Cupcakes and a wedding anniversary

My husband brought cupcakes from a little shop in Luxembourg-city, not far from where he works.

He had a good reason to bring them, because he
 forgot our 26th wedding anniversary
(again, :( he forgot about half of them).

Apple sauce and berry jam

Today has been a busy day in our home. 
We made apple sauce, red currant and elderberry jam.
We cleaned and prepared the red currant berries
in summer and put them in the freezer. 
We had never done it this way, 
but it worked out really well.


It was hard work (it takes a lot of apples to
fill a glass with apple sauce).

Her 12th birthday party

We celebrated her 12th birthday with a 
"big girl tea hot chocolate party"
for her friends, on Friday after school.

My husband brought home a beamer and a
 large screen from work. 

We watched the new Cinderella movie which had
just been released in Germany last week, so I was
 pretty sure nobody had seen it already. 
It was a good choice, they all loved it.

It was a fun party!
Simple, but fun.

Flannel sheets

They both asked for their warm flannel sheets.

I mean, who says snowflakes, snowowls, penguins and
 reindeers  are for Christmas only!

 the brocante in Arlon.

He loves the brocante ;).

My favorite spot in the morning

My husband is the first to go downstairs and now
that the mornings are getting colder, he always
 starts the fire in the wood stove. 
By the time the kids are dressed, it's nice and
 warm in the living room. 

This is also my favorite spot to drink a first cup of tea
 after the kids are out the door in the morning.

First-day-of-school outfits

The first-day-of-school outfit is always a big deal over here.
The kids normally need new clothes this time of the year.
The mornings are getting colder and they both have
grown so much over the summer months.

This is what they wore this morning:

I  buy most of my son's clothes at H&M 
(there is one in the shopping mall where I do my grocery shopping). They are not expensive, they always
 fit and he likes them.

I actually bought this top for myself (oh well...).
Jeans from Lola & Liza. 
I got a great deal on her leather sneakers (GEOX). 
They cost 125€ originally, but they were on sale for 54€. 

We're ready for the new school year!
