Labor Day Weekend

We went to the lake over Labor Day weekend, I think it'll be our last day at the lake for the year.
If you know me any at all you know I'm getting all decorations and plans as I gear up for one of my favorite times of year, fall.

I have found myself recently taking a few photos and then putting away my camera and enjoying the day, this time I missed capturing some very epic  moments, many of which I probably wouldn't have posted any way, but let's just say a lot of people were having a lot of fun and I just watched and laughed so hard!

My kids woke up very sore today from all their activities, canoeing, jet skiing, tubing and much more.  They could hardly move but still managed to drag themselves to church, which was also fun thanks to Amalia.  She kept telling them, "Close eyes boys!" And, "Shhh!" and starts telling other peoples kids the same thing!
Who made her prayer police?! It's just so funny and so cute.  What another great weekend for the Benham Family, our never ending Happily Ever After.

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…

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!

Settling Into Spring

Georgia has been absolutely beautiful for spring so far.
I love almost aspects.
The blue skies, the greenery, the flowers, being outside, having our waterfall back on, nights outside and so much more.
I noticed today that my seeds are starting to sprout in our garden and that makes me incredibly excited and proud. I even love the rain and the storms, every thing is so cozy and not cold!

And best of all, having friends and family to enjoy it with.

The parts we could do without is the pollen and i85 going up on flames.
