Oh Homeownership

Our morning ritual of Meadow and I making breakfast while Scott sleeps in. 

We haven't had bagel and egg sandwiches in a long time so I put it on the menu this week.

These are always a good quick breakfast.

This is Meadow's favorite place in the whole house.

She thinks she's a cat. She drags her chair all the way from the dining room to the front window. It's probably a good thing we never got around to refinishing the floors.

Since our main floor bathroom is still under construction that means no bath for Meadow. I filled up our kitchen sink and she refused to go in.

She got a shower instead. Every time I give her a bath she points to her towel and says, "Baby!" I then wrap her up, rock her and sing, "Oh, Mama's little baby." It's the one time she lets me hold her like this so I enjoy the moment. 

I had to prime and paint the bead board we're putting in the bathroom.


Meanwhile Meadow refused to get dressed so she helped me change our sheets. 

By helping I mean we made forts.


We did this for awhile.

Then she wanted to get tucked into bed.

For lunch we had zucchini and bacon pasta.

After I put Meadow down I started painting the ceiling in Scott's office/our closet. 

I put a few coats of paint on the side that is going behind the radiator.

The night before I went to Aldi (since it's so close) and picked up pretzels and chocolate chips. We've been eating the resulting pretzel-chocolate chip cookies all day.

Meadow has been extra clingy lately. I suspect she's teething. I needed to finish pricing stuff for the rummage sale and the only way to get it done was to put her in the Ergo.

"Make your moves,"said Scott giving us directions while taking photos.

After working on the bathroom for a few hours I made Morroccan-Spiced Pastitsio. I love this dish while Brooke thinks it's overindulgent.

It started to snow after dinner so Meadow and I went outside to play in the fresh snowflakes. We even went around the block on the sled. I love this little bug.

I tried to catch them after doing dishes. I followed their tracks all the way around the block and they were already inside when I caught up.

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
