Happy Birthday John!

A couple days ago was John's birthday! Yay!
I would like to be able to say I planned this fantastic day for him, but I can't.
Thursday is our Friday, so it starts our weekend.

I actually ventured out on my own on Wednesday to the Dubai mall to meet someone my doctor in Atlanta put me in contact with, she has a daughter 10 days older than Amalia and she just moved here as well.

I got there early to find a special gift for John.

Even though John is never a fan of gold I could not resist this gold theme we had going on.


And he loved it!

We did not have the romantic dinner we normally do.
The day did not have the "birthday" feel.
What were we doing?
Shopping! Shopping for our new home. =)
We are beyond excited about our move and have the keys but can't move until the furniture arrives.
Pretty cool birthday weekend I'd say!

And Amalia had a birthday gift up her sleeve.
On the way to the mall she said "dada"! And then she would not stop!
The whole way there over and over again "dadadadada" followed by laughter and smiles.  So sweet

I would have been upset if it wasn't his birthday since I have spent the past few weeks saying "mama" all day.

It was perfect.

Anyway, here are a few photos I snapped of the little sweetie.



This first one she posed, I think it is her "angelic" look!

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!
