She's here

Yesterday was a very long day for all of us and I am worn out so I know the new mama is exhausted but
Emmerson Leigh Walsh is finally here.  Mama and baby are doing great.  Counting our blessings and Thanking God for this precious little one and her mama.  We love you Mel,, You did great and she is BEAUTIFUL!    ( Meme and Pappy cant wait to love her and spoil her rotten)

Amberly is in nursing school and was her own private little nurse.  She was able to
be in the delivery and see her 1st niece make her grand entrance.  To say she was
excited would be putting it very mild.  But it also made her a little nervous about
her own delivery in December. 

Just a few minutes old and getting her footprints done.   I think she looks like Mel
when she was born, except Mel had more hair. 

BEFORE : She was feeling good.  Inducing and contractions had
 not started at this point.

Justin, Melanie and Emmerson.  The absolute best experience ever is seeing
your "little one"  bring their own little one into the world.  Amazing!  She weighed
7 lbs 6 oz (congrats Uncle Dax on guessing the weight). 

Watch out Emmie, your mama has been collecting bows and headbands
the whole 9 months.  This is just your first one to model.

Its a messenger bag

Last week I won a giveaway over at Funky Junk Interiors.  Jeanne Oliver was so generously giving away one of her messenger bags.  I rec'd my package in the mail yesterday and Im in love with it.  I took it outside to see if I could get a few good shots of it so you could really see how pretty it is.   It is very well made and the ruffles are just sturdy enough to stay the way they should, there is a nice size zippered pocket on the inside as well as an open pocket for a cell phone and its very roomy.  I know I will get lots of use out of it.  Thanks again Jeanne and Donna for hosting the giveaway. 

She wrapped it so pretty I really didnt want to open it.  I saved the thick twine
and made a bow out of it. 

   Jeanne has some really pretty things in her etsy shop and some leather cuff bracelets that I cant wait to buy.  I know my girls would just love them.

Wedding prep - take 1

Here is a just a bit of what we've been working on.  And in our true fashion we have waited until its getting very close to actually get our butts in gear and get busy.  But thats okay, thats how we roll and we get it done.  

This is two of the columns (unfinished) that will be sitting by the arch with ferns on them. 
They are gonna be painted white and maybe distressed a little, not sure about that yet. 

Some bags for the bridesmaids that will have a few goodies in it.  We bought the
bags at Hobby Lobby and then cut out the letter and used heat & bond to attach. 

and bouteniers for the groomsmen and ushers and the Dad. 
Not professionally done but we're happy with them.  

And another view,, I'm thinking maybe it needs just a touch of ribbon at the base
or something??

And this one,, is the maid of honor , and is getting ready to deliver
any day now.  She's been at 1cm for 2 weeks,, the Dr has a tentative date set for
induction if nothing happens between now and then.  We'll have a better game plan next
Tuesday when she goes back.   (I think I've taken her picture in the elevator every time I've gone to the
dr with her and I think she has said something like "really mama??" every time.. LOL  

Amberly (and Skyelar) - almost 20 weeks.  I need to get the elevator
pic on her next visit.  She has had the easiest pregnancy.  NO morning sickness at all. 
Which is a blessing because she is also in nursing school. 

stay tuned for a post on the kitchen island Jeff is in the middle of building.
