  17. That is so great!! We were having such a hard time w/ Seth's birthday party list but God has undertaken and its over a long weekend in our country so many of the people will be away and only the friends he plays with are able to make it!!

    People can't understand why we don't do big parties. This year we're having fun things the kids like eating other than sweets...i.e. pizza, grated cheese, cold meats, popcorn for foods. And we're doing a braai (BBQ) for the adults. The kids will just have a sandpit and a pool to play in! No jumping castles, entertainment etc. Just good old playing together in the sun!! with the birthday cake...the high light of Seth's day!! All he wants for his birthday is a B-I-G (toy) shark.
