During the first week of December, we girls decorate our rooms for Christmas.  “Decorating”  usually involves rearranging some of the furniture, too! We have made it a tradition to close the doors and not let anybody else, besides whoever’s room it is, see the room until it is completely decorated.  When it is finished, we wait until the evening and turn on all the Christmas lights, light candles, and play Christmas music.  Everybody else gathers outside the door and we open it to show everyone : )

Leah and I took all of one evening, trying to decide on how to rearrange ours…it was so perfect the way it was, and yet we wanted CHANGE!    The end result was that we found a new perfect way for all the furniture to fit nicely into our room!

So now, we are going to let you be a part of the “showing”  : D  Although I must say, it’s even better in real life!

This is what you see as you first walk in…

 

         We took both of our shelves, and made a bookshelf out of it!  We have enough books, as you can see…and there’s more in the closet!  Actually, I don’t think you could really ever have too many books, do you?!

          Leah and I are both very happy with how the mirror turned out 🙂 It used to hang vertically on our door in our old room.  We took it off and Daddy attatched a wire so that we could hang it on our wall 🙂  At first it didn’t have the doilies over the top and it looked so bare.  Leah came up with the doily idea and it was perfect!

 

I hope you enjoyed the “showing” as much as we enjoyed showing it!

Merry Christmas!

    What a beautiful room! The Christmas lights are just like icing on the cake, because that room would be lovely even without them. Thank you for sharing!

    Hello,

    I'm new to your website but I'm really enjoying it. I love books and I'm always curious what other people are reading. I couldn't enlarge your picture of your bookshelf so I'm wondering if you could tell me (or do a post) about what's on it?

    Thanks so much,

    Julie from Maine

    Hi Jessica, I like your room organized that way much better than the other way :). And the lights and Christmas decorations are very pretty :). My room…um, well, does not look that great. But, I have an excuse, I sleep with a 2, 5, and 11 year old..and you just have two adults in your room :).

    Hi!

    I'm a new reader, but I just wanted to tell you how much I love that you are sisters that love each other! that doesn't happen often…I can't say my sisters and I are there yet, but we're working on it! Thanks for the encouragement, and I love your room! do you guys share a closet? my little sister and I do, so I was wondering if you have any "words of wisdom" 🙂 again, nice to see a family that doesn't mind sharing ! (there are four of us in a room about the size of yours!) anyway, long comment, I know, but thanks!
