Around the World!

I've spent way too much time pondering how to decorate Kate's hospital room. I want it to be stimulating. I want it to include all of the amazing people praying for Kate and thinking about our family. I want it to distract Kate for a few minutes at a time. I want it to put a smile on her face.

I've avoided hard to think about things like chemo used my time wisely while thinking about this and have come up with what I hope will be a wonderful "theme" for Kate's hospital room.

And I need your help!!

How awesome would it be to fill Kate's walls with pictures of the beautiful world she will be sheltered from for an entire year? Since she can't get out, help us bring the world to her!

Cinderella's Castle, Davis Wade Stadium, New Orleans, Idaho, Long Beach, New York City, the Eiffel Tower, Australia, China, Tokyo, Gulfport, OBX, Waikiki, Mandeville.

It doesn't matter where you live, a metropolitan city or a one stop light town, or where you have traveled, send pictures our way! I'd love it to be picture you have taken of a place that is special to you - somewhere you want to share with Kate. Feel free to tell the story behind the picture - I can pass it along to my curious girl! You can e-mail me at werefinallythree@gmail.com and I will print them out and have them in Kate's room!

Do you think we can get all 50 states? All 7 continents?

I'll be sure to give y'all a tour of the room after it is decorated!
