A new house....kind of.

Well, we have always wanted a bigger house, but it's just not going to happen any time soon. We are with the other thousands of people who bought a new house at the wrong time....so instead we have to make things work. So, Jon has been busy the last 2 months or so putting in an egress window in the basement so the two older boys can sleep down there. We already had a playroom down there so it wasn't too much to do, but sorting through 3 boys toys, clothes and everything else in between has taken us forever. 2 weeks ago we finally moved them down into their new room. Levi has taken over their old room upstairs and out of our bedroom (I never thought that would happen.) He even has a closet now. Well, kind of...the top of the closet it his and the bottom is all the upstairs toys. So, Levi's room is kind of a playroom now also. The livingroom is almost void of toys unless they are actively playing with them. And eventually it will have a table for art and reading when we find one. The boys have been loving their new basement bedroom. They can open the window and climb out the ladder if necessary, hopefully that will never happen. They have been sleeping pretty good down there, it's me who can't sleep very well listening to see if they are okay. My boys have never been that far away. I know I have issues. Levi is loving his own room, he actually sleeps most nights! Amazing, I never thought that would happen either. Well, here are some photos of the 'new house'!

That is great! You have accomplished what we NEED to do! Way to go Jon with that egress window. I might need to drag him over here and help Casey when the time comes. :)

I love it...such a great use of space. I always try to think of Ikea when I think our house is too small. They make small spaces look so efficient and trendy. Who needs a big house anyways? They're just cold and empty. :) Tell Jon great job...he can come over anytime and finish our basement. We could DEFINITELY use the extra space!
