Saturday Afternoon....

In the midst of laundry, cleaning the house, and cooking dinner.....this is what my girl was doing. Playing with her doll....changing her outfit....getting ready to go downtown tomorrow to American Girl. I grabbed my camera and started shooting. It's times like this I wish I had her hair done a bit nicer. But it was a lazy Saturday afternoon...hence her sweatsuit.
She decided she wanted her dolly's cheerleading uniform on. 
She struggled with the outfit....but stuck with it....
.....and eventually ripped the Velcro!


This is her "baby" Gloria all ready for tomorrow....in her cheerleading uniform. ; )
Have a wonderful weekend!

Ahhhh so sweet. Have fun tomorrow. I have been to the one in Colorado but I know it's nothing like the one in Chicago. Love the cheerleading outfit.

Your daughter is beautiful. She seems a strong and caring young woman; you must be so proud.

Those are the moments that last forever. That is a very sweet and tender moment, thank you for sharing it with all of us. My daughter is now 16 and every once in awhile pulls out her bitty baby and dresses her.

What gorgeous pictures! I love AG dolls and always wished I had one of their babies! Looks like Courtney's diligence paid off in getting her baby changed...way to go!

These pictures are precious, Michele. I appreciate how these moments must make you feel. The little things like this you thought you might never see just fill your heart, don't they? So glad you shared them with us...and so glad they are "natural". What is better than a sweatsuit and un-fussy hair?! umm...nuthin'!
