SUN VALLEY, IDAHO
My well coveted hat!
I love all the photos of my family. But, really, I had a totally different kind of vacation while they were gone! It was all worth it to see the look on my 2 kids faces, when they saw their new rooms.
I lived in a big mess (along with Eric) has I decided to surprise Anna by redecorating her room. I must tell you that I did enjoy the 'shopping' part, especially IKEA. I can really go crazy there. I had a budget and I stuck to it.
I reused furniture that we had in other rooms (curio cabinet from my bathroom; antique dresser that housed miscellaneous items). I took out her old furniture (in the basement for now). I even took apart her bed and scooted into her alcove. Perfect fit!
It was a very stressful week!! Long days and nights. I am extremely thankful for my parents help. I so couldn't have done it without their help. Thanks mom and dad!
The motto for her room was 'SIMPLIFY' (really its Karl's motto but we all have to live with that ;0) I cleared out her closet and just made it easier to clean. She has kept it clean...so far.
I set up a HUGE loft bed in Joshua's room. Karl is not totally convinced that we will keep it. But, for the mean time. Josh is having fun touching the ceiling or should I say, "climbing it"?
I am glad that my family had a safe AND FUN trip. I am also happy that they are home, so I can hug each one...hundred times!!!
Thank you Lord, Jesus for wrapping each one of my members in your arms.
