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…

Star Wars Birthday Party

It's that time of year for the boys double birthday party!!
Since I... I mean they are so into star wars that was the obvious choice of a party theme.

It was so cute at the end of the party after the boys opened all their gifts and John says, "Well, what did Mummy and I get you?"  They both shrugged.  I said, "We got you this beautiful party, and that is your gift."
They both hugged us and said thank you without even complaining that we didn't buy them anything, such gracious boys!
Then John brought out their bikes and they went crazy!! It was the cutest thing.

Happy Birthday to our wonderful boys, Happy 7th and 9th Birthday Ethan and Kaiden!

Welcoming Spring

Going from living in Jamaica where Spring is Sun and sand, to Georgia where spring is pollen, to Dubai where it is sun and sand to Illinois.
Let's just say I was not expecting a massive snow storm!
I have never experienced snow like this in my life!
Amazing what a difference 9am to noon can make!
This is how they do spring here it seems!

We had so much fun!
Lots of games with the kids, just dance 3, wii golf etc.

Of course John took the boys out to make a snowman and snowball fights and even gave them a big job to make a little money.
I don't know how they handle the cold so well, it truly amazes me how long they can stay out there and be completely okay.
I of course stayed inside, I do not like the cold, not one bit.  I do enjoy watching the snow from the windows though, it is so beautiful.
I even fell asleep on the carpet in front of the fireplace!

We did have a small mishap.  Kaiden decided he wanted to warm up his pillow pet and it melted on the glass on the fireplace!
