open-house-011The nursery for Addy is taking shape. Dear painted the wall in three colors that will match the bedding for the crib. Our son painted the grey trim on the white crib. The mattress arrives soon. There will be an elephant decal to the left of the crib blowing pink bubbles over the crib on the brown part of the wall. Should be real cute.

2017-02-27-djs-babyroomIf you haven’t guessed already there is an elephant theme for the nursery. The little car used to be red and blue and Dan’s Dzeda built it for him for Dan’s first Christmas. All the grandsons got one that year. Dan and Jamie decided to use the nursery colors to repaint it. I like the teal hubcaps.

2017-02-26-open-house1While we’ve been here we were able to enjoy a Baby Shower/ House Warming party at their new home with about 45 friends and family. I’ll share some photos from the event later.

We are busy helpers over here and helping to get some projects done before Addy arrives. Today Dear and Dan put garage door openers up and installed a new toilet. They also put in a new outlet for charging devices. We hope to be able to drive over the pass tomorrow for home. It all depends on the weather and the restrictions posted. We don’t have 4 wheel drive or traction tires so we have to catch a good travel window. Hope all is well in your neck of the woods.

  1. It is such fun to prepare for a little one!! Addyson’s new room is darling and that cute theme should grow with her. I love all of the personal touches.

    Safe and happy travels to you as you make your way back over the mountains!

  2. Such an adorable nursery! I love the elephants and bright coloras. This is such an exciting time as you wait to welcome for your first grandchild.

  3. It’s such a lovely thing to have had the opportunity to help in the decoration of the nursery. I like the theme and colour scheme. The repainted wooden car is a lovely touch.

  4. That’s a decorator-award-winning nursery — calming, just enough color and I love the animal motif. This room will grow along with Addy (but not too quickly)!! Be careful out there on those mountain passes.

  5. The elephant theme is so cute! I love the painted dresser with all of the stuffies on it! So much fun to anticipate bringing a tiny baby home soon! I pray all goes well in these next days and weeks as you all wait.

  6. Absolutely adorable! I know a lot of work has gone into the nursery for Addy. I like the teal hubcaps, too. πŸ™‚
