Two lovely days

So much fun having my sister here! The last two days we have done touristy things and loved it! We went to Vergelegen (Lots of South African history and beautiful gardens!) and Seidelberg wine estate. The weather has been kind and the girls even got a bit too much sun today but it was lovely. We ended up having Cheese again tonight and loved it of course! Tomorrow we will be visiting family in Malmesbury and Monday. . . probably nothing ;o)

9 Days early

So, it seems Daddy was the most impatient one of the family and these little girls came home with us today!

Suzelle and Luzaan did not know wether we were joking or wether they could really get excited when we told them to pick up their puppies and lets go ;o) We had to tell them that we were not teasing but serious before they got excited.

Now for the hard work!

Luzaan's Weekend

Luzaan turned 8 on Sunday and she had her ballet concert this weekend! It was a special blessing!

On Saturday night, with her last concert for the weekend, she was just dropped at the venue and later David went to fetch her. She looked like such a grown up girl when she arrived back here with her bag over her shoulder . . . I was amazed how grown up an 8 year old can look and be and that my youngest had reached this stage already!

On the photos: Luzaan blowing out candles; Her cake; the most precious little silver star in the ballet concert - to me anyway; Daddy's little girl on her birthday; All dressed up to go to church on her birthday!

Dress rehearsal

How is it possible to love one little person so much? I love these photos of her - it shows her personality (sunny, little shy sometimes, likes to dress up, social most of the time, loving)

The friends in these photos are the same age as her - they just have smaller parents ;o)

Ballet costume, wonderful friends, garden, puppies

Hooray! The ballet costume is finished at last! Now all that's left is the dress rehearsal and then the concert next weekend. Then there's a photo of me and my wonderful friend, Efme. Without her help I would not have been able to make Luzaan's costume myself! Thanks Efme!

The beautiful bright flowers photo is of our front garden at the moment taken from where I stand to wash the dishes! I feel so blessed! Thank you, David, for all your hard work in the garden! I appreciate it!

Lastly we visited the puppies again. The time is drawing so near and we enjoy them even more every time we visit! Suzelle loved the one puppy in particular because it always came to her and played with her. She was able to call it hers because it is the only one in the litter with about 7 little white hairs under it's chin - so we already know which one is going to be Isla. We will still see about the second one, Maggie, since none of the others really stood out to us. We should be able to choose her by next week Monday. The excitement is unbearable, of course ;o)
