This week, I’m posting pictures of Jack and Casey’s room for Show Us Where You Live Friday. I’ve just found some really cute decorating blogs and now I feel like I should spruce up their rooms and be a little more decorative. I especially felt like I needed to do more after I saw this room.
We had a great Memorial Day Weekend, but I am mad at myself for not having a camera with me every where we went. They were many, many photo-worthy moments and sadly, I forgot the camera. Luckily, I still have my words.
It happened again…
I love my table and china cabinet. The cabinet just happened to fit perfectly into that cutout in the wall when we moved here. Some day I might be able to keep wine in the wine rack, like after the toddler years. For now, it does a decent job of collecting dust.
This is my holiday china…pretty simple – white with a couple of platinum bands around it. It’s probably been used about 10 times. For a long time it sat in the boxes because we didn’t have the china cabinet to put them in. I’m glad I can at least display it now and some day we’ll use it a little more often.
We went old-school with the book selection tonight during Jack’s story time. First, we read an Elmo Christmas book. Probably should have put it away with the Christmas stuff, but he never actually read it until after Christmas…it was kind of low priority after all the other cool gifts and books. Anyway, it was Elmo’s 12 Days of Christmas. I sang the whole thing and I think it is about the stupidest remake of the 12 Days of Christmas I’ve ever heard, even if it does have Elmo on every page.
Today we’re having a lazy Sunday morning. It’s raining, or about to, and Jack asked to watch a movie. Actually, he said, “I want to watch a couple of movies.” And thankfully, he asked to watch Nemo instead of Cars. I just have to fast forward through commercials since we recorded it on the DVR. If he can get through one movie, I’ll be impressed.
The pie crust that Mum made for the strawberry pie. And then we forgot to take a picture of the finished product. Rest assured, it was delicious.
Now that I’ve recovered my dog and double check the front door locks every night, let’s move on to something else…
This is the opposite side of the room from the bed. There is even room in the drawers for guests’ clothes. The chest used to be in front of the bed until the trains arrived. Tugger hangs out in the crate when we are out of the house.
Oh. My. Gosh.
The dog has been barking all day. If I had a nickel for every Woof! that came out of his mouth today, I would be able to send him to a kennel and not have to listen to it anymore.
