Merry Christmas!

MERRY CHRISTMAS!

Christmas 1963

It's hard to top the sheer joy of Christmas 1963 when I got a Chatty Cathy doll!  My Aunt Connie cheerfully posed with me. Note how styling we both are with our fur lined coats!

I had one of those too, when I was young. Christmas really did feel magical.

I haven't thought about a Chatty Cathy in years!!!
How excited you look! Fun memories!
I never really played much with baby dolls--I loved my Barbies and I had the Fashion Shop!!! I would put on little fashion shows!! haha And ride Barbie in her convertible!
