Sly Dogs

This is a picture my brother did of Sam a few months ago.  He titled it “Sly Dog.”

This is a picture of my sister-in-law, Rebecca.  She is also a sly dog.

This is what she gave me last weekend when she visited.


This is a picture of my sister-in-law, Becky.  She is just as much of a sly dog.

This is what came in the mail from her today.

New Moon

Sly, tricky, mischievous little puppies.  I’m 110 pages in.  I am not in love with Edward.  I have had nightmares about my high school boyfriend ever since I started reading.  I just don’t know how I feel about all of this.

  1. Ahhh. Sounds like we also need to talk about this. I am not a huge fan of these books, as well. It moves too slowly, Edward and Bella kind of annoy me both individually and together, there are really weird things that go on (did you get to the field yet?), and some of the love stuff is just too cheesy for me. I have always LOVED scary stories and am not a huge fan of romance novels, so this book sometimes doesn’t rub me the right way. Sometimes I read a part, laugh and roll my eyes, and then read it out loud to my husband all dramatized. Hm. let me know what you think.

  2. Mwa ah ah ah! I like how you picked the most ugly picture of me available! I have one of you to post now. 😉

    My ward just had a book review on this one and it was unanimous! Everyone LOVED it. There are some older women who just LIKE it, not LOVE it. But, I think that is because they have completely forgotten what it’s like to feel YOUNG and in love – they just couldn’t relate anymore. I, for one, have NOT forgotten what it’s like to feel young!

    My RS president is a teacher and I’ve heard that teachers often don’t like it as well. Well, she LOVES them. She read book two in one day! and all three in less than 2 weeks. HEE HEE.

    I’m curious what you’ll think when you get to the end of book 3.

  3. Oh yeah, Did Rebecca tell you that she beat me by HOURS. I thought of getting book one for you after seeing that Erik almost did. She thought of the same thing. It’s kinda funny that she and I came up with the same plan! Mwa ah ah ah!

  4. WOW!! I am so proud of you for giving into the peer pressure!! Annelise!! You will like it. Just get lost in it!! I had my dear sweet MIL and she read it so quickly and called me right after teling me that she had stayed in bed all day to finish it!! That is huge for her!!

    I agree with Shelly: the field scene is pretty odd!! 🙂 Try not to look for too many negative things with the book.

    Sorry about the wierd nightmares with the ex boyfriend!! I hate it when you dream of someone that you haven’t thought of for years!! Then you can’t get your mind off of them for days after! So annoying!!

  5. Alright, alright. I give up. You don’t have to love this book. ;-P I think the idea of getting you something sneaky that you were opposed to just on principle was the whole fun behind the gift, anyway. At least now you can say that you’ve read them and really don’t like them, right??? I guess Becky and I are just immature teenagers at heart.

  6. Hah! I don’t think immature teenagers fits as well as “YOUNG AT HEART.” I think that those who don’t “get” it are probably just spinsters at heart. 🙂 HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA 🙂 It IS a NY Times #1 bestseller for SOME reason. Guess it couldn’t be because it’s an interesting story!

  7. Sorry, the immature teenager comment is actually from me. I accidentally left Ryan’s name in the box.
