The Big Party

Capping off VTBarbie's Chicago visit was an invitation to the Windy City Collectors annual dinner. Michael and I surprised VTBarbie with a lovely evening gown to enjoy the evening in.

We arrived at the big dinner and found our table.

There were so many people to meet and our table was full of wonderful guests.

And everyone was dressed to the nines!

The food was delicious!

And in honor of Ken's birthday (the theme of the dinner), Jef Beck was on hand to give a presentation on, what else but his favoite subject, Ken. He also had a book signing.

There was so much going on. There were people selling items, there was a ton of raffle baskets, and there socializing all around. Isn't this a beautiful scene?

This was the gift...not one doll, but a set. And there was even a birthday cake for Ken.

There was a lovely photo op background that VTBarbie took advantage of.

I think VTBarbie loved her dress!

And of course VTBarbie met up with Travel Ken.

Our hostess for the evening invited everyone over for a group shot.

Everyone looked fabulous!!

And VTBarbie and Travel Ken had a great time!

But VRBarbie's night was made when she got the chance to meet Jef Beck. He even autographed his book just for her. What a fabulous night!!
