November and Not Much Else

 

We're still trying to use up those apples. Apple pancake again.

They will never be all eaten. It's like our fruit drawer has no bottom.

PicassoTiles are still #1 in our house.

The kids play with them every single day. 

Although Meadow mostly plays with every day objects. I've never seen anyone get so excited to get a box.

I try to sneak them out of the house, but she insists on making something out of each and every one of them.



She also constantly finds scrap fabrics for new stuffed animal outfits. 

Scott was going to be gone for the week on a work trip and needed more masks. 

Brooke even made me a Packers one.


Just look at the fine fabric.

Thanks Etsy.

We weren't having one of our standard adventures, but we still had a good day.

Sometimes I guess it's okay to be home to caught up on projects.

We finished the night playing some Wii games. That console ages like a fine wine.

Another Marine on St. Crox-Stillwater Adventure

It's our favorite time of year: berry picking season. I think that's more of Brooke and Meadow thing, but I'll go along with it. Meadow has been asking to go for weeks. I'm not sure how she knew about it since she hasn't gone since she was a wee little one.  I made a giant breakfast before our adventure, plaintain and avocado toast, hash, eggs, cherries and strawberries. Lots and lots of blueberries as far as the eye can see. We went back to our go to berry picking farm, The Berry Patch. "Look a tiny one for me!" Meadow did an awesome job picking. She helped the whole time when she wasn't eating any. I complained and ate the whole time. We quit when the bucket was this high. Apparently we forgot that you pay by the bucket and not pint. We could have easily gotten another pint in there. As I was taking Meadow to the bathroom I noticed the raspberries looked really good. We decided at $5 a pint we would onl

Not My Normal Thanksgiving

Due to work and school I wasn't able to go home for Thanksgiving, but I survived because my sister"s" came up to be with me. We made chicken instead of turkey. I made pie but the dog ate it. Morgan was wonderful and made everything. We were able to eat for 3 days. We did a lot of other things and I still managed to budget my money. It really stinks to be completly broke, I've never been this poor in my entire life. All my money is going towards rent which leaves me with absolutly nothing. I dream of the day my loan check comes. My battery in my camera died so I missed a lot of great photo opportunities. I got a new job doing stock at American Eagle. Menards found out before I told them. I've never seen my manager so sad. I did a lot of knitting during my "Thanksgiving break". I made a scarf for a girl at work and a washcloth for Brittany. I decided I'd model the scarf. I'm still working hard on Scott's sweater. I'm probab
