When I stand before God at the end of my life,
I would hope that I would not have a single bit of talent left, and could say,
"I used everything You gave me."

A sweet baby gift!

I know I am at risk of showing this before the gift has been delivered, but I cannot hold it in any longer. Amanda, don't read this if you want to wait to see sweet baby Avalyn's gift!

I painted this canvas in colors that should match Avalyn's Nursery. This was my first try at something like this. Thankfully acrylic paint is very forgiving!

And, I knitted some sweet baby washclothes in Avalyn's room colors too. I really hope she enjoys mommy giving her a bath with them as much as I enjoyed making them for her!

Congratulations Amanda and Carlos on your new edition to the family. I am sure Alivia will be a wonderful big sister!
