Annemie’s first birthday

Annemie turned 1 on 13 October.

We celebrated it at our house, with a big feast that Thelwyn and Frans had prepared.

Our little one year old in her polka dot dress, awaiting the guests.  She seemed to know that the fuss was about her and she enjoyed every minute.  (She has been walking since 10 ½  months.)

The weather was glorious and the children played outside with a ball.  They also had a great time on the climbing frame and the trampoline.

Annemie loved her gifts – this push school bag was from the L’s.  Now she has a bag just like her Ousus and her cousins.

She is already a little bookworm.

We had an unexpected visitor: a huge tortoise.  He was the largest tortoise we had even seen on the farm and of course all these animal lover children were ecstatic!  He did not stay long though – he soon disappeared  into the bush.

Dankie Mamma vir ‘n baie lekker partytjie! 

Thank you God for my brown eyed girls and all our family.  And thank you for such special occasions!  Thank you for giving us Annemie:  she is such a little ray of sunshine!

Kan nie glo Annemie is al een jaar oud nie. Sy is te oulik. Die fotos is pragtig.
Mooi bly
