Honeymoon Phase 1: Germany

Several weeks after our wedding, now that the family is gone and we are a bit settled into the new home it was definitely time for our honeymoon!
Bags packed, ready to go! (One guess which is mine!)

On to the first of many flights and the 1st stop, Wurzburg, Germany!

Germany was nothing that I expected.  I always thought the language was harsh, and so would be the people and that the food wasn't good, and I will be the first to admit how wrong as was!

From the moment we got off the plane the people were so sweet and the language was soft and pretty.

And the food? Don't get me started! Amazing!

I thought this was funny in the airport, I guess the see their women as being rather large!
 So what was there to do in Wurzburg? Visit this beautiful castle!  After the most fairy tale wedding a visit to a castle just seemed right!

Here it is in the distance behind us.
 Here it is from the town (which was super cute by the way)

In the town for some shopping, eating and sight seeing!

As you can imagine, I took WAY more photos than I am posting here, one day when I feel up to it I will post all to facebook.

And no, Germany was not perfect, but almost, I had no idea how much Europeans smoke! Geez! I really can't stand cigarette smoke! But other than that... pure amazingness!

Signing out from Denmark! (Yes, we are now in Denmark!...and it is beautiful here as well!)

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!
