This Is Easy

Being so far away from my friends and family for the holidays is kinda sad, but it's still easy to come up with many things to be thankful for!

Starting with, of course John, Kaiden, Ethan and Amalia.
And of course Mummy, Daddy and Binx, my sister.
Whose birthday is today by the way, Happy Birthday Binx!
I am Thankful for opportunities.
For life, love, happiness.
I am very happy for warmth, I HATE the cold. Every time I get homesick I remind myself it's cold and then I am over it.
Thankful I am doing exactly what I love, taking care of my family.  
Thankful that I have my pre-baby body back, thought it would never happen when I had a huge belly.
I am thankful for new people and new experiences.  The boring life never was for me. This adventure is right down my alley.
Thankful for the people I am meeting and friends that I am making.  
Thankful for my "expat family" who we will be spending Thanksgiving with tomorrow.
Thankful that my children are happy.  

I have truly had the most amazing year that anyone could ever have.
Perfect wedding, to the perfect man, with all my best friends and family.
Perfect pregnancy, gave birth to a perfect baby.
My boys are making me prouder and prouder as each day goes by.
I am closer to my parents than I have ever been (and we've been pretty close), they are just so sweet and supportive and always make the effort to talk to me at all crazy hours.
I live in Dubai. I am still like ????? 
Wow.  Amazing.

All my dreams have come true. I am Thankful for that, and everyone that has been a part of it.
I love you all.
I'm going to stop here because I could go on and on.

But really, (okay, one more) I am thankful that I have the ability to always be grateful and be aware of how lucky I am for the wonderful people and opportunities in my life.
If you read my blog I think it's pretty obvious that I am always thankful, every moment of every day for  my life and the people in it.
Thank you all for being a part of our life.

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!
