My Girl....

I am still amazed that I have this little girl. I was resolved that I would have nothing but boys because there are no girls on my husbands side and that would have been fine, but God had other plans for me and sent me this little angel and I am truly blessed by her. Notice her new favorite (big) stuffed animal, you guessed it, a horse.

My Holiday House

You will have to excuse the remnants of Santa laying around, and the unorganized entertainment cabinet. The plan is to put a fireplace where the tree is.
You can tell that I am not a very good photographer, there are several blurry pictures. Oh! there is a bag of trash next to the back door, what was I thinking!

Here is the little nook in Nicolas' room.
We did a log cabin theme in his room because we loved going to the Smokies so much.
This is Mackenzie's room, notice all of her stuffed animal friends on the bed and all of her artwork on her bulletin board.
and more stuffed animals hanging on for dear life in the net in the corner, you can see my storage dilemma in her room. There is absolutely no more room for any more stuffed animals.

You can see why I have a meltdown if they start falling out of their net.

I have a Christmas tree problem, I can't go near one without wanting to bring it home. I have a tree in every room of the house, including the bathrooms. (See the one on the shelf) I totally forgot to take pictures of the other bathroom, but it has one also. I will be redoing the other bathroom shortly, so will be posting before and after pictures soon.
My bedroom, yes that is another Christmas tree at the foot of the bed. Our goal is to add a new Master bedroom and bath so Mackenzie could have this room. We also want to add a Sunroom off of our Dining room (which I also forgot to take pictures of) I guess I will need at least 2 more Christmas trees when this happens, ha ha.

This is how I winterize my bedroom, I just change out pillows. It makes it easy for me to keep
a neutral spread and change out pillows for the seasons.

I will be posting updated pictures of the house later room by room. As the count down to Spring cleaning begins, I would love to have your comments and fresh new ideas for some easy and inexpensive updates to each one.

I Love Fall

I love the look of the monogram pumpkins.

I also love the monogram wreath.

Fall makes me think of curling up by a fireplace with a good book.

I am getting that cozy fall feeling and can't wait for the cool crisp mornings and the trees to
start changing color. I love fall decor and all of the rich, warm colors. Fall is time for candles,
throws, pumpkins, mums and fireplaces on those cool nights.

Me Too.......

To Do List

I have a big to do list this coming week, I hope I can accomplish them all.
I usually only get one or two things done, but it is nice to be hopeful.
I am a list maker so we shall see: Housework (of course)
Wash windows and plant mums.
Clean out and organize living room closet.
Play with my camera and take pictures
of my "clean" house to blog about.
Dress up the kids and take them out
and take some fall pictures.
Hopefully, get Sis some pants and leggings
to wear before it turns cold.
Cook every night (yeah, right)
