Ally received her new American Girl catalog in the mail this week. Boy was she excited! This is how I have found her many times throughout the day.She's already created both her birthday list and her Christmas list (it certainly makes shopping easy)! Here she is showing me the new Bitty Twins. . .. . . and the new Bitty Twin kitchen! Here is all the new Kit and Ruthie stuff!!She so badly wants a "big" girl doll--particularly Kit. The past month we've been reading the 6 books in the Kit series and the new Ruthie book in preparation for the "Kit Kittredge: American Girl" movie. We read one chapter a night until we were done. I was amazed how Ally clung to every word and how she comprehended each story. She was so excited when we finally were able to go see the movie last Sunday afternoon after church. Daddy and Claire dropped us off so it would be just the two of us. Or should I say THREE of us! Ally brought her Bitty Twin, Emmy, who pretty much goes everywhere with Ally. (Ally takes being a "mommy" very seriously)
I highly recommend the Kit movie. It was excellent! It was such a clean, family-oriented film and that's rare--even for a G-rated movie. We laughed, I cried (several times--take those tissues!), and everyone clapped and clapped at the end. Ally's already asking when it will be out on DVD!! Oh the joys of having girls! I wouldn't trade it for the world!
