Another Olive Birthday Party

Earlier this week I came down with some virus. It was horrible. I hadn't been this sick in a long time. I even missed two days of work. So Scott wouldn't catch my germs and listen to me coughing all night he had been sleeping in the guest room. Meadow only had me to wake up in the morning. 

Meadow and I had breakfast while Scott slept.

I love sleeping in.

Olive's birthday party was today. Meadow picked out a cupcake picture to color for her. She was really excited to color the cherry red. Then was really excited to color the whole thing red. She kept saying, "Olive is going to love this!" She's also getting better at staying in the lines.

She does the same thing on an iPad coloring game.

I'm still not feeling great after being sick. Meadow and I read books in bed.

I came up with a meal list for the week. I was super proud of using so many items that we had laying around the kitchen.

Every week I take inventory on all of our food and Scott finds meals on what we have. He's pretty good at it.

Meadow ate some 'stachios while Brooke finished up the list with a few breakfast meals.

Then it was party time. Olive had a Rescue Bot party. Complete with pin the Olive or June face on the bot.

 I can't believe this will be our last birthday party with them at this house.


The usual Fiala family birthday friends were all in tow.

Can't believe this kid is six. Still remember when she was a tiny little thing and the Fialas claimed they were moving soon. Well, it only took this many more years for that to come true.

The kids got to make their own Bots.

Lydia gave Aaron a few pointers about how to drum.

Then the kids blew party favors into one another's faces.


She's pretty excited about being six.

I was pretty excited about eating a cupcake. Oh, hey, June.

After presents, everyone went home.



The Fiala's are letting us borrow some of their toys while they are off adventuring. 

The rest of the night was spent low key. I wasn't feeling well and Scott played his new favorite game, Madden '16.

Boo, to not feeling good. Heck ya, to Madden! Craigslist steals are the best.

Brittany's Babyshower

We traveled to Wisconsin again, this time for my sisters baby shower. Luckily I have Friday afternoons off so we could leave by noon. We also picked up Brittany along the way. My mom made us dinner when we arrived and during dinner I discovered a Christmas present that wasn't given to me. Super cute cloth napkins.  Mama Gail made what Brooke and her siblings dubbed "craperole." It was some kind of pasta bake. I actually liked it. Brittany and I had gotten our pajamas on not realizing we picked out the same outfit. I can't wait until my belly is as big as hers. My parents are giving Brittany their old changing table. Jaspurr thought it was his bed. I thought it was a new TV stand. My dad thought he needed a diaper change. Now he's all clean. The next morning my dad made sausage and eggs for breakfast. Us girls had packed up and left for the shower before Scott woke up. I had to run off to Mr. Mike's shop to photograp

An Appalachian Hipcamp Road Trip: A MKE and O-HI-O pitstop on the way to Tawney Farm, West Virginia

Day 1  Scott had gotten a lucky gig to check out some off the beaten path campsites for Hipcamp. Our trip was going to bring us to the Appalachians. We packed our car full and headed east "early" Friday morning. Early for us is never that early, but at least we got out on the road at a decent hour. While driving through Madison we stopped at Cabela's to pick up a few more supplies that we would need. Our original plan was to make it to Indiana Sand Dunes tonight. Scott mentioned that if we drive through Milwaukee we could skip the Chicago tolls. I agreed and then he asked if we could stop in Cudahy to say hi to the folks. I said we might as well stay the night.  When we got there we went to Tsing Tao with my dad, my childhood favorite restaurant. It's in an old Ihop and has a great buffet at any time of the day.  Sorry Scott, I wasn't impressed. That's because your pretentious. Anyways, Meadow decided she didn't want t

Marina's Twin Cities Birthday Weekend

Our niece Marina was turing 11 and had one request: a weekend in Minneapolis with her favorite cousin, Meadow. Marina made these masks for them. You know this cat lover was excited.  We walked over to Kiniko Kids and they had a Ghibli cookbook.  Meadow wanted this mushroom hat.  Since ice skating season ended early we still wanted to get one last skate in.  Theo tried out his new skates, which needed some adjustments.
