Weekend update!

Weekend went by very quickly! We spent the whole afternoon at the football fields for Chris. They are having tournament for these three saturdays, two more to go and then the season is off till September again.
Last saturday, they had played four times to different teams and they've won all four so they were the first on their category. We were so in a hurry to leave that midday i forgot to take my camera with me, glad one of the mother's has her camera so here's a picture of the boys with their medals.

Sunday, mother's day, Grace and Chris came and woke us up at around nine with a tea tray and presents. So we had all tea together on our bed while opening what they've made and bought. Chris painted a flower pot at school and placed seeds on it, he can't remember anymore what's the name of the plants...
Grace painted a flower in watercolours and it came out great. I hope to frame it soon.
Aside from that, their father took them to the shops last friday for them to picked what they've like to give me. They've picked up lotion(Nivea, and a big one as i use that daily), shower gel and perfumes. Isn't that great of DH!!
After all that, we prepared and been to MIL's place. Together with Kees two sister's we bought her a terrace bench as she've thrown the old one last month.
For dinner, Kees had reserved a table at a restaurant where he especially asked if they have a children's corner. When we got there, the table was really close by the area for the kids to play, i know how small kids can be very noisy so i asked if we can have a table a bit further away as Chris showed no interest in joining the small ones to play. he's 7 and he feels big enough and doesn't want to join the smaller ones (ages 2- 7). We had both their game boys so they were busy with that.
Anyway, everything went well and we had a nice meal...!

This is a small finished recently.

Thanks so much for dropping by and the nice comments on my recent biscornu finishes.
