Christmas Time is Here Again and St. Nick Comes

I spent most of the week putting up Christmas decorations. Scott and the kids finished decorating the trees.

Our house always feels extra special all decked out for the holidays.

My project for the day was to make paper bag snowflakes with the kids.

You made hats? Well, not really, but they would be cool at Mardi Gras.

Meadow got excited with having paper bags and decided to make some Santa puppets.

We were having our renter neighbors over for pizza. One of them is gluten free, so Meadow made a gluten free chocolate cake.

These were easy to make and look nice in our porch. 

 I like that these could be kept up all winter. They look magical lit up by our golden white porch lights.

I only have a few people left on my list to shop for Christmas. I was having a small panic attack that I was starting late this year. 

Oh, don't worry. I can tell by how much you spent. Brooke's family really go all out for Christmas.

This kid loves snow globes. 

Theo would love this.

We got shy when the neighbors came over and didn't take any pics of our pizza night.
Meadow's cake was delicious though. 

The next morning, St. Nick came. 

St. Nick sure spoils these kids.

Meadow got hoodie pajamas, a Warriors book, root beer, cat ornament and a knitted cat hat. Plus chocolate coins in her wooden shoes.

Theo got a Waldo ornament, Where's Waldo travel book. lego set, root beer and Christmas pajamas. Plus chocolate coins in his Dutch shoes.

Post Vaxx Memorial Day Weekend Fun in Three Lakes

  We went up to the cottage for one our never-miss weekends, Memorial Day. We got to the cottage at night and in the morning I made some crazy bacon-pancakes for the family and Brooke's parents. This weekend was my annual deep clean of our car. The amount of crumbs and food under the kids seats was pretty disgusting.   

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

St Nick and a Duluth Christmas Weekend

St Nick Day! Pitty the fools who don't celebrate this Wisconsin tradition via the Netherlands. Kirby! Cat ornament! Pretty good St Nick loot this year.
