It's hard to believe that Peepy and I are back from our American Girl 25th Birthday Cruise to the Caribbean!
A few months ago I got a phone call inviting me to participate in the birthday celebration. Oh, and it's on a cruise ship, I was told. It took me all of .001 seconds to say, "YES!"
First we flew to Miami and then boarded the Celebrity Eclipse . . .
The ship was huge and utterly gorgeous . . .
I especially loved the American Girl Lounge where girls could drop by anytime to do crafts . . .
And look! There was a library on board . . .
I was allowed to bring a guest, so since there were so many mothers and daughters onboard, it was only fitting that I bring Teen. Here she is with me and American Girl authors Mary Casanova and Valerie Tripp . . .
In honor of Kanani, the 2011 Girl of the Year, there was a spectacular luau . . .
Here's a time lapse of guests gathering before I went on stage . . .
The audience was so enthusiastic, I felt like a rock star!!!
Every girl got a copy of ALOHA, KANANI (and their dolls got grass skirts and other goodies). It was fun signing the books and meeting the girls . . .
Every night before bed the girls got a special gift. Here's Peepy with one of her presents -- a Peep-sized bed . . .

BTW, here's what happened in my home town this week. Yes, I returned just in time for the hurricane-like winds and destruction.
