He's Amazing

Yesterday I was a little sad when Ethan came home and told me that the kids at school don't believe in "the force" and that they say mean things and he said he thought they didn't like him anymore because he won't agree with them.

You see, we have been using "the force" with him to keep him from complaining, to show that if he is happy and positive "the force" will give him more reasons to be happy and positive etc.
The force has also made him become smarter in school!
So I am proud of him for standing his ground, but my heart broke for people making him feel different for believing in it.

So today, as we do from time to time, John and I went to have lunch with him at school.  We were talking to him and John said, "So which one of these boys don't believe in the force?"
I saw where this was going!
We explained to the boys that the reason they cannot use the force is because they are not being taught, they needed to be taught by a jedi, and Ethan is a padawan learner that's why he can't move things yet.
John then started doing magic tricks and had the ENTIRE class in awe!  We have made believers of these little 1st graders!

That teaches them to mess with our kid! Yesterday he was the lowest on the totem pole today he is on the top.  He doesn't care, he believes in what he believes and stands by it, but as a  mother you don't ever want other kids to treat your kid as though they are different.

See, this is why I love John.  Not only this reason, but what mother cannot adore a man that loves her, and her children to pieces?  I am so happy I have him, I am so happy the kids have him.  Every child deserves a father like him.

Love you John.  And thank you for being so amazing.

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 …

Mr. and Mrs. John Benham!!!

This is the moment we have both been waiting for for years!
It was perfection.
Nothing short of magical.

We had quite a bit of time after getting ready, there were so many emotions, so happy I laughed, so happy I cried.

I love these photos and am so happy that every moment was captured.  Can't wait to see the professional ones!

                                Waiting for the go ahead
                                        It's time!!
                             Everyone ready to come down

                                                              Mummy 1st

With this ring...
You may kiss your bride!

Ethan is a true romantic.  Whenever we watch movies with happy couples he always says that they are me and John.  For years he has been talking about us getting married. After the ceremony when we came in he was crying.   He said he tried to hold it in as long as possible...                                            Whispering sweet nothings
