Happy birthday Bianca!

Today Bianca is 9!  Hard to believe that she is 9 already.  It feels like it has happened too fast.  Of course we did try and tell Bianca that since she was born in South Africa she really won't be 9 until it is about 6:30pm on the 18th of June (South African time), but she wasn't interested in our theory :-).  This morning she woke up to "Happy birthday" and a few small presents from us, after school I took her to get a new bike as hers is really way too small now and this evening we went out for dinner. 

I was going through some of our old photos tonight and it really has been a bit of a trip down memory lane.  As I was going through this, I remembered this song that Paul recorded for Youtube just last year (click here).

Happy birthday Bianca!  We are so proud to have you as our daughter.  You are an amazing kid and a great big sister!

Here are some photos of Bianca the past 9 years:

What a great selection of pictures showing her growing up in years. I love looking at old pictures I could spend hours looking at them :))
I just had a look at your last post about her party, looks like a fab time was had by all.
