Come Meet Kohanna

My favorite doll related Christmas gift this year was from my best friend! We have a habit of giving each other dolls and doll related items and this year was no different.  Among my gifts there was a tall, skinny package and when I pulled off the paper I saw:

This pretty blue box!

Samantha's Cranberry Party Dress

I realized today that when I said I was going to do these reviews I said there might be 4 because I didn't want to do anything on Christmas day but that was on the 20th......soooo apparently I can't count. There will be 5 after all!

Today we are talking about Samantha's Cranberry Party Dress. It didn't register with me till just now but this is Samantha's first feature on the blog! It's a great dress for her premier post and here it is:

Josefina's Christmas Dress and Mantilla

Just a few more days till Christmas and I'm going strong on these reviews! I'm a little proud of myself. Today I want to talk about Josefina's Christmas Dress and Mantilla set. I don't know why but AG's website they have her in her fiesta dress for the holidays. This is her official Christmas outfit though and she looks stunning in it:

Molly's Christmas Dress

Today was a particularly dim and gloomy day here at my house. I'm not complaining because I love storms, but it did rain all day and that made taking good pictures for today's holiday outfit very difficult! But we persevered, used artificial light and (with help from my very nice husband) we got enough pictures.

Molly's Christmas dress is probably my favorite outfit in her collection. I remember thinking it was very pretty when I was a kid and I always wanted it even though I didn't have her. I thought the velvet looked soft in the pictures and I love that dark shade of green. I bought this dress in St. Louis a few months back and here is it on my Molly:

Addy's Christmas Dress

I really thought about doing a 12 days of Christmas thing but I really don't have 12 days of Christmas/doll related things to talk about. This month and especially this week have been super frustrating. Unfortunately, I really haven't been motivated at all but I did take pictures of Addy in her dress for a review this week and I think that I'm going to do a 5 days of Christmas thing! Or maybe 4. I'm not sure if I'll want to do something on Christmas Day or not. We'll just see how this goes!

Moving on now.

Addy's Christmas dress is tied for my favorite AG holiday outfit of all time. I think it is by far the most visually interesting because there are just so many fabrics and colors and textures! Here it is:

So much going on! I love it!

Cozy Sweater Outfit

When I bought Lilly and Jade after Christmas last year they came in some not very nice outfits. Neither had shoes, both outfits were either torn or stained and both were smelly. Luckily at the time I lived in a city with an American Girl store so after they arrived I went and bought them each one outfit. Jade got the Cozy Sweater Outfit. It looks like this:
It comes with a pink sweater, grey leggings, dark pink knit boots and a headband.

Baby Crissy

I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving! I got to spend mine with my mom and since I'm not going to be able to visit for Christmas I brought all her gifts with me. She was going to wait until Christmas to open them but that didn't happen and so I get to share with you the big thing that I got her!

Last year my mom mentioned sometime before Christmas that she would love it if I got and restored a Velvet or a Baby Crissy for her. I didn't! Instead I got her a Ms. Beasley doll. (Someday I'll have to tell you the story of my mom's Ms. Beasley but not today!) This year I decided that I would look for one of the dolls she had mentioned. So I went on e-bay and found a Baby Crissy I thought I could pretty easily fix and within a few days she arrived! If you don't know much about Baby Crissy you can read about her here.

I didn't have much time to fix her up so I got to work right away! Here she is almost fresh out of the box:
I have to say I was shocked when I opened her box! Baby Crissy is HUGE! I guess I wasn't paying attention when I read that she is 24 inches? I was expecting like a cabbage patch doll size not actual baby size.
