Hi everyone, Taigen isn't right by my side so I don't know if this will go through or not. I still need her to teach me how to put pictures on. I need to take time to do it. It seems life is one constant whirlwind. I feel like I am going more now than ever. I am still teaching pre school on Tuesdays and Thursdays but I only have 8 more weeks of this career. I think I am way excited. 20 years is been enough. I do love the children, but I want to love my grandchildren too. I am ready to be a grandma, hint, hint.

I have been busy with the wedding business too. I have only put on about three this year so far but it seems really busy. They all turned out great and I think the people were very happy. I will try to post the pictures on my Timeless Treasure blog. The watch business has been out of control. I think I have 3-5 people come to my home everyday to buy a watch and I have 2-3 parties a week. I tell you it is fun though and I think it is my easiest job. I get to visit with lots of women and help them try on jewelry. What fun. If you havn't checked out the wathces go to they are all interchangable and so addictive. I tell everyone who buys one, that they are now in the cult. I have tons of them in stock at my house and you can call and come over anytime. 241-6631.

We are all doing pretty well. Scott is still having Chemo treatments every three weeks which last for two weeks and then we have a week off. This has now lasted for 21/2 years. Last Thursday he had to have surgery. It was not related to cancer, but he had a hernia that was really bad. They found it when they first found the cancer but was not too concerned with it. It slowly got pretty bad and so they decided they needed to do surgery before it was an emergency one. They needed to have a controlled surgery so they took him off one of the chemo med (Avastan) for a month because of the bleeding. His platelets are pretty low. He is doing pretty well. Very sore and walks very slow. His body aches tons. I think it was a little weak before and now is trying to adjust to something else going on. We have the week to recover because it is spring break. I am still going strong with Young Women. We are planning girls camp. Can't wait. We have the most awsome Stake Camp Director. She seems to know everything to do and is so excited. She is tons of fun too. Taigen just got back from State Cheer Championships. We won!!! They did so great. They took first is state and best overall, best of show. They are really good. Jace is running track this spring. I think the coaches decided this for him. But he is having fun. I told them to just throw a football when he takes off and he will run faster trying to catch it. Taigen and Jace and Sam and Kyrsten have been such great wedding helpers. I hope they know how much I love them for it. Taig is my best bow tier. Sam and Jace have got the backdrops and ceilings down. I'm not sure Sam knew what he was marrying into. Yeah Ryan and Taryn you are missing out. But, three more years will go fast so get your fingers nibble for bow tying.

I guess I should try to go to bed now. I have plans for this week. I want to paint my kitchen table and try to clean my house. I hope everyone knows how much I love them and appreciate all of your love and support and prayers. We are happy and living to the fullest of every day. You should all do the same. Enjoy what we are given and hold your family dear to you. They are the best thing that Heavenly Father gives us on this earth. What a great thing to know that we get to all be together in the next life.
