I have to do a little tribute to this guy!! We have been blessed with an amazing son-in-law. I always tell him he is my favorite!! Nicholas was under a great amount of pressure trying to get ready to take the DAT for dental school. He studied and studied and studied to the point that it was making him physically sick. Well, after much studying, prayer, fasting and priesthood blessings he took it. I went down to the Valley and surprised them with a motel room and a little get away for when he was finished. It is like a 6 hour test and they both had been under so much pressure. Carly was a trooper trying to keep kids quiet while he was studying or playing single parent while he was gone. He ended up scoring a 21 which is amazing!!! So now we just wait to see what dental school they end up at. He has received quite a few letters from schools to set up interviews - hopefully they will know more in December!!!
I survived my 1st Valentines Day since opening the shop April 1, 2013 - It was successful and I couldn't have done it without the help of my #1 daughter and my #1 sister !! We did it!!
Just a few pics of my (our) work - I really do enjoy what I do - at times it is a lot of pressure but there is always a feeling of accomplishment. This is a casket spray that we did for my sister-in-law Kalee's sister Valee Smith - It was a privilege to put this together for such an amazing person. With casket sprays I always feel like we have divine/heavenly help.

Tim and I came across this crazy sour gum in the shape of an Easter egg - so we put it in the kids Easter basket - well - it ended up being crazy, crazy, crazy sour!! So, we had a contest with all the kids to see who could chew it the longest. Mary opted out - chicken!!!! The little guys didn't do to bad - Nate actually won - and as you can see Carly couldn't hack it!!! What a wimp Carly:)
