1st Date Night in Dubai

Okay, I am IN LOVE with Dubai!
I though it was pretty good, but last night, I am still gushing over.

Beautiful!
Amazing!
Breathtaking!
Extravagant!
Luxurious!
Pampered!
Exquisite!
Simply, perfection.

Okay, now let me stop talking about John and get to telling you what you really want to hear about, Dubai.  Lol.

I think it was by the marina where we went.  We had a friend of ours maids come watch the kids (can't wait to get our own!).  Amalia of course came with us (I am still breastfeeding, and this baby refuses to eat food).
So off we go.  This place was in a hotel, a very large, lavish hotel. There is a shopping area, I don't dare call it a mall.  Its indoors but they make it appear as though it is outdoors and it is beautiful.  Shame on me for not taking photos.  I have been so lost in this new experience that I don't always pull out the camera to capture every amazing thing.

I did get a few though.

We ate at a really nice Indian restaurant.  Okay, so I think this is the coolest thing.  Yes it was decorated impeccably, but when we sat on a couch looking thing we realized it was suspended from the air! Amazing.  Then, yes, there's more, when the food came out they came and got Amalia and disappeared with her so we could enjoy a romantic dinner together! I could get used to this!

This last picture was so sweet to me.  We went somewhere else for desert and Amalia was sleeping and we looked over and saw this teeny hand.  I love this girl.
Amazing night.  I am loving this so far.  As I'm typing this I'm skyping with Mummy Bowen.  Best of all worlds.

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!
