Haunted House

Gwen loves this Haunted House that I made when I was pregnant with her. Actually, long story, it is actually the SAME house I adored growing up. My mom couldn't find another one for me, so she color copied the entire thing and sent me the sheets to cut out, glue together, then laminate. It was a tedious process, but it is definitely worth it. Last year, Gwen called it a 'barn' and wanted to play with it. But I wouldn't let her. This year I thought she was old enough to give it a try.

It became the newest 'doll house' and she was enamored! She woke up for the next week with the request, "I go downstairs and see my scary house?" as the first thing she said to me in the morning. Hey, at least it was a change from "I watch a show?" as her first request! Here she is playing with Daddy.


  1. How great that it is basically the "same" house!

  2. No wonder she loves it! It's adorable! Old relics are the best. I'm a softy and attach some sort of sentiment to everything so this would be incredibly special :) So great that you actually played with it's twin growing up! I bet Gwen is really excited for Halloween, then, too! I can't wait to see pictures of both of your girls :)

  3. I've looked everywhere for that too! Well...here. http://www.ebay.com/itm/vintage-Hallmark-pop-up-displays-1964-65-advertisement-Halloween-/110764097405?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item19ca0dff7d#ht_3820wt_754

    good luck!
