The Playhouse

I've written about my cousins before - the ones that grew up two doors down from us. My siblings and I spent many of our formative years playing in their back yard. They had a trampoline, zip line, and AWESOME playhouse complete with heating and cooling systems. Since grandchildren have come along the playhouse has been updated from its former 'country' style to a more modern Melissa and Doug look.

While visiting my family for T-day, Stephen Small has certainly put his time in at this little house. Its so perfect and childproof. I've considered shutting him up in there and reading a book or taking a nap on the front porch. We played here for one solid hour yesterday and had ourselves the largest time!

{The play house matches the real house.}

{S. Small made hamburgers}

{He went straight for the ketch up and put it on his 'burger' - a boy after my own heart. That shows you how much ketch up we eat at our house. We love it!}

{My cousin made these quilted valences. Its the details like this that make the house so charming.}

{Oh and this ironing board - have you ever seen anything so cute?}

{I'm teaching him to be a good husband one day. This one is going in the rehearsal dinner file.}

 I love my sweet boy.
Stephen Grande has to build us one of these...one day.

I want to play in that! My dad built us a playhouse, and we spent so much time in there. This one is really legit, though. I'm dying over the valances and ironing board. Seriously, I may need to drive down to play with y'all. Hope you're having fun in MS...Happy Thanksgiving!

Love it, love it, love it! I'm thinking my own dear husband will have to create a similar wonderful place for Miss F! Reminds me of my own, much more rustic, childhood playhouse.

You captured some precious moments.

Have a wonderful Thanksgiving and don't forget the ketchup!
