Blast From The Past

I know all my friends remember this, Archie comics!
I remember the many hours I logged reading this at home, on the beach, laying out at the pool, in trees, with friends, with family, Archie was a big part of my childhood.

I would also sit down and practice drawing the characters over and over again.

Now look who is reading them! Kaiden.  He loves it.  Now I get to read Archie comics with my son.

How do they grow so fast?

When did this happen?

This is the weirdest stage so far for me with the kids.

On one side Kaiden is a little kid and on the other hand he is turning into a teenager.

It is fun doing the things that I used to love with him, I am glad they still sell these comics and I am so happy he likes them too.

I am still in disbelief about how big he is.  He brought jeans to me the other day and said, "Mummy, did you buy me new jeans?"  I said, "no".
I looked at them and they were mine!  We wear the same size socks, I could fit his t-shirts since he was 6, now he is almost 9.
I am so happy I have spent every moment possible with him, and my other children.
I have zero regrets.
I love who they are and who they are becoming.
They are independent, caring, mature, fun, loving, positive,s sweet and happy children.

Since he was born I have been thinking, "One day he will move out".
With that in mind always I try to prepare them the best I can for that moment, and spend as much time possible with them.
I want to continue to have no regrets and feel secure when the day comes that they are on their own.

All these thoughts brought on by an Archie comic!

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!
