Picture Perfect

We've been in our new house for about a year now. A few months back, we decided that we should probably start putting some pictures on the walls. I'm a typical parent. I think my kids are beautiful and have countless pictures of them. The difficulty comes in deciding what to do with them.

For example, school pictures can be tricky to display when you have nine kiddos. We used to get the 8x10 of each of the children and hang them up on the wall. We are blessed with a large home, but finding that kind of wall space is tricky! So, I decided to down-size this year and got the 5x7 of each child and picked up some combination frames at IKEA.

3 groupings of 3 - looks good, no?!

Here's how they look walking down the hall towards the loft.

Similarly, I shrunk down tub pictures of the kids. At nine months, I have a tub picture taken which is totally cute! We used to have 8x10's on the wall in super nice, matchy-matchy frames. But, alas, the good Lord has blessed us abundantly and the 8x10's took up too much space. So, I shrunk them down to 5x7's and purchesed some more white frames from IKEA.

Agnes' will be added in about 6 months when she has her 9 month photo shoot. For now, the cute little duckies will have to do!
Here's how the grouping looks as you walk into the half bath on our main level.

It's amazing how much more homey and personal our house feels with little touches like these. Because we rented for a year and a half, we packed up all the pictures when we moved 3 years ago and didn't bother putting them up in the rental house. It's so nice to slowly make this house feel like home!

God Bless!
