Fun With Frances

I met someone, yes, a new friend, Frances, I am not as anti social as I sometimes think I am. =)
My baby doctor in Atlanta was also her doctor!
When I told her (the doctor) I was moving to Dubai she told me she had a patient in labor across the street in labor right now that is planning a move to Dubai.
After I moved here I got her information and we had a lunch date.
Oh, and did I mention her daughter was born 10 days before Amalia?

Lunch went well then this weekend we got the entire families together for lunch at a resort.

Well let me tell you, John and her husband Michael had an immediate bromance from the "opening of the conversation". (Inside joke) See that? ...inside joke...
That means we are friends, and I am funny, but none of you get it, but I amuse myself anyway.  
She actually lives an hour and a half away in Abu Dhabi but enjoys visiting Dubai so she had another visit with me yesterday.

Where we went for  lunch had great entertainment for the children, and a playroom for them which was nice for us.
And then about 12 swords came home and the party continued.
Amalia watched the boys and thought, hey, I'm a big girl now, I can do this!
Yesterday she actually grabbed a sword and started sword fighting with Ethan.
She is such a big girl now.

And just so you know, my daughter is sleeping which means I have a moment for a rambling blog so be prepared.

Please excuse my mess in the kitchen, no dish rack for drying, no dishwasher as you can see from that big empty space.
People like me, we have our priorities straight.
Nice rug, nice curtains... hand washing every night.
Don't judge, it's what makes me happy!

 Here is Amalias new friend (only friend) Collie.  I call her Amalia 2 because they look similar and sound exactly alike.

As I mentioned above, Amalia is asleep, and has been for a long time.
Want to know why?
Because she kept me and John up quite a bit last night.  Grrrrr.
Our shipment has arrived but is currently going through customs.
Even though we got rid of most our furniture we kept the beds.  
Know what that means? We were able to buy a couch etc. but are waiting for our beds.
Air Mattresses.
And Amalia, yes, no crib, so where is she, with us.
I think she is just as over the air mattress as I am and wants her crib back.
So I made her a cuddly little spot on the couch and she has been fast asleep.
Can't wait for our stuff to get in our new home!!

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!
