Some Before and After

We aren't finished with this room completely yet, but everyone has been asking for before and after pictures, so since it is the room that is the closest to being finished I decided to just go ahead and post these. All we have left to do is paint the trim, which will just be a little whiter than it currently is. So, here is the before: and after:
Same room, other side. Before:After:
Honestly, I am having so much fun I can't stand it! My body hurts all over, but I can't seem to sit and rest for very long since there is so much to do.

Shannon turned three on the 18th of this month. We had the party in American Fork so that her Grandma could be there, as she is still bed-bound.All of my sisters are laughing at my horrible first attempt at a princess cake. It's a little small because I thought I had two cake mixes, but I didn't. Who cares, though. Shannon loved it! She looks terrible in the pictures because by this time she had been playing with her cousins and she was very tired. You can also see the nice hives she gets on her face from being around dogs.We invaded Grandma's bedroom to unwrap presents. She got some really fun stuff, but was too tired to get very excited.
This is her Tinkerbell dress that she loves to wear. The neighbors saw her in it the other day and asked if it was her Halloween costume. I guess they don't understand girls and dress-ups.
