Closet Organizer

We made Ashlynn a closet organizer last August and it has been the envy of our house. It is pretty cool and so Megan has wanted one ever since she saw the one for Ashlynn. I like how it looked, but it really was for small kids so I knew that if we did one for Megan it would have to be different. Both of there rooms are small so I knew that we need some kind of dresser in Megan's. I wanted drawers but knew they would be hard to build and hard to find someone that would build them for me for not to much money. The answer was Ikea, we went and bought the drawers there and then build the organizer around it. When we were looking for the dresser I saw one that I really liked that had handles on it so we added handles to it and it makes it pretty cool. The other thing that I wanted was for her to be able to store all of her things that needed to go one it without any problems. We made the bottom shelf a little bit taller and I really like how it turned out.

Carnival Week

This year for carnival I had to pay a lot more attention and actually participate and make sure my kids participated in the weekly events. I would say that each day was a huge success. For Monday we had Mustache Monday. Grandma made shirts for the girls with mustaches on them, they turned out really cute and they were actually a very last minute idea. Then this week we had crazy hair day, my picture didn't turn out but it was some pretty crazy hair. Megan found the idea of putting her hair in a star and then adding glow sticks to it. I am sure not the best idea for class but she had a lot of fun doing it. We also had a decade day and that one was a lot of fun to do. The pictures pretty much tell it all. Good thing for Grandma being able to sew this at the last second. She did have the poodle skirt on hand. Next we had pajama day, pretty easy except my kids don't like to wear pajamas that they wear every night so they usually get new one to wear to school. Last but not least was Super hero day. Again grandma came to the rescue. Megan had a shirt that we bought but for Ashlynn I found a picture on Pinterest and grandma made it for her. She loves it and plans to be Batman for Halloween. There you have it Carnival and I am so very glad that it over. Can't wait until next year.
