This week’s Throwback Thursday theme is Birthdays – more specifically, birthday dresses for the American Girl Historical characters that are now retired. We only have a few photos but what we have are gorgeous!

From Rachael – Here is Felicity, Elizabeth, Kit, and Molly in their birthday dresses celebrating my 20th birthday last year! Elizabeth doesn’t have an official outfit, but she thinks her Tea Outfit is pretty nice! =)

From Tony – Jane (Marie-Grace) and Nellie are helping Elizabeth (JLY #7) celebrate her birthday. Elizabeth is wearing Kirsten’s Birthday Dress, Apron, and Daisy Wreath (retired in 2009). They are playing Molly’s Party Games (retired in 2006) – pin the tail on the donkey, milk bottle and clothespins drop, roller skates, and jump rope. Then they are going to enjoy Molly’s Party Treats (retired in 2011) – cake and candles, noisemakers (retired in 2006), yellow balloon, and red geranium plant in pot – I couldn’t find the candy cups and party poppers, but they are here somewhere.

From Granof4 – Bethany in Caroline’s birthday outfit and Samantha in hers. Samantha’s outfit is missing the circlet, her socks and shoes are different than what came originally.

From Katie – Samantha in her birthday dress.

From Jaclynn – This is Addy in her Birthday Outfit that retired in 2013.

Thanks to all who sent photos in today! For next week the theme is going to be HOODS! Yes, any RETIRED MyAG or store exclusive outfit that included a hood such as a hooded sweatshirt, hooded shirt or hooded jacket. Please save me time by resizing your images to 540 pixels wide first and put THROWBACK HOODS in the subject line of your email to me at
