Well I didn't wanna do it! I REALLY didn't. So for truth in advertising -- ya got the untouched (kinda) version of my house. It's NOT perfect not by a strech - BUT you can see the floor and the sink is shiny.

Our playroom - DH built those shelves so I can put the toys in buckets and away from little fingers - unfortunately the little fingers are taller now and know how to use chairs!

The living room - we have to paint over the yellow walls - and we'll eventually take up the carpet - but the kids are still in the spilling stage.

Our kitchen. Our dining room is just off this - but it looks like a BOMB went off in there! ;-)

I love that it's obvious you have kids. My first husband insisted that all "evidence" of children be removed before he got home from work. I like the lived-in look, and loved every last bit of "evidence."

Alice said...

But it looks like home and one where you can relax and be yourselves.

Yours would be about the 3rd or 4th time on the Home Tours that I've seen those doors with the semi-circular window at the top. It seems to be a popular in your part of the world. SO pretty! Thanks for sharing your house with us.

Carol said...

Looks like a home filled with love and laughter to me! Thanks for the peek inside.

Jenny in Queensland said...

Love your kitchen - lots of good cabinet space and like the green countertops. Bright and cheerful playroom - the best kind.

Your home is warm and welcoming. Kid-friendly is DEFINITELY a plus in our book!

Thanks for inviting us in!

Thanks so much for sharing your home...it looks comfy and inviting:-) I'm determined to do all the homes on this tour...every time I think I'm getting to the end though, more are added! lol

Trisha said...

Nice home and it looks lived in and happy, not dirty

Barb said...

Can't imagine why you didn't want to do it. Your house is great! I love your green countertops and I really love the way the whole place just looks like people actually live there!

Kris in TN said...

Thanks for visiting my blog on the Home Tour. I had so much fun looking at everyone's home and I have so many more to visit, too! I love the shelves that you have in the play room just scattered here and there making use of all the space that you can! What a great idea!

kpjara said...

Thanks for the tour (and for visiting)...you're so good to tour all these homes. I still feel SO overwhelmed...I've only been through maybe 1/3 of them!

Glass Half Full said...

I gotta say...I love that red couch!!! Totally pops!!! :)

Big Mama said...

Thanks for coming by to see me! My parents bought the table for the playroom so I'm not sure where it came from.
So glad I stopped in. Your home is great and I love all of your pictures!

RANDI said...

I love your home--so very pretty!

Rebecca said...

Love your playroom. Thanks for sharing!

Dianne said...

HA! We do have the same sofa, but my bum is usually the only one that sits on it most of the time. I got it at a place in Delaware.
Your home looks lived in and loved, like mine!

Gail said...

Your playroom looks so organized, impressive! So cute with your little one in the pic. Don't you just love your kitchenaid!
Thanks for sharing your home and visiting mine!
Lots of work to get to them all.

Sonia said...

Hi, me again.
Thank you so much for your visiting and kind words about my home!
Have a good week!

Malissa said...

I like the organization for the playroom!

LOL about the kids getting taller and using chairs;) I know that feeling!

Thanks for stopping by mine too!

Robin said...

Kids in the spilling stage? I think T and I realized all to quickly you don't buy anything of value when the are young!!!

Thanks for the "real" tour!!

Texas Gal said...

Love the floor in the kitchen! Thanks for stopping by. I was able to post one picture of our pool! Some anyway!

Heather said...

Oh my goodness. I saw your son sitting at the computer and my heart gave a jolt. He looks exactly like my son sitting at the computer. I am sure it is a combination of the way they both sit, the size, and hair cut but!

I love the house. If I had more containers and kept more stuff it is just what mine would look like. (The Lord keep sprompting me to get rid of things, which is good because people keep giving us more stuff!)

Chappyswife said...

I am glad you stopped at my place & thanks for inviting me to your home. It looks like it is full of love & fun. The way I hear it, we'll have plenty of time later for all the little breakables! Nice to meet you.
