While painting, Scot and I had a lot of time to talk details about the new house! It was a lot of fun - as you can imagine!
For the past several months, every time I have seen something that I like, I save the pic in my house idea files. Lately, I have started narrowing down some of my choices. It was great to have pictures to show Scot what I was talking about so he could get the vision too.
As promised, I thought I would start sharing some of them with you. If you are interested in how the planning/designing stage is coming along, check out our home blog to see some ideas we have for the front door and kitchen.

The kids really had fun doing chores the old fashioned way.
Mr. Sid was demonstrating how they would sheer sheep "back in the day".

Of course, you cannot end the day at the park without ice cream for the General Store!

These glasses are more than just display items...we actually use them on occassion. I also use them to decorate with during the fall. Because they are so deep, I use them as flower vases. At other times, they are just fillers in my mantel tablescape.

Scot picked up these head lights at a local tool store. He has one similar to these that he wears when he is working on the shed at night. The kids love his.
When we saw these on sale at the tool store for less than $4, we knew we needed to get one for each of them. Needless to say, they have been a BIG hit. We did not realize how much they would wear them.
Sitting in their beds reading. Playing trains. Riding their bikes. To school play practice.
But I had to draw the line today when they wanted to wear them to T*rg*t.

My cousins, Billy and Josh, were out at the land helping Scot with the shed. Somehow the kids talked them into helping them do some building in their forts.

The shed/garage is really starting to take shape! It is very exciting to see the trusses go up!
Scot and some friends and family have been working out at the land last night and today. We are so greatful for their help!
Hopefully, the weather will hold out and they will be able to get a lot more trusses put up!

Take a look at what I found at our local kids consignment sale.
Isn't this great fabric? The kids want to do a cowboy bathroom at the new house, so when I found this custom made curtains for $5 I had to have it.
You can read more about what I have found for this bathroom over at our home blog.

I LOVE this dress for M. It is from Gy*b*ree. It was only $3.00! The picture does not do it justice...trust me.
I got these dress shirts for B..they were $2.00 each. I was so excited because he really needed some new button downs for church. He wore the blue one yesterday and looked so handsome! I think I will save the green one for Easter.
$5.00 skates for S.
E got these cute flip flops for $1.50 - never been worn! I saw them last summer at Ta*g*t for $12.99!!!
Maybe I will do a fashion show one day so you can see all the other cute little summer outfits that I got because I really did get a lot of great things for next to nothing!
