room 2

i don't have any real great before pictures. so i will just let Mason's new room speak for itself.
this little in between room (between our bedroom and what is now Henry's bedroom) has been a play room at one point and Campbell's room. Now, it is just Mason's room.

if Campbell had special drawings, then Mason needed one too :)

Mason's tea party.

i need to repaint her name, something a bit more girlie.

first impressions.

even though Campbell had just seen his new room, he was a bit confused with why Mason's stuff was in his room. He gets it now.

with so many wonderful things to look at and play with, this room keeps Mason very happy. And now we have a place for her girl friends to come and play!

my dad.

Campbell's new train room. i do hope that at some point we begin to call this his bedroom, but for the immediate future, it will be known as "his train room".
our home improvements continue, and Sam and his dad (Paul/Papa) were great and gave me an extra room for one of our children. once the room was built, i called in my dad (Michael/Pappy) to come and turn it into something fantastic.
So.... enjoy the pictures. And when you can, come and see for yourself.
Before: train zone.

love you dad!

do you see the clouds on the ceiling?

a waterfall and lake for the trains to go over.

the giraffes

Campbell's first impressions:

all of these trains were spaced apart, Campbell had to move them all together.

Henry was pretty excited too.

Campbell was so excited by his new room, but the excitement didn't cloud his track making skills. He had to immediately change the bridge Pappy made because it wasn't right.

Campbell slept in his new room the very first night. He was so excited, and has since been building new tracks and having fun,fun,fun in this very special room.
Thank you sooooooooooooooo much to my dad for working non-stop for 3 days (not just for this room, but for 2 other rooms that I will show later- hopefully tonight!) and for all his merry helpers (my mom, Ashley, and Steven).
This room is just what I had hoped for!

i have to many pictures of my kids eating.

but it's because they are so cute.
