Cooking, Eating, and it Shows!

As promised I have new belly pics! =)

Over the weekend we got our Christmas photos done (yay!).
John and the boys are always so great to cooperate with me so well.

As always I spend my time cooking, and then of course eating, and as you can se from the pics it shows! lol

Here's some of last weeks dishes:

        Jamaican Chicken Soup                                                           

 
                         Mushroom and Burgundy Wine Fondue

Roast Pork with Home-made Macaroni, Gravy Green beans (UNcanned) Avocado Slices
Chicken Parmesan, Home-Made Marinara, Whole Wheat Pasta
                                       Tilapia Ready for the Grill!  
 
Curry Shrimp Over White Rice
 Surprised them with Home-made Sugar Cookies! Can you tell which is for John and Which for the boys?

I LOVE cooking for my family, I know how much they enjoy getting a healthy, tasty home-cooked meal daily.
They deserve it after a day of school and work, it's the least I can do.
I try to be as healthy as possible (want to keep him in the same shape I found him in, lol, plus I'm not ready for a double chin either),
but baking was my original love before I got into cooking, so every so often I have to pull out the flour and sugar and make it happen!

Had a relaxing weekend.  Ethan invited my sister over for a sleep over, the boys love their Inky Binky!

I am ready to get back to the flow of the week.

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!
