Your 3rd league game ever. At 54 months old you scored not 1 goal but 2. Sadly mommy and I were working at the baby expo, but we heard how proud you were. Well we are proud of you too our sweet, ambitious always on the go little guy. I am super glad the hours of “play soccer with me nannie” have paid off. I have a funny feeling there will be many, many hours of garden soccer for you and me in our future.

My mother died when she was 38 and i was 10. I often wonder who I would be if she had been around for a little longer. I think she was a beautiful woman. The wish to have known her never goes away. poem: I don’t know how she does it The vision is still there it hasn’t gone 42 years have, but not the face nor the smell nor the smile nor the want and need to be able to touch the body, or the soul. Miraculously in an instant a child has her mother’s indelible imprint etched on her being, like a tattoo, permanent always present never fading. The oft present voice that whispers in my ear in times of need or despair, in times of elation or of fear is she. I don’t know how she does it but I listen.

They buy into everything we say! Journaling : The Easter bunny seems to have arrived when Nannie distracted us with looking for something in the toy cupboard. He spread the eggs and surprises all over the garden. Lucky Savvy was put away in the room too, else she would have eaten them all. So off we all dashed collecting what we can in these awesome baskets. Nannie seems to have just had these lying around too. Lucky cos they were perfect for the chocolate haul. After we had found everything we went to Nannies bed and tipped them all out on the bed and we shared between all of the cousins.

CHEW.EAT. SLEEP. POOH. PLAY.WEE. repeat.... repeat.... repeat. It was such fun with you. You loved the beach with all the amazingly interesting bits of seaweed and kelp and dead crab to pick up. Then there were the seagulls to watch with interest flying above us. We could almost see your mind trying to work out how they get up there. You didn’t stray far away until you heard voices. Anyones voices and then you were off. Knowing that everyone would be oohing and ahhhhing over you. You love a cuddle! Watching you take your first tentative steps into the water was very funny. Everytime the wave came you ran away. The truth be told so do I. Its freezing. But by the time we left, you were venturing a little further. Dunno if you were simply showing off to Max. Your little holiday romance. You know the romance we all dream of. Maybe thats who you are dreaming about.

You are a a cheeky little soul but then you sit there with those cute puppy dog eyes. How can anyone resist those eyes? But you see, Savvy, I was groomed by your predecessor Jordan. She was just like you. You could have been sisters. Your love for food is never ending. You sit in the kitchen waiting. Just in case we havent remembered that we gave you breakfast or lunch or dinner. Well news just in. We do remember. We are not fooled by those sweet sad eyes. We are watching you.

This weeks lift is on the blog and its a super graphic layout. Journaling: So here we are. The full circle of life. Your dad and your uncle and your grand uncles all played &amp; loved the game. The hours I have spent on the side of a soccer field I can’t even count! I love that you will love the game. This Old Parks tournament I probably have attended 10 or 15 times. And here you are - 4 years old ... playing for the U6 team. Not surprisingly you have almost no clue what is going on. But you are the little terrier that is at everyones heels and I have no doubt whatsoever that you will be a forward running and not stopping. You are amazingly competitive for someone your age. But I really did LOL when you clapped when the other team scored. You also joined the oppostion in their line to shake Randburg’s hands. You haven’t got the idea that there are 2 teams and you are only on 1 of them. Oh my Jamie, it makes me so happy to be back on the side of the field. The same field I stood on, carrying your mommy on my hip for many many games. The full circle.

The story of my life. Freckles. I hated them. With a passion. Especially the freckles on my face. Wow a hatred like no other. As a 13 year old I went from pharmacy to pharmacy to find someone that would sell me skin lightning cream. I didn’t realise that it would make my skin go lighter too, so the freckles would still stand out. But luckily the chemists staff were wiser than me and said NO. The freckles on my face have all but disappeared and whilst I know moms &amp; grannies think they are cute, I definitely didn’t. My arms and chest and legs are still covered and especially now straight after our summer holiday where I spent a lot of time in the sun, {protected with factor 50 and all that} they really do stand out a lot. I always say IF they just joined up I would have a great tan! So through the years I have forgiven my body and inheritance for its unfairness. I always wanted to have smooth olive skin like other girls. You know the type .....The blonde hair and blue eyes with dark skin kind of girl. Dammit how lucky were they? Well I had no choice but to pass it on to Leigh-Anne and Dustin and whilst I do feel a little sorry for them, it is the source of one of my most vivid conversations with Leigh-Anne as a little girl. “Where did you get those freckles” - her sweet rehearsed answer “Pip n Pay”. They were totally cute with a few freckles scattered across their noses. It wasn’t ugly at all. Hold on when did I become a mom or a granny? Or both. credits : [u][b][url=]Dating 2015 Brushes and Stamps[/url][/b][/u] [u][b][url=]Striping Graphic Brushes and Stamps No. 01[/url][/b][/u] [u][b][url=]Bead Scatterings No. 03[/url][/b][/u] [u][b][url=]Splatters Brushes and Stamps No. 04[/url][/b][/u]<br /><br />6 comments Fri, 16 Jan 2015 11:55:10 +0000 CHRISTMAS LEGO <a href=";title=christmas-lego&amp;cat=502"><img class="imgborder" title="christmas_lego.jpg" border="0" src="" alt="christmas_lego.jpg" /></a><br /><br />by: sam ellis<br /><br />Description}: I really spend my time trying to get the things people in my life want for birthdays and Christmas.

Alas both asleep! Journaling: Up early. Beach. Golf Cart. Boat. Sandcastles. Running. Splashing. Moaning. Finding fish. Throwing stones. Watching jetskis. Walking. Riding bikes. All before the sun is barely up. This makes me tired just thinking about it. You guys do everything at breakneck speed. With a few snacks thrown in between. So no wonder when mommy said “shhhh quiet time” I walked through and found you both fast asleep. Hugging your shared dubbie. Oh man I love you to bits. Especially when you are both quiet. It’s a rare occassion. credits : [u][b][url=]Triangular Sentiments Brushes and Stamps No. 01[/url][/b][/u] [u][b][url=]Typed and Scripted Brushes and Stamps No. 01[/url][/b][/u] [u][b][url=]Flourished Clusters Brushes and Stamps No. 04[/url][/b][/u] [u][b][url=]Scripted Story Love Brushes and Stamps[/url][/b][/u] [u][b][url=]Chimayo Element Pack[/url][/b][/u] [u][b][url=]Scribbled Overlays No. 02[/url][/b][/u]<br /><br />9 comments Fri, 16 Jan 2015 08:40:53 +0000 Cape Town happiness <a href=";title=cape-town-happiness&amp;cat=502"><img class="imgborder" title="CURRENTLY_HAPPENING_.jpg" border="0" src="" alt="CURRENTLY_HAPPENING_.jpg" /></a><br /><br />by: sam ellis<br /><br />Description}: Love these off centre everything photos Journaling : You know Jamie you LOVE Cape Town.

A first attempt after many years. It all started out as an idea for Christmas Eve. I wanted to put together a box for each child. Jarmies and some reindeer food and and and. But nope there were NO Christmas jarmies anywhere. So I thought maybe I can make them. I haven’t sewn anything in years. Like 30 years. But let me try. I decided to get a new sewing machine, you know as you do :) (early Christmas present I told Ian) and I also booked myself onto a childrens sewing course for next year, which I had been looking at for the whole year. I think, despite having not sewn for so long, they came out well. Thanks retail outlets for not having Jarmies in the first place, I need a new hobby....NOT.

Ya, right..... Seeing as it was you guys and me I can make this story go whereever I want. So here goes. Kenzie is flabbergasted and simply says not again. Why doesnt she mind where she sits? Cos she’s a girl. Dan simply listens and smiles to himself as Jamie gets a little tongue twisted about why he needs to sit next to Brody. Brody just doesnt want to be left out on the end and anyway nannie says the end of a wide angle shot always makes you look fat. So.
