An Update on Smokey

When I got Smokey for my 11th birthday last year, I posted a picture of him on my blog but I wanted to post an update on him today so that you can see how beautiful he has become!  He is a lovely kitty and has grown quite big.


I love him lots!!!!

Father’s Day!

Last week we enjoyed getting ready to surprise my dad for Father’s Day on Sunday the 19th of June.

Cookies, coffee and a card!

The little ones helped my mom make chocolate chip cookies for my dad (the cookies were meant to be a surprise but my dad found out!), Kelly made a card and my mom bought a selection of gourmet coffees.  I didn’t know what to do for my dad, so my mom suggested that I make one of my special pictures.  I knew my dad liked the pictures that I had previously made using felt, material, crayons, a fine liner and coloured cardboard, so I made him one on Saturday afternoon.

The picture I made.

Me and my dad.

We made my dad breakfast in bed! It was so much fun preparing the breakfast! We made an omelette with wild mushrooms, cheese and red peppers and on the plate put a garnish with rocket, tomato and parsley. Kelly squeezed lots of oranges by hand for juice, my mom fried some bacon and voila! My dad enjoyed it so much! I can’t wait till next Father’s Day! I love being able to bless other people.

My First Blog Award!

This is my first blog award!  Sarah from Walking in the Narrow Way (now this is My Father’s World) gave me this award some time ago, but only now I have gotten to post it!

For this award I must list 8 things about myself:

I absolutely love sewing short and easy projects.
My favourite animal is a dolphin (although I have never seen a live one).
I love reading classics, mysteries and adventure books.
I really enjoy baking with my little sister Rebekah.
I love inventing games for my little sisters.
I love listening to Britt Nicole and Casting Crowns music.
I enjoy riding horses.
And I love Jesus Christ, and reading his word (the Bible)!

Thank you very much for the award Sarah!!
Love Nancy

Doll Pyjamas

On Friday my mom wanted to make Rebekah a pair of pyjamas. I was only going to watch, but my mom asked if I would like to make matching pyjamas for her doll? It was so much fun and also much easier than I expected!

Rebekah loves her doll’s new pyjamas!

  I will post a picture of Rebekah in her finished pyjamas when my mom is done!!
