~Happy Mothers Day~

Happy Mothers Day to all you wonderful women out there and to those who are soon-to-be mums!
I hope you all had a great day!

:) Saturday was my birthday! Nathan and i spent 8:40-3:30 in our last birthing class! I know doesnt sound like the best way to spend your birthday BUT i absolutely enjoyed my day! We were in a small group from the beginning and we all clicked pretty well :) Even though the other 3 couples were alot younger then us and were soon to be FIRST time parents we offered alot of insight and words of advice! This felt like a first time pregnancy for us anyway as it seems having a child here is totally different compared to the states! AND well it HAS been 8 years lol! We can now say that we feel confident, relaxed and alot calmer about the birth plan we have chosen! The information and knowledge we gained from these birthing classes has just put so many fears and concerns completely out of our minds! We feel confident in our birth plan and learned new techniques which we are hoping we will be able to use! The fact that the midwives do NOT believe in laying down or being on a bed in general to deliver your baby is just amazing! You walk in with your birth plan you hand it to the midwife and nurses and they follow it best to their ability! One of the requests we have asked is to keep Aj connected to the placenta for a few hours after birth. We have also requested full skin to skin contact between Aj myself and hubby right after birth :) Anyway enough about that for now! On to the rest of my birthday! When we finaly got home from birthing class my cousin and her husband were droppin of Loche from her sons birthday party :) after they left my brother and his fiance showed up to wish me a happy birthday and drop off a card :) was nice to see them both :) After they left hubster n son took me out to dinner :) we enjoyed gourmet pizza at a restaurant called GPK some of the best pizza i have ever had! We had baught tickets to see Thor but come time after dinner this pregnant mama couldnt barely keep her eyes open :) so we got a refund on our tickets and headed home! Came home and curled up n went to bed! I cant take long days anymore lol! My boys spoiled me with some new furr high calf ugh boots which i LOVE a new cd and a docking station for my ipod touch :) My mum and Dad got me a gorgeous bracelet! Check out the pictures below! Loche also made me for mothers day a really cute "kissy lips" ceramic fish :) its adorable! For Mothers Day i spent the day relaxing and just taking it easy! We didnt do to much which was a good thing! In the afternoon we went with my mum to go see my grand mother for mothers day while mum was visiting, hubby and i ran to the store and baught a feast of meat and salad makings for a bbq dinner! We picked up the old ducks *snicker* and headed home! Nathan cranked up the grill and i made up foil packs of potatoes onion garlic S&P and a lil seasoning salt! We had Kanga Bangas (yes kangaroo sausages!) Kangaroo burgers, Beef sausages, Steaks and Peri Peri Chicken steaks! YUMO i preped n made up a HUGE tossed salad with all sorts of goodies in it and right b4 we all sat down to dig in i threw some multi grain rolls in the oven! We had a great dinner we sat and ate and talked and finished off the meal with Apple crumble and vanilla icecream!
Most definitely a wonderful way to spend a mothers day! Did i mention my boys got me new earrings too?? :)
