Meet Miss Alice...

This is my rag doll Miss Alice Tumuhairwe. I named her after a lady I met once who is a missionary in Africa. She is so very lovely!
Alice is wearing: a green, calico, cotton day dress (1860's) that I made out of scraps from my day dress that I made from some old curtains. =] (honest.)
And an apron that I made out of an old blouse that I had. (It was too cute to get rid of!)
Her favorite things to do are: dressing up, going to Civil War reenactments and dancin'. =]

Alice and Emaline are the Best of Friends!

Miss Sara Kalei

The Johnsons were traveling the Oregon Trail. They came across a wagon that had fallen apart and the parents had left the children to find help. The children told the Johnsons that their parents had been gone for three weeks and they had not heard a word. So,the Johnsons took the hungry children into their care and ended up adopting them when they got to Oregon. They later found the parents had died of starvation.

One of the children who was adopted by the Johnson family was Sara Kalei. Before Sara was adopted she had two brothers and one sister. After she was adopted she had six brothers and two sisters.

My family and I (Savannah) came across Sara's family just in time. If we had come three days later, all of the kids would have died.

Sara went back to Harpers Ferry with me, but later fell in love and moved back to Oregon.

Sara loves just about the same things that I do. She also loves to be out in the country. Sara does not get to spend much time with her friends,but when she does, she treasures every moment that she has with them.

Sara mean: Princess and Kalei means: One who serves the King.

Since I told all about Sara, she would like to take this time to tell you what my name means.

Savannah means: Open Plains
Mariee means: Sea of Bitterness

Let me tell you that Savannah is not bitter one bit!

I'm so glad that I can be a part of this Circle of Friends!
