The Dollhouse Fairy

Well - we survived Irene.  We lost power for only a day, and it was plenty long enough to make us really appreciate electricity.  There are some in our area that still don't have power, and plenty of roads still closed and traffic lights out.    I did snap this sweet picture of Banana while she hugged her favorite blue bunny "Blueby" while she watched the hurricane outside.  Our blue tarp did survive on the roof, but we still had plenty of bowls and buckets to catch the drips.

We stocked up on library books before the storm and this one has become one of Boo's favorites.

She decided to really spend some time arranging her dollhouse in hopes that a fairy may stop by for a visit.  After lots and lots of waiting, Boo was very surprised this morning to discover that a fairy had paid her dollhouse a visit in the night.....

She even left a trail of fairy dust everywhere she went throughout the house.   Boo thinks there were two fairies since they set the table with two plates and apparently feasted on turkey.

It looks like they also spent some time on the couch in front of the fire and playing with the dogs.

Boo was so excited showing Daddy her discovery this morning.  She keeps discovering things inside the house the fairies did - like leave a purse on the bed and took clothes from the closet.

She keeps checking  back every hour to see if the fairies have visited again, but ever since big sister has been at the barn - we haven't seen a thing.... strange...  :)

Just found your blog via the "Next Blog" button on Blogger - glad I did! I always get a little thrill when I find another homeschooler's blog at random. :) Following you now too.

LOVE the doll house! I built one from a kit for my niece a few years ago, but my niece's didn't have fairies living in it! :) So cute!

So glad you came through the storm okay, we were thinking of you all :-)

Hannah has just read that book as part of her summer reading challenge at our library and she loved it! It's such a sweet book, and i love that the fairies visit your house too ;-)

Okay, I MUST come visit now so I can play with Boo and her dollhouse and read that book. I miss little girl toys so much.
