Bafana Bafana

So you are probably wondering what the title means... That is the name of our national soccer team. The played a game here in PE against Japan a couple of weeks ago and we had to go check it out and the new stadium that was built for the 2010 world cup. We got to the game in the traditional taxis (that we wouldn't normally ride in). Our friends Clayton and Paula arranged two taxis for us and it was great door to door service. The boys had a blast. Evan fell asleep during the game, which I can't believe because it is very loud in the stadium with all the horns. Great fun! BAFANA BAFANA!!!

All the boys in the taxi

On our way...

Evan & Aiden Kindermusik Concert

The boys take Kindermusik at school once a week. Over the last two weeks they have each had a year end concert. It was great to see them singing, playing the instruments and acting out the motions to songs...well at least it was great to see the other kids.. Evan being his shy self just stood there most of the time. Aiden as always was enjoying himself with his friends.

Evan's Fun.....

Aiden's fun....

Weekend in Kleinmonde

We spent the last weekend with some wonderful friends, the Whitaker Family, at their holiday house in Kleinmonde. It was a great relaxing weekend and the boys had a blast. They live close to the river and the beach. The boys built sandcastles, went fishing, played beach cricket and sand boarded down the dunes.


Out on the boat, on the Kowie River....

More fun in the sun & sand... sandcastles, Evan being buried, Beach Cricket

Aiden's Year End Concert

Last week Aiden had his year end concert. The school has a graduation ceremony for the kids going into grade 1 and have a concert with all the kids. It was very cute. The story of Joseph and Mary having baby jesus.. but with some twists and alot of humor. Aiden was Frankincense or a gift. He sang a couple of songs and did a wonderful job!


Happy Halloween!!

It was a busy day! I spent the day scrapbooking, Aiden had a birthday party to go to, then we had a Halloween tea to attend with friends and then a big halloween party in the evening... whewwwww. But it was great! The last party of the evening was hosted by Megan and Kim. They had lots of games set up for the kids to play, lots of yummy food to eat and towards the end of the evening we had them trick or treating around the yard (since most people here don't celebrate Halloween). It was great fun and the kids were worn out!

Aiden was Tony Stewart, Evan was a Cowboy, Scott was Austin Powers, andd I was a gypsy. In the bottom left corner are the hosts.. Megan & Kim. You can see the games.. bobbing for apples, mummy wrap, trying to eat donuts off the string - what fun!! My pumpkin cake was gorgeous.. except I left it sitting too close to the window and the icing melted in the sun. But was yummy anyway. And as you can see in the upper right corner are the casualties of the fun!
