A Whole New World

Everyone is asking for pictures and information on our experience in Dubai.

Yes, they all do where that "outfit".

The ladies wear black, the men wear white.

Some ladies show the face, some show just the eyes and some have a black veil covering the entire face.

And yes, they all have amazing designer handbags and the most fabulous sunglasses.

Believe it or not, some have designs on the sleeves by the wrist, which match the head covering.

Oh, some just wear jeans a long shirt and the head covering.

Under the black some wear skinny jeans and nice high heels (the young slimmer ladies).

I know most believe that women are considered second class citizens.  From what I have observed the men are always helping the women with the children and they seem to get along well.  Mostly though the women are very tight knit and go out in groups of 3 to 6 and laugh and talk and of course SHOP together. And they have all been very sweet to me so far.

I observed all of this at the mall, very large luxurious malls.

We also went out and about checking out the communities to get an idea of where we want to find our permanent home.

Here we are in the lobby of our hotel.

 Amalia wasn't feeling well and had me holding her 24/7 so I got  nice little break when Daddy came home from work.

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!
