Ah well, we made it in time. There were singing and the nativity play then the handing over presents to their teachers. There were the Happy Christmas' and the Goodbuy's and the see-you-soon's to do before we headed home.
Now we have two weeks off before school start again.

The Christmas tree arrived Saturday morning, delivered by our fairy who sits in the top, and the princess and little man have decorated it.
We are all very much looking forward to Christmas and can't wait to relax and watch Christmas films.
Are you looking forward to Christmas?

Both the princess and the little man were looking forward to going back to school though. They both love school and had missed their friends. Also they the princess was off to see the musical Chicago with her dancegroup last night. It's one of the teachers from the dance/drama/sing company where she dances that was directing the musical. All the kids got to go backstage and then see the dress rehearsel afterwards. She was home late for a school night but it very rarely happens so we agreed it was okay. She's promised to not be moody this morning and she did keep her promise. She's up, dressed and eating her cereal.
Oooh, I finished my 22nd book this year. I'll make that a post for tomorrow or Thursday. It's a good book.
Have you had a good weekend?

Now half term is nearly over and Monday it's back to school. Today we went Halloween shopping just the kids and I. The little man also bought himself a game for the X-Box. He had saved up and handed over a lot of coins to the lady behind the counter. It took a while to for her to count but it was all there.

We won this lovely Birthday cake from our local bakery. My sister and mum had entered the princess and little man in a compatition in the local paper. We were able to pick it up the day the little man had his Birthday party. How lucky is that!
The cake was meant for both children as their Birthdays are only a month apart. The little man got to blow out the candles though. His big sister is way to cool for doing that now she's 10 apparently.
The cake is normal sponge cake with melted brown sugar on top as well as marcipan, icing and lots of sweets. It's a very traditional Danish Birthday cake but Nana and Papa who was over from England loved it too. Nana got the recipe of the internet so she can attempt to bake one back in England. We will look forward to that next time we visit.
Have a lovely Sunday.

"you look like a filmstar, mummy"
When you come out from the bathroom on a Monday morning.
I nearly asked her what she wanted or needed me to do or what she'd done but decided not to. Maybe she did just mean I looked amazing.
Well, I chose to believe that's what she meant.
It's going to be a lovely day.

We left Denmark in a very heavy fully packed car and drove to Bremen where we stayed overnight. The next day we drove on to the Hook of Holland to catch the overnight ferry to Harwich. We arrived in England at Nana and Papa's on a Sunday morning nearly a month ago. 2pm lots of family members showed up for the big family football game. The daddy had arranged it all from the comfort of the sofa back in Denmark. The little man was the youngst player and the daddy and the little man's team won 9-1. They claim it was fair play....
The day after the family football it was the princess' 10th birthday. She chose her birthday cake and got her biggest wish fullfilled. She finally got a mobile phone. We stayed with Nana and papa for a little over a week, had fun with our little cousin, had yummy food, flew kites and relaxed. We went to London for the day, saw it all (not really but most of the turist bits) and finished of the day going to see The Lion King. It was amazing. After London and Nana's amazing brunch the next day we drove to Nottingham. We spent 3 lovely days there before heading north to Newcastle and a little further north to Walwick where we were staying with friend we haven't seen for many years. Turned out they live on top of part of Hadrians Wall. They took us to a museum where we learned all about Hadrian, his wall and the Romans. We had a great time with them and by far not enough time. We had to get a ferry back to Amsterdam from Newcastle. A little over a week ago we arrived in Amsterdam at 9.30am. We drove home the same day and arrived at our house in Denmark at 9.30pm tired but happy having had an amazing holiday. Prepare for a massive amount of pictures below.

We have now entered the 3rd week of the school holiday and we are still enjoying just being at home and relaxing. The children have had a few playdates and spent a lot of time making these. They look on the internet for ideas.
Tomorrow the little man is off to Legoland with a friend and his family. The princess is off to her friends summerhouse to play for the day.
We are then celebrating the princess' birthday (a bit early as she wont be 10 until Monday) with the Danish side of the family tomorrow night.
Because Friday we're off to England on holiday YEAH!! My mum are staying in our house to look after Muffin the cat and to watch all the tv channels we have and she doesn't. Don't tell her I said that.....
We can't wait to go on holiday and this year we're visiting Nottingham and Newcastle both places we have never been before. First though we're spending 1½ week at Nana and Papa's.

Yesterday was midsummer and here in Denmark it's celebrated with bon fires everywhere. We even put a witch at the top to burn. No, of course not a real one! But I do agree it's weird.... Anywho, we went with the children to the nearest beach to watch. It was lovely.
Friday the children's summer holiday starts. 6 weeks where I don't have to set the alarm for 05.55am. Love it.
Oh forgot to show our 2 new garden gnomes. Aren't they cute??
