Furniture Shopping and Krasnoyarsk hats. . .they go together, right??

We spent the entire day yesterday out shopping for Aidan's new bedroom furniture.  As is the tradition with us, we went back to the first place we had gone and purchased the first bedroom set I liked. . .it was on sale, and I got an addition 10% off for paying cash.  So, we paid about $1000. less than I had actually budgeted!!  : )  Now, of course, Pat is trying to figure out what to do with that other $1000. . . .I'd like to just let it sit in our savings for now, thank you very much!

Anyway, here is a picture of what it looks like on the web site.  The actual furniture was not in the showroom, but some of the samples had a deeper and richer look to the wood than this portrays. 

This flyer is a better portrayal of the actual color of the furniture.

It is supposed to arrive in 6 to 8 weeks. . .that puts it around early- to mid- April, I think, about a month before he turns 5.  That should give me plenty of time to get his room in order-wallpaper border changed out, cleaned up, organized and some of the "stuff" packed away or sold. . .I'm hoping this will take him into Middle School, at which time we will probably have to buy him a King Size bed because he will be soooo big!!  : )  One last thing about the "down" bed, as Aidan calls it. . .we don't have to put that in right away and Aidan can use the space for his tents, if he wants!  But there is a built in bulletin board behind which will be a great spot for art work, awards, certificates, etc. . .  Can't wait!

Also, I found this great hat for Aidan. It says Krasnoyarsk RUS on it. How cool is that???

What a goof ball!
