Charlie's Bird

living the dream with Charlie and Thandi and chirping all the way back to the nest.

Princess Aurora Party

…so, as I mentioned, the birthday party was great fun! Thandi had fun and all her friends seemed to enjoy themselves. There weren’t tears, melt downs or tantrums! Instead, smiles, laughter and shrieks of delight; Paint smeared fingers, chocolate polluted faces and grimy toes. It was great!
