Snowshoes and Other Stuff

I forgot to feed kitty this morning. Oops. 

Last night we had a pizza party and gift exchange at Tyler and Emma's. They got us a new dish drying rack. It was meant to replace the small one we have now, but I kind of like using two at a time.

That's cause she's ghetto.

I finally put in the storms above the fireplace. We've got new homesteaders to the south of us. They've been fixing up in the inside since summer. Looking forward to them fixing up the exterior come spring.

Our new Sunday tradition. Mac and Cheese for lunch.

Sorry abou the slightly blurry picture.

I wanted to go to try our snow shoes out at our neighboring park, Theo Wirth. Most of the golf course and park is designated to cross country skiing. The snow shoeing is on the mountain bike trails. 


Without leaves and other foliage you could spot buildings you never knew were abutted to the park.


Snowshoeing Theodore Wirth couldn't live up to last week's highway hike in Duluth.

We did end up crossing boundaries over to the skiing side. I was getting a little jealous watching the skiers whiz by.

I didn't know that there was a large pond on the golf course side of the park. I guess it's part of Bassett's Creek.

When we got home we warmed up with hot cocoa and heated up chocolate for dipping our Oreo truffles. 

Last night we got a snowman ornament from Olive. I think it's so cute that this made her think of us

We worked on the truffles while Scott prepped the dinner. 

I took a bath while Scott cooked. Dinner was taking a long time to make. We both weren't feeling well. I had a bad headache so we ended the night really early and went to bed after dinner.

Yup.

Brittany's Babyshower

We traveled to Wisconsin again, this time for my sisters baby shower. Luckily I have Friday afternoons off so we could leave by noon. We also picked up Brittany along the way. My mom made us dinner when we arrived and during dinner I discovered a Christmas present that wasn't given to me. Super cute cloth napkins.  Mama Gail made what Brooke and her siblings dubbed "craperole." It was some kind of pasta bake. I actually liked it. Brittany and I had gotten our pajamas on not realizing we picked out the same outfit. I can't wait until my belly is as big as hers. My parents are giving Brittany their old changing table. Jaspurr thought it was his bed. I thought it was a new TV stand. My dad thought he needed a diaper change. Now he's all clean. The next morning my dad made sausage and eggs for breakfast. Us girls had packed up and left for the shower before Scott woke up. I had to run off to Mr. Mike's shop to photograp

An Appalachian Hipcamp Road Trip: A MKE and O-HI-O pitstop on the way to Tawney Farm, West Virginia

Day 1  Scott had gotten a lucky gig to check out some off the beaten path campsites for Hipcamp. Our trip was going to bring us to the Appalachians. We packed our car full and headed east "early" Friday morning. Early for us is never that early, but at least we got out on the road at a decent hour. While driving through Madison we stopped at Cabela's to pick up a few more supplies that we would need. Our original plan was to make it to Indiana Sand Dunes tonight. Scott mentioned that if we drive through Milwaukee we could skip the Chicago tolls. I agreed and then he asked if we could stop in Cudahy to say hi to the folks. I said we might as well stay the night.  When we got there we went to Tsing Tao with my dad, my childhood favorite restaurant. It's in an old Ihop and has a great buffet at any time of the day.  Sorry Scott, I wasn't impressed. That's because your pretentious. Anyways, Meadow decided she didn't want t

Marina's Twin Cities Birthday Weekend

Our niece Marina was turing 11 and had one request: a weekend in Minneapolis with her favorite cousin, Meadow. Marina made these masks for them. You know this cat lover was excited.  We walked over to Kiniko Kids and they had a Ghibli cookbook.  Meadow wanted this mushroom hat.  Since ice skating season ended early we still wanted to get one last skate in.  Theo tried out his new skates, which needed some adjustments.
