Part 1: Its no Castle...

but I do believe my daughter will love it when she sees it for the first time tomorrow morning. I have been spending a lot of time recently in our basement recently. My wife and I decided instead of going and spending a ton of money on Christmas gifts we would finish our basement (I think the gifts would have cost less :) ) But anyway we now have a place for our daughter to play and we can move a lot of stuff out of our upstairs living room. We just finished setting the room up for her...

Well, My daughter received an American Girl (type) doll for Christmas this year and of course the requests started pretty early in the day on Christmas. My Daughter is in gymnastics right now and she wanted her doll to be able to do some of the fun things that she does, she quickly requested a balance beam and a set of bars for her doll.
