Many Updates

Wow, we've been keeping busy around here. Sorry I don't have any pictures right now. I keep forgetting to download them and Sam is always sleeping when I remember that I need to do that, so the pictures will follow....hopefully.

We're all suffering from a little cold around here. Nothing bad, but just annoying. Sammy turned 11 months old on Thursday. He also got two more top teeth that day.

I went to a Norwex conference in Owatonna Thursday evening. I've never been to a meeting with Norwex and was excited to go. I'm really glad I went. The CEO of the company was there and she gave a really good speech, answered sales reps questions and showed us all the new products. I'm sure I will attend all upcoming conferences from now on. They have so many new products and they are all so great! I already ordered the new kitchen towels and after seeing them I can't wait to get them this week. They are going to be great, I think I'll need to order more.

I've never really been that interested in the skin care line, but now it's totally organic and after seeing it I will be switching to them as well. The skin care line is really nice. Everything is ECO certified organic and they are priced really well as far as comparable products. They are no more pricier than the products I buy at Target, but so much nicer and better for you. Needless to say I'm really excited about all the new things.

I'm planning on hosting an open house at my house here this fall. Hoping to get a few more customers and parties planned. Hopefully everything turns out well.

Other than that we're just hanging around here. We have rally day at church tomorrow. I've heard they have a mime for the kids. Ella's pretty excited about starting Sunday school. There are so many new things this year that it's taking a little more time adjusting to our new schedule.

We also got a couple new fish for our tank. Ella wanted to pick them out, so she got a couple new guppy's. These are not any guppy's though, they are baby guppy's. The lady at the store thought we were crazy for wanting the baby fish because they were so small, but Ella really wanted the teeny tiny ones, so those are the ones we got. It's really cute when she shows you how fast their little fins go. They are doing very well too. The smallest one is named Waldo because you can hardly ever find him. We're always asking, "where's Waldo?"

That's about all going on here, I'll try to add pictures soon so check back!!

Shannon you do a great job of keeping us up to date on Ella and Sammy (and you guys)with pictures and comments. Sorry to hear about the colds hope you all are back to 100% soon. I bet your Norwex conference was interesting (it's always nice to learn about new products and to hear the head Norwexer talk). There is something enjoyable about getting together with your business peers and hearing other peoples "war stories". I bet Ella enjoyed Sunday school she is so sociable. Love the story on the little fish and the smaller one being called Waldo. "Where is Waldo?" is funny.
