Darcy, Gord and Torrey went van-hunting yesterday and came home with a winner!
The upside to a bad economy is great deals on vehicles! Darcy was able to talk the dealer down from around $11000 to $7000. Or something like that.
We had to get a van because we were unable to get a car seat and two booster seats in the back of the Saturn.
We have upgraded Kaitlyn to a booster seat. She will sit in the middle row with the baby until she can put her own seat belt on.
Once she can do that she can join Rachael in the very back if she wants.
Oh, yes, it's a 2002 Mazda MPV (or is it MVP? - something like that) with about 120,000k's. It has two sliding doors, remote keyless entry, AC and a CD player. Plus lots of room in the back to fit the stroller.
We're all ready, now we're just waiting for the "go" from baby!
4 1/2 weeks to go (or less, we're hoping). We were able to borrow this crib from our neighbours down the street. I brought back the VeggieTales theme in the hopes that this kid will like them! The big ones don't anymore. How sad. It's complete with the two VeggieTales blankets made by the Grandmas and the bumper pads I made. Speaking of blankets, my neice Amanda made this adorable, super soft blanket for "the bump" as he/she's refered to at the moment. Can't wait to put it to good use! It looks really good in the room with the yellow walls and blue curtains! And the change station is a must in every baby room. Now we're just waiting for "D-day".
We got a bit of an extended Christmas vacation this year. The first day back at school was cancelled because of the weather! I didn't think the roads looked that bad, but I'm not complaining. I guess they needed more time to clear parking lots and such. So we went over to Coli's house where Rachael made a snow horse!
