Happy 1st Birthday Little One!!!

Today marks the day of our dear little Granddaughter Lidija's 1st birthday!!!

Here is a little pic of her First Dawn...12 July 2008

taken by my very dear Friend Kerrie whom I grew up with...

Thank You so much mate!!!

Our very own Christmas in July Baby together with her gorgeous Mum!!!

A few posts ago I wrote about an orchid that my Sister had given to us at Christmas time 2008...this orchid is a piece of my dear Grandmother's orchid...

My Grandmother passed away 20 years ago and this orchid started flowering recently and hasn't stopped...whenever they were flowering she would take some to any occasion that was happening at the time ...and it is so special that this one is flowering for Lidija's First Birthday!!!

So for today I say...Happy First Birthday dear Lidija!!!

I cannot believe the first year has flown by so quickly!!!


Grandparents and grandchildren,

Together they create a chain of love Linking the past,

With the future.

The chain may lengthen,
But it will never part.

What a sweet little cherub baby Lidija is Dzintra! She must give you all such pleasure. As all our boys are so slow in this department, I have to make do with my dear little furry Grandpuppy Tassie. We puppy-sat her last Sunday & it took MOTH & I 2 days to get over it - she is a little whirlwind!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY little Lidija, what sweet name and you have brought the orchid flowers. I believed that those orchids are sentimental they don't flowers for just anyone. You are a special girl Lidija...! Love from your Great Aunt Nat

Happy Birthday Lidija~
Dzintra, What a sweet adorable baby Lidija is! You must be in 7th heaven right now... like me! (: I know how the time flies so fast! Our little Sophia is here for a week and we can't believe the changes.

So wonderful that your Grandmother's orchid flowered right in time for her birthday! The poem at the end is so fitting. XOXO Vicki

" We are but the sum of our ancestors..." and yours have bestowed the gift another generation for you to love and enjoy.
Lidija is a darling.
Like I mentioned before your Grandmother's spirit lives on through that orchid and she in turn was part of the celebration.
I have been away doing the cottage circuit so I too am catching up.
Hope all is well in the land down under.
xo Susan
