What we are up to...

Since moving two weeks ago all of us have been sick or dealing with some other ailment on a daily basis.  It seems like the stress of moving combined with the season's germs have really hit us hard.  To sum it up: it's been really rough!  In addition to it being bitter cold outside the last couple of days we've all been house bums a majority of the last two weeks.  On the bright side, when Brian and I had a bit of energy we finished unpacking boxes, hanging frames on the walls, organized stuff, and made ourselves a cozy new home which we love.

Isabella requested that we make some cookies to take to our new neighbors.  We are so fortunate to have had great, amazing neighbors in our last place and now this place.  And since we now live in a ground floor apartment I stop myself from telling Isabella to not jump so hard, because the "neighbors downstairs".  What luxury!  :0)

So, here are a few photos from the last week of us being cooped up.  Oh!  And the highly recommended recipe I found for these delicious cutout cookies: Spicy Gingerbread Cookies.

"show me your eyes" is the only way to get a "smile" for the camera
 We made gingerbread cookies twice.  The first round (see photos above) went much better than the second (below).  Oliver did amazingly well the first time and then the second time he threw fits, ate dough (with raw eggs) and tossed flour everywhere.  But the second batch did taste better...

FYI: the mark on his chin was from a marker...not an open sore.
