Hello Readers!
And by readers, I mean the two of you who actually read this (Hi Mom!!)

There isn't much new happening this week in our lives. We've skyped a lot with family and that's been great- seriously, thank you Lord for Skype and technology!!

Jon and I both had a stomach flu thingy (Jon had it much worse), but were both feeling better and B never got it!

My cell phone is still broke but I realized I CAN take calls- just can't call out. Jon ordered a new LCD screen so hopefully it'll be fixed soon (okay, it is seriously lonely without a home phone or a cell phone- I hate it!).

Brennan is still being great and we are still so thankful! He learned yesterday that if he pulls my hair, I yell and then laugh. So he did it about 15 times in a row yesterday and it was hilarious. Probably wont be so hilarious in about four days, but oh well.

I'm doing a cookie exchange with my mops table so if you have any EASY and DELICIOUS cookie recipe, will you comment on this blog or email them to me?? Gracias! (Erin Zubert- can you send me the recipe for your super easy whipped cream/pudding cookies??)

Also, I need some toy ideas for Brennan for Christmas. I'm trying to be forward thinking here- so if you have any toys that your 12-24 month child loved- let me know!!


My mom helped me unpack our kitchen and she wisely told me to put a bunch of tupperware and non-breakable in a cupboard to let Brennan play with. He loves it and it lets me get dinner made!

We have a cupboard for Owen too...it has the pots and pans...it gets very loud around dinner time :)
We are looking for toys that Owen will play with for a long time too. I'm going for Legos, wooden blocks, and Little People. Owen got the school bus for his 1st birthday and he loves to carry them around. Also...any kind of car...

I can't believe how grown up B looks in all these pictures. Ashlyn is still only rolling around and sitting up. So crazy to know how active your little man is.

So funny about the phone thing...I have a phone, but it rarely rings. I get so excited when it does.

Carrie- some days I wish Brennan was less active :) He pretty much crawls all over our house and pulls himself up on everything. It's crazy- he even tried to climb up his crib the other day!

Trisha- we found some Little People toys at a huge garage sale we went to on Saturday, yeah!!!

Best freaking cookies ever...
1 box of chocolate cake mix
1 egg
2 cups of cool whip

Mix the three ingredients together and refrigerate for 1 hour. Use a melon baller or roll them to about the size of a walnut then roll them in powdered sugar. Tap of the excess sugar, and bake at 350 for about 11 minutes. Using parchment paper makes it even easier. I eat these like it's nobodies business. Enjoy!

Yes, thank you Erin, they are so incredibly DELICIOUS!

I am making those cookies!:)
Brooklyn has a cabinet with Tupperware and one with her Green Toys dishes and tea set (wonderful Christmas idea:) and her Ikea pots and pans. And her Melissa and Doug cutting fruit. It's what she runs to in the morning:)
Books are the main thing she plays with though...
