A huge big THANK YOU to the Holliday family, who sent Chloe a beautiful handmade doll all the way from Kuwait!
Even though Chloe is still very young, it is clear that she loves looking at the doll. And I can understand why - look at that sweet gentle face! We have not named the doll, and will wait for Chloe to get old enough to pick her name herself. This is her only doll, and will no doubt have a special place in her heart for many, many years.
She grabbed the doll like that on her own.
Also in the package was a beautiful handsewn doll dress, as well as a knit sweater and little shoes, for a bigger doll. These outfits fit perfectly on the older girls' dolls, and they have excitedly claimed them for themselves. Unfortunately, I have not yet had a chance to get pictures of the girls with their dolls, but will share them when I get to.
On a side note, this post reminds me of a favorite punny pastime of my husband: coming up with puns on the word "doll" when describing our daughters.
If she were a currency, she'd be the DOLLar.
If she were a First Lady, she'd be DOLLy Madison.
If she were a religious leader, she would be the DOLLy Lama.
He's come up with scores of these, this is just all I can remember right now. It's really sweet anytime he comes up with a new one. :)
Thank you for these beautiful gifts, and for brightening our day with such a sweet surprise!
