The Hughes Family State of Affairs for 2005

1517 Aylesbury Ln, Plano TX, 75075 - (972)423-8611 -

I continue to work as an Engineer at Rockwell Collins, Inc. and Beverly continues to be the Presbyterian Minister in Commerce TX. (

This year can be summed up in two words: Busy and Travel. This year our jobs have been very demanding and we have made a number of trips including two out of the country (England and Japan).

The two big events we are preparing for next year are the birth of our first granddaughter and our daughter's wedding. Looks like 2006 will be busy too.

I still haven't made the motorcycle trip to the Palo Duro Canyon (south of Amarillo, TX) to see the Hoo Doos. I now have a dependable motorcycle but not enough free time. Next year!

Baby Zoe is due around Valentines Day! Bev already has been buying outfits! There goes retirement.

Sara and Leigh will be getting married on May 13 2006. The wedding will be in Richardson TX and the reception will be in Plano TX. Their wedding page is at
