So When I put up their tree up I use the most colorful lights and let them decorate with the ornaments they picked out over the years. I want them to feel proud of their tree, this is their space and I want them to love it! And I get the joy of seeing my babies sleep under their tree every night too.....isn't that the best?!
This year I wanted to make the boys flannel pajamas and pillow cases. I looked high and low for a set of sheets from LL bean, to Walmart, to Potterybarn, literally everywhere. I originally planned to use a set of sheets to make the boys pjs and use the already made pillow cases for their beds. You can sometimes get more yardage for your money that way. But with my particular taste I could not find what I wanted, then I finally came across flannelworld.com and the selection of plaid flannel was great.
So glad I didn't settle, I love the warmth these pillow cases bring to the room.....
and in Iowa we do need warmth, not that it's been very cold, it's been super nice lately.......
This is the tree we used in our little house in KC. It's pretty special, we used to put it on a table because there wasn't enough floor space in our 1st house....I have great memories with this little tree and I'm so glad my boys get to enjoy it now!
Santa is enjoying the desert this year....:)
This room has been so much fun to design and build upon and yes I do have more to come with this little space. But for now you'll find me laying on one of the boys beds, building block towers, reading books, their little world makes me happy! I think this quote sums it up for me....
“Creativity is an area in which younger people have a tremendous advantage, since they have an endearing habit of always questioning past wisdom and authority.” -Bill Hewlett
