American Girl

Gracie and I had the chance to take in the American Girl store at the Galleria in Dallas!  And..Oh Em Gee...that place is every doll loving girl's dream!! 
I got Gracie all ready to go with her, "Wal-Mart" babies, and she was so excited to just be able to take her baby into a store, she could have cared less what store! 
 We started our visited there with a girls lunch in the American Girl Bistro and it was surprisingly good and filling!  Gracie loved having her baby sit with us in her little high chair.
 Our date for our "girls lunch" was Hope, Kelly and Krissa.  Hope has had Krissa for a few years and every year adds to her collection of personal belongings for her!
 After lunch we headed down stairs to do some shopping!!  Gracie worked hard at drawing her favorite book on this card, after she finished we took it to the register and got a free book!  
 Gracie was so excited to come home with this famous red American Girl bag.  Yes, I splurged and bought her the popular bitty baby and so far, it has been worth every penny!  Gracie hasn't put her down!
 She loves wrapping her up in the blanket, and "shhh, baby night night"!
It seems my love for babies and playing "momma" have been passed down to my baby girl!  I can't wait to see her play babies as she grows older!  As for the "My American Girl" doll, she will have to wait till Gracie can understand how to take care of them.  Until then, I'm saving my cash, because I'm going to need every bit of it!! ;)

  1. My mom bought Katie hers when she turned 9. Adie has to wait till she turns 9 which is next year. That way they are old enough to understand the amount of money that the doll actually costs and that they need to take care of it. My mom also found out that the Our Generation dolls at Target and the Friends Boutique dolls are Walmart are the same size so the clothes and accesories are cheaper to buy. LOL
