Sweet Dreams!

For Jacob's 13th birthday we asked him if would want to move downstairs to the extra bedroom. Jacob and Jared have been sharing a room for 5 years and we thought Jacob might need his "teenage" space. I really was against it at first. The room downstairs was a great room for all my extra stuff. The cradle that I slept in and my kids, antique hope chest, antique telephone table that belonged to my gradmother, special pictures from my Aunt Jonnie and Uncle Don, and not to mention we all considered that "grandma's room" for when she came to visit. I didn't want to give it up. It was my Kentucky room. But, I'm really glad they both have their own room now. Jacob and Jared actually hang out in there which is bringing them A LITTLE closer together. Of course, it was an easy decision on the theme of his room. He is a huge UGA fan (like you couldn't tell). Go DAWGS! We still need a few things in there like a chest or dresser but it's complete for now. He had a tough time adjusting to sleeping down there at first but now he's doing great. That's a good thing because school starts Monday!

oops. I wrote Jared and meant to write Jacob. I get confused because my nephews are Jared and Jacob and you have Jacob and Jared. Anyway! Happy Birthday JACOB!
