I love buying old chairs that need to be redone. I found this chair at a garage sale this summer. It was pretty sturdy and I liked the shape, but it was worn out. I re stained it and added new a new cushion and fabric. It is definitely improved! This is the chair that Julia snatched up for her room.

I am getting ready for our baby and it's fun to have something new even if it is our tenth. I was really getting tired of the bed skirt I had. It was kind of short and I could always see the stuff that got stored under the crib(box of diapers, clothes or toys ). I decided I would make my own skirt out of my old king sized sheets.

This is the best cheesecake ever! I love everything about it. We sometimes add fruit to the top, or a raspberry sauce, but you can also do chocolate. My aunt gave us this recipe and it has become a family favorite.
So here it is:

Does anyone remember the teen's room we did last year? Well Julia has been talking about changing the decor in her room, so at Christmas she got a new bedspread. Her bedspread and some of her wall art went to her younger sister, who was happy to get it, and Julia started looking for ideas on decorating her room once more. I'm happy to say she came up with some really cute ideas that we could work with, and we didn't spend very much either!

It is cold here this week! Our kids are getting an extra long vacation and they are enjoying it along with the deep snow. My husband even got a day off work, which was nice since he was so busy before the holidays. We' re spending time playing, cooking up new things, decorating and moving things around in some of the girl's rooms.
I'm so glad to be done with the room I started re-doing for two of our girls a while back! If you have been following along we were shuffling some of the kids around to make room for our tenth baby who is due in April. We found out it's a girl! That makes eight girls and two boys.

Happy New Year everyone! I'm so excited to show you the headboard I made for our girl's room. I had been looking everywhere for a headboard. I looked on Craigslist, resale shops, and Goodwill. Nothing anywhere. So then I started to think about using the foot board I had already turned into a chalkboard.
