RIP SS Edmund Fitzgerald, November 10, 1975

Happy 234th Birthday, United States Marine Corps!

I found the Best Christmas Gift EVER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

THIS, my friends, is what I got my daughter for Christmas!

For those of you who have no idea what this is, it is a 1979 Vintage Dressy Bessy doll.

My cousin handed hers down to me when I was a kid and I'd be awake for HOURS in bed doing the zippers and buttons and everything else. *tear* I happened to think about this the other day when I was wondering what other things we could do/find for baby girl that would help improve her fine motor skills in a fun way, and voila! Dressy Bessy!

Yes, Preskool (stupid spelling, if you ask me) has modern versions of this, but this vintage one came up on ebay for $10! and I couldn't pass it up. It felt like I was giving my daughter a piece of my heart and I can't wait to give it to her next month.

*I can feel the tears forming now. :) *
