For starters, Martha Stewart, my kids decorated the Christmas tree like they do each year. It’s not perfect like yours but certainly has a lot of character. And our Santa is the best!

Let me tell you more.

Those two drawers in the guest bathroom? They’re full of underwear, so my sons always know where to find a clean pair.

The pool table in the living room – well, no other room was large enough. And, boy, do my sons love to play, especially after finishing their breakfast.

My cars haven’t been inside for years because the garage serves as a revolving film set for their most creative work. You’ll have to catch the episodes on YouTube and see how they turn “practically anything into something useful.” I stole that line from you.

The formal dining room? That’s now our library with the most comfortable, 22-year-old sofa anywhere. It’s a wonderful place to read a good book and watch the birds in the backyard trees.

You see, we maximize every inch of our space for function and really don’t have any rooms for show. I hope you understand and won’t judge.

After all, this house is our home – and we love it. DCP
