Aaron's Room

Kelly is doing a tour of nurseries and kids' rooms on her blog today and I thought I would join in. I kept meaning to take pictures of Aaron's room since we moved and I haven't done it yet. These two pictures are the view from his doorway. The people who lived here before had their son in this room and had done it in a Western Theme. The woman, Alli, had painted the barbed wire border on the walls and she left the horseshoes and stars hanging for us. Aaron's nursery had been done in Burgundy and Denim and it matched perfectly, so we went with this theme.
The crib skirt, valence and diaper stacker were made by my friend Ann before Aaron was born. I ordered the checked pillows to match and the cream pillow was one I had. I says 'Always Kiss Me Goodnight'. We got the Cream quilt in Gruene. The shelf was mine and it holds Aaron's
Birth Announcement and some Willowtree pieces we received for him. Dad and Sheri sent the letters that spell Aaron's name. They were white and Jory painted them to match. I had this coat hanger and the knobs looked really good with Aaron's room so we decorated it with Western Gear that Mimi gave us. We are doing a Western Theme for Aaron's 2nd birthday party and we found really cute invitations with horseshoes that look just like his room. I am going to put this cowboy hat on him and take a picture to have put on a cake for the party! Below is a picture of a barbed wire switch cover that Kimmie found and the prayer that we bought Aaron in Washington, DC before he was born.

This was Papa John's dresser (so was the bed). It is decorated with lots of western items, but you can't see them very well. The picture frame was made by a friend of mine. It says 'Buckaroo' and matches the room. There is a holder in the shape of a saddle that Mimi gave us that holds lots of Aaron's little things.

This wagon was Grandma Sheri's. It holds two monogrammed blankets that Aaron loves.

The closet has horseshoe door handles that Kimmie found.
So there's the tour. I also put a couple of new family friendly dinner recipes here.
