Missing Him

John is out of town for a few days.
I guess I thought it would be way worse but the kids keep me so busy that the days go by so quickly and I don't have much time to think about it.
And then I have been spending time with friends which helps as well.
Everything goes well until dinner is cooked and ate, kids are calm, movie time.
It gets quiet and calm and that's when I really start missing him.  
I get to snuggle with all all the kids, they are such good company.

No matter how much I love my kids, and I love them A LOT, it's just not the same as having a partner.
I avoid my bedroom because it seems so empty and lonely at night without him.
Correction, it IS so lonely without him, and I am in no way a needy person, but it's different when there is someone I really want to spend my time with.

Can't imagine myself going to bed alone... so I don't!
All the kids pile in with me!  
Their company and snuggles help so much, but I can't wait to have him back!
Life just isn't the same without him.
Miss you John Benham!

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.
