A Dollhouse Christmas

Yesterday, I had my old roommates over for a very Dollhouse Christmas brunch!  Although we were missing a couple girls, it was great to catch up just the four of us.  I hadn't seen Elise in over a year!!  We got right to it and started off with bagels, a frittata, fruit, and candy cane martinis (we don't mess around, vodka before 12:00 is OK in our books).

After we stuffed our faces and I had to unbutton my jeggings (yes, that happened), we exchanged presents and then began our elf work making gingerbread houses!

Making gingerbread houses took a lot of effort and definitely was not easy (at least for Caitie and I). Even though our house came out the best- with shingles, christmas lights, and hedges leading up to the front door (hahaha), we ended up with a collapsed roof.  On that same note, Elise and Ali's houses didn't even make it onto the elevator before deteriorating.  I think it's safe to say none of us are architects...

All in all it was a festive and fun Dollhouse reunion.  Definitely a yearly tradition.... different Christmas activity next year? I think yeesss.
