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.

Backcountry Camping with Kids in Theodore Roosevelt National Park

Day 1  Back in May I stumbled upon Theodore Roosevelt National Park. I had no idea there was a National Park in North Dakota and that it was the northern end of the Badlands. Usually our summer vacations coincide with Scott's work trips. Since he didn't have any this summer I thought we should take advantage of actually taking a vacation. What, my workcations are always classics? I suppose a second real vacation this year wouldn't hurt. We definitely have more time than normal. As long as we took Covid-19  precautions and avoided people. We finally settled on a time to go. Blake joined us so we borrowed our dad's van so we could ride together. Scott had just driven from Michigan the day before. Blake had met my parents in Wisconsin to get the van and then drove from Duluth to pick us up. I offered to drive since I literally only drive twice a month.  I was still pretty tired from a long drive home. Don't @ me for doing this, as the kids say. Our kitty has been havin

Fox Valley Thanksgiving 2022

As always, we made the trip to Little Chute and the Fox Valley for Thanksgiving. Since we don't eat Thanksgiving dinner until the evening. I suggested this year we drive on Thanksgiving day instead of leaving the night before.  First thing when we arrived, G.G. was already giving Meadow gifts. My mom is always spoiling her.   Then we were off to Brittany and Jeff's for Thanksgiving fun. Theo got the longest piece of cheese. Marina showing us her island on Animal Crossing.  I made some maple whipped cream just before everyone arrived. All the cousins wanted to do at first was watch each other game. Theo stayed with us when the kiddos finally started to play something other than Switch. Eventually Theo warmed up to playing with his cousins.  Look at this dumb picture. At least that's what G.G. would say. Chelsea surprised the kids with this cute cookie decorating kit that looks like Thanksgiving leftovers.  Theo just watched. Silly little guy. This cranberry bread that Britt
