I have been looking for the noel angels for awhile.  I found a set on etsy from Magpie Ethel.   my in-laws always had one displayed at Christmas, but it didn't stay this way for long before one of the boys got a hold of it. 
leon has arrived for the holidays.

on the road to state

we headed up north to watch football, kyle is a coach on the high school team.  we made a side trip to a little town, rudolph, home of the wisconsin dairy state cheese co.


you can buy bulk butter, of course.
making cheese curds.

they have a room full of pretty blue and white cheese keepers. 

won't keep you in suspense, this is how the game ended, on to state!
happy team, fans and kyle.

foster cheese house

a few weeks ago we were up north at the farm and we had breakfast at the foster cheese house just down the road in foster.  it's a very nice cheese shop but it also has a great little cafe inside.
here is the wood fire that they use to make wood fire pizzas, need to try that out next.
grandma's still deciding.
talk about fresh cream, it comes from the castle rock dairy maybe a couple miles down the road from the cheese shop. 
my breakfast, yum!  homemade bread, homemade jam.
castle rock milk, the milkman will deliver if you live in the area.
castle rock cheese and they also have castle rock ice cream.
