Fun decorations

Mark and I went on a date last night, first we went to eat Thai food, the kids aren't a fan of it, but we love it! We both got a big plate of Pad Thai, and then got in the car and said to each other "now what??" We drove all over downtown just talking and looking. We ended up clear out at IKEA. We ended up getting the kids each a really cool decoration for their bedrooms. When we got home we told them "on Saturday morning you need to get up and clean your rooms, we are talking really clean! Dusting, vacuuming, organizing..."

The kids were so interested in what we got them, but we wouldn't tell them until the rooms were done. They did most of the work, but I got in there and helped, and four hours later they were ready for their new decorations.

Jessie got a new light fixture. IKEA has the cutest lights! They are all very inexpensive too, which is a bonus. Jessie was beyond happy about it, she has wanted one of these lights for a long time. The bedrooms in our house have vaulted ceilings, so it was fun that the light actually fits in the room well. I think the light is 30" across... it's BIG.
Curren got a hanging chair! It hangs from the rafter of his bedroom, and he can read or play the Nintendo DSi in it. He thought it was super cool.
It was fun cleaning and fixing up their bedrooms a little bit. We really want to paint their rooms too, but haven't been able to do it yet... maybe next time!
