Springtime in Bemidji

OK, if anyone knows what I did to tick off Jack Frost and/or Mother Nature, let me know so I can apologize. As many of you have heard, our area got between 20 and 24 inches of snow this past weekend (this pic is from just after the first wave, which was about 5-6 inches, so it's now more than double what you see). Oh well. It offered another chance to use the shovel this morning before work!

On the plus side, it offered a chance for Ray to FINISH PAINTING. Yup, all of the painting is done. All the touch-ups, flowers, etc., everything is complete. And the paint and supplies has been moved from the nursery. It's so nice. It really looks beautiful, so great. Even small details that I wouldn't have thought of, such as pained light-switch covers and such. It's so bright and warm inside (especially compared to the winter wonderland outside).

Also, we bought our mattress this weekend and got the bed all set up! It's so pretty. Matches the flowers perfectly.

Additionally, I got started on hanging and organizing all of Lola's clothes. (Yes, she has about three times as many as Ray has already -- and more shoes, but that's to be expected.)

So, things are finally starting to come together! It's so exciting, seriously. We just sat in her room late last night and talked about how thrilled we are about her impending arrival (and summertime).

Check back later this week -- we have our first childbirth class on Wednesday, so I will probably post something afterwards.

Merry Christmas,
- Bethany :)

It's just beautiful! Such an exciting just the wait. I remember waiting for Eric to be born and I kept going in the nursery and turning down the covers and just looking at it. Enjoy all the precious moments. The quilt arrived and it is absolutely gorgeous! Wish I was there to give you a mom
