Grace and Emily's Room

I have two special guest bloggers today! My daughters, Grace (9) and Emily (7) would like to show you around their bedroom. Up until a few weeks ago they had bunk beds but they begged asked nicely if Dad would take them apart for hopefully the last time!

Grace says: I like my bunk beds down because I get to sleep by the window. :0)

Emily says: I like having my bunk beds put down because I was getting claustrophobic up on the top bunk.


Grace says: The bedspread on my bed was made by my Grandma for my mom when she was little. My American Girl doll, Molly sits at the head of the bed. The horse pillow was made by my Aunt, Melissa.


Emily says: My mom made my ballerina pillowcase for me and my Aunt Melissa made the knitted rose pillow.


Grace says: I have lots of books and I love to read! One of my favorite books is On the Banks of Plum Creek by Laura Ingalls Wilder. My mom and I are reading Jane of Lantern Hill by Lucy Maud Montgomery together.

Emily says: I like to read Biscuit the Dog books and Henry and Mudge books. I like when my mom reads me stories. We are reading The Secret Garden for school.


Emily says: I keep lots of special dolls and toys at the end of my bed. My best friend is Christmas Mouse. She is red and white and I got her in Tennessee when I was 2.


Grace says: This is where I do my art. I like drawing and painting. In history I am learning about the artists, Michaelangelo and Raphael. When I grow up I want to train horses and in my spare time I'll paint.


Grace says: Thank you for looking at my room!

Emily says: Thank you for looking at my bedroom pictures!

Emily and Grace you have beautiful rooms.
You have very neat things, and you keep them neat.
I hope you enjoy not having bunk beds anymore. It is always fun to change up a room.

Sweet!

Mrs. C said...

Grace and Emily,
You girls have a lovely room! You two can come over any time and help Bookworm clean up her bedroom. LOL!

My two younger girls share a room with bunkbeds, too. I think you'll be even closer sisters as you grow up because you share a room.

Thank you for the tour!

Blessings,
Mrs. C

Grace and Emily,
Your bedroom and all your special treasures are wonderful! It looks like a room that would be just the perfect place to cozy up all the girls for a good reading and relaxing session...and I know at least one girl who would probably love to come and participate...and her mom too! LOL
Thank you for sharing!
Hugs from GA,
Amy

Tracy said...

Dear Emily and Grace,
I love your room. It is very cheerful, and it looks like you take good care of it. I'm glad that you got to take your bunkbeds down. It does make less room to play, bu tit looks so grown up!

SiouxSue said...

Wow, Grace and Emily. I love your room. It's beautiful. I'm so impressed by the books you are reading and the things you are learning. I was a teacher for a long time, and I think you 2 are doing a great job. Keep it up. You are extremely fortunate to have a mom and dad who love you enough to give you a beautiful, Christian home and to teach you.

Jungle Mom said...

What acute room and what darling girls!

Kelley said...

Great post girls...you have a darling bedroom!
Thanks for sharing the pictures with us!!

LBP said...

Grace and Emily, Your room is what all little girls dream of. It is absolutely beautiful. By the way, Jane of Lantern Hill is one of my most favorite books of all time. Did you know that there is a Jane of Lantern Hill movie? I have it and it is very good. You should beg, I mean ask your parents to let you rent it!

Christine said...

The beds look lovely side by side! Your room is so fun and cozy. Thank you for sharing.

annewithane65 (Kim) said...

Dear Grace and Emily, you have a very nice bedroom. You keep it very nice and neat. I really like your beds.

Grace, I love the books by Laura Ingalls Wilder and Lucy Maude Montgomery. In fact, my daughter Emily was named after the book Emily of New Moon written by Lucy Maude Montgomery.

Emily, The Secret Garden is one of my all time favorite boks. I also really liked the movie on PBS.

Thank you for sharing your room with us!

Kitty said...

What a pretty room you both have, and you are taking such good care of it, too!! You are already learning to be good little homemakers!! :-)

Gena said...

That was such a sweet post! I love twin beds - they remind me of being little. My younger girls have bunks that we took apart, as well.

Your girls' rooms are so tidy! I know they love being in there. Thank you for showing us another part of your beautiful home.

Heather said...

Emily and Grace - your room looks fantastic - it is always so neat and tidy? Our daughter's room always looks like something blew up or a toy factory disaster scene, but she is learning to keep things a bit neater! Maybe if she had a sister to share her room with she would learn to put things away! I hope you gave your Daddy a special hug for putting your bunkbeds just the way you wanted them - it can be hard on a Daddy to do all that lifting!
Thanks for letting us visit your room girls!

Mrs.Garcia said...

Kelli, Grace and Emily's Bedroom is so lovely. Thank you for sharing the photos of there room with us. I know that I can use some of the ideas you have used in there room in our Darling Daughter's Room as well.
PS. Our Darling Daughter wanted me to Tell Grace and Emilie she loved that they had Bunk Beds. She is begging for Bunk Beds for her room.
God Bless,
Mrs.Garcia

Jennifer said...

Grace, "On the Banks of Plum Creek" is one of my all time favorite books as well! I still love reading those books.

Emily, the Secret Garden is also a great book. It's one of those that you can read over and over again!
