Weekend Fun

After 3 solid weeks of doing "kids stuff", we have a kid free weekend!! (Minus a fetus of course) So, what can an exhausted pregnant girl do? Not much, but we did manage to have a full and entertaining weekend.I had a fudge craving, perfect excuse to take a quick trip to Helen on a Friday evening.  I am so so so glad we went.  I always find Helen to be very romantic, and, as usual, it was.  Can never have too much romance =) 

Between a lot of hand holding and eye gazing we found some time to be a little silly while grabbing some fresh squeezed lemonade, I'm SO making a pitcher of that! 

It was a great break from my typical going to the pool... and I guess that's all I have been doing!! It's obviously not THAT bad to go to the pool frequently, up keeping my summer glow, and spending time with John when he can come with me, but I have been missing my gym time now that I have become lazy and suspended my membership... =(  I seem to keep up on exercise walking through EVERY baby store in the entire Atlanta area!

Anyway, today we went to Cirque du Soleil "Dralion", it was the usual Cirque du Soleil AMAZING!! It is about my 6th show, don't think I will ever get tired of it.
All in all, a great week and even better weekend.  Can't wait for the boys to get home, I always miss their little faces. =)

Oh! And even though you can't really tell in the pics, little baby Benham is getting bigger and bigger, which of course means I'm having a harder and harder time fitting into my teeny clothes, so exciting!

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!
