A few days ago, Jordyn lost her two front teeth! I think she looks pretty cute, don't you?

Look at her feeling the space between her teeth with her tongue. We wondered if she would really notice that they were gone....but she knows!
We had some friends move recently. They have a special needs child and needed to be closer to a larger hospital. They just spent about three months in Denver because he was really sick. He is only 2 yrs. old and it seems like they are just beginning their "journey" into having a special needs child so, you can imagine ALL of the things we had in common with them and had so much to talk about. We tried to help them by watching their 3yr. old for some of the time they were in Denver and the week they moved. So, to repay us, they gave us a ton of their stuff that they didn't want to take with them! I get all excited when I get free stuff! The kids got a wagon, a play slide/swing for the backyard, an art easel, & sandbox (all in fantastic condition!). They gave us two older Lazy Boy recliners, two end tables, and two lamps. So, this weekend I gave the end tables a makeover! (pic. below was after I sanded it)

The boys wanted to be in the picture! I think it turned out really cool. Now if I could just be a little more creative and not paint every thing black! :)

Who are those boys? Are they yours? I hardly recognize them! Evan is quite the blond and Carter looks much older.

Jordyn looks cute every which way.

The "before" picture of the end table looks look a piece of dated oak furniture. The "after" picture looks like a cute new piece. You're getting good at turning your finds into great decorating pieces. You could be on that TV show where they take people's throw-aways from the curb and bring back a "new" piece of furniture.

That's awesome! I love free things too. Jordyn is getting so big and I love the smile! I have a blog if you'd like to catch up with me. Every time I get on I check to see how you guys are doing. I have moved too...I will send a letter and my blog address. Love you all!

I love free stuff too. It just feels like you won the lottery. I also love when I score something awesome at a garage sale for like a dollar. Jordyn looks so cute. I guess we know what she will want for Christmas this year....

She is pretty cute. I also love the table makeover. You are very talented.

I love free stuff too. And I love it even more when people just aren't in the mood to move it. Too bad you have to lose good friends though. Sounds like she was just what you needed.

Good job on the table makeover! It looks brand new :D

Jordyn looks like she likes having her teeth out and Yes she looks way cute!

I'm just STARTING to paint everything black! Maybe I'll get sick of it some time, but not yet!

I like black furniture. The table looks great! I'm thinking of painting some of mine black too.

Wow, good for Jordyn for losing her teeth. Ethan hasn't lost any. I'm starting to worry that he'll be stuck with his baby teeth forever.

Sounds like a really fun trip to Montana. Sounds like you're doing well.
