Welcome to the new, and improved version of Heaven in Belgium. I am Jientje. "Jientje", like the boys name Gene, followed by "chu"? "Gene-chu", that's how you pronounce my name. Yes!!!!That's it!! So now you know huh? I am an addicted blogger. I was born and raised and am still living in Belgium. Yeah, the "this-is- Tuesday-so-this-must-be-Brussels" kind of Belgium .. There, you see? Maybe you couldn't find it on the map, but at least I'm trying to change that a little by sharing lots of pictures. I really love to cook and create new things, like this blog for instance. I am a mother,a grandmothe and a wife too! They say I'm a traveler, and a photographer. Well that's just what they say, I love to make pictures, but I am far from professional ... If my English is not perfect, that would be because it's my second language. I do hope you'll forgive me any possible misspellings or strange vocabulary ... Now, as a result of all of the above, I get way too little sleep and my days are always much too short!

Our Family Christmas Party

It’s not always easy to set a date to organize a Christmas party for the whole family. That’s why we’re celebrating one day early today.

The gifts have been wrapped, the apple pie smells delicious and the chocolate mousse is heaven on earth. My daughter asked me to make the desserts and I spent most of yesterday mixing and baking (and licking my fingers!).
My part is done, she’ll be taking over as she is going to host the party. We celebrated at her house last year too, and below is a collage of some of the most precious moments I captured then.

Kerstkaart 2010

I made prints from this collage, one for each of the guests. I think I’m going to make this a new Christmas tradition. It gives me an extra excuse to point my camera in their faces!
Have a wonderful Christmas or enjoy the Winter festivities.
Have a great day!

Wat een feestelijke collage en zo'n goed idee om dat uit te printen als een cadeau. Leuke herinnering.
Fijne Feestdagen.

Jientje what a wonderful idea. Now if I knew how to make the collage (I am a little computer challenged I guess) I would do that too! I think it is a brilliant way to share with everyone, even putting the collage into a frame and giving it to them! Hope you have a wonderful happy Christmas Day and SAFE New Year's EVE! hugs and smiles across many miles! lindalu
