Yummy Deliciousness For a Sick Boy

G hasn't been feeling well** the last few days, so today, to try to entice him to eat somethinganything, I made some Cinnamon Cola Coffee Cake.

3 c. Flour
1 1/2 tsp. Salt
1 1/2 tbsp. Baking Powder
1/2 c. Sugar
1 can Coke (Root Beer or Dr. Pepper would work too)*
1 tbsp. cinnamon

Struesel Topping:
1/2 c. brown sugar
1 tsp cinnamon
2 tbsp. softened butter

Pre-heat oven to 375. Spray bread pan with non-stick cooking spray.

Mix struesel topping in small bowl and set aside.

Mix all bread dry ingredients in bowl. Add soda and mix until blended.

Pour into prepared pan, top with struesel topping and bake for 30 – 45 minutes. Check at 30 with a toothpick to see if it comes out clean.

*I had to use a little more soda (about another 1/4 can) to get the dough to mix. You might need more too depending on climate and flour.

** Found out today my little bear has a double ear infection, eye infection AND sinusitis. And yet, he was still smiling and waving to everyone at Target while we waited for his prescriptions to be filled. My little trooper!

Baby Bedrooms

We've been working full force over the last few weeks to really give both of our babies a great space that's all their own.

I've already published pics of the nursery in progress already, but we've added a few more touches, so I hope you don't mind seeing the cuteness that is Cecilia's room again :-)

Of course, not to be left out, Graham had to get a stellar big boy room redo as well!! I'm so in love with his baseball themed room, it's by far my favorite room in the house!
