Bella was so taken with it that she climbed in before I had a chance to fully assemble it.
I couldn't put it together right away because my aunt and uncle were picking me up to go to the Festival of Lessons and Carols at St. Andrew's Cathedral.
The cathedral is beautiful on the inside. Really big, with soaring vaulted ceilings. There are golden stars painted on parts of the ceiling. I found the big dipper.
At any rate, the carols were sung by the Grand Rapids Choir of Men and Boys. They did an excellent job. The lessons were read by choir members and people from the community. One of them was Uncle Charlie, from Children's Bible Hour. That was a pleasant surprise.
When I got home, Bella was champing at the bit for me to finish off her house. As you can see, she loves it.
Thanks, Mimi and Papa!
Stay tuned for the Jingle Bella Christmas Countdown!
