Christmas In The Old Dollhouse

When the baby finally falls asleep Mama will take a nice hot bubble bath before calling it a night.
The den on the second floor is very cozy with
it's fireplace and the door on the left that
leads to the outdoor deck.
They made a gingerbread house together earlier in the day . Tomorrow their guests will arrive to
help them celebrate. Oops .... Mama left the milk
out and forgot to cover the bread . She knows
she has mice in this old house.
They'll have a quick breakfast in the morning &
then open gifts together .
Tomorrow the dining room table will be surrounded with family & laughter and a holiday feast . Mama had no idea that while she sits up in her bedroom singing baby to sleep & working
on her knitting that they were being
visited by a man in a red suit with a long
white beard working as fast as he could piling
gifts under their modest little tree.
Christmas decorations adorn even the deck outside.

Often deer will come into the yard & drink out
of the little garden pond.

Awwww! I love your dolls' house - the kitty on the rug in the bedroom, dog on the bed, etc.. What a great outdoor setting with the deer!!. Makes me want to set my yard up again. I had one set up next to my Vermont Jr. Farmhouse, but it took up so much room - maybe again when I get some things moved. Thanks for sharing! Hope your holidays are wonderful.
