I believe she grew 3 inches since last summer! Looking at the pictures, I think it's the age 3 to 4 that is the biggest difference to me.

Oh your relationship with V is too cute! I love that your her nanny and you guys get to spend so much time together doing fun things! Also that was pretty great that her parents footed most of the bill the first time around!

She is too cute with that gorgeous red hair, like a little Ariel! Can't wait to read the rest of the TR, curious to see how she handles the heat!

Oh I don't know I'm pretty lucky to have them. We have a pretty unique relationship. What family you know would let the nanny take their daughter to Disney! lol I am super duper lucky.

It's a pretty great thing, very unique. V's grandma once tried to describe it to someone else at a family get together, I happen to be there for. "Well it's like a big sister, well no not really... an aunt....." finally she just gave up and said. "You can't explain it, it just is what it is." I think my MB's side of the family (MB=Mom Boss) thinks having a nanny is over the top rather than daycare, but hey if you can afford it..... I think I relate being a nanny to a sort of similar relationship as a step parent. Of course that said, I've never had a step parent so I'm not sure if that is an accurate description!

She really has. Junior Kindergarten and school=attitude however. There was more boundry testing with words and attitudes and just more voicing her opinions and not listening this year than the "terrible two's" lol. Her Two's were great! (well aside from the potty training but that is a whole other story that we won't get in to!)

Yes it was awesome her parents did foot the bill last year... I'm not going to lie some comments MB (Mom Boss) made just after our trip makes me think that just maybe there could be a trip next summer. I of course Cannot pay for it. So there won't be a trip if I am paying for it!

Prologue: Elizabeth

I should have also introduced Elizabeth! I forgot about her a bit, but she definitely is an important part of our trip!



V got her on our trip. After being on Disboutiquers thread and then finding D's PTR and such, I ended up deciding to get V an American Girl Doll.

Special Thanks to Janet, Judy, and D (an whoever else!) for answering questions for me as I tried to figure out which one to buy.

I ended up ordering the red curly haired doll with blue eyes. They did not have a red curly haired doll with brown eyes. There was a red haired doll with straight hair and brown eyes but the hair on the curly haired one looked so much like V's I decided the hair was more important than the eye color.

After getting her, V was very quick to name her Elizabeth. I wasn't surprised. I figured her name would either be Elizabeth or Ava or Avery. Those are the names of V's friends from school. I "may have tried to convice her to go with Ava... but she chose Elizabeth. Elizabeth Ava P....

Here are two more pics. The dresses V and Elizabeth are wearing are dresses I made last spring. My first attempt at sewing since 7th grade!





Is the larger size font easier to read/find posts or just annoying?

Wow, I couldn't tell that you were relatively inexperienced at sewing, I thought those were store-bought! I have auburn hair and I grew up loving American Girl but I couldn't get one who looked like me, unlike my sister.

What great pictures!

Oh, and I the fabric you used!

V is a lucky little girl! Sounds like a great trip. I'll be following along. I have a 6yr.old and it sounds like she likes a lot of the same things as V. We stayed in a royal guest room in June.

This is so great! I have a 2.5 year old nephew who I take care of during the summer and quite a bit during the school year (I am a teacher too!) and I can't wait to be able to take him on special fun vacations. :-)

Can't wait to read more!
