So, we have been very creative around the house. Son #3 made this bust of Zwarte Piet (without golden Earring!).

And I finished another Happy Hippo from a pattern (Heidi Bears). This one I made with DMC embroidery thread, so it is a small one, but very cute.

Sinterklaas is back in town, so he visited DH work, son #2 and #3 are still young enough to visit him, son #1 is a little bit old, but he tagged along, because there was a chance he would also get some presents, and he just wanted to make sure...

Luckily, they all got presents,... oof, but son #3 was especially happy with his presents, a guilty consience???

Busy week

It has been a very busy week, with the au pair back to her home to visit her sick mum. All classes, work and stuff keep going, so it has been an extremely busy week, but OK, we managed with the help of our parents.
I had my recreation, when I saw episode 5.04 of White Collar, nice Neal whump, so I enjoyed that episode. We are still in serie 4 here in Belgium, and I saw that they are going to repeat season 2...
I also managed to finish the Happy Hippo from Heidi Bears that I corcheted with DMC cotton. I didnt have eyes to finish the little guy, but a friend helped me out, so I could finish him. I will make some pics.
The pic is son #2, he and his younger brother went to a birthday party with  clown and they mugged the guy I guess:-) because the had an obscener amount of balloons with them when they returned from the party...

Kalmthoutse Heide

Today we had a walk at the Kalmthoutse Heide. As you can see, every tree was climbed and explored, so the boys did three times the distance we did...

And after a campfire meeting, their looks are clear. They were fed up, so we headed back to the car and visited a friend, who lives near the Heide and got us some lunch.
