"Unofficial" Anniversary

John and I mark today as our "unofficial" anniversary! Doesn't make sense, okay, well here's the truth, we were officially together sometime in November but neither of us remember the day =(  How sad.  How do we choose today to mark the beginning?

Two years ago today is the first time we ever hung out outside my job where we met.  My coworkers and I became friends with John (as we did most our customers) and for the first time he hung out without us outside of work.  It was weird because we never saw him outside our workplace before but it was fun for us to all get to hang out while the rest of us didn't have to work. We didn't know it at the time, but it was the beginning of something BIG.

The very next day some other of my customers invited me to a bbq (yes, as I said I made lots of friends with my customers) and I of course said, SURE!  And John and I ended up hanging out there together.  At the bbq I stepped away to make a phone call and when I was walking back over by John our eyes met, and there was magic.  I wasn't sure if he felt it too, because we were always just friends, but talking about it later we both mark that as one of our first "moments" where we thought "I could be with this person".  We also ate at Pacific Spice that day, I remember everything like it was yesterday.

This bbq we went to isn't just any bbq, it's called the "Break-A-Leg Party".  The lady that invited me jumped 24 feet into 2ft of water and broke both her legs, ouch!!!  She didn't have insurance so she started this party to raise money for her many surgeries.  We went last year again and they were all so excited to see that we were a couple and they like to boast that they were the beginning of our relationship, so you can imagine how excited they were when we were able to bring the boys this year for them to meet and to hear that we are pregnant! They all cannot wait till next year when we bring the baby.  This bbq has been so special to us, I have flashbacks of that first year every year and I love that we have something to do every year at this time, it has worked out so perfectly.

The boys had such a good time they begged, "Can we pleeeaaase come back tomorrow?" I said, "No, because there won't be a party tomorrow, but we can come back next year."  Their oh-so-clever response,  "There wont be a party, but there will still be a trampoline!!!"

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!
