Nicole feels homeless. She had her own room until Tori was born. Then she moved in with Tyler until Tori was old enough to share again. Now they share a room, but Nicole still calls it "Tori's Room" and doesn't feel like it's hers. So, to remedy the problem, I told her she could make it her room and she could decorate it. Ben's mom made new blankets for the girls so we went with those colors: pink, green, brown, and white. The girls and I LOVE the blankets and I'm thrilled I didn't have to actually buy new comforters to match the new room.
The only problem with telling a 5 year old girl that she can decorate her own room is that she'll inevitably pick out something that you hate. I tried to steer her away from a few things, but she was in love and it's more important for her to like it than me. So, here's the new room:
I love the way the pictures of the girls turned out. Nicole says the picture is as big as she is, she might be right. I found the frames on clearance at JC Penny and covered them with cute scrapbooking paper. I think they turned out great.
They love the way their bed looks when it's made, but that doesn't make them want to actually do the work.
