Christmas, Part 1: the girls

Santa had BIG dreams to fill this year for these two little ones.

The greatest desires of their hearts had gone and were going the way of retirement.

I mean really...when they make an adorable American Girl doll, and then they NAME it after you (kind of)...how could you NOT want it, desperately!!!!

Samantha's letter to santa went something like this:
Dear Santa,
Please, please, please. I am begging you.
Please bring me the Samantha
American Girl doll.

And in case your not up on the latest AG news, Samantha was retired this summer, much to our surprise and upset. But our Samantha knew that if anybody could make it happen...Santa could.

And guess what?????
HE DID!!!!!!!! that Santa...he's amazing! I think he must have literally jumped up and down for joy when he found her!

And then, wouldn't you know it...Kristen's doll Kirsten was being retired at the end of the year. She found that out sometime in December and looked on the AG website and saw that the doll had been sold out. You should have seen the tears well up in her eyes when she announced that news to me....it was truly, the saddest thing. She worried so badly that I wouldn't be able to get it for her. So once again...the trust and faith in Santa was desperate!

And just look at the peace on that face down there...when she saw it was her.

Santa's elves were also very busy and made little beds for the dolls with their initials (same as their owners...isn't that fancy???). They also made adorable little bedding sets to go with their beds so they would have a safe place to lay their heads.

It was a very sweet Christmas!

and on another note: i still haven't refinished that big old cabinet back there......ahhhhhh things to do.

How cute! My little girl asked Santa for candy. That's it...just candy. I don't think I'll ever get off that easy again!

Love the Christmas pj's, they're adorable! And I'm so with you on hoping for better things in 2010. You guys have had a rough couple of years :(
