me wrong, I am going to see it...but I already know that I am going to be disappointed. I am pretty fine with Bella being played by Kristen Stewart...but I am not so sure about Edward. I knew fully well that he is supposed to be a 17 year old, but since he has lived for many years beyond that in the story and just doesn't age, I still pictured him like...like a Christian Bale type (on a side note...can't wait to see Dark Knight this weekend!)...not really a high school looking kid. Oh well, I still have my memories. I know Lacey and I are on board for opening night...if anyone else in the Clarkston valley wants to party with us, let us know (sisters - if we really like it let's see it again at Christmas!). If you haven't read the book yet, just do it already and stop fighting it. You have less than 5 months..and I promise you can finish it in a day...two if you are really busy.

Kelsi slept through the end of sacrament, so she wasn't in the mood to look at the camera for our family picture.
I think I have converted the Calderwood family to the game of croquet. Look what I brought to the family! Jalyn won this round, even though in John's own words, "I lost even though I am the best player here". haha!
Nice swing, honey.
John cuddling with his newest niece.
Kelsi took to Jalyn right away (not surprising). Jalyn has a way about her that people are just drawn to her. Kelsi LOVED her.
Thanks for sharing this wonderful day with us, Patterson family!

Later that night, we had some friends over. This is Katelyn and Kelsi hanging out under the jungle gym.
We played a few games outside.
which included my favorite...croquet
Grant and Lucky became friends
So did Chloe and Katers
I love this picture. Katelyn had the best time out of all of us.
We watched fireworks from our patio and Leslie brought "poppettes" or "poppers" or something like that for the kids (ok, all of us) to throw around.
Lucky didn't like the fireworks too much, so he had to crawl in John's lap.
Thanks for a fun night Pond and Evans family! We hope everyone enjoyed their night as well.

Kelsi has never really needed to be swaddled. I always did it when she was a little teeny tiny thing, but never very tight, and she would always get her arms out and sleep really well. She goes to sleep with her "binky" and of course it falls out of her mouth once she goes to sleep. It is a MUST to go to sleep. So, my dilema is this: For the last month or two, Kelsi takes the binky out of her mouth and plays with it, turns it around and bites on it, uses it as a teether and throws it (you would think she could drop-kick it with how far we find it from her). In order for her to go to sleep (naps and bedtime), I have found the only thing I can do is swaddle her arms down so she can't pull it out. It works like a dream. What is my problem, then? Well, it's 100 degrees outside, so I have to make sure it is pretty cool in my house so that I can wrap her, she is growing so big that I currently only have about 2 blankets that even work as a swaddle blanket . I know that in a few months she can just crawl and get her binky in her crib or at least figure out how to put it back in her own mouth correctly and this won't be so a big problem. Anyway, I am open to suggestions, even though I don't think there are any other alternatives (don't think that I haven't thought of taping it to her mouth - I wouldn't ever do it though). If I don't pin her arms down, she will never fall asleep since she will pull out her binky. (sigh). And what am I going to do whenever I go down to LA to visit my parents who don't have air conditioning? I can't wrap the poor kid then!!! HA! I was just thinking that I am glad that this is the biggest of my problems with little Kelsi. She is such a good girl. JUST LOOK AT HER IN THAT PICTURE. AWWWW.
