My mom, my daughter, and I went to an American Girl Doll fashion show this weekend. We had so much fun.
Girls, doll, fashion, and Grandmas! That’s what’s better.
The room was so pretty, so much nicer than my pictures show. I apologize for all the blurry, grainy pictures. I know everyone apologizes for lousy photos, but I have been trying to take better pictures lately. Unfortunately, my camera is dying a slow, painful death and I will use it until the very end.
Each table was decorated with a harvest type of centerpiece and a big bouquet of balloons. Because Upstate New York Cerebral Palsy uses therapeutic riding lessons to help children, the horse theme was prominent.
Tables had pumpkins and children’s riding hats, along with old black and white photographs of horses. My daughter, the horse lover, could not have been happier.
I love her clothes and adore her bike. I had a similar bicycle when I was a child, but my daughter loves her bed. Can’t say I blame her.
A few years ago, the Bitty Twins also came to live in our house. They sleep right through the night and never spit-up. I can handle a few more sets of those kinds of twins.
Do you know that women stopped wearing corsets in America during the war?
They were able to make two battleships from the steal in women’s corsets.
I suppose good can sometimes come from war, because I would never have made it through life in a corset. I cannot even wear skinny jeans or spanx. I certainly can’t imagine lacing myself into a straight jacket every morning.
I think this will have to become a yearly tradition, at least for a few more years.
I think she managed to pull off fancy.
We had the best time.
Thank you American Girl Doll and Upstate New York’s Cerebral Palsy Association.
