A couple of weeks ago we got our income tax return! We decided to buy some things that we needed and never had the money to buy before. The first big purchase we made was a new mattress for mine and Ben's bed. It is so very comfortable and I have slept wonderfully every night for the past 2 weeks! I am so excited about it! After that, we bought a new computer because Ben needed something faster for all of his photo work. Because our old PC still works fine, we moved it into the kids' room and took out their old broken down dresser. This meant they needed a computer desk to put their "new" computer on and printer (our new computer came with a Canon all-in-one printer that Ben very much did not want, but the price of the computer went up if you didn't take the printer....go figure!) so, the kids got the printer! Annalisa scored big with a twin size bed. She is out of her toddler bed and off of her baby bed mattress at the age of 4 1/2. You might wonder how I managed to keep her on a toddler bed that long, but it really wasn't that difficult since her toddler bed looked like a doll house. She was excited about the new bed, but the whole time we were taking her toddler bed apart she was telling it bye and telling me how much she was going to miss it. It was really sweet! The boys have never been sentimental about anything as silly as a bed! So, at Windy's request I have posted some pics of the new bed, and I added a photo of the computer in their room too! It is very nice.
