we've had a few changes around here this week.
the first change is one that we've been anticipating for 3 years! thanks to the Lord's provision, we were able to replace our super gross (gross not from us but from the previous owners of this home) carpet this week. we knew from the minute we moved in that we wanted to change the carpets. there were paint spots and stains that did not come out when we had the carpet cleaned before moving in, not to mention the previous owners had a large dog that was allowed inside. fortunately we only have carpet in our 3 bedrooms, but carpet can be expensive, and required a chunk of change we just didn't have when we first moved in. we started saving then but all those dang surprise expenses that crop up kept eating away at our savings, particularly my surprise surgery back in january.
nonetheless, through the Lord's provision, we were able to order carpet a couple of weeks ago. i won't bore you with the details, but the ordering and installation came with it's own drama and headaches, which eventually led to (after many, many phone calls and lots of patience) the company upgrading our carpet at no further expense to us! it was installed on tuesday and i'm not sure who was more excited, the boys or us!
here's burrito with the big reveal (and it wasn't even done yet!):
and who doesn't love a before and after shot! so here's the before (front view and back view):
and here's the after! we love the haircuts and can't believe the difference on noodle! they both look so handsome and so grown up.
