St Nick 2017

 This year Scott had to work on the morning of St. Nick's, so I took the morning off. Luckily I could be with Meadow when she opened her stocking. The night before I made "snow" tracks coming into the house. When Meadow saw them she said, "Hey who left those?"


 The other day Nolan and Meadow had gotten into her stocking and Nolan put her ornament on the tree. Chelsea didn't think Meadow saw it. When Meadow saw the ornament she said, "Hey how did he know I wanted this ornament?"


 I explained to Meadow the night before that we had to put carrots out for St Nick's horse. We didn't have carrots so we did parsnips instead. Meadow then suggested we give him some cabbage too. Then she realized the horse might be thirsty so we should also put out some water. And she wanted to put out toys for the horse, but I explained they were going to be busy going to other houses and that was very thoughtful of her.

 Her main thing that she asked for this year was a lollipop. Sadly when we opened it the lollipop came apart in pieces and broke off the stick. 

In all, she got a lollipop, snowman pajamas, snowman ornament, Arthur book and playing cards.

Minneapolis Weekday Adventures and Apple Picking on the Weekend

Meadow returned to school this week. Our big 3rd grader.  We went to the inspection at our new house and afterwards walked over to Vo's for dinner. It's going to be nice having this place closer to us. One of our favorite places and now even closer. We left our house early midweek since our condo had it's inspection. While our condo was being inspected we went out for breakfast before school. I'd never been to Our Kitchen. We always ended up getting donuts from Bogarts across the street instead. It's always packed on the weekends. Was nice to get up early and get a table. Why hadn't Brooke insisted on taking us here. It's so good. Luckily we'll still live close by and stop by again. Note to self though, only order one pancake per kid. They're huge! We dropped Meadow off at school and walked over to the "Boblikin" woods as Theo calls it. A few days later we went apple picking. I am now all for the early apple picking. There's way less cr

We're Selling the Condo

We always knew our condo would be temporary. I could stay here forever but eventually Meadow and Theo will want their own space. Our next house will be a duplex with the other unit being rented out.  We had planned to keep the condo and rent it out too (and buy a duplex), but it wasn't quite working out with financing. Also realized we'd make a killing on selling the condo. Extra bonus: we'd get a nicer duplex with more cash down. We had been looking for places for the past 8 months, but houses are selling super fast in this market. If we actually want to make an offer we need to sell our place first. So today was spent getting the house ready. I've been working on the house every day since getting back from our week at the cottage. 12:00 Scott works in the kitchen I worked on deep cleaning the living room. So many toys hidden under the radiator.  Meadow ended up staying with my parents after we left the cottage. Theo was left on his own but I don't think he minded.

The Crews All Here: Labor Day 2021 at the Three Lakes Cottage

  We had a full house for Labor Day weekend this year. We started off said weekend with rummage sales and a trip to the new store in town, Little Dipper . We've been eyeing this place up all summer. They have classic Chicago Schwinn's for rent, seasonal flowers and an assortment of souvenirs and vintage items. It was pretty darling inside. The main reason we went was to get their Chain of Lakes puzzle. Blake had sent the historic map to the owner, so we had to get it.
