A quiet and pretty week up at the cabin

For the week of Thanksgiving we headed up to the cabin this year.
There was snow when we first got up there!

 Patrick & I met our friends from MN and we went to Lambeau Field and caught the Packers vs Tampa game. Patrick & I stayed overnight in Green Bay. It was our first night away from both boys. The boys did great.  

 The twins Jacob & Joseph were the apples of Cy's eye. He adored playing with them and looked forward each day to seeing them. They were so sweet & played a lot with him. 

Grandma did a lot of baking & helping with the boys & Fishpa went hunting & did some Arlo-carrying on his part too!

 Several days into the trip the snow melted and Cy cruised around in his Jeep.

 Here's a pic of Grandpa's new porch for those of you who come up! It looks awesome!
 Sara did a lot of baby carrying too. And Jeff always had a dollar in his hand to surprise Cy with.
 Uncle Jim did some hunting and cooking for the family too!
 Cy & I had fun messing with Fishpa when he was sleeping. That man can sleep anywhere!
It was just sooo pretty out.  I took picture after picture. Jim & Carol are out walking in this one.

 Abbie went in the almost frozen lake!
 A peaceful moment with Grandma Lynn.
 The lake was so still because it was nearly frozen. Some days we'd wake up and there'd be ice on it & somedays the ice would be gone.
 Love that Cy played with his sand toys in snow!
 Arlo took a few fresh outdoor naps

Cy loved having his Dada to play with him the whole week!! They did a yoga video with Grandma Lynn one day.

 And when we got home, we went to ski lessons! Cy loves them and so do I!! It feels so incredibly good to be outside with the ole planks on! Feels like home.

Boppa and Nana are back to helping out as usual. Boppa sometimes brings Cy to & from school so mama can catch up on sleep/shower/whatever. Thanks Boppa! And Nana watches Arlo once a week for a few hours so Cy & I can go to ski lessons! We are lucky to have great families!! 

We are presently battling some illnesses and a sleep-less baby who was just put on antibiotics today so I do not have much time to write (or sleep. or shower. or do anything! :) but I wanted to post these pics from our wonderful week up at the cabin. Coming up this month: a plethora of parties, Arlo gets baptized, a photo shoot, a parade with Santa, a Les Miz date for Patrick & I and a trip home!! Hope that you are having a wonderful holiday season too my dear reader & I hope the next time I'm on here I will be writing about how the drugs worked for sweet Arlo & that we are all back to sleeping again! Amen!
