What's In a Name?

Before we begin our story, let me just explain how she came to have such a name. Her actual name is Genevieve. She is a life-size Princess Barbie Amiyah received this past Christmas.
Being that she is life-size, she came wearing a beautiful ballerina outfit that would fit just about any 3~5 yr. old. Amiyah, of course, had to try it on. From that day on, Genevieve's outift remained in the the closet for Amiyah to play dress-up with, she would never get it back. Genevieve, would be naked forever.
Grandma (my mom) came for a visit this week. While I was in the living room with the bean, Grandma, and Amiyah were in her room playing Dance Party.
I thought it would be a great idea to take pictures of them dancing around. So, I grabbed the camera, and walked into her bedroom. I wasn't welcome, of course. When Grandma comes, only Amiyah is allowed to play with her. Needless to say, I pleaded with Amiyah to let me in, and she was reluctant, but agreed. Sheesh!!
I sat quietly ( or I would have been kicked out) on Amiyah's bed to capture the show, only to turn and see my daughter manhandling Genevieve. So to get her to take a picture with her doll, I started asking questions. One was " What's your dolls name?" to which she replied, "Naked Thing."
My mom and I looked at each other and began to laugh hysterically, we could not believe what we had just heard, and she said it as if that was the name she had given her from the beginning.
So, I started taking pictures of her and "Naked Thing" just to see exactly what she was doing.
I think she was trying to dance with her, but then it turned into wrestling. Still cracking up, my mom and I started making up a story about what it looked like was going on.
So, to end, I have decided to blog about the Adventures of Naked Thing, and this is the very first one. Enjoy!

The Adventures of Naked Thing~ Part 1

Officer Amiyah got a call about a girl being a little rowdy at a tea party.
When she showed up on the scene, she saw Naked Thing, disturbing the peace. She tried talking to her, but Naked Thing had a little more tea than she should have. Seeing that Officer Amiyah noticed this, she turned to run.
Almost out of breath, Officer Amiyah, finally caught up with her, but, as you can see in the picture, she was putting up a pretty good fight.

After telling the guests to clear the area, she forced Naked Thing onto the table to place her under arrest.

Officer Amiyah Knew this wasn't going to be easy,
she immediately called for backup.
In a matter of minutes officer Grandma arrived on the scene to assist.
They finally apprehended Naked Thing and drove her down to the station to book.
