Above is the next layout in Duane's 21st Album. This layout is of Duane posing with his Mom Belinda at his birthday cake. Everyone at the celebration had to come dressed as something or someone starting with the first letter of Duane's name i.e. 'D'. Belinda was dressed as a Diva and of course Duane as himself. Below are some of the Grey Loeries who are currently feasting on all the aloe flowers in our garden. Sometimes there are five of them sitting on one cluster of flowers. I put out some fruit on a daily basis for the fruit eating birds and of course the Loerie's can't help themselves. They squeeze themselves around, onto and into the bird feeder just to get a bite of the fruit ... as the pics below illustrates.
Below are some pics I took at Alisha's recent 5th birthday party. It was mostly family that celebrated her birthday on this day, as she had two previous parties earlier in the week celebrating with most of her school friends. The highlight was decorating their own cupcakes with brightly coloured icing, sprinkles and various other treats. As can be seen, it looked more like a face painting party. But, I guess the most imporant thing is that they thoroughly enjoyed themselves.
