2008 - 2015 First Seven Years

Hello my darling Em,

When I started this blog in May 2008 I wasn't sure whether I would keep it going but it has been over 7 years and 130 posts.  I have decided to turn the blog into a book so that you have a printed version of the blog.  

If I keep it going for another 7 years, I'll have another book printed for you in 2022 when you are 14 years old and I am 75 years old!  Won't that be great!

This will be the last post in this book. so I have chosen a few random photos, some that we did just for fun.


Hello darling Em,

We celebrated your 7th Birthday on the 16th October.  You were so excited when Gumpy and I phoned you at home in the morning before school that I thought you were hyperventilating!

You had a 'Frozen' theme (your new favourite movie). 
"When their kingdom becomes trapped in perpetual winter, fearless Anna joins forces with mountaineer Kristoff  and his reindeer sidekick to find Anna's sister, Snow Queen Elsa and break her icy spell." 

I must say that you looked exactly like the singing princess doll that we gave you for your birthday.
Your main party was at 'Mr Funtubbles' at Gateway.  Gumpy and I stayed for about an hour and then went home to get ready for the adults party at our house.

Tammy made you a lovely 'Frozen' birthday cake and all the other goodies were in the same theme.

When your 'Funtubbles' party ended, you all came to our house where you were finally able to open your presents, have more snacks and blow out the candles on one of the layers of your birthday cake.

Last weekend you came for a sleepover on Friday night.  We went to Greg and Sharon's for sun-downers.  You'd had a 'science party' in the afternoon and when we got home at about 8:30pm you were tired.  You had a bubble bath, watched some television and then we went to bed.
In the morning we took you to the Farmer's Market at Shongweni where we had breakfast.  You loved all the stalls, patting the dogs and puppies, bought a metal tractor, a bikini and a new outfit for Lucy.  I bought seedlings and plants for my vegetable garden.  You had fun with the giant bubbles.

On Saturday the 31st you went to a Halloween street  party with your aunty Candice.
