It's so strange, but lives goes on ....... so here is the rest of my post

I see it has been a month ago that I posted the last time.
Begin this Year I told that when Kira will go to school I will have so much more time.
I'm doing even more then when she was at home, but al fun things.

I even didn't had the time to see my bloglovin, when I opend it this week.. oops....
So much of the lovely blogposts I have read, I still have a few waiting for me.

Last month we went away for a week in Fall-break
I made to much pictures, this are a few I made with my layout app for my Instagram.

 we where driving, and when I saw this beautifull place
 Kids where having so much fun
 I have been teaching Kira how to fork-knit, she can do it very good, and loves it, I borrowd it from my friend, this week Kira and I bought it with thicker yarn, so soon more

A funny picture of the kids and me.

With the kids and my MIL ( Kids where so lucky that she stayed with us for 4 weekend and our Fall-break) and I went to the Intratuin, its a flower/garden store. Every year  for Christmas they decorate it so beautifull, it looks so awesome, from October till January.
The theme this year was FROZEN.. can you imagine how much Kira liked it.
Soon we will go back to look at all the pretty things again.

Crochet, and even a bit of stitching

~Winter is Coming ~ GAME OF THRONES ~

It's really cold here, last week it was the whole day 3 degrees.
Now it's a bit more slowly it climb up to 13 degrees.
But now the rain is coming more and more.. this afternoon I saw even sunshine, that was long ago.
It's really FALL
That also means candles
I have been working on my blanet.. I really can't see another square anymore.
But I can tell you:

As you can see Noah is very very very happy with it.
Here a pic of how it looks

For the edge I made little picots. It a cute crochet stitch, and I though perfect for a boy blanket.

It's the first of the 3 blanket I started that I finished!
And also the last.. lol.... 

I'm very glad I finished it, big projects I get bored to fast, but who knows!!!

* * * 

I saw I didn't show the poncho of Kira finished
The colors are really hard to get good on the picture.
But you can undestand it's all PINK PINK PINK

She loved it so much.
I can't find the picture, but she made the ponpoms on front with a little machine I have. 
Very happy is she.
And now she wants to learn to crochet.
We tryed with a hook, but thats to difficult yet.
So finger crochet.
She wants to do it everywhere, now she can do it
Here is was making a necklace for he new cuddle Bloom.
 here we made two bracelets, she really loves to do it.
More of Kira's crafts will be here soon to show

* * * 

Noah had Saterday another JUDO match.
This time with real points.
He won al the games, and earned 42 points, thats very good for the first time.
At 50 point he gets a emblem, and the more points he get the more emblems he gets, so you know what his goal is now. 14-11 is the next time he can try
 In the black is also his teacher here in town, 19 years old, very great teacher
 as he is small most boys where a head bigger then him, it goes on weight

below he got the card he his shows here above, on that the write his points 
So on to the next time!!!

* * * 

I;m working mostly night shift at my job, and you all now I like to cook and bake.
Last weekend I baked to whipe-creams pie's.
The patients and staff where very happy with it, night night there was nothing left for me to try.. hihi

* * * 

OWWWWWWWwwwww I found some pictures of my run from a few weeks ago.

I'm the girl in light blue.
last week I had another one, but my friend was ill, and I'm still very afraid in teh dark, so not going alone. but more runs are coming.. hope to do one soon again

* * * 

Sometimes we have a few moments of great weather, so we go out then.
A few weeks ago on a friday afternoon, kids had friends to play and we went to the forest
Its was very lovely, but who knows what we will get in teh next few weeks

* * *

Lets end this post to show you what I;m going now my blanket is finsihed
 yes yes... finally I;m stitching again, and this piece really needs to be finished before Xmas

From a run, too crochet too baking

So I find out I;m not the only one who has problems with Bloglovin.
And again, he marked my new posts as read, so lost again many new post, I'm trying to find them back, let me know if I haven't commented on you blogpost.
I really need to find something else....

So it have been some busy weeks, let me show you what I have been doing all.

For weeks I have been training with a friend and alone for a long run.
Here you can see us running on a beautifull beach.
And it all was for Last Friday Night
We entered the Light Coastrun, it's a part of the big Coast Marathon.
We run 11.2 km
We run a bit longer, but had so much fun, it's in the dark so we are decorated with lights
This is a picture I found on the website from the local newspaper, Haven't found much more.. But when I do I show it.
I got a medail, it was real crazy and so fun fun,. But also very hard.
More then 11 km in the dunes, up, down, up, dow, stairs up, down, up, down. the beach in the sand....
But I did it, and I loved it.
So much then in 2 weeks I;m going to do it again, but then 13.5 km.. really hope I can make it..
So fingers crossed

* * * 

Have you ever wanted to know what goes on in a childs head/mind??
You really need to see this Disney movie Inside Out.
We went with the kids, and had a awesome time. 
I even cryed.......It's great for young and old


Have been trying some braids again
First wasn't as beautifull as I hoped
It's more somethings for thick hair, so it was a one time thing

The other braid was a super match with Kira's hair.
It's not a straight french braid, and I loved it very much, I even kept Kira her separation ( didn't found a good word for it)
Perfect for swim class, will try it more


Noah';s blanket :(
I got tired of it..
But before it I finished a milestone...
20 X 20 = 400 squares

I working on something else, hope after it I will crochet again on the blanket.. I really wanne finished it, the longer It's a WIP, the sooner it will be a UFO, and I really don't want that.
So for the other thing that I started........
The start of a poncho, bought the yarn last year, also started then but with a pattern I selfmade, and it was not so fun.
So started again, as I found a beautifull freebie
Kira wore it too school this morning, but it's not finished.
Need to add a few more rows and decoration.
But I'm already in love with it.
And very girly :))


Last week I was baking with the kids
Chocolate cake.
Kids made it them selves
It was yummy

And Kira has a new favorite, she wants to eat it every day.
And the lucky thing is, I love it also very much
Baked pie, Kira calls is


Saterday there was a day they organized your very first Judo competition.
Kids who had never done a competition could try one.
We signed Noah in, and he had so much fun
Look at the pictures/
Left above Noah is the left boy. right below Noah is the boy above the other.
Noah played 4 matches, and as a big surprise he won them all.
He really had fun.
At the end a picture of him with his girlfriend and teacher, that was so great.
He got a document, see his proud face.

In two weeks is a real competition, 
We are so curious how he will find that. ...
So be continued.......

Hope you all have a lovely evening.
As you all know a while back I was hooked on teh serie Once upon a time.
There are new episodes... and the fun thing.
Elsa en Anna of the movie Frozen are in it now
So when you can't find me , you know where I 'm.. =)))) lol
