Its normal to let four 3-year-olds help in the painting of their big kid rooms, right? Yah- I must say…it definitely wasn’t MY idea, but I’m glad that we did it. (Drew, Ethan, Ben, Sav)
They had so much fun!
After about an hour of this craziness,
…we kicked the kids out of the house (by the grace of Liz and Chris, and Collin & Ashley!)…BEST. FRIENDS. EVERRRRRRRRR!
Joe and I had fun in our empty house, working on our little project together. Here is the room after we had painted all the primer.
Ade, I love you and I thank you & your family for painting the nurseries for me while I was in the hospital on bedrest---but I have to tell you that Joe was cursing your name while he attempted to paint over the green and polka-dotted ceiling! LOL. I was dying laughing!
Primer in the 2nd nursery.
As if we couldn’t love Chris and Liz anymore for taking our kids ALL DAY LONG---they came back over and helped us paint!!! Chris is incredible at the fine details. Couldn’t have done it without him…or at least- it definitely wouldn’t have looked good!
So, we had to figure out what to do with the kids for night time while we worked on their bedrooms…we brought their mattresses downstairs and they had a little slumber party on our living room floor. At this time, it is like 10:00 pm- but they eventually all fell asleep. Such a weird, weirrrrrd day! (Notice Shiloh and her beaming red eyes? creepy. lol)
We worked and worked and worked until about 2am! Chris and Liz spent the night with us (a HUGE thanks to Liz’s mommy for tending to their twin girls so they could stay and help us).
Awwww- aren’t they cute?
Liz and I about to pass out from sheer exhaustion.
This pic was a little after 2am. Notice how far I had to move Ethan and Andrew apart? Those crazy tweedles play with each other nonstop.
And this is what we have so far:
Joe and I are IN LOVE with the colors we picked out and they look SOOOOOO good with their bedding! The boys’ room is a dark khaki with an espresso brown trim.
Sav’s room is the dark khaki color on top, with a more subtle sage green on the bottom. It looks phenomenal with her bedding!
Here is the bunk bed that Joe put together! Ben is beyond thrilled to have the top bunk! SO EXCITED! Drew will sleep below him and Ethan will sleep on the separate twin bed right beside the bunk bed. I let them choose where they wanted to sleep and it actually worked out perfectly! (that was a nice surprise for once! LOL)
Drew, Sav, Ben, and Ethan
We still have lots to do. Need to purchase sheets and curtains (so freaking expensive)…and waiting for Savi’s new full bed to arrive! We have super cute wall decals for each room that I love. Can’t wait to put it all together and show you!!!
Chris and Liz, thanks again for all of your help. You are incredible friends and we love you to pieces.
