The new digs

Yet another new place that we never really saw before renting it. It's quite large, meaning Myrna finally gets her own room along with a crib (thanks to this Tuesday's trip to Ikea). She's taken to it quite well, and for the first time since we've landed, she's been again sleeping through the night, so I think she likes it.

She shares a room with the "office" and "guest room" (for all her slumber parties she has with kids old enough to sleep in a real bed).
The kitchen is large, with lots of counter and cabinet space (a plus), a microwave and toaster (two things we haven't had in Germany) and equipped with more cooking supplies than we'll need. The one thing it does lack (there is always something lacking in German kitchens) is a freezer in the fridge.
And that black thing next to the oven - we're not quite sure what it is - it's not a dishwasher, or freezer or trash-compacter....

The spacious living room is where we spend most of our time rolling (literally - that's what she does most of the day)
Then there is our bedroom, complete with more closet space than we've had in a while. While we decided we could deal with the separate comforters and ginormous German pillows, the duvet covers on the bed when we arrived just were not going to cut it.
I mean, how could one choose between leopard print and Coca Cola. It was going to be a fight every night. Thankfully, Ikea was well supplied with alternatives, and we never did have to sleep in the Coke Jungle.

The black box is where you store the old duvets, or maybe it is a secret passage way to the black forest.

OMG, looks like it was on the way to MTV Cribs: Eastern European Stripper Edition. Much improved now though- yay Ikea.

Happy Birthday, Kelly!!!

Oops, I was looking at the wrong week on the calendar. Happy early b-day, I guess.
