Very Valentine

I always feel bad for John this time of year.
My birthday then Valentines Day 3 days later.
Somehow every year he makes them both special, I think this year was the best though.  (Except that one time when we went to Jamaica on Valentines Day)

The moment I woke up he says, "Happy Velentines Day, will you be mine?"
I had the biggest smile on my face.  He is always so romantic. 
I walk out into the living room and there are roses, heart biscuits, a gift and heart shaped candles... lit... at 8 in the morning.
How does he do this without me knowing?

The day only got better and better.  

Since I cook every night it was time for a break.
Dubai has the worst beef EVER so I haven't had a good steak in a while and he knew I have been craving it so he took me to Ruth's Chris Steakhouse. 
I haven't been there in so long, it felt like we were back in the US again.

I also did my part by getting him and the kids some valentine gifts and decorated the house to set the stage for whatever romantic things he  had planned.  I hate that I have to take it down, so pretty!

Thank you to my romantic hubby for another perfect day.
 Thank you for showing me how much you love me not just on Valentines Day, but every day.

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!
