Mom's package got here today, and she was sweet enough to come over to my house so I could share the excitement of opening Ruthie's box! Also, as an added bonus, I decided to order the mini holiday Samantha doll for Tess since my mom was spending enough to get free shipping! :) So, an already great day got even more fun! :)
So here are some pics of the exciting event:
First view...another AG catalog.
Our first glimpse of Ruthie!!
The loot: Ruthie, a new hairbrush (my mom's old doll brush is completely falling apart!), and my mini Sam.
Ruthie out of the box. Such a beauty! :)
I've been curious for a while to compare Ruthie and Emma (my My AG #41) next to each other to see the differences. Since Ruthie was over for a visit, I figured I'd seize the opportunity and take a few pics of the girls together. :)
Please excuse the messy curls!! I didn't have much of a chance to work on Emma's hair before this photo shoot, and I was too paranoid to do anything with Ruthie's, as she was brand new! :}
Here's a pic showing the difference in their parts. Their parts are exactly opposite from one another.
In these pics, you can see the difference in hair color. Ruthie (on the left) has more of a reddish brown color, while Emma (on the right) has hair that is almost black. She does have faint reddish highlights, but they don't even seem to show up next to Ruthie.
More random pics:
I found it fascinating seeing these two side by side. While I LOVE my Emma doll, I have to admit that Ruthie is very stunning, too. I think they'd make great sisters! Ruthie will probably end up being Emma and Charlie's cousin that lives at my mom's house. :)
So, what do you think? Which one do you like better?
I also wanted to take a few close-up shots of my cute mini Samantha. She is so adorable! I would highly recommend her to those of you still debating whether to go for the holiday minis. ;)
Hope you enjoyed the pics! Did anyone else give in and buy something with the free shipping code?
