3e kerstdag (third christmasday)

Yes it's me again ;)
Today it's '3rd' christmasday, Etienne really hates this when someone says this. ;) We celebrate 1st and 2nd christmasday here in the Netherlands, because the day after that is a sunday, many people call it a 3rd.
Have you seen my new blogheader, I thought it was time for a little change, a pic with both the boys.
How was your christmas? The first we had a nice breakfast together and in the afternoon we went to my parent where we had a really nice diner with my sister too.
The 2nd day we were home, didn't do much, just chillin' ;) On our dinner was a fishgourmet. The boys didn't feel like sitting stil at the table for a very long (actually also not for a short time...) So not really a succes... Maybe next year...
Today we went to Scheveningen to walk a little on the beach and we went to Sealife, ate early at Binkie Beer. A nice day.

A fun pic before 1 of the 2 christmastrees. It's hard to get a good one of both the boys...



Tristan loves shoes ;) Here his is in my snowboots, he really is a clown.
Camiel, he looked so handsome in his christmas outfit =)

I asked my sister to take a picture of us 4, the weather was gray so I had the ISO high, result really grainy pics :(
And a new LO, made with the Studio Calico kit Orchestra. Which was so yummy, right Petra ;)
I'm in love with the month stamps, I think I'm gonna use them on every Lo, or is that a bit over the top??
1 add-on contained a printer tray by 7Gypsies, planning to make something really soon with that. And today was the reveal of the new kit already, again gave in and ordered 2 add-ons, a my credit card... ALso ordered another printer tray in white this time. Fun stuff.
Eindelijk (finally)
Everytime I look for a good picture of my mom and Camiel, I found nothing... Funny faces, closed eyes (especially my mon ;) ) But finally in France I got my picture!!

I am home the whole week together with the kids. And we go the weekend of newyears eve to a Landal Green park in Drente together with friends who have 3 kids. So that gonna be fun I think.

it's me =)

So what have we done the last month, lots!!

We celebrated Sinterklaas at my work, at daycare (T), at school (C).

We celebrated pakjesavond(presentevening 5 dec.) at our friends home, were Sinterklaas also came to visit us himself. Look at Camiels face...

Tristan was a little afraid.
They got lots of presents!
We had sick boys.
We had a birthday boy, 5 years already. He loved his present (hotweels track), yes more presents...

Blowing candles.
His first birthdayparty with kids from school at an indoor playground.

Lots of snowfun.
Building a snowman. Which had disappeared the next morning, I didn't know snowmen could walk...
Sledriding.
Want to see some of my latest LO's?

Droomland (dreamland)
I wanted to document the sleepinghabits of Tristan. I used 3d foam for the clouds, love the effect.
Sinte sinte Maarten...
Celebration at Camiel's school, kind of Halloween but without te dressing up part.
Love the fun effect of the background paper (BG), although I also love the backside of this paper. But I needed to choose ;) The monthstamp(s) is by Studio Calico (love it!)
Tree/boom
I was in a creative mood, so I made 2 these canvases (I think) for our living room. I used lots of gesso and Claudia Helmut multi medium matte. On both I used a quote about trees, 1 in dutch and 1 in english.

Tristan
Had this pictures as left over of gifts we gave the baby's at daycare when he move over to the toddlers. I wanted to used them to document that. I used doileys, multi-medium matte and mist as background. Again in a creative mood ;)
Play
Tristan on the playground behind our house.
Love
One for my love :) I made of few lovely pictures in the woods last fall, this is one of them .
Strike a pose
This is what I get when I as for a picture ;)
a.k.a.
This picture was also made in the woods, love it. Documenting some nicknames we have for Tristan. :o)

So that's it for now. I have lots more older Lo that I didn't show yet. Maybe in a later post, wish I was better in posting, but I just hate adding pictures in blogger, is that only me. Especially when you have lots. Maybe there is a better way, I don't know how.
If I don't speak to you anymore, I wish you all lots of christmas fun!
Hugs
Astrid
