Highlights from this weekend

About two weeks ago, I asked some neighbors and looked on Craigslist for tickets for Ray for the UNC/Notre Dame game. Not that we are fans of either, Ray just really wanted to go to at least one college football this year, and I thought that would be a good game (and it was). His birthday is four days after mine, so that was going to be his birthday present. I had given up looking for tickets as no one had any. A few of our neighbors have season tickets, and my one neighbor ended up being sick, so Ray got to go. And yes, we pulled for UNC. After all, Virginia Tech has already beat them this season...

I spent the day driving all over Raleigh. Ashley had an away football game to cheer at on the other side of Raleigh from where we live, then we met our friends who lives that way as well for dinner. This is my best friend from college and her daughter who is nine months older than Ashley. Ashley wanted to spend the night, so she did, although I did get a call at 9:30pm from her saying she wanted to come home. Between my friend and I, we calmed her down and she was fine. Actually, my friend calmed her down and then her daughter started crying (her husband was out of town and her daughter got sad...). Drama with girls, all drama.

Sunday I taught Sunday school, and then we went looking for a bed at Rooms to Go kids for Audrey. I think part of her problem with going to sleep at night is she hates her toddler bed. So we found this bed:

And of course Audrey loved it, I loved it. The price is right (I am forfeiting any birthday money to go towards the purchase - hint - parents, money is okay by me for my birthday).

There is just one problem with it. It won't fit in Audrey's room. Audrey has the smallest bedroom out of the three bedrooms. Ashley's is the biggest, then the guest room, then Audrey's. It would work perfect in Ashley's room. Plus, the walls in Ashley's room are already pink. We asked Ashley if she cared about switching rooms, and she doesn't. I told her she would get new curtains and a bedspread if she switched rooms. Has anyone else had their kids switch rooms? Our only other problem with the switcheroo is Ashley's bed. It is a daybed we got at Ikea a few years ago. We don't know if it would make it being taken apart to get out of the room and into the new room (it barely made the move from Virginia to North Carolina). I am willing to try and just keep my fingers crossed it works.

I LOVE the bed!! I did make the mistake of reading this post with Morgan on my lap and when she saw the bed? She shrieked SO loud, I think my eardrums ruptured!! I've now heard "Mama? I luff that bed!" four times in less than 2 minutes.

that looks EXACTLY like Eeyore's FLEXA bed.

I had to switch rooms with my sister when I was a kid and my parents made up give up our furniture so they wouldn't have to move it. I was so pissed - I wanted to keep my desk and dresser and bed - and I STILL remember it 30 years later so whatever you do, move it all! Tehehehehehehe.

that bed is adorable!!

but it looks like the deal might be, new curtains, new bedspread and new bed, too! :)

I absolutely LOVE that bed! And for a minute I thought you were going to put both girls in the same room together....is that even an option, you know instead of switching rooms around?

I hope Ray had fun at the game!?

How cool is THAT bed?!? Just realized that Marin will have the biggest of the bedrooms, haha.

We've switched the boys around before, and will again this winter when Marin begins sleeping in her own room. I usually just talk it up and make it sound like the best fun ever, and there aren't any problems.
