Grandpa Dean Comes to Visit



We were so excited to have Grandpa Dean here for a visit! 
We miss living closer and getting to see him all the time.
It was so great to have him here.

He was so kind and asked me to draw a closet plan up for the kids rooms so he could custom build some closet organizers.
WOW! 
Have you SEEN my closets? 
Great spaces. But wasted space. 
So it was such a blessing to have his help for these!

Before pix~
Girl's closet
 
Yes this is really all the stuff I had in there.
I will admit I need to go to CA
Clothing Anonymous!
Yes, my name is Bonnie I am addicted to clothes!
There...I said it!
But in my own defense. 
NINETY % or MORE of my children's clothes come from the DI or second hand clothing stores.


Boys room....
 
Caleb's closet is huge! So all the toys have been stored in his room!


During.....
Look at these HARD WORKERS!!



Girls room AFTER~



They get to keep their own toys in their own room now!
(And bonus...more space for more clothes..shhhh...don't tell)

Boys Room During~
 Grandpa DEAN hard at work!

And after....
Look at all that space. Even a built in computer station!
Hooray!!

All I have to do is paint them. But I will save that for summer time.

Some other fun pictures of the kids and Grandpa.
(Dang we didn't get any with grandpa and the older two. Next time)


What a messy face!!

Thanks so much for coming Grandpa. 
For your help on the beautiful closet shelves, for the great conversations, and memories!
Can't wait for your next visit!
