For my daughter's 6th birthday last year, she received McKenna, American Girl Doll of the year 2012. McKenna's background is she is a gymnast; My daughter LOVES gymnastics, so this doll and party theme were perfect for us. My husband and I were both active duty Air Force and I love red, white and blue. The American Girl logo is stars. So that is how all the ideas tie in to our party. My daughter was allowed to invite 7 friends for a small backyard party. We set up a gymnastics circuit. They also got to play with their dolls and make bookmarks with their names on them. The party went by fast and was lots of fun!
Seeing my daughter so happy on her special day!
When one little girl showed us her doll which she HEAVILY put eye liner on (at home), lol. It might be permanant!
