Ruthie's b-day & new room pics (OT & lots of pics!)

Hey ladies. I just thought I would share some photos with you. I haven't had the chance to be creative b/c we have been working hard on Ruthie's new big girl room. It's still not completely finished. It needs a new window, the closet put together and some trim fixed, but she's able to sleep in it. We tried our best to get it put together for her b-day and show her. My aunt showed her before we could...:confused: Oh well. She was still really excited. Here's some photos of our weekend!

Preparations for the room- Yeah, that's Randall being a nerd!

The finished product-
(the bed was mine as a child. It needs to be re-finished, but it's fine for now!)

The party-


Happy Birthday song-


Her new ballerina outfit-

All ready for bed in her big girl bed!

Snuggling-

Waking up this morning! She did amazing through the night! I was so proud of her! Now if only she'd lay down right now for her nap!

Thanks for looking!

She looks so grown up in her big girl bed, and that bedding is adorable.

PS, you could cut some white vinyl circles and put them on the bed wall and I think it would really make her bedding pop even more.

You did an amazing job! I love her red walls with the chair rail... and her bedding is gorgeous! She can grow into that for a long time! (I'd even like it for myself!) Smile You and Randall are so cute...those remodeling pics would make a great layout! The birthday cake was so pretty! Did you make it? Her party dress is darling. My favorite of all these has to be that last one...so sweet in her big girl bed! TFS these with us Sadie. Ruthie is beautiful!!!!!

wow! her room looks awesome! I love how she's using your bed. (I sleep in my bed when we visit my parents :lol:) And I dig her comforter/quilt set. She's adorable in all of the party pictures, love the ballerina! She looks like such a big girl!! Wish we lived close enough so Natalie and Ruthie could play together.

Her room looks great! The walls go so good with the bedding. I am planning on doing chair rails in my little one's bedrooms once I find a bedding set for my dd, both brown on the bottom, then his will be blue on top and hers will be pink.

That cake looks great, looks like Ruthie had a good birthday. And that purple outfit with the tutu is adorable!

Everything about the pics is adorable. I really like the colors and patterns you chose for her bedding. It really is something she can grow with.
She looked adorable at the party. She's always so bright eyed!

That's a neat idea. I haven't finished hanging stuff on the walls yet. I want to make a few things. I'll have to think outside the box! Biggrin

I didn't make her cake. My cousin did. She makes them on the side, and she did an amazing job! I wish I would have taken a good before pic. I know she'll have one, so I am not that worried. I can't wait to make some LO's using those pics of remodeling! As for the dress, it came from Wal-Mart! :eek: I know! I just had to buy it. It looks so adorable with boots! Thanks for all the compliments!

They would have a ball wouldn't they!? What's funny is, I HATED girly things. I would have died if someone bought me a tutu!

Thanks! I don't know if I even have the energy to do anything else. Lol I am exhausted. Maybe after Randay comes I'll have more energy! I LOVE owls. It's something I collect b/c our school mascot was the owl, and our school was consolidated in 2005. That owl on my cabinet came from my G-ma who passed away almost a year ago, so it's something very special to me.

Thanks ladies for all the compliments. You are all too sweet! Biggrin

Sadie's room looks really nice! I love the picnic table in the corner. She is such a cutie. Is that a curios george doll I see in the bottom of the last pic?
