Getting Ready for Amber

I am so excited for Amber to come on Saturday! She will stay and play with us until the middle of June. We've been getting ready for her arrival. Truth be told, we've been getting ready for over a month. Step one was ordering a bed, dresser, and mattress. My mom slept on the bed, Amber will use it, and finally it will become Luke's big boy bed. My mom was here when the furniture came, so she (and not me!) helped Jared assemble it. Luke was a big helper too.

Putting the dresser together

This weekend we tried to organize the closet in Luke's room to make room for Amber's clothes. The keyword is tried. After moving lots of boxes and putting some things into the empty dresser, the closet still looks as full as it did before I hauled everything out. Hopefully I did some good. Today (while the Jetta is in the shop AGAIN and we are stranded at home) I started some deep cleaning.

Can't wait to see you, Amber.

and I can't wait to see YOU.
I would also like to say that the text it made me type to add my comment was snartox. Pretty awesome word. I think we should invent a definition and begin using it in everyday vocabulary. It kind of sounds like when you sneeze and an excess of snot comes out. "Ew gross. I just snartoxed" or "holy snartox!" any other ideas?
And my apologies to anyone who may be entirely grossed out by my comment. I might have crossed that line again. Oops!
