Redecorating and Sunday pics

Now that I FINALLY got Christmas all down and put away I have been making some tiny tweaks around the house.  We have lived in this house for seven years this week and I'm one of those people who gets rooms fixed and then leaves them that way forever.  I laugh at one of my good friends Tracy because she LITERALLY changes at least one room in her house a week - I'm talking paint, moves furniture, changes things out. I don't know where she gets the energy.
Anyway - I guess I have the seven year itch with our house because I've decided to make small changes.  I have a big round table in Harper's room and a small one in our living room and I decided I wanted to swap those out.  Harper needs more room and our living room needs a bigger table. So that was my first change. It's a subtle move. I also hung up the neatest picture I got from Naptime Diaries (one of my sponsors this month - she makes the BEST scriptures that can be framed!)
 Sweetest verse for a little girl
 I've been kind of tired of my mantle but I just don't know how to do mantles. I took down that big iron thing  and just put stuff I had up there. I had a wreath and I put a big empty frame around it. I'm still not 100% sure I like this........I'm working on it.
I moved the big table into our living room - I think the size looks better. I had ordered a burlap table cloth (it's wrinkled - ignore that fact) and I like the way it looks. I had bought that big frame several months ago and never printed a picture to put in it or had taken time to hang it so I finally got that done (well Scott did the hanging).  I like how it turned out.  I have a few more things on my list that I want to change.  And then in 7 MORE years - I might change again.

The girls had the sweetest dresses on today for church so I had to try and take their picture.  Harper is FINALLY starting to agree to pictures.  She will say "cheese" but she won't look at you or smile. She mostly looks down and says that.  And Hollis won't sit still if you put her on the floor.

Oh I just adore this age! It's hard but it's the sweetest age! I could just eat her up with a spoon!

Scott and I worked the "older" babies room today at church.  These are the walkers - 2 years.  I realized that in just a couple of months they will bump Hollis up to this room. I was watching all the little kids toddling around and couldn't believe Hollis would be there so soon.  It was just yesterday I was putting her in the nursery for the first time.  Actually it was just yesterday I was putting Harper in the nursery for the first time.  I told Scott last night that this summer and then this fall - Harper can go to VBS, preschool choir and AWANAS.  Wasn't she just my little baby? 

Hope y'all are having a good Sunday .......... I'm going to go sing "Butterfly Kisses" and "Sunrise, Sunset" to my self and cry.
