Today after school I surprised the children with a field trip. I took them to the American Girl Doll store. I like field trips that involve shopping.
We needed to pick up Chrissa. I love Chrissa. She's the Girl of the Year and her story is all about bullying and how to handle being bullied. She'll be raffled off on Saturday at the Peirce School Spring Fair.
We got there right after school and the store was empty.
I told Rebecca and Lily that they could each chose something to get for themselves. Rebecca chose to get the mini Rebecca Rubin doll. Rebecca Rubin is the new historical doll. She is Jewish American and her story takes place in 1914.
Then Rebecca used her own money to buy this outfit.
Here she is with her loot.
Lily had other plans. She really wanted to get her doll's hair done. If you are not familiar with the American Girl phenomenon I can understand how crazy it sounds. Doll hairstyles. Insane.
It is crazy. But it's my kind of crazy, so I shelled out $20 so that Lily's doll could get a fancy hair-do.
The women who have this job are very sweet and friendly. They chatted with us about dolls and hairstyles.
Here's Lily's doll before her hairstyle.
Let's be honest. She's having a bad doll hair day.
Here she is getting her hair styled. Ooooh! Look! Better already!
Here's the finished hairdo. So lovely, isn't she?
At the store I spied this cute puppy.
