Snowmen Headquarters

We have a 4 bedroom house and are empty nesters.  The layout of our house has the master bedroom and the guest room on the main floor and 2 bedrooms upstairs, connected by a Jack and Jill bathroom.  This worked out perfectly for our family as I turned the upstairs spaces into the grandchildren's bedrooms.

This is the room for my 3 little snowmen.  Come on in, it will never be this clean for a while!

First thing you will notice is something hanging on the door.  We used to have an advent calendar every year, and of course I saved them.  I didn't really know what to do with them, so I decided to stick them on the doors in the kids rooms.  It's working great.
The theme for the room when it is not snowmen is transportation.  Inside this nightstand are some of our board books.  We like books:-)
The bed is a trundle so it sleeps 2.  Usually grandpa on the top and a little boy on the bottom. 
Love this Christmas quilt.
The snowman on the top shelf is an advent calendar.  You are to add an ornament each day.  I just put them all on!
The little toy corner all set to play Snowman.
The cutest game ever!
See the little wooden snowmen?  They come apart and you have to collect your pieces as you go along.  Fun and easy.
For our littlest snowman.

I love a creche that children can play with.
Their little tree has some snowman ornaments and lots of sparkly snowflakes.
There you have it ~ winter wonderland for my boys.  Now on to the Nutcracker Suite!

I just LOVE this room. I'm kind of snowman crazy, and I used to try a snowman theme in the den. This year, I'm moving it to my newly painted kitchen. It's nothing compared to this cute little room.

I love that you even have the detail of the snowman GAME. That's simply wonderful.

And I JUST got the news that I one the giveaway!! Yay for me and THANK YOU!!

I'm going to snoop my way through the rest of your tour now.
