The Reveal

So when we first moved to our new house in October, 2007, we had two little girls with one more on the way (although we hadn't told anyone yet!).  Our new house had a small room downstairs, a small room upstairs and a larger room upstairs.  Because we only had two and a half year old Lydia and almost one year old Bethany, they went in the little room upstairs and we moved into the larger upstairs room.

Over time we added Havilah, then Ella, then Esther to that tiny room.  Then it seemed VERY tiny!!!

Last year we moved downstairs (I know, I STILL haven't posted pictures of our room!!!) so this fall we finally got the girls moved into their larger, more finished bedroom. They are loving it!!!

I always dreamed of having verses on my children's walls.  Since these verses are the ones we have talked about the most as they are heading to bed we thought it would be fitting to have them on the wall for them to see every day. 

I've kept these calender pages from when I was fifteen years old.  I knew I wanted to hang them in my daughter's room some day.

Ella sleeps on the bottom bunk.

Bethany and Havilah share the top!

Lydia has her own bed for the first time in almost five years.  She has loved sharing a bed all those years, but is excited to have her own space now.

Esther of course is still in the crib.  She loves her new room!

It is so nice to have us all moved into our new rooms.  Now if only we can figure out how to keep it as clean as this!

Beautiful! I love seeing pictures like this. Good luck on keeping it clean. You need to show us how you keep clothes for five little girls organized. :lol: ;)
