{ Hanging Out with Isabelle ~ American Girl® GOTY 2014 } Part II

Starting where we left off;
I went to get the little parting gift we got for Isabelle and returned to the bedroom.  Harper, Hope and I gathered around to give it to her.  We love giving presents......it's much more fun to give than receive! 


Isabelle hopped up on the bed to open the box.....Harper could hardly contain her excitement!  She loves to give presents!  And, she was a bit anxious because she had suggested this particular gift.


"Go ahead Isabelle, open it, open it!  If you don't do it NOW, Harper is going to faint!" I exclaimed.


Isabelle carefully opened the box to reveal a super adorbs pair of reindeer socks!  She had admired a pair that I was wearing the other day so Harper felt sure that she'd love a pair for herself! 


"Yipeeeeee!  Oh, I absolutely LOVE these reindeer socks!!  I especially love his red nose!!" Isabelle squealed.  "Aren't these just like yours, Christina?"  "Yes, they are!  It was Harper's idea.....she remembered how much you liked mine the other day." 


"Oh, Harper.  I love these.....every time I wear them, I promise to think of you!"  Harper blushed a little but deep down she was proud of herself for being able to give her new friend something that she knew she'd love. ♥


Just then and without warning - Isabelle jumped up and exclaimed "Let's take some selfies!!!!  That way I'll always have photos of each of you and our fun times together!"  We all agreed it was a superb idea! 


I was first!  Yay, me and Isabelle together!!  Cool beans!!


Next up - Harper and Isabelle!  Don't tell Harper but it's a bit out of focus.....however, it's still very sweet and Harper thought the "soft focus" made her look "glamorous!"  She's so funny.  


Then it was Hope and Frolics' turn.....and it was in that moment that I saw my opportunity to totally photo bomb them!  Just as Hope was saying; "one.....two....three!"  I jumped up on the bed behind them and waved!!  Ohhhhh, I timed it perfectly!    


"Christina!!!" Harper yelled at me from the other side of the room, "You totally photo bombed Hope and Isabelle's selfie and that is not nice!"   It took me a minute to pull myself together and stop laughing so that I could say - "Sorry guys, I couldn't help myself.....it might not be nice but it sure is funny!!!!"  Let me see the photo! 


Isabelle spoke up to calm Harper down a bit.....and fortunately, she and Hope were giggling too!  "Oh, sweet Harper, don't be upset with Christina.  That's SO her to do those kinds of silly things!  She is such a goofy girl.  This photo will be a great reminder of just how much fun I have had here!" Isabelle said. "Now we need to go find the other girls... cause I need to say goodbye now.  You know I am leaving and I cannot wait to meet the little girl who will love me forever!!  I am super duper excited!"

  2. I like this story! It is really cute! So, I would like to ask how you got Isabelle and why are you giving her away? (You don't have to answer if it is private) And also, where did you get Frolics and Daisy?
    Thanks,
    Holly and McKenna, my dolls

    1. Hiya!
      Thanks so much for your kind words! Isabelle only came to visit for a little while before she goes to her forever home.
      We adopted Frolics at a beach shop down in North Carolina...he was adopted from the Ty Beanie Company. And Daisy, Cindy's dog, was adopted from the Pawparazzi Company! Cindy got her for Christmas a few years ago and loves her! ~Christina :D

  16. AWWW Goodbye Isabelle, I so wish I could get her, I live in England so it's pretty expensive to get AG's! But I am sure the girl who gets Isabelle will be so happy with her! She is a great doll. Thanks for all of the pictures they are really cute.

    1. Hello to you all - Ruby, Kit, Molly, Emily, Ivy, Harper, Saige, Brooklyn, Tamzin and Dakota!! Thank you for following our little blog! Yes, you are right, it would be quite pricey to have Isabelle shipping to you. But, boy, she'd have a blast with you....we'd tell her to get some yummy fish & chips from one of the local mum & dad chip shops and be sure to have some bangers and mash for dinner. ☺ Oh, and love, love, love Yorkshire Puddings with roast beef and Bisto gravy!! Oh, and Birds custard for dessert too! Ugh oh, now I am making the girls hungry!! ~Christina :D

  19. I love your stories! I know this is an older post, but I was wondering, where did you get Harper's jacket?

    1. Hello Mint! No problem at all! ALL of us girls LOVE that jacket! It's by AG and was from 2003 as part of their "Jacket and Skirt Outfit". It originally had a removable fur collar but we don't have that and we are okay with it cause we like it much better without it, lol. It's a really pretty golden color, almost metallic. One of the girls found it on eBay...good luck! ~Christina :D

    2. Thank you! Maybe I'll get lucky and find it or something similar! xD
