Mission Call

Well, my little bro, Jake got his mission call yesterday!! He has been called to serve in the Mexico City East, Mexico mission! He will be leaving at the first of April. I'm so proud of you Jake! Don't worry, you can always walk home if you get home sick! (inside joke)
He called everyone to tell them the news!

Thanks Afton for the pics! I ripped them off your blog!

Merry Christmas!

Hope everyone has a wonderful and merry Christmas! We are leaving to Las Vegas and won't be back until next week. No we are not BYU is just the Duckworth family vacation!! Hope it is warmer down there than here!

Hutch wishes everyone a Merry Christmas too!

Finals Week

Well, 2 down and 2 more to go! This morning I got through my first final and turned in a take home final in the afternoon! I am now seeing light at the end of this very long tunnel! This semester has been crazy but I am just glad to be doing what I'm doing. Next week's finals should be tough so I'm starting now to study! I should have started even earlier but with everything else on my plate, there was no way! Well, wish me luck! Hope all of you out there experiencing finals week too will do well on your tests!

Temple Square

Last night, Rory and I went with our friends downtown to see the lights. It was so crowded! But what do you expect for a Saturday night? The temple looked so pretty! Our camera has pretty crappy quality but here are some pics...

Oh one side note, 3D glasses makes the lights so freaken cool! You have to try it!! They turn them into little 3D snowflakes! Thanks Grace for the awesome idea and for bringing the glasses!

Afterwards, we went to Danny and Annie's house for hot cocoa and treats! We played the funnest game, thanks to Jonny and Grace, and then watched a movie! Great Saturday back to studying for finals. Ahhggg!

Turkey and no sleep!

Well I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving! We spent the day with my family in Midway. It is so nice to get out of this smog in Salt Lake! We had some yummy food and Rory took about 3 different naps! When I say no sleep, I meant for me at about 11:00 p.m. we headed over to PC to the outlet mall for the midnight madness sale! It was sure madness alright! The traffic was so bad but we ended up getting some good deals at Polo and AE. We woke up early the next morning to go to Macy's to buy what we thought was a good deal on a couch. Well, Rory didn't realize that the ad's listed price was only for the corner piece! What a scam...Haha oh well. Later we went to RC Willeys and found a couch we liked! Yes, you heard me right, we did buy a couch!! It is a big sectional, which was just delivered today in fact!! Hutch already found his designated sleeping spot on top of the pillows!

Saturday, I went back up to Midway to spend the day with my sister and mom. We decorated the house and went shopping to the Barn! Besides me catching this stupid cold, it was a great weekend!
