Ready, Set...

I have spent the majority of the past two days purging, organizing, running errands and getting everything in order in our ministry and personal accounts to get ready for baby time.  Thanks to Josh for letting me lock myself in our bedroom to sprawl out the entire 2011 tax year and to Sweetie Cherry who watched the kids so I could run a few quick errands, that wouldn't have been so quick with 4 littles tagging along!

As of today we are down to single digits.  Ladies and gentlemen, my due date is on February 9th.  That is 9 days ya'll!!!!!

I got all of our year-end contributions in the mail, closed out 2011 and got our own personal taxes as done as I could (I still need a couple of statements to come in the mail).

We had some sweet friends gift us our car seat and stroller set and they are both here and ready to tote a sweet little baby around in.  (What crazy woman gives away ALL her baby items the month before conception anyway?!)  We also had a shower given to us at our church.  I felt so silly having to have a shower for baby #5 when I haven't had one since Areyna was born, but we sure appreciated all the blessings people poured on our family for these 2 newest additions!

I also put the finishing touches on the baby room, er... closet, yesterday:) 

Who says you need a separate room for a baby?  We cleared out our master bedroom closet and rearranged a few things in the house to make room for #5. 

It is just enough room for a small tall-standing dresser,

pack-n-play with built-in changing table and

decorative baskets above,

with a small basket of toys. 

What else does a baby need?:)

So, bring on the baby (P-L-E-A-S-E)!  We're as ready as we're gonna be.

Beautiful nursery! Can't wait to meet #5. God bless you in the home stretch!

What a cute nursery and he/she will be close to you, yet in his/her own space. Is there anything else that you would absolutely love to have. I would like to get something for the new baby. Just let me know. Maybe just a gift card from somewhere.

Aw...I love it! I think closets are actually easier to "decorate" than whole rooms =)

So,so cute! Who'd have thunk it? A closet all decked out and with plenty of room!

I love the letters on the wall!
