Andy is cracking out the books, he is pushing through school. He has History, Library Research, English, & Computer gaming Class.
He is half way through school. I'm so excited for that.
His health is doing good, Still needs O2 but we are glad that we're not in the hospital. That reminds me last year around this time I was up for 2 days trying to take care of Andy when he 1st came home... I'm so glad we have passed that trail.
We are getting back on the plan, Weight Watchers. Vacation took us on a long detour of eating crazy. But it was worth it for the taste bugs but the weight gain not pretty. Anyway I guess that is why there is always a fresh start.
Me I've been in creation mode, I've got crafts everywhere, my mind is swamped with Christmas gift ideas. Then I'm swimming in homemade soup. I keep making soup so far I've made 4 different types of soups this week and 2 more to make. I made an amazing soup today it had pumpkin, yams, cream, spices, and broth, we named it "Fall Delight".
That is about all that has been happening...

Saturday evening, Aug. 7, 2010, Joyce Fornoff Weston finished her wonderful journey in beautiful Cache Valley, where she lived her entire life.
She was born on July 8, 1927, in Ogden, Utah, to Harold Leonard Fornoff and Ruth Pingree Fornoff. Living her youth in Logan, she fell in love with Todd G. Weston. They married Oct. 16, 1946. Their marriage was solemnized in the Logan Utah LDS Temple. Their love and devotion brought to Earth five wonderful children.
Grandma Joyce's life could be described as a life with a fierce loyalty and deep and everlasting love for her husband. She supported him in his business ventures and his political endeavors locally and statewide. She took care of him as he took care of her. Joyce and Todd loved their children and were pleased with their accomplishments and deeply and emotionally involved in the trials that came from time to time. Joyce is known throughout Cache Valley for her love of music and her incredible talent playing the piano - she mastered it. She taught hundreds of students, including students from Utah State University while she was associated there with the Music Department. Many times she expressed her desire to play for anyone at any time. Joyce served faithfully in all she was called to do, serving in particular for many years in the Relief Society including a time as president. She accompanied the ward choir for what seemed like decades. Joyce Weston is one of those people who make you feel like your life is better just by knowing her. Her smile and laughter were contagious. When one thinks back on her life she can truthfully be described with these words: loving, without guile, innocent, desirous to do good, unwilling to do wrong, giving but also appreciative to receive, thrifty and as she would say sometimes Scotch. She could not stand to throw away anything, especially wrapping paper on her presents. Grandma was always happy to see us. Gathering her family at Christmas seemed to be her favorite time during the year, and she could make it seem to last until Valentine's Day. When you went to Grandma's house, you could never eat enough. She always wanted to give more. This was symbolic of her life as she served and lifted many people for many years. Her tired and worn body finally gave up, but her tremendous Spirit and incredible love will never fatigue in the hearts and minds of her family and all those who knew her.
Grandma Joyce was preceded in death by her husband Todd G. Weston, her parents and her little baby sister Carol, who was born on Christmas Eve and died at the age of 4. She leaves her children and their spouses, Bart and Judy Weston, Randy and Debi Weston, Joyce and Greg Oman, Julie and Jim Ridd, and Sam and Judy Weston. Joyce and Todd enjoyed 18 grandchildren from these unions. These grandchildren have given Joyce 24 great-grandchildren, with at least 4 more coming in the near future. Joyce is survived by her brother Louis Fornoff and his wife Shirley.
The family is grateful for all those who have cared for Grandma Joyce these past three years, especially the staff at Legacy House in Logan.

Cat Vs. Dog
Lucky has been pretty good with the new environment except for when Marvin, my parents really fat cat, decided to come out of hiding. Last night all my family was seating a talking. Lucky was seating on the floor and Marvin sneaked out which made Lucky want to chase the cat. Then came on the boxing gloves Marvin charged Lucky and kept whacking Lucky on the head, mean while Lucky kept yelping and barking. Just so all you animal lovers know Marvin has no claws anymore so no animals were hurt. This went on for a good 2 min. man it was so funny cause Lucky kept challenging Marvin and Marvin would show Lucky who was the boss of this house.
Dog Vs. Dog
Danielle and Steve ended up bring there dog Reggie, he is young pup a Golden Retriever, Of corse with pups they think that everyone is there to play with them. I let Lucky out to go do his bussness and Reggie was so excited to see another dog and kept trying hard to play with Lucky. Poor Lucky he kept running away and Reggie thought that they were playing tag or something and kept chasing Lucky. As you could imaganie Lucky was a cranky old man and Reggie a young kid that kept bugging the old man to play. I could just imagne what they would say.
Lucky, "D*** young buck stop bugging me. Didn't your mother ever teach you to respect your elder."
Reggie, "Come on lets play... Please, Please , Please."
Dog Vs. Boy
Dylon my nephew is a boys boy. He is a outdoor, ruff and tuff kid. Dylon loved having the dogs around. But Reggie and Dylon have a special relationship, almost like brothers. You know the type you punch me I get to punch you back.
Dylon was out side with cousins and Reggie was just running from one kid to the other licking, jumping, and wagging his tail.
Earlier that day I tried to teach Dylon how to throw a stick and have the dogs chase it and bring it back. Dylon thought he would try it with Reggie, Dylon got a stick but Reggie was to fast & was trying to take the stick away from Dylon. Then finally Dylon got the stick back but instead of throwing it he started to hit Reggie with it. Reggie again thinking it was a game started to jump and try to grab the stick. Dylon kept swinging the stick around and Reggie decide to push Dylon over. It was so funny because both of them were smiling and Dylon was laughing.

One of our celebrations is our amazing goal rinding our self of extra weight. Andy Hit his 50 pounds lost and plus. I'm just a few pounds away. The neat thing about how we are loosing is we are just eating right... NO exercise crazy huh... We are in love with Weight Watchers. They are teaching us how to treat our body as a fueling tank... The cheaper the quality the harder it is to fuel and amount of food you take in the more you have to feed yourself. The better the Fuel like veg's.'s, fruits, lean meats and the right portion size the longer you last and more fat you burn. The best thing is we are not dieting we are just eating what our bodies need. As of Thursday July 8th We weighed in Andy had lost 60.2 pounds , Me 42 pounds. Together equals a total of 102.2 pound lost, that is like the weight of Super Model or a teenager, insane. I must say it feels great to be healthier and lighter.

Yesterday night Andy came and picked me up from work and with a big grin on his face said I have something for you. Never did I ever think that it was my wedding ring... but that is not all the little stinker had went and gotten it professionally cleaned. My heart was just a thumping with joy, it was as though he propose to me again. I love you Andy you made my day/week.
Now all I have to do is find a necklace so I can wear it at work with out having to take it off and risk loosing it again.

P.s. We decided to adopt a baby......
Just kidding.... Isn't she cute... She is my bosses little girl, she was a love bug.
But crossing my fingers that the rest off the weight comes off as fast.
If it doesn't I'm okay with that as long as I'm losing and not gaining that is all that really matters.

After much convencing we told her this class was for us to know what to teach. My Hubby sure knows how to make friends with older people. Already he has bubbies and it has only been 3 days that he has taught. I'm very proud of him, I guess the older people see what I see in him a big cheerful heart. Man I love him.
Beside that he has been keeping himself bussy with helping out family and friends by fixing computers, babysitting kids, to preparing classes for his volinteer job.
Me on the other had I'm just up to no good ;o>.... working hard or like my dad says, "Hardly working." With my spare time I've gotten pretty addicted to Cafe World, and having the kitchen cleaned... (I wondering if the cleaning fix is do to the Cafe World game.)
Then I've been going crazy with crafts I've defiantly have the Crafty Virus or something.
All in all that has been our life for the last few weeks...
Ohhhh... can't forget the most important thing Andy and I have been doing Weight Watchers. In a month we have lost total together 28 pounds, Andy 15 almost 16, me 13. I'm pretty happy that we were blessed to have this program Weight Watchers in our life. Thank you to all who are supporting us, we love you.

The other day as I was going about my daily activities I remembered a moment in my teens. We had lived in North Logan for a year, I was struggling in school because I was new to the area. Dwayne was very in tune with the spirit or something cause he came up with a fun way to make my blues into service.
One night as I was about asleep he quickly woke me and told me about a Secret Ninja Service, he wanted to start. The point of this Service is to serve others in secret. He thought so much of this that he even made head bands that had SNS. That night we started our secret service, I still remember Dwayne busting out his ninja moves as we did the dishes at 12 am.
That was not his only act of Selfless service he did, he served a LDS mission in Korea then served in the USA Army and now with the greatest service, his own little family. For as long as I've known him he has served those around him with the love of Christ.
Thank you so much Dwayne your example of Christ like service it has blessed me through out my life. You have taught me to reach outward to others, instead of inverting inward. Love you a ton.

The 1st day we ate at a really awesome restaurant called Farmers Grill. I have to say it was pretty good, the BBQ chicken was to die for. The neat thing about the restaurant they grow there own veggies in the farm behind the restaurant. Talk about fresh food....
Then we went to one of the biggest malls, Arizona Mills. It's so big they have markers everywhere to let you know where you at and they call them towns. After a lap in that mall you can count it for your mile walk.
Then we played at the park with family... It's funny to see the differences in parks in Utah they have green grass, tons of trees and plants, Arizona's trees are sparse more sand or rocks than grass. But hey Dylon loves it a ton... I think that rocks are his favorite toy.
Then Dwayne showed us his school which was pretty neat.

At the park, the sun was so bright. Andy, Marcha and I posing for a photo.
