Say What?!

Yes People, believe it, I went camping!

Seems like it is hard to believe for most, I am not sure why, do I really seem like I am not the camping type?  I am almost offended by that... almost.  It was lots of fun,  and since John has done this many times before we were very prepared. And since I love to cook camp fire cooking was a new challenge for me, which worked out very well, everyone there loved my jerk chicken... yummm. 

Talk about an exhausting weekend, something about the outdoors drains me.  Between all the Cub Scout activities, kids running everywhere, food preparation, cleaning up, running off to a birthday party...
Busy busy busy.  The boys had a lovely time and Kaiden is excited about the belt loops and patches he earned, little super scout.  

John's little helper...

Me, not so much.
Got the job done.
Nice and cozy.
Dinner? don't mind if I do.
                                                    Whats a campout without smores??

 First night was a bit chliiy so we all had to share extra snuggles.

Definitely a fun camping trip, will do again for sure!

Spent the afternoon with Lisa,

always a good time.
  Got a quick nap, now dinner with Lisa and Matthew, Kaidens BFF.  

Sometimes its hard to keep up with myself! Can't wait for Monday when the kids go back to school and I can get back on my regular schedule for the week!

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…

Christmas 2016

I can honestly say that I miss blogging.  Facebook "memories" option has made me realize how nice it is to be able to look back at our family life and adventures.

I will (eventually) try and get caught up on the past few months, because we all know that I have photographed each and every moment, but for now I will start with Christmas.

We started shopping later than normal but managed to get everything done with time to spare to relax and enjoy the season.

Mummy came from England, I did not realize it but this is only her first Christmas with Amalia!  We spent the day with great family friends, Peter, Debbie and their family.  It has been a tradition for many years to do Christmas and/or Thanksgiving with them.

As per usual we had Santa Jeaux come and visit along with all the kids friends.  It was such a nice reunion not only with our friend Santa, but the kids miss their friends dearly it is always a great occasion to get them together again.  I appreciate all the other m…

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!
