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…

Christmas 2016

I can honestly say that I miss blogging.  Facebook "memories" option has made me realize how nice it is to be able to look back at our family life and adventures.

I will (eventually) try and get caught up on the past few months, because we all know that I have photographed each and every moment, but for now I will start with Christmas.

We started shopping later than normal but managed to get everything done with time to spare to relax and enjoy the season.

Mummy came from England, I did not realize it but this is only her first Christmas with Amalia!  We spent the day with great family friends, Peter, Debbie and their family.  It has been a tradition for many years to do Christmas and/or Thanksgiving with them.

As per usual we had Santa Jeaux come and visit along with all the kids friends.  It was such a nice reunion not only with our friend Santa, but the kids miss their friends dearly it is always a great occasion to get them together again.  I appreciate all the other m…

Our Garden

I have promised the kids that once spring came around we can plant a garden since in our top back yard we have 2 big beds.
It was s a lot of work to clean out the beds it was full of debris that took us a long time to sift out, but it was oh so worth it!

I wish I had before and after pictures to show you just how bad it was, but I didn't think about it because I was in full on mission mode.

We still need to plant the second bed, it has been a bit rainy, and to be completely honest I am terrified of worms, caterpillars and snakes.

My community Facebook page has been posting about copperheads everywhere so I am hyper paranoid when I am out there, but I hope to get around to it soon!
