Presents from Christopher & Ella in Boston

My friend, Elizabeth and her children, Christopher and Ella created some drawings for both Soren & Maebh.  In addition, she sent us a HUGE box of goldfish, two huge boxes of orea cookies and loads of fun, new crafty supplies for the kids.  We’ll be working on some pictures for Ella & Christopher to send their way.  The kids would love to be “pen pals”.  Perhaps a skype session could be fun too!

Soren and Maebh were so excited to open their “parcel” from Boston and were thrilled with the contents.  So much so that the past two hours have been spent snacking on goldfish, playing with their new playdoh set and having a great morning in while Nils worked.  Oh and together the four of us finished one sleeve of cookies.  (Dangerous to have NINE more sleeves of these laying around – temping to eat more!)

Here are a bunch of photos from today – and you’ll see how much fun they had.

Author: Stars Stripes and Mayonnaise

I am an American currently living in the Netherlands. I enjoy snapping photos and blogging along the way about our family’s journey as we moved from USA to the UK for a couple years then onto Ireland for three & half years and now in our next adventure in the Netherlands where the kids and are are learning Dutch. As you can probably tell by the name of the blog “Stars, Stripes & Mayonnaise” our family is half American & half Dutch and if you know one thing about the Dutch is that they LOVE their mayonnaise! I seen ’em do it man, they fuckin‘ drown ’em in it. When I started this blog way when it was to capturing memories of our family – essentially a journal of our family adventures, their love of mayonnaise, my love of photography, D.I.Y., crafting, sea glass hunting and exploring with our two amazing kids.
