I ran a 5k!

Celia and I set a goal to do a 5k. She found this one in Grapevine for the first weekend of October. We both have been training and running trying to get ready for something neither of us has done! We were so excited and nervous at the same time! I went up the night before and had dinner with her and Corry and then we got up the next morning, setting out to conquer a huge goal for us both! We got our numbers and shook off the nerves and guess what!? WE DID IT! We both finished on better times than we thought and left knowing we want to do this again! It was great fun for me to get to spend time with my newest sister n law one on one! I love her and love that she did this challenge with me! I love you Celia! Thanks must be given to our paparazzi, Corry for snapping shots of us!

Big Jake started Kindergarten! No tears on either end were shed and he is loving his new teacher, Mrs. Troell.
Jaici moved up to 2nd grade. She is such a good helper with getting Jake to his class and loves school to no end.
Jud the stud moved into a new building. The intermediate. He is now in 5th grade and switching classes several times. He seems to be enjoying the other classes offered this year.
Its just me and Jarom at home now and we love it!

Scentsy to Celebrate 5Th Anniversary with Community Give-Back Event

--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Scentsy:
WHAT: Scentsy will celebrate its 5th Anniversary and the company’s rapid rise from a small, family-owned business into one the country’s most prominent and emerging home d├ęcor brands with a unique community give-back program designed to share Scentsy’s success with the local community.


Saturday, July 18, 2009: 20 businesses at 1:00 p.m. and 20 businesses at 3:30 p.m.


At 40 local, family-owned businesses in the Treasure Valley nominated by Scentsy employees.


In the “Giving Back Makes Scents” program, 1,000 Scentsy employees, suppliers and family members, collectively armed with $100,000 from owners Orville and Heidi Thompson, will converge on the Valley in groups of 50 to spend $50 each at 40 family-owned businesses. Each business will receive $2500 in sales revenue from spending by Scentsy employees in their 5th Anniversary shirts. Through this program, the company is working to strengthen the local economy, to show its support for small business owners, and to reward its employees.

Research shows that dollars spent at community-based merchants create a multiplier effect in the local economy. The American Independent Business Alliance estimates that for each dollar spent at a local independent merchant, three or more times as much goes back into the local economy compared to a dollar spent at chain-owned businesses.


Scentsy, Inc. is a rapidly growing party-plan company offering a variety of scented, wickless candles heated in decorative ceramic warmers, and other fragrance products. The simplicity and value of its products provide a better alternative to burning wicked candles in the home and office. Scentsy is the Direct Selling Association’s 2009 winner of the Rising Star Award, which recognizes companies that dedicate themselves to achieving a high standard of excellence in business operations. What began in 2004 in a 40-foot ocean shipping container on a small Idaho sheep farm is now a national company growing 300 percent annually with more than 35,000 independent consultants in the United States, Puerto Rico and Guam.

We have just returned from 7 wonderful, sunnyfun filled days! We had the pleasure of going on another cruise...that took us to jammin' Jamaica and Grand Cayman. We were supposed to go to Cozumel..but they skipped that port due to the flu! We were so happy that another couple friends of ours from church went also! It was wonderful seeing them everynight at dinner and talking about the day and watching the fun shows! I loved having Jennifer and Kenneth with us!!Great memories were made!!
