Testimony:               I chose inspiration words ‘surprise’, ‘fun’ and ‘show’, written as a short letter to my DGS1 on the back of my layout.

16/3/2014 : Francois, you are just adorable and so much FUN to have around!! We went to the Wimpy in Harties and you got these wiggly eyes as part of the toy you received with your kiddie’s meal. Ouma-Ouma got an unexpected surprise treat today! Indeed a record breaking family fun show!! You started off with 2 eyes and later confiscated your sister’s wiggly eyes too!!! I am just wondering. . . . I told you little ones many moons ago that I have eyes on the back of my head too! Just maybe you will have eyes on the back of your head too when you are grown up ;-) Thank you for making me laugh today!! Hugs and kisses, Ouma-Ouma. 

Now for a few close-ups :
