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…

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…

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!
