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.



Meadow's favorite, a purple tree.


Not sure what is happening here.

It's art, Brooke. Art.

This guy always goes all out for holidays.


Our own mini Bentleyville. Theo did not want to leave.

For gym Meadow had to play board game with her family. Not sure why it was a gym assignment.

Hungry Hungry Hippos is definitely exercise.

It was fun getting to play games with Theo.

Until he spilled his hot cocoa.


We need to do more game nights. We seem to do too many movie nights lately that it doesn't feel special anymore.

We finished with a game of Catan Junior.

Brooke's been really busy, so I took the kids to the lake for some fun.


The lake was frozen by us, but slowly falling to waves a few hundred yards out.

We stuck to the shore and skated around.



If it doesn't snow this could be an awesome giant ice rink.

It took us a while to get down the shore



Always finding lightsabers everywhere.

We ended up at the big bandshell playground.




And then made our way home. It was almost Christmas, even if it didn't look like it.

Meadow goes back to school Brooke's Always Productive Vol. 978

Meadow had her first day of school on Wednesday. Of course it also happens to be below zero.   Along with Meadow going back to school and needing masks, I also made her some headbands and attached buttons to hold the straps.  Perfect so her little ears don't get hurt. The kids requested Chocolate Rye Pancakes for this Valentine's breakfast. So sweet. In two ways. I guess Brooke got Meadow a Valentine's shirt. Nope, I got her the fleece lined leggings with hearts on the knees. She already had the shirt. Mmmm...the kids' favorite. You know it's cold outside when you can't see out the window.  Meadow was up to her crafty self and made Theo a batman mask. She made a wrong cut and patched it up otherwise it looks awesome. I made Brooke some peanut butter-peanut butter cup-chocolate ice cream for Valentine's day. It was delicious. When you live in a small place your bedroom becomes your sewing room. I also prefer sewing standing up.  I'm not sure if she's

Theo @ 3 Years

Our little love Theodore. He's not afraid to show his emotions and has a kind heart. He's the best hugger you've ever met.  He is 3'1" tall and weighs 30 lbs. He loves being outside, building things, helping us cook, playing video games, super heroes, his baby and blanket. He loves to pretend to be Link and Batman and Lightning McQueen is his jam. In the last year he's become a Papa's boy. I love the little runt. Most of the time. He still looks up to Meadow and loves everything she likes. At least when Meadow's not picking on him. He's gotten pickier with eating. Loves breakfast but not a fan of dinner. But he'll still try something when asked. Meadow is his guide and he'll basically eat what she eats. He's really picked up talking in the last year to full sentences and stories. He has a little bit of a stutter. Think it runs from Meadow to Theo. It's so much fun talking to my little guy. He hates getting his diaper changed and also

Sand Dunes State Forest

Out of the blue we decided we needed to go camping. Being only a few days after the fourth we decided to head to a state forest. Most state parks are booked this time of year, so the forests are good alternative. On the way I got really hungry. We found a Culver's and ordered a small feast. Of course I got a blueberry malt and a bacon butterburger. The best of all malt flavors. Brooke and I shared cheese curds since she already ate leftovers.
