that home

remember growing up how there was always "that home" where everyone wanted to go hangout?
when i started having kids i realized how much i wanted my home to be "that home."

here is my house today...



so far so good!



should i be worried that it feels so right to me to have so many kids in my house all at once?

My moms house was that house growing up and I hope that I can be that house too. I want to be as wonderful as my mom was with all of our friends, she fed them and made them all feel welcome. I don't think it's wrong at all to love having all those kids in your house..I hope kids are always in my house! Seriously, could you be anymore adorable??

What else do you do other than feed them? When I was little "that house" was the "rich" girls house and every one wanted to be there cause she had all the new and cool toys. But that is not the way I would want to draw others. Any suggestions?

I love how even the youngest kids throw peace signs in pictures. So cute! Your kids have the coolest mom.

That's awesome! I totally know what you mean, I want my house to be 'the hangout house' too. Plus, it's easier to know what your kids are up to, and who their friends are that way. :D

You are so lucky! I always wanted that for my kids, but I have to take care of my mom. We can't really have anyone over at all. My kids get so bummed about it, which makes me even more sad. Good for you for having that home!!!
