1st Day of School Dubai

After a 3 month summer break the kids have finally started school! I am excited, even though it is a bit quiet around here, wait, especially because it is quiet around here!
The boys are so brave.  1st day at a new school in a new country and they act like they do it every day.
John and I heard a door at 4 am so he got up to check on the boys.
He slowly opens the door to find Kaiden, hair brushed, full uniform on, bed made to a crisp, sitting on the corner of his bed.
John says, "Baby, it's not time to get up yet, it's 4 am".
To which Kaiden replies, "I know, but I'm ready!"
Ethan on the other hand, oh my Ethan.
Sloppily gets out of bed, gets dressed and spills breakfast on his uniform.  They are so different, I love everything about them.

In the lobby

 Little sister seeing them off.  She smiled like crazy when they came home, she loves her brothers soooo much!
 Ethan waiting for the bus, he entertains himself by playing.
 Kaiden waiting for bus, stares out the window and counts the seconds.
 I love these eyes so full of wander.

 Ethans class.  Check this, 7,500 miles from GA and Ethans teacher is from Atlanta! She moved here a few days after we did!
 Kaidens teacher is from New Zealand.
Kaidens class has only 11 students and Ethans has 17 and both classrooms have assistant teachers.  I think that this is amazing!
 The teachers will not be overwhelmed and actually have time to teach, what a concept!
What the boys love is that the school has iPads! I think that is pretty cool too.
And me, what did I do today?
While doing some laundry Amalia was laying on this blanket next to me (she will not let me out her sight and our shipment has not come yet so I have none of her toy sit up things) looking absolutely gorgeous.  

And this last one I KNOW will melt her Daddys heart.  Just for you my love =)

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!
