By Jen and Brianna
This year we recalled many happy memories of past American Girl Christmases, including when Brianna got her first doll at AGP in Chicago. She had planned for Molly but Molly was suddenly retired days before we went! She bonded with Saige and the rest is history. Last Christmas saw the arrival of Maryellen, Dakota, and Addy’s bed!
In contrast, this Christmas was a little more subdued, but you know there were at least a few red boxes under the tree.
Brianna asked for the ombre recital outfit. She anticipates that her own ballet recital outfit will be a similar color this year because their theme is “Aurora Borealis.” The outfit is beautiful, but there are a few quirks. The headband is so tough to get on that we were concerned we would wreck Isabelle’s meet hairstyle. The shoes are really tough to get on as well. Our tutu is undergoing “training” with a rubber band as the tulle sticks out in front but not in back.
Jen made life easy for Grandma by ordering Kit’s floral print dress when it was on sale. The quality is terrific and Kit just looks good in everything! The neutral sandals are great for other outfits too. The barrette works well and is easy to use.
It was hard to say no the lavender sparkle “Purchase with Purchase” outfit that was offered online for about 14.00 in mid-December. The colors are pretty and the front zip is unique. It could use some pants though! Can we start a social media tag to get some AG pants? #mydollneedspants
Finally, there was the “Dolls at Work” activity box, which also comes with a cute t-shirt being modeled by Dakota. The Dolls at Work activity box has lots of fun activities that come with it. Your doll can do many different types of work/services with this book!
I hope you enjoyed our post for today! Happy New Years Eve!
