I have attached a few photos featuring Samantha. I have many, but chose a selection from those that I’ve sent to Sunday Showcase over the years. The photos illustrate some of her clothes and accessories from her school, birdwatching, summer, winter and bed time collections. My doll, Katherine, is a tan bodied Pleasant Company “Samantha”

Happy birthday Samantha! I’ve had Samantha since 2006 I believe, and she
is one of my favorite dolls. She was my first American Girl Doll. This
picture is one of my favorites that I’ve taken of her. I got her Victorian
Dress from Hobby Lobby. If you’d like to see more pictures of Samantha in
her dress, go to
Happy birthday Samantha!
