American Girl Doll Store

We took a quick trip down to KC this weekend to visit my sister and her husband.  It was a lot of fun.  And of course I got to go shopping in The Scrappy Gourmet store!  I love just walking around all the stuff.

We had a few things we wanted to do while we were down there.  My husband works for Hy-Vee, and they had built a new store and he wanted to stop and see it.  It was VERY big!  We also took Hope down to the American Girl store.  It was a lot of fun.  She has been have a great few weeks, so I bought her a new doll.  Luckily, Dee hadn't gotten her anything for her birthday, so she bought her some things too.  And Grandma got caught up in all the fun too and picked her up an outfit for her doll (and got some ideas for some new outfits to make for the dolls).

Hope dressed her doll in the Snow White princess dresses that Grandma D made for her at Christmas.  Everyone there was asking where we got that dress for her doll.



As you can see, her doll's hair had seen better days, so we took her to the salon.  They brushed her hair and put braids in.  It was amazing how good she looked, and the magic solution is water and the wire brush made for doll hair.  WOW!




The store was a lot of fun just looking around at everything.  

Here is her new doll-Kanani.


Here is Kanani in her other outfit ready to show Snow White how to do the hula.



The night we arrived in KC, Hope wanted to get her cousin Lauren's American Girl dolls and accessories out to play with.  Lauren was even home visiting (and like all typical college kids, brought multiple bags of laundry), so Hope asked her to play dolls with her.  They had a tea party.


I brought home lots of great scrapbooking supplies, so I can't wait to start creating some projects with it.  FUN stuff!

Have a good night!
