if every day were yard sale day



i found these at a yard sale on friday. marc wasn’t very impressed, but i thought they were cute.


the best find was this $5, radio flyer, tricycle for jehu. grammy paid $40 for master gideon’s so i was quite thrilled to pick this one up. if you saw the ‘pedal fast’ video in the sidebar you might have noticed that jehu was in need of a better set of wheels. he was having a hard time trying to live up to his name.


in other news, home depot has brought back their $19 area rugs. i haven’t seen them in 2 years. i’m a great fan of disposable carpet. we are very committed to wood floors but when babies come along they need a bit softer of a spot to land. also, after landing they tend to vomit and deficate (more often than naught) so it is best to have something you can dispose of after a few months.


both gideon and jehu had their own disposable, home depot rugs. i remember gideon took off his diaper, pooped, then butt scouched all over said rug. i can’t imagine having wall to wall carpet in such a situation. i just rolled it up and chucked it out. after that the world was once again a cold, hard, but decidedly cleaner place.

    jehu sure does have a nice hair cut. and matching bikes, too nice. one has a different tire tread so they will be able to tell them apart. i wish i could go to yard sales. some incredible finds miranda. i really like the cowboys, so if you don’t want the wall hangings i will take them from you. but i think those are a collectible item. worth some money.

    on a differnt note. how about a circus theme for jehu’s birthday. i found plastic plates and glasses that would make for nice favors. i could purchase some sets or i can wait until you see them. or maybe i will use them for the tea party on friday, for the kids. love mom

    the bikes are easy to tell apart. jehu’s is actually smaller and he can just reach the pedals. as for birthdays, i’m still leaning towards a spaceship theme. in which case i could have more fun with refrigerator boxes. so keep your eyes open in that direction, thanks.
