Fun Fact: The Nelson Knitting Co. of Rockford, Ill., is not entirely responsible for the making of sock monkeys, but they were one of the first companies to start putting patterns or directions for making the sock monkey on their boxes of socks. It was a great example of waste not, want not for you got socks, and when they were worn out you got a toy!

Hello everybody! Gee, it's been a long time since I've posted. Well.... I have some really important news! I am going to the american girl store in Seattle with Ms. B! Hooray! Ms. B's been working for hours on what she calls her combo list...it's this silly thing where she lists all these different combinations of different things she wants and the totals.... I'd say it's kind of wasteful but I do get to see what she's thinking of getting me. Abby, however, is using all of her willpower to make sure she gets some kind of board with wheels, silly modern people. Summer and I just want the Amelia Earhart doll and the cute light blue dress....what? That's not too much...*sigh* O.K., I guess it's quite a bit. Since i'm going on the trip I should be content. Oh! I almost forgot! Ms. B found a summer play outfit for me! (well, actually she just found these pink knickers to go with my shirt, but it's still amazing!) I hope everyone's having a great summer!
