Things that are new......
Don is a new man! He has lost 50+ lbs as of today. He looks great and we are celebrating his success. We both spend an hour in the gym almost everyday. Counting down the days until our Disney vacation in August in our new bodies and swimsuits! Thanks to Don I have lost 15 lbs since mid-January. Long way to go, but motivation is abundant! We had an awfully cold and snowy winter. The only plus was an extended visit by my parents and a brief visit by Heidi and Tristin. The neighbors enjoyed my house being decorated for Valentines and St. Patrick's Day (compliments of my Mother, of course)and Lilo & Stitch enjoyed entertaining Tristin!
We have a Son-in-Law! Congratulations to Heidi and John who celebrated their special day on March 12, 2010. Can't wait to introduce John and show him off to the rest of the family. Heidi seems so happy now, and we wish her and John love that lasts a lifetime. They live in Montgomery, Al. John works for himself and is a local voiceover "celebrity". Heidi is still going to school and throughly enjoying motherhood and her new life as "Mrs. John Yuhas".
Tristin is turning one year old in two weeks - CAN YOU BELIEVE THAT?? Already a year old and it seems like yesterday I was trying to catch a flight to Montgomery while Heidi was in labor hoping to make it before she delivered. I have no idea why this picture is dated 2/13/09. It was taken on a snowy 2/13/2010 in my van in Weirton, WV. Grandpa Don was entertaining him while Mimi drove the van around the parking lot waiting on his mommy to finish shopping!
Don is commuting back and forth to Youngstown ARS in Ohio. In January he started his new job as the Deputy Operations Group Commander. He is very goal oriented and his career is progressing. We are excited about what the future and command holds for us. If we are lucky it will include a move back south close to family and friends.
I am still working at the local lawfirm and loving it! I am fortunate to be able to visit with Heidi every 12 weeks or so and see Tristin. I am still scrapbooking when I have time and trying to learn to quilt whether I have time or not!
That's a quick update from the Richeys. All is well, life is good and we are truly blessed with good health, a loving family and fabulous friends. Come and see us!
