a short story

So during Thanksgiving break last year, some friends (Katelyn and Leslie) and I decided to make the 2.5-hour drive down to Colonial Williamsburg to learn a little bit about our nation's history live a childhood fantasy of visiting the home of an American Girl doll.  As it turns out, Colonial Williamsburg is supremely boring, but the trip was totally worth it because just as we stepped out of the car, we saw an eight-year-old girl not only carrying her American Girl doll, but dressed in an American Girl costume!  We may have stealthily (read:  slightly creepily) taken her picture.

Then I found this website (offering free American Girl dress patterns).  I totally know what Katelyn and Leslie are getting for their birthdays this year.  (And I may even try my hand at making a life-sized version as well.)
