Possibly The Most Pics In One Post

Get ready for picture overload. We had a busy, fun-filled weekend. It started off with a bang with Zach's 2nd Birthday party.

Isn't this the cutest cake that Katie ordered? Zach is really into "choo-choos" right now.


He was so cute opening his presents. He had to stop and play with each one before he could move on to the next one.




His parents got him his first new car! He loves it!


He got a little shy when we sang "Happy Birthday" to him. :)


He sure did love his cake though! It was such a fun party.



My parents surprised us by bringing up our crib! It was ordered from a store in their town but my Mom didn't tell me it had come in! I came home from work on Friday and it was in the nursery. Of course I wanted to put it together right then.


I love it!


(Those pictures are not going over it, I just haven't taken them down yet. )


My Mom painted the changing table for me while they were here. It is going in the closet so it didn't have to match the crib exactly.


My Dad built some shelves for the nursery closet. Of course he did it with some help from his biggest fan and constant shadow.


They are going to be painted to match the trim. This will add so much more storage!







My dad also built a small shelf for my printer to sit on under the secretary. I don't know what I would do without my parent's help! Everything is really starting to come together.

I hope everyone has a wonderful Thanksgiving! I'll be back next week with Christmas decorations. :)
