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.

Gardening Mama (or How to Hang Out with High School Friends)

Some of Scott's friends from high school that he hasn't seen in like 7 years were stopping by later to see our house. We quickly cleaned up the place, breaking one of our favorite mugs on the way.

A Day Berry Picking and Canoeing Around Grey Cloud Island

I've always made fun of Camelbak backpacks, but recently we got one for our hiking backpack and then one for Meadow's birthday present. At a garage sale I even picked up an old Camelbak.
Meadow got some birthday money from her Tuska grandparents. When I asked her what she wanted she picked a hiking backpack. We lucked out on finding one that holds a water resivor. I told her the bag was going to get heavier with water, but she still loved it. 

Even with it being the end of July already, we still had to get our annual berry picking in. Sadly our usual berry farm experienced hail damage in June and was closed for the summer.

We settled on going back to Sam Kedem Nursery Garden.
We hadn't been to Sam Kedem's for a few years and with our normal berry picking field out of service it just made sense.
The blueberries were inside of these nets and I kept getting stuck on the net. 
The berries were super tiny and not as plentiful as our usual place.
Meadow was loving her new back…

A Few Thoughts to Pass the Time

I'm sitting at the library, my new hang out besides random coffee shops. Class isn't for another 2 hours and I've finished all my homework. There's a guy running across holding his pants up and rush hour is just setting in.

I never realized how weird Minnesotians actually are until I saw American Idol last night. They were doing auditions in Minneapolis, which Randy liked to call Minnehopeless. I thought it was just the culinary students that we're weird at my school, but no it's the whole state. The majority of the people that I know here are not actually from Minnesota, only one that truely is seems ok to me. Maybe I'm just like them but I don't want to admit it.

School is alright. It keeps me busy. I like that some classes only have 10 students. Everyone in my Nutrition class eats healthy and reads the ingredient list but me. At least I get to take home everything I make in my baking class.



Summer seems so far away. I need to find a place to live bef…
