Meet The Crew

I have been hanging our with these wonderful people that live by me.
We are all in different buildings but we meet for dinner on the weekends.
We also hang out during the week sometimes.

Denise, she is Amalia's replacement Grandma since Mummy is so far away.
She misses her Grandson so it works for them both.  She is extremely sweet and from New York.

Then there is Donna, Tiffany's Mom, from England.  And her husband Stewart who is A LOT like my Daddy.  I did some investigation and they are both Tauruses and in the Chinese Zodiac they are oxes! Go figure!!

 The cool part is we meet at restaurants in our back yard and the kids get along so well and run around playing on the beach and at the playground with lots of other kids while we get to hang out without ever really leaving home.

Right now there is a serious competition between Denise and Donna for Amalias love.  This came about because Amalia has been so attached to me and they were determined to get to hold her.   Looks like Donna is in the lead!
The difference between friends back home and friends here is huge.
And it's simple and makes sense.
None of us have family here, we ARE each others family.
I am so happy I found them.

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!
