We built and moved into our current house when Tucker was starting 2nd grade, Sawyer was 18 months, and Carter was only a couple of weeks from birth. When we decorated the boys rooms when we moved in, we knew that the boys rooms would have to be updated as they got older. Sawyer's room was designed with a cute little pastel quilt with airplanes, motorcycles, and firetrucks. We had airplanes hanging from the ceiling. That was 7 years ago. It was time for a redo.
If you are new to my blog, you may not understand how passionate Sawyer is about football. He is about as obsessed as a kid can get. He is never more than an arm's length away from his football. You can read more about the little football fanatic if you'd like in an earlier post called "A Boy and a Ball".
Sawyer really, really, really wanted his room redecorated. The airplanes and cars and stuff never really matched his personality at all. So, for his 9th birthday.....that is coming up this Friday.....we told him that we would redo his room. He was totally pumped about the idea.
He knew we were planning to focus on football...obviously....but he didn't know what it would look like. So.....when it arrived, we closed the door and set it up and surprised him.
He was thrilled with the choices....to say the least.
He was so happy about his room that he actually laid down on his bed and hugged it.
He is a seriously happy camper.
We built a set of "football lockers" for him with a place to hang his jerseys and shoulder pads, and a bench storage to put some of his regular clothes in. The locker is his favorite part.
I can't imagine giving him anything in the world that he would've liked any better for his birthday.
This is the best bedroom ever for our birthday boy!
