Knock, Knock Who's There Project

Amanda and I have started a new project.  Knock, Knock Jokes.  Who doesn't love them!?!?!

We have decided to record and post 1 funny knock, knock joke per day.  I select the joke and read it to myself.  Then I turn the camera on and tell it to Amanda.  She has never heard the joke before and her reactions are priceless.  She has the best laugh.  I hope you enjoy them as much as I do.

Nothing brightens my day more than hearing my childrens laughter.

Changes at Work

I feel bad being so absent from my blog.  I really enjoy writing the posts but time has been really tight lately.

Last Monday I got a new boss.  I am very excited about what this new boss can do for our department.  She is very intelligent and has a lot of great experience.  Trucking experience.  This is huge for us!  Huge!

Today I went into work and moved my docking station, monitor, personal items, etc to a new desk.  This was hard because I like my old desk.  I like my neighbors.  It's close to the bathroom, water, and coffee pot.  It was centrally located and private.  My new desk is my upstairs, not as private but is near the computer room and bathroom.  It's close to the break room.  I don't really know any of the people I will sit by.    I went in to move my desk so I could do this at my pace without a ton of questions about why I was doing it.  I got settled and turned up the tunes.  I got my reports done and feel comfortable in my new digs.

We will see how things progress.  One day at a time, one foot in front of the other.  It will be ok.

Valentines Day Craft

Are you ready for Valentines day?  My daughter Amanda is.  She's been working on her Valentines Cards/Gifts for two weeks.  Jacob (of course) hasn't started yet.

Here is a great looking Valentines Card idea.  I would love to see pictures of your cards.  Be sure to share them with me!

Busy Bee

I have been a busy little bee the last few days.  Sorry I was so absent from the blog.  Time just seems to get away from me so easily.

Last Weekend my Great Uncle passed away so on Monday I ducked out of work for a while and went to the funeral.  It was a wonderful service honoring a great man.  He had been in the Korean War and was rightly honored by the Color Guard.  The 21 Gun Salute and Taps always gets to me.  They show such respect and care for the family.  It was an honor to watch them present my Aunt and their kids with the flag.

This last week was Lutheran Schools Week at St. Paul's School.  This is always such a fun week for the kids.  Every day they get to dress up with a different theme.  Tuesday John and I went and had lunch with the kids.  It was crazy Hair and Clash day.

Lunch with Mom and Dad is always Fun!!

 After lunch we hunt out in the Kindergarten Room and played Shoots and Ladders for a bit.  Always a good time hanging out in Mrs. Wolf's Room!! Amanda is so proud of her classroom and loves to show us around.  She loves going to school.

Wednesday was Muffins with Mom Day and Friday was Donuts with Dad.  Everybody got in on the fun last week!!

We also are proud to announce we have a new driver in the family.  Nick passed his drivers license test on Thursday.  I can honestly say I have no worries about him driving.  He does an amazing job and is very mature about it.  So proud of the young man he has grown into.  I haven't gotten a chance to snap a picture of him with the car.  Don't worry... next time the opportunity comes I won't let it slip away!

Saturday was Bach Fest in New Ulm.  John and I weren't able to go out to the brewery for festivities but we were able to sneak out for a little while Saturday night.  There were several live bands downtown and the weather was beautiful out.  We walked downtown and got to visit with some great friends down there. It's always fun to sneak out for some time with my Husband.

Love one another

It's always hard to come back to work on Mondays.  We get so cozy in the weekends.  It probably doesn't help when it's this cold and we got more snow last night.  To get an extra jump on things I hauled my rear out of bed an hour early and came into work.  It's so nice to come in when it's quiet and you can actually be on top of things.  Most days I dive into the "thick of it" and always feel behind the 8 ball.  So glad I did.

I am headed out in a few minutes to my Great Uncles Funeral.  Mayo Granaas.  So sad to see such a wonderful man leave this world.  I'm clinging to the thought that he's with his Sister now.  My Grandma.  By now she's a pro at Heaven and I imagine she's showing him around. I'm sure they had a great time catching up.

Be good to one another today.  You never know when things could change in an instant.
