♥ 11th anniversary ♥

Hello everyone!
How are you all doing on this sunny ( here) Friday?
Today the 8th of May, is the day that hubby and me are 11 years together.

What does time fly
 I'm still on love from the photo-shoot from last Spring, so I show it here again!!
So many things we have seen, been true. Got two lovely ids.. Time goes on and on..
So now for the next 11 years.. hihi =))

And I thought this is a good reason to pic up my Soda piece again
So I started stitching.
The girl is almost done, the boy need to get a chest and then some back stitching.
The end is in sight.
Still love this piece very very much.
And I can tell you while I was stitching, my mojo came back

The May-vacation as at his end, and the weather was so strange.
I made pictures..
In 15 minutes time 2 day's ago I saw the sky many colors.
It was raining so hard, kids where finally getting better after being sick more then a week. So with this weather stay in side it not that bad..

Then 5 minutes later
Clouds where almost gone, sun was shining ( 2 minutes after I made the picture)
So Noah asked.. mommy can I play outside.. as I have seen the weather change so much that day I said to him wait a few minutes...
Tada... there the black sky is coming back again... you see the blue sky disapear right below.
These changes I saw a few day's  whole day long.. ;(.... but but but..

From today we will get better weather.. Tuesday we will get summer weather 26 degrees.. mmm 
Sound sso great.. but the week after that it will be gone again.. so we are going to enjoy it.

The garden is looking great
Today we have been working in the garden, with all the rain, the plants flowers and grass are growing, but also the weed.. work to do.
And kids where helping me.

I made some picture's of my blossom tree's the past couple of day's.

So many beautifull  flowers.

A while back we plants seeds. Today we planted a part in the garden.

They had so much fun doing it.. Now we need to do the veggies.

We also planted our new seeds also

So I think we will have enough veggies and herbs this summer I think.. 
so we can plant enough this Spring/Summer

As it is StarWars day we did StarWars projects..
We started with hama beads
 Kira wanted to make princes Leia
 Noah started with a lightsaber, and then made a sort of symbol ( need to dive more in StarWars......hihi)
I made a cute Yoda... Kira used her fantasy in the pattern of Leia, so cute

Then I went looking for my StarWars cutters and we baked cookies
 I told Noah how much we needed and he measure it... seeing him busy so fun
 Kira was putting on the mixer
 Then make them.. I don't wanne bake StarWars cookies Kira told.. then you bake Hello Kitty cookies.. But I want Frozen Cookies.. Mommy doesn't have does... Oke then...... =)))
 Noah had fun... and look at his cool T-shirt
This is what we maked.
Kids loved them.. not me.. lol..So they have them for themself. :P

For lunch I wanted to do something fun for Noah again, and yummy!!
So I thought lets bake French bread/egg bread, but make them in the shape of StarWars
 A big Yoda I cut with a knife

 The kids loved them!!

After lunch Noah asked me if he could play a StarWars game on the WII.. hihi lol, oke it's StarWars day so I told him yes...
Look at him

So I'm having as always so many project and idea's in my mind.
One big one is many little ones.. hihihi
I started the first project.. for the next months not much season projects, but Noah's room projects.
I started with a crochet Death Star

 I finished it almost, but then thought WAYYYYY to small, so pulled the yarn and started rolling around my hand.

And started again with double yarn and a bigger hook!
Hope this try will be better

Today in the Netherlands on the 4th of May we remembrance the Dead In Dutch called dodenherdenking.
Evey year at 20.00 we having 2 minutes of silence to remember all the people who dead in the Second World War.

Tomorrow on the 5th of May it's Liberation Day, we celebrate that we are free.
At this moment there is a run busy I needed to sign myself out off, as I had to work tonight. They walk with the fire to a town nearby, and really it's raining so hard. But they are so brave all.
next time I hope to anter the run. 
Tomorrow afternoon They will arrive ( after running the whole night) and there also will be a Kidsrun. 
The kids also will run ( hope it goes well.. Kids where sick last week, stil aren't all better) and the weather can be very bad tomorrow also.

!! Kingsday !!
Last week on Monday it was Kingsday, and we celebrated it, but just before I found a lovely braid in Facebook, that I needed to ty on Kira
me busy braiding
At that moment she wasn't really in the mood for a picture....... The back braid needed to be a crown, it didn't work like It needed to be but it looks great, and the front is just a tiny up-braid.
It was fun to do..

Then let's make a Pic of us just before we went in town
We all where in Dutch colors... Kira and I blue jeans, white top and red vest. Noah orange t-shirt
I made so many pictures, but just let you see a few. we had so much time..

I gave the kids some little money, it's tradition to have  ajumble sale ( vrijmarkt) in each town/city.
Kids bought great pieces. Noah bought so much .. he;s a great spender.. more for less ( not a quality he has from his parents... lol)

Kira wanted the face painting.. she asked for a purple unicorn.. her favorite.
To bad I needed to wok, there where so much great things to do. next year I;m going to ask a free day..

Living nearby water gives fun moments

 trying to take a pic of the 4 , with wind a many hair.. lol...
But it's funny

Can you find the kids???
It was Kira's idea to go there.. we had fun.

The the day after we went to the woods

And I started to notice kids where getting ill..
So the fun was for a short time. they weren't feeling well, and wanted to go home.

But first eating a big Big BIG pancake.. WE LOVE PANCAKES!!!

While being sick there where short moments of playing, not much

And if Noah wasn't enough in the newspaper, we got a activiti-paper for the next 3 months. and who was on the front???
Sick under a blanket, but I got a smile from him...
