A Post-Christmas Necedah Pit-Stop

After spending a night in Cudahy, Jabba the Hut, Scott and I headed back home. 

Brittany and I drew one another's names for Christmas. We thought we would stop by their house on the way home to exchange gifts. 

After being in the car for 12 hours yesterday I thought it would be nice to take a break from driving too.

Meadow liked playing with Marina's toys. 

Marina liked stealing Meadow's socks.

Marina played for the camera the entire time we were there. She even knew where the best lighting was.

Marina is so close to walking. She's already standing on her own.


But not quite yet.

She was even interested in me or maybe it was just my camera.

Marina also liked using Meadow to get herself up.

Why hello there little baby niece.


Marina got to open her gift first.

A new walker. Ooo.

Ikea gifts. I guess you've got to please the masses. Oh, and there's Jeff. He gave each of us a home brew for Christmas. 

I'm really excited that his business is doing well! You know you need one of his awesome NES controller iPhone docks.

Brittany and Marina made me an ornament with Marina's handprint.

Brittany got lots of stuff for making pies.

Wow, I'm so good at listening to what Brooke tells me Brittany wants.

Scott got a book about vaccines and a spice/coffee grinder.

The cousins played some more.

Also known as the strangle hug.

I was dreading getting back into the car. I wanted to stay longer but we were getting hungry for dinner.

Brittany said there was a Chinese buffet in Tomah.

It sounded really good, but by Minneapolis and even Cudahy standards it was just OK. I guess it's a nice alternative to Culver's or Foster Cheese Haus.

Once we got home Meadow opened her gifts. She got a new sled...

...a tiger hat from the neighbors, a puzzle from us...

...moose pajamas and pants.

You know every kid loves getting clothing for Christmas. Our neighbors are so nice. We love the two hats they got us for Christmas.

I pulled her around the house in the sled.

Agua the lamb even tagged along.

Baby loves the PJs.

Over the River & Through the Woods to Grandmothers House We Clean

My mom had wanted us to come down to my grandparents home to clean for months. Unfortunately a busy summer had kept us away. We finally made it a week after our honeymoon ended. We slept at my parents home in Cudahy before heading down to Racine.

We got home from our trip on Tuesday and left for Milwaukee on Thursday. It was almost like an extended vacation.

Before leaving the cities we stopped and had dinner at Foxy Falafel. It was pretty good and I like that she uses sprouted chickpeas. 
I never knew my grandparents on Poppyseed Tuska's side so Grandma and Grandpa Wojcik were a special part of my life. They both passed away last year after living nearly 90 wonderful years. 
Their home was always a wonderfully warm and inviting place. The perfect place to spend your Christmas Eve in front of a fire place.
Since it's going to be sold, Brooke and I took on the massive task of organizing and cleaning the home.

When Scott told me his mom wanted us to clean his grandparents house I …

Honeymoon: Locks, Falls and a Damn Ankle

Once we decided to exit stage Mackinac, we had to decide what to do asap.

Broken Bones and Labor Day

As you can see I am wearing a sling. Why you ask? Well it all started Thursday morning when I being the nice person that I am decided to help out Scottie and his roomates move into their new house. Everyone had gone back to their old house to get more stuff and I stayed behind to finish unpacking things out of my car. I was walking back to my car and thought it would be faster if I went in between a trailer and a van. Being the clumsy person that I am I somehow tripped in the process, ripping my jeans as well. Not thinking I had broken my arm I continued to carry things into to the house. My arm did hurt a little, but I thought it was no big deal. I had to leave for work. When I got home I noticed a huge bump on my elbow, I became worried at this point and called my mom. She said it was probably just bruised. I put ice on it as I was driving, when I got to the mall I saw the bump had gotten bigger. I was really concerned now so I thought I would go to first aid and see if someone ther…
