American Girl Doll Hair Do’s

american girl doll, how to fix your doll's hair, doll hair, hair styles

Last night #3 held her first class at the library. It was a "how to style your doll's hair class". I'm super proud of her. She arranged for the class to be held, got all the stuff together, and planned the 8 hair styles she taught the girls to do.

The library advertised for her…

She borrowed a few American Girl Dolls from her friends to have examples of the hair

styles she was going to teach.

Here she is setting up for the class.

The girls at the start of the class.

#3 is showing her how to perfect the ballet bun

She did a great job making sure all the girls knew how to make each hair style.

How cute are these girls?

American Girl Fashion Show.. comes to Overland Park, Kansas

I went with #3 to the American Girl Fashion Show put on by the Junior League.

#3 is in the middle.. she went with her 3 friends.

#3 and her doll in their matching outfits.

Here she’s feeding some lunch meat to her doll. Notice her doll is in

it’s own super cool chair.

During the intermission of the show we checked out the dolls they had up

for a raffle. This is the new doll her name is Rebecca Rubin. I think she’s from

1914 or somewhere close to that..

A just like you doll with all the hair accessories.

Here’s #5 with her favorite doll up for raffle.

Here’s a better look at the doll seat. Pretty nifty huh? Wish I had one of those

when I was a kid.

Here are the girls 3 dolls. Looking FABULOUS!

We went shopping and hung out at Starbucks after the Fashion Show.

Who knew a Fashion Show would wear them out?

It’s Parent’s Day at Dance


Parent's Day at Dance…


Child #3 is my kid.. (the only one with brown eyes) and is really my #3 This is her Tap Costume

The sound of that makes me groan. It's not because I don't like seeing my kids in their dance costumes or watching them shake their booties.. It's more because I get to sit in a crowd of parents where I'm 8-10 years older than most of the parents.. that are there.  This freaks me out.  Now you should know MOST of the people that kid #3 is in class with are my age.. some are younger. But in #4's class that is a completely different story.  I'm like a grandma in that class!


So the only boy in this picture is my #4.  He's 6, and LOVES his dance class.  He doesn't care about the girls.. he just likes to dance

I'm really not old enough to be a Grandma.  But as I sat there in that dance room it hit me.. I'm old. I need to exercise.. I need to do something so I don't look so dang old.  Besides radical surgery do you have any suggestions?

So enough about me.. let's talk about those kids..

#4 he's cute huh?  I should tell you he does not have on his entire costume.  Only part of it came in.  He is missing his pink and white polka dot tie, and black pants.  He'll look pretty sharp huh?  He has two classes, ballet and tap.  He's always gone with me when I took #3 to her dance classes, and he wanted to do it.  So I finally enrolled him.  I thought he would give up after a couple of weeks, but he really loves going.


Here's Miss #3. in her ballet outfit..

Here's #3 and #5.. She's in her Jazz outfit and "pose".. #5 Refused to be in dance.. he quit after his 2nd week.
