Merry Christmas from the Big Girls :)

Happy Holidays, Merry Christmas and Seasons Greetings to you all! 
I haven't had much doll time lately, but the girls and I managed to get out the American Girls and a Karito Kid and dress them up in some festive outfits.  We had a lot of fun fixing their hair and sprucing them all up as they unfortunately have been stored away in bins for a few months as we just don't have room yet to display them. 

Here's Araceli, (Karito Kid Pita) in AG Kaya's trading outfit, which I bought a few months ago during one of AG's monthly sales.
I would eventually like to get a newer longer hair wig for Araceli as well as repaint her lips, but she's such a cute doll either way!

Listed below are our American Girl dolls in the order that they came into our doll family. :)

Elizabeth in the AG "Soft as Snow" outfit. 

Quinn (my other 2nd hand Elizabeth doll) in AG Rebecca's Performace outft. 
(I still haven't customized her, lol.) 

Samantha in her Frilly Frock outfit.  
(I would love to get some of her Holiday outfits someday.) 

Caroline in her Traveling outfit.  
I think this dress is so cute and festive! 

Greta (Truly Me #59) in the AG Fair Isle outfit. 

Julie in her Holiday outfit. 
(She's one of my favorites!) 

Grace (Girl of the Year 2015) in her Opening Night outfit. 
(I still haven't customized her either, haha!) 

Lea (Girl of the Year 2016) in Julie's Winter Coat and Hat. 
(Pumpkin Pie designed this ensemble.) :) 

Addy in her Tartan Holiday outfit. 
(Such a pretty and festive dress!) 

Anouk (Truly Me #28) in another one of Rebecca's Performance outfits. 

And lastly here is Kateri (Truly Me #66) in Josefina's Feast Day outfit. 

My favorite AG clothing to collect are the Holiday outfits (and PJs, lol.)  I am so happy and grateful for how my collection has grown and I hope to continue to add these beautiful dolls and their pretty outfits to our little doll family.
The girls and I had a great time fixing everyone up and posing them around the tree. 

This year, Little Button asked for her very first American Girl doll (Truly me # 64) and although she's only 6, she is very good with dolls at this point!  Pumpkin Pie also asked for an American Girl doll (Tenney), which I was surprised about since her interest in dolls has faded a bit (she's 9).
As for me, I am hoping for Gabriela (Girl of the Year 2017).  I guess we will have to wait and see what Santa brings!  

I would love to know what is on your dolly wish list this Christmas??

Anyway, I just wanted to wish you all a wonderful Christmas and many blessings to you all for a healthy, happy new year filled with lots of time to enjoy your doll hobbies. :)


  1. Thanks for sharing these photos. I have gotten interested in 18 inch dolls recently. I don't know really know why as I generally like smaller dolls. I have one AG. I am not sure who she is. I bought her second hand. Someone in my local doll club is going to clean her up for me.
    What I am hoping for (Santa are you listening?) is a Marian Magic Attic Megan from 2003.
    Happy Doll-iday to you!

    1. Wow, I hope you get Megan for Christmas! She's a lovley doll. I'd be curious to know who your AG doll is once she's fixed up. Maybe she's a Truly Me doll?
      Thanks for the Doll-iday wishes, Dorothy and same to you! :)

  2. Hi Farrah!
    All the girls look lovely dressed to nines in their glad rags. Hope you have a wonderful Christmas with your family, and that Santa is kind to you. :)
    Big hugs,

  3. Merry Christmas! I hope that all your dolly wishes came true. I got some dolly things that I'll be putting on my blog.

    Don't be too hard on yourself for not getting doll projects done currently. Now that my two girls are adults (and one is out of the house) it's amazing how much more time and energy I have for myself. I wouldn't change all my years with my daughters for anything, but I do enjoy the new projects I'm able to tackle now.

    1. Thanks for saying that Barb. Your words really do ring true and I have felt less pressure to do these things lately. This year I'm trying to focus more on balance and enjoying my time with the girls as they really will grow up, but the dolls and crafts will always be here to enjoy later. :) I look forward to catching up on your blog!

  4. The dolls all look lovely in their holiday finest! :)

    Merry Christmas! 🎄

    1. Thanks JS! They probably will be staying in those outfits until the summer, haha!
      I hope you had a wonderful holiday season. :)

  5. Your girls are adorable in their lovely outfits! Happy Doll-idays to you.

  6. The girls look beautiful in holiday dresses. HAPPY,BLESSED 2019.
    Marion and Marilyn

    1. Thank you, Marion and Marilyn and a blessed new year to you as well!

  7. Merry Christmas to you and your girls! Everyone looks great. I didn't realize you had so many AG dolls. I never managed to get mine dressed for the holiday, oh well. Addy's Christmas dress is one of my all-time favorite AG dresses, I think it's so pretty.

    1. Hi Flo,
      Yup, the herd has grown a bit and I think I forgot to update as I went along, lol. I also love Addy's dress and I think it's my favorite one as well!

  8. What a lovely collection of big girls you have Farrah, and all dressed so beautifully.
    I hope that you, and of course, the girls, get your/their dolly wishes and that Santa is good to you all ;) And if he is, and you do get Gabriela, then I really look forward to seeing her here on your blog as she is one of my favourites too :)
    I hope you had a great Christmas and wish you and your family all the ver best for 2019.
    Big hugs xxx

    1. Thank you, Sharon, Santa was good, indeed! Gabriela has joined out little family and I can't wait to spruce her up and get her on the blog! (She was a 2nd hand doll from eBay) :) Best wishes for a wonderful New Year to you and your family as well. xoxo

  9. Well, Merry belated Christmas and Happy New Year LOL. I hope you had a wonderful time with your whole family and your Little ones.
    Take care.
