An American Doll Giveaway and my Daughter-Leanne

Leanne or" Samantha" and Josh her husband
I discovered a wonderfully fun blog called Mommy Katie.I would recommend her to anyone.Delightful giveaways and fun info.You can find her blog on my sidebar for now.She's right now having several giveaways but the one I'm interested in is the American Girl  giveaway.lucky girl who gets that one.I have been charmed by the American Girl Co.for 22 years now, as many of you have.It started with my youngest Daughter Leanne.She looked, and even had a disposition like Samantha the doll . That Christmas I went Samantha crazy as I could afford,although I don't think that's what her Daddy would have said -HeeHee-   I had an idea the other day to finish featuring each of my four daughters on four post.Today is "LeeLee's"day .Back a ways I featured Annette, one of my other daughters.At least I think I did.Leanne was and is the quiet one.The only conservative one.Most of you have at least one like her,the one you say..."I could have raised her with my eyes closed "one. I'm so thankful that the Lord gave me the easy one last because I was a little worn out by then.She was going to go to nursing school like her Mamma did,but that ended when she met her future husband who became a Doctor :)Leanne you are sweet ,calm and loving.. you've always been a joy and my baby.I love you. Happy Birthday Leanne Jeanette.

Hi, Thanks for dropping by my blog and leaving a comment. Oh one of those dolls would be so loved by my granddaughter. She has such an imagination and this week she has been talking with an English accent...so maybe an American Doll could set her straight, eh? ! Ha!

Hey Denise!
Well - they always say... If you can't be a nurse, just marry a doctor!
Big sparkly hugs,
Tobi and the Pixies!

One of my favourite songs that makes me realise God’s always around. — Dancing with God, Verse 1: You dance over me While I am unaware, You sing all around But I never hear the sound, Chorus: Lord, I’m amazed by You Lord, I’m amazed by You Lord, I’m amazed by You How You love me Verse 2: You paint the moring sky With miracles in mind, My hope will always stand, For You hold me in Your hand.
