Christmas Surprises

Two years ago, I wrote about my selfish Christmas confession-I love watching my family open gifts.  I love the expressions on everyone’s faces.  For the 2015 Christmas, we decided that there are not a whole lot of items that any of the kids truly need.  However, the kids are all in “new” rooms.  They play musical rooms.  I think they are finally settled, so we decided to give each child a “new”room.

Each room got a coat of fresh paint and some new wall hangings.  I had a blast working for the past two months prepping each room and making each room speak to the child.  The kids knew that I was painting (I couldn’t really hide that part), but they had no idea about the updates.  We sent them to their grandparents’ house last weekend to finish up.

I seriously felt like I was on the home make-over show.  I have no clue how they get through a whole house in one week!  These three rooms were exhausting to complete!  The result was priceless.  They each ran through their rooms and took in every piece!

Now, I am not sure how exciting Christmas morning will be-we may have to look at the pictures! 🙂

  1. THAT was nice. My daughter has been asking to have her room painted for over a year now. The paint is literally chipping (not sure why–if they painted over paper or what???). I don’t have Java Script, so I’ll have to come back later on a different computer. 😦 But I’m only trying to imagine. You sound like such a good mom!!!!
