Christmas Cookie Time!

It was the week before Christmas and the kids were probably being loud.
My breakfast was interrupted for a photo shoot. 

 Before I got to house projects Meadow and I wrapped Christmas presents. 

We maybe had too much fun wrapping and decorating the Cottage Christmas gifts. 

Meanwhile, Scott finished painting the dining room.

Christmas present wrapping and cookies would take up most of the day. At this point the rental will be ready when it is. Can't skip Christmas traditions.
It seems like it's been a long time since I've spent time with the kids, we've been so busy with house stuff. Meadow kept asking if we could make Christmas cookies. If Scott can take 3 hours off every week to watch the Packer's game then I can take some time off to make cookies with them.
 The kids were so excited to cut out cookies. 

I'm sure I was busy working on another project downstairs. I was delighted to come upstairs to nearly complete cookies.  

I think you mean, Packer game. The kids even took over all the decorating.

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
