Bountiful Baskets and our Winter Wonderland

We decided to try ordering from the Bountiful Baskets food co-op. Today was the first pick up, and I am IN LOVE!!!

One "basket" is $15. And AMAZING! We got a head of romaine lettuce, a bunch of spinach, 2 avocados, 3-4 tomatoes, a bunch of apples, 2-3 Asian pears (!!!), 3 clementines, broccoli, blackberries, 2 bunches of radishes, 7 bananas... and I can't remember what else. But WOW! That would cost so much more than $15 to buy in a grocery store! 

I'm so excited to get to use them, I LOVE fresh fruits and veggies.

We also ordered a 30 pound box of Minneola tangerines. I made a tactical error in underestimating just how many tangerines it would take to make up 30 pounds. I told Jake (only halfway joking), that he should be prepared to eat a tangerine with every meal until they're gone. HAHA. Good thing we're sharing some of the box with our good buddies Josh and Shelby!

Over Christmas break, Grammy McDonald taught Tim about how yummy oranges and clementines are. So he was very excited to see the tangerines! At first he was content with taking them in and out of the box, licking them, hugging them, and rolling them around. 

But not for long...

He needed to be a little closer to the action!

We bought Tim a cute little snowsuit knowing that we would be spending Thanksgiving and Christmas in the Midwest. Over break it was 40-50 degrees in Nebraska AND Minnesota with NO snow! So we didn't get a chance to use it. 

This morning, we woke up to a lovely white surprise!

Someone had a little sled out in the quad. We tried to pull Tim around on it... But he kept crawling off.

We didn't build this snowman, we just used it as a prop for our photo shoot!
