1. Tape together the two peices the mural comes in:
2. Tape carbon paper to the back - of course, there was only enough for one side at a time...we wouldn't want this to be over quickly now, would we?
3. Decide where you want the tree to go and tape it to the wall (this is where I thought I wanted the tree to go - see how I lined the bottom of the tree up with the floor - it seemed like a good idea at the time...)
4. Trace the tree pattern with a ball-point pen so the design copies onto the wall
Doesn't it look great?! He's happy I let him buy the nail gun - I told him it was an early birthday gift. It sure made faster work nailing all those individual peices to the wall! It was quite noisey though and the times I was in there with him, it kind of made the baby jump a few times, which was cool. Since it's a pain to put pics up in these blogs, I'm making a separate entry for the tree project.
But before I leave, here is a look at the grass:
Bonnie got herself in this one. She was looking at the camera all nice but just as I was taking the picture she moves faster than the speed of light to scratch her back - why do dogs always do that?

This weekend my parents came down to spend 4th of July weekend with us. We had a really nice visit. They brought their dog with them and he had a lot of fun playing with Bonnie. I think she's still a bit worn out from all the action...she slept most of yesterday. We did some shopping on Friday and picked out our nursery furniture! We ordered our crib, dresser and glider :-)
The crib looks like this:
Isn't it pretty? I can't wait for it to come in! I hope we have the walls all done by then and we can set it up right away. I'll be working on the nursery a bit during the week and hopefully Dan makes some good progress this weekend while I'm at work. Between the kicks and the progress I'm really feeling good about this pregnancy and am starting to relax and get excited about having this baby. I didn't take a belly picture this week, but maybe next week....I think I hit another plataeu anyway.
We had fun at our neighbor's picnic for the fourth. He has a smoker and made brisket and hot links and chicken wings and it was really good. There were so many fireworks. They started at like 7 and were still going off at around midnight. They sure know how to have a good time.
Well, I think that's it for now...time to go to the Home Depot....again...
