It was late June when the American Girl Magazine first made an appearance in our mailbox & I casually tossed it to my girls telling them they "got mail". It took exactly one week before I had to take the magazine away from my girls because they were fighting over it/pulling it from each other/ripping pages to get their grimey little hands on it. They were obsessed. They had picked their favorites & Aubrie even tore her girl out to be placed in her most treasured spot...the inners of her Bible.
We didn't really do any type of vacation this summer so Bferg & I decided that a trip to the American Girl store & staying in a hotel on our way to STL last weekend would be our family vaca. (Living large!)
|Lily pretty much wanted it all...we had to reign her in; multiple times.|
|Aubrie had her sights on McKenna.|
|She carried this box for the next 35 minutes that we were in the store.|
|Daddy paying the bill.|
|Two happy little girls!|
|Mommy in training. She has carried her on her hip for the last 4 days straight.|
I have a feeling that every future trip to St. Louis will have to include a stop by our new favorite store. Heaven knows that the only way to afford it is to spread out every purchase over the next 5 years!
Love my little girls who LOVE their little babies.
