Back to normal life...
...for as long as it takes… Tuesday the kids went back to school after 2 weeks and 1 day vacation.
It were two lovely weeks filled with a lot of holidays (Queens day, May 4th, Liberation day (may 5th), Ascension day, my SIL’s birthday, Whitsun and Mothers day). We had our traditional Family May vacation week with my in laws. We started going away with the whole family once a year in 1987.
My parents in law, their 5 children, the boyfriend of their daughter (who is now my BIL) and their sons girlfriend (Me :)). One week in one house with 9 people was fun already, sometimes friends of the children came along and we always had a good time. By now we are 20 (9 grandchildren) and that number might even get a little bigger in the next couple of years :)
This year we went to Kalenberg in the Weerribben. A beautiful little village in the middle of a gorgeous environment. With a lot of water, canals, little lakes… just wonderful. The weather was amazing and because it’s so early in the year there were no mosquitoes at all. We brought 3 little boats and spend a lot of our time on the water. It was just great! I took over a thousand pictures and I just can’t make a selection of which ones to show so I’ll keep it to just this one of the 9 grandchildren together:
On Sunday (mothers day) the kids brought me breakfast in bed, Marlijn sang me a sweet little song which we video taped. I would love to share it but I haven’t found out how to get it up on the blog yet :(
In the afternoon we went to the camping place where my parents are and surprised my mom who didn’t know that we were coming. We brought dinner and had a lovely afternoon!
On Monday I did a demonstration at Kars with the new Prima products Kars is stocking in the next couple of months. Mmmmm, yummy, yummy!!! Clear books, clear paintables, overlays, felt ribbon, felt matties, crystals (oh, just LOVE those cute little angel wings!!!), embossed cardstock and mini albums, gorgeous paper, flowers and much, much more!!!
Now vacation is over… but…. Only 6 more weeks ‘till summer vacation, yay!!!
Anyway… I started scrapping again yesterday.... and now blogging…. And I logged in to my bloglines this morning to find out that you girls made 931 new entries that I missed…. Ohmygosh… 931! Where do I start????
I don’t even dare login to SIS-tv…. I’m afraid the list of new LO’s won’t fit on my computer, hehe!!
So I guess I’ll just have to start with the first and see where it ends, huh?
I’ll leave you with this LO I made of Marlijn. Most times she doesn’t care that I constantly take her picture, a lot of times she even poses for me. But every once in a while it’s just enough for her and no matter what I say to her she refuses to smile JThis one was published in the November issue of Scrapbook Inspirations.
Thanks for stopping by! Hope to see you soon on YOUR blog, hehe!!
