She's our "American Girl"....well...sorta...

So....ALL Jenna really wanted for her birthday was an "American Girl" doll. Luckily for us (since the real dolls are way too expensive for a girl her age) she has no idea about the difference between a REAL American Girl and the generic version you can buy at Target.

Now...not only did she really really R-E-A-L-L-Y want an American Girl for her birthday but, for some reason, she wanted her Auntie Elaine, (soon to be Uncle) Ty, and (soon to be cousins) Gabby and Ana to get it for her. Luckily for everyone...they obliged.

The name on the dolls box was Sadie. However....she now goes by either "Kailyn", "Bella" or simply "American Girl". I'm so glad I took these pictures to remember what "American Girl" looked like when she arrived because Lord knows she doesn't look like this anymore. The poor doll has had her clothes changed repeatedly and had her hair "did" so many times that I'm surprised it hasn't fallen out yet.

No question about it....she L-O-V-E-S this baby to pieces.

Thank you Thank you THANK YOU to Auntie Elaine, Uncle Ty and Gabby and Ana!! You guys are the best!
