Funny you should ask about the book. I was suppose to have a copy by today to approve it, but they are having some trouble with the cover. I will post when it will be available for purchase as soon as I know for sure. They have been assuring me that it should be ready for the public next week...we will wait and see. Thank you so much for your encouragement. It is greatly appreciated.

And, yes Crissy is the doll that has the hair you can pull out. I have had several people say something. Must have been popular in the day!

Have a great WARM day. I'm rather jealous today.
