Happy Birthday Katie!

Tomorrow is my sister Katie's 17th birthday! She is such a funny girl. I remember when Katie was little and what a funny little girl she was. Katie was a very obedient little girl (she still is) she had to always be in bed by 9:00. I also remember riding bikes with her in our neighborhood in Poky and her yelling, "Wait for me Nicci!" I use to love to tease Katie. Katie also tagged along with Matt and I back in high school and most of the time leave us cracking up. I love you Katie and Happy Birthday!

I'M 23!!

January 14 was my birthday and I had a wonderful birthday! Matt came to my work and we had Panera for lunch. After work we met up with my family at Texas Roadhouse. I love steak!!! Next we went back to the Tietjens for some cake. My sweet mother made my favorite strawberry cake. Christa joined us as well for some cake. I love living so close to family!

This picture was taken at Crown Center on the ice rink. The woman next to my mom is our hilarious friend Rachel. She is the funniest girl to be around. The ward has the tradition to go ice-skating every year around Christmas time. It was really fun.

Kids Say the Funniest Things...

I love working with children. Its so fun to see them development and progress. They also say the most hilarious things, for example...
One little boy called me over to where he was playing and said "Ms. Nichole, he's aggravating me!" For a 3 year old to say such a big word, pretty impressive. I was blown away when he said that and so I asked him where we learned to say aggravating and he said, "My mother, she sometimes says that to me." Ha Ha
The boys in my class are just fascinated with the transformer characters they could tell you everything about Bumblebee and Optimus Prime. Well one little boy came in with a transformer back-pack and watch today and he says, "Ms. Nichole, do you like my transformer watch? It's made by Rolex!" Ha Ha... I'll have to look into that one.
