Happy New Year 2019 and a Linky!

Happy New Year 2019!

I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday with friends and family. We visited my in-laws on South Africa's West Coast for 10 days. Here are some family pics and a few Christmas decorations, including two wire-beaded sheep parading as reindeer! The sheep were at the neighbor's house. Amanda helped her grandma make the beach themed Christmas wreath a couple of years ago and it still looks good. The cat and dog belong to my in-laws.

I've decided that my Picture Perfect Party Linky will now run from Tuesday to Tuesday and I will no longer host the Make My Saturday Sweet weekend blog hop. Please feel free to link any family friendly post below!


RIP Benny!

We have some sad news! Our dear family dog, named Benny, passed away two days ago. We had a kind family looking after our pets while we were at my in-laws' beach house. They came in twice a day to feed the dogs and cats and to take the dogs for a walk. The mother walked Benny who was going slowly the last couple of days while her husband and their young son took Koda on a bigger walk. The family also made use of our pool, so the dogs got more attention than just a couple of walks a day. (It's summertime in South Africa, in case you're wondering.) Thankfully, Benny never showed any signs of illness. It was just his time to go. He was 14 years old and died in his sleep. We adopted him from an animal shelter as a puppy and was a big part of our lives.
