Then my little neighbor boy turned 1 year just before New Year's eve, and his mother likes owls.
So I thought maybe it would be nice to make a owl rattle.
I made it without a pattern, just looked at a pinterest pin.
With real boy colors. 
Happy that the little boy was.. he put it in his mouth.
It also makes sounds so a great job on it.

Those are beautifull crochet dolls, soon I'm going to make a real big one.
But for start I wanted to make a mini.
Those pattern are re-designed by many people in to mini's.
And those are really tooooo cute too.
Look at my cutie-pie
I crochet het with Stone Washed, love love love this new thread, The face/hands/scarf are made with Catania.
Isn't she cute??
More Lalylala's and mini Lalylala's will come this year.. a awesome pattern and easy to make.

Baking is back in our home ( never was really gone).
And kids are making it now all totally alone..

Want do you think , should they like it??

Look at this pic's

 It has been more then a year ago that we made these.. ( bad bad mommy) but the cookie yar was full again with this egg-cookies, only egg's, sugar, flour and baking powder... but so so yummy..
Kids take them to school.

Then this is a new thing, and it will not be the last time I ( we) made them.

yum yum.. are you drooling already???
Just make Pancake mix, put it in a muffin tin. One tin was made with only the mix, in teh other one we did raisins and apple.

As you can see the kids did it all.
I only told what they had to do it, how to do it, and how much.
We at them as a lunch, it where 24 muffins, after lunch ( and DH only tryed one, HE DOENST LIKE PANCAKES?????????) there where only 6 left... 
So we can conclude they where very yummy.

Since two weeks I bake every Tursday in Noah's class in school. There I tryed these both recepi's too.
The kids love it..
I'm already thing of what to bake next.. so more baking will come.

+ + +

As Kira turned 4 years, she now also goes every day to school..
I'm so happy that she likes it.. ( mommy missing having kids in the house very very much)
Here a pic of the first morning she went for a whole day,  The kids called me that I needed to take a picture of them

How about you having snow???

Since the great snow we had on third Xmas, it was not much..
This picture is taken this morning

And last week I had also such a pic
Where is the 15 cm I ordered????
But thankfully last week at my Sil's they had a lot of snow in Belgium, so Kids could play.
We went inside, congratz to every one.. then kids wanted to play outside.. hihi...
They are so happy when they see snow.
 They have a very very very big garden

 Snow fight with Grandpa
In the evening we went for a big walk in the woods in the snow.. it was cold fun and wet.. At the end kids didn't like it so much anymore as they where cold and wet, but had fun in the snow

Kira's 4th birthday

Thank you all for your sweet comments on my last post.
♥ ♥ ♥
We had troubles gettinng the photo's off the camera's on the laptop.. but it finally worked in a other way.

DH is still working on it to do it on my laptop..
But here finally is the post

Last weekend was the day.. Kira's 4th birthday.
That Friday, she had for the first time her kids-party.

We first eat pancakes, are there kids who doens't like pancakes???
I don't know them.. hihihi.

After the Pancakes, we tryed to make jewelry, Dh and I helped al lot. I don't have a picture if them all, but from a few, with two girls I make earrings, Hubby with Noah and a boy bracelets, and Kira and a other girl a necklace. They liked it, but also it was a bit hard still. so will try it again.. neighbor girl wanne come back and do it again.
After that ......  sugar time ..... we decorated cupcakes.. I made the cupcakes in the morning with the butter-cream, the kids could put it on that with help rom me, and then decorate it woth color balls and other things.. They had a lot of fun with it.
And as last we draw and cut and glue al kind of thing with a Frozen theme!!

As you maybe now, Kira is totally crazy about Frozen, expecially Elsa the snow Queen

So we made her birthday a little bit in Elsa/Frozen style..
I started to late, so didn't made much, but it was just enough, and she liked it that was the most important thing.

I made some snowflakes to hang all over the living room, made some Frozen hanger. and her presents of course
Kira run downstairs in too the living to her dress.
She came back to me.. mommy mommy thank you thank I love you..
That made my heart skip one beat. ♥
First time she tryed it on.. I was very curious if it would fit, as I didn't use a real pattern and fit it before. I wanted it to be a surprise.

She felt like a real princess, a Frozen princess, Elsa...
 I totally forgot to make a picture of her hair. I made the same braid as Elsa did and I had made her 6 hair pins with snowflake on them.

Dear Rita made the snowflakes for me last year with her machine.. I can't cute that beautifull.
And so it's easier. and dear Rita loved doing it.
I send her the felt and she send me back the snowflakes.. to sweet ♥ =)))

On the table you also can see Frozen shoe's. When kira and I where shopping last week, I found them, and could not leave them in the store. so we bought them. A few sizes to big, so she can wear them for a long time.

Kira is totally in love with dolls/cuddles.. and handmade are so fun too.
So I made a normall doll, and finished her off as a Elsa Doll.
And it worked out as I had in my mind.

♥ * ♥ * ♥

Can you understand that Kira loved her presents....

♥ * ♥ * ♥

Then as it was a sunday birthday party we always do a lunch then, because many family have to drive a while and Monday ear;y going to work.
So Kira and I made started to make a lunch..
We had  a lot of fun in the kitch.. ( 3 day's of cooking.. how fun is that)
I made stuffed eggs, chorizo-twisters, Ciabatta-bread, mushroom-soup.
Above right are sweet cinnamon rolls. they where yummy... omg.. I really have to make them again!!!

Made a salad, yummy meat/cheese, little baked bread, and some things for on them..

Also two differents Apple pie's..

I like making those, and , most like them too.

But every birthday I make a special pie..
This time wanted to make a Frozen one.
What I did with Noah's birthday a Starwars picture. I wanted to do again.
So ordered one, made a bigger cake then normal, and started decorating..

Kira was in love.. and it was very yummy too.!!!

Kira was spoiled so much..
So got a beautifull Frozen duvet.
It sleeps very great!!
She asked and got some money to but some Frozen things she wants.. They are out if store, so we have to wait a little while. 

But you can all imagine, she had a magical day!!

It's a bit of a Dutch saying.
A lot has happend last year, at the end it was to much.
It's going a bit better.
Slowly I;m getting there, it will be a long way, but I;m on the right side of the road.

Togheter with Noah's girlfriend we made Xmas tree out of felt and beads.. Kira has a pink one hanging in the kitchen, with Frozen Xmas ball from Hama Beads next to it..

And as Kira also wanted as Xmas tree I crochet her one, and decorated it with beads for on her kitchen
