At the tip top of a very special Christmas tree at Jennifer and Darby Doan’s sits a splendid little star. It was handcrafted by their oldest daughter during her time as a student at St. James Day School. The toilet paper core, painted green and crowned with a sparkly paper star, holds a special role as the official tree topper. Though they set up several trees each year, this one holds all the ornaments that their daughters, Katherine Anne and Johanna Claire, have made or collected over the years, and in the center, they tuck in a collection of Beanie Babies from when their girls were small.

“GiGi, don’t you have this one?” … My seven-year-old granddaughter was indicating an image in a special Barbie edition of Life Magazine I had bought for her. Okay, maybe I really bought it for myself, but I let her look at it whenever she wants to. … I explained to Bryce that “this one” was actually “the one” that started the whole thing. With her blonde ponytail and her black and white strapless swimsuit, she was the original Barbie doll. I also explained that, while the one in my collection looks just like her, she’s really a 50th Anniversary special edition and not the original.
