Mama’s milk is the favourite ….

…. but even other kind of nourishment interest the sweet lolifantje.

Is it snowing?

No, it’s rather ‘haying’ 🙂

  1. Was fĂŒr ein sĂŒĂŸer und munterer Bursche.
    Mutter und Tante passen gut auf ihn auf. 🙂

  2. Dear Mervi
    I hope that Patricia Roberts is able to visit today’s page as she loves her elephants.
    When I worked in Brussels Rotterdam was a comfortable train ride away. Now I am
    glad to be able to see these picture from home.

  3. Dear Nel!
    Thank you for the pictures of Radjik. He is a nice child 🙂 He looks very small next to his mother.
    Hugs
    Ludmila

  4. Dear Nel, wat een klein schattig dikkopje. Lately, I saw a little video with Radjik falling in their pool, a more or less unwanted bath but 3 adults were immediately there for the rescue. I suppose that the hay storm is nicer and/or at least warmer than a snow storm.

  5. Liebe Mervi,

    wer kann dem Charme eines Lolifanten widerstehen?
    Kein Mensch und die Tanten sind genauso verliebt in den Kleinen.
    Und wenn es demVergnĂŒgen dient, ist jedes Material einem kleinen Elefanten willkommen.

    Patricia, schön, dich wenigstens hier zu lesen in der Hoffnung, dass Everbeek von den
    Fluten in Belgien verschont geblieben ist.

    Herzliche GrĂŒĂŸe und Danke an Nel Hoekstra fĂŒr die tollen Fotos!

  6. Dear Nel!
    Thank you for these lovely photos of Radjik!
    I suspect that everyone who sees him falls head over heels in love with the little trunk bearer….
    Little elephants are just so cute and charming.

    Hugs
    Anke

  7. So sĂŒĂŸ! Ich habe viel gelacht mit dem kleine Heutier.

    Liebe GrĂŒĂŸe, Erika

  8. Ich finde alle Minifanten einfach nur sĂŒĂŸ!!!!!!

    Danke Dir fĂŒr die entzĂŒckenden Bilder, liebe Nel!

    Hugs,
    Anita

  9. Thank you very much dear Mervi and Nel.
    Best wishes to Radjik and his mum.
