About Me

My photo
Mysteries, polka dots, California Rolls, TJ Maxx, cozy blankets, rainy days and getting the first spoonful of peanut butter out of the jar make me smile. Spiders, rude people, cold fingers and toes, baby leashes, people that don't wrap their packages before going to the Post Office, poison ivy and Math (pretty much all of it) make me want to scream. My perfect day would be spent with my wonderful husband and sweet girls- watching movies in our jammies! Of course, having the movie theater to ourselves would be great, too. Please pass the popcorn and M&M's.:) I am saved by the grace of God. He is my constant companion and hears my every prayer. What a blessing! I'd love to hear from you!

American Girl Class

My precious American Girls.

We studied Felicity this month so, of course, we enjoyed a
tea party!

Each girl was assigned a task- offering tea, a cookie,
sugar, etc.

Then, we played old fashioned games such as Hide the
Ring and Ring Around the Rosie!

The girls did an amazing job creating their fashionable hats.
Ladies in the colonies did not tan. Tan skin meant that you had
worked in the fields.

American Girls and an American Pug!

The girls were so well behaved and a true pleasure to teach.

Plus, they were happy to model for me. A bonus!

Sophia was born in Africa so she is a "newer" American Girl.:)

Katie and Sara became fast friends. They were born one day
apart!

Look at Emma's sweet smile!

Frosting cookies for our tea party.

We are going to share many adventures together. Love these
girls already.

What a blessing we will be to each other...

Next month: Molly!

Hi Lori
I enjoyed your pictures of the American Girl class this week. Everyone looks to be having so much fun especially with the tea party and decorating the cookies. The hats are gorgeous and they all make great models. Can't wait to see what fun things you do for 'Molly'.
