So I've been going through my pictures and scrapbooks lately. These are some that I found. I thought you all might enjoy them too. This was just before Shelli left on her mission.

What's new?

I had my MRI last week. It was horrible. They had to give me an IV and I freak with needles. It was a huge one! yuck! It still have the bruises and puncture. My neurologist is in town Mondays & Tuesdays. It's hard to get an appointment because of that. So I go in on March 10. I have been feeling pretty good. Physical therapy has been great. I can walk now with little help! :) It's wonderful. I still get some pain now and then but, nothing like it was. Yay!

I love to read all your blogs! They make me laugh. It is great to "talk" about our lives and catch up this way. Especially with all of us spread across the US. I miss you! Family and friends have become so important to me. Life is nothing without you. I'm so grateful for all the friends we've made being in the Coast Guard. So many great people whom we never would of had the chance to know and love if Reed weren't in the CG. The adventures we have had! So fun! My children have had very interesting lives. They have experienced many different cultures. They got to live those cultures! My family is amazing. Mom is the most courageous and strong person I know! What an example she and Dad have been to all of their children AND grandchildren. Thank you. I love you. My sister's and brother's are awesome. We all have such different lives but we are still family and there is a lot of love between us. I love each one of you and miss you terribly. Thanks for being there for me.
I am so glad we are a forever family!

Whack A Mole!

Do you ever feel like your life is like that game? You try to stand up but some giant hits you on the head with a giant hammer and you fall back down. Well, that's how my life has been.
Ali's leg is healing. She will have a scar about 4 inches long down her leg. But, we got all the staph infection out. She will be on antibiotics for a month. Her stitches come out on the 11th.

I go in next week for more MRI's. I am tired and depressed. So that's all I'm going to say about that.

Ben is 12. He is my baby. He was ordained a Deacon on Sunday. That is a big deal at church. Reed and Conrad were there with him.

Emilie is seriously thinking about a double major. Archeology and Geology. School is a lot better this semester. She has some good roommates. But, really her classes are just better.

Cassia is all about the wedding. We spend most of our time online looking at dresses, flowers, cakes, and all kinds of decorations. I am going out to see her in April so we can actually do some of this stuff in person! It is hard doing it all long distance. Did any of you ever do it like this?
Mom, your the wedding planner, your advice would be appreciated!!! ;)
