A Homebound Thanksgiving

This year Thanksgiving would be just us in our home in Minneapolis. After watching the awkward Macy's Day Parade the kids helped with making pie.

I thought it would be fun to top the pumpkin pie with our two favorite states.



It was a good decision.

I had too much dough and we still had roadside apples left. So Theo and I made a dutch apple pie.

After cooking all day it was time to eat. I brought out the drinks for adults and kids.

Meadow took the pic.

Our traditional, well not on Thanksgiving, Indian inspired meal.

Theo patiently waiting to eat.

Theo mostly enjoyed the naan. 

Can you blame him?


After dinner we went on a walk around the neighborhood. A lot of people had Christmas lights up already. 

This house had a strange neon sign in their house that blared, "Be Cool" out into the street.

We ran into this kitty who then followed us all the way home. Peanut jr?

Theo was very sad that he didn't follow us inside.

We all were (except for Brooke).

I later saw on Nextdoor that he followed someone else home who brought the kitty inside. The kitty was later reunited with it's owners.

It's Almost Christmas, But Where's the Snow

  We've started enjoying our nightly walks to look at Christmas lights in the neighborhood. This one was pretty creative.  I guess the owner delivers Christmas trees or something.

St. Nick and A Long Solo Work Trip

  Meadow had been counting down for St Nick for weeks.  Sparkly play dough. I too love pre-gaming it mini-Christmas.

Christmas Eve in Duluth & Christmas at Home

Blake decided he wasn't going to travel to our parents for Christmas this year and asked if we wanted to spend Christmas with him. Scott wanted to be home for Christmas day so we went up a couple days before Christmas Eve to spend a few days in Duluth. We had big plans for Christmas morning, but I also didn't want to miss a stay in Duluth. Somehow we always end up in Duluth around Christmas time. It would have been weird to skip it this year. We haven't visited Duluth much this year with COVID. It was nice to be up here. Both of our households have been very careful and this was a much better option than going to Little Chute. We haven't been around other people without masks since October. It felt a little strange at first. No monster pancakes this time. Blake's bed and breakfast had waffles made with a vintage Nordic Ware waffle iron. Yum!
