Erika's room

Erika's is now in Jeremiah's old room, which although small will give her a space of her very own.

First, Jeremiah hung her name sign on the door. Alesha made this for her one year in Africa. It represents some of the things she likes to do (reading and sewing/crafts).

Of course, the disadvantage of this room is that is doesn't have a closet, so dad mounted a pole in the hallway for the clothes. We put a dresser there as well that holds the towels/washclothes for upstairs, and the rest of the drawers hold some of both of the girls' extra stuff. The games/puzzles are stacked on top.

On the wall to the right, above the side of the bed is Erika's thimble collection. Duane made the "E" thimble holder for her one year for Christmas.

At the head of the bed is her flute collection. She has her regular flute and her fife at college, however. The drawstring bag holds her double Navajo flute. For more pictures of her flutes, you can go to her blog spot, Nepo's Mulling.

This shows the head of the bed. Everything is white eyelet/embroidery.

I think you should know that Auntie Laura has shown SOME restraint in buying baby girl clothes (that is, AFTER adoption. I went crazy BEFORE adoption, not knowing what size she really would be and golly, Osh'Kosh kept emailing me these 20% off anything -- even clearance -- items (and I could return everything as long as I kept the receipt which I did). But somehow last week, a beautiful red corduroy dress with 3 snowflake appliques and off-white furry collar and cuffs fell into my hands. And today, I found the off-white w/ red snowflake tights to match. Hey, after three nephews, I DESERVE to be buying girly clothes (Uncle Jamey has yet to protest -- he just laughs). She's a doll. Can't wait to see them all at Christmas.

Oh, and I like Erika's flutes. Jordan currently still has my flute -- on loan -- even though he now plays the tuba.

How is the adoption process going for Dean and Lanny? (sp?)

Hey Natalie! How about a new post? Maybe modeling some of those new outfits you have to wear to work now? I'm interested in what kind of stuff you have to wear. Business suits?
