In the spirit of everybody doing Haul Posts, I thought that I'd do the same. Although the word haul always seemed to sound a bit odd for me when paired with Christmas so... I don't know. Recap is what I'm calling mine and that's that.
And as everybody else does, there's a quick disclaimer I must make.
In a sense, yes I am a bit spoiled.
I am spoiled by a wonderful grandmother who goes a tad overboard for Christmas.
That said, yes, I did receive quite a lot of AG clothes, but this is the one time of the year where I do. If there is anything I get during the year it's usually bought with my own money I've saved up.
Anyways. Let's get started. =)
Lovely Charlie was begging for pictures, so she donned a Santa hat and joined me.
She's wearing Isabelle's Coral Sweater which I received from my grandma. It's adorable. ^_^
My parents got me Addy's boots from the Cyber Monday Sale and I love them. Boots are literally all the girls wear. xD
I was so shocked and happy to open up the AG set w/ the gingerbread house. I'd been hoping for the thing as long as it had been out and I was so excited to finally have it. The santa hat is arguably one of the best things in it. xD
Enough of what Charlie's wearing though. Let's get to the other stuff. =)
I received the Jewel Highlights & Sparkly Pick from my grandmother. I'm really excited to use the highlights in a photo-shoot with MK. Colored hair is her kind of thing. ;)
I'm happy to have gotten another pair of glasses; Charlie was the only girl with them. These will go to Elizabeth at the moment. I'm still undecided who will permanently wear them.
I received a few of Isabelle's mix and match stuff, along with the Coral Sweater.
I'd wanted her tutu after seeing a post on The Doll Wardrobe about how to modernize Isabelle's collection... I'll edit in the link in a bit.
Isabelle's Scrunch Pants are something I like more than I thought I would. The dark purple is a seriously gorgeous color.
I'll admit, I dismissed a lot of Isabelle's collection originally, but the metallic dress is something I'm really happy I got. It looks gorgeous, although I don't really care for the purple tights. xD
Rebecca's Holiday Dress is so freaking gorgeous.
I can't stress that fact enough.
If you have the chance to get it; you must. It's just so pretty.And soft. ;)
The Trail Accessories are really fun. I'm not really a fan of the bright, eccentric colors, but I love the items themselves and think they'll be handy for Abditus Orbis. =)
The Coconut Cutie outfit was one I'd really ogled over & I just love it. <3
You know how everybody seems to have like enough pajamas for all their dolls, as well as swimsuits? They seem like such essential things, but gosh, I'm horrible at having enough for everybody. xD
The Petal & Plaid PJ's are adorable, and the pants are so satiny. ^_^
A lot of people dismissed this outfit because it was all white, but I myself love it. It's really cute, and great for pairing with other things.
I'm a person who's generally not a fan of purple/pink things, so I'm shocked at how much I like this. The top is adorable, & I love the fringed boots.
This dress is gorgeous and that's pretty much all I have to say. xD
My mom & I have a lot of fun playing silly little rounds of tennis at the local school courts, so I'm really excited to have a tennis outfit for the gals. =)
This is the one and only swimsuit I own, and I can't help but laugh at that fact. Guess the girls just aren't avid swimmers. ;)
I'm not really sure why I put this on my wishlist; none of the girls do ballet, but I'm still really excited to have it. The black & gold theme is seriously pretty to me, and I can think of a few photo-shoots the parts in this might be good for.
Julie's Coat. Is. SO. FREAKING. SOFT.
I've really got a thing for dark shades of purple at the moment because of Clara. She looks wonderful in purple and I can't help but admire the color a bit more now.
My parents managed to get me Rebecca's old accessories during the Cyber Monday Sale and I love this. The shawl is so pretty, and once again, I think it'll be great for photos. =)
The last thing is the I Love Pets Pajamas.
I think I finally have enough sets of pajamas for all my dolls.
But the really big gift this year was...
Oy, I was so shocked at this, among other things. My dad was kind enough to put it together for me the day of Christmas, and I am so happy to have a wonderful space to keep the dolls.
And that was pretty much everything I received for Christmas. There's a few other big, non-AG things, but I'll post about that stuff on The Halfling Writer. =)
And enjoy a few more pictures of Charlie.
Also, can I note that I felt incredibly stupid after taking all of these pictures? I'd totally forgotten that the sweater had finger holes and I spent like five minutes after I'd realized it trying to re-arrange the sleeves to fit Charlie's thumbs through the holes. >_<
Thanks for reading guys.
Let me know if you want an in-depth review on anything, or photos of a doll wearing a specific thing. I'd gladly take some. =)
