The first half an hour or more was spent trying on various "dress-up" outfits and accessories. I think they each tried on three or more outfits. Then it was time for a tea party and playing with the dollhouse.
Abby was excited to have new girl friends. At one point, she ran into the room where her Daddy was working on the computer and said, "Daddy, I have some new friends!" She loves her (boy) cousins, but I'm sure it was nice to have someone understand her need for "Fancy!"
Yes, I realize Abby's not smiling in the picture, but being the Hostess takes concentration and hard work. And that spot on the black outfit is my camera's fault, not a laundry problem.
