Hello there! I didn't intend on taking such a long break from blogging, but life just happend. I started working (part-time) from home, about 3 days a week, assiting my previous boss in Germany (who also was my first boss ever many years ago) with different tasks and projects, Matilda started day care and it took a little while to adjust with everything. Also, I'm still helping out with our construction company a few nights a week.. But life is good! :)
I have a lot to catch on, but first I want to tell you about our amazing new years celebration we had.
About 2 months before new years eve one of my closest friends husband wrote to us and said that he wanted to surprise his wife Noelle with a new years eve party celebrating her turning 40 to which we almost immediately agreed. Our group of friends knows how to have a good time. It's so fun to think back that we celebrated Noelle's 30th in Rotterdam, my 30th in Frankfurt and now her 40th in Belgium. Next year we'll have to continue the tradition and celebrate my 40th (yikes, next year!)
So, after Christmas we drove to my parents and stayed for two nights. We also met up with my best friend Meike and her husband Fred whom I hadn't seen for 1,5 years as they live in Georgia, USA. It was her first time meeting Matilda and as you can see, they bonded right away. No wonder, Meike is awesome and has so many nieces and nephews :)
Our hosts, Noelle & Pierre aka Shmoelle and Peetou!
Luit and Esmeray had brought this latern which was at first hard to lighten as it was so windy outside and then it landed on a tree! But luckily the wind blew out the candle inside.. :)
After the kids were in bed we stayed up, played games and talked until late in the night. How I missed these guys!
This game was really cool. You had a chose a card from your deck and pick a name to represent it. Then everybody else had to pick a card representing that name. In the end we had to guess who had the first card.
Mia, my darling niece..
This is me pre-fall..
This is my sister-in-law Susan after her fall..
Yep, I tried to walk carefully and almost at the end I fell..
Noelle & Pierre, we love you :)
