Endings and Beginnings

Hello all. It has been a crazy couple weeks for us and I have neglected the blog. So I'll play catch up and fill ya in on what's been going on.

Madeline had a fun birthday and ended up having 3 small birthday parties. One with just us on her birthday, one with my family who lives in Britt and a party last weekend with Trav's family in Milo. She did not get sick of us singing Happy Birthday and opening presents. I promise I will post pics soon.

My grandpa, Lester Gabrielson, passed away at the age of 90. He led a long, happy life but it was still sad to say goodbye. My dad and aunts and uncle are very sad and my thoughts and prayers are with them still.

The blessing of a funeral is being able to see family who live far away. We enjoyed the time spent catching up.

Last weekend we went to see Trav's family and go to the Shiners Circus. Madeline and my niece Katelyn rode the elephants. All of the girls liked the clowns, especially Zella. She also loved the tigers and kept growling at them.

We had a great time!

The most exciting news I have to share is that Travis got a promotion at work and will now be the Director of Marketing. He has worked so hard and I am so proud of him!!! He will do marketing for all 20 Co-ops and both feed mills that 5 Star owns. We are really excited for this new job. He will get to do something he loves for a company he respects. I'm excited that he'll get a company car...especially now that gas is so high.

I will end this long, rambling post with a quote from Madeline...

We were playing circus and she growled really loud at Zella. She turned to me and said, "What was that growl all about?". Such a goofball.

More later,
