Merry Christmas to you all!!

This post was planned sooner on my last post.. but ........
Anyway here it is ♥

~♥ Christmas ♥~

I hope you all had a wonderfull Christmas.
We went away for a few days to family to celebrate Xmas.
And we had a blast
The weekend started as you can see in the collage with Judo.
I have een even beautifuller photo of the kids
Look at that faces.....
You can imagine I'm a very proud mom..
Kira even got a Silver Medal for her second place.
Noah did his best for the 4th place togheter with his friend

Then we went to spend the Xmas days with My MIL's and FIL's.. We did so much fun things, playing games, unwrapping presents, went to the airport to look at the planes and went to a big Xmas show in the big city.

Noah still had such beautifull clothing. For Kira I made a new outfit
On this photo you can see it better, it was just before Xmas diner at School
A red satin dress from all leftover pieces from some of the Little red riding hood capes I made the past years.
Then I got a idea to make a Cape from Fleece and fur ( I bought in a cheap-store) and also make a muff from the fur.. ( only yesterday evening Kira lost the Muff :( )
And I tryed a new hair braid.. It's called the HALO braid, or the Angel braid.
I put in a old necklace from me in it.
They looking stunning both ♥ ♥

~♥ Sewing ♥~

Last months a friend of kira turned 6 years, and she loves kira's red riding hood cape.. 
so I made her also one 
She liked it very much!!
It's the 4th one I made.. I still like them!!

~♥ Crafts ♥~

For a while now I follow the lovely Cathy from her lovely blog, also follow her on Instagram and her FB-group.
Shr really makes the most awesome things.
Together with Kira I made one of her free-patterns, soon I will show it.
But for today I wanne show you what I let Kira and her friend sew on my sewing machine.
The girls love the sewing part bhind the sewing machine!
They made a beautifull ornament both with a skin tricot face.. 
So cute!!
And I liked it very much to teach them... more of this will come

 ~♥ Running ♥~

After my first Half Marathon I had still 3 more runs to go
The first was a cross.. I needed to run over sand, in the wood, over leaves, over grass, jump over branches.. It was so fun.. first time for a cross.. 
Next year I wanne do this one again, it's closs to home..and really fun.  

After that I went to the Big City Rotterdam to enter the Bridge-run ( Bruggenloop). 
It was 15 km over 6 big bridges with about 12.000 other runners.
Never done a big run like that
( some off your maybe now I'm a bif scared for big city's, places ahere are many men...... So for me it was a real big things this....)
To bad I can't find no pics of me.. but it was a blast to do!!

Then the  one I thought was to my last run of the year.
Together with my friend I run this great run, she did the 7 km I did the 14 km.
It was awesome and very hard.. for me a big part over the beach.. 
But so fun.
It was cold as you can see on teh pic.. but we had so much fun.. run abit harder and it's not that cold anymore... hihi.
I always run with long clothing.. there are many runners we only run in a very short short an t-shirt...

.... brrrr I'm only getting cold bu watching them.......
At that moment we decided to do another run on the last day of the year... so still a few more days... 


I can put still so much more in this post , but I'm getting tired, is was a very busy weekend.
I will let you see some pics for last weekend when we went to the Winter Efteling..
Who got the ticket from Hubby's work.. kids had so much fun..

The year is ending with so much fun!!!!
Let's hope next year will even be better!!!!

~ ♥  Family Time ♥ ~ 

Many of you said that the kids have grown so much!!
What I love about Facebook, is that you get older post to see as a memory 
Look at these:
♥ 4 years ago! ♥
( we went to the woods because it woud be lovely weather.. but it rained... Noah does not like that.. you can see it :) )
So cute are my sweet kids.. love them so much

Then a while back my joungest brother put a piture of us on Facebook
There you can see the younger me... :O
It was in my first house. 
Hubby just moved in. 
We had a Party. 
I think it was for his 24 birthday.. 
So this is me about 10 years ago.. 
I was in too the long skirts at that moment..
My little brother was in his Skate-board phase  :) :)  whahahahha
So funny to see old pictures

You all know Noah is doing Judo.. He still loves it..
Now he is 8, so he is in the U10 group
That means when he has a compitition he needs to go up to kids who are 8-9-10 years old. 
That's hard fo him.. but so far he still likes it!!
Here a picture of that one of the last compititions he did. 
After he lost all his matches.. we went to the real Judoka.. 
Noah got his signature and I took a picture
 It's a very big men... while we where there he talked.. and a host asked him to take off his shirt...
Ow my.. .......
I need to go more to Noah his mathes.. hihihi

Little Kira is done with swimming now she got her second diploma just before the summer..
So she wanted to do Judo too.
And she loved it!!
2 weeks ago there was a compition.. and after 1,5 months judo training so wanted to also join it.
So she did it!!
Togheter with Noah
She got her first diploma, she had so much fun.
2 lost and 1 a te.. I'm so very proud that she did it!!
That day we also baked Sinterklaas cake... as you can see here and carrot cake.. my favorite cake to bake.
It was a fun day.. soon both have another judo compitition.. 
can't wait!! the day for Xmas..

~ ♥  Running ♥ ~ 

Last post I told you I was going to enter my first ever Half Marathon!!
Yesterday it was that day

From around May I started to train longer runs.. Slowly was running more km's each time
3 weeks ago I did the 21.1 km.. for the first time
I walked from water to water... I live between it... so beautfull to walk...
AND...... I run it in 2 hours!!

So yesterday when I had my real run that was my mission
BUT... last monday I got sick... wednesday I got even sicker, and also had 2 night shifts... 
I worked them... then saterday evening I had a evening shift also.. but was feeling a bit better, only tired..
Then sunday (yesterday) it was THE DAY

Together with my running-friend we went to the place. got there in time..
The plan to run in 2 hours wasn't in my mind..
But I wanted to run the first hour in the pace then maybe I still will get it in time.. and it was going so well. so after 1 our of running I tryed to run a little bit harder..
I can tell so many thing how I felt the last 5 km...
But let me tell you I DID IT!!
Hubby made this picture of me..
You can see the time..
My official time was 1:57:11....... In the 2 hours..
And without any pain...
When I was training I had a lot of troubles with my knees a few time I could not run for a  few weeks.. This was only the secoond time I run without pain a long distance..
I 'm so happy I run the Half Marathon.. and also so glad without any pain!!
Really hope I can keep it up

Next run is in 2 weeks.. it's in a very big city. and it;s at night...Two of my least favorite things...
I don't like big city's and Im afraid óf being in the dark outside =)..
I will run 15 km. over 7 bridges... 
This one I also hope to run in 2 hours.. hihihi
You will see more in a next post

Still need to look for another picture of my stitching piece.. but I do have one of the kids.
Kira is working on her piece for a few months new.. some time she pickes it up does a few stitching and put it in the basket again.. Slowly her Horse piece is getting there.
And she got a new one from her Grandma.. so for a while she will be busy.

Hi there......

So again.. as I hoped not to leave blogland to long, it has been more then 3 months again.
I just went looking to a few bloggers pages..
Blogloving is still not my friend.. every time i look i see very little new post..
Or just like me many have it to busy with other things
I will see.. but I really missed it, so again going to try to post more often.. not as often as I have done the last years..
I notice my Englisch got a bit worse too.. so need to work on it all.
In the last months I haven't sit still.
The ones who follow me on Facebook or Instagram ( btw I love instagram.. I learned so much in a year) Have seen some things I have done.
At the moment I work a little bit more ( just had a 42 hour work , normally I work 16 hours a week)
I have a few colleagues who are ill, some of them for a long time. 
As I can help a bit more , I work a bit more.

I will try to show you in this and the next posts what I made the last 6 months or so

~♥~  Stitching  ~♥~

A while back, my neighbor girl, celebrated her birthday, I always make something for her birthday, I really had now idea, so asked her what to make, she asked for a pillow, like Noah but then with dolphins. I found this alphabet in my stash, and started.
Used pink fabric so sewn it in to a pillow, only can't find that picture ( while I was looking found so many old phot's of the kids.. so it 45 minutes later that I started to type.. lol)
Really have now Idea where i put the pic.. who knows, I will find it again..
But I;m stitching a bit again as you can see

~♥~  Crochet  ~♥~

My neighbor boy ( brother of.. ) also had hs birthday and is crazy about dino's
Anyone seen the new move The Good Dinosaur??
He loves it.. so I made the Dino Arlo with the little boy Spot for him
You can imagine he was very happy with it 

~♥~  Sewing  ~♥~

Ow boy I found my love for sewing back.. totally back ..
The school picture was coming up last month.. and I wanted to make them both something new for the pic.. ( did the same they where 4 months old... )
I found the most aweosme STARWARS fabric for Noah, and horse for Kira.
Noah is sweater is only that fabric, the one of Kira is only the front horses tje rest the grey.
Both are made with the same pattern the Thor shirt from teh magazine La Masion Victor. My NEW favorite magazine.
For Kira I made it a bit longer so it's a dress
Just made a fast pic of one of the school-pic
Aren't they getting big??  ♥ ♥

~♥~  Running  ~♥~

I'm still running every week. Mostly I try to do it 3 times a week.. but with work and many appoitment in the week, sometimes I need to cancel a day
But I had a few races.
This summer had one a few towns a head.
Is was 10 km.
I did a awesome job.. ( I sat in the nightshift, but wnated to do that race)
I had the 156ste place from all man and woman
I had the 12th place from only the woman
And the 3the place on my age ( i'm still in 20+.. whahaha)
Also walked a PR .. it's my best time on the 10 km so far


Then I started to train with a friend on the beach For THE running event in the area
She took all the pics from me ( also the one from the 10 KM)

That training went vert well and the 30th of September I had 2 races on 1 evening.
First the 5 km.. that was the important one.. I was hoping to get a place in the top 10.. 
 I did a awesome job again!!!
I got the 7th place of this Ladiesrun!!
I'm really so proud on what I did 

A few ours later I did the other run, but that one was for run, did it with my running-friend
We just wanted to walk a fun time the 11.5 km..
As we got over the finish, we saw we did a great job
Last year did that race also in 1 hour 20 minutes, this year for the first time there was a time registration
I got 199th place from all the man and woman and the 41th place from only the woman..
So proud, as we just walked it to walk it

For that evening got two beautifull medals and flowers from my friends
It was so fun to run..

Hi all!!
There I 'm after all those weeks!!
And on a good day too
I'm telling everyone, I turned 23.. but as you all know.. I;m a bit older :O :O :O
This morning came out of the night shift, after some sleep went for grocery's.
My grandma came over with some beautifull flowers, and I started cooking.

Look at in what it turned out:

Scallops with lemon butter

Holland fish stew

Creme brulee  ( not selfmade, but self bought )

As you can see I'm a big seafood lover.. I bought fish I had never eat of cooked before..
I loved it so much.. mmmm
With the Kids I made agremeent. If they eat it all without to nag.. They got a yummy dessert.. bought something with chocolat..
All plates where took them a while.. but they deserved it!!
Noah eat with his eye's and nose closed hihihi


I had a very busy time, a lot of working, helping at school, activitis with kids.. etc etc etc 
In the evening I was tired.. to tired to read blogs, to tired to write a blog
Did some crafting.
I decided to take a break from blogland.. sometimes read some small blogs.. last week did some more reading, but I can find as many blogpost as I think that where written.
We are in our 3th week of the summer vacation, and mostly I saw rain...we had some lovely days, but not much.
I hoped in the vacation it would be a bit lesser busy.... NOT
Hubby is at home walking with crutches.. today he got gypsum ( my birthday present.)
So he can't do anthing.
normally I would say darling do you do this or that.. but now it's all on me, and as my vacation is over, I have to work a lot again, summertimes, many are on vaction or sick!!
I miss blogging al lot, but I need the time for me, I'm trying to get back on track, already posting more on facebook and Instragram.. seeing more are followng me there ..
But I will be back here too.
In september my schedule is a lot nicer... then you will see more of me again..
I have so many small projects to show to you..
I'm not crafting a lot.. at the moment the last time was a 1,5 week ago... but I'm enjoying my time!!

I hope you all have a lovely summer, for those of your who have sun and heat.. please send me a bit..
I'm dreaming of a real summer.. it has been years ago!!

Now of to bed .. a new day tomorrow!!!
