I have crafty friends and family

With one week left until our little mathlete's due date, I have been given a couple baby showers and I am amazed at the talent that surrounds me. Here are some pictures of the beautiful handmade gifts that await baby boy.

Beautiful quilt from Steve's mother

Another quilt from Steve's mother. This one shows off her amazing embroidery work.

Sarah knitted this blanket for our little boy

These were made by my friend's daughter. She was so excited about the shower she wore her outfit to bed the night before to make sure she got it right.

Annie knitted me a stuffed penguin and included books about penguins.

Gwen knitted some warm and fuzzy hats for baby's little head.

Holly designed invitations for the shower she gave me and then embroidered the bum of a
couple onesies with the same bird. So cute!

My office took time out this morning to watch/listen to President Obama's inauguration. It was amazing. The inauguration was so inspiring and motivating to me that I am left speechless. I was motivated by Obama's speech to work hard and do my part to make the world a better place. I am glad that he challenged us as Americans to do our part to rebuild our economy. It's about time that we had a President who askes more us than to go shopping.

It was inspiring to see the millions of people gathered in Washington, DC waving American flags, peacefully standing together. It was a great day for our country.

Nursery/Office is nearly finished

This weekend, Steve and I spent the majority of our time fixing up the second bedroom for the baby and for Steve's sister who will be staying with us (it might make it more difficult to fix up the nursery once she is here). Here are a few pictures of our progress. Keep in mind, the rocking chair has not come yet, but we did clear a space for it.

Here is the crib integrated with the office

Steve made this bench and cover.

We love this sheep mobile

This is the rocking chair that will be placed in the nursery/office.
