I have much to be thankful for... but today I have picked a FINISHED kids' room to rejoice in.
Today I put up the Spiderman Border (a last minute request from the near 6 year old to ditch Transformers and decorate in S-man instead), added S-man stickers, bought a S-man poster, bought new bed spreads, and added a new S-man rug and hamper. (It's hard to be a boy these days huh?)
As for madame Blondie... she required no less effort. Today I put up her Hannah Montana wall sticker, added a Hannah Wall Art, put K-girl's name in letters on her wall, added an iron on decal to a new lamp shade, spray painted her end table white and decorated it with Hannah Montana photos and modge podge... and gave her a new Hannah pillow and fleece blanket. Ahhhh... the life of the 3 year old girl in our home. Rough.
Yes- it has been a lot of work in the last 2 days... but I AM SO THANKFUL for the opportunity to give my children their own space that they enjoy. The three of them do share a room but it is a big room. And though to some it may seem unfortunate...as many people have 4, 5, and 6 bedroom homes... the blessings found in our current arrangement are endless.
God wouldn't have us here if He didn't have a purpose right???
Here's some pictures of the room (almost) finished. There are a few things that will go in the room after their birthday parties (which is why there is empty space on the walls.)
Psssssst.... don't tell K-girl but she is getting a "Lucky Lu-Lu" (Hannah Montana's guitar) for her b-day- and it will have a place to hang on the wall. Yippee!
By the way- I just tried "Spell check" in the event it decided it wanted to work again... and IT DOES!!! And so- today on Thankful Thursday- I am also thankful for a Spell Checker that works again. Lord knows I've missed it.
