On The Third and Fourth Day Of Advent We Got A Tree and Decorated It

This year I said we should actually cut down our own tree. It seems they are usually cheaper this way too. 

When we arrived and saw that they were $35 I recollected that we may have actually spent less the year before.

It actually seemed tougher to make a decision.

We basically walked around for a while until we could pick the right one.

Meadow enjoyed touching all the mini trees.

She didn't enjoy standing up in her snow pants.

Then we finally decided on one.

 I cut off some stragglers and brought it to the car, strapped it down and went back to Minneapolis.

On the weekends they have Santa and animals and crafts. If we do this again next year we will have to come on the weekend to make it more worth the drive. 

We each decorated a tree. Well, Brooke decorated Meadow's red wonder.

Next year she's on her own.

Another tree forest.

Meadow was so excited for our tree forest that she ran around with sunglasses, a diaper and socks.

Backcountry Camping with Kids in Theodore Roosevelt National Park

Day 1  Back in May I stumbled upon Theodore Roosevelt National Park. I had no idea there was a National Park in North Dakota and that it was the northern end of the Badlands. Usually our summer vacations coincide with Scott's work trips. Since he didn't have any this summer I thought we should take advantage of actually taking a vacation. What, my workcations are always classics? I suppose a second real vacation this year wouldn't hurt. We definitely have more time than normal. As long as we took Covid-19  precautions and avoided people. We finally settled on a time to go. Blake joined us so we borrowed our dad's van so we could ride together. Scott had just driven from Michigan the day before. Blake had met my parents in Wisconsin to get the van and then drove from Duluth to pick us up. I offered to drive since I literally only drive twice a month.  I was still pretty tired from a long drive home. Don't @ me for doing this, as the kids say. Our kitty has been havin

Fox Valley Thanksgiving 2022

As always, we made the trip to Little Chute and the Fox Valley for Thanksgiving. Since we don't eat Thanksgiving dinner until the evening. I suggested this year we drive on Thanksgiving day instead of leaving the night before.  First thing when we arrived, G.G. was already giving Meadow gifts. My mom is always spoiling her.   Then we were off to Brittany and Jeff's for Thanksgiving fun. Theo got the longest piece of cheese. Marina showing us her island on Animal Crossing.  I made some maple whipped cream just before everyone arrived. All the cousins wanted to do at first was watch each other game. Theo stayed with us when the kiddos finally started to play something other than Switch. Eventually Theo warmed up to playing with his cousins.  Look at this dumb picture. At least that's what G.G. would say. Chelsea surprised the kids with this cute cookie decorating kit that looks like Thanksgiving leftovers.  Theo just watched. Silly little guy. This cranberry bread that Britt
