Prepping for Baby

We are all getting very excited about baby. I get at least 3 notes weekly from Jay that involve "baby sister", or "baby Jellybean" in some way:
I had a baby shower at church a few weeks ago which was awesome! They had a "sprinkle" theme, and the wording on the invitation was so cute! They also paired up and MADE headbands for baby...the results are pictured.
The day of the shower was beautiful! Andy had a playdate in the morning, so I went to see if I could find a spring-y outfit that fit. I got the whole thing at Ross for $22.
Andy modeled a few of the headbands while I was putting them away:
The boys have been getting into plenty of trouble, but also enjoy taking pictures on a camera I let them play with:
Grandma came over to help get ready for baby one day over spring break, and the boys took more pictures:
Last weekend we had a snowstorm, so I worked on the nursery: The Lego table will move downstairs, and we have a few more things to do...but it looks pretty great!
A few more pictures:

Basement Master Finish

We were so fortunate to finish the master "suite" in the basement this winter. It turned out so nice, and we can't wait to have more people visit and stay in our basement bedroom. John and I will eventually (maybe like in 4 or 5 years) move downstairs, but for now...it is for our guests! Back when we first started...the boys played hockey on the cement and helped us measure things.
Now it is finished and it looks great! The bathroom (oversized tub with fancy tile work).
The closet (I didn't take very many pictures of this yet...and it is a lot more organized already).
The bedroom: (I do have curtains up, but I put them up after the pictures)
The boys have already had a dodge ball fight in the bedroom with all the doors closed. Less stuff to break than in their rooms:) So...stop on by and stay in our comfy King Size guest bed. Not saying the upstairs will be perfectly clean, but that one little area will be!
