'n Bietjie laat, maar hier gaan die 2017 Kersboom op.

It is our tradition that the Xmas trees gets set up on the 1st of December, which this year did not happen. It has been a very busy start to the month, so it was just one of those things. 


Getting ready to start, with the box behind us, and the vacuum ready for the fallen "leaves".


Lily also gets into the Christmas spirit, but she is not a fan of that head-gear.
She would not sit still, thus the blurry pic.


Tree up, busy opening up all the branches...

....baubles, tinsel and lights going on...

Tadaa! All done and putting on the star :-)

Geno putting the first prezzie under the tree. I wonder what it could be?!

Merry Christmas to all our friends, family and wishing you all a happy, blessed Christmas. God is good!
'n Baie Geseende Kersfees aan al ons vriende en familie, en ons wens julle 'n gelukkige, rustige feestyd toe. God is groot!

The afternoon before, enjoying a late lunch at a new eatery near home (Catalano's).
Karla had the Parma (as one does) and Eugene had the steak and chips.

Some basketball action - last game of 2017

Eugene and his team mates played their last game of the year tonight, at 7:45pm. A bit late, but they all played very well, and it was a pleasure to see how they have all grown in confidence. Eugene has also improved in leaps-and-bounds. I was impressed & proud :-)

The pictures below were all taken with Karin's trusty Sony RX100, which is not exactly a sports camera. Still, the pics have a nice feel to them.

...now, to get some rest before a hectic weekend kicks off...

Gene taking a penalty shoot. Got one, missed one.




Johnny getting some air ;-)

Lucas taking a shot

Alex flying around the court, as usual. Good game.

Lucas again.

A good win for the boys. Well deserved and well done! 52 to 15.

A Freo visit and some snaps of Lily-baby



A 1958 (I think) Ford Thunderbird parked in the artsy precinct in Freo. 
Karla outside one of the many boutique bookstores.


Karla doing a Henna pattern on Karin's back. The pigment stains the skin for around a week and then disappears completely.

Lilly baby!
