American Girl historical character, Ruthie Smithens, better known as Kit’s best friend, is today’s doll of the day. Ruthie is wearing Kit’s birthday dress in this photo and I must say that the green looks very pretty with her dark hair and gray eyes. I chose Ruthie to be our star today, because she is such a great friend who just wants to help everyone be happy. I have a few friends like Ruthie – friends I know are always there for me, and I am so grateful for them.

Kit’s dog Grace loves Ruthie, too, and has been spending a lot of time with her lately. Ruthie is getting cupcakes out to go with tea this afternoon. Now all she needs is for Kit to bring out the tea so they can enjoy it.
Ruthie getting ready for bed in her pink satiny pajamas. While it looks like these button up the front, they actually velcro in the back. There is an R on the pocket and the pants are actually little bitty polka dots. The pink slippers for this outfit are so cute, too.
Hair brushed and out of her face and Grace curled up under her arm! Did you notice Ruthie even moved her bed to another room? What an amazing girl? 😉
Ruthie’s activity sheet includes her trading card and mini poster, along with two activities on friendship – what does it mean to you and how many words can you make from friendship?
