The Boys Birthday

With all the time that I was spending going back and forth to Orlando and taking care of Daddy I had no time to plan a birthday party, presents NOTHING!

The boys took care of me when I was falling to pieces when Daddy wasn't doing well.  They would literally pick me off the floor together and help me walk when I couldn't find the strength to get up.
Of course John and Amalia were there too, but John had to take care of Amalia while these sweet, special, selfless boys did everything they could for me.

John and I decided that since they deserve the world and have been incredibly understanding when I told them I had absolutely nothing planned, we booked a family trip to Jamaica!!

The day Mummy came to Atlanta for their birthday Kaiden asks, "Can Richard spend the night?"  Well it is the least I could do on their birthday weekend, right? So now Ethan needs a friend to stay over.  Then I throw all the cards in the air and say, "Okay that's it.  I am inviting all your friends, all the boys can stay the night and Mummy you watch the kids we have 2 hours till a party!!"  So John and I run out get a cake, order pizza and put together a poster board for the big surprise.  Their ENTIRE party was a Jamaican theme, the party was for the big reveal of their main gift.

We had the kids and their friends take photos with a Jamaican back drop and figures with dread locks.

At the very end it was the boys to take a photo together and we stuck a sign on it saying, "we are going to Jamaica!"

So all their friends saw it while they thought they were just taking a picture and their friends read it to them.  They were so excited!!!!

We re-watched all our past vacations since and are looking forward to going.

I then of course had time to do some shopping and got them gifts anyway so they got the trip, the party AND the presents!

We couldn't dream up more deserving kids I love you boys with all my heart.

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.
