This year, there was one Christmas gift that I just couldn't wait for the girls to see...
This is the Vermont Farmhouse Jr. kit by Real Good Toys. I wish I could take some credit for this one, but my husband did all the hard work--painting, assembling, and (my favorite part!) wiring it for lights.
I love the lights--they makes it all seem so real and the whole house glows so beautifully at night!
The girls love it and are constantly playing with it--rearranging the furniture and creating new little scenes. We talk about what things need to be added (curtains and some kitchen shelving being tops on the list) and what things we could possibly make for it (some towels for the bathroom and quilts for the bed will be made shortly.)
I'm looking forward to seeing how this little home changes as the girls age. I remember, as a girl, attempting to create all kinds of miniature items for my dollhouse. I can't wait to see what my girls come up with!
