Well, we're ready for the holidays. Keith and I exchanged gifts and did stockings last night, as we will be celebrating Christmas with Keith's family this year. It will be nice to have some time off to relax and visit. I'm looking forward to sitting with my feet up and doing some reading, and Keith wants to play some golf with his Dad.
Our first baby shower is in one week, and is being hosted by Keith's sister and mom. We are now scheduled for 5, yes FIVE, baby showers and have an online shower going as well...see the link on the lefthand column! It's so wonderful that people want to help us celebrate the arrival of our Babygirl, especially since we are total newbies at this! We've checked out some baby books from the library that have come highly recommended by friends, and plan to do some reading in the coming weeks.
The nursery progress is at a standstill at the moment. Keith starting constructing the new crib, only to find out we were missing about 5 vital screws and bolts, as well as the set of casters! Major frustration on his part! He called the company, and they quickly sent us replacement parts...minus one important bolt. Grrr....another (less friendly, no doubt) call was made to the company, and the bolt is on it's way. Once that's done, I'll wash the new bedding and get the crib set up. I'm ordering red gingham curtains to hang up, and ordered some accessories this week to go along with the crib bedding. Right now, we don't have much to put in the nursery, but I suspect that will change after the baby showers!
We hope everyone has a very Merry Christmas, filled with friends and loved ones! May 2007 bring you much joy and happiness! Our wish is for peace in the world, and good health for our family near and far.
