Foto Fridays: Our Year in Photos

Month 2 Week 1: Playroom.

For the first week of each month we'll focus on a room in the house.

To know more about this project you can read my first post here.

I wanted to give a good feel for our play room. The kids use it A LOT. Like a lot a lot. And I wanted to give a spread of things they do there on a weekly bases. So these pictures are not all from the same day.

Lots of dumping of toys happens down there thanks to Eli (and neighbor kids)

I just got my old trunk that was in my room when I was a kid and I have filled it with dress up clothes and MAN do they get used a LOT. Like almost every day a lot.

In one closet sits this big old doll house. It was also mine as a kid. I wanted to fix it all up to give to Lucy for Christmas but I just didn't get to it. So it's a future project waiting to happen. But the kids play with it all the time anyways. It ends up being the house for little pet shop and barbies and superheros and lego men and all sorts of characters.

The tv and wii are down there too so that gets used as well.

The ping pong table I got for Regan for Christmas is down there. And some days that is a train table space too.

Lots of reading goes on down there too... in the background you can see the dress up trunk better.

We love our big open downstairs! It is a great place for all these activities and more.

You can see all my other entries for this project here

Go check out Brooke's over here!

Please tell me if you have a link somewhere for playing along and I'll add the links.

your basement really is pretty sweet. james was looking over my shoulder and when your fav pic comes he said 'and then woody comes along.' it was like he was playing while looking at your pics!

Great pics! I like Alden and Lucy reading on the floor and I am a little jealous of Alden's squat position with feet planted on the floor and looking so comfortable.

I love your dress up trunk. I have a laundry basket with some costumes but the kids have grown out of some of them. Reminds me to expand our dress up clothes. I love seeing people's playrooms and what their kids fav's are. I'm loving this challenge!
