It has been grey and cold in Copenhagen for months now, but Ethan and I have been trying to get out as much as possible and meet people. There is a FABULOUS indoor playground downtown that is run by the Kommune, which has been a popular spot for us this winter. I am so excited for spring to come, but know that spring is months away. (In Copenhagen, spring arrives in May!)
Last week my sister-in-law tempted me with a picture of her homemade bagels and I really couldn't resist making some, too. I have been craving bagels like crazy and they aren't that easy to find here. I used this recipe and they were surprisingly simple to make and sooooo delicious! I put salt on a couple of them and found that they were tasty plain.
Yesterday Ethan helped make heart shaped cookies for Valentine's Day and sampled frosting for the first time.
I made fondue for dinner last night with served it with a bunch of veggies, including blanched broccoli. Aaron and I decided that fondue on Valentine's Day is our new family tradition. It was so fun to spend Valentine's Day as a family and be reminded of all our blessings and the love we have for one another.
Ethan and Chase surprised me with this beautiful bouquet. I wish I snapped a picture of my sweet boy handing it to me!
On the sewing front, I have been working like crazy on the massive hexagon quilt. I really want to finish it before the baby arrives. I am sick of seeing stacks of hexagons on my sewing table--they are taking over! It's time to wrap up this project and move on to other projects. In a few weeks I will be making a quilt along with Anne and her daughter, Michelle, over Skype. It's a virtual quilt circle! The pattern that Anne proposed will be perfect for my Sherbet Pips layer cake. More on that later...
What have you been doing this week?
