Where to start??

Warning long post with pictures!!!!!

As you all may remember, I was heading out Friday to go to a Twilight DVD release party.  This is even though I already had my DVD, which thankfully arrived at work at 4:30.  (You are a lucky man Mr UPS driver, I thought I was gonna have to hunt you down!)

With DVD in hand and Mini-E ready to go in my purse.....

We headed home, to get Syd, Kim, Kelsey and Hunter. 

Here we all are before going......

Yes we made Hunter go, Young love will make you do crazy things, like force your boyfriend to a Twilight DVD release party, and him agreeing to go.

Where's Mini-E?

Since it was still early, we went to get something to eat, and since Mini-E does not eat real food, he just watched.

We finally made it to the oh so happening party! (catch any sarcasm there?)

I am sorry, I may be a big Twilight Fan, but this was just wrong!

Edward's hair would never look like that.  I mean it does get a little crazy sometime, but that is just a little over the top.  Bella dear, you look like you are trying to channel Victoria.

Soon after getting there, they started the Twilight trivia contest.

Let me just say the Syd and I rocked the trivia contest!

Oh it feels so good to woop up on some little 12 and 13 year olds.

Now we had about an hour and a half full of nothing.  You can get pretty bored with time on your hands, but with Mini-E around things can get pretty interesting.

He had not hunted in awhile and before I knew it he, had gotten him a grizzly, and a triceratops.

Wolverine started to start something, but Mini-E put him down quickly!

Judo Chop!

Don't start nothing, wont be nothing!!

Mini-E then went and hung out with some of the Superheros.

Him and the Hulk are buds.

He read the directors notebook. 

Watch out for that other Dinosaur!

Here I asked him to pose with my new Twilight book.  I had the paperback, but wanted a hardback to complete my collection.

While Mini-E and I had fun around the store, every one else just chilled.

and played I-Spy.

When 12:00 hit, we were leaving, and I-spied someone I thought I knew.

Low and behold it was my blog buddy Ashley!

We know each other, but have never "met" 

It was so awesome to meet her, and she got to help us explain to the Books-A-Million dude, about how Edward sparkles!

She also got to meet Mini-E!

After that, we went home, and were to tired to watch the movie, but slept well knowing that we had it in our hands to watch whenever we wanted.    So the next day Kim and I watched it while the girls were at softball practice.  Then I watched it again yesterday, and I may watch it again tonight.

Oh and because if I don't post this picture, Jessie will have a duck fit, here is Mini-E driving her car.  :)

He does like to drive fast.  Just look at the scenery zooming by!
