The boys' new room is coming along! It will be a while before I get bedding or a cushion and pillows for the bench in the middle but I am so excited about how great it turned out. This was really stressful to design because we wanted it to be functional but cool. The boys are sleeping in there for the first time tonight. They are thrilled- it was like Christmas to them. We had an amazing carpenter who will be greatly missed around here. He was in our house all day every day for 7 or 8 weeks. I hope the boys have so many great memories of growing up together.

I do put clothes on Lake but, somehow, he never has them on for more than 5 minutes. He is a free spirit. He does love wearing Reece's flip flops though. :)

I have so much organizing to do and it is very overwhelming for me. Organizing is not one of my strengths. I am determined to have their new closet organized to the max.

Here is Tim in the new "man room". Most of it used to be our attic.
He is staining the new bar area. The bar will serve popcorn and cokes for the movies. I think we will have to stay in this house forever because we have customized it so much, I don't know if it would work for anyone else.

I love this house. I am so grateful for how incredibly blessed we are and hope that God continues to use our home for ministry and as a place where people can feel the love of God.

Tim is so hot. We are both worn out from this project. I am officially remodeled out. Today, I went to Hobby Lobby and bought some frames for the boy's room. I left them in the buggy... in the parking lot. I swear I am losing my mind.

I will be having a garage sale in the next month or so selling lots of baby boy clothes and toys and bedding.

WOW! That boys' room is FANTASTIC! How fun. They will have such great memories of that room.
Man's room is also very nice. My husband dreams of such a space. Someday I hope he'll have one.
