We have finally made progress on both the boys room and the baby room!!! I finally don't feel stressed out about it anymore. After almost 3 years in our house we have finished the boys room! It isn't how I wanted it, but at this point I am just happy it is done!
We went with an old car theme, so I painted the room black and white and then we threw up some color with the different car pictures. The cars above are actually lights which is really cool but I wish they were battery operated so that the cords weren't hanging down. We are thinking about just cutting the cord off and not using them as lights. We'll see. All I need to do now is touch up the chair rail with white paint.

Kylee's room still isn't done, but it is close. We still need to paint her dresser, hang a couple more things and get the bedding on, but the paint (thank heavens) is done. I decided against hanging the letters with ribbon because, well frankly, I was just to lazy to do it. Leaving the ribbon on the letters and putting them up how I did was so much easier for me. I know I'm lazy but I like it and I got the stamp of approval from that husband of mine so we are all good.
A very special THANK YOU goes out to my bro. in law Garrett for deciding to come over at 10P.M. and work until 2:30A.M putting up the chair rail in both rooms. You rock Garrett!! We couldn't have done it with out you (and mostly because you provided everything but the chair rail) :)

You have my stamp of approval for the letters too, everyone hangs them up with ribbon so it's a clever twist. I'm excited for her to see her room, she will love it.
I think the lights are cool too, I can see what you are saying about the cords, but I still think they are cool as lights.
I wish you were closer so you could bring your boys over to play in our treehouse.
Love ya!
