Elder Tyler Joe Ashby has been called to serve for the next 2 years in Pittsburg Pennsylvania he will enter the MTC on February 3 2010 which is also his 19th birthday. He is so excited so teach and meet the people of Pittsburg. We are so proud of him and his decision to serve a mission. It will be hard to see him go, but I know this is the best thing he could be doing right now in his life. I look at his friends and what a great influence they have been in his life they are great young men. Best of luck to a great missionary.

Missionary Life

What an exciting time of life getting a missionary ready to receive his call. Several of Tyler's friends are serving or leaving very soon. It just seems like yesterday he was out riding his razor scooter and causing all kinds of trouble in the neighborhood. We are so proud of the great young man he has become. The next month will be very exciting as he receives his call.

Happy Birthday Tyler

I was feeling pretty good when I got up yesterday worked out at the gym came home when to have our taxes done and on the way home from Provo I had a melt down.  Tyler turned 18 which is not a bad thing, but I let my mind wander and we only have 9 months until he can send in his mission papers.  WOW I teared up in the car and thought my time is flying by.  Don't get me wrong I am so excited that he wants to serve a mission I am just not ready for it to be happening so fast. So after a good cry I pulled myself together and went on with the rest of the day.  I hope he had a great birthday.  Now for the next big event graduation if he can make it through the rest of his senior year.  HAPPY BIRTHDAY TYLER WE LOVE YOU

Great Friends

Meadowbrook ROCKS!  Joe and I are so lucky to live in such a great neighborhood.  This year for the Christmas party we went to play laser tag then had dinner at Los Hermanos.  I consider this neighborhood my second family.  The friendships that we have are priceless.  Thanks for the great times that we have had and many more to come.
This year for Christmas Tyler just had to have this jacket he is the one in white.  It's creepy to see him zip it all the way up although he says its great for removing snow it keeps your face really warm.  Tom is sporting the multi color jacket.

I am so grateful for such great young men that Tyler is associated with.  He has had the opportunity this year t0 meet Sam he is a foreign exchange from Brazil here for the school year. Adam (little derf) and Tom.   They know how to have a great time and have such great standards.  They were preparing to attend a school dance and all had a great time.


Wow Alan is now about 7 feet tall I guess eating your veggies even as adult you can still get taller.
On Christmas Eve the Ashby family will get together to have a wonderful dinner and then exchange gifts.  Joe's mom has a wall at her house where everyone marks how tall they are every time we get together like the brothers are still growing.  They hate the fact that Tyler is now taller than all of them by 1/4 inch.  Notice in the first family picture to the 2nd Joe's brother Alan suddenly grew about 8 inches he just about cut his head out of the picture.  We are so lucky to have such a great family and to celebrate the holidays with them.
