Our newest addition

No, Sprout didn't decide to make an appearance just yet, but we're still pretty excited about this addition.

There are many, many things we love about our house, but there are a few things we wish we could change too. One of those things is the small eating area. We have no dining room - just a small bump out area in the kitchen. It's a tight squeeze for a soon to be family of 6!

This was our old dining table in the space. You can see that there isn't enough room for everyone to fit (and you can also see the metal folding chair we've been using since we broke the 4th chair years ago). At family meal times, we'd pull Wild One's highchair as close as possible to the table, but it still felt as though she were eating in a separate space.

This weekend we finally picked up a new-to-us dining room table that can fit the whole family (thank you Craigslist)!!! The table certainly takes up a lot more space than the old one did, but we can finally have the whole family together at one table (we have a booster seat for Wild One to sit in at the table).

I think a table runner and some flowers for the center of the table would really dress it up, don't you?

What about you - is there something you would like to change about your current space?
