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…

We Are Expecting!!!

John, myself and the boys are excited to announce that we are going to have a new addition to the family!!!!!  Excited, overjoyed, elated are a few of the words to describe how we all feel right now.
After having Ethan I truly thought I was never going to have another baby, not because I did not want one (because I did) but because, let's just say circumstances were less than ideal at the time.
John definitely did not expect to ever be...expecting... again either! But I guess we both never expected to find each other. =) This is something we have talked about since day 1, and the time is finally here and now!
First things first... Need that cocoa butter to keep everything in check!!
Next, baby naming, it takes me forever to find a name I like, so the earlier start we get, the better!!

I have lost 2 pounds but my tummy is obviously growing!!

I put on 40pounds each pregnancy, believe it or not, so I'm ready!

Thanx to Mummy and Daddy for good, genes, I always pop right back to …

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!
