How many hours are there in a day??

I can tell you .
NOT ENOUGH!!!

Since both kids are at school, I thought I would have more time, to craft to do things for my self.
BUT..... it looks like that the days are getting shorter by the week..
I really have no idea where the time is these day's.
And i see my mail getting fuller and my blogloving list getting longer for reading (sorry, will be working on that this week)

That's why I don't have a real crafting update. but do have some great things to show you.

♥ ♥ ♥

First let's start with Noah.
From school they got a note last year who like to enter the school swimming championship.
And as Noah's loves competitions, he signed in.
2 weeks ago it was the day
Noah had a awesome time

As he was the youngest and the smallest he ended last for his class group, but with a big smile, and a very very proud mommy and daddy 
From the girls he was 3th ... hihihi  ( they made a mistake, though he was a girl, so for 10 secondes he stood on the podium)

But the team he was swimming in ended 2nd so in 2 months there are provincial school swim championship, he can swim again.
The men who organist from our school told before that he wasn't looking at who is the fasted for selecting the teams, I think that is so cool, now other kids like Noah also have a change. He can't wait to swim the next time.

At the moment it's Carnaval here.
And Friday at school they also celebrated.
I had a easy sewing year. Noah wanted to wear his Starwars outfor from last year, and Kira her Elsa costume for her birthday.

♥ This is how my two pretty kids where dressed to school ♥
So handsome ;)))
Noah ready to fight, Kira shooting ice ♥

And as cherry on the cake, Kira won being the most best dresses girl of the WHOLE school
And as smart Noah told me...: Mommy Kira won, so I also won, I'm her brother ... ( melt melt)

They both had the best morning, and after it vacation..
How fun to be a kid ♥

Last week I baked Bolussen, Its a real treat from the part I live in the Netherlands.
In our dialect we call them Jikkemien.
It's made with a special bread dough and brown sugar and cinnemon.
AND ow so YUMMY
It's the second time I made these ( first was about 8 years ago)
And not the last..
So yummy

Also love to bake with puff pastry
 Stuffed a few with chocolate, and a few with bacon and cheese

Yesterday made the same but them with croissant dough .. Even more yummy..
But forgot to take a picture

Last thursday I went with my sweet friend Petra to a big craft fair.
She had giving me the cards for my bitthday last year.. so sweet
It was a long drive for me, but I had a awesome day.
Here a collage of  a bit we saw
Most of all we saw yarn yarn yarn and felt.
♥ I WAS IN HEAVEN ♥
I saw so many beautifull things.
And in my mind so many beautifull projects..
So I hope I can find the time back.. because I wanne start making some of those idea's.

The piece I have been working on a lot the past weeks was the shrug for my colleague.
Can you remmber I finished it last year??.
It was a bit to small so I finished it bigger now, and she asked me to put letters on a crochet hat she made.
Also finished.

So on to the next project .....

I'm ending this post to pick up my crochet neeldes, and maybe my stitching needles..
Who knows... the evening is still young..

Have a great vacation!!
I only have to work tomorrow and next weekend the rest I'm off doing great things with the kids


bye bye
( p.s. this doll is next on my to-do-list..hihi♥)

With the kids growing up and doing more and more after school activities, I don't think you'll be having a lot of time to yourself for a while!

Yea for Noah and the swim team!

The kids look so adorable in their costumes. And if Kira didn't win with that beautiful dress and super hair, I wouldn't believe it. Noah was such a sweetie about it too.

Yummy looking baking and yarn heaven. Life is good at your place!

So lovely seeing your kids happy:) your daughter has a doting mom like you who makes wonderful things for her. Your dress was definitely worth the best dress in school :)
Best wishes to your son for his future competitions. With that spirit of looking forward, he is surely going to succeed in his life :)

Oh the joys of being parents!! Always running around like headless chicken :) Yep, I know how it is :D

Aww... I loved little Noah's reaction to Kira's win--what a perfect big brother thing to say :) I always wanted a big brother, but I am the oldest. Kira is very lucky--he will always be there to love and protect her...

Great news that Noah loves his swimming so much--I know he will get faster and faster the more he practices... Kira's dress is so darling, Annette--you should be very proud that you created it for her.

Love the baking and pastries and your trip to the craft fair was heavenly indeed :) We don't have that sort of thing in my area.

Hope you had a great weekend with the kids :) Sending a hug your way, my friend!

Hallo Annette,

Wat heb je een leuke foto van de kinderen met de sneeuwpop!
Wat worden ze snel groot he, ik kijk met plezier naar de foto's.
En jaaah dat gevoel ken ik ook maar al te goed .....veel te weinig tijd voor alle leuke dingen in het leven!
Leuk was de beurs in Zwolle, ben op zondag geweest en heb me kunnen beheersen.......
Veel plezier met de crea activiteiten en groetjes XXX Hetti
