STOP ME NOW!!!!! Step away from the American Girl Store!!!



I had the pleasure of going up to Seattle last week to see my newest granddaughter...Miss Ravi Grace...and boy had she grown in the 2 months since I had seen her...lots of smiles for Nene!!!!



This is Stella showing off her new stroller....lololol....and now its a double...!!!!!!

SO while I was in Seattle my daughter took us to the American Girl Store....HOLY COW!!! Was Nene in heaven or WHAT!!?!?!? I cant even tell you how excited Iam about these!!! I did exercise restraint...because my granddaughters are still too young...BUT when they get older HOLD ME BACK!!!! It was ALL I could do to stop myself!!!!



LOOK....its Stella at the grand piano!!!!!!



having a picnic....



ironing....



cooking!!!!



OMG cowgirls with horses!!!! THIS just might be the first one since Nene LOVES horses!!!!



tea parties!



and look...a double stroller...lol



matching clothes!!!!



And baby ones!!!!



I just cant stand the cuteness!!!!








so we decided this one is Ravi...



and this one is Stella!!

SO...have any of you had these sweeties for your kids...grandkids??? Im in love over them!!!

Summer is in full gear here...already is HOT HOT HOT....but it promises to be a full filled summer!!!!

Ravi (and her parents) will be visiting in a few weeks. My daughter is back at work and travels a bit for her job...and she will be down in So Cal...so she decided to bring the family too!!!!

Most of my family including my other daughter have not seen Ravi yet so there will be a huge celebration!!!!

Then right after that Miss Red will be coming out for the Long Beach Quilt show.....and a fun filled week of sewing and shopping....

BUT right now...TOMORROW we leave for Hawaii, we will be there a week celebrating the fact that we have made it 29 years of wedded bliss!!!! a week at the turtle Bay resort....BLISS!!!

We havent been on a vacation together in a few years..in the last 2 years..we have had some pretty sad deaths, lost some very good friends, to cancer and heart attack...lost a few family members who went before they should have...and have had a couple of dear friends diagnosed with life threatening illness. It has been one right after the other:(

BUT...in this SAME 2 years... I have had 3 HEALTHY grandbabies born ...watched my niece marry her sweetheart....reconnected with dear ones....watched my dog thrive after almost dying....and retired into my dream house. SO it has been a rollercoaster...lots of sadness and WHYS??? BUT more JOY than I have ever felt!!

I have learned that life is not certain so live it as much as you can!!! There is no more time for things or people that dont make you better than you are just by knowing them!!!!

So with that said...Im off to pack!!!! Aloha!!!!

My daughter loved American Girls books when she was young (about 20 years ago!). My little cat Nicky also likes American Girls. He found a little doll I won at an auction and carries it around the house with him.
