Thank you to everyone who helped make tonight so AWESOME!!! We had 74 door prizes!! Look at that stack up there! Thanks to everyone who donated:

Jenny Limb and Joanna Peterson: a black, white, and red quilt (Jenny provided the fabric and pieced it, Joanna provided the batting and quilted it)
And all the girls here at Colton's Angels!

A few of our movie-goers. There shirts said "Bit me, Edward....Please!"

The theater before the movie. I know it looks like it isn't very full, but TRUST ME! It WAS! The flash went off, but because of the angle and the lights, you can't really see clear to the back in the photo.
Everyone who came got a great gift bag (bracelet, nuts, candy), their ticket, a chance to win prizes, and a $5 concessions gift card.
We had a lot of fun, and the movie was AWESOME! Thanks to everyone who came (especially those who had already seen it twice!).

So what do you all think? Should we do it again in June for Eclipse? We'd love to hear your opinions!!


  1. Glad you had a great event! Congratulations!

  2. Hey I love the blog! And yes, you should definitely do this again for Eclipse. I was unable to come to New Moon and was way disappointed.

    I think what you all are doing is awesome. Colton is such an amazing kid and I'm glad you're doing something to keep his influence going in a way.

    Thanks so much!

  3. The event was awesome! Definitely do it again for Eclipse. I will be there- even if I see it twice again before I come. :) You have taken what was a sad tragedy, and turned it into something that brightens the lives of others. You are honoring Colton well. I love you.
