I really wanted to get the Girl of the Year, Grace. It took the money I had saved from Christmas gifts, my birthday money and lots of work around the house but last week I finally met my savings goal. I made a deal with my parents, they agreed that I saved enough to buy the doll I wanted they would cover the shipping cost.
Today when my parents picked me up from school they said that the package from American Girl had arrived. As soon as I got inside I ran to my room and found Grace sitting by my bed.
Waiting for the package to arrive has been really hard, and I was excited to free Grace from her box but I knew that I had to do one thing first. I called my friend Cordelia and asked her to bring her doll Sienna and come over to my house as soon as she could.
It didn’t take long for Cordelia to arrive. With Sienna under her arm we ran into my room so I could show her Grace.
With great anticipation, we both sat down on the floor for the unboxing.
Cordelia held Sienna up so she could get a good look at her newest friend. Not wanting to be left out of the action my cat Cricket came to watch as well.
We held the dolls up so they could shake hands and officially meet.
I am excited to have a new doll and being able to experience it with a friend makes it even better.
