He's Been a BUSY boy!

David is the BEST! I'm very thankful to have married a man so handy - among other things! He's a great painter, and was very busy this weekend tackling two of the kids' rooms. We finally got the baby's room painted, and it's a beautiful blue - has sort of a gray undertone to it, I think. It's very soothing to me. It's made me so excited to really get ready for this baby to come!!!


I'll be spending a lot of time in that rocking chair again....I love that we've had all this stuff for all four of our kids. Same rocker, same crib, same bedding - it's very special. I love it just as much now as I did the first time around. You'll notice the clothes piled on top of the dresser - I JUST pulled them out. My sister mailed me some of her new baby's newborn stuff that he's already outgrown (they are SOOOO tiny)....and so I have them out to put away. I haven't even washed ANYTHING yet - although I did finally buy the baby detergent. I'm a bit behind....

And then David painted Callie's room!!! It's quite the opposite from the baby's calming, soothing room, isn't it? It's SO fun and cheery and bright isn't it - I totally love it!! I was very nervous when we bought the green, but I think it totally looks great...and just like Callie!

Not a great shot of the curtains, but it will give you an idea of that wall with them anyways...

Remember the orange/coral bathroom that David painted with his fat, wasp-stung hand? Well, this is the finished product!!! Isn't he the best? :)

All the rooms look great and I love callie's. I wish Joe loved to paint I would have so much fun changing things. Oh well!

Busy boy is right! We were painting Anderson's room and the color was supposed to be akin to Caleb's, but hmmmmm turned out more baby blue than the gray blue I planned.... What color did you use??

Callie's room turned out fantastic!! That was the only one I didn't get to see finished in person! David is definitely one handy guy!
