Practice Time with Baby Madeline

Again I enjoy my breakfast alone while Scott sleeps. 

And once again I'm awoke to photograph my now very pregnant wife.

I can't believe the baby could be here in as little as 2 weeks. 

I'm pretty particular about getting the kitchen cleaned up before going to bed, but after dinner the night before we headed to Uptown and didn't get back until late. I got started on cleaning up. 

Scott called his dad for Father's Day.

Only to talk to my mother. Father Tuska was on an errand.

Despite more rainy days than sunny ones our garden seems to be doing okay. 

Cevonne and Jose are  moving out to Boonesville at the end of the month. They had been spending the weekend painting their new place. Apparently having Madeline  there was too distracting so they asked if we could hang out with her while they worked. 

I'm going to miss having them live in St. Paul. We really don't cross the river too much except to see them. 

They were both very excited to see my belly. 

Madeline was sad to see her rents leave for the day. I promised we'd be fun.

Madeline was supposed to take a nap, but she must have been too excited to see me to want to sleep. 

We decided to go for a walk. Before leaving Madeline jumped on her fuzzy butterfly rocker.

I thought she might fall asleep if we took her for a walk. Especially after being in Venezuela I thought she'd be bored. Nope, she spent the second half babbling the whole time. 



Clearly not tired at all.

I thought if I laid down she would too. Nope that didn't work either. 

Eventually I got her down for a nap. Then it was more play time when she got up. 

Cevonne said she would come home "early" so we didn't think about dinner. After Madeline went to bed for the night we were starving. Scott ordered us some Luce. 

I had to wear Madeline's bib on my dress so I wouldn't spill on my belly. 

Around ten Cevonne finally returned. I hadn't seen her since her graduation so we chatted a bit before heading home. 

While Brooke went straight to bed, I made the mixed berry ice cream I'd been prepping for two days. I thought If I let the berries sit for one more day they might start to taste like the metal bowl they were in.

It's Almost Christmas, But Where's the Snow

  We've started enjoying our nightly walks to look at Christmas lights in the neighborhood. This one was pretty creative.  I guess the owner delivers Christmas trees or something.

Christmas Eve in Duluth & Christmas at Home

Blake decided he wasn't going to travel to our parents for Christmas this year and asked if we wanted to spend Christmas with him. Scott wanted to be home for Christmas day so we went up a couple days before Christmas Eve to spend a few days in Duluth. We had big plans for Christmas morning, but I also didn't want to miss a stay in Duluth. Somehow we always end up in Duluth around Christmas time. It would have been weird to skip it this year. We haven't visited Duluth much this year with COVID. It was nice to be up here. Both of our households have been very careful and this was a much better option than going to Little Chute. We haven't been around other people without masks since October. It felt a little strange at first. No monster pancakes this time. Blake's bed and breakfast had waffles made with a vintage Nordic Ware waffle iron. Yum!

Yardwork, Ikea and Pumpkins

My new parents-in-law got us a dehydrator for the wedding. Knowing we were going to be cleaning up the garden and going to farmer's market, we took a gander at our millionth kitchen device during breakfast.   Scott added granola to his oatmeal.  The oatmeal was rather bland, just the way Brooke likes it.   Scott was actually cleaning up so I had to take a quick photo of him as proof.  Scott told me he was, "putting a blanket down for Peanut," while singing. During the winter months peanut needs a warm place to peer through the window. Seeing as it was nearly November, I setup his blanket for him. Seeing as the farmers market season is dwindling down, we headed to the market...once again. The close proximity to the cities central farmer's market has to be one of the best assets of living in NoMi. We were both amazed by the bounty of produce still on sale. We quickly filled up our first bag and took it back to the car.
