This year we celebrated Avery's 7th birthday at the American Girl Store. We let her choose a doll for her birthday present and we invited Nina and a few cousins to join us for lunch. Avery has been studying the American Girl catalog for months trying to decide which doll she wanted!
After months of deliberation, Avery decided on getting Julie, a hippie doll born in the 70's! Both she and her doll got to wear Happy Birthday stickers while shopping and dining. As gifts from Nina, Gammy, and Addison, Avery also picked out a bed, pajamas, and a "feel better" kit for Julie.
Joining us for lunch at the American Girl doll Bistro - were Aunt Ann, Cousins Brieanna, Addison, and Brooke. (plus Nina who was busy occupying Carsyn!)
Singing Happy Birthday!
Avery loves her big cousins so I am so thankful they took time to come indulge our 7 year old!
feeling fancy - shirley temples, cake, and ice-cream with a flower!
although she is all smiles here, this little one was a fuss-pot the entire time. she no longer is happy being confined!
