New bedrooms and a 'new to us' TV

Bobby's parents have been so wonderful to the kids. The wanted them to have new bedroom furniture for their new house. It is our Christmas and their Christmas all rolled into one, which is perfectly wonderful. The kids couldn't be happier and it saved us a bunch of money!

Brooklyn's bed is a day bed, which is great for sleepovers. When guests come over it will be a nice place for them to stay, quiet and private. They'll have their own room. So it works out perfect for everyone.

The boys got another set of bunk beds. The cool thing about these beds is that instead of a ladder they have stairs! Even cooler, on the other side of the stairs are drawers. Those drawers are Caleb's new dresser. There are also two drawers under the bed. This thing is heavy, sturdy wood so it will last them a long time. I don't know why Caleb looks like he just lost his dog. Trust me that he is totally thrilled with the beds.
I took the boys to Wal-Mart to buy sheets. I have a rule that there are no movie/cartoon charaters on the comforters but they can pick out whatever they want for sheets. They bought Transformers and Batman. I wasn't going to buy comforters just yet but I found these for $14.87 each. You can't beat that. They are reversible with stripes on the other side so I bought one for each bed and now they're set.

Now on to the 'new to us' item. Bobby's friend Craig is the one that is renting us this darling house. He has a big screen TV and nowhere to put it in his house. Bobby offered to buy it from him and he said that we can try it out for now and if it still works (which it does) and we like it that we can buy it from him when we have the money. So here is Bobby's new TV - a dream come true. It is high definition so he is like a kid in a candy store looking for movies to watch and games to play.
When I took this we hadn't put it where is was going to stay but I figured you'd get the idea. It's huge but it's nice.
