A Georgia Snow Day

It was forecasted that we would have up to one inch of snow so the kids all came home early and played outside with their friends.

As time went by it kept snowing and snowing and snowing! Three and a half inches later the ENTIRE city was shut down.
Kids weren't coming home from school either stuck at school for the night or stuck in the school bus for many hours.

I was shocked, and disgusted to see how many people were making fun of what was happening in GA.  No, we weren't prepared, no one expected this.  Snow melted and froze, the roads were all ice.

People complaining about the stores closing when it is admirable that managers were being thoughtful about there employees.

People that have moved here from very cold regions say they are used to it but have NEVER seen anything like this.  When you say you can drive in the snow you mean on clear roads with snow plows if necessary and probably snow tires as well.

Even with everyones negativity it was so nice to see how our community stuck together ad took care of each other.  People inviting strangers to stay in their homes,  people walking out to the roads bringing people food, businesses opening their doors and allowing people to sleep there.  Everyone praying for their family, friends, neighbours an anyone that may have been in an unsafe situation.  This is what community and simple humanity is about.  I hope that all of you that made jokes about GA are ashamed of yourselves.

Anyway, we were lucky enough to enjoy the day together.

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!
