Hello, I'm Colin and today I am ONE!
This is all so new to me - what on earth is my mommy doing bringing me
a cupcake with one gigantic burning candle?
Daddy made me wear this silly crown. I must be a prince today.
There are a lot of people singing, and I think they're singing to me!
Many of these people I know - the other little kids and I play together often.
I recognize their mommies and daddies too.
They seem to be munching smelly cheese and crackers, and chocolates from
England. I've already traveled to that country because it's where my
daddy comes from! They're eating more cupcakes too, while the daddies,
granddaddies and great grandaddies enjoy a beer, and the grandmas (one came
all the way from South Africa, she's my daddy's mom), sip their wine.
Everyone is chattering a mile a minute, my aunts and uncles, cousins and
whomever - I think I have a big family and I know they
all really love me a lot.
My cousin Jasmin was the official photographer here today - but my great
grandma Mary took these photos. You know how she has to take photos of
everything for this blog. . . . . . .but she asked me to write because she's just
very busy at the moment, and I think you know why!
