Catch up!

Dont worry its just mud....

Its raining pure happiness!

Deqlan couldnt wait for the cake to be cut!

I know, its been ages, i am so sorry! Things have been so busy around here, i have had one of the busiest weeks at work i can ever remember having , which is great, especially being a travel agent - things are just to expensive for people to take holidays and travel, but my business travellers are keeping me very very busy!

so lets go back to last week - Grandpa and Nanna had a great time in Cape Town, they got to see Aunty Shea who was also down with flu - but as always she sent something very special for the boys- Deqlan got the cutest puzzle book on kitties and doggies - to beautiful , thank you so much Aunty Shea for being so thoughtful, Deqlan loves his book and i know going to get many many enjoyable hours with it! Some photos from the anniversary celebrations in Cape Town and a pic of Camps Bay my favorite place!

We had a lovely celebration of Nanna's birthday, enojing breakfast at Meggies and then we went to great Nan in the afternoon. Deqlan was beyond thrilled to see that a huge sprinkler was wetting the thristy lawn and he didnt even hesistate for 1 moment before running straight into the water. He ran round and around, stood still for a while and then around and around again. He was sopping wet, but thoroughly enjoyed cooling down as it was quite a warm day. Deqlan absolutely loves water and the feeling of the water 'raining' on his face and head. We all had a good chuckle and Great Nanna enjoyed her cake and visit from her great grand sons who she is so very proud of.

We celebrated further with a braai/bbq at Nanna's house on Tuesday night as Wednesday was a public holiday here. Deqlan and Keaton had an absolute ball running around (well Deqlan ran,Keaton watched) and playing in the sand pit .He also enjoyed getting wet , again, and playing in the mud!

Deqlan has discovered a new game - he likes lining things up - especially people - we only discovered this on Monday afternoon when Dada came to surprise Nanna to wish her Happy Birthday. Deqlan took each of us by the arm, and pulled us into a straight line - we only realised this after looking at him run to the end of the room, then looking at us and being very please with himself.Dada moved out of the line and Deqlan put him right back into place. I moved backwards and i to was pulled back into line, and so it carried on with us all taking turns and all laughing and enjoying the new game Deqlan had created.

Wednesday we did a bit of shopping and relaxed at home - we went past Irene Country Lodge to wish Nats a Happy Birthday, but Deqlan hadnt slept so was very unhappy - especially when we wouldnt let him play the line up game with some strangers at the lodge! So we went home and enjoyed some delicous pizza and an afternoon nap

Thursday and Friday are a blur - a real blur- i was so busy, it didnt feel like i gave my time to anyone person - it was all mixed up and i really felt disorientated - i have been praying for God to help me juggle all the balls i need to juggle and to put more time and concentration into one thing at a time - thats the only way i am going to try and get around everything i need to do!
Saturday was spent in the glorious sun in the garden, where Dada was using the hose pipe to fill the pull and Deqlan just had to have a go to- needless to say he had a fantastic time and again sopping from head to toe! This only lasted a few minutes before our little monkey started getting cold, and we got him inside with a bit of a struggle, but we got to keep him healthy and well!

Our soldier's arm seems much better - he is using it more and more and the bruising is definitely better. He still protects it when he falls and tries not to fall on it and is more cautious on his slide which is a good thing!

Deqlans eating habits are not so great - we are really battling at times - even with his beloved bread which he would not eat on Friday. But yesterday had a great breakfast, lunch and dinner - but attempts to get vege and fruit in are not successful at the moment- not even raisins or mangos which he used to love - but i will continue trying different things and i know eventually something will taste great to him! We are going to make more of an effort to get Deqlan off all the bread and cheese and wheat he eats - and try get healthier things to fill his tummy.

We are going to try again and take Deqlan for his vaccinations tommorow - the plan to give hibarex, infanrix ,mmr and maybe prevenar - but we will see what final outcome is tommorow! I still have loads of question marks on the mmr vaccine - especially after reading Jenny McCarthy's Louder than words.

Well, let me be off and continue playing catch up on investigating our vaccination options! Havre a great week, please let me know how you all are?
Please continue the prayers for Deqlan, please never stop, please also continue to keep all our warriors from around the world in your prayers.
Please go and have a look at this very powerful site on choldhood cancer awareness , as we continue to raise awareness not only this month, but every single month, week and day of every year. pictures do speak a thousand words...
God bless all our love

I do not leave many comments, but after reading a lot of remarks here
"Catch up!". I actually do have a couple of questions for you if you don't mind. Is it simply me or do some of these remarks come across as if they are left by brain dead visitors? :-P And, if you are posting at additional sites, I'd like to keep up with anything new you have to post.
Could you post a list of every one of your social sites like your Facebook page,
twitter feed, or linkedin profile?

Take a look at my web page:
