Guess what I accomplished on Monday morning. ORDER! In Gabbi's room!
And apparently my sweet angel appreciated it too, because this may just have been the second time she has EVER lay in her own bed. She is always piled up in Ellie's bed.
But I do wish she would want to stay in her bedroom more often. I actually think it's my favorite room of the house (except my artroom of course). Gabs's colors are very peaceful.
And for whatever reason, the lighting in her room is always perfect. And now, we don't have a Christmas tree, any snowman figurines, or a big pastel wreath on her door. So, it's back to normal around here.
Somehow or another, we managed to mesh all their new toys, games, art projects, etc with all their "old" toys, games, art projects, etc.
Trust me when I tell you that a day before this photo was taken, you couldn't even tell there was a bed underneath the pile!!
I got rid of TONS of stuffed animals. Don't worry, they were donated to a program who actually needed them. But there were lots of them, I just couldn't part with . Namely... the ones that were dogs or cats. WHY is that?! My hoarding tendencies run DEEP!!
I seem to just move my little figurines around. Bookshelf. Ellie's shelf above her bed. In the den. And now, they have found their way to the kids' books shelf.
Gabs got so many dishes and play food, that we now have to have an overhaul on the play kitchen area.
But, taaaaaa daaaaah!! I am so excited to show this. I got rid of two whole bins of dress up clothes. Nevermind that I have a whole suitcase packed with princess dresses, because we will be in Disney in a few weeks, and we are at the perfect age to be dressing like a princess every single day! Dontcha agree? So, that just means that when we return, we will have to squeeze all of those back in, but in the meanwhile, I will RELISH the ORDER in my NEST. (Did I just manage to squeeze my words from the last three years into one sentence?!)
I also sort of moved all the baby beds and babydolls to the other side of the room.
My little chickies will have real live "centers" like they do in pre K or Kindergarten!! Ha. As if... this ORDEr will last just about a whole week. But then, I'll regroup and go at it again!
