Getting Ready for Baby

Baby is due in less than two weeks now so we are starting to get everything ready. This is a picture of what was supposed to be baby's room, but we have yet to put the crib together. I think the baby will stay in our room so we aren't too worried about it right now. Also we are probably going to be moving in a few months so I don't feel motivated to put the room together just to take it down so soon.
I am practicing with the cloth diapers since I've never used them before. It didn't seem hard to get one on a baby doll, but that might be different with a wiggly baby. Olivia even tried with one of the easier diapers and she did a pretty good job.

Brian's birthday was on the 7th so we went out to the only chain restaurant in town, Applebee's. This picture is of earlier in the day when we had some of the cake I made for him. Olivia was really excited about the prospect of cake and ice cream.

This is Olivia with the tower she built. She even went and got some tape to help hold the top together because she was worried about it falling over.

We will keep everyone updated on the baby when he or she arrives!

More Snow!

We received about 6 inches of snow last night here in Virginia. I don't think I ever saw that much snow the entire time I lived in NC. It has been a real treat for Olivia because the snow actually lasted more than a few hours. The first picture is of her helping Brian clear the sidewalk after he got home from work today. The next picture is of this morning when we first went out to play and Olivia wanted to clean the snow off the car.Olivia gets to make a snow angel in the deep snow.

This is our backyard this morning. The trees all looked so beautiful in the early morning light. Now i'm off to eat some nice warm chili to complete our fun snow day.
