Museon with Mirre

This afternoon Tom took Evie and her good friend Mirre to the Museon in The Hague. Museon is a science museum filled with fun stuff for kids. The current exhibit about science changing the world went a little over their heads, but they had fun!

Kite Festival

This afternoon was the kite festival at the beach. Tom took the kids there where they saw all sorts of fun fliers in the sky.


This morning Evie started to make a quilt for her new baby cousin expected in February. This is her first time sewing, and luckily Grandma Nan was here to teach her. She ended up doing all the stitches in the quilt, including some hand stitching at the end. Unfortunately, we didn't get a picture of the finished product.
Evie is really sewing!

Helping Grandma

While Grandma Nan is here she has been working on a couple baby quilts. Evie is very interested in the whole process. Here we got some photos of Grandma cutting, while Evie arranges the squares. On the agenda for tomorrow: sewing lessons!

Grandma Nan

After almost a year of not visiting, Grandma Nan safely arrived in Holland this morning! The kids were especially happy to see her and gave her lots of cuddles.

She brought a couple new books about Maine, which of course had to be read at once.
Later this week Liz will have be having her tonsils out, so it will be nice having some extra help around the house.
