The twins turn 10


Your cousins Lienke and Katrien turned 10 this past weekend and in celebration we were invited to spend the weekend away with them in Sun City. We joined them on Friday late afternoon after an adventurous drive. Kenzie is not a good traveller and spent a large part of the journey vomiting but thankfully once…

Sleep over


My Darling Hunter, This weekend you experienced your very first sleep over. Moolah and Ruben had spent the week at Puma and had come to visit once or twice, but Friday night was the big one. They arrived early Friday morning, and the 3 of you spent the day in the pool and garden. By…

Happy Easter


My Darling Hunter, This weekend marked the 3rd annual family Easter vacation, and I have to say I think it may have been one of the best, except for the fact that we missed Uncle Blake. We stayed in Clarens Golf and Trout estate again but this time at a different house called Turnberry Lodge.…

Happy 2nd Birthday!


Happy Birthday my gorgeous boy! I cannot put into words how our lives have changed for the better since you arrived! I feel like I have to keep myself from telling everyone over and over how wonderful you are!. I love you with my whole heart my little Lion and I am the proudest Mommy…

Easter break 2013 Day 1


My Darling Hunter, Easter this year was extra special because we got to spend time with your cousins from London. So much happened in a 4 day period that I have to split the post into 4 in order to get everything down. The whole family left on Friday morning for a weekend away at…

Pappachinos with cousins


My Darling Hunter, Your cousins were in town this weekend so as usual we jumped at the chance to connect with them again, and decided to meet at Pappachinos Restaurant, known for the amazing kiddies play area. The last time we were at this restaurant you were a little baby, maybe 4/5 months old, and…

A Cousins Christmas


My Darling Hunter, You will soon understand why posts like this are so important. Getting our family together is quite the miracle simply because we are all scattered across the country and the world. But on the 21st of December we were lucky enough to have your cousins from Bloem come past for the night.…

Your very 1st Birthday EVER!


HAPPY BIRTHDAY MY LITTLE LION CUB! I have been planning this party almost from the day you were born my little Lion cub. Mainly because I am one of those crazy Mom’s that wanted to do everything myself just like my Mom did for me, so I actually needed the whole year to prepare for this point! I…

Birthday Build up


The count down to the big day has begun, and I am in full party mode. Invites have been sent out and most have already responded that they are coming! I just love organised people it makes throwing a party so much easier when people respect the fact that you need time to cater and…

A weekend with family


My Darling Hunter, Because you were sick we decided to stay in doors this weekend and it worked out so nicely because your cousins from Bloem decided to pop in for the evening and catch up with you. You had an absolute blast because you had Oumas undivided attention until they arrived and then Millah…
