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…

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

                                                              Mummy 1st

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
