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

Grand Rounds National Scenic Byway

Yesterday Scott and I biked this. That's a wopping 41 miles around the city. It has been my goal all summer to do the whole thing and I did it. I got to see parts of the city I had never seen before. I'm glad Scott likes biking as much as I do. I've been working more, but I still seem to be short on money. I need to win the lottery or get a third job. It feels weird not going to school this fall. For the first time since I was 3 I won't have homework. I'm kind of disappointed in a way. I wish I could go to school, taking a semester off was a bad idea. I'm going to be in school til I'm 30.

Beaver Creek State Park Hiking Club (with a Layover at Frontenac State Park)

After we dropped Meadow off at school on Friday morning I made some last second plans to camp in southern Minnesota this weekend. Once we picked up Meadow we headed towards Red Wing. Red Wing Brewing has some really great pizza. The crust is something special. So we stopped there for dinner. Getting back to pre-COVID life is a bit strange, but we're getting used to it.
