"Better to write for yourself and have no public, than to write for the public and have no self."

A couple years ago my parents gave me a set of Christmas matryoshka dolls for my birthday.  We all like seeing them when we decorate for December, 
but BabyCakes looooves the "Christmas eggs," as she calls them.

This year I decided to buy her a set that she can have out and play with all year long. (The paint on the Christmas ones seems a bit fragile so she doesn't get to just play with them a lot.)

Turns out those suckers aren't cheap.

Unless you inadvertently order them from China (on Amazon).

And then it takes 6 freakin weeks to get them.

So, "Merry Christmas!  Happy New Year! Here you go, BabyCakes. It's a Wednesday -- have fun."

There are 10 in total and red/pink in color... and they are precious.  I knew the giant set would thrill her because she's never seen a set with more than 5 dolls in total, and that's kind of the point of them when you're a kid -- taking them apart and then nesting them again... over and over and over.

The tiniest one, complete with a painted face and all, was her favorite.

It fits inside the smallest doll to still open, named "Alice" by BabyCakes.

This morning she named all the girls and I wrote their names inside.
Welcome to the Davis family, 



Gracie (the baby, of course!)

You were always fascinated by them. The ones you got are very cute, just like Katie. Love to all!
