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.

Money DOES Buy Happiness

I got a wake up call when I realized all the loans I took out for school actually went for school. I'm only working part-time at Menards now which is just enough to pay the rent and bills. My phase of being poor wasn't really a phase, but actually permanent. I took out another loan so I would have extra cash to feed me (being poor is the best diet). I won't see that money for another month which means no time off for a Christmas break. I have to wait a few more days to find out if I even get Christmas Eve off. This is by far the sadest Christmas ever for me. It doesn't even feel like Christmas. Only one house on my street put lights up, I'm used to everyone in my whole town putting up lights. Plus we don't have a tree or any decorations and we haven't had any snow yet. I did get a Christmas present from Menards, 55 dollars in Menards money and this. In two weeks someone I love and care about very deeply will be in London for 5 months and I only get to s

A Few Thoughts to Pass the Time

I'm sitting at the library, my new hang out besides random coffee shops. Class isn't for another 2 hours and I've finished all my homework. There's a guy running across holding his pants up and rush hour is just setting in. I never realized how weird Minnesotians actually are until I saw American Idol last night. They were doing auditions in Minneapolis, which Randy liked to call Minnehopeless. I thought it was just the culinary students that we're weird at my school, but no it's the whole state. The majority of the people that I know here are not actually from Minnesota, only one that truely is seems ok to me. Maybe I'm just like them but I don't want to admit it. School is alright. It keeps me busy. I like that some classes only have 10 students. Everyone in my Nutrition class eats healthy and reads the ingredient list but me. At least I get to take home everything I make in my baking class. Summer seems so far away. I need to find a place to l

Honeymoon: Did Someone Say Fudge? How to Avoid the 57 Fudge Shops on Mackinac Island

We had to wait an hour but we made it onto the next ferry. I couldn't keep my eyes off the Mackinac Bridge. One of the Star Line Ferries actually passes under it. Next time we go to Mackinac, probably with kids, we'll have to drive over it.
