Aryan wants his picture here

Yesterday we had a lot of things to do. First we helped Martins grandparents move into their new home. We found out old people have a lot of things. I think I unpacked about 6 (!!) boxes full with only cups and glasses. But, we had a lot of fun, and many family members were helping. The men were transporting boxes from the old house to the new house, the women were unpacking everything in the new house and cleaning up. What a great allocation of tasks ;) In between the unpacking and cleaning I had a lot of fun with Martins cousin Sarah.
Notice my great Zwarte Pietencap! For my German readers, who are probably not familiar with Sinterklaas, click here and read all about this Dutch celebration.

In the evening we celebrated Sinterklaas with friends. Celebrating Sinterklaas means presents with funny poems and a lot of candy. Actually it was just a normal average Sinterklaas evening like we have every year, but I had to write something about it in my blog, for Aryan insisted on having his picture in my blog.

Well, so here it is. Ladies and gentlemen, let me introduce to you: Ataryan, the craziest person on earth, he came over to the Netherlands with his wife Marga, all the way from South Africa, and was celebrating Sinterklaas with us:

Oh... I hope I didn't scare you with this picture, dear readers.
Let me give you another picture where Aryan looks a bit sweeter. This is Aryan after he got a present from Sinterklaas. He got a yellow rubber Ducky, and he was sooooo happy with it!

If you want to know more about Aryan, you can check his website. But I forgot the URL... *hehe* so Aryan will have to post that himself when he leaves his comment here.

@Aryan: happy now? ;)
@Aryan and Marga: We'll miss you both! Have a good trip home!
