The Hughes Family State of Affairs for 2007

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

I continue to be a manager at Rockwell Collins, Inc. and Beverly continues to be the Presbyterian Minister at First Presbyterian Church Commerce TX. (

This year Beverly continued her trend of celebrating her B'Day in exciting places. '05 in Tokyo, '06 in Vienna and this year in Hawaii. The Hawaiian trip wasn't all vacation as she went there to perform a wedding. I went along to carry her wedding book. We still took plenty of time to enjoy Kona though. We must have been good luck as when we left Kona they had an earthquake and a hurricane.

In August Beverly had a treatment to deaden some nerves that were damaged and cause her to have chronic pain syndrome. The treatment met with some success.

We had a number of highlights this year: Zoe's first B'Day Party, Sara's 30th B'Day, Elaine's MBA, David & Elaine moved and Maia's arrival.
