Dude #2 turned 10 and he loves the Despicable Me movies so a theme for his party was soon found.
I made sweet Minion birthday cakes, angry minion cupcakes, decorated cookies with edible minion prints and of course the M&M’s and skittles were sorted in matching colors.
When boys get to the teenager age, there comes a time when kiddie parties are no longer appreciated. Good thing I can still go all out on the big grown up party …. Dude #1 loves the Simpsons so that was his theme for his 12th birthday bash.
We served cakepops brownies, oreo’s, choc chip cookies, brownies, mini donuts, M&M’s, hamburger candy, red licorice.
As you can see the top cake (I alway smake 2 layers) was donutshaped and that posed for some decorating challenges with the marzipan. But I rocked the bottom layer though !
Stuff that happened in Daan’s life this month (photo & info overload):
Queensday was a bit of a dissapointment, my total score has never been so low; 4 boxes of embroidery floss & 2 tupperware items…. I’m going to Alkmaar next year with Corinne Delis 😉
I went to the Beautician for the first time in years, i used to go every month but since the kids this became less and less. It was only a basic appointment but I definately want to go again and for an extensive one soon !
My paypall account was hacked, that is not a joke people … It takes all kinds of hassle to get this fixed !
The boys took part in the peanutball school tournament, they won 🙂 Although Ed, who played coach for both their teams, told the boys all games were a draw 😉 They loved being the best in their team and sometimes it feels great to rock and show off for your classmates.
I went to the springmarket in Heemstede with my mom, sun was shining, it was fun ! Said hi to Danielle Muit-Krusel who was working there and ran into my friend Leonieke, it was a huge market with a wide variety of stalls.
We gave the garage a good reorganisation, basically it was a lot of trash and putting shelves in to give things a new place; we can finally fit all of our bikes.
We watched a bunch of movies;Cadillac Records.
He was really tired as they started around 18.00 and the last match was @ 22.00 ….
Made a bunch of felt hearts, cause i fell in love with Revlie’s forest of felt hearts. Just need to find some time to attach them to sticks to make a forest…..
At 40 years old I still have never been to the Zuiderzeemuseum, so we wanted to do something cultural and took the kids. It was fun, and not so busy so we got a great tour in one of the fishers family homes, the kids got to lie in a bedstead and play some oldfashioned kids games.
The boys had a day off from school and since Michael was going away for the day so we went out for lunch with Colin at a goatsfarm in Amstelveen, he got to feed them bottles, play a little on the playground and we had a good walk in the woods. But mind you goats are not only cute, playfull and they like to eat your clothes …
Colin & I both got glasses, Colin needed them for school and watching tv from a distance. Appearantly he has trouble reading beyond 4 mtrs, the letters are distorted to him but he refused to admit it even after tests. He can grow out of it but for now he has a pair at school (orang/black) and a pair at home (green/black). I got mine as I kept getting headaches at work because of my increased computer screen work. Here they are :
We had a spontanious dinner with Michael’s bball team, wow that was a big group but we sat all the kids at one table and all the adults at one and it worked out fine @ a wok restaurant.
You know what can really make my day ? When I pipe a perfect rose swirl on a cupcake, makes me smile every time I see the pic
That’s it for May folks, sorry for not keeping up weekly updates …
