Our stockings--it was so great to see my stocking that I've had for as long as I can remember. Richard had gotten some presents for Cookie, so I got her a stocking & decorated it with glitter glue. It's going to be her 18th Christmas!
The tree looks complete now that it has presents underneath :)\
On Friday we went to the Abbey House Museum at Kirkstall Abbey--we'd never actually been, and it was much more involved than we thought it would be. There's a whole Victorian street set up with little shops like this grocery store. There was an ironmonger, a chemist, a clothier, and examples of different homes--upper class, middle class, working class.
There's a dress-up section, too!
I love this temperance movement propaganda--they make a great point!
Upstairs in the museum they have a huge Victorian childhood section
This doll house was amazing
Also in the girls' section--"Miss Pre-Teen's battery operated Vacuum Cleaner"
That would be so disappointing at Christmas, haha!
I'd much rather have this game--"Exciting, Interesting, Educative!"
