Today is all about kids rooms over at Kelly's Korner. Since I recently posted both of the kids new rooms I thought I would post pictures of the playroom instead. We feel so very blessed to have a bonus room upstairs that we can use as a playroom. It is perfect for the kids and all of their toys and such. I love it because I just let the kids go up and play and I don't ever have to worry about cleaning it (it took me forever to clean it up to take these pictures). Great situation! It is a really fun room that we enjoy hanging out in. This is the view from the top of the stairs as you walk up. The room is done in red and denim blue.
Matt did an amazing job of building these built in shelves! It was a huge project but it turned out awesome.

Do you remember a post about a month ago where I said we needed to find a new home for our crib?
Well, we found it an awesome new home...
We are so excited for them! Baby East is due January 9, 2013. We cannot wait to meet the new little one. I cannot wait to become an aunt. I am going to be a super cool aunt. The kiddos are so excited about having a cousin. There is a little fight about among them if it is going to be a girl cousin or boy cousin. You can check out their blog on the side for more details about this upcoming blessing!

I am so excited to say we are finally done with Kate's princess room!!! So exciting! I had a fun time putting the room together. It was a challenge to make it "princessy" without being over the top Disney. I think it turned out great. It makes me so happy everytime I walk into the room. Here is the view from the door. I tried to reuse as much as I could from her nurery but also change it up some and make it "big girl." We left the pink stripes on the walls but painted over the polka dot wall.
Her big girl bed!! My mom found the sham and spread at the end of the bed at a yard sale for $20. It was the color inspiration for the room. It was perfect because it pulled in the light pink, green and hot pink. I found the white spread at Bed, Bath & Beyond on clearance.
This was a canvas that a friend painted to be used at Kate's baby shower. It looks so cute in her room now!

It is hot outside!!! We have had a week of really high temperatures and the long range forecast just looks hot as well! It is never good to see 105 degrees for several days on the forecast. The heat makes it hard to get outside during the middle of the day. We spend lots of time inside or at the pool. Last night around 7 we decided it was cool enough to go out for a little trip to the park. It was still hot but bearable. The kids had fun playing.

We had a great weekend! Friday night we enjoyed dinner with some friends that we have been meaning to have over for about 3 years! It was nice to finally get together. Saturday we did yard work, cleaned the garage and did errands. Not the most fun things. But after naps we all loaded up along with my parents and brother and hit the bowling alley! Ben had been asking to go back since he went to a birthday party. We had heard that the bowling alley on the military base was nice so we went out there. It was awesome! We had a great time together. The kids were so cute bowling. Kate carried the ball all by herself. (Sorry I totally forgot my good camera so the pictures are a little blurry).
Matt was intense!
