The kitties have moved in!

I finished renovating the house for Henry in the early morning hours of Christmas Eve.

In addition to the painting, three rooms got new wood floors and two received new "tile". 

kitchen and green bedroom


The kitty family moved in on Christmas morning.


Henry's excitement made everything totally worthwhile.  The kitties have been very busy trying out the stairs, the potty, the bathtub and the bed (under the covers, of course).  And, we've mostly dissuaded Henry from crawling into the house or using it as yet another percussion instrument.

I hope your holidays were joyous.

Oh my gosh - you did an awesome job! What a lovely gift. I love seeing kids given something gloriously not-plastic.

Sooo cute!! The house is looking GREAT and I love those Calico Critters families...they represent a pretty narrow idea of "family," I know, but they're so darn cute. (My own family rendered as Calico Critters would be quite a menagerie!) My older daughter had the bunny family when she was little. I might have to adopt the hedgehogs.
