We Will Miss You

She held on longer than any of us expected, but this morning my Grandmother lost her battle with cancer.  She slipped into a "coma-like" state last night and died peacefully in her bed.  My mother- heart broken, I am not sure it has sunk in yet.  Me- I just want to be there for her and I am very, very happy that her suffering was not too great or too long and she had a calm and peaceful passing.  
This picture below is last Thanksgiving when my Grandmother visited.  She complained of a throat ache (throat cancer) and bronchitis, and an annoying cough that wouldn't go away (lung cancer.)  It was shortly thereafter we learnt of her sickness.  It was nice spending that last time with her while she was still well.
She was able to spend quality time with her grandkids as well as her great-grands.
 The ENTIRE family took turns visiting in Jamaica, as she did not have the strength to see us all at once.  It was good to see her, even though our visits were short and far between as to not overwhelm her.  She loved hearing about all the things we did in the days, stories about the children, and she was adamant that I keep John, because she adores him so much.  When I went back a few weeks later I brought a photo book cataloging our previous trip.  She really enjoyed seeing the pictures of her great Grands enjoying Jamaica, her country, on the same beaches, same roads, same landscapes that her, her children and Grandchildren once enjoyed in their childhood.  
We will miss her greatly and cherish all the memories that we have made with her.  We love you Granny Carolyn!

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!
