Chantal (as well as Glenys and Elmarie) and I know each other since primary school. We were family friends and we spend HOURS horse riding, drawing, playing with their Jack Russell-dog, finding chameleons in the garden and then of coarse fighting with our brothers. When i was 14 they moved to USA and my heart was broken! We wrote endless letters…and Chantal’s letters are the BEST. Her handwriting and words are beautiful and she writes in all directions, colours and sizes. (Chantal, i think i want a handwritten card for my birthday in January please! )

When i was in Denver for David and Emily’s wedding, the Haas family came all the way from Albuquerque (New Mexico) to Denver to visit. Jason (chantal’s husband) was so awesome, looking after the older 2 girls while we went garage-sale-shopping with the 2 babies. He also made the most amazing hoender potjie. Yes, he is American, but Chantal’s dad taught him well!

And of coarse we had to take a few pics:

(PS: Kira, we missed you!)
