Happy Dollidays!

Happy Hanukkah, Christmas, Kwanzaa, and New Year! Today has been super busy here at my house. We went to church in the morning, and then we opened our Christmas presents when we got back home. This year, my brothers went the extra mile and put a ton of thought into their gifts, and I am happy to say that they were very thrilled when they opened a Kinect for their Xbox 360 (boys and their video games, haha). For some reason, I don't like getting AG presents from others; it's so weird, I prefer to buy it all myself. Sooo, I know I said in my videos that I would be getting Ruthie and Ivy from the AGPNY for Christmas,
but because of all of the used dolls that I have bought in the past month from Thanksgiving until now, and because McKenna is coming out in a week, I've decided to hold off on buying Ruthie and Ivy brand new for now. I will get them soon though, my historical collection is missing them, and I have collectors OCD; whether it's magazines (something I also collect) or dolls, I hate missing things from my collection, so no worries, I will get those two soon.
Now all I have to do is find my camera so I can take pictures of my Christmas AG loot. But for now, I'll just list the new dollies (well, they were used but they are new to me):

  • Felicity
  • Kirsten
  • Kit
  • Julie
  • Nicki
  • Nicki 2
  • JLY 28
  • JLY 30
Geez, that's a lot of dolls in a month, but at an average of $50 each, it's kind of hard to pass up, you know? I will be making a review video on McKenna the day that I get her, so I will also make a video showing the newest dolls to my collection. I will have to do lots of updated videos soon; it's so funny, every time I do a video I have a different group of dolls every time. Since my last collection video showing all of my dolls, I've sold some and bought some. I swear, for every doll that leaves my collection, two or three end up coming my way. Off of the top of my head, I know that I sold one of my JLY 4 and 25 and one of my Jess twins.
 I always go through phases where I feel like I have too many dolls that I don't "connect" with. I know that they are just dolls, but especially with used dolls, sometimes I will buy a doll that I end up not liking. For instance, it took me lots of trys to find the Felicity that I ended up keeping. I must have bought and sold at least 5 different Felcity dolls before I found the one that I have now. Same thing with JLY 25. I remember going to the AGPNY a couple of years ago before I had my JLY 25 and the store doll had such silky hair, if my JLY 25 doesn't have the same hair, I eventually end up selling her. I guess this problem could be solved if I just bought new dolls every time, but every time I say that, a used doll comes along at an amazing, hard to resist price, and sometimes I end up getting lucky. Speaking of which, I'm really feeling for one of the newer MyAG dolls (like #s 41, 43, 48, or 55) so maybe a bargain priced one will pop up soon. Fingers crossed!
