Lately

 

 

Hi there y’all!  I am checking in to let you know that yes, although I didn’t post my normal Menu Monday we did eat this week (although it was nothing spectacular and a lot of leftovers – trying to clean out the fridge for our trip) and share with you a few pics from last weekend and all of our funsies!

My mom was in town for a Christmas visit (since we will be in Wisco for Christmas we celebrated early with her) and Mike and I attended the 5th annual Thankschristmakkuh celebration sans baby – woohoo!

As always the food was delicious and the company was fabulous.

There were lots of kiddos there this year (in the flesh and in the womb) and Everett’s girlfriend Kennedy (9 months) was looking cuter than ever.

We even tried something new this year – decorating a gingerbread cake!  I followed this step by step guide from my Food Network Magazine and it was so fun.  The best part was that after the decorating was done – there was actual cake to eat!  We had a blast and will definitely make this a new tradition.

The rest of the weekend was spent opening gifts, shopping, seeing Santa for the first time…no tears from the stroller, and pulling the Packers through a nail biter!!!

We are heading north in a couple of hours (weather permitting) and will be off gallivanting around the frozen tundra for 9 days.  I want to wish all of you a very Merry Christmas and I will check back in when we get back!

 

This doesn’t look too promising…

Have a wonderful trip! Merry Christmas! Of course I think Everett's girlfriend is a perfect choice!
