Sledding on a Saturday


Friday night we went to the mall in hopes of seeing Santa. We made it too late. Meadow would have to write him a letter instead. She asked for a white dress like the one Elsa wears in Frozen 2 and a crinkle cutter for Theo.

Meadow would eat waffles for every meal if she could.

I added some Christmas sprinkles for Meadow.

Ever since we did it for her birthday last year she requests it.

Sprinkles, that is.

We got a nice snowfall, it was finally time to go sledding.

I thought we could go over to Lyndale Park to get a Christmas card picture, but Brooke's super particular. So, it ended up being just a good time sledding.

Theo has mixed feelings about sledding.

Meadow brought her new snowboard along.

We went thrifting on Black Friday. The store had everything for half off so it was only $1.50.



At first she was falling down.


I gave the snowboard a try too.

I thought it'd be busy, but only one other family was with us.

Most folks sled behind the Wirth house just down the block. This hills a lot tamer.



Brooke apparently has real snowboarding down even though she stinks at Wii Fit snowboarding.

I did tumble on the more packed down areas. The other little boy here was way better.




Eventually Meadow got the snowboard down.





We bribed Meadow into coming home with hot chocolate.

While Theo napped I started piecing together my pattern for the backpack.

We played with legos while Brooke was busy.

We ended the night watching Home Alone.

Meadow didn't want to watch it initially, then she said it was her favorite movie.

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.
