a tale of two hearts

alli and elena

Just found this post...clearly I wrote it a while back but forgot to publish it!
Look who came over for a christmas dinner the other night.

I ran up stairs and brought down the only toys I could find in the house. Exhibit A - my first doll, Elena. I loved that doll to death -literally...her death! Poor thing, I don't know how many times mum had to sew her up.  I was so thrilled that Alli saw past all the stains, pen marks and her wonky eye and just enjoyed playing with her.
ps: notice how I strategically avoided taking a photo of the dolls (slightly disturbing, one eye wonky) face. I learnt from my mistakes last time!
