Forgetful Parents on a November Grocery Run

We planned on doing a bunch of errands today. So for breakfast we ate some caramel pumpkin kringle from Racine, Wisconsin's O&H Bakery. I totally forgot Trader Joe's had their kringle. I guess that place is good for something after all.

The Minneapolis Farmers Market runs until the weekend before Thanksgiving. I thought we would check it out and stock up one last time. Turns out nobody is selling produce anymore.

With the early snow and cold temps the season is over. I did manage to get some cider.

Meadow has been a good helper lately.

Brooke did a nice job livening up the stairway with more succulents after some herbs died.

This kid was so cute in his one-piece snowsuit. He was probably disappointed he didn't get to show it off at the Minneapolis Farmers Market.

I got sick of having to feed Theo while I'm trying to eat.  I dehydrated his baby food and cut them into strips so he can feed himself.

This is so much easier and he learns good eye-hand coordination.


I took the kids over to the library for a family craft day.


The craft today was painting with pom poms on canvas.  Meadow was so proud of her picture.

After this Meadow and I went to Costco. I hate going there on the weekend. When we got back to the car I couldn't find my keys. I was thinking, oh great now I will have to retrace my steps and hope that someone brought them to the front desk. I was sitting in the car thinking this, when I realized, wait a second, how did I get in the car? They were in the trunk the whole time.


She did manage to lose our grocery list. So, we had to rewrite the co-op half from memory.

After a family trip to the co-op we settled in for the night with a movie.

Actually a bunch of Pixar shorts. I'm so glad Meadow likes their movies as much as Brooke and I. Oh, and the hot cider wasn't bad either.

Mille Lacs for the Day

Yesterday I made yogurt and today it was ready to go in the fridge. 

Valentiens = Hearts

Today started off on a bad note. I was caring Meadow downstairs to make breakfast when I slipped halfway down. I landed on Meadow and she started crying. I thought for sure I had broken her leg. She was fine, but when I stood up I couldn't walk on my left foot. Brooke thought she may have broken it, but after a conversation with Momma Gail we thought we'd wait it out. It turns out it was better by the next morning. I'm just happy neither of my babes got seriously hurt. This sweetheart is a tough little gal. Her canines are coming in, which means her nose has been running for a week. Seeing as it's Valentines I made us some heart shaped eggs. Along with chocolate rye pancakes that tasted like cake.  Meadow couldn't argue with cake for breakfast. Meadow colored in some hearts while Scott cleaned up.  I finished crocheting my heart garland. All I wanted for Valentine's Day was some ice cream. So Sebastian Joe's i

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.
