... that I shared on my blog. Got back from Holland yesterday evening where DH and I had a super time! Well, happy we even landed in the Netherlands last friday after a very BUMPY flight. We were warned that there were heavy head winds but I didn't expect to hold on to my seat for twenty minutes while the plane shook like crazy!
We had rain and cold weather the whole time we were there!
Our son was baptized on sunday and it was a great day, also seeing a lot of our dear friends who we haven't seen for such a long time.
It was René, his dad who is here on the left, before and after Joel is immersed in water. God has done a wonderful work in our family.

I have received three lovely photos of places in our village which were taken by friends of ours when they visited us in the summer. This is in the garden of a small bed and breakfast. Why I love it is because it is so typical French! I will be sharing the other two later on.
I tried a card with versamark and chalks today. It's the HA design block. I've been feeling totally out of inspiration for a while now, I think it's because I'm just too busy with other exiting things!
I received a lovely e-mail which I am quoting here about the bird picture I posted on my last blog entry. Andi thought it was a fancy woodpecker (alot of people thought the same) but this is what it is:
Hi, I just LOVE your blog...I read it every day! I loved the bird picture...I love to go "birding" but have never seen anything like this in the USA!! It is a Hoopoe (Upupa Epops) an old world woodland bird! I had to look it up. Thanks for sharing, and keep making your lovely cards!!! Kathie from California
