The Dollhouse

I know there are pictures from when I was six.  (I'd just have to go through the slides and scan them)  I can remember opening it up.  I remember who was in the room.  I remember how I felt loved because my Dad made it.  When Anna was 3 1/2 dad redid it and gave it to her for Christmas.  Some new furniture mixed with the valuable, classic old that I had.  New Christmas trees out front and a cleaned up inside.  Anna loved it! 



Look at that face when she first saw it!







And since it's a Christmas dollhouse it comes out right before Thanksgiving every year.  This year Abigail is 3 1/2 and boy how she did love discovering it last night after bath!






Don't you agree... the toys with memories, ones that can make you remember your cherised childhood days, are the best.  This is one for me.  Some day I'll have to scan a picture of the first little house Scott and I moved into after our wedding.  It was this house... right down to the molding above the front door.  I literally moved into my dollhouse!

  1. What a sweet post!
    We are a big doll house lovers in our family too. I never had a big fancy one growing up, but I sure did want one. I guess that's why I love that the girls love theirs so much.
    It's neat that you bring it out right before the holidays...but I don't know if I could keep that beauty hidden for the rest of the year!:)
    Enjoy the day

  2. When Anna and Em were upstairs for Mikey's party they were playing with Em's Dollhouse... There is just something about a dollhouse.. I had one that my Dad made, but it didn't make the move with us (Obviously not my doing) so I built one for Em a few years ago. She loved it just as much!!! And yes, you moved into your dollhouse.. that is funny, and not so surprising!!
