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…

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!
