Merry Christmas

Christmas dinner is already over, we are all stuffed. Gifts are unwrapped and everybody is already on their way home... Yes, we did it all this afternoon, so the little ones can go to bed early.

Family madness... that is what it is. I agree, but we all had a great time and we are now watching the Penguins of Madagascar on TV with the kids, snacks close by, the lights of the Christmas tree... Family.

Merry Christmas everybody!!!

Au pairs

Two of our former au pairs and there 'better halves' where in town, so we got together for some old fashioned breakfast at the market.

We then had a stroll through the city and ended up at the Groenplaats, but the christmasmaret was not open yet, so we could just have a look at the skating ring.

So we decided to have lunch at the Mercado, a food market with some excellent food, everybody could get what they preferred and it was all delicious and the entertainment in the form of a magician at our table was priceless.

Great to see you all again, guys!

Another year...

Yesterday we celebrated Sinterklaas with Family. Great organisation by all the aunts and uncles and the kids had a great time.

Sinterklaas visited us, so that was a privilage.

Getting the christmas tree

Today we got the Christmas tree. So we left with my car since we couldn´t use the trailer... And found the perfect tree... But it was a tight fit in the car, as you can see... :-)

The boys did a great job helping...

And there it was... The perfect tree.

And now it stands in our living room in it full glory. It is beautiful.
