Over Christmas vacation Scott and I stopped at the Ikea in San Fransisco!!
Seriously, I see beams of glorious light and hear choirs of angels when we pull into the parking lot of one of these stores! Um, I really do! Scott does NOT share my love affair with Ikea.
I love the bedroom set-ups! Isn't this one precious?! I am getting ready to re-do my bedroom in white, so this one really made me anxious to get started on my room makeover. On this trip we bought Anna a bed (headboard with footboard for $87!!!)

See, I told you this is random.
Lindsay "wow-ed" us with her spelling one day while we were at Grandma's house. It really IS exciting when she does something like this. We never thought she would learn to spell or read.

Keeping with the random tone of this post, here is a picture of my nephew Gavin's room with his little Christmas tree. Beckie is not afraid of painting like I am. I LOVE all the different colors she has in her house.
Lindsay loves her counting bears, but she always wondered why there were no orange ones. Our dear friend (and babysitter) Shannon teaches at a pre-school and found some orange bears in a catalog. She ordered them and gave them to Lindsay for Christmas. How fun is that?!
Lindsay has lots of new "countable" toys. I have been cleaning out closets and organizing toys this week so I rotated some of her favorite things out so she can play with the new stuff for a while. This makes "old" toys seem fun and new again when you rotate them back in.
I am working on simplifying my life. Less is more (and easier to keep clean!).

That is funny that he is sad to be in Ikea...we have one close to us but I've only been once! Not a huge fan but you can't beat their prices for some things! My husband refuses to even step foot in that place at all!
