Oh, hello there! It's sweet little Mattie...
....and her cute little dog, Dickens!
Wonder what's going on inside?
Looks like fun!
Mmm,do I smell cookies baking???
Hmmm, looks a little serious in this room...
Someone's left their beer on the piano, and Mr. Pinkerton-Spice is ready to have a taste! Mrs. Pinkerton-Spice must have already gotten into the wine at home before she left because she is dressed for the wrong season! Nice and rosy-toasty then are we, Mrs. P-S.?
Wonder what our hosts are up to....
Uh, oh, The Mister is getting an earful for forgetting to remove his hat immediately upon entering the house.....tsk, tsk.....Well, really, the poor fellow just came home after a long day and he made a straight bee-line for the Gluhwein, can you blame the poor chap???
I mean what's a fellow to do with a house full of family for a fortnight?!
Speaking of which.....the children are being awfully quiet....
Here she is!!! The little doll (tee hee) is sitting quietly on the bed with the sweet tiny hand-embroidered sheet. She's still quite cold from the buggy ride over and she's not moving until she gets the call for some Gingerbread Cookies!!!!
All this talk about cookies as made me hungry! I'm headed to my own kitchen to make some of The Barefoot Contessa's Ultimate Ginger Cookies! Click on the link below for the recipe!!!
