Early January

 

Meadow was feeling creative and made characters with candy canes and marshmallows.

The Nintendo Switch has officially taken over our days.

As it was getting dark we decided it was time to get outside. We had plans to go skate at Lake of Isles. While driving there we saw so many people skiing, hanging out, skating or fat biking on the lakes. Apparently the lakes are the new hang out. I have never seen them this busy. We passed on the lakes and went to the Bryant Park rink.



A few nights ago we went ice skating and Theo was really into it. Today not so much.

This rink is not quite ready. A little crunchy and pretty lumpy. We must have the real pro at Lyndale Farmstead.

We had plans to pick up tamales after skating but they had already sold out. Instead we ordered Red Wagon pizza. 

We finished up some ice cream and called it a night and played more Nintendo Switch.

Our weekend did end with a trip to urgent care. Meadow tried to hug Theo and accidentally knocked him over into the coffee table. Luckily we found an urgent care still open late on Sunday. Apparently no one is sick anymore because everyone there was there for an injury. We had to wait almost 2 hours for the procedure room. Thankfully he was just glued back together and no stitches.

Eureka! It's Thanksgiving!

For the first time in 2 years we were able to head home for Thanksgiving. I am so thankful this year that Scott isn't working retail. Especially with how ridiculously early stores are opening.  I'm thankful I'm working for myself . Luckily I had Wednesday off and Scott, well, he can have off whenever he wants. We made it out of the city with no traffic and came home in time for dinner.  I made that cake like 5 years ago in school (don't worry just the outside is real). I'm surprised my parents have still kept it even though its changing colors and covered in dust. Everytime we go to my parents house Scott always has to poke fun of my senior pictures. He's just jealous he didn't get to sit on a swing.  My mom had just gotten the upgraded version of Scott's phone. She had no idea how to use it, so Scott had to show her how. For the rest of the weekend I played the part of Geek Squad agent. Better than actually working at BBY.

Thanksgiving in the Valley

Thursday This year Brittany hosted Thanksgiving at her new house. We debated between going to Grand Rapids, Michigan (where my sister and mom live) and going to Little Chute (most of Brooke's family). With Grand Rapids being a 9 hour drive (no stopping), we opted for the 4 hour drive to her family. While getting ready for Thanksgiving I found these 30 plus year old German wines sitting in the garage. I guess they'd been sitting in Grandma Lungwitz's basement since then. We uncorked one of them for the night. I was all for it until my dad opened one and when I mentioned where it came from he made a face and exclaimed he would not drink it. My contribution for Thanksgiving this year was pumpkin shaped rolls. For the first time in 33 years we actually get to sit with the adults and the cousins were at the kids table. They were happy to have their own table. To our surprise Brooke's cousin Hayden showed up too. We always have a

Thanksgiving in Chicago with (Almost) the Whole Tuska Clan

Thursday After work on Wednesday we drove down to stay the night at Scott's parents house. When we arrived we learned the air mattress was already at Colin's place. Luckily we brought Meadow's travel toddler bed. Unfortunately that bed no longer stays inflated. We woke up, ate breakfast and drove the final 90 minutes to Chicago. For some reason I got the address wrong by a block. I stepped up to this modern home and thought aloud, "This can't be right." It turns out it was one more block to the east. When we arrived Meadow said, "We're here already?!" I guess she's not used to short drives. Then we found the right place. The story with their apartment is that the building was a single family home that started on fire. The inside was gutted after the fire and split into two units. Thank you Chicago for saving the building. While the food was being prepped we ate fancy meats and cheeses. My brother Colin was har
