When they're all together in the house or entertaining friends, Donnie says they tend to all flock to one particular room. "This is the spot where everyone gathers," he said about the impressive kitchen with a huge island and succession of high-top stools.

Of course, living almost lakeside means they spend a lot of time outdoors too. In the clip Jenny shared on Instagram, the kids could also be seen throwing themselves down an enormous slip and slide in their front yard and playing in the pool too.

"This isn’t an extravagant home," Donnie explained. "But there is no greater symbol of our love for each other than this house and how much love has gone into it."
