Very special Christmas Presents!!!

As you all know Steve and I love to shop Garage sales, Estate Sales and Thrift stores.  Well I am glad I  went just before Christmas.  We went to an Estate sale and it was the 3rd weekend of this sale, so I thought that there wouldn't be much left.  Well I was wrong. When I walked into the front room the table right in front of the door was piled up with all these life like baby dolls, 25 or 30.  I started looking at them and saw the prices $15.00, $25.00, $30.00, well these were kind of out of my league but then I heard someone say everything was half off.  I went to Steve and asked if I could get some for our Granddaughters.  I know they would love to have one.  Steve came and looked and said ya pick out the ones you want.  So I did.  When we paid, one of the Ladies running the sale said did you find the boxes for the dolls?  I didn't know they had boxes.  So she went over and pulled boxes out from under the tables.  The boxes said Lee Middleton,  I knew then that I had found quite a treasure.  Both dolls had boxes and certificates and their original clothing.  The babies are signed and numbered.  Then I found the JC Penny price tag on the end of the box $170.00.  Both were little Boys.  I had no Idea that they were that expensive, but we gave them to the girls anyway.  (Now I am kicking myself because I didn't buy more.)
 Mary named her baby Gabriel

Miss Hailey named her baby Charlie
  I found lots of baby clothes so they can change their clothes including coats and shoes.
Dawn and I are working on making carriers, bassinets and bibs from a pattern my Sister gave me 25 years ago.  Thanks Aunt Carolyn, I knew it would come in handy again sometime.

The girls are so good with them, they even get their brothers to babysit while they go do something else.  I love it.  

Happy Scrappin',
