We are on a journey, sojourners on this earth. Let us share with you the highs and lows of our lives. Heaven is a sweeter place now that we have two beautiful granddaughters waiting there for us.

While we wait...

Well we are still waiting for baby, but while we wait, the time isn't wasted! We moved into their new house and have slept here the last two nights...not an easy feat when you have to find things like sheets and pillows that have been in storage for a couple of months.
And we have gotten lots of painting done! Everyone right down to the smallest little girl gets into the act!
 As you can see they take their work very seriously!
 Of course this means that mommy doesn't get any painting done....good thing Mimi is here to help!
The girls are so excited about their new room!
The laundry room is also finished(Asparagus Green for you Heather!). For all of you that take a laundry room for granted, this is Jody's first inside her house and she is so excited about that! Makes doing laundry soooooo much easier.
 Next we tackled Jody and Darin's bedroom...the paint in this room is really pretty but totally changes color depending on the time of day. It's got a beach feel to it which is very relaxing.
Yesterday I tackled the feature wall in the very large play room over the garage. It took forever to get the cutting done on this wall, and then at night Darin rolled it....but I was too tired to take a will have to wait for the final look for another day.
In between we are unpacking lots of boxes, buying groceries and this morning even doing laundry....and of course still waiting. Baby is doing well according to Jody's appointment this morning so here we are....while we wait.

I've been wondering.. but also thinking that this extra time must be nice for preparing the home. It's beautiful. So glad you can be there. Not too many wall wuold be painted if it were up to the girls. They are cute though.

I think Jody's going to have a boy!

Good to see you are busy while you wait - no one is twiddling their thumbs - and it makes the time go faster and is a lot more fun! Blessings!

It's so fun to see what's going on in the Miles'/Beck's life!!

I had the laundry on the main level once and loved it...much more convenient. It's great that you're able to help...will be less for them to do later. Waiting and praying.

Thanks for the updates - although you still have to give me the rest of the colours ;)

Looks like this baby can come soon ... the work is almost done!

Isn't God good to let you get all this done before baby arrives. Then you can sit down and enjoy baby when he/she gets here. :).
