Getting through it

Halfway though February and this is my first post! Well we have been getting used to a new routine around here, so I have fallen a little behind in some areas. But, to sum up this month-we are still in WINTER. Groundhog, will your vision be true? Truthfully though, this is one of the first years that I don't even really mind winter. Oddly, as this has been one of the worst I have experienced in years...

We are all buried under several feet of snow. The snow has turned into ice, coated with dirt in most areas.

And it is definitely hard to navigate the sidewalks with a stroller...
So most of our downtime is spent indoors.

A lot of time has been spent in our kitchen.

Amira loves to mix things, so we have been giving her flour and water and salt to mix up. Of course, this is adding to me doing some extra baking as well. (Just what I need in the middle of winter, an excuse to make cookies.) The in-process cookies above are not for Valentines, I have no "G" Valentines. We hosted a Superbowl party this year as the Green Bay Packers, Adrian's favorite team, played. So those cookies are my Valentine's cookies from last year refashioned into Green Bay support cookies. They were delicious, and the team won-which I attributed to my Xmas gift to Adrian, a Green Bay inspired, felted helmet hat for Amira!
