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…

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!
