The one in which elmo acquires some siblings...

On Thursday, Ryleigh and I went to American Girl in NYC with my Aunt (Grandma Sue) and Cousin for a girls day out...it was Ryleigh's first time on a train...but not her first time in the city... she loved the train... Ryleigh was so excited to go to American Girl (as was I!!!)... and she (and I) loved every minute of it...it was such a fun day... Thank you Grandma Sue!!!! :)

Ryleigh with her cousin Kayleigh outside American Girl...
Ryleigh deciding which twins to adopt...there were lots to choose from!!! She decided on a blond boy and a dark haired girl... She named them...wait for it....Twin...and Twin...(as they are bitty twins)...no worries...they know which one she is calling and talking about....even if you don't....
Ryleigh got to take one of the dolls right out of the box to carry throughout the store...
Ryleigh switched out the Twins while waiting for lunch...Apparently the boy Twin was tired and needed a nappy...
Grandma Sue took us all to lunch...Ryleigh was so excited that Twin got to join us...and they even served her tea...Twin...not Ryleigh...
Ryleigh...so happy to have her twins home...they are ready for bed...
Daddy...babysitting the twins before bedtime...they changed outfits many times before falling asleep....

* No worries....Elmo has met and accepted the twins... and remains an integral part of the bedtime routine...

This is so sweet. We have an American Girl store here in Madison, WI. My niece has one and loves her. I'm glad Elmo's taking it well.
