October Glory

October has been such a beautiful month! Mostly great weather, and a wonderful time with my family visiting from Idaho. :-)

Our "October Glory Maple" in all it's splendor: More front porch decor. The "mums" are a late housewarming gift from our realtor friend. :-)

While my family was here, we went to a few houses in the local tour of homes. My sister and Nathanael posed for me in the girl's nursery in my favorite house of the tour. :-)

The leaves on our maple tree were so beautiful, but shortlived. They are already half dropped off now. :-(

At the American Girl Store in Overland Park, Kansas.

I still love these dolls. ;-) "Rebecca" is my new favorite.

We had a nice little tea party on the back deck, after which we played "Authors", which is my little sister's favorite game. It is quite fun when you are as fond of books as we are. :-)

It was a little sunny outside. Ha

Last pics before the visit ended yesterday:

My dad was here for a week of my family's visit, but I didn't get any good pictures of him. :-/I think he would rather I didn't publish the ones I did get. Haha

Have a wonderful last few days of this beautiful month!

Big Boy Bunk Beds!

Teddy was outgrowing his crib, so it was time for a big boy bed! We decided to get bunk beds to save space in their room, plus kids love bunk beds. ;-)

Nathanael and Teddy, all ready for bed.

We did a little rearranging of wall decor, as well as furniture, since the Peter Rabbit quilt was hidden behind the bed. The room seems really spacious now!

Making the bed! :-)

We had the "N" and the "T" on the wall before, and Ben came up with this good idea to put them on the beds instead. I think it looks really cute. :-)
