Lemon Meringue

Christmas morning Lily opened her gifts at my parents house.
This gift caught me by surprise.

The video kind of explains it, but I got a Lemon Meringue doll for my 3rd birthday. I loved the doll & had kept her. When our family moved to MN, prior to the sophomore year of high school, we had a HUGE yard sale. Unbeknownst to me, my mom sold my Lemon Meringue doll. I was upset; she was the one thing I had wanted to keep from my childhood.
This year for Christmas, my Dad & Mom found a Lemon Meringue doll on ebay & got it for Lily (or is it for me?) for Christmas.

Here is a picture of me at the 3rd birthday party & my new doll.


That is SO special! Wow. what a wonderful gift for you, uh, Lily. :) I had a similar experience this summer. When we went to my grandparents house I found a box that my grandma had saved and carefully packed away. In it was my very favorite doll I had played with all my life. It belonged to my mom when she was young and I was so happy to find it. I didn't know what had happened to it! "Betsy" is now happily at home with my daughters although she looks SCARY now. I still love her! :) So happy Lily has a Lemon Meringue now too.
