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…

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…
