My Mom is going to the new American Girl Doll Store in DC this Sunday. She is going to see the authors of the new Marie-Grace and Cecile books, Sarah Masters Buckley and Denise Lewis Patrick. She wants to get her books signed and maybe get a new historical doll, Cecile.
I already have three historical sisters that I don't interact much with since they tend to stay in their time periods. There is Felicity who is from Colonial Williamsburg at the time of the Revolutionary War. Then, Josefina who is from the early 1800's in what is now the state of New Mexico, but wasn't a state then. Cool, huh? Finally, there is Addy. She was a slave from the time of the Civil War. She ran away to freedom and is living in Philadelphia, PA.
I am the only modern girl in our family. Sometimes I wish for a sister to share modern things with, but then I'd have to share my clothes.
Anyway, I don't get to go to the store this weekend because I have been before. I was there during the "soft opening" in June. That is where the store is open for business before the Grand Opening. When I went I got to have my ears pierced!
Here is a picture of me in the store in June. Can you guess what I am doing? Yep, I'm hanging on the hooks in the bathroom. I just realized that this is the only picture that Mom took of me that day. She was so excited to be in the store, she forgot to take pictures. Maybe she'll get some on Sunday and I can post them here!
Bye till then,
