Hollywood Changes People
Samantha got home around 10:00 from the American Idol taping. They all had a blast.

She called me around 4:30 (the show taped at 5:00) to tell me that they had placed them in the front row and she thought they may be on camera. That wasn't why she called though. She wanted to warn me that she would be holding an Adam sign and she didn't want me to fall off my chair.

No! I screamed. You can't!

This is what I get for sending her to sin city without me. She left a HUGE Chris fan and came home proudly holding an Adam Lambert t-shirt.

Before she left she told me Adam scared her a little. Nothing like a little Adam mania to change your mind.

When she got home we voted for Chris 20 times.

And I had her write "I will not vote for Adam Lambert 500 times" before I let her go to bed.

OK, I'm only kidding (about the sentences). I think Adam is very talented. I just wouldn't buy his music. Chris is definitely more my speed. I have also got really weary of the judges gushing all over him. Just my two cents.

Tonight's results should be interesting
Sunday night Dave and I were lounging out by the pool hiding from the kids. We have some of our best conversations out there. We sit out there in the dark and the kids can't see us. I think they forget we are out there so they tend to leave us alone for quite a while.

Well, suddenly our chairs start to shake and bounce up and down.

What is going on?

My first thought was that a vampire was messing with us (I have been reading the Twilight books lately and I think my imagination was running away with me). Of course, I didn't say that to my husband.

We had been discussing some things that have come up with our adoption and were saying we really wished God would give us a sign as to what it is we are supposed to do.

Then the chairs start shaking.

We look into the house where all the lights are on and the kids are happily talking like nothing is going on.

Very strange.

God or a vampire???

OK, OK, I know it was God. There really aren't vampires.

But what did it mean?

The next morning I am taking Tyler to school and the news comes on and they start talking about the 4.9 earthquake that hit LA Sunday night.

And then I feel really stupid.

I'm sure God got a big chuckle out of me thinking he was trying to tell us something when all that was happening was a normal occurrence if you live in the LA area.

Or, as my kids said, maybe God was trying to tell us something. He just used the earthquake to do it.

I have no idea. However, one thing I do know is this.

I am not cut out to read books about vampires and werewolves. I am way to much of a chicken and my imagination can run away with me.

Sometimes I feel like I am 10 years old again.

That whole Twilight thing totally creeps me out. Heck, I can't even read Ted Dekker books anymore :)

As for sin city changing your daughter?! LOL - you made me giggle all the way thru the post. And I WOULD have made her write sentences. For school, you know. Cuz I'm mean that way. :)

LOL I won't read the Twilight books. Not gonna happen!

I think it strange that what should be a normal occurance for you didn't even register to either of you. Maybe God is trying to talk to you through the earthquake, lol.

I don't do any scary ANYTHING - movies, books, nothing. I am a total chicken.

So fun to catch up with you -- sorry I've been so MIA. Can't believe you are still waiting for your newest little one - what a crazy few months. I'm glad you are able to blog about it - it is going to be awesome to see what God does.

Funny story about the earthquake-vampire. I think the next time my wife hear something at night, I'll just tell her it's Edward.
