now THAT'S a neighbor's husband!
Kim is married to a guy that is just as kind as she is, and we have come to enjoy the great benefits of living across the street from this kind professional painter! His latest neighborly deed was to repaint the crib and changing table for us. I had asked him for some advice on touching it up, and he let me know that if we sanded the furniture, he would paint it.
I only wish that I had taken a before picture. The result is gorgeous, and we have a brand new looking set! As a "thank you," I took them a plate of those chocolate chip sandwich cookies, and I do believe he thought it was a great trade. :-)

Wow! Can we move on the other side?!?! We have great neighbors too. We put up with their screaming kids which helps us get a few favors here and there. He's a backyard mechanic and Tony is so not mechanically enclined, so that is great!
