1 Year Anniversary

This past year has been amazing, everything we ever dreamed of, and our Anniversary celebration ended our 1st year together on the same magical note it began on.

John planned a surprise anniversary for me.
 Well, not a surprise since I knew there was a plan, let's call it a "blind" anniversary since I knew something was being planned but I didn't know what it was.

First he started by flying my sister out to baby sit the kids, then whisked me away to Atlanta, yes, Atlanta.
Maybe not the most romantic place... unless of course he has planned a private dinner at our wedding venue to recreate our wedding!!
I have talked non stop about our wedding day for the past year saying I wish the day lasted for ever so he took the opportunity to take me back and recreate it.

He got the same lady to make the same flavored cake, a delicious dinner and a a photographer to capture every moment.

I was even able to get my swarovski crystal head piece from Mummy to wear.

We danced to our 1st dance song, he re-read his vows, I wrote something new, and it was amazing!

For almost 4 years now we have talked about how amazing our 1st kiss was and I have had this vision of it in my mind for so long so I thought the perfect gift was to have an artist re-create it for me, and luckily he loved it, even more than I expected him to.

He got me the  most delicate, beautiful very "Becca" ring.  I keep telling him it makes me feel like a perfect present.  I love it!

Then, yes, there is more!  We stayed at Chateau Elan where we stayed our wedding night.  Talk about a flashback day!

As one of my friends pointed out, every day in my life with John is romantic, but this day was amazing.  It was like our wedding all over again!
I will never forget this anniversary, good luck topping it next year John!! lol (I'm sure you will find a way.)

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
