In the Jungle Room...

After we redid the girl's room, Aaron decided his room was old and told me he wanted a new room, too. I finally got around to doing it for his birthday. The boys decided they wanted a jungle room.

I used the monkeys from our website and Colette found the other animals online. Heather designed the monograms.

I found some clipart of leaves and just did a bunch in different sizes and colors for the trees.

My mom found this awesome bed online. The dresser fits right underneath it. Can you guess who was jealous he didn't get one? Don't worry, his will be coming for his Birthday...or sooner. For now, he at least has the matching bedding.

I made a mini-closet under the back half.

And behind the dresser is a little extra space we are using for food storage. Awesome!

Happy Birthday Aaron

Aaron turned 6 on Monday and he couldn't have been more excited. He has been counting down the days for the past least. On Sunday, he got a watch from Grandma Marchant, and then started counting down the minutes 'til he got to open his presents. He requested a jungle cake, which was perfect, because it went along with his new jungle room (pictures to come). He received lots of great gifts from our family. And, since his feet were hitting the bottom of his toddler bed, we finally replaced it with a cool twin-sized loft bed (which left two siblings rather upset). Oh, he is getting so big. We love you, Aaron.
