breaking dawn

i loved it. better than i expected actually. what did yall think??

....and even though the last page very clearly said "the end", im really hoping she surprises us all with another book. or the continued story of bellas daughter and jacob would do.

i have stephanie meyers other book the host, but in the beginning she starts going on about some guy named glowing river or something, and i have just not been able to get into yet. i say that as if a guy named 'glowing river' is just too sci-fi or unrealistic for me.... while for the past month i have suggested to anyone who will listen that they should read this "really good series about vampires". haha.
anyway, i finished this book a few weeks ago:
and it was really interesting. the author believes that we each have a "private logic" we use, and it effects the way we view ourselves, the world around us, why we do things, what choices we make, ect. he says that generally our private logic is formed between the ages of 6 and 7. normally people dont have a lot of memories before the age of 8, so the ones we do have, we probably have them for a specific reason..... the reason being that at the time of that memory our psyche was trying to figure something out, and the you experience you remember answered that question in one way or another. so basically, by looking at those older memories we have, we can figure out why our personal logic is the way it is, and be able to start changing those things that were formed on illogical reasoning.

anyway, i really enjoyed it. im not saying its all fact or that it will be life changing if you read it, but the author has a lot of interesting points and views in it. bj even picked it up and read it for a little while. which is a miracle bc he does NOT read for fun. ever.

fun in the mud

with all of this rain, everything is getting pretty muddy... so naturally, we decided to go outside and have a mud fight. we are pretty scary if you ask me.
