Finally Legal

Yay! My visa came through!
The funny part about it is that it says my occupation is "housewife" then goes on to say "Not allowed to work".  Someone told John years ago, "She wants you for your money." And his response was, "If she marries me she will never work again, unless of course she wants to." Ha! So that line on the visa tickles me.
It was such a pain in the ass to get, all ex-pats here know how annoying it is trying to get a visa.
So happy I am done with that phase and I never have to leave the Palm again!

Now that I am used to this place I have found my new comfort zone which consist of pool, beach and beach club.

It has everything I want or need so I don't see any reason to ever leave.

I am finding friends here now. We get the kids together, meet at the restaurant, go to movie night, go shopping together (the only reason to leave the Palm).

Someone asked me, "Don't you feel isolated there?"
Ummm, YES!! Wonderfully isolated!

The kids have all their friends now and play and play and play for hours on end.
I mean, hello, playground on the beach, soccer on the beach, the beach, the pool, electric scooters to go up and down the sidewalk on the beach.
No complaints from their department.








And I just love this picture! This is how I see her eyes when I look at them.
 She is getting more beautiful by the second!!
And hello eyelashes! They actually touch her eyebrows! She def didn't get those from me! Lucky girl!

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…

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!
