|Choosing the right cupcake is very important!|
We had a party, made party hats, had lunch, played and danced with the kids! We also just spent time with them which I think is the most important thing! They just love being hugged and talked to! The kids and staff at the home (particularly the most awesome matron Captain Nomsa) are just so fantastic and you cannot but feel absolutely swept up in the excitement and craziness of over 30 kids when you visit!
We did not spend all of the donations on the party but rather decided to buy a few items that they needed after the festive season. They decided on school shirts and underwear so 2 weeks ago we went out and bought 2 huge bags for them.

Last week Monday we went and dropped them off and also threw a small birthday party for the kids whose Birthday it has been in the last 3 months. Captain Nomsa supplied birthday gifts and we supplied cake, hot dogs and ice cream. It is definitely going to have to be a regular event as one little boy asked if we were coming back for his Birthday in July- I had to answer yes!
Our guide Tania has also come up with the best idea- we will be visiting the home on Easter weekend for an Easter Egg hunt so any chocolate donations are most welcome!
