The girls at my house got a new puppy!  Meet Cinnamon from Maplelea.

I watched Isabelle’s movie, and I liked it.  There was dancing.  There were dresses.  I loved Isabelle’s Nutcracker look, and I wish they would make that outfit for dolly Isabelle.

Here’s some Isabelle love:

Her new dress.  I love her in pink!


And here’s a handful of dolly dancers.  Thanks to my mommy, I got 3 mini Isabelles from McDonalds!
