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.

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.
