Do you mind if we join you today when you open the door for the 12th please Amber? Charlotte and Victoria ask.
Of course not. Replies Amber. It is all part of the fun.
I wonder what will be in there today? Amber comments.
We're hoping it will be something to go in our little basket that was yesterday's gift. Victoria tells Amber.
Oh I hope so, wouldn't that be great? Amber says to the girls.
Now where is door number 12? She murmurs. Ah, here it is!
Amber opens the door.
Oh look, perfect! She exclaims. Just what is needed.
She holds the bag up. Vegetables!
Oh wonderful, says both Charlotte and Victoria together. Vegetables are just perfect.
We have a parsnip and a carrot. Amber shows them.
I think we are going to need a bit more than this, but they will do for starters.
She reaches over....
...and puts the parsnip in the basket.
There you go, one parsnip....
...and one carrot. Amber says as she reaches over to put the carrot in the basket as well.
Now where shall we put it? Victoria asks.
Just down there. Amber suggests.
The girls put it down in a similar spot to yesterday.
Looks like the little grey mouse might have spied it already and is surreptitiously making his way to have a little nibble.
The girls watch on while Amber poses for her Christmas photo.
Beautiful Amber, my large head, pony tail, no seam torso early 60s Gotz girl with the gorgeous yellow eyes. The third of the three dolls that my husband bought when we went to Shelly's in May 2011. My younger son named her and I think it is a great name for her. She really is a pretty girl (in my eyes anyway) I love the way she just looks at you so intently sometimes as if she is trying to send a message.
Two very similar close ups...just because I felt like it!
