That's The Way We Get By

It seems like everytime I go somewhere I don't want to return back to Minneapolis, I always seem to be leaving something that I love. It was nice to get away from my usual repeative schedule that I have every week. I love that vacation feeling, even if it is only 2 days long. Chicago is the new Minneapolis. I remember how excited I was to go to the cities and I couldn't wait to move there. Now I can't wait to move to Chicago. I think I get bored with things too easily.



We made a long cold trip across the city of Chicago to get my wallet. I wouldn't have even known it was the super bowl if I hadn't gone down this weekend. The whole city was pumped for the Bears, people were literally running everywhere to see the kickoff. I played wii for the first time. It just made me miss playing golf, which made me miss summer. It didn't take many pictures this weekend because it was so gosh darn cold.



Things have been good otherwise. I really like school. I know I talk about it a lot, but for once I'm actually learning things that apply to my life. I don't remember anything I learned in English or math. I eat healthier and read nutrition labels. C'mon how many classes have you taken where your assignment was to make these.



I finally bought my ticket to London, it's not all talk anymore I'm actually going for real. I'm excited and nervous at the same time.

My dad bought me darkroom equipment. I can't wait to start developing my own pictures. I've been wanting to do so for so long.

Meadow goes back to school Brooke's Always Productive Vol. 978

Meadow had her first day of school on Wednesday. Of course it also happens to be below zero.   Along with Meadow going back to school and needing masks, I also made her some headbands and attached buttons to hold the straps.  Perfect so her little ears don't get hurt. The kids requested Chocolate Rye Pancakes for this Valentine's breakfast. So sweet. In two ways. I guess Brooke got Meadow a Valentine's shirt. Nope, I got her the fleece lined leggings with hearts on the knees. She already had the shirt. Mmmm...the kids' favorite. You know it's cold outside when you can't see out the window.  Meadow was up to her crafty self and made Theo a batman mask. She made a wrong cut and patched it up otherwise it looks awesome. I made Brooke some peanut butter-peanut butter cup-chocolate ice cream for Valentine's day. It was delicious. When you live in a small place your bedroom becomes your sewing room. I also prefer sewing standing up.  I'm not sure if she's

Theo @ 3 Years

Our little love Theodore. He's not afraid to show his emotions and has a kind heart. He's the best hugger you've ever met.  He is 3'1" tall and weighs 30 lbs. He loves being outside, building things, helping us cook, playing video games, super heroes, his baby and blanket. He loves to pretend to be Link and Batman and Lightning McQueen is his jam. In the last year he's become a Papa's boy. I love the little runt. Most of the time. He still looks up to Meadow and loves everything she likes. At least when Meadow's not picking on him. He's gotten pickier with eating. Loves breakfast but not a fan of dinner. But he'll still try something when asked. Meadow is his guide and he'll basically eat what she eats. He's really picked up talking in the last year to full sentences and stories. He has a little bit of a stutter. Think it runs from Meadow to Theo. It's so much fun talking to my little guy. He hates getting his diaper changed and also

The North Minneapolis Tornado of 2011

Brooke and the cat woke up only to look out the window, searching for the alley cat. An afternoon shift at the Best Buy. A normal morning. It started so peaceful. I'm not even supposed to work on Sundays. Something was off, Brooke was making good oatmeal. She had to take the car out to Long Lake. It wasn't going to be a normal day.
