    Back to Work

    Thursday, September 22, 2005

    Today is my first day back at work and as you can tell from this post, it has been very productive, haha. I have only called daycare once to check on Benjamin, I am pretty proud of myself! They said that he was swinging in the swing and seemed very happy. I cannot wait to pick him up at 5:00!

    The three of us took a short road trip yesterday. We were in the Cities because Mike and I attended the Coldplay concert (which was AWESOME - they're my favorite band). So we drove down Highway 61 to Winona where we visited our friends, Samantha and Jacob. We also gave Benjamin a tour of the Winona State University campus, which has changed a lot! I even took him up on stage to show him where Mommy used to perform. And then, to be fair Mike had to take him to the Computer Science building. It was a beautiful day and we had a great time!
    I won't even mention how I forgot the camera at home so we have no pictures of the day...

    Benjamin's Baptism

    Sunday, September 18, 2005

    Benjamin's big weekend went fabulously! Family came from near and far to attend his baptism. We are so thankful to have such wonderful families who are so generous with their love and support! Ben was even able to spend a little extra time with his very special Great Grandmother who flew all the way from Florida to see him, how wonderful! There are photos on our webshots account for now from the weekend and here are a couple as well...

    Big Event Coming Up

    Tuesday, September 13, 2005

    Benjamin has a very big weekend coming up! His Baptism is going to be on Sunday and there are a lot of people traveling a long distance just to be here for it. He is very excited...or that could just be gas, haha.

    We took our first trip as a family down to Illinois over Labor Day weekend, which was a blast. Benjamin had his picture taken and we had a BBQ to introduce him to some family and friends for the first time. I posted some pictures from the weekend and also from the Packers game (last Sunday) on our webshots photos page. Since that website is now asking us for money in order to add more pics, I am going to look into other options for all of our pictures. Stay tuned for that exciting change!

    Here is a picture of Benjamin chilling out this weekend...isn't he one cool dude??

    Benjamin reached a milestone this Monday, he laughed for the very first time! Now he can't stop laughing!! While Mike was away we attended the wedding of our friends, Greg and Yvonne, and we had a great time there! We also visited Grandma and Grandpa Schmitt and spent the day with Auntie Jen and Cousin AJ. This weekend we are driving down to Illinois to visit Grandma and Grandpa Andrews and to see other various family members for the first time at a BBQ on Saturday.

    Our friends, Casey and Lisa, had an addition to their family on Sunday. Elle Marie Swenson was born at 1:14pm and is 7lbs, 2oz and 20 inches! She has a full head of hair and I think she looks like her Mom! Congrats to them!!
