Birthday Photos: Nekesa Turns Three!

Happy Monday to you, and hope you had a great weekend. So what was I up to over the weekend?

Well, on Saturday, the boys and I went over to Nekesa’s birthday party. Nekesa turned three years old, and she is the daughter of my good friend Ninda Kang’ethe. Ninda and I worked together at our former workplace, where we shared an office. We were at some point pregnant at the same time -as she was with Nekesa and her twin, and I with Ello. Let’s just say there was alot of cravings and feeding in that office :).

I call Ninda a supermom because she has five children, is a career mum who works an 8 – 5pm job, runs a successful cupcakes side business and still manages to look so beautiful and graceful. Me and my two kids the way they consume my entire life, now five? The Lord does indeed give everyone a plate of what He knows they can handle.

So anyway, here’s some photos of how Nekesa’s birthday party went.

The bouncing castle. I must be behind news because nowadays  bouncing castles come complete with an inbuilt slide? Okay.

Meanwhile, Ninda was in the kitchen preparing all the snacks. She's such a home-maker this one.

My boys and I had a good time at the birthday and as usual, were very sad when it was time to leave. Ello wanted Nekesa to come home with us because they had had so much fun together.

Nekesa’s birthday each year is always a bitter-sweet moment for Ninda, her husband and their children as they celebrate it in loving memory of Nekesa’s twin sister Tsisika, who passed on just a few hours after birth. Continue dancing with the angels, little princess. You were gone too soon :(.

    • Thanks Ninda. The boys have not stopped talking about Nyambura and Nekesa. We should have carried one of those girls home :).
