14 weeks to get it all done!

I have 14 weeks to get the baby's room put together. Actually I have less than that since we are expecting out of town company. I would like to get the room together before that. I have to move(or rather Bjorn has to move) furniture around and I need to make the window treatments still. It is the last room in the house that hasn't been recovered since we moved here two years ago. I have panels up to block the view from the street, but they are the ones that were here when we moved in and I have never liked them. I would like to do something that will tie in the double bed and bedding that will remain in the room, with the crib and the airplane theme I have going on. I hope to get the bed and crib moved, the windows done, the airplanes hung from the ceiling, the pictures framed and hung and maybe even find a rug to go on the floor. It's coming together however. As you can tell I've had some time to think about what I wanted this room to look like. The biggest hurdle is keeping the bed in the room. But for all you out of townees we are keeping it up for you so you have a nice place to stay. We want everyone to come and visit! Here are a few things that are going in the room. I'll try and get it all done and show you a finished picture. Maybe by next week if I'm lucky and can rope Bjorn into helping me with a few large items.

Brooke,
His room is going to be so cute. I saw on my phone logs that you tried to call but my phones been out. When I get it back up I'll call you back. Love the names!

Cute crib. Everything looks like Martha Stewart made it. Good job. It's nice to have something to do, you must be in that nesting stage. Weird bursts of energy...ahhh the fun.

Good for you man. I haven't even opened my newborn boxes and sorted out what I need for this girl. I need to do it. I"ve only got 10 weeks left as well. But I need to get Dru up there and get all the 0-6 month boxes down for me and start there. Then we'll know what we need to buy. If I keep her inside she'll wear the same thing and Kristin gave me some stuff. But I need to get it sorted. Maybe on a Sunday when I can guarantee Dru's home all day. I"m sure Heavenly Father won't mind.

Verrrry cute decorating theme. It's great to have the time as well as the talent to create such a setting for someone who will be so well loved. Happy Labor Day to you, Cousin Karen

The benefits of having children a little later are being able to prepare so well...that and your amazing talent. I'm still trying to finish that dang baby quilt I signed up for! Maybe today...
