On The Twenty-Fourth Day Of Advent We Celebrated Christmas Eve with Scott's Family

Even though Meadow had already had breakfast she wanted in on our French toast for second breakfast. What a little hobbit.

She is a short stack after all.

I didn't even bring any of Meadow's toys along because I knew she wouldn't play with them.

Most of the day we prepped Christmas Eve dinner. First task was whipping together some rolls.

The girls got dressed up for Christmas.


Even baby Cameron was festive.

Newborns always scared me. I thought that would have changed after having Meadow, but seeing one again, nope. 

I felt so certain holding Meadow, but I have to agree with Brooke. Now I know why my dad seemed hesitant to hold Meadow when she was a month old.

Grandma Tuska had a blast snapping pics of her grandbabies.

Simone found a new seat.


I love this little gal.

Ham, roasted brussels, homemade rolls and sweet potatoes. Oh and spinach and roasted beet salad.

Meadow's eating habits go in strange patterns. Last week she was on a hunger strike and this week she is eating everything. Well except for the sweet potatoes. She wouldn't eat those until her cousin started stealing them off her plate, then she realized they must be okay.

Simone pretty much only ate the sweet potatoes.

Cameron stuck to napping. No solids for a while.

After dinner the kids opened their gifts. We got Simone a pounding bench and Cameron a new book.


Meadow got some new clothes.

All the grandbabies got blankets and PJs from grandma and grandpa.


Meadow was all like, "Let me show you how this is done", while nearly missing Simone's fingers.

 I can't wait until Cameron is running around.


We all had spiked egg nog after Simone went to bed. Well not mom. My dad went straight to bed after drinking his. The booze must've gotten to him.

Meadow's new word is "Ew". After Cameron spit up Meadow kept saying ew to him.

Money DOES Buy Happiness

I got a wake up call when I realized all the loans I took out for school actually went for school. I'm only working part-time at Menards now which is just enough to pay the rent and bills. My phase of being poor wasn't really a phase, but actually permanent. I took out another loan so I would have extra cash to feed me (being poor is the best diet). I won't see that money for another month which means no time off for a Christmas break. I have to wait a few more days to find out if I even get Christmas Eve off. This is by far the sadest Christmas ever for me. It doesn't even feel like Christmas. Only one house on my street put lights up, I'm used to everyone in my whole town putting up lights. Plus we don't have a tree or any decorations and we haven't had any snow yet. I did get a Christmas present from Menards, 55 dollars in Menards money and this. In two weeks someone I love and care about very deeply will be in London for 5 months and I only get to s

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 the

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 c
