Nusery Update

I'm sure by now everyone has heard about the Boston Marathon attack. I wish I could say that I can't believe it, but sadly I can. This world looks scarier everyday. I am prayerful of those affected and prayerful for our world as a whole. We desperately need Jesus.
I am so thankful for this sweet Baby Broome and hopeful that Andy and I can show her Jesus love to take into this world as she grows older.
Some updates on the nursery:
The nursery is really coming along. I am so proud of Andy's craftsman skills. He did a great job on the board and batten and the nights and nights of painting! The high gloss white took many, many coats, but alas it is finished.
I really wasn't sure if I wanted to keep the closet doors. I thought we might be able to get creative with the extra space, but have decided to stick with the closets.
We still have to put knobs back on doors and covers on the outlets.
Aside from that, the nursery is ready for furniture and d├ęcor! Of course, I am still trying to figure out exactly what I want it to look like.. I may never decide!
My aunt sent me a package a few weeks back with this baby blanket in it. I will really cherish this because my mom made it! She did the cross stitched bears and sewed it together with the help of my great grandmother many years ago. She made is as a gift for my Aunt's first little girl, Annie. It has hung on the wall in my cousin Annie and Mimi's nursery's. Mimi's nursery was in France, so this blanket has been an international piece! I adore it, and am trying to figure out how to incorporate it into my nursery plans.
The quilt colors we're planned for a neutral yellow nursery. My aunt and uncle didn't find out what Annie or Mimi would be until they we're born. I am so thankful for a hand made piece by my own mom. I knew she could sew a mean bubble jumper and make pretty hair bows, but this quilt took some time and talent.
That's all for now friends! I'll be back eventually with bump pictures!
