A great find!

Back on some lonely September day I was browsing the classified trying to find an end table for my living room. I just happened to find this beauty. It is an antique mahogany table. It was love at first sight. The best part of it was it only cost me 10 dollars! The lady didn't want to fix it up and just wanted to get rid if it. I was thrilled to take it off her hands! Isn't it beautiful?

Phoebe is holding it up. I hadn't fixed the leg yet. She is such a trooper. Or maybe she was happy to be out of bed to help her mom. I don't know.

The top is really scratched up. Part of my likes it that way. It gives it more flavor. Part of me wants to totally redo it from top to bottom. I guess it depends on the history behind the table. I am still trying to find out information about it. More to come on that.

Ignore the dust please. I love the detail! The decor, the grain line and the color. It is so pretty. I don't think I took a photo if it but I has metal claw feet. Oh so cute!

Another pretty shot.

Here is another added bonus. It opens up to a card table! The hinges are loose so we don't open it up, but wont that be fun when family comes over?
Soon after I took these photos I fixed the broken leg and found the perfect spot in the living room. It is adorned with my beautiful redone lamp and fall decorations. I will try to get a photo of it up soon.

Adam's Canyon

On another Saturday in September Jake wanted to take the family on a hike. The one he really wanted to do, my knee couldn't do. We decided to split up, Jake took Kimball and Phoebe to Adam's Canyon and Warren and I got to spend some great quality time together. I loved looking at the photos from their hike. They were lucky enough to run into a friend doing the same hike and they took photos of all of them. I think they turned out great!

Ogden's Horses

Back in September Mom and I took the kids to Ogden's farmers market. It runs along Historic 25th street. Apparently they have placed about 75 painted horses all up and down the area. We took our time and found the cool horses. It was a fun way to spend a Saturday Morning.

(The John Wayne Horse.. Mom's fav!)

(I don't remember this horses name, the kids just liked it)

Go Air Force!

This one was the prettiest. It has glitter all over it!

The. Halloween. Costumes. Are. Done.
Phoebe as Penny
Kimball as Rino
Warren as Bolt

I tried to make it easier this year then last. Sure I didn't start in August but having to find everything to match was hard enough. Maybe next year I will just buy costumes! *gasp!* Jake is going to be the villian, The green eyed man, mom is going to be Mittens the cat and I get stuck being Penny's mom. Why can't I get a cool person to be? Oh well. Here it to many more post to come!
