The girls room has been done for a little while but I'm just now getting around to posting pictures of it for you. My goal was to make it girly but something that can grow with them. I think I was successful with that.
Isabella (and me) likes to have her and Lily's things match in the room. I needed new sheet sets and was able to find two cute sets that matched. These are my favorite...
So, join me on the tour.
The girls helped me make a lot of things for their room, including these initial plaques.
Everyone loves this bean bag chair!
We made the button mirror.
Mirrored closet doors. These have actually been up since before Christmas. It's funny when I catch Isabella checking herself out in them. Lily is started to also. Raymond just likes to make silly faces at himself.
I painted the back of the bedroom door with a magnetic primer so Isabella could put her pictures on it. Before she was taping her pictures to the wall. For most people that probably isn't a problem, but honestly, I hated when she did it. This was my creative solution. We are in the process of making magnet's out of bottle caps right now for on the back.
I want to make sure you can see the stripes I painstakingly painted. It was a headache but worth it in the end!
Here is a picture of me for those of you who keep saying they haven't seen a picture of my belly. There it is at 33 weeks. I'm wearing my least favorite/flattering maternity jeans. I don't understand why people take pictures of themselves and post them. It's weird to me.
Chloe is ALWAYS on Isabella's bed.
Also, Isabella's blog has a new post today. Please take a look!
On Mother's Day we had planned to take the kid's to the Lehigh Valley Game Preserve. When we got to the zoo, there must have been 50 people in line. They had already been open for about two hours and were just packed. We decided not to stay and took the kids to Country Junction instead. I'm glad we did because they got to play outside awhile and it wasn't crowded.
After we were done outside, we went into the store to walk around. The kids really liked the area with the pets. Puppies and chicks...you can't go wrong!
I don't have many pictures because my camera battery was very low.
On Saturday I took Isabella to our local library for a Mommy and Me afternoon with American Girl Dolls. Isabella loves her American Girls Dolls! For a free event, I thought it was really great. Isabella enjoyed herself.
They had strawberries, grapes, peanut butter & jelly sandwiches and ham & cheese sandwiches.
And don't forget dessert!
They had two crafts for the girls to do. The first was making picture frames. They took our picture and printed it out right away so Isabella had something to put in it. (After we got home we put magnets on the back so she could hang it on the fridge.) The second craft was beaded bracelets.
I've been looking up bus trips to the American Girl store in New York. I think Isabella would love that. The bus trip is more expensive then I thought, so it's going to have to wait. When we finally do get to go, she'll be thrilled.
Tonight, at school, was the elementary art show. Isabella was excited to have her picture displayed for all to see.
