Abraham's new room

Last weekend we decided to use the last of some "house" money to finish one of the bedrooms in the house... yup, Abraham's! We had seen bedroom furniture that we liked at IKEA a while ago and decided to just bite the bullet and get it. We ended up with a great loft bed with storage/play space underneath. Got him a dresser to match with drawers and shelves -- which actually has TONS of space in it for his clothes and other stuff. We got him some storage for his 1,000's of cars and toys and stuff...

Michael put up shelves over the dresser and on the wall to the right of the window but I don't have pics of that yet.

Needless to say, the boy L.O.V.E.S. his new room and has been very eager to go to bed.. for the most part! It totally suits him and we are glad to be able to get him a big boy room!

My Big Boy Bed!!

Bed with storage for books beside it and toys under it

Michael put up red shelves above the dresser and above the ugly white shoe racks (which ended up in the closet!)

The tent is a highlight for him... and the moon light on the wall... and the cool sheets and comforter from IKEA as well.

Daddy put nearly all of it together. Thanks Daddy! :)

A Daddy, his boy and the puppy... heaven!

One of the things we truly love about this house is all the open space for us and Abraham to enjoy.. and now Clancy! Next to our house is an open space that is for community use: walking dogs, playing ball, etc. Behind it is woods with a stream at the bottom of the hill. Imagine the thrill it is for my little man and his puppy to take off with Daddy when we get home from school to see what they can find! It bring such joy to my heart to see them off together! It gives me time to get dinner on the table without Clancy being right under foot.

It is so completely evident that this is the house that God had for us. We have met so many great people in the neighborhood -- 2 other guys who like to fly fish. One guy has been over a few times to tie flies with Michael even. It is a great community and we are blessed to have our own place to call home!
