This poor magazine. It has been leafed through and played with and dragged around for months. I've stapled and taped it more times than I can count. The cover finally just fell apart. It is an American Girl Doll catalog and that was all Ellie wanted for her birthday this year. I have purposely avoided the American Girl Dolls for as long as possible because I knew that with my two little princesses, once we started down that path there would be no going back! But all of Ellie's little friends have them and that was what she wanted for her birthday this year. SO! The weekend before her birthday we loaded our crew and headed to L.A.
The girls were beyond excited. They went to sleep immediately the night before and woke up so giddy they could hardly stand it. It was seriously like Christmas morning. (Notice the magazine next to Ellie's window. It has accompanied us everywhere for the last few months.)
Kole was pumped too. For what he didn't know, but he could feel the excitement in the air!
The boys. (Two REALLY good sports)
The girls. I have to admit that I too fell in love with this store. More then once I debated picking out my own doll with matching accessories!
Quick drive back down along the coast and we were home again.
And boy did I ever have two happy little ones. Girls and their dolls in matching pajama's. (Thanks daddy!)
Then the girls drew music notes and had their dolls and animals put on a little concert.
Even Kole had a party with the dolls.
Until he started poking their eyes out causing shrieks of stress and anxiety. Party's over bud.
We've had lots of hair styling going on...
So far year 7 is off to a great start!
