Dolls + my ethnic genetics = scary

My sister just returned from a trip to Vietnam (we're half-Vietnamese) and gleefully snapped these photos especially for me while shopping in the marketplaces, well aware of my creep-out toward dolls in general.


This one below especially cracks me up because: A) the arm/body proportions are off, and B) am I to believe that this represents the average Vietnamese child's attire?

Oh, wait a second...

I love knowing I can always come here for giggles. It's nice to have something to laugh about each morning.
Griffin = cuter than cute

Haha! Where did your fear of dolls come from? And Griffin is such a cutie in his little hat :]

Yowza! Those are creepier than the average doll. I'm especially freaked by the little lady in pink. Your child in no way resembles one of these crazy looking things.

Those dolls are creepy...oy. When we go to Target and walk down the doll aisle, there are some dolls that are motion activated and coo and laugh (they have creepy little voices, too!) when you walk by...I avoid that aisle at all costs now! eeeeeeek!!!

ps...I gave your blog a little award over on my blog...hope you have a great day! :)
