Play house Adventure!

Aunt Sheryl gave the kids this AwEsOmE playhouse for Christmas...it's made of super sturdy cardboard and it's meant to be colored, painted, etc. I took pics and videoed the first time we got it out, but seriously, it has been something the kids play with/color on EVERY DAY since. They love it!


Thanks again Aunt Sheryl!



Our initial experience with it was BEYOND messy! Anyone who knows me well knows, I get a little stressed out in messy situations...I was pretty proud of myself this go around. I totally kept my cool and just kept thinking, "there's nothing a little soap and water won't take off." :) (And luckily, the kids were still in their pj's and due for a bath anyway!)

Oh my word! Jen, way to stay calm in a messy situation. Carter had more paint on him than the house did, I think. What a fun present, though!

I have to agree with Sharee way to go on staying so calm with Carter as he used more paint on himself than the house :) It looked like they were having a blast though. Super fun idea the cardboard playhouse reminds me of the movie Peter Pan (stage version).
