First of all, our neighbors bought three plasma TVS for Christmas (one for each bedroom) and gave us a TV that was bigger and nicer than our one and only one. : ) My hubby thought it would be fun to build a shelf for the TV and put it in the family room for playing their other gift. (the Wii*) Carlos jumped on that idea and in a few hours he had that shelf all built. (my favorite painter still has to paint it when all the fun of the holidays are over)
Then Carlos gave the kiddos a Foosball table for Christmas.
And then Uncle Phil surprised the Gator fans of the family with this very large sticker. ; )
And voila! The family room now looks like a game room
or as the guys of this family prefer to call it
I still have my little homeschooling area...
but this room is not looking too academic now. ; )
