Cupcake anyone?

Tonight I'm meeting up with the girls in my knitting group again, and I promised one of their daughters some cupcakes... you might remember I brought cupcakes to one of them a few weeks back. Well I also gave her a crocheted cupcake, which her 7-year old daughter fell in love with.
So I promised I would make some for her to play with, and this is the result so far.
She is the sweetest girl, and as soon as she heard Jonas had broken his collarbone she worried about him, and wanted to buy him a get well gift. So last Monday her mum handed me a gift for Jonas at work, and said that her girl wanted him to have it. So it seems like Jonas made a really great friend in her, he loved running around trying to do what she was doing, and the best thing was probably that she still think he is fun, and not just an annoying kid. But I guess that shows that friends come in all shapes and sizes, and what does it matter that she is much older than him:)
Have a great day:)

So it looks like fall is arriving in Denmark, and Jonas have been puddle jumping. It seems like it's raining a lot, though it is probably not more than the usual in September, but you have little boy who loves to be outside it seems like it's raining all the time. So this is where the rain suit and rubber boots comes in handy.

Maybe I should find my on rubber boots and go puddle jumping with Jonas... or maybe I should get some new ones, there are some really nice rubber boots out there...
Like these pink ones from Ilse Jacobsen, she is a Danish designer, and has a lot of really cool rubber boots.
Or these pearlecent green Hunter rubber boots, who doesn't like Hunter rubber boots? The hard thing will be deciding which ones to get... or maybe I should just clean my leopard print rubber boots, and bought a few years back, but hardly ever used...

Try to enjoy the fall, even when it rains:)

A little update...

Seems like life been way too busy lately. Or well we haven't done much, but with Jonas' broken collarbone it just seems like we have been even more busy. 

We have been to the hospital today for a check up, and it was healing very well. So the doctor recommended him to keep the wrap on for another week, though we could take it of for him to get a bath and when he was sleeping. And even better... we don't have to go back for another check.

Frank has the rest of the week off, so Jonas isn't going back to daycare until Monday, and by then it should have healed a lot more. Though we are really lucky to have grandparents that are able and willing to babysit Jonas while we are at work. Last week my mother in law watched him for 2 days, and Friday I was off work. Sunday afternoon my mum arrived with bus, and my dad picked her up today. I could get used to having her live here... getting home to a clean house, no laundry, and a nice home cooked meal... all that she has done while entertaining Jonas for a whole day. 

Well that will be the little update for now. Don't know when I will be back since I will be working all day both Friday and Saturday. So until then have a great weekend!

My little wild boy...

Monday they called from daycare that they thought Jonas was getting sick, because after his nap he wouldn't do anything, he was just laying on a blanket on the floor or cuddling up with his "daycare-mum". I stayed home yesterday, and took him to the doctor in the morning, who thought it was the flu. Most of the day he was just laying on his blanket... it wasn't until the afternoon he started getting up a little. I noticed he was using his left arm properly, but he had a small bruise on his arm, and I figured that was hurting a little.

We kept him home today, and my mother in-law came over to watch him. When I got home she said that it seemed like his left arm was hurting when she tried to pick him up. And she had also noticed that he didn't really use his left arm properly. So we ended up taking him to the doctor again, he sent us up to x-ray, and it  turned out he had broken his collarbone... so now he got some kind of wrap around his arms, which he will have to wear for a week. (I will get pictures another day, when we got home from the hospital we just had to hurry up with some dinner, and then a very late bedtime). 

So tomorrow my mother in-law will watch him again, then I will be working the night between Thursday and Friday, so I will have Friday off. I will be tired, but then Frank is off early on Fridays, so I will get to sleep when he gets home. My mum will come up Sunday night and stay till Wednesday, so he will get to stay at home at least a week, so he will have to rest his arms as much as possible, which will be hard, and probably even harder if he is in daycare. 

I'm just happy that we have a great support system... Thank God for grandparents!

Cooking with Connie

It's time for another cooking with Connie post... well again it should be baking with Connie, but that just doesn't have a good ring to it:)

I am going to visit a coworker and friend (who is also in our little knitting group) had surgery done on Thursday. She had excess skin removed from above her eyes, so Jonas and I are going to visit her this afternoon, and I promised to bring cake.

I made Toblerone cupcakes, you can find the recipe here, I have used some of her recipes before, unfortunately Alicia stopped blogging about 1½ years ago, but her great recipes are still there for us to use:)

I had a bit of trouble with the piping bag, the first one broke, so I had to do with a plastic bag, then I hadn't chopped the toblerone enough, so it kept blocking the tip, so in the end I just use a plastic bag, and well they didn't turn out exactly how I wanted, but the taste will be the same:)

I made the same cupcakes for our Survivor party, though I just use a plain butter icing with a bit of food colouring, and that didn't stick in the piping bag, so here is proof that it doesn't always turn out too bad:)
Have a great weekend:)

I'm still here...

Yeah I'm still here, though it seems like the last few weeks have flown by. It feels like I have been on the go all the time. I've been to 2 home parties with children's clothes, and Jonas doesn't even know how spoil he is! 

Last Wednesday I met up with the girls in our knitting club, which I just love, we have an amazing time. Two of the girls from my knitting club actually is also blogging, though in Danish, but I guess google translate can help you out, or you can just enjoy their pictures, since they mostly blog about their DIY projects. So check out Susanne  this dress is actually for me, isn't it cool? and Camilla.

On Saturday morning Jonas had a swimming class, we decided to start him up again this fall, though he is not too happy about it, I guess he has forgotten how fun he used to have their, but it has been better for each time we go, so we will keep it up:) On Saturday night we were at a birthday party and Jonas slept at Frank's parents house all by himself (he is a big boy now). He had enjoyed himself and of course he got spoil rotten. And we got to sleep in late on Sunday... well by 9.00 am I had been awake a few times, and gave up sleeping anymore... though the party had taken it's toll on my voice, and by Sunday I hardly had any voice left, which is really annoying, though Frank thought it was pretty nice having a hangover and a wife without a voice:)

Well that will be all for now, I hope to blog a bit more this weekend:)
