I have the most talented mother in law!!!


A month or so ago I asked my mother in law if she would mind painting something for the nursery... I wasn't looking for anything elaborate or huge, just something special that was from her. Well, when you ask her to do something she doesn't just do it small... she goes all out- and she does it so well!!! Not only did she make something for the baby, but she made something for Deacon too- and both the paintings for the baby and for Deacon match their rooms PERFECTLY (seeing as though I sent her fabric swatches of the quilts and such)!!!

I honestly cannot get over how special these paintings are to us... Deacon LOVED his paintings and loved helping Damien hang them on his wall. Once they were on his wall he screamed down the stairs for my mom and I to come look- he was absolutely beaming with pride when he showed us. Too cute.

On top of the paintings Grammy and Grumpy got Deacon a really neat book about Transportation (the boy is a geek when it comes to vehicles and construction equipment) and a set of construction vehicles... he was in HEAVEN! For living so far away, Grammy and Grumpy sure do know what their boy likes :)

Unfortunately I didn't get any pictures of the ones Anne did for the baby... by the time Damien had those hung Zac wasn't letting me put him down and everyone else was wrapped up in bedtime routine with Deacon. I'll get a good picture of those tomorrow.
