Today I am thankful for our playroom. This isn't a great picture but it's the only one I had. Our toy room is a small room right off our family room that was perfect for storing the kids toys.

I love how it's off to the side so it doesn't seem like our whole family room is cluttered with toys. I do wish we had more floorspace in there so they actually had room to play, but it's a great space nonetheless.

We have several storage pieces in the room; one big piece that was mustard yellow and I painted off-white holds a bunch of toys, and the storage unit we got from Ikea is awesome for blocks, cars, and other small toys: We also have shelves up high to store puzzles and toys with small pieces so that the little kids can't reach.

But my favorite thing of all in this toy room are the homemade name plaques hanging on the wall that I made for each of my babies:

So what are you thankful for today?


  1. What a great play room. I love that it is right next to the family room, but has that little wall to conceal some of it. Very cool!

    I am just so thankful for my childrens' health. We found out that a little girl next door and best playmate of my daughter has a brain tumor. So so sad...


  2. You made the plaques? I love them! :)

  3. Love the playroom. Wish we had a room like that.. then I would be thankful for it too!

    Instead, I am thankful for the 8 hours in a row Darby slept last night!!! It was LOVELY.

  4. I'm thankful for the sunshine, even though it's only about 12 degrees with 50 MPH gusts of wind. The sunshine makes all the difference on a cold day!

    Nice to meet you - thanks for joining my blog! :)
