New Years: Palm Perspective

As amazing as 2012 was, bring on 2013!
And of course we were exra excited about celebrating it here in Dubai, which is one of the top 4 places to be for the New Year along with New York, London and Australia.
New Years Day we decided to nap and have the kids nap since we were all celebrating together, and because John has really been wanting to do this, we napped on the beach.
We also spent the day on the beach.


 Met all our friends at the beach club, the kids met all their friends att he beach club as well but stayed on the beach most of the night.
It is so fun when you are having a great time with your friends dancing and laughing and you look down on the beach and your kids are doing the exact same thing!
We reserved a bed on the beach to watch the firework display, spectacular!
What a way to start the New Year!







Here you can see the Burj Al Arab, behind it is the Burj Khalifa so we got fireworks from both, and to the left of us is Atlantis (no pics of that though).

So curious about this year.  I have started a project, a HUGE project.
One that I have known for at least 10 years was destined for me, but now I know it is time.  
Maybe I will be able to share it with the world before 2014, but It'll take a lot of time and work.
Thank you to my friends and family that are supporting me and encouraging me.
Mostly you, Mummy and John. =)
Wish me luck!

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!
N…
