My wife made Valentines cheeseburgers for supper tonight. She really gets me.
Having a lot of holiday fun recently.
At Christmas time, there’s so much to do. Recently we’ve taken in the Christmas lights at The Spirit Of Winter Festival of Lights at Sovereign Estate Winery, made Christmas cookies & gingerbread houses, and even visited some penguins at Wooddale Church’s Family Christmas. Soon it will be family, then Christmas, and before I’m ready for it, […]
I tried to wrap a kitten.
We’ve been seeing those videos of people wrapping cats for Christmas so we decided to try it ourselves with our kitten. Overall, I call it a success. He was pretty much wrapped, didn’t draw any blood, and, for the most part, allowed me to do whatever. This turned out much better than we expected.

Luna Lovegood Halloween

Some Easter Fun
Had some fun on Easter. Created giant Peeps for the neighbors, made an even bigger bunny in the snow, and finished off the day with a fun Peeps Jello dessert.

Easter Egg Hunt in MN

I bought two sets of solar Christmas lights from two different companies. Both had 8 modes. Both have the same issue, no memory. When the batteries run out, they forget what setting they […]
