Oh mother! Thank you, but. Did you SEARCH for the most hideous photos you could find?? Maybe you should note that in the top right (where I am stealing mulberries from Nelson Mandela's house in Soweto) I had no hair. And all the ones where my hair is ORANGE - was the baldness growing out. There needs to be some excuse for such foulness....

Happy birthday to Dad also.

Happy Birthday to both of you! Alice you have a nice looking family.

A VERY HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO RICHARD AND TANYA!!!
Such beautiful family pictures Alice.
Tanya....the bald, and then orange head/hair sounds like a subject that needs to be explained on your blog!! :)
For all the yanks reading this post.....'nursing' means 'holding' in Aussie speak. I got myself into a funny situation when my youngest was born over here in the US because 'nursing' here means breastfeeding :) I asked a visiting lady...would you to 'nurse' the baby? She said, 'Oh, I don't think I'm properly equipped!' It was an amusing moment :) There are some funny differences in the language!

Happy birthday, you two! Love the timeline collage.

And I remember my mother visiting here after the birth of my first son, and wondering about the "nursing" bit too! Brings back the memories.

Happy Birthday to Tanya & Richard.

Kerry...thanks for the explanation on nursing...I was wondering what was meant too.

Being a Yank/Canuck, I would have interpeted nursing as breastfeeding. However I know now to ask when something doesn't quite sound right. Glad Kerri mentioned that. Funny all the little diferences.

Tanya looks like her Dad. What a great Family.

Alice said...

Tanya dear - I didn't have to SEARCH for hideous photos - they're everywhere.... just kidding!

I hope you realise that now that the whole world has photographic evidence of your crime of theft against Nelson Mandela, you will never be able to return to South Africa!

I hope your birthday celebration was a good one. We'll drink a toast to you on Thursday night when we go out for dinner for Dad's birthday. Love you - XXX

I meant to say 'When our OLDEST (that would be Kylie) was born over here in the US. Our youngest (Kathy) was born in OZ.
And I left out ....'like...to nurse the baby?'
Half asleep perhaps :)
