Farewell To My Dear Grandpa, Miami Trip

We took a road trip to Miami for My lovely Grandpa Leslie's funeral.
I am so happy that we were able to visit with him in February before he passed, I love him so much.  He was extremely intelligent, had a great sense of humor and always fun to be around.

Our first stop, However, was Orlando where I got to see Daddy and Aunty Sally.  Aunty Sally has the sweetest heart and cutest laugh, I miss spending time with her, and was so happy for her to meet Amalia and get to know the boys better.  (Thanks for giving my kids unlimited amounts of ice cream and cookies!)


I found out recently that a great friend of my "ex family" went to the same church Grandpa did, and visited him frequently in the nursing home.  Himself and his wife are such beautiful people and my family and I appreciate that they were there for him to the end.  I was so happy to reconnect with Uncle David and Aunt Bev!!

It was also great to see all the rest of my family again, especially you Kevin, you are just the best!  Not just family, but a few of my best friends from boarding school, and I got to spend time with their kids.  I was also able to see Kaiden's God Mother, and convince her to bring the kids to Disney for me, you're amazing Candice! I miss you lots.  May I add that Aunty Susan made me gain 4lbs, and I appreciated it, amazing food and drinks.  And Mummy, It's almost like you never left! The kids had a great time with you at the kiddie table spending time with them.  Uncle Anthony, so pleased I finally impressed you! lol!!

Amalia is still asking about my Skye baby, my friends precious daughter.
Unfortunately no pics with Naja because Kaiden had an accident and we had to leave urgently, but there will be a next time!

I love you all!!

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
