Our First Blog!!

  This is actually our second blog but since I had no clue what I was doing I somehow lost the actual first one (frustrating!).  I decided to go ahead and give it another try while reminding myself to breathe and keep calm.

Truth is I don't even remember what it said or I could just repeat the whole thing.  Anyway, this is John and my first time blogging, thought it would be cute to catalog our journey, I wish I did this long ago because I am sure there are many things from our past year plus some that we don't remember.

  And it would seem that now is a bad time to start blogging because we have been so unbelievably busy.  Got back from a 10 day trip to Jamaica, wish was wonderful, got to see my family and my Grandmother, who is looking well I must say!! She may disagree, she is however pleased with all the weight she has lost because of her illness.
Back to Atlanta and an immediate spring break, boys were going mad with nothing to do after coming straight back from a trip where there was always something to do (thanks to my wonderful cousins and family). Thank God for Jesse who entertained them for the remainder of their Spring Break (thank you, they had a wonderful time). I know it may seem like coming back from a 10 day trip to Jamaica will leave you feeling relaxed... WRONG! Super stressed, dealing with people... not easy, run away on a road trip? SURE!! 2 of my best advisers (Mummy and Lisa) put in a good word for Charleston North Carolina, done!  It was simple, quiet, romantic and beautiful, just what we needed.  Nothing like laying in the lap of the one you love watching the sky as you sail around on a boat... except of course being dragged up to see wild dolphins all around!!!






We always like talking to the locals, they will always know what the best things around to do are.  Someone told us about a tree called "Angel Oak" that wasn't far.  It is a huuuge 1,500 year old Oak Tree, it was Amazing! An albino squirrel was running around, pretty cool. 

It is great to be back home with the boys.  Back on a school and gym schedule.  Back to real life, I love that "real life" actually means something good.  =)

Beautiful Baby Shower

This past weekend was our baby shower!!  We decided to do it a bit early because I am one of those over-organized, over-prepared types.  It was hosted by my best friend Kindle and my sister Bianca.

I told Kindle I wanted a slight winter wonderland pink theme since it is so close to Christmas and this is what I walked in to!
It was absolutely beautiful, and we were joined by all our best family and friends, we appreciate everyone that made this such a special day for us.


 This game was to guess how big I was and believe it or not the winner was Ethan!!
He definitely knows his Mummy!
 The chocolate diaper game. (It was Johns first shower, he must've thought we were all crazy).
 Getting ready for presents!! (The boys got to open them all).
 Kindle surprised the boys with a gift each.
It was a shirt with their picture saying "I'm the biggest Brother" and "I'm the big Brother" for the hospital.
Most thoughtful thing ever!!!
I wish I could relive this day over and ov…

Our Garden

I have promised the kids that once spring came around we can plant a garden since in our top back yard we have 2 big beds.
It was s a lot of work to clean out the beds it was full of debris that took us a long time to sift out, but it was oh so worth it!

I wish I had before and after pictures to show you just how bad it was, but I didn't think about it because I was in full on mission mode.

We still need to plant the second bed, it has been a bit rainy, and to be completely honest I am terrified of worms, caterpillars and snakes.

My community Facebook page has been posting about copperheads everywhere so I am hyper paranoid when I am out there, but I hope to get around to it soon!










Settling Into Spring

Georgia has been absolutely beautiful for spring so far.
I love almost aspects.
The blue skies, the greenery, the flowers, being outside, having our waterfall back on, nights outside and so much more.
I noticed today that my seeds are starting to sprout in our garden and that makes me incredibly excited and proud. I even love the rain and the storms, every thing is so cozy and not cold!

And best of all, having friends and family to enjoy it with.

The parts we could do without is the pollen and i85 going up on flames.
