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!

Over the River & Through the Woods to Grandmothers House We Clean

My mom had wanted us to come down to my grandparents home to clean for months. Unfortunately a busy summer had kept us away. We finally made it a week after our honeymoon ended. We slept at my parents home in Cudahy before heading down to Racine.

We got home from our trip on Tuesday and left for Milwaukee on Thursday. It was almost like an extended vacation.

Before leaving the cities we stopped and had dinner at Foxy Falafel. It was pretty good and I like that she uses sprouted chickpeas. 
I never knew my grandparents on Poppyseed Tuska's side so Grandma and Grandpa Wojcik were a special part of my life. They both passed away last year after living nearly 90 wonderful years. 
Their home was always a wonderfully warm and inviting place. The perfect place to spend your Christmas Eve in front of a fire place.
Since it's going to be sold, Brooke and I took on the massive task of organizing and cleaning the home.

When Scott told me his mom wanted us to clean his grandparents house I …

Christmas

For the two of us Christmas means a lot from-scratch cooking. It also usally means a trip to Little Chute and Cudahy, our hometowns in Wisconsin. 
Since we weren't going home, my parents were going to come up for the weekend, but my mom wasn't feeling well at the last moment.
With Scott having to work Christmas Eve and me having to work on Monday we decided driving home wouldn't be worth it. So on Christmas Eve I prepped our Christmas dinner while Scott was helping all the procrastinators. 

But the show had to go on. It was going to be a smaller occasion, but you can't just ignore Christmas after all. 

I woke up Christmas morning at 6 am. Not because I was excited to open my gifts, but to bring out the challah and cinnamon rolls so they could proof. 


For the last five Christmases we've opened presents with Brooke's whole family.
This was the first time in my life that I haven't spent Christmas with my family. Today didn't really feel like Christmas, it was…

Honeymoon: Locks, Falls and a Damn Ankle

Once we decided to exit stage Mackinac, we had to decide what to do asap.
