And of course, my favorite...
I LOVED the American Dolls growing up.
In my family, Santa always leaves a series of notes hidden around the house that lead to our "big" present. Sort of a Christmas Day scavenger hunt, if you will. I still remember the Christmas my 8-year-old self discovered the beautiful rectangular box hidden in the downstairs bathroom shower. Inside, I beheld my beloved Samantha doll. I'm not sure that any other Christmas could compete with that.
Reece and I have been discussing what we should get our daughter for her very first Christmas. Considering the fact that we already own all the seasons of 30 Rock and Arrested Development (her two favorite shows), we have been hard pressed for ideas on what to get a 5-month-old.
Today, one of my co-workers brought up her love for the American Dolls, and I proceeded to spend my break time scouring the website, reliving my days spent pining over the catalog and arguing with my sister over who's doll had better clothes.
I was horrified to discover that the people behind the dolls have decided to discontinue the original four. Samantha is already gone, and Kirsten is on the chopping block this year.
So an idea popped into my head.
Why not get Lola started early?
I called Reece to tell him my brilliant idea, and he seemed to be on board until I mentioned how much these COLLECTOR'S PIECES cost.
Let's just say we might have to make some room, because starting this Christmas the American Dolls are moving in.
