"A few of my favorite things"

I got to meet Becca and the kids this week!

What a treat!

This BEAUTIFUL quilt was made by my sis Becca for Anna Ruth. I adore it :). The colors, pattern, every bit of it. Don't worry-you'll be seeing a lot of this in the background behind sweet Anna once she gets here!

Becca gifted me with a few of her favorite things for little ones....including these two bath goodies !
and this very neat book.....I can't wait to read it to Anna Ruth!
(for those who are wondering...I am 38 weeks.....the Dr. says she thinks Anna will be a big baby..maybe around 8 pounds? Having a few contractions here and there..nothing to get too excited about yet)
a whole new meaning of "rain boot". :)

Also, a new meaning of going "out" to eat. This is where we dine, with plates balanced on the back deck. Someday we'll get a tall table and chairs, but for now this does just fine. This view never gets old.
My "movers" (Brett and Jack) moved our armoire into the great room last night! :) We are now using it as a china cabinet..
Banner I made...
I also made Anna Ruth's name to hang in her room...First I printed out the outline of big letters on the computer...then cut the letters out of posterboard.
Next, put spray adhesive on the posterboard letters....

and press the letters onto your material of choice!
Once the fabric is applied to the letters, cut around the letters again...then use fishing line and hot glue to connect the letters together on the back.
Last, glue ribbon, string, etc. to the ends of the banner and hang up!
