kids bedrooms tour

Well here it is...our big DIY reveal!! We've been plotting and planning, building, painting and installing. The triple bunk bed is 90% done! The room is about the same. As you can tell we still need to paint the ladders and the support beams. I am also going to add a little painted something on the beds but I'll let that be a surprise! I also have to do some moving around of the wall decor but then this room will be done! But I was so excited about my husbands handy work that I couldn't wait till everything was done to share it with you!! We used the plans from the Handmade Dress website and they were perfect!! You can visit their room before the triple bunk beds here.

We are so excited to have our girls all share a room!! We hope they love it as well. Right now Abi will stay in her crib in her room and the other girls will be on the middle and lower beds until we get a guard rail up top and until Abi is ready for a big girl bed (which may be a while hopefully!!). we're thinking ahead!! The girls LOVE their room and Hannah loves that she doesn't have to sleep in a crib anymore!

 I took most of these photos with my fisheye lens so that is why there is some distortion. I wanted you to be able to get a whole room view!

 Micah used to have bunk beds but we took those down and gave him the queen size bed that was in Abi's room. So if you come to visit we still have room. Micah was THRILLED to have this bed and is so excited for his "new room". We will still move some things around...the shelf will not stay above his bed and we'll probably move his dresser to a different wall. But this is the state his room is in for now.

Micah got this awesome tool bench for his brother-in-law built it and Micah and Greg assembled it. Micah LOVES it!!

 Abi's room lost the queen size bed that took up most of the room and gained a twin size bed. Soon we'll make some desks to go in this room and once Abi is out of her crib this will be our home office!! So excited.

So there is a little kid bedroom tour. Obviously these rooms are NOT finished and there are still little things that need to happen to make them done...but I wanted to share what we've been working on. It's a slow work in progress but we're happy with how it's coming along!!

independence day

Happy Independence Day! Every year this field of flags can be found downtown and every year (well the three we've lived here at least) I said I wanted to take the kids there and take some photos...and this year we did! 

Thank you to all the military personnel and their families. We are the land of the free because of the brave. Thanks for your sacrifices and willingness to fight for our freedom. We know our freedom in the this country is not really free. But our freedom in Christ is FREE!!


 My mom came along so I was able to get in a shot too!!

a REALLY late post about Easter

Just realized the other day that I never shared pictures from Easter. I want to share these so I can remember our Easter of 2014. We went to the Easter Egg Hunt at church the day before Easter and then the kids got to hunt for eggs again during Sunday School. We had a nice lunch at my parents place and enjoyed being together as a family!! Christ is Risen...He is Risen indeed Alleluia! 

I thought Hannah would be the one afraid of the bunny...but this year it was Micah!

I made dresses for the girls again and a tie shirt for Micah. The dress pattern is from Peek A Boo patterns and I love it. It was pretty easy to put together and the girls love to twirl in the dresses! It's called the Audrey Cross Over Party Dress. Check it out it's a great pattern and no button holes or zippers!!

  Love this shot!!
