A quick Happy New Year post

Hello all.
Today the last day of the year.
I just got home from work, in 45 minutes it's New Year.
Out of the shower and soon I will get the kids out of bed.
They wanted to sleep in our bed, Noah remembered it from last year, so hubby put them in our bed again. Look at so sweet.

In the Netherlands it's tradition to eat special donuts on new years eve.
Every year I bake them myself.
I needed to work tonight, but still this morning at 9.00 I was baking them

After a few hours

So now it's time to get the kids out of bed!!
Have a great evening, have fun. 


Happy new Year!!!!

Yesterday Second Christmas day we went to my inlaws ( hubby's dad)
As a suprise for the kids we went Ice skating
ow my it was 20 years ago that I did that, and for year i wanne give it a try again.
Noah gave us all a big scare.
He wanted to have the real skates, he went on the ice a away he was. lap after lap after lap.
I could not believe my eyes.
It was awesome.
Little Kira was a bit scared, but after a while also she tryed alone
When I see that picture of my, I need to think about one off my favorites movies : Iceprinses, at some time she is playing with he hand front back front back in the movie. When I see this pic I need to think about that part of the movie.
To bad just before I stopped my skates where flying infront, and I fell very hard on my bottom.
But still I had a awesome experience

The first day of Christmas my inlaws ( hubby's mom) came to us , and I cooked our diner.
The pictures, are not all that lovely but everybody liked it very much, so it was good. And I had really fun in the kitchen

Getting in to Xmas

Between working, school activities, sporting, cleaning, spending time with the kids my days are full.
The time to craft and read blogs is ...........
Today I started to be up-to date with my blogloving (again), almost done.
At which moment, time started to really be to short to do something???
But in the spare time, I did some fun crafting for Xmas and baby's 

Here you can see the 3 projects that I have been working on for weeks!!
I love crochet, but not to put it all togheter, it was terrible.. But I made it ;))

My little Christmas Navivity
It's looking so cute, I was very fast with my picture, its good that I did that, because Kira play's with it all the time.

Only the donkey is not yet finished, It needs hair, but I'm out of black yarn, before next Christmas it will be finished , I hope also with a shepherd, and maybe some more sheeps and ..........

The other project, is rudolph the red nose reindeer.
Only I made a little mistake with reading the pattern
Now working on the antlers.
But as you can see the nose is way way way to big. The white part of the nose is 7 rows to big, I changed the brown part as that was 7 rows to short, and after I put it on teh head I saw the white also was 7 rows to big.
It looks like pinokkio.... :O
From the front its a lovely Reindeer, but from the side... hihihihihi =)))))
The antlers...

* ♥ *

In our dinertable lamp I put some branches and christmas light, and asked the kids to decorate it.
I think you can tell which are from Kira, and which are from Noah..hihihi
I haven't took a picture of it will try to do tomorrow.
Do you have a Christmas 'tree' with horses in it???    no??    I do.. ;))

Then our Christmas tree.. Mommy why all white.. because mommy likes it, and I will not get crazy off al the colors after a few day's we have  small living,a nd when it's full of colors, I will climb of the walls after 5 days.. .. :")

I made this for my front window, a bit Frozen, as I saw it in the store we went a few weeks back

But just like every year at the dansschool from Kira they have a master big tree
So a picture there, and kids where happy again.

It's time to show some yummy yummy on the blog again.

Last week I got a bag, and when I opened it.. yummy mussels.
Not Noah, but the rets of us all love them. Kira. who can't get enough of them..They where so yummy

My friend gave birth of her fourth cute little baby boy.
And that needed a lovely gift
The baby room is ochreous/grey, so the gift had to be that color 
I made a little tag with his name in it.
She was very happy, so happy, that in the evening I got a picture of the little baby with the cuddle and the question if I want to make another one.
As its so cute to make, I made another one
I shown the picture to a other friend, who told me she was organize a babyshower, asked me to make a pink one.
Here I put a little tag on with the name I use for sell crafts. I still have no tags or something like that, but this was fun to make.
I love these little baby cuddle, almost makes my ovary rattle... almost!!

♥ * ♥

Tomorrow my BIL gave his birthday party, and as I didn't know what to gave, he asked my to make my apple pie he always loves.
It's done in the oven, and calling to be eaten...
I need to be strong

Last week Noah had his exam for Judo.
He managed to get his green slip
We are so proud of him.
Tomorrow he has another tournament. We can't wait. it's the first time I can see it, last time I had to work. So great to see him.

So .... as you all know Sinterklaas is my favorite time of the year. 
Every year it makes me feel like a little child again.
And my children love it too very much
Here are some pic's

 I did a lot of face painting the last weeks
These pic's are from Yesterday, it was the birthday of Sinterklaas, and then he gives the children gifts.
In the afternoon, I asked the kids with kids of my colleague to play for Black Pete to help Sinterklaas at my job, They brought gifts to all the patients, and they loved it.

Kira asked for the horse Amerigo of Sinterklaas, and a unicorn, her favorite horse
I did my best
Noah made this picture of me painting Kira.

* * * 

Look at what we did with this box, I thought I put the pictures from this DIY project on my laptop, but can't find them.
But you can imagine, kids loved painting it. First light brown, then with a sponge we made the red bricks on it.

We went to the playground across the street to look for branches, I bought some red Xmas light..
And taaadaaaaaa out very own fireplace.

Kira made the white horse of Sinterklaas. 
So fun.

Today Sinterklaas went back to Spain, next year November he will come back
So all the decoration is back in the box.
Till Next year !!

* * * 

In the meanwhile I have been crocheting for Xmas
I put my nativity upstairs in the hallway
 This is what I made last year.
I'm working on the donkey right now,
 also some other pieces, forgot to take a picture, thats for my next post

* * * 

 My orchid plant is coming in bloom
And look at this beautifull amaryllis.
Already four flowers in there and new ones are coming.

* * *

Noah is having so much fun at Judo
Here he got his first emblem.
And last week he got a third place medal on a tournament, it where all groups of 4 kids, so all kids got a medal. Great organized
We are so proud of him.
Next week he has a exam for a new color for on his band, and the week after another tournament
The weekends are very busy at the moment.. hihihi

From Kira's dancing tecaher I got this awesome picture of her
It just looks like she was flying.
