For those who have followed my Blessings Blog from last year, you'll be familiar with my story about the Holiday Barbie. Every year, Sierra gets the new edition for Christmas. It's a HUGE part of our holiday tradition with so many memories associated with the acquisition. On our way to Oregon this morning, we stopped at a Target to get some goodies and as we walked past the toy section, I noticed the Barbie dolls and decided to check. August 13th is a bit early, but I took a chance and there she was.
This one will have unique memories attached to it since it was purchased on our way to Oregon to move Steel into his dorm. I wish now I had written down all of the stories about the Barbies each year. I think they mean more to me than they do to Sierra.
