Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!!!

Happy New Year, everyone!!!

Do you have any goals for 2012? My resolutions are to keep my room clean and to blog more!

I've been so busy over this Christmas break that I haven't had time to tell you about my Christmas! I got lots of great presents, I can't believe how lucky I am!

Christmas morning I ran down the stairs as fast as I could. I have a hard time sleeping in, but my mom makes me stay in bed until 8 AM.

There was a huge pile of presents for me under the tree!

I love wrapped presents. It's such a wonderful feeling when you're about to be surprised!!!!

Check out this cool book! Lots of great ideas for slumber parties. My mom says that this year I can finally start to have sleepovers!

I also got this fun game, it will be great for late night partying!

Next up were new roller blades!!! I'm so excited to go out and try them. Aren't they so cute?

My friend Inky sent over some presents from New York. I knew about one of them, but then my mom surprised me another package from Inky. It came a few weeks ago and she decided to hide it and save it for Christmas.

Look at these comfy moccasins. Inky always knows exactly what I'll like.

Oh wow!!!

These hedgehog babies match the hedgehog family I have in my room!!! Soooo cool, thank you Inky!!

Then there was only one present left..

Wait...! It can't be, can it??

This is Cécile's holiday dress! I told my mom I wanted Cécile for Christmas, but she said that I already have 2 American Girl dolls and that Santa probably couldn't bring me a third.

But then I spied a big box behind the tree, I hadn't noticed it before.

Looks about the right size..I am sooo excited.

Holy cow! IT IS!!

Isn't she beautiful?

I can't believe I got so many cool presents! I am so lucky.

Then I had to go get dressed for our big family Christmas dinner. I got Cécile dressed, too. :-)

Merry Christmas!!!

and...Happy New Year, again!!

Here is a behind the scenes picture from my New Years shoot, I wanted you to see my cool sparkly butterfly clip!

Can't wait to see what 2012 is like!


  1. Happy New Year, Piper! You got some lovely gifts! Mine will be on its way to you soon.

  2. Happy New YEAR, Piper! You got some great gifts!

  3. Piper!

    Happy New Year! I love your special New Year hairstyle, and that butterfly clip is too pretty.

    You received some wonderful presents. I love the moccasins Inky sent you, and how cute are those Calico Critters?! I thought of you when I saw them in a local toy store, but I wasn't allowed to buy any. I'm glad you got your much-longed-for Cécile! I didn't ask for a doll this year, but I think I may ask for Cécile someday. I love her.


  4. Wow! You got so many cool gifts! I love the skirt you're wearing in the "2012" picture! It's sooooo pretty! Where did you get it?


  5. Thanks, everyone!!

    Sophie - you should get Cécile! She is beautiful.

    Miranda - That skirt is from AG's 2005 Birthday Girl outfit.

  6. Happy new year Piper! That sounds like an awesome Christmas! :) I celebrate Hanukkah and I got a lot of great presents!That's so cool that you got Cecile! My mom Lily wants to know from your mom where you got the famous footwear box and Cecile's holiday dress!
    Talk Soon!

  7. How fun! We had a great Christmas, too, and got the Apples to Apples game. We played it on New Years Eve at our slumber party, but still fell asleep before midnight. Happy New Year!

  8. I just finished reading the Marie-Grace and Cecile meet books and I so want Cecile, you are lucky to have her.

  9. Piper, what lovely pictures! :) Thanks for sharing your Christmas with us.

    I love your hedgehog babies, and I'm so glad you got a Cecile! Anniversary Cecile was on my wishlist, but Mama didn't get a chance to buy her before she sold out, and she didn't feel like paying twice as much for her on eBay. :( Oh well, I still got some great gifts myself. Maybe someday a Cecile will come my way. ;)

    Have a Happy New Year!


  10. Your Christmas looked absolutely lovely! I ACTUALLY slept in this year! I didn't wake up until 9 o'clock. NINE O'CLOCK!!

    I loved New Years Eve! Watching the ball drop is one of my favorite traditions. It just makes it feel...official. Final. Know what I mean?

    My resolutions are to do better in school, A's & B's only from now on! Also, to perfect my photography and possibly get a new camera? I'm still dying for that Nikon D3100...and, can we throw "take a photography class" in with that? Hahaha.

    Have a wonderful 2012, Piper!
