Say hello to 3 of my favorite little people- my adorable niece and my charming little nephews
For Christmas i wanted to make them something special. So i created a "mini-me" doll for each of them.
This was my first time making boy dolls...i have to say, their little red strip underpants are my favorite part. ;)
Light brown hair, silvery blue eyes and blue overalls for Elias.
Brown hair, brown eyes and green overalls for Gideon.
And a little blonde hair, blue eyed dollie for sweet Calliope. And a dress, of course, because Calliope is always a lady. ;)
Now, i had a hunch that the little kiddos would probably be fascinated by the novelty of the dolls for a bit but i was determined to "wow" them and i knew the way to their heart was through Angry Birds. Much to Sister's dismay, the 3 have grown quite attached to these new pop culture icons. :) It's really pretty funny.
It's hard to always know what is going to get kids excited...i know there have been several times we have planned activities or gifts that we thought our kids would love and instead they fell flat...other times we have been shocked at the excitement over the teeniest little things....anyway, its always a gamble.
However, after they had opened the dolls, they each opened their little package of mini angry birds and they were ECSTATIC. So excited and happy. i got all kinds of hugs and sweetness. i'm pretty sure i could have scratched the dolls all together and they would have been completely thrilled by those little birds that took less than 20 min. to make! Cutest, silliest little kids ever. :) LOVE them.
