Ellie wants an American Girl doll for Christmas this year. The way she describes it is that it's a doll with an American flag dress. The skirt is red and white stripes and the top is blue with stars.
Little does she know what an American Girl doll really is and little does she know just how close she came to getting one. Mommy originally bought the girls each an American Girl doll but it didn't take long for the buyer's remorse ($110 each) to set in. In the end, the dolls were returned and cheaper versions were bought.
As luck would have it... Ellie's cheaper doll came with a dress that has a red and white stripe top and a blue shirt. Score!
