House Pics part 1

Ok, we got our internet hooked up at the new house and it's faster, so I'm trying it out with blogger. I have a few pictures but unfortunately forgot to take befores and the listing isn't on the realty website any more for me to get the before pics.
This is a work in progress picture of the kid's bathroom. The hanging light has to go cause I could imagine walking in when the kids are supposed to be brushing teeth and find one hanging from it. :)
Before I painted it "Shallow Pond" blue, it was a very dark burnt brick color. Made it feel so much smaller than what it is.
Ok, notice the light is gone! There is now a green one that was in the kitchen mounted to the ceiling. Much better and goes with the frog theme of the room. I have yet to get the cabinet doors back on, still painting them.

On the opposite side of this picture the girls hang their towels and robes on a cute little hook too and there is a towel bar for hand towels.

Now, right across the landing from the bathroom is the boy's room. We haven't done anything to this room except fill it and install and ceiling fan/light fixture because there was nothing in their room for light, oh and rip up the carpet.Here is looking in their door.
They actually have so much more room than they did at the old house and they love it. Dakotah sleeps on bottom and Colby on top. The screen is off the window and leaning there in the pic cause we are blowing insulation into the attic from their room this evening.
Here is looking across from their bed, hopefully that dresser will stay that clean on top. ;)

Right next door to the boys is the girl's room. They have tons more room as well and actually more than the boys but, they need it! They actually play in their room and the boys play around the house or outside. We didn't do a thing in their room either except remove the carpet.

This room was already painted so stinkin cute. Here is Madi sneaking in the shot.
With this house we got the bunk beds that are in the boy's room and we had just bought the boys new bunks in the last few months so the girls who have been in toddler beds got a grand ol upgrade in room and bed. They think they are sleeping on kings compared to their toddler beds! Autumn got top and miss Madi bottom. Now we have to get them comforters that actually fit their beds. I am slowly putting my Disney princess memorabilia in their room and they are loving it.

The biggest thing about the kid's rooms....they actually have closets! At the old house there were non cause it was an old farm house and they didn't have closets in their houses back when it was built. It's a really nice upgrade!
That is all I have at the moment. I am working on getting the rest of the house put together let alone pictures taken, oh yea and life. Hang in there a bit longer and there will be more.
