Dressed for SPRING!


My bedroom is all dressed up for the spring/summer season!


I added a TON of white lace!
The little Easter tree is wearing a bridal veil of tulle.


Lace is hanging under the mirror in place of a headboard and the bow from the veil is pinned in the middle.



Doesn't everyone have a lighted wreath in their bedroom?


Summer gave me this cute little Easter ornament......
makes me hungry for some S'Mores!

So now that our bedroom is dressed for spring I need to see about changing out my wardrobe. I plan to do just that this very afternoon.


And we may treat ourselves to some S'Mores tonight!
We love sitting in the gazebo in the evenings and I have a wood fire all ready to light.
Today we will take the rest of the houseplants outside and I'll spruce things up a bit in there. That gazebo has been one of the best things we have ever done. It's like having another living room - only it's outside! It's our favorite place to read and have coffee in the mornings and then cheese and crackers with a glass of wine in the evenings.

I just talked to Amber on the phone - she saw her doctor this morning and he told her she's home for at least another week. She and all four babies are looking good.
Next week she will have another anatomy scan where they will 'grow the babies.'
It will show them exactly how much each one of them weighs and how much they have grown. She will be at nearly 22 weeks at that time. She has gained 4 pounds in the last few days so hopefully that will also be reflected in the babies' growth as well. The doctor is starting her on a prescription to keep contractions at bay. She also has two nurse home visits each week. Having quads is a complicated venture!


I'm looking forward to seeing these little ones.
This photo is of Baby C - the boy baby - from last week's scan.


This is one of the babies they thought were identical twins.
I love looking at these 'pictures.'

 I want to thank each and every one of you for each and every prayer offered for my daughter and her husband and these babies.
I am very grateful!

Your bedroom looks wonderful, so pretty and fresh. I love changing mine out for summer...we still have some cold weather here so I have time to browse around. And I'm working on the wardrobe, too!

Our neighbors at the lake have a gazebo and it is so nice to sit in it and enjoy the fresh air. I'd love to have one!

I love seeing the babie's ultrasounds. They are so much more sophisticated then back in the day! You can see so much more! I am glad that Amber is doing well!

XO,
Jane

The Quad good news keeps coming, and that's the way it should be. Wonderful, all round. :-)

Your bedroom is so pretty to look at. But I'm kinda' lazy, and wouldn't like taking those pillows off at night, and having to put 'em back on, in the morning. L-A-Z-Y!!! I admit it. -giggles-

I am still amazed at how you can enjoy sitting out doors, without being *consumed* by mosquitoes. You are soooooooooooooooo lucky!

Your bedroom is wonderful - do you change it for every season? Does your hubby like lace - lol!

I have my clothes out but my room stays the same all year round.

Beautiful bedroom- I love all the white you used. White is one of my favorite colors but with kids there is barely any of it in my house. Couldn't guess why could you? LOL

Glad Amber got a good report today. Continued prayers for her and the little ones.

Enjoy your smores tonight Linda!

The room looks very cozy! Just like a lace doily, lol. LD will get a kick out of that.

Glad yall enjoy the gazebo so much. Wish we could spend more time on our back patio - everything just has to be so super dog proof and nothing left behind, as you know!

Also happy yall are getting to relax some and enjoy being home in between all this quad craziness. Get ready for next week!! Love you Mom!
