Hi again. Life seems to be flying by. I can't believe it's almost Thanksgiving. I am enjoying my new job. For those of you who may not know, I'm working in the Medical Staff Office, still at Pioneer Valley Hospital. I've worked at PVH for 10 years now. My new position is challenging and keeps me very busy. I like it better than what I had been doing. Mostly, I guess, I'm greatful that James and I have jobs with the economy the way it is right now.

James is working for Resort Quest in Park City. Besides all his normal accounting duties, he has been busy overseeing the building of a ski shop in their renovated offices. He came up with the idea, convinced the company that it was a viable plan, and has been involved with it each step of the way. He's pretty excited about it. With the travel industry hurting, and reservations down, they are hoping the ski shop will help them through a trying time.

Kristi is still working at Home Depot. She is talking about going to the Community College, but I don't know if she's done much toward getting registered. She bought herself a little car, which she then wrecked and Kyle is fixing. She's hoping to get it back in a week or two. She loved the Twilight books, but is not thrilled with the casting of the movie.

Melanie loved the Twilight books, too. She and 3 friends have tickets to the first midnight showing of the movie. Melanie, Kyle and family are coming down for Thanksgiving weekend. We've gotten to see quite a bit of them lately what with Aaron's wedding, Rylee's Halloween party and our trips to Idaho. We are having a Thanksgiving Dinner on Saturday with our kids here on Saturday. Aaron won't be able to come on Thanksgiving Day and we kind of like doing our own, too.

Kambrie and Tucker are growing so fast. Katelyn and Rylee, too, but with Kambrie and Tucker you can almost see them change. Tucker is 16 months old. Kambrie will be 16 months on the 27th. Grandkids are wonderful. I am sure I'm biased, but I can't help but think they are the cutest, smartest and most amazing kids in the universe.

James is out working on Dani's car at the moment. Dani is reading the Twilight books now. Aaron and Sarah started all this interest in the Twilight books by giving me the first one for Christmas. From there it's just snowballed...

Aaron and Sarah are doing well. We are so glad that they were able to be married in the Temple. They have a cute little apartment in Sandy. They had car trouble last week and made an unexpected trip to Idaho to have Kyle fix their brakes. Aaron took two days off work. They drove up Wednesday night, had a nice visit, and came home Sunday. Thank goodness for Kyle. He is a genius with fixing cars and always willing to help us. We're sure grateful.

And speaking of being grateful, may I just say that we are grateful for all of our family. Our children are wonderful. Dani and Ben have shared their home with us and are helping us through a hard time. I don't know what we would have done without them. Devin has helped us out so much. Many of you probably don't realize that he helped me buy my car. He is so generous. I don't know what we'd have done without him. Each of our children is dear to us. We love them so much. We are greatly blessed.

We are equally blessed with extended family and freinds. We are grateful to be blessed with so many wonderful people in our lives.
