Labor Day Adventures

We have had a long exhausting weekend.   I think I finally crashed after it all at about 7:30 last night.

Friday we started off early after dropping the boys to school we went straight to the lake.

Had lots of fun with my sister, Shenelle and Seth.  Im not a fan of lake water but it was really refreshing!




Saturday was little 5 points to meet up with a friend for lunch, I always love the vibe down there, minus the massive population of homeless people that keeps on growing.

Then to my friends wedding reception.  He had the wedding in Jamaica, reception here.  Was good to see everyone again and eat some really good Jamaican food! Yummmm, Im still thinking about it!

(The pic is dark because my camera was dying so the flash wouldn't work)



Sunday, of course being that it seems like the absolute end of summer made sense to do the lake again!! A friend invited us on his houseboat so we spent the day out there.

 (Waiting for the shuttle)





The kids went CRAZY! They had their 2 favorite things, hot tub and water slide.








John and the kids disappeared most of the time, I think I heard something about 007 missions... I was called to come and witness some of them! lol.  They had so much fun together.

I actually made it out kayaking, yay me! Look at my not so little baby bump! Lol I saw this pic and was like, woah!!! Huge! Clothes definitely makes it seem smaller!







Then back home.  I fell asleep in the car and didn't get up till... well, just a few hours ago! Now time to go entertain these boys for the rest of the day!!  Hope you are all having a great holiday as well!!

We have an ultrasound in the morning, so exciting! Can't wait to see Baby Benham again!!!

Speaking of excitement, did I mention that about a month ago I got Taylor Swift tickets??? AHHHHHHHH!!! It is just sinking in now because it is less than a month now, I am SO excited! I absolutely LOVE her music and know every word to every song.  And who has the pleasure of coming with me you ask?? JOHN!! lol.  He's such a trooper and I love him!

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…

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!
