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…

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!
