Monday Tuesday.

Yes I know I haven’t been around much but sometimes life gets in the way. And I have been really busy.First of all two of our grandchildren had their birthday party . As you can see on the photo’s Megan is sweet sixteen now and Mike did become eleven. Megan did bake her own birthday cake, not this one but one simular like this one on the photo. It was beautiful and delicious.That was eaten by about 30 of her friends and they loved it.

Megan also started her own blog . Here is the link
Today she is showing her own made birthday cake. Could you please commen and maybe follow her?

Then I also was very busy with my new found hobby. Making quilts. I did stop some years ago , started again last year and now I have been taking lessons once more. I did write about it in my other blog :

And today we went for a walk in our neighborhood. We have full spring here and in every garden everything is in full bloom.So beautiful. Good for some nice pictures.

Van harte gefeliciteerd met de verjaardagen van je mooie kleinkinderen! Leuk en lekker dat je kleindochter zelf een taart gebakken heeft.

Wat hebben we mooi weer hè? Ook de komende dagen krijgen we veel zon bij een aangename temperatuur. Dat wordt dus weer genieten van alles wat in bloei staat.

Ik wens je een fijne week. Liefs, Ingrid

Van harte gefeliciteerd lieve
Rietje me Megan en Mike. Wat
worden ze al groot en Megan al
een hele dame, zo lief om te zien.
Knap dat zij zo'n fantastische
taart heeft gemaakt. Heb het ook
al op haar blog geschreven.

En wat een SUPER mooie collage van
wat je zoal tijdens een heerlijke
wandeling bent tegen gekomen.
Wat treffen we het hé, het lijkt
wel compleet zomer op dit moment.
Het is echt genieten met een grote G.

Wens je een mooie week toe,

Veel liefs,

You must know that most of us are envious of spring having arrived for you Riet.
Your granddaughter is lovely and her cake looks delicious. Happy birthday to both your grands.

Hello Riet,

What gorgeous grandchildren you have. I visited Megan as you suggested. What a talented young lady.

I'm looking forward to reading your comment on my post. Please come back.

Have a Happy Blue Monday!

Van harte gefeliciteerd met de verjaardagen van de kleinkinderen, Riet
Je laat met je bloemencollage mooi zien dat momenteel een feest is om buiten te zijn met al die frisse voorjaarskleuren. Wat een verschil met vorig jaar, toen liepen eind maart de eenden hier nog over het ijs.

Your grandchildren are beautiful Riet!
We are so lucky to have them aren't we - they spark up our lives!

I'm so glad Spring has arrived for you in the Netherlands! I know you are happiest when you can get out and capture all the beauty with your camera lens!

I want to make a quilt this winter (coming soon for me) so I will pop into your other blog and see what you're doing!

I will pop over and say hello to Megan!


Deb @ Frugal Little Bungalow said...

She is lovely ..I'll go over and see her cake. And I do recall you showing a quilt or two for Mosaic Monday but it was ages ago so I'll be over to the quilt blog as well.

And oh what lovely flowers! :)

Madelief said...

Mooie foto's van je kleinzoon en kleindochter Riet! Nog van Harte Gefeliciteerd! Je hebt groot gelijk om te genieten van alle feestjes en leuke dingen die het leven te bieden heeft. Achter de laptop zitten kan altijd nog. Vooral met dit mooie weer kun je beter buiten zijn!

Ik wens je een fijne week toe!

Liefs van Madelief x

It is birthday week in our family too. My friend is nuts about quilting. She got me to take a class with her one year but it is just not my thing. It does take a very creative person to put a quilt together with all those choices of colors.

Hannah said...

Events with grandchildren are so special. They look just like you! Your flower mosaic is so colorful and spring-y.

Unknown said...

Beautiful pics...have a nice day!

Sallie (FullTime-Life) said...

Beautiful garden flowers and wonderful family celebration! Your grandchildren are so good-looking and obviously bright and talented!

I am glad to know your absence from blogging was due to wonderful happy reasons.

June said...

Your grandchildren are beautiful dear Riet! Happy Birthday to them both!
I am so glad you are getting some spring weather. Your collage of the spring blooms is beautiful! The grass is barely starting greening up here, so the blooms are a way off yet.
Have a lovely weekend dear friend!
hugs from here...

You have lovely grandchildren! I'm jealous of all that spring beauty. We're still colder than average and waiting for things to turn green.

Wat een prachtige foto's van je kleikinderen. Heel mooi en het ziet er gezellig uit.

Die andere foto's zijn natuurlijk ook mooi.

Fijn weekend.
