Bye bye 2016!

As I left the house this morning to do some shopping, a little critter was watching me from behind the window.

I went to get treats for NY's eve tonight. This guy has pretty good treats and I don't seem to be the only one who knows this...

And then the clock struck midnight and the fireworks started! Happy new year!

The quiet time

I was all alone with Silver and it was lovely and quiet, just what I needed for a bit :-)

I played a few games of Hearthstone. I like this game very much and I'm getting better at it!

The 2017 COTM calender

This is one of Simone's mom's cats. She has beautiful eyes with a very nice grey coat.

I finally got my 2017 COTM (Car of the Month) calendars! My Mustang is featured on the November page. I'm very proud of this :-)

The skiing

Today the four of us went to an indoor ski place for a one hour class. It was the kids' first time on skis.

They both did very well. It was a bit of a refresher for Simone and me. It was fun :-)

Apres ski was pancakes!

And after that we went into Eindhoven, the biggest city nearby.

It was a fun day :-)

The tents

Simone and I went to look at tents. It might be a cheaper option for our holidays. This would be the one for Simone and me to sleep in and where the four of us can sit at a table to eat for example.

This smaller one would be for the kids to sleep in and store some of their stuff.

The above tents are made of cotton. There are also nylon tents which are a LOT cheaper. They also weigh less and take way less space. They tend to get a bit hotter in the sun i was told though. It might be a good option for trying the whole tent thing out though...

Boxing day

Boxing day today. Silver was enjoying one of the hats we got yesterday ;-) (not)

Late afternoon we had dinner with Simone's family and it was very nice. Long day though and we were quite tired when we got home.

Merry Christmas!

This Christmas day we met my parents for brunch in a hotel in between Alkmaar and Amsterdam.

Everybody got a free hat.

My dad and my mom.

The place was packed but the buffet was pretty good! There was live music too, which was nice.
