We didn’t totally ignore Christmas. There were stockings and little things (gift cards are small!). And it wouldn’t be Christmas if I didn’t receive a doll. This new Cleo De Nile from Tom is the only one in the house. Even my little action figure Edward who was left behind is now safely in storage with the other action figures. Cleo has no idea she has a whole family who will descend on her in a few months.
The base of my mother’s china cabinet the Monsters used to hang out on was ruined in the flood, but we saved the upper half. Once we can replace our furniture, we’ll find a new lower half.
Not sure if the dolls will go there again. I’ve been looking for better options, because these kids can sure attract the dust, and cleaning them takes a lot of time. We’ll see.
