More Tonka and an update

I know that I have been consumed with Tonka lately. It seems like he is all I talk about with other people and he's been the subject of my last few blog posts too. Come on though! Look at those ears! How could I not be obsessed? He's totally adorable. So here's a slide show of the Tonka-tot. But, since I don't care for those blogs that talk about nothing but children, I will try to contain my love for my Tonka monster and give everyone a small update too.


So an update. Well the last few weeks I've worked from home part time making hand bound books. We customized them with our company logos and gave one to each employee as a gift. I'll take a picture of the exact book one day and post it. I thought they were really cool and it was nice to take a break from being in the office. However, in the spirit of spending less money we dramatically cut back on our Christmas expenditures this year. Which meant a lot more work on my part. But you won't hear any complaints from me (he he I know my boss reads my blog..hi Blaine!). I love being busy at work and planning and organizing parties is really fun for me! With the help of my good friend and co-worker, Jayni, it all came together and I think we had a good Christmas party. Unfortunately, I didn't get any pictures of that either. And both of us brought our cameras. Bummer.

I've started Christmas shopping and I've ordered or know what I am getting everyone on my list. I can't believe the big holiday is only two weeks away. Eek!

Holli was made front desk supervisor at the hotel and along with her boss, is throwing all of the front desk agents a small party. I offered my condo as a location. With a little furniture moving I think it will be a great spot for the party of 6-7 people. Her and I will be decorating tomorrow night and Saturday morning for it. Maybe we'll remember pictures at this party.

Madi and Brady had an ultrasound on Monday and they found out the baby is a boy! I'm going to have a nephew in about 5 months! Cool! I've already got ideas for a little baby boy book in my head. I'll probably work on that during Christmas. I'm going to try to teach myself to knit (again) during Christmas too. Amy recommended a few tutorials on YouTube that helped her figure it out on her own. Do you think I have enough links in this blog post?

Lastly, someone moved into the condo below mine. A few of you heard my drama with the couple who used to live there. Hopefully, there isn't any with the new tenants. Although, the more I talk to (or try not to talk to) the other tenants around me, the more I think I live in the middle of crazyville. One unit thinks my name is Heather (a fine name, but not mine). They did give me a giant bag of Twizzlers and a cute card for Christmas. So they can call me anything they like if candy is involved! Another is occupied by a pack rat who told me herself she has a big problem throwing things away and had to have the entire neighborhood help in cleaning out her two bedrooms to have new carpet installed. Help for two bedrooms? Okay? And another gave me attitude about the swamp cooler vent being dirty when he was shutting off the water for the winter. Umm okay, sorry my house isn't up to your squeeky clean standards. But to be honest, you live on the bottom unit and always have the blinds open on your little deck thing. I can see right into your kitchen/dining room when I come and go. You're standards clearly aren't that high buddy.

Well that's the update, I hope you enjoyed. :)

I didn't know Madi found out she is having a boy. That is so fun. You guys need another boy in your family!!

Hi Blaine! Great seeing you at the Doba last week. That painted hand award is one of the coolest things I've ever seen!

Oh, and Meagen, just so you know... a couple days ago when I said I almost forgot your name, I actually almost called you "Meg" and was on the verge of spitting out "Hi Meg, uh, nnnn."

Not as bad as "Heather," right?
