The Poofy Dress

So, it is November and I still have not finished blogging about the girls’ Easter dresses. The thing about the navy and white theme this year is that they are so versatile. It just looks classy for any season. This dress turned out so beautiful and – even if the pictures don’t show it by her refusal to smile – she loves it!

Ana White Farmhouse Twin Beds

We are just about finished with the girls’ new bedroom and I am so excited to show you what my husband made!!! Beds! Aren’t they awesome? He made custom beds for the girls using free plans from Ana White. He used the farmhouse bed plans in a twin size. Everything went pretty well (besides our paint sprayer acting up- but that is not her fault). There was one change that he made for me. The…
