Trick or Treating with Barbie #BarbiePhotoFashion

You know how I feel about the princess culture, but my girls wanted to be sparkly pink princesses this year for Halloween. Both of them, separately. I tried to talk them out of pink princess costumes, but they screamed and cried and insisted. I gave up. They wanted to be pink sparkly princesses, so be it.

Barbie A Perfect Christmas DVD Review

Grace loves Barbie. She saw the Barbie A Perfect Christmas DVD at Walmart a few weeks ago, and the begging began.
