Chrissy Doll - A Xmas Memory

Posted by Picasa

I was sorting through old folders and I came across a letter to Santa, written when Christine was about 6 years old. She had cut out a picture of Chrissy Doll from a catalog, taped it to her letter and wrote CHRISSY with her black crayon. My printing at the bottom says SANTA, PLEASE BRING THIS DOLL. Then she printed her name.
I remember I had already bought Baby Tender Love - a baby doll that feels like a real baby! Well, Christine had visited Santa in the store and told him she wanted a doll for Christmas and since she had told Santa her name was Christine he told her that she must want Chrissy Doll whose hair grew when you pulled it. Well, suprise, suprise, Santa brought two dolls that year.

That's too funny! I can't believe you kept that! Until recently we had both of those dolls here. I think Chrissy finally went out - her hair no longer worked and she was looking quite the bit worse for age. Baby Tender Love is in the attic - she's lost an arm - but is too precious to dispose of quite yet.
