Not much new to report this week, we are continually gathering things and preparing for the drop off date.  Six weeks left to finish up all of the gathering, get all of the paper work done, and  then its off he goes! 

The sooner he goes the sooner he'll be back, right?

Date confirmed, Nov. 13 it is!

I just wanted to post a quick note to let you all know that we have confirmed the date Jeff will be speaking in our ward.  November 13th at 1:00 pm at the stake center between Highway 6 and Canyon road (it's on 2550 East).  I know some of you will be traveling some distance, if you would like us to help find lodging let us know, we would be happy to help.

We picked up Jeff's new clothes yesterday and I must say he looks good!  We'll be taking some pics of him soon and I'll post one for your viewing pleasure sometime after we get them taken (because it is difficult to post pics before they are taken, DUH).

Still no word on the date Jeff will be speaking.  Last weekend was stake conference and things got shaken up a bit.  Our stake presidency was released and replaced, in the new presidency is our bishop and our home teacher as 2nd and 1st counselors (in that order).  Needless to say our ward is in for a bit of a shake up.  Amidst the chaos the importance of getting us a confirmed speaking date seems to have diminished.  While I am not surprised or at all upset about the situation it would be nice to be able to give family members and friends who want/need to make travel arrangements a firm date.  I guess my point here is to ask you for your patience with the information while we sort all of this crazy stuff out.

In other news --  Jeff's friend Justin received his call yesterday! YAY! For those of you who know Justin he will be serving in the Tallahassee, Florida mission.  If I'm not mistaken that is where Jeff's Grandpa Mosdell served his mission.  Small world eh?

You may or may not have noticed the lack of a post on Tuesday this week, we are still trying to confirm the date that Jeff will be speaking in our ward (currently planning on Nov. 13th).  This has been particularly difficult because last week was Labor day weekend so most members of the bishopric were out of town and this weekend is stake conference for us.  We'll get it all figured out and post the confirmed info here A.S.A.P.

We'll be making the BIG shopping trip today! New suits, pants, shoes, luggage, the works!  I'm excited to get the shopping underway and move along with this process.  Of course the mommy in me is dreading it some too.  Hopefully the Mr. Mac experience will be a fantastic one so we can get all of this done relatively painlessly and then enjoy a nice lunch out with Jeff, my dad, and some friends.  Keep your fingers crossed for us!
