Mud Room Space

As promised, I’m back with the improvements we’ve made to our den by the back door! For Christmas, we received a hat rack and shoe bench we’d been eyeing at IKEA from Jonathan’s parents.

If you’ll remember, here’s how sad our entryway was before:

Needless to say, it didn’t take long before we were assembling those babies! And here’s how she looks:

DSCN0884I’m so pleased with how it has matured the space. We really thought about making our own coat rack from a pallet, and I’m glad we didn’t. This will be something that will last us (maybe even go with us to our next house).

One thing is  for sure, this room has come a long way since we moved in 2.5 years ago!

Homemade Kid Clothes

My kids are incredibly blessed to have such talented grandmothers. Since Christmas, Liam and Ellis have been enjoying several things made for them.

Ellis was also fortunate enough to receive such a fun little skirt from her Mimi (not pictured: matching cousins Sierra and Lily)

The boy was so excited to get his very own Batman cape (made by Omi) and matching mask (made by his wonderful aunt Merrill). Batman doesn’t smile when he’s got so much crime to fight, of course.

With talent like that from both lines, I think it’s safe to say it runs in the family! Thank you, Omi and Mimi!
