Christmas Preparations

I have been so worried that Christmas would not feel like Christmas at all since Thanksgiving, though it was fun, it didn't really feel like Thanksgiving at all.
I have made all these decorations (which I will post when I get photos of them) and gotten Christmas scented plug-ins, candles and sprays.
Then of course the constant stream of Christmas music.
And you know what? It has worked!
It feels like Christmas is coming!

We had a great experience at the mall yesterday.
We walked into this HUGE toy store and was immediately overwhelmed.
A genteman greeted us and would not allow us to lift a finger in the almost 2 hours we were there.
He demonstrated every item we were interested in and whatever we decided we wanted was sent to the register.
Everything was wrapped and delivered a few hours later, which I conveniently coordinated with the delivery of the tree a few hours earlier.

Yes, it feels like Christmas!

As you will see the boys friend Tiffany is becoming a part of the family.
No Amalia! That goes on the tree! She's new to this whole Christmas thing!

 Look at Amalia getting squished! I forget I'm holding her sometimes.  *lost in a moment*

 The elves came and were apparently thirsty from crossing the desert!

I see why people here love it here and can't imagine living anywhere else.  Amalia woke up with a cough so I am about to call the Palm Pharmacy and have them deliver some baby cough medicine to me!!!

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…

Our Garden

I have promised the kids that once spring came around we can plant a garden since in our top back yard we have 2 big beds.
It was s a lot of work to clean out the beds it was full of debris that took us a long time to sift out, but it was oh so worth it!

I wish I had before and after pictures to show you just how bad it was, but I didn't think about it because I was in full on mission mode.

We still need to plant the second bed, it has been a bit rainy, and to be completely honest I am terrified of worms, caterpillars and snakes.

My community Facebook page has been posting about copperheads everywhere so I am hyper paranoid when I am out there, but I hope to get around to it soon!

Settling Into Spring

Georgia has been absolutely beautiful for spring so far.
I love almost aspects.
The blue skies, the greenery, the flowers, being outside, having our waterfall back on, nights outside and so much more.
I noticed today that my seeds are starting to sprout in our garden and that makes me incredibly excited and proud. I even love the rain and the storms, every thing is so cozy and not cold!

And best of all, having friends and family to enjoy it with.

The parts we could do without is the pollen and i85 going up on flames.
