Girls Morning Out!

Last year around Christmas, I really knew that I wanted to do American Girl dolls for our girls for Christmas this year. I remember drooling over the catalog as a girl and similar to doing Disney World with our kids - it is just one of those things I felt strongly about doing with and for them.

I had a few freelance writing jobs this year and was able to stash away one of my checks to be able to do this for Christmas! The anticipation was fun for me and surprising them was great! Throughout this year, the girls have been more exposed to these dolls through their friends and I was so excited with my little hidden surprise for them.

I had decided though, to let them go and pick out their own doll instead of trying to choose and perhaps pick the wrong one and have hurt feelings on one side or the other ~ so I made up a little certificate with four dolls on it and the day after Christmas, we went together to pick out their dolls. My Mom gave them certificates to pick out an outfit as well!
