Boys' Room


I have finally "finished" the boys' room!  As finished as anything can be in a home, since decorating and organizing are rather organic as a family grows and changes.


I have tried to incorporate things that are useful and/or have some kind of significance.  One quilt my grandmother made for my mother, before she was born, the other quilt I made for my hope chest.  The pendant flags are left from A.'s first birthday.


The pictures are of the boys as newborn babies, plus a large framed vintage print of a little boy with an airplane (since Daddy flies!) and a "paper tole" girl praying, that my parents made and hung on my nursery wall as a child.


The bed is a reading corner right now and the mat on the floor is a fun play spot.  The curtain is a blackout shade that is supposed to help A. sleep late.  I don't think it's working as well as we hoped!  All the furniture was given to us from family.

Our Week

Wow, I didn't realize that it's been two months since I last posted!  Here's a quick set of photos, illustrating our last week:

A favorite activity these days!  A new shopping center is going in near our house and we frequently walk over to watch the tractors and heavy equipment work.

Haircut time.  "Screen time" is a treat so I put tractor videos on--worked great!

Glued to the screen!

Little brother playing with bugs. :-)

My boys!

This hat was Crandon's when he was a little guy.

Matching!

This picture is from a few weeks ago.  Giggles as Daddy ruffles up the hair.
