American Girl

My 9 year old has become totally obsessed with American Girl dolls and their accessories.  As someone who rarely played with dolls, it has been so neat to see her and her sister playing with the dolls, imagining they are school teachers and other scenarios to walk the dolls through.  Amalia has been watching Youtube videos of hair accessories and styles for the dolls and has become very good at doing different styles to their hair.

I took her and 2 friends and Addie to the American Girl store in Tyson’s Corner on Sunday.  What a great time we all had. We had about an hour to explore the store and look at all the amazing things.  Then we had lunch in the cafe and all of the girls got to pick out a small accessory.

I don’t know how long this will last, but it was a memory that I will have for a long time, just seeing her face and excitement.
