Well, life is busy and we seem to be doing well as a family. I am deeply saddened by the latest gossip that seems to be spreading around Rexburg. Fortunately, in relation to my father, none of it is true and we can take deep comfort in that. Alan is busy with work and LOVES it! He is always involved in some aspect of management and lately has been assisting with the Six Sigma training.

Aubrey had another appointment at Primary Childrens and she found out that she won't have to wear her night braces anymore if she promises to do her stretches. Of course, the doctor did tell us that the best stretch for her legs is to teach her how to ski. I don't know who was more excited about that...Aubrey and I both started squealing with excitement! Who knew, doctors orders to ski! Every child's dream! We are heading back on the 30th for her Botox injections which will make her stretches far less painful.

As for the boys, they started preschool and get so excited to show me what they made every day. Cameron gave his first talk in church (adorable) and wears his CTR ring non-stop. If you ask him what it says, he'll tell you it's his "pick the right ring". Christian is still obsessed with anything superheroes and has energy like I have never seen! The kid is accident prone because he never stops. He decided to take his scooter outside (against my will) and ride it down the sidewalk. Of course, being January the ice is still ever present and our little man took quite the fall. He thought the huge scrape on his arm and elbow was pretty cool until he saw the blood...then he cried. Now we are back to the huge scrape being pretty cool. Boys!

Other than that, we are grateful for the continuous prayers of all our friends and family.

Hi Melanie,
I just wanted to pop in and say I have been thinking of you a lot lately, and remembering the good times in the past. The more I thought of you, the more I again remembered your beautiful talents, heart and spirit. I guess I just wanted you to know how much I cherish the times we were blessed to have together back in those golden days of yore. It is a blessing to see you now with your own beautiful family and happy in your life. I keep you all in my heart, thoughts and prayers, my friend.

With Love,

Melanie, it's fun to see the photos of your family. It's good to hear that you are as happy as always.
