On The Eighteenth Day of Advent We Saw Santa Claus

We took Meadow to the 8th floor of Macy's in downtown Minneapolis to see Santa's workshop and visit Santa. 


Meadow enjoyed watching all the elves. 

Macy's hasn't changed this display since they bought out Marshall Field's. When it was Marshall Field's (and earlier Dayton's) the display changed annually.

I don't think Meadow understood the whole thing.

Then we waited in line to see Santa.

Meadow was dressed in her reindeer outfit. She didn't mind Santa. She really wanted to eat the bells on his sleeve. We couldn't get her to smile either.

They actually let you take two shots with your own camera for free. Even with that policy the lady rushed me.

We found a book in the giftshop of an elf that looks just like Meadow.

We should've bought it.

With Spring Comes Biking

Whenever daylight savings changes I flip the mattress. (I know I'm a little late) Every new season I change the duvet cover.  Scott actually helps me this time. Yup, I'm cool like that. I was a little worried we had too much dough so we got out every pan that could be used for muffins. I was wrong, we only needed two pans. By the time we actually eat "breakfast," at least that's what Brooke calls it, Peanut has already finished most of his Organmix. I know, we spoil the little runt. Speaking of Brooke's fascination with breakfast, she will not eat anything that resembles lunch for her first meal of the day. So, even on the laziest Sunday, breakfast comes before lunch. As you can see Brooklyn really loved her muffin-fast -- even if it was already 1 p.m. While I finish up some dishes Brooke cleans the kitchen. Did you know that Brooke is a cleaning expert (really, she'll clean your house or cook for you. H

Bu Bye Chicago, Hello Milwaukee

The morning after the wedding we had leftover bagels for breakfast. ...and Brooke looked out the window. Haha that's not me, that's Emma. See what I mean? My own husband can't tell the difference.  By the way did you know we had roommates in our hotel room? I also ate leftover pie from the wedding.  Despite having to be quiet at night we enjoyed sharing our room with Tyler, Emma and Olive. It was kind of like a big sleepover. Then we had to check out and head to Pilsen for lunch. Tyler had been talking up Nuevo Leone for a while now, so we skipped Burrito House this time. Next time it's a must. That's two times in a row that I didn't go to Burrito House.  Pilsen is one my favorite Chicago neighborhoods, so I was easily cajoled. I'm not exactly sure how they do their laundry with the machine facing the window. Tyler, Emma and Olive got lost or something, so we walked around for a
