2 Days of Snow Much Fun

We were home again this weekend. After a snowstorm over night we decided to play outside.

I got the fun task of moving the car. There was a layer of frozen snow on top of the ice and the windows were iced over.

I love this Beetle and it looks even better in the snow.


We thought we'd go sledding, but the kids just wanted to play with sand toys in the snow.

Theo loves eating snow and Meadow loves picking on her little brother.

We took a quick walk around the block, but the wind was brutal.


I guess this was as far as we were going to get.

As always we promise hot chocolate when coming inside.

It's the only way to get her inside sometimes.

The next day we decided to go ice skating.

I wanted to try the free skates instead of using my own. I had a hard time finding skates in my size.

We are trying to get Theo on single blades right away. He doesn't agree with this idea.

His wooden sled slid right across the ice.

Hockey skates are definitely not the same as figure skates. I fell pretty hard trying to do a spin.

She never noticed that they don't have the stopper in the front.



Meadow's getting pretty good at skating, but she always wants to do "tricks," which makes me nervous.


Theo decided he was done skating.

It would've been fun living in the Wirth House and watching the families skate and sled in your backyard.

Meadow said she wants to be the Park Superintendent when she grows up so she can live there.


He liked the ice a lot better on two feet.

Meadow fell and landed on her face which resulted in her glasses breaking. 

My intuition was right. Perfect the skating first, little gal.

We watched the AFC Championship Game in anticipation of the big Packers game.

On Friday I finished my backpack. I'm pretty proud of this considering I've just picked up on sewing within the last year. I also have a very basic sewing machine. My machine literally only has 3 settings.


Looking good.

Let's hope it holds up on our upcoming trip to Mexico.

While they watched football I finished my next sewing project, a fanny pack. Much quicker to make than the backpack, but surprisingly harder.

In honor of the Packer game we had a snack dinner.

The snacks were epic, but the game was a big let down. Still, great season, Packers!

Namekagon River Camping

Scott has been wanting to go canoe camping on the St. Croix for a few weeks. 
More like a few years. Brooke decided on the windier Namekagon River branch of the St. Croix National Scenic Riverway.
We thought about going last weekend, but I was thinking it might be busy because of the 4th. 
We convinced Blake and Daniel to join us so we would have one car for drop off and one car for pickup. We met Blake at at the Riverside Landing, picked him up and met Daniel at our starting point at the County Road K Landing in Trego. 
Since we started in the evening we only went 5 miles before picking our campsite for the night. We chose campsite 29.7. Campsites are free and first come first served. 
It was a nicely wooded site but had lots of poison ivy.
We would find out that would always be the case. Basically don't venture into the woods.
We brought along Meadow's walkie talkie, which was perfect since we had two boats.
Theo's not used to being around other people quite yet. Also our camps…

Gardening Mama (or How to Hang Out with High School Friends)

Some of Scott's friends from high school that he hasn't seen in like 7 years were stopping by later to see our house. We quickly cleaned up the place, breaking one of our favorite mugs on the way.

7 Days Down, 158 Days To Go

Umm, well I ended up having a longer Christmas break than I had originally thought. It went really well until the last few days.

I had dreaded this day since we met, I always knew it was going to come, but yet I ignored that it would ever happen. Saying goodbye to Scott was the hardest thing I've ever had to do. I've had to do that so many times last year and I still have to do it. If I can get through January and February and I think I will be ok, or so I keep telling myself. I took out a second loan and it got denied, so I'm still as poor as ever until I can figure out what I'm going to do. I'm so glad school starts next week, being alone all day is very hard.



I left Scott Thursday night and headed back to Little Chute, which I was glad I did. We're having some family issues concerning my dad's business and the death of his friend. It tears me up to see him like this.

I wish I could've stayed home longer. I pretty much did, I left home early Sunday mo…
