When I was young I had an American Girl doll named Molly. She had so many cute outfits that I would dress her up in and I loved reading all of her WW-II era stories. I knew that one day I would want Carina to have one of these dolls.
Over the last few years, the American Girl company has been discontinuing many of the historical dolls in favor of producing more of the modern dolls (that you can create to look like you and wear clothes like you). I think this is kind of a shame; part of the fun, in my opinion, was learning about a different period in history and how young girls lived then.
When I realized that they are discontinuing the Felicity and Elizabeth dolls from the Revolutionary War/Colonial era at the end of this year, I was really sad. These dolls have the most gorgeous dresses and interesting stories. I mentioned to M that they are being discontinued a couple weeks ago, and look what I got for Christmas:

They will probably just sit in their boxes for a few years, but once Carina is old enough, I think we'll have so much fun playing together!
So yeah, I got dolls for Christmas. What did you get? ;)
