Rachael Emily-Baby Naming

The hardest part about having a child for me is finding a name.
 I have been dreading the naming process, that is why we started so early.
I didn't get a name for Ethan until I went into labor and was hoping that would not be the case this time.
I am a super organized control freak kind of person so it has been stressing me out.

We decided to go to Barnes and Noble to give it another try.  While searching, and hating every name, I re-suggested a name that I have loved for a long time and we decided! Yay! I was SO excited! I still am so excited.
I never would've guessed we would find a name so soon.
For now I will announce the middle names and save her name for her birth announcement.  The middle names are Rachael Emily.
Rachael is to honor my lovely sister that passed 8 years ago.  She is my heart.
Emily is my little sisters middle name, and she is my everything.
My 2 favorite people balled up into one precious angel, our daughter. =)

Celebrate with a pumpkin spice hot chocolate and a chilly Autumn walk.



We watch a movie with the boys every night.  We do seasonal movies, because I am season obsessed.  We got to start this season with one of my all time faves, The Corpse Bride.
I cannot watch this movie enough, I'm a hopeless romantic and huge Tim Burton fan, this movie was made for me.  Hopefully the boys will let me watch Coraline next, it's such an eerie movie, I really don't like it one bit but can't help myself.
 My other favorite thing about fall...

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!
N…
