This weekend was great! First, Bret finished his paper, turned it in, and came home with these:
I LOVE tulips! It was so sweet and thoughtful of him, and I was really encouraged. Then, Friday evening, I got to hang out with 2 sweet friends from college that I hadn’t seen in a LONG time. It was a blessing to hear what the Lord is doing in them, and just to be girly:
Then on Saturday, we (finally) put up the baby furniture and got some things organized to make space for baby stuff. Here are some in-progress pics:
As you can see, Bret did most of the work. I did help, though, he just doesn’t think about taking pictures. We spent almost the whole day putting things together and re-arranging the house, but the big stuff is pretty much ready. Here’s what it looks like now:
Mr. Elephant has already taken up residence:
