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…

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!
