mission accomplished

The baby quilt is all finished!
Washed and dried, all soft and wrinkly.

(the front)

I hope you guys don't mind, but I am going to go ahead
and send it to her before little Jack comes.
I have a couple things in her box that she needs before and right after he comes.

(the back)

And I would love for her to have his quilt,
to use if she needs it, for when he is born.
My favorite 1st pictures of Sadie~Rose are of her
wrapped up in or laying on
the beautiful quilt that Chelle made for her.
I have hopes of her doing the same.

I will send another little something to Aminta
to include in the big shower.
You guys don't mind, do you?

{finished product}

I finally have pictures of Jack's wee church vest. I had to rip the neck out about four times before I got it right, but it was definitely worth it. When I look at it, it reminds me of Chelle:) And when I thought about what kind of button to put on it, the only thought in my head was that it had to be red! So here is the finished product:

This is always so much fun:) I hope you all are having a blessed day!

Change of plans....

I got a call from Chelle this morning. She had an appointment with Tonie, the mid-wife, this morning. YAY! Tonie thinks that she is more then likely going to have this little Jack a bit early.
Honestly, I think this would thrill Chelle. She had Annabelle three weeks early as well. So it would not be a surprise. :)
And, she has been wishing that Jack would show up early for another reason. David's brother (lol, yes, our brother-in-law) is getting married on the 9th of May, and as you all know, Jack is due on the 7th. Plus the wedding is about 400 miles away from where they live. So this has made Chelle sad that they could be missing this.
Well, as a result, Chelle may be overwhelmed.... or maybe even in labor..... when I planned to head over. So this holding off is a good idea.
I will talk to Fairlight and we can try to plan for a different time. I am thinking that perhaps we could play it by ear.
Have everyone still send the gifts as early as possible, and when Jack arrives, then we can plan for two-three weeks after that.
If he comes early enough, they will be coming to Idaho for the wedding and I could just snatch her for a few hours over that week-end.
Fairlight, Katie or I can keep everyone posted!
Loves to you ladies, and thank you for being so flex able!

{Shower Ideas}

I was talking to Chelle today.......

And she seemed maybe a tad bit overwhelmed. I am wondering if perhaps we should hold off until little Jack comes.
Thinking that it might be a bit more enjoyable for her. Right now she has all of these other things on her mind. And she has had ALOT of company. You know two girls week-ends, and un-expected younger brothers and such.
I was wondering what the rest of you ladies thought?

Hi Ladies!
I have my goodies all done for Chelle and Sweet Jack. However, I have no idea when and where to send
I can't wait to see how this all comes together. Such fun!
