Is the weekend over ?!?

Goodness, what a weekend.... it was a whirlwind. On a whim Sat we decided to work on Bronwyn's room instead of starting on the bathroom demo. The day started with cleaning out the desk and misc stuff in what use to be the "office." It felt good to trash the desk that was barely held together, it did its job for the last 8 years. After the room was cleared Tom started to get the walls ready to paint. I realized he had been quiet for about 30min so I ventured in to see what he was up to....and he was painting...that sneaky guy. That room has always bothered me since we hadn't touched it, so was refreshing to see it get some lovin'. After hours of work I passed out on the big brown chair (in the middle of the room), while Tom painted away.... he should've gotten a picture of that! Ha ha. The second coat of paint was on by midnight and we headed off to bed. Of course the first thing we did Sun morning was run upstairs to see the room.

After church on Sunday, Tom steamed clean the carpet and started to paint the trim throughout the room. By the early evening we were setting up all the refinished furniture, crib and fun!! There is still lots of work to be done on making her room cozy, but we did FINISH it ;-) As Tom said "Check if off the list" as his hand outlined a checkmark above our heads.

Before and after shot of her room.... still missing the crib mattress and of course coziness...

While Tom was finishing up the room on Sunday, I went to our church baptisms at Falls Lake. What a joy to witness so many of our kids, students and adults make their decision known... think there were 70 folks in total. It was a blessing that four 8th grade girls were baptised and can't wait to see what the Lord has in store for them in the coming year.

Now onto Monday..... more fun coming up next weekend ;-)

Love the nursery! It looks so cute and inviting for Winnie's arrival. I'm sure she'll give her nod of approval as well:).
