Playing in the Snow

Wade and I spent the morning boot shopping and not finding as much as you would expect. Evidently Milwaukee sells out of boots before Christmas. Wade found one pair and I decided to order a pair off the internet. Then came the exciting part of the day – we went snow tubing! One of Wade’s…

A Day in the Snow

Wade had big plans for the day. He found a dog park for Madison. Little did we know it would be the best dog park ever. There was a huge area with a circular path, trees, a creek, hills, etc. Little clean up stations were conveniently located and no leashes were needed. Madison loved running…

Let It Snow

I heard all the warnings. I knew it was supposed to snow today, but I was still overcome with excitement when I looked out the window and saw the snow. 3-6 inches were predicted and I would say we got at least that. The roads aren’t too bad, Wade and I did venture out to…

A New TV

Wade and I had planned to live fairly basic while we were in the apartment in Milwaukee. I packed minimal kitchen items, we borrowed furniture, and we didn’t pack a TV. I knew Wade was getting a new TiVo for Christmas, but I didn’t have room in my car and didn’t want to raise his…

Christmas Day

Wade and I had to get up early this morning for stockings with Mom, Melissa, and Chris. They were meeting all of the Jenkins’ side of the family for breakfast at 8:30. I only have a picture of mom with her stocking. Melissa and I have to admit to a little trouble filling the large…

Christmas with Grandma

This is a big change for our family since last year. Granddad died in March and this is our first Christmas without him. For the first time that I remember, we are not having Christmas at Grandma’s house. Instead everyone is coming to Mom’s house for our traditional fried oyster dinner (and ham and macaroni…
