The day after our Holiday Gala reader photo event closed I got the sweetest email from Rachael. She is a college student and had just got home from college for the break and missed the deadline to submit photos, but wanted to know if she could still send some in. Of course, I said yes – and oh am I glad I did! Rachael has some beautifully, detailed scenes set up of her dolls – they really seem to come to life!

American Girl Christmas Scene

See what I mean? How adorable is this scene? Kit and Elizabeth are working hard on the decorations and Mini Kirsten and Mini Samantha are having fun with the gifts.

Molly reading Mini Molly a Christmas story. Look at all the cute little things on the shelves – from the snow globe to the board game!

Kit putting the finishing touches on the red and green garland. Rachael has obviously been collecting for quite some time – you can see the classic Miss AG Bear on the bed.

Thank you so much Rachael for taking the time to share your beautiful, and obviously well loved dolls with us!! Enjoy your winter break, too!
