Winter in MN Comes Early Caleb's Birthday Party

We continue to CHILL OUT here in MN for another few weeks. And chill is the word as it was 0 here this morning after receiving another 8" of snow Friday and Friday nite. Here it is the 1st week of December and I have had to blow out the yard and driveway twice!
Been staying pretty close to home - cleaning closets, corners, cabinets - sorting, tossing and throwing a lot of stuff we just don't need anymore. Keeping the garbage can filled and another schedule trip to Goodwill this week. As soon as the carpeting is replaced this week the house will be officially listed. Realtor wanted to take some pictures with the new carpeting before putting on MLS. So we will see how it goes over the winter for showings and maybe a sale.
Last Saturday we celebrated Caleb's 3rd birthday. He celebrated with many of his cousins on his moms side of the family - they celebrated monthly birthdays - I think there were 6 or 7 birthdays. Party was in Melrose - kids had lotsa cake and the parents had a wing tasting. We came in 2nd - along with 4 others. Was a good time -got to see a lot of people we don't get to see very often.
Another busy week ahead - getting carpeting finished, meetings in St Paul Wednesday and Thursday and getting house ready for Christmas next weekend.


  1. All the kids sure seemed to be having a great time at the birthday party - nice pics!

    I did a double-take when I saw snow and your post header!! At first, all I saw was the letters 'NM' and thought 'what's all the snow doing in New Mexico'? Then, I realized it was actually 'MN' for Minnesota - whew!!

  2. That is a lot of snow. We are hoping this is not what we have before we leave for Mission, TX.. We have 3 more weeks before we head out so we hope the white stuff stay north of us until we get out of town.


Thanks for leaving a message! Have a Great Day!!
