Like father, like daughter...

Have you ever thought about what makes this struggle we call life worthwhile? It is times when we get to spend time with our families and times when they make us laugh so hard that we sit on the floor and cry. Then, when we look at the photo's of those times, it brings a smile to our faces and that warm, fuzzy feeling to our tummies.
These photo's were taken about a week ago. Tertia-Lee was on top form. She was giving us the show of a lifetime, except, she refused to tell us what sound an elephant makes. She made the sounds of every other animal known to mankind, but the elephant, NO, that she refused to do. That was untill William, her father, said that he would show her how. She looked at him with this little smile and said 'OK daddy, you first'. From the look on that little face it was clear that she had gotten what she wanted, daddy had to play with her.
The next minute the two of them started making these horrible noises, making the funniest faces you could ever imagine. We were crying we were laughing so hard. I am amazed that I got a few photo's that were actually in focus.

The papers are all Basic Grey and Bazzil. The stars were cut with my Cricut and embossed with UTEE and stamped with Stazon. The elephants were hand drawn and cut out.
Talking about family times, there are few things that unite my family more than a rugby game. These photo's were taken at the Super-14 final game. You must know that my family is very devided in their loyalties when it comes to supporting local teams. My DH supports the Western Province (ag shame, I know, but somebody has to support them!), DD no2 supports Natal ( she was in love with James Small as a teenager, what can I say?) DD no1 is no sportsfan, so she supports whoever is playing. DS, DD 3 and me are very avid Blue Bulls.
On this given day however, the whole family were united in their support for the Bulls. We were playing an Aussie team in the final and because we are all anti-Aussie when it comes to sport (because those d... Aussies are so good!), they were all Bulls for the day! This had to be documented.

On the photo's are the true Bulls DD 3, DS and my eldest two grandchildren. The papers are Daisyd and Bazzil. The title was cut with my Cricut and journaling written by hand. A very simple LO, but a very special memory.
Have a great day, I am running some errands for DH and might be back with those promised Zoo photo's.
