Party & Presents

making a wish and blowing out the candles

Hi all!

I posted in a hurry last night to announce the winner of my giveaway and told you I'd be back later with birthday pics.
I was so tired last night that I even fell asleep before one of my favorite shows came on. Now I'll have to catch it in a few days on On-Demand.
Anyways, I'm all rested so here's a few snapshots.
Katie asked for a princess cake but once we got to the store and she saw the Spongebob she wanted that instead.
Blue icing...my favorite....NOT QUITE!

She's 8 now but she still loves to play with baby dolls and that is what she had asked for ~ anything having to do with her dolls.
I went in search of a new doll stroller but surprisingly had a really hard time finding one. Most doll strollers are made for small children (3-5 yr. old) which is strange to me. I don't think Katie is too old to play with babies whether they be dolls, Barbies or whatever else.
It's called imagination....something that most kids (including mine) lack now a days.
Anyways after much searching I was able to find this stroller at ToysRUs.com. They don't have these in their stores. It's made by Badger Basket and it was the only stroller that had an adjustable height on the handle.
I was apprehensive about ordering it but I am so glad that I did. It's perfect for her and she loves it.
I also dug out the old wooden doll crib & highchair that I once played with as a child so that she could enjoy them as she plays house and Mom to her little ones.

When she gets bored playing dolls she can get one of several new games that she got including Hungry Hungry Hippo, Oopsie Daisy and Froggy.
All in all I'd say she really enjoyed her day.

I don't think there is a thing wrong with playing with dolls when you're 8 years old! After all, aren't mothers just grown up little girls who have dolls of their own?? It just shows she has a nurturing and kind heart. Glad you have a great day!!
Merry Christmas to you and your family.
Blessings,

She's a beautiful girl! Wow, that's some cake! Let them be children, tender feelings in a child are just so precious. Time will take care of growing up, she's not too old for dolls.! Good for you!
