Hanging with Caribbeans in the Dead of Winter

Good morning sunshine.

Someone learned how to crawl last week.

Meadow is the queen of stuffed animals.

We decided to take out most of these since she wants to sleep or chew everyone.

I asked Scott to make breakfast again. 

It's what I do.

Meadow really only likes to be in the jumper for 5 minutes. I wish she would stay in it longer. 

Brooke and the babe were keeping an eagle eye on my cooking.

We hadn't had aebelskievers in a long time. Scott complained that they were just complicated pancakes and complained the whole time while he made them.

Because they all burnt. I soon realized I forgot the cooking spray.

These are pretty delicious. They're kind of like little filled-pancake donuts.

During breakfast Cevonne texted asking if we wanted to come over.

Meadow waking up at the same time every night has made me a zombie.

Lately Meadow has discovered shadows. She is easily entertained when I make shadow puppets. Today she realized she can make them too. 

She kept trying to catch them. 

That's a creepy shadow little bear. She's going to frighten herself.

Since starting solids her poops have been thicker and much more explosive. We usually have to change her clothes 3 times a day. This time she needed a bath. 

After Meadow took a nap we headed through the crazy blowing snow to Cevonne and Jose's. 

Madeline was very interested in Meadow. 

While the guys made food in the kitchen us girls Skyped with Amanda. We got to finally "meet" Alayna.

We brought over chips and avocados and made a massive amount of gaucamole. 

Beer and guac. Not a bad dinner.

We continued to Skype with Amanda. Her sound wasn't working so she had to type out her responses. 


While Scott was making gaucamole, Jose made pineapple upside down cake. I have never actually made pineapple upside down cake. Jose perfected it quite well. 

I could really go for this as I type.

The wind was pretty bad and it was getting really cold. We debated on sleeping over.

This winter is the worst ever.

We all watched Super Why before Madeline went to bed. 

JT conked out while Madeline was enthralled.

Meadow fell asleep too. After awhile we decided to brave the weather and head home.

Morgan Comes to Minneapolis and We Go to Southern Minnesota

Another Marine on St. Crox-Stillwater Adventure

It's our favorite time of year: berry picking season. I think that's more of Brooke and Meadow thing, but I'll go along with it. Meadow has been asking to go for weeks. I'm not sure how she knew about it since she hasn't gone since she was a wee little one.  I made a giant breakfast before our adventure, plaintain and avocado toast, hash, eggs, cherries and strawberries. Lots and lots of blueberries as far as the eye can see. We went back to our go to berry picking farm, The Berry Patch. "Look a tiny one for me!" Meadow did an awesome job picking. She helped the whole time when she wasn't eating any. I complained and ate the whole time. We quit when the bucket was this high. Apparently we forgot that you pay by the bucket and not pint. We could have easily gotten another pint in there. As I was taking Meadow to the bathroom I noticed the raspberries looked really good. We decided at $5 a pint we would onl

Not My Normal Thanksgiving

Due to work and school I wasn't able to go home for Thanksgiving, but I survived because my sister"s" came up to be with me. We made chicken instead of turkey. I made pie but the dog ate it. Morgan was wonderful and made everything. We were able to eat for 3 days. We did a lot of other things and I still managed to budget my money. It really stinks to be completly broke, I've never been this poor in my entire life. All my money is going towards rent which leaves me with absolutly nothing. I dream of the day my loan check comes. My battery in my camera died so I missed a lot of great photo opportunities. I got a new job doing stock at American Eagle. Menards found out before I told them. I've never seen my manager so sad. I did a lot of knitting during my "Thanksgiving break". I made a scarf for a girl at work and a washcloth for Brittany. I decided I'd model the scarf. I'm still working hard on Scott's sweater. I'm probab
