For once, I am writing an entry that isn't about me, but it is about my friends. We entered Activity 2 of The Doll Wardrobe's ongoing photo contest. As the theme was "Holiday/Celebration," we opted to showcase a birthday - more specifically Maura's birthday, which took place on January 15.
Photo Number Forty-Four
"We decided to showcase a winter birthday celebration as we get awfully tired of American Girl only recognizing spring birthdays. For her 14th birthday on January 15, Maura decided on a small party in the local ice cream parlor. Her two closest friends sang 'Happy Birthday' as she pondered what exactly to wish for. "What about a new American Girl doll?" she thought, before realizing that that wish had already come true (see her new Ruthie doll in the bottom right corner?). "Oh, wait, I know what to wish for!" Maura thought excitedly. She made her wish and blew out her multi-colored candles one by one. What do you think she wished for? If I tell you, it might not come true! Anyway, a fun time was had by all three girls, and they are now anticipating the next birthday to celebrate."
