I am back:-)

After a two month break, I am back.  My life is still hectic, but it is slowly getting back to normal. A lot has happened these past two months and I decided to do a "catch-up" post in photos.
At the beginning of June our sixth grandchild, Juan was born.

June started cold and wet and in this pouring rain Kobus Jr's best friend Estienne got married to Felicia.
The wedding was beautiful and the newly married couple very much in love.

A week later we travelled to Cape Town for the wedding of my nephew Michael to his bride Simone.
Many of these photos were taken by Stefanie.
With me is my sister Ansie....and there wasn't one photo of me without Stefan in the arms.
Bianca with her girl cousins Stephanie and Robyn.
My mother with my sisters Anita and Herlien.
My love and I.
The beautiful and scrumptious wedding cake was baked by my sister Ansie.  Death by chocolate cake.
Little Lukas turned 4 in June and here he is with his "Toy Story" cake and his Buzz Lightyear suit.
...a half eaten Woody....
...the cake was a work of art....
...and he was a very happy little man.
Oupa was caught by the cowboys and cowgirls and taken captive.
Lukie received a Leap pad for his birthday.

Time is flying and I stand in awe when I see how quickly the two new babies in our lives are growing.
Stefan will soon be 4 months.  He has been sleeping through from before he was a month old.  He does, however, believe that he is too big to sleep in the day and fights sleep with all his might.  He is a happy, smiley baby.  His hands are constantly in his mouth and teething is possibly the next stage in his life.
Leane remains the only little princess in our lives...and that is good, because when Ouma sees a cute skirt like this one...she is sure to get it.
Dewan had a collision with the floor and he has grown from our baby to an older brother.
Her birthday will only be in August...but after seeing Lukas' Leap pad she insisted that she needed one too.
Gorgeous little Juan is already 6 weeks.
....see...I told you totally gorgeous!
Little Stefan...another gorgeous little treasure.

I am hoping to catch up with the goings on in blogland in the coming day or two.  Can't wait to see what I have been missing.



  1. Busy, busy, indeed. You are so blessed with such a beautiful family.
