Look what we got in the mail!

So we opened the mailbox last week and to our complete surprise, this beautiful dress was waiting for us from our friends in College Station, TX. I realized I hadn't posts pictures of Bella lately and just had to share since she looks so angelic in it. The shape of it the dress and the little cap sleeves kindof reminds me of dresses from the 1800's. So pretty!

She pink sandles don't quite hold up, but I didn't want her to get her white shoes to get dirty!

Bella's "New" Chair



So I finally finished re-upholstering Bella's chair. Abel made new rockers out of maple. It's complete with new foam and everything. Ready for Bella's sticky fingers...and she just loves to rock in it!

Cooper's Bedding

I'm SO excited to have completed baby Cooper's bedding. I finished the quilt a long time ago and already gave it to Cooper's mama at her baby shower (when I should have finished the rest of the bedding). Baby Cooper will be sharing a room with his older brother, and their room has a camping theme. The big brother has this bedding.

It's hard to see, but the bed skirt has pleats in the bottom (I'm going to iron them before I give it to baby Cooper). I have to admit that there were many times when I wasn't sure if I liked it, but now seeing it done and looking at big brother's bedding, I have to say it's perfect!
