My First Project.

My first project in the new apartment has been to paint the living room. Which I did completely by myself. I picked out the color, went and bought the supplies and painted. I even took down and put up the blinds myself. This was a big accomplishment. The color change is not drastic, we went from stark, flat, crusty white, to a nice, satin, Big City Beige. These are before and after shots.

DETROIT BASKETBALL!



While everyone has been gearing up for the big game, Tony and I got to go to a Piston's game with Chris and Jennifer.

Slumber Party!


I got to have a slumber party with Emily, Christopher and Calvin! It was so fun! We ate Pizza and watched, "That's so Raven" and "The Suite Life of Zack and Cody," and Tony even let the boys watch him play "the game."

Done and done.

Congratulations to Tony for graduating from Brigham Young University in December! We just received his diploma in the mail. He worked hard and put in a lot of hours and I'm very proud of him. Now he's working even harder and putting in even more hours...I know it will all pay off.

The First Presidency Christmas Devotional


























This year we were able to attend the Christmas Devotional at the conference center with Ashley and Cody. It was awesome! The decorations were beautiful, the Mormon Tabernacle Choir sounded amazing, and the message put us in the right mood for the holidays. Here are some pictures and the lights on Temple Square. Cody seems to have a little twinkle in his eye---must be for Ashley. ;)

A time for thanks.



















We spent Thanksgiving with Tony's parents this year, in Union City. One day I went with Marta/Mom to school. We learned about Pilgrims and Native Americans and made butter. It was very enlightening.
It was great to see her in action.

We Made It!


Hi All!

Just an update on what we've been up to since the big, long, move.
