On The Twenty-Second Day Of Advent We Saw An Old Friend

The next morning we had plans to meet up with our wedding officiator for breakfast. Meadow thought we were going to walk there.

We were going to Comet, so that wasn't possible. This guy loves Milwaukee.

Olger was a little late (had car troubles), but that smile showed up eventually.

We had some late breakfast.

We caught up on life. Olger is finishing up med school. I'm proud of this guy.

Olger had some chores to do, so we went our separate ways.

My cousin Katie is the head pastry chef at a new doughnut shop, Holey Moley Coffee and Doughnuts in the Third Ward. Of course we had to go check it out.


I got the S'mores doughnut.

Mine was egg nog flavor and very good.

After this Meadow took a nap while we finished Orange is the New Black. Then we, as in Scott, drove the five-ish hours to Grand Rapids.

Christmas Eve in Duluth & Christmas at Home

Blake decided he wasn't going to travel to our parents for Christmas this year and asked if we wanted to spend Christmas with him. Scott wanted to be home for Christmas day so we went up a couple days before Christmas Eve to spend a few days in Duluth. We had big plans for Christmas morning, but I also didn't want to miss a stay in Duluth. Somehow we always end up in Duluth around Christmas time. It would have been weird to skip it this year. We haven't visited Duluth much this year with COVID. It was nice to be up here. Both of our households have been very careful and this was a much better option than going to Little Chute. We haven't been around other people without masks since October. It felt a little strange at first. No monster pancakes this time. Blake's bed and breakfast had waffles made with a vintage Nordic Ware waffle iron. Yum!

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.

It's Almost Christmas, But Where's the Snow

  We've started enjoying our nightly walks to look at Christmas lights in the neighborhood. This one was pretty creative.  I guess the owner delivers Christmas trees or something.
