I think it was the day after Christmas last year when Cate was flipping through an American Girl catalog and said, “Ohhhhhh..I really neeeeed one of these dollies!”. We thought this would be the perfect time to introduce the if-you-want-something-you-have-to-save-your-money-lesson lesson. 🙂 So, for 8 loooooong months, Cate has been saving every single cent. And last month, the day finally came…we ordered and received her real American Girl Doll! We were SO proud of her and, more importantly, she was so proud of herself!!
Ahhhh that look on her face is priceless! And need I mention her attire? Nah, you know us well enough by now. 🙂
She has named her “Cathryn” and loves her so. 🙂
