Anthony has finally graduated from Arizona State University. GO SUNDEVILS!!!! He has graduated with a Bachelors of Art in Political Science. He also commissioned with the United States Air Force as a Second Lieutenant. He commissioned with the U.S. Air Force on Dec. 17, 2009 and then Graduated from ASU on Dec. 18, 2009. That night we had a graduation party for him lots of food and people coming to congratulate him. It was also the same day of his Grandparents 55th anniversary I believe or somewhere around there. It was celebrate their anniversary with him. It's finally over! atleast for him. I on the other hand still have a long ways to go. I am almost done with my freshman year. Yipeeee!!! As far as Job, Anthony will start training in March, which means that his EAD (Enter Active-Duty) Date has changed to March 15. We'll be sticking around here for another 2 weeks or so. Anthony will be training for Space and Missiles.

Today we did the mesa turkey trot which for those who dont know is a 6.2 mile run which I did in just 45:02 seconds or so. Not my best time this was not a really good run for me today but then we cant always expect to be perfect everytime and I am hoping that my poor performance today will make it so that this next friday Dec fourth I can do well on my QFR (qualifying fitness run) for the Air Force that I need to do to be able to commission. Sia did the two mile run that was just before the turkey trot run which she completed in about 30:00 which for her first time is very good especially pushing one of the baby strollers that you can run with since she had kelly with her. Over all the turkey trot was very successful went off very well. This week I also had to go to Luke AFB for my commissioning physical but that is a story for another time.

I am going to write a little update of things that have gone on though sia has covered some things like how AWESOME Phantom of the Opera was. I had never gotten to see it and we sat up pretty close. So close that when the chandeler ignited for the first time we could feel the heat that it emited that was a cool experiance. Today was the make up PFA ( physical fitness assesement) for those of the detachment who hadnt taken it the first time for whatever reason and those who wanted to retatake it to get a better score. Allowing people to retake it is something new this semester since the class is now two credits and is for an actual grade instead of just pass or fail. Myself as well as most of the senior class had to go be proctors for the PFA so I didnt really have a real PT session this morning. Last night or should I say this morning I didnt get much sleep we went to the midnight showing of NEW MOON and got home around three and I had to be up at five to be able to make it to PT. HOOOAAA no sleep. Its all good though I dont feel tired anyway. For some reason when we got home this morning from the movies the gate to our housing complex wasnt working so we had to park the car outside the gate which we were kind of nervous about. When I got out there two hours later the car was just fine and in one piece so I was happy. Last but certainly not least is the fact that the semester is almost over and I am getting ready to graduate and commission. Yay for being done, it will be so nice to be done with everything and then only have to worry about getting to Vandanberg and all of that fun stuff which is kind of a pain becasue I cant do anything really untill I get my orders and who knows when that will be but I will keep everyone posted.

Kelly had her 4 month check-up today and some shots. She wasn't really happy as most 4 month old babies are. She weighs 14.50 lbs. which she is in the 70th percentile and 26 inches long which puts her in the 90th percentile. So she is tall for her age. The doctor also said that we can start giving her solid food.Whew! I don't have to worry anymore. Anthony was pretty excited to start giving her solid food. We went to walmart today to go get some food for her and Anthony went CRAZZZZYYY getting her food. He was literally jumping up for joy in Walmart. I love him! We're both very happy for Kelly's progression. She is always such a good, lay back, and little girl.

Saturday at 5:00 pm Anthony and I took Kelly to our friend's and neighbors house that lived like two doors down. 5:30 we were heading to ASU Gammage to watch "The Phantom of the Opera" in Tempe near ASU. We noticed that there were so many cars heading our direction as well. We figured that they were going to see Phantom of the Opera with us. We soon realized that there were so many people walking across the street in yellow shirts. Then I realized that there was a ASU Football game that was going to start soon. We parked our car at ASU Gammage and walked to chili's which wasn't far at all. I was wearing these high heels that kinda made it hard for me to walk to but I made it there and back in it. Phantom of the Opera started at 7:30 pm. It was AMAZING from start to finish. Andrew Varela who played the auctioneer/ monsieur Lafevre took us on a tour backstage. We didn't get a picture because we forgot our camera and he just looked tired but here is a picture of him.
That night was so amazing. Coming home was a little hectic just because everyone was heading home not just from the play but from the footall game. I know it was early but it was my graduation gift for him.

This last wednesday was our PFA (physical fitness assesment) for those of you who dont know military accronyms. This will be my last one as a ROTC cadet though I still have the QFR at the end of the semster to be able to graduate and commision in the USAF. This being my last PFA I wanted to achieve and did achieve the score that I have recieved on the previous PFA and QFR for field training which was a 100%. I maxed out the pushups which means I did 62 in one min though I did more, 55 situps in a minute and which I also did more, and finally a mile and a half run which I did in 9:22 seconds which I am trying to get even lower. That has been my biggest event for this week. Though I am now glad that that is behind me and onward and forward.

So last night I came home from school and kelly was all happy and joyful. Me and Anthony wanted her to go to sleep but she was so wide awake that we were worried that it was going to be hard putting her to sleep. It was 10:30 pm and anthony put her in her crib still wide awake and happy. We went to our room and read scriptures. We checked on her half hour later she was already asleep. We we're so relief that she is starting to sleep on her own. So she slept from 11 pm to 5 am. she got up and I fed her then put her in her bouncer chair while me and anthony did homework. She started to get tired again so anthony held her until she fell asleep in his arm and he put her back in her crib she slept again for another hour. We are so proud of her

Kelly Had her 2 month check-up she now weighs 11 pounds even and is 23 inches long. She also had 3 shots which she wasn't happy after that the entire day but thank goodness for medicine we gave her tylenol drops and she was a happy girl once again. She is starting to pick up her head and rolling on one side. It's so cute to see her smile and picking up her head. She is active and growing.

this week has been yet another week of school and I cant wait to be done and to graduate and move on. So far everything has worked out just fine and am enjoying most of my classes though I'm taking an advanced Spanish grammar class I never like learning English grammar so what made me think learning it in Spanish would be a good idea is beyond me so that will be my toughest class this semester. Other then that everything else is going just fine and all of my other classes are fairly easy and wont be to much trouble. Then it will be time to graduate. Which I am on track to do. I had a meeting with my academic counselor on Monday to make sure that I am on track and set to graduate but from everything that we can see I should be good to go so now I'm going to go and register for graduation. YAY!!!!!! for me.

This past sunday we had Combined FHE meaning three families come together in home. We have been doing this for the past 12 years. The Lemons Family and the Vea Family started the tradition then we added a third The Standage Family. This is where I started to get to know Anthony. We would have Family Home Evening usually every 1st sunday of the month at either of the families home and we would alternate home each month. This month was my family. Next month it is believed to be at the Lemons Home. Next month also we will be inviting nonmembers and inactive members and other families to join our yearly family night with the Standages, Lemons and the Vea family.

Last night me and anthony had a late dinner. I made chicken parmesian. While we ate around 8pm kelly fell asleep in her bouncer. We put her in her crib me and anthony finished our dinner and we went to bed at 9pm. I got up 1am anticipating she will get up. I go to her room and find she is still sleeping. I go back to bed and I hear her wake up around 3:30 am. Anthony was up as well he changed her diaper while I made a bottle for her and I fed her. She went back to sleep at around 4:30 am. I went back to sleep while anthony was up getting ready to go school. He left at 5:30 and me and Kelly didn't wake up until 7am. We all had some good sleep.
