Can’t believe my Friday was so intense! I manage to deal with a lot of house chores and also spend time with girls while Janis was helping to build a playground for Helmī kindergarten group. This isn’t the first time he is helping and I’m proud of having such a nice hearted man in my … More Fully packed Friday
Yesterday was a lovely day with my biggest girl Nelle, who turned 8! EIGHT! Can’t believe! The day started as planned – with a crown for Nelle and balloons in closet! After that, I and Linna did a photoshoot for the family :). That means Linna took picture of us, and then I took of … More Nelles Birthday
We all know what is Covid19 and also we all know what to do #stayhome! We had an interesting talk with all three girls this January (2020) about what they want for birthdays. We never gave a big present if we made a party. So we talked and we voted, that this year none of … More Nelle is turning 8!

If you ask me I better clean 4 smaller rooms … More Getting ready for the opening party!
Our plan for today was town festival, but we had to cancel it. Nelle is ill and we won’t go without her! We like to be together when going out. Instead of the town festival, I went to woods to collect birch leaves. Why in woods, not in bushes?! It’s so summery, dry and dusty! … More Herbal Tea
So, I was off the blogging cause I “made” Nelles’ birthday party! This was my 12th kids birthday party I have thrown. Well, I would say I never learn! Still doing it by myself, still cooking, baking cakes, making decorations, cleaning, planting flowers, etc… even when I don’t have much time left. This is called … More Nelle is 6 now!
Here in Latvia, we have such thing as Name day. Imagine all the “Latvian” names (it’s not only Latvian, I would say common names in Latvia) are written in the calendar. What about those whose name isn’t written on the calendar. There is also one day (and that is May 22) when those who don’t … More My girls’ Namedays
My little Nelle will be 6 next Monday, but we will have an early celebration on this Saturday!

So, I wasn’t planning to … More Paw Patrol and Nelles birthday
