A New Room for Three Boys

My middle daughter has four boys. The two middle boys are ages 3 and 4. They had a nice bedroom downstairs but did not like sleeping down there. So my daughter and her husband decided to take the smaller bedroom upstairs and move the two middle boys in with the baby. This was a lot of work in itself. But they wanted to give the room a new painting and decor for the the boys, so I thought I would show you how talented my daughter is.

Her husband painted the walls and got the first coat of paint on the tree then my daughter took over. She has been working on this for about two weeks. As you can imagine with 3 boys four years and under it is taking her a while to get it done. There is another wall that she has not started on yet and a few things that need finished in these areas. But I took these pictures when I stopped in the other evening and could not help but post them.

My oldest daughter is an illustrator. You can see her art work on her blog at:

And my youngest daughter is our chef. She has always loved to cook and bake. She makes some lovely cakes for family birthdays.

I am proud of all of my daughters they have grown into wonderful young ladies.

Hi Brenda, oh wow, this is absolutely darling. She has done a fantastic job. Those boys will have a ball in there, now if they will ever go to sleep from having a "zoo" with them!! You certainly do need to be proud of those 3 girls, you must have had a lot of fun when they were growning up!! Have a wonderful Thanksgiving week!

What an adorable room! Very talented daughter you have there! And one who cooks are blessed, indeed!!!!
I love Debbie Macomber! How exciting that you got to meet her. She is from WA, not to far from us, but I have never met her. Love her books!
I see you have the MJ blogs on your sight too...don't you just love them? I met Rene this summer and she is such a lovely person. I really enjoy her writings.
I've been w/out a computer for a week, but will try and post soon!
Have a wonderful Thanksgiving!!
