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.

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…
