I love the holidays-the crisp, crunchy fall leaves, the smell of cinnamon and freshly baked cookies, the family togetherness, the Christmas cards and reconnecting with old friends and the Spirit of Christ make me so happy. This year has brought a lot of change and I can’t wait to share some new pictures and a little update in our Christmas cards this year. I’ve made my cards in the past but because of a great deal from Shutterfly I am going to use one of their templates this year. I am super excited to choose a cute Christmas card and have Shutterfly take the stress off of me (especially with finals creeping up). Not only am I using them to do my cards this year, I am also creating a scrapbook of our trip to New York. If you’re a blogger and want to check out this deal go here. Check out their awesome cards here.

Today we went to Apple Hill with the Fruits and we couldn't have asked for better weather. We drank some really yummy apple cider, watched the fish jump out of the pond, went on a hayride, watched 'R' ride a pony, picked out pumpkins, had tri-tip sandwiches, picked apples off the trees, had "Denver Dan" (who is actually Apple Al) put delicious apples on our thumbs, and tried some very yummy sour cream apple pie with a crumb topping. Such a fun day, we love the Fruits!

From July 22-24 Jeff and I stayed in Dillon's beach at a beach house with my family. It was a lot of fun and Jeff even braved the chilly water of the ocean. We were celebrating my grandparent's 50th wedding anniversary. My grandparents are such good examples and they truly love and support us.
Jeff and I went to Utah from July 9-12 and stayed with Phill and Jeannine. We had a blast with Isaiah and Chase the whole time (and all the adults too). Jeff's grandparents flew in from Texas and lots more family came too! We went swimming, saw Toy Story 3, ate some good food, went to Salt Lake, celebrated three birthdays and squeezed in a visit to Lehi to see my uncle Jim and his family. We can't wait to see everyone again.

I was in a bad car accident last Saturday where a car rammed into my passenger side at 40 MPH. Our Nissan Sentra is totaled but I am okay. It was scary and intense but I know someone was looking out for me to have walked away from such a bad scene.
- TORN MENISCUS
- WE MOVED!
- Jeff has been super busy with school, and he finishes his last final tomorrow for the semester.
- I have been wearing my welcome out at Kaiser, still trying to adjust medicine for my stomach problems.
- We celebrated my sisters 19th birthday and I am still trying to believe that she is that old.
- We took pictures for Mother's Day...
- We went to a Rivercats game and had some fun in the sun.

• Pain Medicine (it works like magic)
• Blood Banks (GIVE BLOOD, it saves lives-it saved mine)
• A flexible job and caring boss (love my dad)
• Medical benefits through UPS (my drug benefit saved me $2,789.10 on my new medicine and my hospital stay was FREE)
• Drugs (not the street ones…the doctor ones that make me feel better and keep me alive)
• The most supportive and understanding husband, family and friends
This week has been a rough one. I have Crohn’s disease, which is a chronic disease that affects my intestines and lines them with ulcers, resulting in severe abdominal pain and many other not so fun things. I went to the hospital last Wednesday very weak with a dangerously low blood count. I ended up staying five days and getting a blood transfusion. My hemoglobin was a 6.7 and normal ranges from 11-15. I am now a firm supporter of giving blood, and while I can’t donate my own blood, I urge everyone who can to donate blood. My health issues continue to remind me of how blessed I am each day and what a wonderful support system I have around me. Thank you for the visits, the prayers and the sincere get well wishes.
