Happy Birthday to JJ & Jezz!!

Happy Happy Birthday to our beautiful girls!!

Our sweet peas, turning 9 today!!

Every other week the elementary school at AISJ has assembly. The kids who have a Bday or other celebrations are mentioned. The kids who like to perform a music instrument can do so. News and other information is shared. It's a nice way to stay in touch with what is going on.

Going to school to celebrate. At morning assembly all the kids with a Bday these coming 2 weeks will get a pencil and the whole elementary school sings for them.

Not only Bday celebrations, in this case Amelie, the girl next to JJ is leaving for the UK and everybody sings a goodbye song for her.

Then time for cupcakes for 40 kids, 2 classes.

We decided to celebrate together both classes, so I can be there at the same time.

All the kids ready to sing.

Eating the cupcakes at recess, from L to R: Emma, Doriana, Valeria, Jezz, Elle, JJ, Cathlynn, Rose & Jordan.

A fun day at school, celebrating with their friends. On Friday we will have a huge Disco Foam Party and Cocktail party for the parents as well. So about 40 children and 20 adults I expect. Since it will be the last party in this house we better celebrate well!

More about the second part of the celebrations on Saturday. For dinner tonight the girls can choose where we will go...
Have a fun FREEDOM DAY, because today is also a special day not only for us but for whole South Africa!! 17 years ago ALL South African's had the right to vote!!

Looks like they had a great day, those cupcakes look so delicious! I'm going to make some red, white and blue ones for the Royal Wedding this week! x

Awesome pictures, Mireille. Here's how you know you're not in the US. Here they would never allow you to light a candle on a cupcake in school! Silly.

I love the pictures of the girls with their teachers. It looks like they are VERY loved!

Sook Sun Wan Goed!!

Really, not a single candle?? According to Jasmine: "That is stupid!" Not my words but hers :-)

Wendy said...

I agree with Jasmine!

Happy Birthday beautiful girls!!! Hope their day was amazing. Can't wait to hear about the party. Bet it will be really fun! Love all the school pics - looks like a wonderful place for them.

ps - your cupcakes put me to shame! How do you get that perfect swirl? Are the hot pink bows fondant? I am so stealing that! :-)

I am not a baker, so I bought them Jen!! With my house hunting and just coming back from my Easter trip, it was all too much. Although I am cooking for tonight, about 50 people coming over...
