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…

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!
