Son #2 made this wreath in school, I think he did his best and it is now the centerpiece on our dining table. Well done.

Finally, a new crochet project

Last week, I finished our hats for the ski holiday, well I finished the ones for our family. I crocheted the ones for our friends, but I have to make their badges yet.
But this week, I purchased a pattern from RuthMaddock on etsy. I made the scraf with a pair of matching wristwarmers from the thread that was left. Looks great, although not like the pattern, but I am very happy with it.

Halloween Weekend

We had our annual photoshoot, and we also made some pics for the Christmas card... No, they are not on these picture, it will be a surprise...

Then at night, we had a Halloween parade in the neighbourhood my BIL and SIL live. They went around with the boys and we guarded the candy bowl in front of their house.

 As you can see... Like father, like son:


We had a great time, a friend came by with his daughters, and te weather was exceptional... 16°C at night... A first...

Today we drove home through Zeeland, as they were working on the highway, and we would have ended up in a traffic jam, so we decided to de-tour and have some sightseeing. As you can see there were a lot of kite surfers.

And the two oldest biys, never left the car...

And when we arrived back home, there was a rabbit in the garden... It is defintey not ours... Lets see if someone comes to look for it.

Weekend Ardennen

DH and I met some friends of our in Liège, we had  boulet frites à la liégeoise , very nice, they are meatballs in pear sirop. We had a stroll through the city until it started raining. We then drove to Lernieux, where we stayed at La Maison de Maître, a small hotel with rooms decorated in different styles. We also had dinner at the hotel.
Today we came back home and the boys asked if I could carve the pumpking, so here is the result:

And this is the result when it was placed outside our front door:

It was the opening play of the new Opera season and we were welcomed with champagne. Great opera, great cast, we had a wonderful evening.
