The kids' new room!

We've been unpacked for a week now and it's SO nice. :-) But Liv and I (aka ME) just finished organizing her room together. The only thing left is to label her shelves. Eventually, Duncan will be on the lower bed and Liv on the top, we're just waiting on the side guards so we don't have any middle-of-the-night rolling incidents. So for now, Liv's on the bottom and D's in his playpen.

Livy on her bed. :-)

Liv's dollys.

Showing one off. :-P

The shelves (for now). :-)

Changing table... exciting. :-)

Erm... excuse the rabid squirrel look on her face... scary.

A little bit more of a "room" view.
The house outside is not the most pleasant view,
but look past it and we've got a desert scape on the right
and TREES on the left. :-)
A little bit of home, right out the window.

new house + cute babies

Lovin' and sliding on the new deck. :-)

our first IKEA trip

They say Disneyland is the happiest place on earth...
well, let me tell you - IKEA comes pretty darn tootin' close!

Here's our "bed" model, Olivia,
modeling an adorable brown and white polka dot duvet set.

Getting cozy, haha. :-)

This duvet set both Cameron and I really liked.
It's a queen duvet, comes with two pillow cases that match -
...unbelievable. And SO cute. :-D

Liv in the kids' entrance to the KID section.

CUTE number duvets for kids.

Adorable fairytale duvet set
(Liv named it "Cinderella's beautiful kingdom castle bed".)

A HUGE turtle on one of the kid tables,
Liv was digging this section, as you can tell. :-)

Blowing Momma kisses.

Daddy and Duncan - note the "MORE" screech with arms in the air.
Nice "model of the year" Zoolander pose there, Daddy. :-P

Duncan with his two finished plates of macaroni - it was PILED on there
and he horked it all down. Oinker. ;-)

We had dinner while we were at IKEA - it was a GREAT deal. We got food for all of us for $12.00! And it was fantastic food. The kids each got macaroni ($0.99 each) and Duncan ended up eating both of them, lol. Liv shared fries, after eating a little of her macaroni, from our food. Cameron got chicken fingers with fries ($5.99) and I got a chicken caesar salad ($4.50) and we split each with each other. It was crazy how much food they give you! We were all full when we left.

I'm excited to go and try their breakfast - yummy - it's a whole plate of breakfast food: eggs, french toast sticks, bacon, sausage, and hashbrowns - all for $1.99.

All in all we had a GREAT time! We'll definitely go back. :-D

Liv's Birthday Party

Here are Liv's birthday photos with Cameron's family.
These were taken at our new apartment. :-)

I like how the girl gives Danine a big smile - try and find ONE smile for me in the next photos, lol. Not ONE. Mimi Wagner's just got the touch I guess. :-)

"Tacos" from Danine & Bruce

A new drawing board (YAY!) from Danine & Bruce

Fun "am-ball-ance" from Danine & Bruce for Duncman
