A childhood treasure...

When my sister and I were little girls, our grandpa on our mom's side made us a beautiful dollhouse that we treasured for all of our growing up years. We were able to paint it and wallpaper it ourselves and made it to pretty closely resemble our own childhood home. We played with it constantly and for every Christmas and birthday we were always asking for new furniture and accessories for it. When we moved out of the house and my parents moved to Bolivia, one of us had to find a place to store it. Since Sarah was the first to get married, we always assumed she would be the first to have a girl also...but we were wrong! So she has had it stored at her in-laws' house for the last 7 years. But lo and behold, it turns out I was the first to have a girl, so this week, Sarah and Dustin packed up the dollhouse and brought it to us for Anna Kate! She's still a little young for it, but I know she will love it as much as we did. And, yes, Sarah, if you ever have a girl, we will let you borrow it!
