Just Another Seaside Weekend

On Thursday, which is the last workday of the week here, we saw a sign downstairs that every Thursday they will be having a kids movie at the beach club right downstairs from our condo.
So of course, we go.
It was Bee movie.  John and I didn't watch it, we chatted and enjoyed the sea breeze, and Amalia slept through it.
We say all the time that we don't know how we could ever adjust to living somewhere else.
Gym a few feet from our door, mini mart and restaurant and beachclub downstairs, pool and beach, perfect weather all year, gourmet grocery store a 3 minute walk to next door, subway that delivers, the grocery store even delivers!
I have gotten spoilt. We all have.
When the kids get their allowance they run down to the mini mart for a lollipop.
Amalia enjoys our daily walk to the gourmet grocery for a fruit tart.
Every one on the walk knows and loves her.
All the security in our building, the mini mart cashiers, the workers in the grocery.
I love this little community here.
And we will never get tired of the beach... ever.



And I am very happy to announce that I made it to the craft stores this past week!
Yay!
And have gotten straight to work on some halloween projects, which I am very excited to share with you all.
Sometimes I think that when you are limited is when you truly have to be creative.
This is what is happening now.
 Crafting supplies are very limited here and I feel as though my hands are tied, but I am making it through and very excited about the results I am getting so far.

So be on the lookout for my new work!

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!
N…
