This is going to be a massive photo dump...because I am posting this at midnight, and we are going on a family field trip to the Roloff Family Farms tomorrow!! So I'll quick post photos and a brief explanation, and then Lily and I are hitting the hay.
I finally set up Lily's crib the other day. Up until now she's been sleeping in a co-sleeper next to our bed. She and her sister Abigail technically share a room, where Abbi's bed and all their toys and clothes are...but because she still nurses at night, I want her crib in the sitting room that is off of our master bedroom. That room is actually my scrapbooking room, and Sam had his office in there too until recently. Our church remodel is finally finished, and now he has his own office there. Sooo, Abbi's old crib got pulled out of storage and all her old crib bedding freshly laundered- and even though I purchased it nine years ago off ebay, I am STILL stoked about my pottery barn steal:) I washed everything in Dreft and set it all up...and you should have seen the look on Lilybird's face when we put her in her princess crib~ pure magic.
And speaking of stoked, I am STILL on cloud nine about our sweet Artem's grant fund which is now at ELEVEN THOUSAND ONE HUNDRED AND ELEVEN DOLLARS!!
I had a lovely time on yahoo chat with Andrea Roberts today, who is equally thrilled at what is happening for Artem. A HUGE thank you to all of you who have been faithfully giving to and praying for Artem- since we completely surpassed our goal of ten thousand dollars for the month of October, and we still have ten days left to go...I say we shoot for even more!! What do you say?!
Please do not forget to leave a comment if you have donated to Artem this month, so that you can be entered to win one of three autographed copies of Ann Voskamp's beautiful book One Thousand Gifts...
or a $50 gift card to Target
or a $50 gift card to Amazon
The bigger Artem's grant fund grows, the greater his chance of a family finding him soon!
So please pray pray pray, friends, and keep spreading the word-
