We celebrated just one birthday at the preschool in March (which makes me very nervous as I realize we will have to squeeze the remaining ten celebrations into the last seven weeks left of school *gulp*). Our darling Ruby turned five. I needed to make her a gnome girl doll as playing with the gnomes is one of her most favorite things to do at school. If I don't make a pouch for the gift, then I usually give the doll something to hold. In Ruby's case, the bunny was the perfect thing to place in the gnome girl's arms. Quiet and gentle, sweet and considerate, yet courageous and strong willed are some of Ruby's best qualities...I will miss dearly her when she goes to Kindergarten next year.
It was easy to choose a color for the doll. Ruby loves purple, wears it almost every day.
