My Barbie dolls have resided safely in a box at my Mom's house for many years now! We always knew I'd be saving them for my daughters one day! Since Gracie is now beginning to collect and play with Barbies, I asked Mom to send them our way the other day! But until we opened the box tonight with Aunt Vanessa, I had forgotten just how old and special of a treasure we've had in my family!
Gracie is so excited as you'll see in these pictures. She's still not quite old enough to entrust priceless family belongings to, but for now, we'll pull them out and enjoy from time to time together! Tonight we've put together a little fashion show to share with you just how neat these treasures really are! To know some of these have gone through the hands of and been loved by, five generations of us girls! So sweet!
|Piles of Barbie Dolls! You can't tell I have one super happy little girl can you???|
|Gracie holding Barbie's adorned in clothing made by Great Grandma Betty! And may I add that Gracie's middle name Elizabeth comes from this same Grandma Betty that we love and miss so very much! I can't wait for her to see these pictures!|
|Look at the detail on this dress! I love knowing that this same dress was made with love, patience, and care many years ago for the little girl Grandma treasures and loves so very much!|
