Boring November Happenings


We went to Ikea and got way more than we were planning. Since we were across from MOA we had Theo get Meadow's Christmas gift.

We finally got frames for the Tuska family Hungarian Sausage recipe.

It's big pancake day.

Earlier this week, Theo came over and whispered to me that he wanted a friend to come over to play. I wrote a note for his mom and asked Theo to give it to him. A few days later and we were having him over. We told Theo that we had to clean up when we have guests over. He put up a fight but eventually vacuumed the living room. 

Covid set Theo back a little socially so it makes my heart so happy to see that he's making friends at school. A year ago he was still afraid to go to a playground if other kids were there.

Theo also believes that since he was born in the winter he doesn't need to wear a coat or shoes outside. 

We finally got new house numbers and debated where they should go for a good while.
We ordered from Etsy. Took about a month, but well worth it.

Our house is really coming together. 

For dinner we had Theo's favorite meal that for some reason Brooke now hates. I either make a meal the kids hate or one Brooke is, "So, over!"

At least I made this kids night.

Then we had some night time entertainment.

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
