These are the rooms that I envision in my head and what cyber utopia tells me the male children of my family should live in. Really?

I can't figure out where they put their smelly soccer cleats and gym shoes. Where are the cluttered desks and all of the "stuff" that my boys have endless supply of? I never see them carting big bunches junk up the stairs, yet it just multiplies. For my oldest, God love him, he is a "saver." Every single magazine (fishing and hot rods), every Bass Pro Shop catalog - hundreds of them. I cannot throw them out fast enough! But that's not the worst! My boy, again, God love him, in the words of his fourth grade teacher, "Loves him some good office supplies." His motto, if one is good, thousands are better. He is like an office supply doomsday prepper. No joke. My little man? It's the usual Legos and Matchbox. He is actually my "neat kid," just don't look under his bed or open his drawers. Mercy me. Please tell me this happens at your house!
So, imagine my horror when I finished our holiday decorating and walked into my eldest son's room to this...
Yes, he loves Christmas Vacation - Clark Griswald would be proud
It is quite the light show experience.
This is the desk of youngest son's room after said sleepover with their choice of reading selections.
The book makes noise. Awesome. Thank goodness it doesn't make smells. Oh wait, that is what boys are for!
Thought I would post the rooms after a bit of tidying from mom. Pinterest worthy? Maybe not, but they really love their spaces and if they do, I do too!
