Pancakes and Pizza

I made cake for a work event on Friday. The first thing Meadow asks for in the morning is cake. I can't say no to that.

You can't say no? Ha.

Okay it was a tiny piece.

Meadow said, "I'm cold, I want to snuggle with Papa."

And she did that. Cute kid.

Meanwhile I needed to grind some flour to make our pancakes.

I kept on wondering where breakfast was. Then I figured she was making those pancakes. You know those.

Meadow loves to help me unload the dishwasher.

Next day I noticed her work.

Breakfast is weird if you really think about it.

Meadow got new glasses this week. She has a size bigger and her prescription has weakened slightly.

I think it's the opposite. Good parents, hey?

After a few weeks of our schedules not working out we finally had invited Anna and Aaron over for a playdate. I pulled out a bunch of Meadow's toys for the kids to play with.

She was excited to have all of her toys out.

I spent most of the day reading on the old smartphone. I was getting antsy for our friends to arrive.

Meadow also loved the Bumbo.

I read about Victorian Privy's until they arrived.

I made our trusty pizza crust before they arrived.

Brooke made cream cheese taco dip again.  And beer. We've had both a lot in the last month.

I didn't make the beer, but we did drink a few.

Meadow and Roman love chasing each other around.

They're always moving so fast that I can't get a clear pic.

Loads of veggie options and pepperoni. Only thing missing was some pineapple and basil.

Aaron's pizza was quite artistic.

While the rest of us finished eating the 'za Meadow was holding Lydia's hand. I missed it.

Then Meadow requested some music. She made everyone else dance until they were so tired that they had to leave.

Another Marine on St. Crox-Stillwater Adventure

It's our favorite time of year: berry picking season. I think that's more of Brooke and Meadow thing, but I'll go along with it. Meadow has been asking to go for weeks. I'm not sure how she knew about it since she hasn't gone since she was a wee little one.  I made a giant breakfast before our adventure, plaintain and avocado toast, hash, eggs, cherries and strawberries. Lots and lots of blueberries as far as the eye can see. We went back to our go to berry picking farm, The Berry Patch. "Look a tiny one for me!" Meadow did an awesome job picking. She helped the whole time when she wasn't eating any. I complained and ate the whole time. We quit when the bucket was this high. Apparently we forgot that you pay by the bucket and not pint. We could have easily gotten another pint in there. As I was taking Meadow to the bathroom I noticed the raspberries looked really good. We decided at $5 a pint we would onl

Not My Normal Thanksgiving

Due to work and school I wasn't able to go home for Thanksgiving, but I survived because my sister"s" came up to be with me. We made chicken instead of turkey. I made pie but the dog ate it. Morgan was wonderful and made everything. We were able to eat for 3 days. We did a lot of other things and I still managed to budget my money. It really stinks to be completly broke, I've never been this poor in my entire life. All my money is going towards rent which leaves me with absolutly nothing. I dream of the day my loan check comes. My battery in my camera died so I missed a lot of great photo opportunities. I got a new job doing stock at American Eagle. Menards found out before I told them. I've never seen my manager so sad. I did a lot of knitting during my "Thanksgiving break". I made a scarf for a girl at work and a washcloth for Brittany. I decided I'd model the scarf. I'm still working hard on Scott's sweater. I'm probab
