Yup, I've been painting Baby T.'s room. First was the ceiling (boring no fun yuk). Then the walls (mom and dad had primed them a while back, much to my happiness!). And to my mom's horror, I chose yellow. Yes, I know they say that yellow is a stressful color, but I still think it is cheery. We chose a lighter cooler yellow than the one in Rhianwen's room. And I think I really like it! I still need to paint the molding.
I couldn't quite duplicate the true color of the walls with our camera, but these 2 pics are close. The color is really somewhere between the 2 that you see.
We went to a huge consignment sale and got some rompers for Baby T., dresses, shirts, and shorts for Rhianwen, and some toys and books.
One of the dresses had a stain in it, but I got it out using good old Greased Lightning. If you all haven't tried it, it works like a dream. It got out all of the chocolate icecream from the heart shirt of Rhianwen's, got out really OLD stains from the little white dress that was Rhianwen's Grandmama's when she was a baby, and gets out almost everything that Rhianwen manages to get on her clothes. It's a life saver!
We also got a big double jog stroller off of craigslist for $150!!! The exact one we had wanted too! So we are so excited about that. For those of you who haven't shopped for a jogger stroller, this is really cheap. We saved more than 50% buying it this way. Sorry, don't have a pic yet b/c I'm lazy.
Also, Wally worked on the front bed this weekend. He moved the camelia, cut down the holly bushes, and is removing the stumps, which means there is nothing left in the front beds. Ha! Don't have pics of that either.
