Post-Christmas winter has actually gone by pretty quickly. Yes, I still have a case of the winter doldrums and we've got cabin fever, but it's been manageable. So- cue the drumroll- we've been:

:: spending lots of time in the basement playing, diapered or otherwise

:: playing with playdough almost daily

:: eating and playing with edible playdough (easy: 1 cup sugar, 1 cup flour, 1/2 cup peanut butter plus water for consistency)

:: running (this was before a half marathon two weekends ago)

:: racing (pinewood derby style: Finn won third place!)

:: and learning how to eat with a spoon and fork (or, in this shot, just being cute)

That wraps up the winter update from the chicken coop. Stay tuned for more exciting tales from scenic Eastern Oregon!
