Pipsqueaks have got to play.

The storage bins hold hats, scarves, purses, boas, fairy wings. You know…anything a fashionista might need to add a little JAZZ to an outfit.
This Eric Carle, Very Hungry Caterpillar tent, is another one of THE most happening spots in the house. As soon as we put it together, 4 years ago, we realized it wasn't coming down for a loooooong time. It's a permanent playroom fixture.
We've got some good things going on in this little room—a space where the girls are free to explore, pretend, learn and create.
