Our Recent Happenings

A few weeks ago, our computer decided that it wasn't going to work anymore. Because of that, Andrew and I decided to get a new one. We finally got it ordered and it arrived last Friday. It has been so nice to have a computer again.

I have been keeping myself busy the past couple of weeks getting a bunch of my sewing projects done. I have finished the baby bedding (quilt, bumper, crib skirt, diaper hanger, mobile, curtains and wall hangings), made a couple of blankets, etc. I love how everything is turning out and I hope to have the room painted, Deker out of the crib and everything put together in a few weeks. I am excited to see it all put together.

One project that I got done this past weekend was to recover the bouncy seat. When Andrew and I sat down to look at it and decide how to go about it, we decided to make a slip cover for it. So, on Sunday we took bouncy seat from this:
To This:
I really love how it turned out. With all the sewing that I have been doing lately, I am very grateful that my Mom tought me how to sew when I was younger.
The other big news at our house was last weekend, we purchased a swing set for our back yard. Andrew, with the help of our friend Dan, and despite the help/hinderance of Keagan & Deker they got it all put up on Monday. Of course, the first think Keagan wanted to do this morning was go outside and play on it.

Dan had a lot of fun putting the swing together. I'm glad the boys are enjoying it so much.

Can't wait to see the room finished--Bauer is going to have the most adorable boys room ever!
