One very good friend, who works for a big hotel group, came through with a car load of stuff. Toys, coffee mugs, carry bags, soccer balls, and some other toys and things.
This morning I went to the Hyper, and spent ZAR600.00 on stationery, sweets and buscuits.
Then the Princess and I made up sweet packs, and sorted the rest in the appropriate age groups. I would still like to get blankets for them. Might just go out and buy them myself. here are some pics.
|Some balls, Pick-up-sticks, and Rubick cubes|
|GI Joe set|
|Odds.... bag fillers|
|Sand pit toys|
|Coffee mugs, with Mr. Grass heads!|
|Chips, Crayons, pencil sets, biscuits|
|20 Soccer balls!|
|Sweet packs x 20|
|The Stuff from my good friend!|
|The packs. All that still missing is a blanket.|
So we will keep it low key.
Still want to get some cold drinks to add to the packs. Then my task is done!
Getting really excited for the kids now!!
Even made up a letter for each kid (all the same) from Santa!
Your Mom or Dad might have to translate this for you, and if you too small, maybe they can keep it for you for when you are bigger and will understand.
The most precious gift we get, as adults, are our children. Even that great man, Nelson Mandela said that the future of South Africa is in the children.
So, here is a little gift, which I hope you will enjoy. Your Mom and Dad wrote to Santa (he’s a funny old man, with a long white beard, red clothes, and has a sleigh with reindeer, that has to make and deliver presents to all the GOOD children in the whole world). They wrote that you have been a special and good child all year, and deserved to get a gift.
So, because you were so good, and so special, you have been rewarded.
I hope that you and your family will enjoy a Happy and Blessed Christmas. I hope that next year will bring happiness and good fortune to your family, and that you will all have good health.
