We do not have much hanging on our walls. Our house was brand new when we moved into it back in 2005, and it took a long time before we committed to hanging any pictures. There is a chocolate lab painting upstairs, two train pictures in the living room, two lighthouse pictures in the downstairs bathroom, and Brett Favre in our dining room (I'm really surprised I got away with that).
I decided I'd like to have some family pictures displayed in Matthew's room. Something to hang made sense, and I wanted to have pictures from both sides of the family. At the first store I looked at, I immediately found a frame I loved.
There is plenty of ink in our printer, and I had several sheets of photo paper, so I decided to see what I could put together. I went through pictures from our wedding and from Ernie's mom and stepdad's wedding. I dedicated one side to my family and one side to Ernie's family (four pics each). I'm really happy with how it turned out.
Ernie will be hanging it in Matthew's room sometime this weekend. Well, hopefully this weekend. He has a lot of plans for things to accomplish around the house on this three-day weekend. Last night, he tore apart the front porch steps after he noticed they were unsteady. He discovered rotting wood and other fun stuff. One trip to Home Depot and lots of work fixed that though.
Once Matthew wakes up from his nap, I think a trip to a playground is in order.
