Merry Christmas, Baby
Merry Christmas, everyone! I can't believe another Christmas has crept up on us. Today, I thought I would share with you the doll that got it all started for me. It is my Baby Chrissy. I got her for Christmas when I was 8 years old. I can remember everything about that Christmas. Baby Chrissy was advertised as a doll the size of a real baby. They weren't kidding. She is the size of about a 9 month old baby. I couldn't wait to get her. My mom collected a big bag of doll clothes for her, months before she arrived. I played with those doll clothes every day until she arrived. That was the best Christmas ever! This was also the Christmas where I could have sworn I heard Santa and his sleigh. I can still see me sitting there on the couch, looking out the window and hearing the bells. Oh, the imagination and innocence of being a kid. I only remember two of my childhood Christmases. When I was 8 and when I was 12. Christmas for me is all about creating memories that last a lifetime. Thanks, mom!
Here's Chrissy, 36 years later. This morning she got her hair washed and conditioned. I went to the baby clothes store in my basement and picked out this cute little dress for her.
I hope you all are enjoying your holiday with family and friends, and creating special memories. Thanks to each and everyone of you for being with me on this doll blogging journey. I'm looking forward to more creative endeavors with you next year!
P.S. Everyone from Morristown sends their love and well wishes.
