On the eighth day of Advent we hung with childhood friends and made a Christmas card

Despite the snow and cold we were meeting up with some of Scott's old friends for breakfast.

Meadow decided to wear her hand-me-down dress from Marina one last time.

They let us pick the place and we settled on Victor's 1959

It was really cold out, but Meadow didn't seem to mind.

I wish we came here more often. We actually put in offer in on a house in Kingfield, but it was scooped up by a cash buyer.

Krystal was excited to see and hold Meadow.

It was great seeing Jeremy and Krystal. Hopefully he gets his medical residency here. 

She started to get grumpy and was handed back to me. 

I guess we were all excited to eat we didn't take any photos of our food.

It wasn't pretty, but you can't go wrong with Cuban breakfast food. 

We had changed our minds for our Christmas card photo last minute. We decided to just have it be Meadow with a snowman, but the snow wasn't packable for making a snowman.

This was the runner-up for our Christmas card photo.

Meadow is getting this sled for Christmas. We needed to use it to have her sit in something.

I wasn't going to have her sit in single digit snow.

I was excited to have her try it. Then I convinced her it was all a dream and the sled didn't exist. 

For the next hour or so I turned this photo into a card.

I think it turned out pretty good. It was a big hit with the family.

I had plans to meet up with an old high school friend and left Meadow to have a Daddy/Daughter day.

We had a good time playing in her room.

I made tacos and ate a slice of pizza for lunch.

Cevonne and I were meeting with our friend Sarah at her house. I got lost on the way and Cevonne got stuck in the snow. 

Meadow is starting to like her jumper.

I bombarded them with the camera as soon as we arrived.

I taught you well, my lovely wife.

Meanwhile Meadow fell asleep on my lap while I worked on editing photos. Again.

The only time I get baby free time is during work. I was excited to have adult conversations and drink wine. 

Apparently Meadow and Brooke had a read-a-thon the night before.

Later on I ate more pizza for dinner and we watched our favorite show Bob's Burgers.

I had told Scott we were just going to hang out and that I would probably only be there for a few hours. We ended up talking and talking, catching up on years past. We have plans to get together again soon and I can't wait. 

When Brooke arrived home Meadow was back in her jumper. I swear she loves it.

Meadow has been leaking in her diapers at night lately. Doesn't matter if they are cloth or disposable. I have to admit we are both too tired/lazy to change her diaper at night. Sorry Meadow.

She's been going through her pajamas like crazy. I dug into a few sizes ahead and found this great number.

Cute.

I taught you well my lovely wife – oh Scott. Ha, ha.
How did Cevonne get stuck in the snow? Is that at her house?

Nice post. I'm glad I get email updates now...did I not before? How do I know if you respond to my comments?

Pampers and Huggies make a "sure-dry" diaper that's intended for nighttime. That's what we use on Nolan - and no leaks! Plus he has really sensitive skin so it helps soak everything up so he doesn't get rashes.

Let's Skate the Lake, of the Isles

Meadow was excited for our weekly adventure, but once she jumped in our bed she didn't want to get out.

St. Nick and A Long Solo Work Trip

  Meadow had been counting down for St Nick for weeks.  Sparkly play dough. I too love pre-gaming it mini-Christmas.

Pizza and Picasso Tiles

For Christmas Scott received Picasso tiles and they've been a hit with our family. I played with these quite a bit at Brooke's sisters house. Funny thing is that these kids have been mostly playing with them. That's OK with me. Since we got back from winter break the kids have been playing with their toys a lot more. Meadow's way more creative than me. I spent the majority of the day working on my backpack. It's turning out to be easier than I thought.  And another masterpiece. She has us send pics to Blake each time she builds something. Sorry little brother, you can't touch it. It is OK for you to go in the cardboard car, buddy. We were having Aaron and the kids over, but he had been held up a bit. So, we turned on the game and Meadow took a picture. We were supposed to have our annual Indian Turkey dinner, but the turkey hadn't defrosted in time. Instead we had Scott's famous homemade pizza. We'
