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…

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…

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!
