The First Letter of your Name MEME "M"

I was tagged by Carebear with this "The First Letter of Your Name" meme, should be interesting to see what will be the first thing that comes to mind.
This should be easy, just use the first letter of your name to answer the questions. They have to be real answers though, nothing made up and you can't use your own name as an answer. So I won't be using Matt for any of my answers but they will all start with the "M"

New Family Fall Picture

Well we succeeded through all the challanges of getting a group photo.
We battled the sun, a couple of location changes, some extra kids playing in the background and the freezing cold.
I think all things being considered it turned out very well.

Dudley the crow makes is debut!

Friday was Kohl's first big acting break, we sat on pins and needles in anticipation.
His Kindegarten class have been working on a play and today was the grand performance.
It started with everyone telling a joke, Kohl's was
When do ghosts play tricks on one another?
On April Ghouls' Day, LOL
After the kids did there jokes they sang their favorite song "Don't Laugh At Me"
Then came the big show, here is Kohl dressed up as Dudley (left) with his crow buddies eating the farmers corn. He did a fantastic job you could feel the crow. The play was all about building the kids confidence and I can say it achieved the plan. I was shocked I expected a little 10-15 minute skit but this show needed an intermission, and was over an hour and a half, these kids did alot of work for sure. Great Job Kohl!

Blog of the Month Award

Still being new to blogging it's exciting when fellow bloggers appreciate your work and leave comments on your posts. It makes you feel good to know there are people out there that make a point of visiting your site to see what you have going on. I got an extra special surprise today when I recieved a blog of the month award from a great blogging buddy Carebear at Rantings of a Woman.

Blond Sisters

There is a blond at her office and she receives a phone call saying her father had died earlier that morning. She was very upset and her boss ran into the room saying, "That's terrible! You don't have to stay here, it's not right. Go home, comfort your family." The blond says between sniffles, "No but thank you for the offer. I'll stay here and try to keep my mind of it." After lunch the blond's boss comes in to check on her. He is most shocked when he sees her more upset that she was earlier that same day. "What's the matter?!" asked the boss in shock. "Well I just called my sister, and her dad died too!"

He's big, dressed in red and can sing, dance and do Karaoke he's Santa Claus and finally after about 4 years of wanting him in our home he is here. Every year we would see this guy in the stores and every year we would say we should get one but we'd get caught up in buying all our Christmas gifts and the season would come and go and we wouldn't get singing Santa. Well this year when we were in Moncton shopping we came across the jolly 'ol fella at Kent and I decided we wouldn't let another year go by wishing we had this decoration. You know what we got a super deal on it to, it was tagged at 89.99 but we knew Walmart had them for 68.88 so we took him to the service desk at Kent and they called over to Walmart and got the competition price and just to boot gave us 10% off the price to what a steal. This guy is a ton of fun if you love Christmas decorating you definitely should go out and get one of these guys.

The Storm!

We had a tropical storm hit our area last night/this morning, Noal packed winds up to 140kmh and we thought we escaped any major damage but to my surprise when I looked out Jay's window into the back yard this morning I noticed a section of the fence was knocked down.
I thought well that's not so bad ...Than Jay said someone stole our trampoline!.\
The realization of what happened hit me and from the angle I was at I couldn't see where it went. I rushed outside and was relieved to see that it hadn't gone far and didn't do any damage. You can see how close it was to the neigbors truck and another 10' it would of hit their motorhome. Very lucky for sure, Jay and Carrie gave me an hand and we took the trampoline apart and put it in the basement for the winter. The winds were still at full strength so it wasn't easy to take apart.

The best blonde joke ever?

Two blonde girls were working for the city public works department.
One would dig a hole and the other would follow behind her and fill the hole in. They worked up one side of the street, then down the other, then moved on to the next street. Working furiously all day without rest, one girl digging a hole, the other girl filling it in again.

An onlooker was amazed at their hard work, but couldn't understand what they were doing. So he asked the hole digger, 'I'm impressed by the effort you two are putting in to your work, but I don't get it? Why do you dig a hole, only to have your partner follow behind and fill it up again?'

The hole digger wiped her brow and sighed, 'Well, I suppose it probably looks odd because we're normally a three-person team. But today the girl who plants the trees called in sick.'

Today is my youngest son's birthday, he is turning 3, now he has already had a party on the weekend back home in Moncton but we still need to have some fun today. He came down to work to see me this morning and we went into the restaurant for a piece of birthday ice-cream cake and some balloons and a new fur real pet (Leo the leopard), now Trin can get her bear back. LOL. After Zellers we went over to McDonalds for lunch and when he went up to the school he got a birthday gift from his friend Diane. We were planning to have a nice supper and cake for supper time but we had an emergancy flood in the house so that kind of put a damper on that end of things but we did manage to get the cake in and a gift from us a new cars table and chair set so he can work with mom in the office during the day, should be lots of fun there. This was a memerable birthday indeed, thanks buddy.
