Our first sale!

Well, we have officially made our first sale on our business ebay site. We have been getting good traffic. The more we put up, the more traffic we get. We have bids on a few items as well, so we are excited to see this take off. We have purchased a very nice web package with cart, hosting, etc. Tomorrow we will begin the design process with my old roomate, Bob Craig doing the design. Tonight Matt and I had a great meeting and are really starting to mold our business nicely. It's fun to take steps forward.

The Fall is Coming!!

Well, the Fall is coming! good and bad with that. Amy says it is nice, but it reminds her that Winter is close and she doesn't like the winter. However, we both love the Fall temperatures, colors, and the idea that holidays are on the way. This will be the first Fall in a while that Adam hasn't been a student at some level or extent. It's kind of crazy.

We went to a mission reunion tonight and Amy got to meet people from Adam's mission. It was interesting to see some of them have 3-4 children, Phds, and careers. It's still hard to consider ourselves adults of some kind. The reunion was in Alpine at the park, where Henry got to have his first taste of the swing and the slide. He loved them both. We had to pry his hands off the chains on the swing. Henry is getting to the point where he hates having things taken away from him. He's a funny little guy.

One funny thing from the reunion was that Adam was the only one there that hadn't worked in the office at some point in the mission. Lucky Him!

Adam has been spending time golfing these days whenever he gets a chance. He loves the challenge, talking with friends on the course, and the exercise from walking.

Amy sold her first projects! - a small beadboard shelf and a magnent board. She did a great job of painting them and giving them a nice vintage/rustic feeling.

Adam is busy working on his business. They are working on the new ebay store called "Trashology" and will have a website up soon as well ( Go to ebay and see his store - it's only a few days old right now.

Anyway, life is good. Pictures to come soon.

Be good, all.

Adam has finally finished his masters degree. He graduated this last week (August 17-18). It's nice to have this segment of life through. The Brundage family (Amy's parents) were in town for the week and helped us celebrate. We had a nice family dinner with Clarks and Brundages all together at Los Hermanos on Thursday. Then Friday night we had a nice open house. It's been a good week, but it'll be nice to have things calm down a bit.

Stat...Clear....beep, beep, beep....It's ALIVE!!!

Yes, our blog is revived. I have decided to do better with this thing. If nothing else, I will make an entry once a week. Seriously.

Here is a fun recap of everything since the last post...

Adam lost the election 35% to 65% in November.

We spent Thanksgiving and Christmas with the Clark family in Elk Ridge. Both were fun times.

Adam had his own business, started a second one, added a partner, then a second partner...Adam quit all his businesses and dropped a partner...Adam started a new business with partner, Matt Chantry. It is called Wasatch Barn Company...There is now three people in the business and 2 new organizations (1 for profit business and 1 non-profit). If you are confused, well, call Adam and he'll be glad to talk your ear off about it.

We spent time in California in January at the Brundages. We went to Disneyland and California Adventure. It was pretty fun, but Adam was sick. Adam went home and Amy stayed for a bit longer.

We went to Iowa and visited Adam's brother, Jason, and his family. We babysat their 6 kids while Jason and Michelle went on a cruise. We got to visit nauvoo and Carthage. We had a good time.

Henry is growing slowly and is lots of fun. He's just a little guy with a full head of red hair. We love him tons. He might be the cutest kid ever.

Amy is still working out and looks great. She works on fun in-home projects and especially enjoys decorating and re-decorating the house.

Adam works long hours on his business and has spent a lot of time out of town working on Barn projects. He has a great tan (in some places) and is slowly losing weight. He sports a shaved (buzzed) head and occasionally a beard (if you can call it that).

Adam is graduating from BYU with a Masters in Education: Comparative and International Development Education. Graduation is Thursday August 17 and 18. He just turned 32 and is having fun being an entrepreneur.

We finally re-landscaped our front yard (Adam did it while Amy was in California for 2 weeks). It has been nice to have a landscaped front.

Well, that's probably enough. If you want details, call us, email us, or if you are into 8-tracks and things like that, you can mail us.

Overall, life is great. We are extremely blessed.
