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…

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

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
