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.)
Martelize and Franco and the other friends admiring the polka dot cake.
Janita looking forward to the jellies that Martelize had made.
Frans lit the number 1 candle…
while Annemie looked on. The candle certainly got her attention!
The happy family: Martelize (4), Frans, Annemie (1) and Thelwyn
Franco and Janita headed for the rocks to eat their party packs.
The “grown-ups’” table – with only half of the food out yet.

“Look my brand new first tooth!”
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.
A soft doggy elicits a beautiful smile and a hug.
She is already a little bookworm.
But Zaran is the best toy of all!
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!
