Look what happens when you
blink live 365 days. Amazingly enough, their pumpkin shirts I made for last year still fit. M's is a 2T and HK's is a 3-6 months. I am not sure if these pictures make me smile because I am so in love with who these girls are becoming or if I want to just cry because time is moving so so quickly. Either way, they sure are cute. Take a good look these shirts now because I am pretty sure they won't fit in another 365 days!

HK's face says it all in several of these pictures. She's so happy in the water and covered in food. Something in this house has to be a mess at all times. Often it is the girls. HK would prefer bubbles but Matney won't get in if even one bubble is floating in the water. Silly girls.

Look who got to go to Build A Bear for the first time. Lucky HK, she gets to do everything at a much younger age than Matney. I guess some things are better when you're the younger sibling! After the train and carousel rides MoMo's been itching to get the girls to Build A Bear. When we were at the mall for Halloween she took the girls and they found out that Frosty the Snowman was coming in November. If you don't know it, HK is OBSESSED with Frosty. She loves him. So clearly we needed to go back before he sold out. Right? Especially since he lights up and has music when you take his hat on and off. If it has noise and light then MoMo and my girls think they need it!
Mom and the girls stuffed Frosty and found Karen and Hocus Pocus (the rabbit). Because we need two sets of Frosty guys...totally. We had to carry that box of critters around for days before the handle on M's finally broke and I snuck it to the trash one night. Thanks MoMo, they love them!

We recently moved Matney to a "big girl bed". Her crib converted to a toddler bed so it wasn't a total change, and we talked about it for over a week before Jared switched the front rail. Honestly, it was a hard change for me, my baby is growing up way too fast! Matney really initiated the change. She started asking for a "big girl bed like Kenzie's" (a friend of hers) and then she was walking in Target, saw Tinkerbell bedding and that was all she wrote! I fought it for a week and then, after she's told every stranger she met that she was "getting a Tinkerbell big girl bed" I headed back to Target to get what she wanted. Just know that her room is pink, PINK pink. Tinkerbell is purple. It doesn't match and it bothers me but she loves it so welcome to the family little Bell. Here are pictures of her room just before J took the rail off so that I can remember what it looked like to have my baby in a crib!
View from the front door. We did most of this in September and found great deals because the back to school dorm stuff was all on sale. I got the rug at Target and then found material to match at Fabrics and Fringehttp://fabricsandfringe.com/. I love that place! I made the pillows and lampshade to match the window treatments.
I made magnetic boards for behind one door. I wanted to use the wall space but we couldn't do much of anything because the door opens against that wall. The theme for the room was "make it without costing a fortune". For these I got sheet metal at Lowe's ($10 each) and covered them in fabric ($3 each). Then Jared hung them on the wall. I made magnets with flat marbles and glued scrapbook paper on the back. The same paper is on the wall and on the boxes on the shelves so it all coordinates! Each girl has a board with her initial (Hobby Lobby letters covered with scrapbook paper and magnets hot glued to the back). They were about $17 each.
One side of the room - their doll house, table and the bug bean bags (holding the door open so that the girls don't try to slam it and pinch fingers).
