Tomorrow is a holiday in our house.
It's on the calendar.
We take off work early.
We grill out and have lots of goodies to snack on.
We'll eat Peanuts and Hot Dogs and Ice Cream from our Cincinnati Reds cap bowls.
We love baseball...
and especially our Cincinnati Reds!!
They boys are deciding which shirt to wear.
Bruce, Votto, Phillips, Cueto, or Rolen.
They have them all... in red or black.
I've got my flip-flops ready.
Just need to paint the toes.
We surprised Austin last summer and redecorated his room one weekend when he was staying with his grandparents. His room was originally a peach color. We got by telling him it was "light orange" for long enough. Our boys have more OSU and Reds stuff than we have room for. So, it was only fitting to keep with similar colors and stick with the sports theme.
The pennants in the first picture were something I found at a local store years ago. I snatched them, just wasn't sure what to do with them at the time. So, when we redecorated his room I wanted to incorporate them somehow. I decided to hot glue little clothespins on the backs of each one and hang them from twine in his window. Austin separated them between the two leagues... American and National. Now he can move them around and keep track of their standings all year. He's all about the stats!! (I've recently bought gray blinds that hang under the pennants, too, for privacy. They just aren't in these pictures.)
This old printers drawer use to hold my mom's miniature collection. I thought it would be perfect next to Austin's desk so he could display some of his Lego and Halo guys. It's usually empty... as they are often found scattered about the house.
Just thought I'd share a quick peek inside his room.
I'm off to bed now.
Can't wait for 4:05 p.m. tomorrow!
Sweet dreams of home-runs...
