A Bit of New News

As of March 1, we will be living in some new digs. It is only about 1/2 block South of where we are now, but it will be a lot warmer for us. Our landlord is in our ward and we are quite excited about the prospects. She has a huge garden in the back and seems very excited to have us. Her name is Vola and she has a dog and a cat that seem friendly enough for Hallie to play with. Vola told us that we are awesome today. That makes ya feel good.
Today was busy as most Saturdays are. We left for Weight Watchers at about 7:30 am, then went grocery shopping at SuperTarget in Centerville, drive to Village Inn in Sandy for breakfast, went to Maxine's to do her monthly shopping, and finally got home about 3:30 or so. We turned around and did two loads to the new apartment stopped by B&D burgers for dinner and arrived home close to 6:00. Hallie read a bit in her textbook and then we have spent lots of time looking at maps that came in the mail of Montreal. Yes, for those of you that don't know we are going to Montreal in April for 8 days. Mike is attending a confrence with the University of Utah and they are paying for him to go. Hallie is tagging along as that is what she does best. Mike already wants to learn French. We are both very excited really to go. If you know us well enough you know that we will be of course staying in a bed and breakfast. Hallie spent about 5 hours last Saturday checking out all of the b & b's in Montreal. We finally found the one we think we will like and is a good price. A friend from the U will be staying there with us.
Hallie's brother Riley will be moving in with us on February 18th and we are looking forward to it. The two of us are happy to have an immediate member of the family so close to us. Hmmmm, maybe Hallie will have to have Sunday dinner ready for the three of us. Could turn into be a great tradition. If you call eating on the couch Sunday dinner, then there we go. Well that is really all the excitement from the twins here in Salt Lake City. Bye for now.
