a girl and her doll......

We've had a good weekend of birthday bliss, stretched out over 3 days! On Saturday we took E to the store with some of her very special, much pondered over, birthday money. (Thanks Grandma W!) She is definitely a natural "saver!" She loves the idea of having a little bank full of possibilities, but at the same time she wanted something special to play with. She's been contemplating a more expensive purchase, but her thrifty nature couldn't bear to part with all her money at once. When she saw this girl at the store, it was love at first sight! She made up her mind instantly and quickly calculated that this doll would cost her much less and she would still have her little bank nearly full, and have more left over for accessories! (What girl doesn't love accessories!) She named her Susan, and later that night Auntie Kate gifted her with a beautiful handmade little dress to match the one we made this summer! It was designed for another doll, but fits Susan just fine (it's maybe a little short, but we think she'd like to wear some cute bloomers under it!). Now we have a happy birthday girl and her doll, and she even told me I could play with her while she's at school today......I might just go dress her up a few times!
