The Second Annual Pumpkin Carving Night

On the Wednesday night a week before Halloween we did our annual pumpkin carving with Cevonne and Jose. 

Cevonne was excited to make margaritas before she realized they didn't have any ice. 

Then she took my camera and started shooting up the place.

I think she was still disappointed we had no ice on the premises.

Somehow we decided on pizza for dinner. JT couldn't decide where to order it from.


Madeline was sad she didn't get a pumpkin. 

We ordered Toppers for dinner. Scott said, "I don't think I've ever eaten this sober."

I was pretty full.

She was also showing off Cevonne's Trinidad and Tobago t-shirt.

Then we all set to work on our gut scooping while Madeline looked at us like we were weirdos. 

Both Scott and I had come up with better faces than last year.

I was in it, to win it or at least make decent showing.

Scott actually spent more then 5 minutes on his. 


JT and I just kept on carving.


I think I was actually the last one to finish.

Jose is better skilled than us with the shaving part.

That's his on the left, then Brooke, me and Cevonne last.

They looked great all lit up.

We made the photo cuter by putting Madeline in front of them. 

And then we tried to do a family photo that didn't work out so well. 

The lens hood blocked part of the flash.

Christmas of America

Earlier this week a certain naughty kitty decided he didn't like my puzzle and took apart half of it. I put tin foil across to stop him from doing it again. I heard cats don't like tin foil. Is that actually true or just a rumor?  Brooke cleaned our upstairs closet and found two Chia Pets. Neither one of them are Chia Obama , though Homer does look awfully presidential in this pose. They haven't been growing so she created some makeshift greenhouses. My pops came back to pick up my mom and help me with my 1920's toilet. A week later and no leaks. Looks like we did a good job. This gave me an excuse to try out my Christmas present from my in-laws.    Then we headed to the Mall of America. I'm pretty sure we are the only ones we know that actually shop here. I worked here at a spin-off store of Forever 21 when I first moved to Minnesota.  I feel no shame for shopping at this monstrosity. It often has the best sales rack of any

Camping The Driftless

Last month we went to a birthday party at Choo Choo Bob's Train Store . Since then Meadow (or should I say Scott and I) have been hooked on getting Meadow more trains and tracks. I found this awesome deal on Craigslist for a giant bag of trains for only $20. The best part of being a parent is getting to live out your childhood dreams. Craigslist makes that a lot easier.

Honeymoon But With Kids: Duluth Sailing and Madeline Island Beach Days

Day 1 Exactly 10 years ago Scott and I took a 10 day trip to Upper Michigan. While we were on this trip I said we should do this again with our kids in 10 years. Flash forward 10 years and here we are. We are following our same route and visiting the same places with a few additions. Thankfully we had these two kids in the preceding 10 years and they're road trip pros at this point. The start of the trip takes us to Duluth. We had planned to leave in the morning and arrive around noon. While packing up the car Scott noticed our car battery was dead.  I asked our neighbor for a jump and we were soon back on track. We never left our dome light on in 4 years at the condo, but somehow have managed to do this twice since moving. I guess a dark garage will do that.  Once that was fixed we had to figure out the puzzle of fitting 3 bikes onto our bike rack. By the time we were off we were getting hungry. Scott has always wanted to try Tobie's to see what the hype was all about.  After
