Our Dollhouse!

About 6 months before we left Germany, Auntie Kim came to the door and said "Jody, there is a huge doll house out here, let's go get it for the girls!" So we did! Someone was moving and throwing away this huge, cute doll house! We really had no room for it at the time so it sat on our balcony. When we came to NM, it stayed outside again, and they played with it, but it was cold so they would only go for alittle bit and then come in. Mind you this whole time Kevin has wanted to get rid of it, and I kept telling him "No, one day I will have a huge spot they will be able to play with it!" Plus, can you imagine what a new one will cost, when I can fix this one up! It's big enough for all 3 of them to play at! That in itself is Huge! Well yesterday was clean out the garage day...Oh My!! Kevin and the girls decided to bring in the Fisher Price Picnic Table and this Kick Butt Dollhouse! So I had him bring them to my tub, it was the only place big enough I could think of to Scrub them off at! They were both really nasty and dirty, and the dollhouse had been colored on by the previous owner. It took me about a good hour to really scrub, clean, and magic eraser both items, but when they were done, it was so worth it! We took both to the game room, and the girls and I went to find their Princess rug, and we sat it all up! They are loving it so far, now all we need is some dollhouse toys to go in it! :)
