Bamboletta Dolls

Oh how we love these sweet little dolls. They are made with such love and artistry it tickles my soul to know that my children are blessed with their very own Bamboletta.
A few months back I sheepishly took the "buy handmade" pledge. I affirmed that I would in fact buy handmade, local, or from family owned business whenever possible. So over the next few days I am going to share some of our wonderful gifts this Christmas.

The first is from Bamboletta Dolls. Over the past several months we have been collecting Bamboletta Dolls. Not only are they handmade and breathtakingly gorgeous but they are eco-friendly and all natural! The dolls can go anywhere with my kids, and yes I mean anywhere. We have taken them into the OR, EEG's, EKG's, X-Ray's of all kinds, Ambulances, backyards, grocery stores, secure areas on a military base, etc....etc....etc.... The dolls are stuffed with naturally anti-microbial wool and therefore retain the smells of their surroundings. When Bren took a 5 week TDY this year he slept with a Bamboletta for a week prior and for the duration of the trip there was a faint smell of daddy for the kiddos to inhale.

Avagrace was the first to get a Bamboletta doll back for her birthday. It was for the soul purpose of giving her a friend that could go through all of her tests with her. It worked. Mari has had more EEG's than any doll I know! Well all the kids fell in love and now everyone but Liam has a Bamboletta!
Here is the pics from Christmas morning! Enjoy!

Merry Christmas!

I have been out of touch with my blog for a bit because I left my laptop at one of my best friends house that is an hour away. Thanks so much for your emails, we are doing well! Felicity had her puppies and we are having a blast this lovely Christmas Night! I will be back to writing full time again very soon!

God Bless!
