WheeeeThis is taken before it started snowing again and being, like, -4 every day. We had one or two nice days when it was a scorching 6 or 7 degrees and had fun at the playground. Sanne took this one on the way home from the daycare – the colours are great!


Happy Christmas!

Seems like most of the photos are on the other camera card, or our telephones. Still, this one is reasonably sharp, so it’s better than nothing. At least you can see how big she’s getting!

Happy Christmas everyone!


Edelsmeden Leeuwarden

Ever since Parnas (the Arts Centre) closed, Sanne has been working on starting her own business up. Well, they’ve found an address and got the keys, and now the website is up and running. Well… there’s a placeholder site up to get the information out. The real site will come soon… promise!
You can check it out at – including a few photos of the master at work!

15 months old

And I do like this picture. Isobel is now running around like a bumper car and shouting the names of things. All beasts are either cats or bears, everything else is a door!

Quick update

Well, it’s June already! In the last month, Isobel has mastered the art of walking. Still no new teeth, though they are all visibly lurking under the surface.
Sanne’s dad took a gorgeous picture – hope you like it as much as we do!

One year old!

Friday 23rd of March was Isobel’s first birthday! Blimey – was that a year already?
We’d a birthday tea on Friday and then on Saturday we’d a proper party lunch – with Barbapapa birthday cake! After that we went to the city farm and she saw her first sheep, pigs, lambs, goats, horses, peacocks, swans and rabbits. She was knackered after all that!
She got all sorts of presents, wore a lovely dress from Auntie Irene, rode her pushbike, hammered with her new blocks and generally had a great weekend… and so did we!
On Sunday we hung up her swing (thanks Paul & Yvonne) and she was over the moon all over again.

Here’s a few photos to be going on with…
