How It Goes

Being a Mom is so much fun, it is all I had ever wanted to be my whole life.
I think I'm pretty good at it, but it definitely has it's challenges.

I have been so frustrated recently at the amount of forms, papers, instructions, events and HOME WORK that the boys bring home.

I always think, am I supposed to be teaching them?  Why am I even sending them to school when I feel like I am doing quite a bit of the work?

I cook every weekday, I have the baby, I am constantly cleaning up after them then so much school work!
For about 5 years I have watched an hour of  movie every night with the boys before bed.  It is our tradition now.
They love it.  I love it.  7-8 no one calls or texts, that's THEIR time.  If we miss movie night they get so disappointed they cry, we can't have that.
So everything needs to be cooked, cleaned, tidied, bathed, home worked all by 7pm!

Any way, point being I try to have fun with them, spend time with them, cook for them, keep the house clean, juggle a baby, jump through hoops, break up arguments, where does all this school work fit in?

I always wonder how working moms do it.  If I got home at 6 and had to do all that work I would probably go crazy! By time you cook its home work bath and bed where do you find time to spend with the kids and keep your sanity?

I really love spending time with them and I am making an extreme effort to get this home work done daily.  And keep up with all the other things I do daily.

I am really enjoying the children, as always, but it's so weird seeing Kaiden and Ethan run by playing then seeing Amalia run by laughing behind them.
It is so adorable how much they love each other.  They make me feel like all my hard work is really paying off.

Since I have gotten my new phone I haven't been using my camera much so I forced myself to take it out one day.
Amalia is growing more beautiful daily and the best part is she is more beautiful on the inside.
She is so adored and I am trying to get the boys to stop spoiling her.
Maybe if I show Ethan the picture of her torturing his puppies while he is at school he will stop! lol.

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!
