The kids have been bringing me lots of
I caught the boys enjoying some quality literature together on the couch. Actually, Waldo is veritably enjoyable. But the highlights magazine?....ugh. Why did I like Highlights so much as a kid? We currently get all three Highlights iterations (Hello, High Five, and Highlights) in the mail as gift subscriptions for the kids. I don't like any of them. The stories and the art are just *not* that great.
Flora's second-ever smile, caught on camera! Also, I love love love little girls' vintage clothing. I have lots of great outfits like this from our local flea market.
We have been working FOREVER on Stella's bedroom. We started last May, expecting to be done by the end of the summer....not realizing that Tom's job would become incredibly demanding this past year, leaving us very little time or energy to spend on the room. So for almost a year now, Linus has been sleeping in the playroom, and Stella in the spare room. I'm SO ready for this project to be done so I can turn it into the girls' room, and we can finally move onto something new.
The to-do list for the room
Stain the trim and doors
Poly the trim and doors
Repair wall around heating vent
Paint nightstand - Stella
Paint headboard - Stella
Find area rug
Still a lot of work to do!
