{ Saying Good Bye is Hard to Do! }

Well, the day has come to say goodbye to our sweet friend, Isabelle!  Tomorrow she becomes the official American Girl® "Girl Of The Year" doll for 2014!!  We are super excited for her!

After saying goodbye to the girls in the upstairs bedroom, Isabelle popped down to the downstairs bedroom to say goodbye to the rest of us.  As soon as Isabelle walked in, Faith called out to Isabelle "Hey, did you see that you had a 'big reveal' on the Good Morning America show this morning?"  Faith could tell by the look on Isabelle's face that she didn't believe her so she added, "Yes, yes, you were! It was totally awesome!"


I spoke up....."It was really cool Isabelle.  You should have seen all the little girls' faces when they pulled the box up to reveal you standing there.  And, then what was really cool was this; there were four little girls that had come out dancing as a 'clue' right before you were revealed and after the reveal they gave each of those girls an Isabelle dressed to match each of their outfits!  The little girls were sooooo surprised!" 


 "Oh Saige, I wish I had seen it!  I'll have to watch it on YouTube tomorrow."


"Hey!" Faith spoke up, "I heard that you and the girls upstairs got to take selfies together! I want one with you too!"  Needless to say, Isabelle was totally up for more selfies!


I looked over at Lanie and saw a small tear trickle down her face. "Isabelle...why do you have to leave? Cant you stay???" Isabelle ran over to Lanie and gave her a hug. "I'm sorry, Lanie! I can't stay. There's a little girl out there that's depending on me to be there for her! Maybe I can come back and visit sometime?"  "Yes, you must." Lanie replied trying to hide her tears.


Then Isabelle called for a big group hug with all of us GOTY dolls. "I'm going to miss you guys so much!" Izzy exclaimed. "But don't worry - I will definitely come to visit all of you again!!"


Well, as of 12 o' clock midnight, I will no longer be the Girl Of The Year. Although it makes me a little sad, I'm happy my title will be passed down to such a sweet girl like Isabelle. We all wish she could stay, but we know she can't. Saying goodbye is a hard thing to do! We all wish Isabelle the best of luck as she takes on her new title. Happy New Years Eve everyone!!  ~Saige ♥

    2. Thanks for the feedback! We will most likely get her! Hey, why doesn't McKenna, Trey, Lanie, etc., etc., etc., ever respond to blog posts? Why is it usually only Saige, Cindy and Christina?

    3. Hey, Holly! That is so cool! You will love her!! And the reason why its only been us three for a while is that we are the author of these posts. Whoevers post it is gets to answer all the comments said on that post. Trey and Sarah have each written a post, and same with Cindy and Christina....and I was the author of most of the Isabelle ones. All the girls are eventually going to write posts....don't worry!

    2. Hi Jodee, First, I love your name! I thought I'd weigh in here since Daisy is my pup. She is the sweetest little puppy.....a bit mischievous at times but she is a puppy so she still has lots to learn. She's learning to fetch and I am potty training her to a pee-pee pad so that when the weather is terrible outside, she can go on the puppy pad. So far she hasn't had one accident....which I'm real happy about since I'm the one who'd have to clean it up - YUCK! ~Cindy ☺

    1. Hi Abbi, Isabelle said it can be a bit of a challenge. But if you put her hair in a pony tail, we think it would show up more. :) ~Saige ♥
