Busy, Busy, Busy!!

We have been busy bees around our house lately so I haven't had much time for pictures or blogging. I've got a lot of energy right now so I'm trying to take advantage of it and get a lot accomplished. The guest room is all cleaned out now and is ready to be transformed into a nursery. We were able to sell the furniture (yippee!) and Keith and I combined closets since he had previously been using the guest rooms closet. It's the first time we've shared a closet since we've been married...pray for us...haha!! :-) I was pretty good about keeping and storing all of Ella's clothes and since the girls should be born just about the same time of the year, it will be perfect for handing down things. So I've been going through all of Ella's clothes and now have Anna's closet packed with pink things awaiting her arrival. Ella got her bedding for Christmas so I've picked out a paint color for her room (pale apple green). We're going to try and get that painting finished before her furniture arrives on the 31st. I ordered Anna's bedding, so once it arrives next week, we can pick our her paint color (I'm thinking a very pale, powdery pink) and get that taken care of as well. We're going to do the same in Anna's nursery as we did in Ella's and scrape the popcorn ceiling (yuck) and put up crown moulding. Still have a lot more to do! :-)


So anyways, if you made it through all of that then here are a couple of pictures to enjoy from the past few weeks:

When cleaning out one of the closets in our house, I came across this old office phone and gave it to Ella to play with. She loves it! She dragged it into the den and put it right in front of her chair so she could sit and talk on it. :-)

Audrey has that same little piggy bank and LOVES it. How is the potty training going? Audrey isn't very interested in that right now. oh well...

Yes, the piggy bank is very fun! :-) As for the potty training, I really haven't been trying much. We talk about it some, but my plan is to wait until about 22 months or so and then make a very concerted effort. My parents did a method called "potty training in a day" with me where it's pretty much your total focus for a couple of days so they pick it up pretty quickly. I might try to research that and give it a go. I'm a little apprehensive about the whole ordeal honestly! :-)
