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…

We Are Expecting!!!

John, myself and the boys are excited to announce that we are going to have a new addition to the family!!!!!  Excited, overjoyed, elated are a few of the words to describe how we all feel right now.
After having Ethan I truly thought I was never going to have another baby, not because I did not want one (because I did) but because, let's just say circumstances were less than ideal at the time.
John definitely did not expect to ever be...expecting... again either! But I guess we both never expected to find each other. =) This is something we have talked about since day 1, and the time is finally here and now!
First things first... Need that cocoa butter to keep everything in check!!
Next, baby naming, it takes me forever to find a name I like, so the earlier start we get, the better!!

I have lost 2 pounds but my tummy is obviously growing!!

I put on 40pounds each pregnancy, believe it or not, so I'm ready!

Thanx to Mummy and Daddy for good, genes, I always pop right back to …

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!
