Boys Room.

For Christmas this year Dave and I had talked about moving the boys into the same room together. This past week we finally got the room all done in time to show them Christmas morning. We kept with the trains, motorcycle, airplane, car theme that we had used in Colt's bedroom and moved all of it into the bonus room. The bonus room took about 4 days to clean out and organize all the stuff, we need a bigger house (or one with more storage). We bought 2 twin mattresses, new bedding and some wall decals to decorate the room, everything else we already had. This is the boys big Christmas present, we didn't get them much else but I know they (especially Colt) will be so excited when we show them their new room tomorrow morning.
 We had these in Colt's previous room, these are on the wall to the right as you walk into the room.
This room does not have a closet besides this little storage space, luckily the boys do not have a lot of toys and everything fit perfectly.
 The reading/music corner.
The rocker was my great grandma's both the boys love sitting in it and rocking back and forth. My mom had it re-covered for me when I was pregnant with Colt.
 This is the other half of the room complete with their train table, beds and dresser. Dave spent some time while watching the Boise State game screwing all the train tracks down so the boys can't pull them up or throw them around the room. He was also the mastermind behind the room decorations, I just did what he told me too.
 Jax's bed.
We are leaving him in his crib until probably April, he sleeps so good right now and we don't want to mess with that. I know Colt will be excited to have a room buddy when he finally does make the transition.
 Colt's bed.
It is fitting that Byson is laying on his side because he takes a nap with Colt everyday on his bed.
We got the sheet sets off of Amazon and they had these wall decals that were being sold that matched them so we bought a set, there are trains, helicopters, cars, planes, motorcycles and trucks. They were the perfect addition to the room.
The boys spent the night at my parents Thursday night so Dave and I could finish their room, today we put boxes in front of the door and told Colt he couldn't use his play room (the room used to be the boys playroom and Dave's hunting/fishing room) because daddy and I were wrapping Christmas presents in there. We are letting him sleep with us tonight because Marni is here and sleeping in Colt's old room (we now have our guest room back!). We had a laid back Christmas Eve tonight, my parents came over and I made appetizers for everyone to eat, we let the boys open up their Christmas Eve pajamas and one other present. Everyone is asleep now except Dave and I, we are playing Santa and filling up the boys stockings. 
Merry Christmas Eve!
Luke 2:8:9
And there were shepherds out in the field,
keeping watch by night.
And an angel of the Lord appeared to them,
and the glory of the Lord shone around them.

Oh em gee, Care! :) I want 2 little boys just to have this room in my house. How much did they love it? So so cute. I am so happy the Mires family has 2 little guys to love and adore. And tell DAVE he gets my "wow!" from having so much input into the room. He needs to be in design, sounds like :)

I love this! I had such a good time hanging out with Colt and Jax! I wish I could be there more! Trav and I are planning on it though so hopefully it works out!
