Such a perfect day

It was such a perfect day,
let me some things up, if I may...
Woke up before the alarm
felt pretty comfortable and warm.
Got to talk to an angelic friend from over the ocean
LOVE was at least one present emotion!
Broke the fast with warm food
could I have been in a better mood?
Oh yes, I could, because there she is...
It's ''CinderELLA'' to you, miss!
Just when I think I have seen her cutest way
she comes up and makes this a perfect day...
With the softest voice she ''read'' her New Years Letter 
with gestures and signs that made it even better.
Liefste meter,
Met mijn armpjes open,
kom ik aangelopen.
Een kusje hier, een kusje daar.
Een gelukkige Nieuwjaar!
Uw kleine kapoen,
When I showed her what, for her, I made
she played and played and played...

Home made pastries, hot chocolate, ice-cream, a housemate that baked pancakes and tea...
A perfect ''perfect day'' feast, if you ask me!
All that sugar made us need fresh air
''Hey, I know of a slide and grass over there!''
Ella loves chickens and slides
and never ever her excitement she hides...

When they left I had to run off the empty space
and made my Sunday evening activity into a race
Half an hour and about 5K
hot salty soup... and yes there it is... Just a perfect day!

Little owl

A little owl lives in my sister's belly,
she grows like the speed of a car in a rally.
This fact alone,
puts my sister on a throne!
But then I got this adorable card
and clear became MY part...
Er staat geschreven:
''Ik weet nog niet zo veel
want ik ben nog mar klein.
Maar van 1 vraag ben ik zeker:
Zou jij mijn meter willen zijn?''
Not only is this little owl my niece,
she will be my third godchild, if I please.
Yes, yes I do, and with so much love!
Of being a godmother, I can't get enough!
I already dream
of the three of us eating cookies and ice cream,
of taking all three to the zoo
and of spending time alone, just me and you!
Little owl, good luck growing...
and YOU, I'm looking forward knowing!
Having Stan fall asleep
while holding him
was like scoring the winning goal
in a finale of a Championship.
I have no idea what that feels like,
but it must feel superb! 
 ''One last Bumba show''.
She kept crying and I had to run upstairs
to cry a little too.
I'm not the educative kind
of godmother... :)
