Survived The Chaos

The past few days has been a total rollercoaster.  Went to the ER on Sunday, tests were inconclusive.  Had to see my doctor on Monday.  She was not sure what to think of the results either and gave me her best guess and suggested surgery.  I told her no.  Last night I regretted it majorly.  I thought I was going to die, ok, that may be dramatic, but my doctor did think I may die, seriously.  Worst case death, best case emergency surgery, said she was expecting my call.  I broke this morning and called her, and rushed to the ER... again.

Got more tests done this morning and honestly, it is a miracle how much the results changed in 48 hours.  I went in with my doctor planning on giving me emergency surgery and she had to rush over and tell everyone not to touch me, because they were all wrong and I was going to be okay.  Whew! What a relief.  So after major pain meds, a rollercoaster emotional day, I am home and feeling great.
My ex-mother in law has been keeping the kids for me, she is such a sweetheart.  She brought them to see me in the hospital, which really brightened my day.  Mummy and Barbara have been so supportive and offered great advice.  My poor father was so so worried, he can't stand the thought of losing another daughter.  My sister Binx has been at my side.  And of course, John, who has had to, and continues to take care of me since I am ordered to not do anything but go to the bathroom.  He has been so helpful and patient.  Thank God for miracles, friends and family who has been there for me and reminded me how blessed I am to have such wonderful people in my life.
Before all the chaos, we took a drive on Saturday, got to love GA, it can be so beautiful.  Here are some pictures from our pleasant day before the madness.

We found this cute little wishing well, happy I had my camera in my handbag.

My little Pumpins, what I live for.
 You are taking a picture with me, whether you like it or not!

Then we found this cute barn and stopped to take a peek.  The horses across the field saw us and ran over, one in particular had a special bond with me. Unfortunately the boys fell asleep and missed it.

 Don't eat me!

Always Grateful

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!
