American Girl {spring break part III}

Yesterday, we spent a lovely afternoon at the Galleria. First stop......................... the American Girl store, of course!

Decked out in her "fancy necklace" and Hello Kitty lipgloss for the occasion...

Ever since our trip to Minnesota and the Mall of America this past September, Grace has been talking about the American Girl store. We really didn't spend time IN the store while at the MOA because I had a feeling Santa might be bringing her a doll and I didn't want any spoilers a few months ahead of his visit.

But this time, with Emily in hand, she couldn't have been more excited!
Hudson was excited too......excited to bringing his gator to a fancy girly tea party - HA!Of all the million things to look at in this pink heaven of a store for little girls, the little pumpkin's first stop was not the adorable mini cupcakes...No, not the cute dolls with their fancy dresses and adorable patio furniture...Nope. It was the SHOES!!!! HA!
Is she my daughter or what??! he he he
She was sooooo excited...it was the sweetest thing to watch.Poor little guy drowning in a sea of pink......I think his only respite was the Native American tepee display - he was mesmerized by it.We played pretend...Took the twins for a stroll...Played peek-a-boo with the Bitty Babies......and even posed with McKenna!Grace had been saving her money, and together with some generous birthday gifts from Papaw and Uncle Cecil & Aunt Jean, she was able to buy a pair of bright pink ballet flats, a cute aqua blue polka dot outfit and an adorable apron and market produce set for her beloved Emily.She was downright giddy!Off we went for lunch at the Bistro!But first we had to stop by the hair salon and watch a sweet lady working some magic on the little dolls...
{oh my, they even had "doll ear piercing"...whaaaat???!}
Grace with Emily by her side......and Hudson with Gator - HA!Even Noonie and I got in on the pics!I took a vacation day to squeeze in all this fun, but Lance had some work commitments and couldn't, so we sent him video messages every chance we got!When they brought Emily her very own cup & saucer, Grace was over the moon!And Hudson.........well, he was excited that they had
mac-n-cheese - HA!The tic-tac-toe pizza was super cute!And Gator, well he enjoyed the cantaloupe - that's for sure!Since Grace told one of the employees she was there to spend some of her birthday money, they asked about her birthday and then......... Cutest little ice cream cones and one super excited little girl!!She even shared with Emily...What a super fun day!! I think the little pumpkin will remember this day for a long, long time. I know I will!Up next...ice skating!
Have I mentioned that I've never ice skated before???!?

Oh my....how much cuteness! It looks like G had the time of her life! Such cute little details.

That MJ dress does run on the small side doesn't it! It is adorable though. Love the headwrap too....the green fabric is fun!

So, so sweet. What a wonderful treat. We just got an AG store in our area and we've been twice. So magical, my husband was even impressed! ;)

Teresa said...

Well this most certainly MUST be little girl heaven and I suspect Mummy and Grandma enjoyed it just as much!

What a little gentleman Hudson was too.

Just had an idea, wouldn't it be cute to host a tea party for Grace with her frieds and all their little dolls - you could make 'minature' versions of everything from the food to the party favors!

Teresa said...

sorry just noticed typing errors in my comment - that should have read 'friends' and 'miniature'.

Dear Grace: Seeing your excitement when we were at the AG store put a big smile on my face...and in my heart! You are an excellent shopper! I love all your choices, and so does Emily, especially her new pink shoes!!!

this is just precious. My 2 oldest are 16 and almost 14 but were big into American Girl. They have 5 dolls between them and would have loved to visit a place like this. I need to find the closest store to TN for them even at their age they would love it plus my Sarah that is 3. Loved seeing your fun day!

How sweet, I LOVE that Hudson had his gator. Looks like fun was had by all:)

Would it not be a blast too work in the salon for the dolls, and the occasional gator of course!!

Love the pictures! Looks like you guys are having a great vacation!

Sue said...

Oh, you are at my granddaughter's and my favorite place! I call it grandma and little girl heaven. We take our almost 7 year old there every summer for a back to school lunch and that's about all you find under our tree for her!
Making a memory for sure for Grace.
