sinterklaas party

More than a week ago the biggest friend of children (just in Holland) Sinterklaas and his helpers Black Pieten, arrived in Holland.
We are very happy that he is here, becuase that means a lot of nice events and presents.
Last Saturday Sinterklaas was coming to dad's work, and here are some pictures of the party.
Below the pictures you'll find the story about Sinterklaas and his helpers.

Sinterklaas is a very old man. Nobody knows how old. He lives in Spain together with his helpers; Zwarte (black) Piet. There a lot of them. Sinterklaas loves children and a long time ago he dicided that every year on December 5th he celebrates his birthday with all kids in Holland.
In Spain he lives in a very big house. He has to, because the whole year through he is buying presents for all children in Holland.
Half November he gets on his boat together with all the pieten, his white horse Americo and a lot of presents.
the children send him letters with the presents they want to have. He writes down everything about the children in a big book together eith the presents they want to have.(only the nice will get presents so everybody has to behave the whole year).
When he arrives at the end of November there are a lot of children waiting and singing for him.

From that day every on child can put his/her shoe at the chimney at least once.
They put in a nice drawing, some water and a apple or carrot for the horse. At night when everybody's sleeping Black Piet will come and put in a small present and some chocolate.

And than on the big day december 5th, all kids are very excited, because at night there will be lots of presents for those who have been sweet.
They announce themselfs by banging on the door or windows, really hard. And when you go to the doar there a big bags filled with lots of presents.
The lucky kids will have a visite from Sinterklaas or Black Piet. It's a mystery how they enter the house, but they wil bang on the door and start throwing with candy.
They will help unpack the presents and then will leave to visite other kids.
The kids can play with their new toys for a little while and than it's time for bed.
the next day Sinterklaas and his pieten are leaving to Spain again and do the kids have to wait a year before he returns to Holland again.

That's the story about our Sinterklaas. Sounds a bit like Santa, but they only know him in Holland.
Thank you for stopping by,

Belated Haloween gift

Take a look what arrived this morning by mail.
Some jummy chocolate and two beautifull haloween cards from our friends Zoe and Danni.
Mail came in early this morning. Before 8 am just when we were having breakfast.
Mum didn't think it was a good idea to eat our chocolate right away, so we had to wait untill we came back from school.
Thank you very much for the candy, cards and great gift :) Zoe and Danni, we love it.

Britt at her swimminglesson

Don't I look cool in my swimmingsuit???
I'm taking swimminglessons for about 3 months now, and I really love it.
With this suit I can't drawn and I had to jump in the big pool the first lesson.
They use really great words for every move we have to make.
When we have to swim on our back they yell: frog - plane - pencill.
Those words tell me how I have to move my legs.
Right now I only have floaters on my back and pretty soon I have so swim with my clothes on.
I also have to learn how to dive and swim through a whole at 9 meters from the start.
I'm half way right now, but with floaters in my suit it's isn't easy to stay under water.
Take a look at the pictures mum took of me at one of my swimminglessons.

Thanks for watching,
Hugs Britt

Crafty Monkeys Challenge: Favorite Color

Over at Crafty Monkeys the challenge this time is to use your favorite color.
We both are totaly crazy about pink. Pink toys, pink schoolbags, pink clothes and even our toothpaste is pink.
Here's my (Britt) card.
As you can see I also love blue, but I chose those papers because there are pink flowers on it.

And here's my (Ruby) card.

I made a card for a boy. In these days boys also wear pink, and I have a male friend that loves pink, so why not a pink boycard.

Thanks for looking.

Big hugs,

Ruby and Britt
