son #2 turned 5

Yesterday son #2 had his birthday for his friends in Jobland. A great indoor playground for smaller kids. The entertainment is fun and the people do their best to take all the work out of your hands. The kids loved the place and had a great time.
This morning we went to the Zoo, OK teh weather was not great, but we had a nice walk and could see all the improvements they are doing for the new season.
After we came home, the grandparents visited us and offcourse there was cake, but since son #2 doesn´t like cakes and loves wafels, he got some wafels with candles.

And this is what I made for his class tomorrow,since he is in the Bee class, I thought I would make cake pops in the shape of bees. It turned out to be much harder than it looked, especially sine the eadible stift I bought to draw the eyes and mouth didn´t work after one bee.

i hope the kids see bees in them.

crochet gettogether

Today some friends of mine got together to do some serious crocheting. Two friends are new at this and my other friend a vetran.
So I made a quiche and cake for lunch. Hubbie made some pancakes for the kids and off we were, leaving hubbie alone at home. My friend made cupcakes, so there was enough to eat.
It was a great afternoon and hopefully my friends are not giving up and trying this at home as I am typing...
When I arrived home, hubbie was making won tons... OK, they don´t look like the ones that the chinese restaurant but they tasted great.
So this is a go for more.
Conclusion, a wonderful sunny day with great food and wonderful companianship.

crochet course

Yesterday evening I took a crochet course to learn how to crochet hexagons. But it turned out to be quite easy so I finished early to go home since it was a long day. But it fun to make them and they look great.
I would like to start making a blanket or so, but I have a million UFO´s, so I have to finish first what I am cross stitching at the moment.

First day of school

Today was son #3 first day at school. He wanted to go to school for a long time, so he was very enthusiastic to go, until he was in the classroom and realised that his brothers were not there...
But I think he still had a great time as we asked if he was going to school again tomorrow and he said yes.
Yesterday evening I made this cake pops, a first attempt I admit but they looked OK I guess. The ball have to be smaller next time and smoother, but they tasted real good. I used the Martha steward recepy for the frosting. And it sure tasted nice, like professional frosting but no additives, great recepy.

Here son #1 is in his classroom presenting the cake pops. He said the kids loved them and wanted more...
So there is no better compliment.

son #1 turned 7 yesterday. We celebrated this joyeous occasion at home with family, and he was spoiled rotten. He wanted Lego so no he has Lego for the whole year.
Today we went bowling with some friends from school and had french fries and chicken nuggets... what more is there in a party at that age, so again wonderful gifts and happy children, so it was an afternoon wel spent.

Bees and other cake pops

I saw these bee cakepops at Bakerella. She makes these fantastic cake pops and I wanted something different for my boys to take to school. They are only allowed fruit or cakes so this is maybe a way out of the traditional cake.
I ordered supplies at de leukste taartenshop, since they have it all in this part of the world. We are not so spoiled overhere with all these lovely goodies, so this shop is a blessing for me.
I will do a try-out next week when the supplies arrive, so see if they look anything like bees, as son #2 is in the ´Bee´-class. Fo son #1 I have to figure out a theme, because he is in !st grade, they have no themes anymore.
