The Dentons

For some reason our house is the only one on the street that doesn't have our street number on it. This is something I've been wanting to fix for a while because when we invite people over they always have a hard time figuring out which place is ours. I also wanted to make a sign to hang on our mailbox saying "The Dentons" mainly because I feel like every other day our mailman asks what our last name is. Now he can just look at my beautiful sign :) Last night we went to Hobby Lobby and bought the stuff for the sign. I decided to include Loren in this project since it is his house too, and let him pick the colors. Of course he picks BYU blue and white, which I'm ok with but everything knows Kentucky blue is much better. That's pretty much his only contribution to making the sign although while I was painting he'd hand me the letters and started singing a song. It went something like this:
"D is for Denton cause that's your new last name
E is for the second letter of your new last name
N is for Nicole cause that's your middle name
T is for Thomas cause that's your daddy's name
O is for Ochoa cause that's your mom's old name
N is for Nicole because I love your middle name

T is for Thomas again because that's still your daddy's name
H is for Hoffpauir cause that's your old last name
E is for everyone loves Maggie!"

I bet you didn't know Loren was such an amazing songwriter :) He actually makes up songs all the time for me, which is fun because I make up songs all the time too. Between the two of us we're like our own little musical everyday, and that's how I know I really married the right guy. He likes to sing with me but most importantly he likes to listen to me sing :) Anyway here's the finished product, yes we know we need a new mailbox.

This was a fun little thing to do and I like the outcome of it.
