Man of many Talents

I have been so busy, which seems to be the usual trying to keep 2 little energetic boys entertained.
  I never want to hear "I'm bored!" So we try and fill their little lives with activities.
  I love fall! It has fun, outdoor inexpensive activities with the perfect weather to enjoy it all to the fullest.

Evening walks after dinner, he tells the kids scary stories.

 Hush yah baby, don't listen to him, there are no monsters in the bushes, and those are not monster footprints in the grass.

 Took Kaiden to a scout looperama in Dahlonega, our little up and coming photographer Ethan took this while waiting for Kaiden to complete earning his belt loops.
 Only in North GA!
 Since we were already up that way next stop was the pumpkin patch.
 Admiring his talents.  He is so good at everything he does. =)
 And the grand finale!! John did such a great job copying these patterns.
Thank you sooooo much! No other pumpkins we make can ever top this. 
They are even looking into each others eyes.
 All that in just a 24 hour period, I was exhausted!!
Ethan had insisted he wanted to learn to play golf.
A much simpler day, where I could relax and just watch.
Again, man of many talents, story teller, artist, pumpkin carver, golf tutor...
Kaiden is AMAZING at this! He definitely needs to keep it up.
 Ethan on the other hand had some serious golf rage.
There was frustration, crying, yelling.  John explained to him that this isn't the first time he has seen this on the golf course, its normal.
He told them a story about a man he used to play with who always cheated and justified it by being the one that paid for the game, which sometimes gave John some serious golf rage!
They thought it was really funny that John used to get upset and throw/break clubs at this insanity!
Ethan laughed and promised that next time he won't get mad or cry, he will just let his brain tell him to try harder.
Good day yesterday, John came home early and we got to spend lots of extra time together. =)  Fresh baked gooey brownies, glass of milk by candle light while watching Casper the Movie? Don't mind if I do!
Love my Life.

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!
