Snowy Winter and Some Other Stuff

We got another snowstorm and when I woke up it was so pretty outside with everything covered in snow.

Not a bad view outside our porch.

We needed some milk for breakfast. I braved the blowing snow to walk to the coop and Mexican market to get some groceries.

Oh, look, I snow blowed the snow.

I swear I'm almost done with this. At least all the cracks are patched.

I came up with a way to attach our shop vac to my orbital sander. I'd spend the rest of the day sanding.

Magnatiles everyday. 

Books everyday. 

We got the kids a Lego Advent calendar this year. 

I cleaned under all of our radiators. Looks at all these treasures I found from our kids and the previous kids that lived here.

We picked up this game recently from the thrift store. I love playing board games with the kids.

Post Vaxx Memorial Day Weekend Fun in Three Lakes

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
