congratulation on your day, HM

HM and MT

Project 365 - Baptism; Jan. 21.2007 Two years ago we celebrated with you that you got baptized. It was so great to be with you then – and I wish I lived closer so I could be come by and give you a hug today. You have been in my thoughts and prayer, though, and now I’m sending you this virtual hug. :D (Hopefully you mummy can bring it along for me) ;)

Hope to see you soon, I miss you – and MT misses you as well!!Happy Birthday H!

…still loving that hat ;)

friends in snow

The kid next door (more or less) visited us tonight. And we had fun playing in the snow in the evening :) I had to join them because of the darkness (it was scary tigers in the forest!) – and ended up with a nearly shoveled drive way and a big smile on my face from spending 1.5 hours OUTside. I loved it; that kind of took me by surprise and I look forward to other nights like this with some of MT’s friends over. It so great to have the snow here, it’s a whole lot – but manageable (at least after a few days of getting it out of the road….)

Anyhow. It’s late. Better find my bed. Good Night!friends in snow

I’m not loving the blitz at these photos, but I had to shot them quickly because the boy moved fast AND it was snowing on my camera(!) Next time I hope to get more photos of them too!

neighbor kid

Late last year we got a new neighbor, a boy at age 5. Could it be any more perfect? MT have missed going outside to find someone to play with – now he can almost do that (since he has to cross a heavy trafficked road he still has to bring his mummy along, but they have plenty of places to play both in the fields and forest that have no cars….).

The kid came to see us today. He brought his mother with him for security, since it was his first time visiting us, that was nice for me to get to know her a tiny bit more as well. But after a while her son told her to go home, he was okay being at our house on his own. It was so nice chatting with his mum, but I was also happy with him being comfertable being here on his own. I hope he’ll become a regular guest and play pal for MT; by summer I guess they will be hanging out, more or less, every day possible.

Happy birthday H!!

A little friend of ours is getting bigger! Happy birthday H :D

Happy Birthday H!
Loved your hat; photo from the days we spent together this summer. We wished to be with you on your day today as well, but can only send this blogy hug to you as a small token of our love!

Hope your day is SUPER and that mummy have baked plenty of cakes. Look forward to see you as soon as possible ;)

a nice long weekend

Note! I wrote this a week ago, but never published it.
I’ve added the photos and finally, here it is ;) The long weekend is August 14th – 18th, 2008.

It’s not long since I came back from vacation, but it was so good to have the weekend + a couple of days, free, last week. Days that we spent with our friend, family and IKEA ;)

Thursday we chilled out at home. Or that was the plan. I had a few scrap pages to finish and it took, off course, much longer time to finish than anticipated. (I don’t know why I still think that it will only go an hour doing a page?!?!?) Suddenly (to me) we were late, so I tried to finish my scrap while cooking dinner and packing at the same time. MT got to eat the dinner all alone with me running around trying to remember the important stuff. LOL. Then we just had to run because the bus was coming; we ran down and got there right on time. Puh! But the bus was late; if I knew I could have remembered to bring underwear for MT, or a t-shirt, or unplugged the laptop! (I’m so glad there wasn’t thunder storm that day)….. but didn’t dare to walk up again since the bus could come any time. And it did, after a 15 minutes wait or so. I ate my cold dinner at the bus.

My mom collected us from the bus and drove us the short trip home to the farm. Soon my friend Bea came as well and we enjoyed the evening together (at least, we all enjoyed it after Bea and dad fixed her car). As if this wasn’t company enough, my brother and family suddenly came by with their caravan (to place on the hill behind the farm house; best view in town ;)). MT had so much fun with his cousins and we adults chatted away; we even went for a little nightly walk.

Friday we woke up early. All of us tired. But thrilled (that goes for the adult), this was the going-to-IKEA day :D I think it’s over a year since last time, and I missed it so much. Fun to go with my friend too! MT didn’t find IKEA that funny, but he loved the play room and found himself a nice new animal.

The funniest thing was MT falling asleep while we looked around, I don’t know how he managed to sleep like this – but he sure did!
