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…

Star Wars Birthday Party

It's that time of year for the boys double birthday party!!
Since I... I mean they are so into star wars that was the obvious choice of a party theme.

It was so cute at the end of the party after the boys opened all their gifts and John says, "Well, what did Mummy and I get you?"  They both shrugged.  I said, "We got you this beautiful party, and that is your gift."
They both hugged us and said thank you without even complaining that we didn't buy them anything, such gracious boys!
Then John brought out their bikes and they went crazy!! It was the cutest thing.

Happy Birthday to our wonderful boys, Happy 7th and 9th Birthday Ethan and Kaiden!






















Welcoming Spring

Going from living in Jamaica where Spring is Sun and sand, to Georgia where spring is pollen, to Dubai where it is sun and sand to Illinois.
Let's just say I was not expecting a massive snow storm!
I have never experienced snow like this in my life!
Amazing what a difference 9am to noon can make!
This is how they do spring here it seems!

We had so much fun!
Lots of games with the kids, just dance 3, wii golf etc.

Of course John took the boys out to make a snowman and snowball fights and even gave them a big job to make a little money.
I don't know how they handle the cold so well, it truly amazes me how long they can stay out there and be completely okay.
I of course stayed inside, I do not like the cold, not one bit.  I do enjoy watching the snow from the windows though, it is so beautiful.
I even fell asleep on the carpet in front of the fireplace!

We did have a small mishap.  Kaiden decided he wanted to warm up his pillow pet and it melted on the glass on the fireplace!
