A Quick Recap

We've been: Playing games.

Making all kinds of treats.

Opening gifts.

Posing for pictures. (Lots of pictures.)

Opening more gifts.

Setting up and playing with gifts.


More playing.
And more playing.

This is a playhouse the girls wanted very much. As you can see, Pop and Mem came through. There was some doubt as to whether this structure would actually fit in our house. It does. Barely.

Grandad (Pastor Dad) has already noted some Biblical similarities. He says we're all set to celebrate the Feast of Booths (also known as the Feast of Tabernacles) next year.

A word of warning: if you meet Prince Charming don't refer to this toy as a "tent". It is a structure. A non-collapsible, super-fun, bigger than my closet, structure.

Have I mentioned that our home also has a swelling population of Barbies, their cars, their clothes and their friends?

Or that I punched out three paper dolls and their 150 clothes, hats, shoes, etc. for over an hour Thursday morning?

And that we have two beautiful American Girl dolls and some of their vast multitude of accessories?

And much, much more?

Despite all this, while at a Bible story-time yesterday afternoon, Polly (when asked by the teacher) declared her new Bible to be her favorite gift. While I don't exactly believe her, it's a nice thought.

The play *structure* looks like loads of fun! Our boys got a big road mat for their toy cars... at least it lays flat. ;)

Glad you had a Merry Christmas! :) Thanks for the pics!

How delightful! My daughters were given an enormous dollhouse by a neighbor a few weeks before Christmas.

And I purchased the cutest paper dolls made of felt. Thankfully, my mom was here to cut out all the little pieces. I don't even think she got a blister. ;)

I'm glad you had a nice Christmas. I had pictures uploaded to my blog, but never did get around to publishing them. It's been a busy, wonderful month enjoying time with my parents. I miss them already...
