Weekend photo post.

We are getting to the end of this very eventful year and I thought that it would be a good idea to give you a quick update on how things are going and showing you how big the grand bambinos are getting.
Our little Leane is becoming big now...and so protective of her little brother...a real BIG sister.  I was amazed again this weekend at how the simplest of things give these little ones so much pleasure.  She loves bubbles more than toys.
It is so hard to get her to not hide behind her hands when I take the camera out.  She does not like the "oumarazzi";-D

Leane and Dewan on the trampoline.  Here she shows us his "eina".  This little one started climbing before he could walk.  On Friday night he fell against the cast iron fire place and now has a small cut above his eye.

My son Kobus with his son Dewan.  It is such a priviledge having him back in our home and seeing him with his children on his "on" weekends.

When they are here our mornings go something like this.  Shortly after six in the morning our bedroom door opens with a crash.  Leane comes and pokes either me or DH and when we open our eyes she orders coffee.  When the coffee is made we all return to bed for coffee and cuddles.

 They have managed to crawl into our hearts very quickly.
  • In my last post I told you that my hair turned out very blond after a recent visit to a new hairdresser.  Well...I lasted all of 4 days.  This morning I returned to my normal brunette status.  I realised that I don't do change very well.
  • In February many of you followed our roller coaster ride when our son, Wynand was diagnosed with a condition that is inoperable and badly affected his vision.  You can read one of the posts here.
  • When Wynand started driving again, we were very concerned about how much he actually sees. The good news is that he had to renew his drivers license and he passed the eye test with flying colours.  We can just praise the Lord for this as the eye specialist and neurologist did not have much hope of his eyesight being restored.  We truly serve a miracle working God.


  1. Did she not have blonde hair in the birthday pics (Felicia) that you posted?

  19. Lovely to read your family your granddaughter has grown...and looks so much like her Dad as well...beautiful child.

    Saddens me to see a mom of a young child on her own and not with the child's father....I can see that happening in the near future with my daughter....but right now she has to live it out as poor baby is only 2 weeks old.
    I wrote a story in my blog today....

    Love the family updates as I am not into scrapbooking...well love scrapbooking but suck at it....I do it in my own pathetic way...LOL
