Flashback Friday--The Year of the Cabbage Patch


Christmas Flashback #1

So I don't actually remember wanting or receiving a Cabbage Patch Doll for Christmas. I don't remember playing with one or ever having one, in fact. But apparently I did and I have, and little me looks pretty darn happy. 

This was the short-lived bang era and also clearly a time when I didn't mind wearing stripes. After this, I refused to wear stripes until about a year ago. Now, for some reason I keep buying myself shirts with stripes. I don't know what's going on. But that's really beside the point. The point being that this is me with a Cabbage Patch Doll at Christmas.

  1. Hahaa... SO CUTE! My 5 year old self is super jealous! I remember only wanting cabbage patch dolls for a couple X-mas's ! Funny stuff!

  2. Man, I hated Cabbage Patch dolls. They were just really creepy to me. Maybe it was their thick, choppy hands. Shudder. I wonder where yours is now?

  3. Adorable picture! I loved Cabbage Patch dolls!

  4. I still have my first cabbage patch. I wrote my name on her head in those bald spots under the yarn hair. Most of the time she was naked and covered in dirt. I was a tom boy - but loved that doll.
