I love little moments like this… The littles were watching videos together:
At one point, we had eight teenage girls at our home for a slumber party, and bowling… And we survived! lol The girls all seemed to have a great time, as we heard plenty of giggles coming from them throughout the evening into wee hours.

Thinking about the board & batten process on the wall, I originally thought I would do a pattern similar to this;

Here are some pieces that I love the style of… I will make ours to fit the height under the t.v. and a bit wider;
I’m even thinking a nice pop of color… Like this:
