Easter time

It's been a long time since my last post.
I've been struggling with a broken camera, a broken laptop, no internet and just being too busy.
But I still love blogging and now that I've got another camera, laptop and internet again, I'm going to try to make some time again to do this.

I hope you had a good Easter time. We got the chance to make some nice memories again.

The children started their Easter break last week and I have been off since Friday.

On Thursday I decided to make an Easter craft with Ixora and Yovannah : we made easter bunnies.
This was a lot of fun.

The idea for the bunny came from

On Friday we made chicks . The kids really enjoyed the painting. Especially the smaller ones.

On Saturday evening I cooked a few eggs and Ixora decorated them with a marker decoration set.

We celebrated the resurrection of the Lord by going to church in the morning yesterday. The girls all in their new outfits.

I decided to make something like an Irish breakfast when we came back.

In the evening, Ixora adn I made breaded salmon and broccoli, sausages and shrimp in cantonese sauce with potatoes and roasted chicken.

In between, the children finally could have some of the chocolate eggs that we got a few days earlier. The kids love chocolate so they were delighted.

Today we did an egg hunt with chocolate eggs and it was great to see how excited they were when they found an egg. The smaller ones got some help from me but really enjoyed the hunt as well.

All in all, we had a great Easter time. I really enjoyed celebrating the resurrection of the Lord this year.
I hope you did too.

For God so loved the world that He gave His one and only son so that all who believe in Him shall not perish but have eternal life John 3:16

Blessings and love,

It's Summer time / Giveaway (closed)

It’s officially Summer here in Ireland, even though most of the time  it is hard to see it when you look outside. There are days when there have been some sunny spells but the sun has been hiding behind dark clouds on most of those days as well. This week it's supposed to be a good week weather wise.  A few weeks ago the sun was shining since the morning and after dropping the two older girls at school, I decided to take Nevaeh for a walk to the park close by and to feed the ducks. On the way to the park the sun was so much in my eyes that I decided to stop at the Dunnes Stores and get sun glasses. Since Nevaeh was so interested in mine I got her some too. Mini mouse ones. She loves them. The week after, it was the turn for the older girls to get sun glasses. Hello Kitty ones for Yovannah. And pink, sparkly ones for Ixora. They really love their sun glasses and wear them on sunny days.

Since this post is post nr. 60 of my blog I decided to do a little give away.

Mummy, I need your 'pookie'

It’s World Breastfeeding Week from August 1st to August 7th 2013 and this year’s theme is Breastfeeding Support: Close to Mothers. You can read more about it on The focus is on community support, particularly in the form of peer-to-peer support.
To show support for World Breastfeeding Week, the Irish Parenting Bloggers group is holding a blog march about varied breastfeeding experiences, including experiences with breastfeeding support in Ireland. This inspired me to write a post about breastfeeding as well.

My breast feeding journey
When I was pregnant with my first child, I decided that it would be a great idea to combine breast- and bottle feeding. But in the hospital they convinced me how healthy and important it was to breastfeed exclusively and then I decided to go that road. I got a breast pump to express milk so my baby could get a bottle with breast milk when I was out and about or for the scarce times that I would leave her in the care of h…
