Consumption

Ha lasagna

Thanks to my lovely dad! This one was a variation with aubergine and more cheese.

Who needs cutlery when there are hands available?

Crafty Sunday

Tarek spent all day building an insect hotel. First he assembled the parts and painted and varnished some of them. Then we all went for a nice long walk to find things to fill up the hotel with.

What’s  the logic of putting on a jacket when it rains? It’ll only get wet!

image

After Tarek filled the rooms with different materials he used clay to fill up the final one. And the result?

image

Pretty cool huh? Lets hope the insects agree. Afterwards we were all treated to a family favourite:

Lasagne a la Hein.
We kind of had to eat something very tomatoey because mum went crazy and bought a whole big box of tomatoes.

Reunited

As if we weren’t having enough fun already, Opa and Oma arrived today! Even more fun to be had. Starting with a splendid dinner in the evening sun.
My brother got so excited he could hardly sleep. He has declared he wants to stay in Portugal. I still miss Ma (Max), Pétje (Peter) and Mam (Juf Martha). But Opa, Oma, Hein and Maya aren’t too bad to hang out with. And Tarek is my safety net…  whenever he enjoys himself, I have a pretty good time myself.

Out and about

Christmas break would not be complete without a visit to Opa & Oma. The weather was windy,  the museum was closed. It didn’t matter because we had a great time regardless.

Building a hut (and eating our oliebollen in there!).

Going on walks despite the weather.

And consuming lots and lots of Opa & Oma made treats!

By the time we returned home we were absolutely exhausted.

A refreshing walk/cycle before the guests arrive.

The next day we went to Amsterdam where we met up with some more members of Mayas family.

Quite some more……
