Pizza and Picasso Tiles

For Christmas Scott received Picasso tiles and they've been a hit with our family.

I played with these quite a bit at Brooke's sisters house. Funny thing is that these kids have been mostly playing with them. That's OK with me.

Since we got back from winter break the kids have been playing with their toys a lot more.

Meadow's way more creative than me.

I spent the majority of the day working on my backpack. It's turning out to be easier than I thought. 

And another masterpiece. She has us send pics to Blake each time she builds something.

Sorry little brother, you can't touch it.

It is OK for you to go in the cardboard car, buddy.

We were having Aaron and the kids over, but he had been held up a bit. So, we turned on the game and Meadow took a picture.

We were supposed to have our annual Indian Turkey dinner, but the turkey hadn't defrosted in time. Instead we had Scott's famous homemade pizza. We've been hosting dinners a lot lately. 

Little buddy was excited to have a guests.

We're so busy in summer that the winter months are nice to catch up with friends. 
Aaron even brought a vegan cake for dessert.

The kiddos played like maniacs all night long. It was great having Aaron over. We'll have to do it again soon.

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…
