My dad turned 68 so we went to diner with my parents, their best friends and our family. We chose a child friendly place, where they have an indoor playground, so the kids had a great time and we could enjoy our diner peacefully.
Friends of our had their second daughter Fleur, we still have to visit her, but we will do so this coming week, when the family had their chance to visit their new family addition.
And I am still working on my blue and white quilt. Things are going well and I will post a picture soon of my progress.
So we had a busy weekend which we spent with family.

They split up all the kids into groups and one group at a time they talked to Sinterklaas, the other groups did games to get their 'Pietendiploma' sort of diploma to show that you can walk on a roof, do funny danses, now how to put presents down the chimney, etc.

I can´t wait to sit done with a good cup of coffee and some Speculaas and start looking at all the fun projects.
And the most curious thing is, I sent this parcel from The Netherlands....
So I have contacted Sara and will try again, since she says she still lives on the address she gave me... But someone put a sticker on the address and wrote ´return´ ... Strange.
Since Peter is a part of the 'Chicken' class, all classes are represented by an animal, so they can put tags on their schoolbags and stuff. And because they are the youngest in the Chicken class, I made him a small chicken keyring. I think it is cute.
I also started working again, so that is great, as I have never been away. But I knew the feeling, after the forth time... So it is great to be back at work. And now I will endulge myself in watching the X-files movie and crocheting.

Just saw that I haven´t included Molly´s ornament as I mentioned two entries ago, so here is a pic of it.
Today was a slow day. We had brunch over at my friend An with both our families and a quite afternoon at home. I enjoyed my last day off from work and tomorrow it is back to the rat race. I enjoyed my time with Ruben (he is truely a benjamin since I didn´t stay at home so long with the two other boys...) but it is good to go back to work.

This arrived in the mail today. I did a needlework exchange, and Molly made me this wonderful ornament and an even nicer biscornu. I think they look great and they both found a nice place in my home. Thank you very much Molly.
They made bread dough and baked the bread in a small plantpot. They also put some jam and chocolate dots on there to finish the toadstool. It looks great and tasted very nice. Well done Nic!

He did fine although I got a bag of laundry this afternoon... still not completely potty trained... Hopefully he makes the ´click´ when he sees all the other chlidren.
He aslo does not eat fruit, and that is compulsory at school, but we never managed to get Peter to eat fruit, unlike his brothers... And the teacher had to ask if it is OK to give him appelesauce. Because that is the one thing he eats, but she thought that it is not allowed to gve to the chlindren... strange but OK, if it is school policy.
We will see how tomorrow goes.

Then I thought I would make my swap partners a bit curious. This is a piece of picture of one of the handmade things I made for the cupcake swap...
