Beds for my Monkeys!

We were going to put bunk beds in lay away for our kids. We needed three sets, we knew we were going to spend quite a bit because of quantity. We wanted to get beds that they can take with them when they grow up and move out. My Dad mentioned that we should go to a local furniture store that he always buys from. We went and checked them out. We were going to put them in lay away. My Dad said he would buy them for us. Let me just say now that it was a very, very generous gift! Thanks Dad (one day I should post a blog about all the great stuff my Dad gets for us, like my new Cannon Rebel)! So we went and special ordered the ones we wanted. We got the girls these ones http://youngamerica.stanleyfurniture.com/youngamerica/Browse.do?groupNumber=15&nav2=YBEDSBUNK&sku=483-94-760&nav1=YBEDS the ones we ordered have four drawers and a small bookshelf underneath. We ordered two sets of them so when Hudsyn moves into a bed she will have one waiting, and Grace will have her own bed to sleep in. I want her to feel comfortable when she stays the night and sleeping with someone else isn't that comfy. We ordered Tristin this one http://youngamerica.stanleyfurniture.com/youngamerica/Browse.do?groupNumber=107&nav2=YBEDSBUNK&sku=782-64-762&nav1=YBEDS his has the same under bed drawers that the girls have! We ordered him the twin over full so overnight guests, like my in-laws will have a place to sleep. My father in law usually sleeps on the couch and my mother in law on the love seat. They are always so gracious and say we are just glad to be staying with you. Also that way Tristin can have a full size bed when he is older. I am sure he will be bigger than my girls. I have to say I am really excited to get them. If you know me at all you know I hate to wait. I am also waiting on all the bedding that we ordered. All of this waiting is killing me. Tonight we went to Target and picked up the 14 pillows and six waterproof mattress covers that we needed. We seem to have an issue with nighttime bed wetting with the four year olds, they fall into a deep sleep and occasionally wet the bed. I am also a little bummed though because Bell will be moving to a big girl bed. She is growing up so fast. I will post pics when we get the new beds! Update: When I got home from picking K up from school, T's bedding had delivered. We opened it up and everything was perfect, the bedding for the bottom bunk was even better than it looked like on the internet. The sets do not have the same design. The bedding for the top is a camping quilt with a bear and paw prints and the bottom set is a plad comforter. They looked like they could go together but not exactly match (they are both made by Woolrich Kids). When we opened them they were a perfect match! I love them! On the down side I now have to wash the six sets of sheets (you can never have too many) for his beds and the comforter set, which should prove to be a challenge! I hope I get can get them done before the girls bedding comes in!

Your Dad has always been a kind soul, please tell him hello for me.
