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.

An Appalachian Hipcamp Road Trip: A MKE and O-HI-O pitstop on the way to Tawney Farm, West Virginia

Day 1  Scott had gotten a lucky gig to check out some off the beaten path campsites for Hipcamp. Our trip was going to bring us to the Appalachians. We packed our car full and headed east "early" Friday morning. Early for us is never that early, but at least we got out on the road at a decent hour. While driving through Madison we stopped at Cabela's to pick up a few more supplies that we would need. Our original plan was to make it to Indiana Sand Dunes tonight. Scott mentioned that if we drive through Milwaukee we could skip the Chicago tolls. I agreed and then he asked if we could stop in Cudahy to say hi to the folks. I said we might as well stay the night.  When we got there we went to Tsing Tao with my dad, my childhood favorite restaurant. It's in an old Ihop and has a great buffet at any time of the day.  Sorry Scott, I wasn't impressed. That's because your pretentious. Anyways, Meadow decided she didn't want t

The Biggest Maple Tree in Minnesota

On the night before St Patricks Day, Meadow made a leprechaun trap.  Maybe next year Meadow.   Meadow was having a rough morning and needed a hug.  She wanted to play Zelda all day long. The rest of us wanted to go on a hike. We spend so much time getting these kids to get outside and once they are outside they don't want to come back in. Scott chose this weeks hike based off his current love of old growth forests. Wolsfeld Woods SNA just west of the cities in Medina. It's home to the tallest sugar maple in the state.

Winter Camping for Brooke's 29th Birthday - Part 1

All winter we had plans to go winter camping, but because its been so so cold we had to keep putting it off. Scott was supposed to work on my birthday and last minute didn't have to. We decided this would be the perfect time to go before the snow melts.  I think we would've went earlier in the worst winter in recent memory, but a baby and sub-zero temperatures don't exactly mix.
