Official Rolling Meadows residents...

I know it has been a while since I posted anything about the move, and thats probably because moving is SO darn exhausting! Kurt and I have been packing, unpacking, loading, unloading, rearranging, cleaning, etc etc etc all week!

Oscar and Lyla seem to be adjusting well, and getting used to townhouse life. They still get spooked with the boxers next door bark at them, and sliiiiiiiiiiide accross the ceramic tile in the dining room and kitchen every once and a while when they forget it isn't carpeted like the old house...but over all I think they like it. =)

I'm going out to make one of my first important adult purchases today, a kitchen table! Wahoo...its strange when you start getting excited about things like that...must mean I am getting old!

Pictures to come soon.

Congrats Mike and Mandy!

Last weekend, we had a baby shower for one of my co workers. Kurt and I really wanted to give Mike and Mandy a very unique and handmade gift. We had planned on making a rocking chair to match the baby's room, but couldn't find one that we liked.

Kurt found this rocking horse at, and we fell in love!

Kurt spent several days sanding and painting the whole thing a light, buttery yellow to match the walls of baby girl Donaldson's room, and then handed it over to me to add all of the details!

We make a pretty good team!

Momma testing her out!
