10:15 ~ Rendezvous at Starbucks for some caffeine and amazing New Moon cupcakes, thanks to Steph!
10:40 ~ Head to the theater... can you just feel the anticipation building?
10:50 ~ Get in line
10:55 ~ Much to our surprise, we're already allowed to go in the theater!
11:00 - 11:55 ~ Twilight Taboo, complete with 200+ custom made Twilight related Taboo cards and super cute prize bags for the winners.
12:00 - 2:25 ~ AMAZING!!!!!!!!!!!
3:00 - 6:00 ~ 3 VERY short hours of sleep before miss Allie decided she was awake and not interested in going back to sleep! Ah!

Last night, we left the kids with their dads, loaded up all of our supplies, including games, awesome prize packages, Twilight candy for everyone, adorned in our matching handmade shirts, and faces covered in glitter (of course!) Do we sound like teenie boppers to you? Perhaps. Maybe we're worse. I did find it interesting that our group of 15 consisted of all age groups from 20's, 30's, 40's, to 50's!

Was it worth it, you may ask? Well, to quote my Papa, "Is the pope Catholic?"

Yes, my friends, it was worth it (and trust me, very few things are worth giving up my precious sleep for, so I don't say this lightly!) This is one movie that lived up to all the expectations plus MORE! In my opinion, it was 10 x's better than the first one, which is saying a lot, because I loved the first one! It is so true to the book, which is a huge plus. The special effects were amazing! AND, get this, when the vamps are supposed to sparkle, they ACTUALLY do (unlike in Twilight, where you can hardly tell anything is different!)

People of all ages and all levels of dedication to the story (meaning the one of our group who had never read any of the books or even seen a full preview for New Moon and the one of our group who went and re-read New Moon -the whole thing- yesterday) will LOVE this movie. Oh, yeah, and don't worry, I'm not the one who re-read New Moon yesterday.... that would be embarrassing! (I mean, yes, the first time I read it, I read the whole thing in one day, but that was just because I didn't know the story... the other two times I re-read it, I took at least 3 or 4 days to finish...) I sure am glad I'm not one of those fans... (please note: sarcasm galore) At any rate, trust me people, you will NOT be disappointed.

Here are a few pics from the night. Go buy your tickets. now. In fact, maybe we'll see you there tonight! After all, what kind of wife would I be if I didn't go see it again with my hubby? Two times in one day.. ah what a sacrifice! =)

We were told by someone that our shirts were the best ones of the night! Glad mine is still clean for tonight's show!

Twilight Taboo! (I'll be happy to email you the set, if you'd like your own for your movie-viewing experience or twilight party.. just leave a comment with your email)

The winners! Prize bags consisted of kisses from Edward, hugs from Jacob, toothbrushes for when you need "a minute to be human", dazzle dust, Tomato soup Type O Blood, and much more!

Awesome Red Velvet cupcakes by Steph!! All had different New Moon quotes on top with "forks".

The group (not pictured are our moms and mother-in-laws, but yes, they were there)
