Here's an update for those of you who care... (all 2 of you) :)
IKEA was fun...my Mom was pretty amazed. I spent very little money which made Ron happy. And I still came home with a few unique treasures. I love their eclectic style! I'm already looking forward to going again. It was a fun trip but a long day. I ended up spending about 7 hours in the car Saturday, so I was exhausted by the time I got home.
My favorite purchase was this stuffed elephant I got Sam for Christmas. He told his dad not long ago he'd rather be an elephant than a tiger, so I guess it's time I stop pushing Auburn on him... Luke is pictured with it just for added cuteness.
