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…

We Are Expecting!!!

John, myself and the boys are excited to announce that we are going to have a new addition to the family!!!!!  Excited, overjoyed, elated are a few of the words to describe how we all feel right now.
After having Ethan I truly thought I was never going to have another baby, not because I did not want one (because I did) but because, let's just say circumstances were less than ideal at the time.
John definitely did not expect to ever be...expecting... again either! But I guess we both never expected to find each other. =) This is something we have talked about since day 1, and the time is finally here and now!
First things first... Need that cocoa butter to keep everything in check!!
Next, baby naming, it takes me forever to find a name I like, so the earlier start we get, the better!!

I have lost 2 pounds but my tummy is obviously growing!!

I put on 40pounds each pregnancy, believe it or not, so I'm ready!

Thanx to Mummy and Daddy for good, genes, I always pop right back to …

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!
