Lately at our house

I had taken a bunch of pictures recently that don't necessarily go together, but they are all too cute not to post. 

First up, the girls posing on the couch in new outfits from Grandma:

Next, random ones of girls around the house:

playing in shaving cream for our "Parents as Teachers" visit

She is SOOO happy!

Sophie is a little more hesitant to get messy, but she eventually loved it too.

The play kitchen also converts to a car with the faucet as a steering wheel.  Who knew?

And finally, Sophie's "big girl bed." She has done really well staying in it at night.  She even waits for
me to come get her in the morning like she did in her crib.  Just yesterday, she got up on her own from nap time (and didn't take a nap), but her naps have been hit or miss lately anyway, so it isn't a big deal as long as she still sometimes takes naps.

I was really proud of myself for finding great deals on her bedding stuff.  The mattresses were given to us used from someone we know.  They hadn't been used much and were only four years old.  We even have another set for Sally now.  The bed frame came from Craig's list for $70.  I found the bedding at TJ Maxx.  Quilt $25, Sheet set $15, and sham to match quilt $10.   I love it all!

 I want to add something above the headboard but am going to wait till she's a bit older and won't pull it down or destroy it.


  1. Her room and bedding are lovely. Looks like a Pottery Barn Kids Catalog, but for a fraction of the cost! They look so cute and happy in all the photos. What a wonderful home and a stable joyful foundation you are giving your little girls!

  2. Also, they look like they play together so well. It looks like a very sweet and loving home :)

  3. Thanks Beth! They play together well. . . most of the time. They still fight over toys, etc. But, I guess overall, they get along well. I miss you! I need to call you soon.
