but the dolllhouse Abigail got for Christmas (purchased in October, when dollhosuesgalore.com was having a phenomenal sale) is finally put together.  On Christmas morning, she ripped open the wrapping paper to find a plain cardboard box inside, and declared (in a moment preserved on video) in disgust, "I got a box" before stomping off to find something else to open.

Then it sat for about six weeks before I cracked open the box, only to find that two pieces (including a key support piece) were broken.  Thankfully, Kidkraft replaces the pieces for free, no questions asked.  A couple of weeks for the new parts to arrive, then a couple more weeks of not getting to it, and finally this morning we started.  Abigail had cleaned her room enough for us to actually find a place for it, and I didn't want to lose that window of opportunity.

The instructions were clear, but unfortunately not easily understood by me, and so my patient husband ended up with the task of actually figuring out how the pieces fit together and which screws/bolts went where.  It turns out the replacement pieces are from a different version of the same house, so the graphics are different, leaving some rooms with some strangely contrasting designs on different walls.  But the kids love it, and have now filled it with Star Wars figures.
