Dec 8 2007



I slept in today and I still got up before Scott.



I couldn't sit down to eat breakfast because the kitty was too busy going crazy.



Scott suprisingly gets up not too much later.



Scott has to go to school on a Saturday. Now he knows how I feel.



I go over to Cevonne's new place.



She hasn't finished unpacking yet.



She gets bored with that so she reads me a story.



She doesn't know where Olive Garden is so I show her.



After seeing how far away Olive Garden is she decides to apply at Buca which is much closer to where she lives.



It is so cold in her apartment so we make tea.



We try to fix the heater ourselves. Only 2 hours later does it decide to start working again.



Scott is finally done with school so we go pick him up.



We make dinner quickly before all the punks come over.



Cevonne wants to see what our house is like when there is a show going on so we wait until everyone arrives.



It's getting late. I call Ben who's in town to see what's up.



We go over to see Ben and Jordan.



Most of the night is spent looking up things on Ben's computer.



Cevonne and I listen patiently as the boys talk about computers.



Jordan works on her drawings.



Cevonne turns into cyclops.



Ben seems tired so we leave.



After dropping off Cevonne, Scott and I see a kitty digging in the garbage. We take him home.



We take the cat up to Savanah's room to feed him.



Later we introduce Hex to the new kitty which we named Cat Power.



Hex is literally a "scaredy cat" and hides under the bed.

After the new kitty breaks some dishes and bites Scott in the arm, I finally go to bed.

I told you my life was more interesting.

It's Beginning to Look a Lot Like...

While driving through the Linden Hills neighborhood with the trees all lit, Meadow said, "It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas. Oh that's what the song means!" Since it was the weekend after Thanksgiving we had to make that a reality. We decorated our little place with the Christmas decorations that made the cut in our downsize. You didn't think we'd get rid of our collection of nutcrackers? Did you? My good friend and realtor Nate invited us to his companies Christmas party. Meadow was super excited. Upon walking in they had her favorite cutouts for photo ops. Meadow was also super pumped to pick her own cookies. First we ate said cookies. While waiting for our turn to see Santa Meadow wrote him a letter. Both kids did great. Though none of them smiled. Nate later asked me, "Is Santa smiling?" Indeed he was not. We were number 87. I'm sure he was done with smiling by number 50.

Brooke's Always Productive Vol. 978

  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 complaining, but I love our small footprint condo lifestyle. Do not miss our big old house. N

Sisters, a Brother and Walking Chicago

  Summer always seems to mean one thing: weddings. Whether I'm shooting or attending, we're bound to end up at a few every year.  This time around we were heading down to Chicago from my big sister Katrina's nuptials. I feel like all our vacations are centered around a wedding or something wedding related. I wish we could go on a vacation without having to worry about being somewhere.   It also means a few repetitive trips down I-94. There aren't nearly enough unique stops off the interstate. One outlier is Foster Cheese Haus , the only organic Wisconsin cheese shop I know of. Run by the folks behind Castle Rock Organic Farms , we always try to stop by. Unfortunately for us they were closed on Wednesdays, but at least we got to spy on their darling garden out front.    Brooke and I arrived in Necedah. We decided to stop at Brooke's sister Brittany's home along the way to cut the ride in half and get her dressed hemmed.   In
