Dolly A-Z: Rachel

This is Rachel.  She’s named after my sister.  We made her at Build-a-Bear about 8 years ago.  The line was called Friends 2B Made, and we never saw them at Build-a-Bears here on the west coast; we built them in Ohio.  There’s also a Marjorie dolly, but she lives at my sister’s house.

Dolly A-Z: Nicki

Nicki, Girl of the Year 2007, is my 9th American Girl.  I wasn’t planning on adding her to my collection until I saw her in person at the American Girl Place in Chicago.  She’s so cute!  I love her freckles and her hair color.  (Hey, that’s the same thing I said about Nellie!).  I decided my Nicki doll should wear glasses.

In the Molly celebration going on at my house, Nicki is ready for Camp Gowanagin:

Dolly A-Z: Nellie

I bought Nellie on ebay this year, making her my 29th American Girl doll.  I really really like her.  She’s the only girl with her face shape and freckles.  She’s the only girl with her strawberry blond hair color.  Here are photos from the day she arrived:
