Ideals for baby room

you guys are all so talented and have so many great ideals so I'm going to ask you for ideals for my daughters new baby's room. If its a girl they are thinking of using purple and brown and paint stripes on the walls and glaze it. We are open to decor suggestions and bedding colors if it's a boy the color will be a medium green and brown so any suggestions for wall decor or bedding and rugs on a budget....Barb

I'm Tired!

This week I have felt tired and stressed from everything thats going on with my mom's health. After work today I came home and did a little yard work but my heart just wasn't into it, my husband said he wants my cheerful, laughing at his silly jokes back. I have not slept well and have been trying to remember things I need to do if she gets critically ill fast.I know that God will guide me through all of this and give me strength to keep everyone else strong....Barb

My future pilot!

Last week Jace and I went to visit my brother at work, he works at the Hawker Beechcraft building and Jace got to "fly" an airplane. He loves anything to do with airplanes so he was in heaven! In other news my mom went home from the hospital and seems to be doing well, thanks for all your kind thoughts and prayers....Barb

Quick Update!

If I am not posting much lately it because my mom is having some major health issues ,she had a kidney transplant 27 years ago and and the past year has been slowly losing function and issues from the anti rejection meds.She fell last night in her bedroom and and called me and I took her to the ER and they admitted her to the hospital. She had to have quite a few sutures in her leg and problems with it not wanting to stop bleeding and needed some major antibiotics. I am praying that I can continue to stay strong as we deal with not knowing what the future holds and would appreciate your prayers for my family. I know many of you are now dealing with health issues with your parents also and I pray for you also....Barb

A funny hour!

Jace had his first tball practice this afternoon and we went to watch, it's so funny watching 4 years olds and trying to keep their attention for an hour. He did good for about 45 minutes and then he needed to go to the bathroom and afterwards Mommy and Jonathan were getting the info for his uniform and I was sitting with him and was telling him that he would be wearing a uniform and be part of the team and they would play against other teams he looked at me and said we are going to lose! After laughing I told him its all for fun....Barb

This and That

Last night we had some bad weather in Arkansas with storms and tornados sirens going off, an area close by had some damage to about 30 homes. Rachel went for her OB appointment and has gained 1 pound and they heard the baby's heartbeat for the first time(exciting). The picture of Rachel and Jace was taken by her sunday, the 2nd pic is of Lauren at the photo studio with the bunnies they are using for easter pics....Barb

This afternoon after I came home from work I had a little time to start cleaning out flowerbeds around my home.We had a beautiful day of sunshine and warm weather so it was wonderful to be outdoors for some fresh air. We had dinner with the kids last night ( I know their grown but I still call them kids) Rachel is having morning sickness off and on all day and with her being so small starting to show, she signed Jace up to play T-Ball this spring so he is excited about that. Lauren and her future room-mate will be looking for an apartment soon so hopefully they can find something nice in their budget,have a blessed week-end....Barb
