Merry and Bright..Today is Christmas Eve!

Hi everyone and Merry Christmas Eve!
I just wanted to stop in for a quick post before my father-in-law stops over for lunch.  We've had a very festive and bright Christmas season this year and it's hard to believe it's Christmas Eve already!  This afternoon we're heading over to the Christmas Eve children's Mass and then will come back here to spend the festivities with my family.
I can't believe how fast this month went by!
I started a new position at work and it's been so incredibly busy and I've had to sign on again after the girls go to bed, just to catch up for the next day.  Hopefully it all evens out soon.

We ended up getting several small snowstorms, so unlike last year's 70 deg Christmas Eve, we will definitely have a white Christmas. :)

The girls are sooooo excited and looking forward to everything.  Pumpkin Pie lost her first top tooth this morning so we will have a visit from the Tooth Fairy as well!
Christmas is so magical again when you have little kids and I'm eating it all up. :)

I hope you all have a wonderful day filled with family, friends (and wine)!
From our house to yours, we are wishing you a beautiful and blessed Christmas and a Happy New Year.
Happy Hanukkah and Happy Kwanza!  Happy Holidays to all.

Farrah, Hubby, Pumpkin Pie and Little Button

Retro Roller Disco Outfit by Our Generation-18 inch Doll Clothes Review #1

Our Generation Kendra doll in the Retro Roller Disco outfit

Hello, hello, how's everyone doing?  I hope you're all well and staying warm and avoiding the temptation of all of these doll sales going on lately!  I know I've pretty much used up my budget for December AND January at this point.  Whoops!  

Today's review is on the Retro Roller Disco outfit made by Our Generation and this is an outfit I purchased last year, but hadn't gotten around to posting until now. 

This set comes with a jacket, romper, pair of rollerskates and a hanger.  I got mine at during one of their many Our Generation merch sales.  I think I paid about $10 for this one.

The romper material reminds me of a towel.  Terrycloth perhaps?  Very easy to put on and off. 

The jacket appears very well made with a working zipper.  My daughter LOVED that it had a zipper.  It's also a very bright coral pink color.

I mean these are the cutest.  The wheels turn! Little brakes!  I love them. 

The jacket fit over the hands, but it was a bit of a squeeze. 

Looking good on Our Generation Kendra, although looks like I should've hiked the top up a little higher.  ;)

The only problem we had was that our Kendra doesn't stand up very well so she REALLY wasn't standing up with the roller skates on.

As for the fit on an American Girl doll, we did run into one problem.  Unfortunately, I could not fit this jacket over both of her arms.  It was a struggle just to get it through one!

The romper and skates do look really adorable on Greta, I must say.  It does sort of have that skimpy 70s style to it, though.  This could also pass as a cute bathing suit if you were concerned about modesty and wanted to give this to a child.

I feel like this is how I want my hair cut the next time I go to the hairdresser..maybe I should bring this photo in to show the her??  Lol.

The skates fit nicely onto American Girl feet, but as you can see are a tad bit snug. 

We all know I just had to try it on Julie...our resident disco expert. ;)

The laces are so short so this is the best I could do! (I could've probably tried harder, though.) 

And here's a goofy little video review we made of the outfit. :)
We filmed this in the Fall of about not keeping up, lol. 

Overall, we really enjoy this outfit and I think it is definitely worth it, especially if you can grab it when it's on sale.  I love so many outfits in the Retro line of clothes from Our Generation and hope to get more to add to our collection!

I hope you're all enjoying this wonderful holiday season!
