Cheer Camp

Cara got to do the basketball cheer camp this year.  It was a quick one; practice Monday, Tuesday, and perform at the game Tuesday night.  My pictures weren't that clear because of the moving and jumping around.  I love the t-shirts for this one.  Lots of times they aren't that cute, but these were.

Cara, Lonna, and Kinsey after their performance. :)

Cara's Bedroom Update

When we built our house 7 years ago, this was Ali's room.  She chose to have a hot pink accent wall, which she loved.  Me, not so much.  The pink is so bright that it casts a neon pink shadow out into the hallway. 
Now it's Cara's room and this is what it looks like with Cara's bedding choice.  It's looked like this for the past year and a half since Ali left for college.

I've been dying to change up this room and get it a little bit calmer and more relaxing.  We bought an antique bed and had it refinished.  It was completed last weekend, so this weekend it was time for a room update.  We painted the accent wall the same color as the other walls and switched out the bed.
This is what it looks like now:

I love it so much!  I'm on the hunt for an antique nightstand that matches the bed and a chippy stool to put on the other side of the bed.  I also have my eye on a sign for over the bed.  It's on etsy by "House of Belonging,"  but I need to save up for it.

First house update project for 2015 done!  Next project:  paint the laundry room!

Happy New Year!

I got an antique pedal car for Christmas.  I plan on keeping it out on the front step and putting geraniums in it, but it's also fun for pictures.  I didn't get great ones the other day, because it was 19 degrees outside, so the littles weren't that cooperative. :)

Happy New year from Cara and Jake!
