The Journey

As you guys can imagine it took a lot of work to get here.  First we sold the house (and everything in it, we wanted a completely fresh start) and moved into a furnished apartment then had to pack everything from there to ship to Dubai then the trip here of course.  Not to mention much more obstacles and life dramas we had to overcome.  But, here we are, and it feels good, no GREAT.

No cell phones yet (we have no one to call), so no texts, not getting the urge to check facebook or any other social media out of habit etc.  Just loads of time to spend together, and of course for me to catch up on the blog while John works from his computer.

Speaking of catching up on the blog there are a few things I know I will not have time to catch up on.

1.  August 11th Amalia turned 5 months!! Happy Birthday baby girl!!!

2.  August 15th our 3 year (not wedding) Anniversary!


We moved on August the 16th.  We actually chose August 10th, I just threw that random date out, but when it came time to book the tickets I realized I wanted more time with the family, so again, we randomly chose the 16th.
What are the chances of 3 years to the date then we wake up the next morning to start a brand new life in a whole new country? Did I mention we are 7,500 miles away?  Scary, but cool.

Okay, the point of this blog.  The Journey.  Yes, blood sweat and tears for many many years, then the grueling packing etc.  Since I have a mac now, and I discovered iMovie... you see where I am going with this.
The camera is supposed to be THE ONE for videos, but clearly it's a bit too fancy for me so I am struggling with figuring out this automatic focus, so excuse how amateur this is.  But please, enjoy!

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!
