American Girl comes to St. Louis

Kara has been diligently saving every penny she got for birthday, Christmas and chores to buy a "real" American Girl doll.  She received an "Our Generation" doll from Target (an 18" knock-off doll) for Christmas 2010 and quickly realized she wanted the real thing.

After lots of saving and hard work she had the moolah saved (gulp...it's a lot!)  And wonders of wonders, a new store opened up not far from us.  Here are some pics of the excursion to get "Ruthie" (Kit's best friend for those who speak Amercian Girl) and have a nice tea with her new doll.

 Micah and Aunt Michelle joined us!

 Kara pays for her own purchase!

Drinking tea (hot cocoa) and Ruthie has her own chair and cup!
 Micah, a little out of place with all the pink around but still a happy boy :)

 Her afternoon tea included lots of yummy sandwiches, fruit and desserts.
 Aunt Shell chose the "picnic platter."

All in all, a GREAT day!  And we have "Ruthie" the newest member of our family!
