Precious Moments

This past weekend was Johns Birthday weekend.  I had a hard time thinking of something special, then a simple idea came to me... road trip!! We went to Savannah and Tybee Island with the boys to enjoy his special weekend outside of Atlanta.

I'm not usually the road trip type but the boys have always handled it well and since John and I have been road tripping the past few years it has really been growing on me, I guess it's the company that makes the drive as fun as the destination.





Riverstreet is always fun, of course the boys focused on the candy store and the ice cream shop, I can't lie, recently I have a sweet tooth as well!



Brothers and Best Friends, They enjoyed every moment...



We all did, and along the way we got quite a few cute pics of our "precious moments" .
 Next stop... Tybee Island!!!



It was so relaxing spending hours on the beach, there was a nice cool breeze the whole time as though God knew how perfect I wanted his Birthday weekend to be, and because John is so deserving, my wish was granted!

The boys of course found friends immediately and spent a lot of time in the ocean and playing in the sand, nothing better than to see the ones I love the most being happy.



John being John always squeezes in some play time with the kids... And me being me always representing JAMAICA everywhere we go.




                              
I was so worried about sharks.  Being from an island where the water is clear blue and shark attacks are non-existent the brown muggy water really worries me, and lo and behold a fisherman catches a shark!!

 
Ok guys, one more pic and we are OUT OF HERE!! lol
We promised Ethan we would stop by the lighthouse on the way home.
Everything was so perfect! The boys crashed on the way home, even though I was exhausted I stayed awake the whole time since John and I never seem to run out of fun things to talk about.  The boys and I came up with a cute, but simple surprise ending for John, when we got back we did sparklers.

John performing for the kids.
Just when you think everything couldn't be more perfect, we get the boys in bed and we lay down and looks like little baby had one last surprise for his/her Daddy... he felt the baby move for the first time. =)  One last "Precious Moment" to complete a perfect weekend.

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…

We Are Expecting!!!

John, myself and the boys are excited to announce that we are going to have a new addition to the family!!!!!  Excited, overjoyed, elated are a few of the words to describe how we all feel right now.
After having Ethan I truly thought I was never going to have another baby, not because I did not want one (because I did) but because, let's just say circumstances were less than ideal at the time.
John definitely did not expect to ever be...expecting... again either! But I guess we both never expected to find each other. =) This is something we have talked about since day 1, and the time is finally here and now!
First things first... Need that cocoa butter to keep everything in check!!
Next, baby naming, it takes me forever to find a name I like, so the earlier start we get, the better!!


I have lost 2 pounds but my tummy is obviously growing!!

I put on 40pounds each pregnancy, believe it or not, so I'm ready!

Thanx to Mummy and Daddy for good, genes, I always pop right back to …

Mr. and Mrs. John Benham!!!

This is the moment we have both been waiting for for years!
It was perfection.
Nothing short of magical.

We had quite a bit of time after getting ready, there were so many emotions, so happy I laughed, so happy I cried.

I love these photos and am so happy that every moment was captured.  Can't wait to see the professional ones!



                                Waiting for the go ahead
                                        It's time!!
                             Everyone ready to come down

With this ring...
You may kiss your bride!

Ethan is a true romantic.  Whenever we watch movies with happy couples he always says that they are me and John.  For years he has been talking about us getting married. After the ceremony when we came in he was crying.   He said he tried to hold it in as long as possible...                                            Whispering sweet nothings
