Last day of school

Yesterday was Nic´s last schoolday, the year went so fast it is unbelieveable. In november he was a small little boy that was just potty trained and now he is so much more mature.
It was also the principle´s last day, for he reached his pension and all the children made a big party for his last day.

As you can see, it was a nice day for him. All the children sang songs and danced and they had a big picknick with all the kids. So it was a well organized and festive day. Nic was so tiered that he fell asleep in the car on the way home.

So ... let summer holiday begin...

Almost the last day of school

Tomorrow is the last day of school for Nic. Another milestone reached, his first year in school is over. Time flies...
I made this little doll (pattern Wee Wonderfuls ), with an old uniform of Nic. He goes to an uniform school, which is great since you never have discussions about clothing and what to wear.
He will be a gift for his teacher Miss Anouk.

Princess Party

This weekend Nic and Peter were invited to my friend An´s daughter Sam´s birthday party. Sam turned 5 and wanted a Princess Party, so Nic came as a knight, look how fierceful he looks, and Peter was a pirate.
It was a wonderful party with a lot of princesses and 3 knights/pirate.
Sam´s dad and Niels baked pancakes and the ladies present took care of the sugar, drinks, etc.

Doll Quilt Swap II

This is so exciting! doll quilt swap II is under way!! I received my partner´s name. I immediately started on the quilt and it is almost completed. I made it completely on the go, so I didn´t use a pattern and it was made going along.

I really hope my partner will like her little quilt. Will make a label over the weekend, as it is no quite hectic with making appointments with all the workfolk that will pave the land in fornt of our house.

We also noticed that a truck destroyed our pavement and maybe the sewer, so I had to contact community hall to make a complaint and so on...

I know nicer things to do when I come home.

One big party at school

This afternoon we had a special gathering at Nic´s school. They had a performance on the X-files tune and the theme was ´When I grow up... I want to be an astronaut´. The performance was very cute. The girls were more into dancing than teh boys, but the outfits were just adorable. A big applaus for the teachers which made this all possible.
There were all sorts of activities and on one of them Nic won a goldfish which he called ´Piet´ after Piet Piraat, a belgian pirate cartoon on TV.

´Gooische schort´ = a specail apron

I love this apron from , it is also available in pink and the pearl necklace is part of the apron. It is inspired by a TV show in holland called ´Gooische vrouwen´, sort of a dutch version of Desperate housewifes. I also like the TV show, so I also love this apron.
