I also haven't been around a lot the last few weeks. School is crazy just before Christmas holliday, but now I've finally 2 weeks holliday...yaaaaaay!!!  Cheesy So I'll have time again to show Giles around. Saturday I'll be going to a Christmas market in Germany with my parents, there'll be some parties and cookie baking with friends.

Some time ago we went to an old fashioned Dutch pancake restaurant.


The entrance:


And we had some good pancakes of course


Today we took a picture of the big Christmas tree in our city centre to wish you all

Merry Christmas and a Happy & Crafty New Year![/color][/b][/size]

Wow things have been busy here. On november 24 Sinterklaas arrived here and today, the 5th of december is the end of the festivities.

Just before the arrival we enjoyed a cold, but beautiful morning


Gilles was there to welcome the "Sint" when he arrived in his boat:


I made two videos of the event that I uploaded on Youtube:

We made some traditional "pepernoten" (little speculoos spiced "biscuits")


Together with my son he met Sinterklaas..


..enjoyed some decorations and saw some Black Peters


And we had quite some presents..


For us Christmas will be quiet time  Wink

It amazes me how big Disney world is and that there are more parks. Must take ages to see everything...

Yesterday Sinterklaas arrived in the country (yes he's said to arrive from Spain  Wink) and we put our shoe in the living. Next morning we found presents in our shoes and there was also something for Giles:



Inside was a little home made present

(it's an ear cuff, I've been making quite a lot of them the last few days)

We made some croissants from scratch with a traditional French recipe

they were so good... Grin

And this afternoon we took Giles to the museum of antropology


he did some relaxation and meditation in the buddha room


and smiled when he saw the picture of these Maori men

Good thing to give blood, but even the crocheted blood drop gives me the creeps  Roll Eyes

We took Giles to the botanical gardens and enjoyed the autumn colours


The Japanese maple is so pretty!


The Victoria Amazonica in one of the tropical green houses.

And he coudn't read the sundial because, well there was no sun ;-)

And she sent along some nice whimsical thingies and a fantastic postcard (which is not in the picture).
