I mentioned in my last post that we had finally convinced Carson to get a haircut. I really think it is my favorite cut on him. He wanted the top longer than I normally get it cut and the sides shorter... and I wanted it off his ears and trimmed neatly in the back. This cut suits him so well and he likes it. Plus with the top longer, I don't have to worry too much about sunscreen on his scalp.

For the past two days I have been unpacking the basement, which includes Carson's playroom, and my office/scrapbook room combo. We purchased the Ikea Expedit on Saturday. We got the medium sized one, and it did not take me long to realize that I should have bought the larger one. Anyway, I was really wondering where I was going to put all my stuff. I remembered that in the storage room in the basement there was this really neat old Art cabinet from a local school. It is huge and heavy... but oooh so full of potential as a cool place to store all my stuff.
I convinced Wayne that we needed to move it, and it was really simple really. The unit is in two pieces, so we took the top off and slid it on those moving pads (awesome by the way and worth their weight in gold). Moved the base the same way and Wayne bolted it all together. There were sliding glass doors, but I could not get them to close if I put the paper up there, so I took them off and stored them.
Isn't this COOL.... I love the storage that this has... I can hide a multitude of cr*p in it. Plus the four drawers are going to make organising easier too.This is looking down the hallway from the playroom area. To the right is the restroom and wet bar area (not shown) It is a disaster.... so forgive the mess.The picture below is from down the hall... this is a huge room. The previous owner used this as his media room, and art studio. The indentations in the walls are spotlighted and where he hung some of his artwork.
Anyway... I have been busy and am no where near done as this picture attests to. The place is still a mess, and I will post pictures when it is all completed. This picture is looking back toward the playroom and shows the ledge where the previous owner kept the media projectors etc.
While we were waiting for Daddy to come in from the train, Carson practised his hula hoop ... he is actually getting very good at it.
