The Jeep

I promised I would give you the story of the jeep so here it is...  Over the summer Kate started mentioning that she wanted a Barbie Jeep for her birthday.  I of course started to panic when I saw that they were almost $300.  That is crazy!  So I started searching Craigslist and online yard sales.  I found one that was in great working order but it looked horrible.  I mean it was in really bad shape.  I bought it for $40.  I knew it was going to need a major overhaul.  
 Matt and I are always up for a project.  So we totally took it apart (this was actually the hardest part).  Once it was totally in pieces we spray painted it.  Of course it turned really cold right as we were doing this so that was a challenge.
 Then we had to reassemble and get it back in working order.  Thankfully that went better than we thought.
 We got new stickers for it and it looked like new!!
 I am so proud of how it turned out!!  It really does look like a new jeep and instead of $300 we spent $80.
 And Little Miss just loves it!
