Is Throwback Thursday theme still relevant for 2015? Hope so .. I’m having fun going back to the old photos …
The number of photographs in this year increased!! Taking photographs became important for me to record our family in pics to send to my Mum and Dad in Zimbabwe. No cell phones, Skype, or any other means of showing off family photographs except in print .. and the mailman !!
These are amongst my favourites for 1987 …
When my Mum and Dad visited I always took photographs … for my album
March : Elaine was 7 months old
I love this one with my Dad ..
April : Marina Beach, South Coast, Kwa Zulu Natal
I remember this day .. the wind was howling and the children sheltered behind rocks ..
June : Elaine 10mths : her love of books started at an early age 🙂 !!!
Also 10 mths .. a studious child in the making !!
August : Elaine’s First Birthday …
Sept : Carl reading her a story : these two have a special bond even today 🙂
Oct : Jeanette sharing her lunch with her baby sister (dressed in the same colours!! I’m sure it wasn’t intentional)
Simple toys !!
Nov : this was intentional .. only for the photo!! I made Jeanette a jumpsuit and made one for Elaine with the left-over fabric
First steps …
Dec : our three gorgeous children
