Relaxing At The Pool :)

Ugh! It is SO hot today- it’s like 108 degrees!! Isn’t that disgusting? I hate the heat, but I LOVE to go swimming in our pool! Annika hadn’t been swimming yet so she wanted to go for a quick dip 😉

image

Annika- “Hmm.. That’s a pretty big pool! I think I’ll just stay in the shallow.”

image

Annika- “Whew! The water felt a little cold, but it still felt great!”

image

After her swim she wanted to lay out and try to get a sun tan.

image

Aaaah… How relaxing :)

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

If you’re wondering where I got the chair my mom and I found it at Jo~Ann about a week ago. It was broken and on sale for about $4 and we asked if they would take the price down lower since it’s broken- we ended up only paying $2 for it!

My grandpa is so amazing, too! He fixed it for me- I love my grandpa :)

What do you like to do on a hot day?

Crafts at Camp :)

Annika has been officially enrolled at Camp Doll Diaries today! She’s excited, but also nervous 😉
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
It was a beautifiul day at Camp today. The sun was shining, the sky was blue, and birds were singing. Rebecca and Annika didn’t want to be outside much because it was too hot out. Some of the other girls went river rafting, others went riding, and a few more went for a hike. Rebecca asked Annika if she wanted to do a craft.
“Sure! That sounds like fun!” Annika answered. So they set off to the Crafting Cabin.

image

Rebecca- “Let’s make sure we’re going the right way. I’m still finding my way around here.”

Annika- “Ok!”
The girls looked at the Camp Sign and found they were going the right way.

image

After walking a bit more they finally came to the Crafting Cabin!

image

Little Lilacs Cabin Leader, Felicity was running the craft table today.
Felicity- “Hi Rebecca, hi Annika! Want to make some decorative candles for your cabin?”

Both- “Ok! What do we need?”

image

After about 20-25 minutes had passed, the two girls had made some lovely candles.
Felicity- “Your candles look great, girls! I couldn’t have done better myself!”

Both- “Thank you, Lissie!”

image

Here’s Rebecca’s candle- she made an apple scented candle!

image

And here is Annika’s candle- hers is vanilla scented :)

image

I hope you enjoyed the post! These candles were so much fun to make and you can make them, too! Here’s a basic explanation on how to make it:
Cut a paper towel tube to a good size for a doll candle.
Cut a strip of colored fun foam to go around it and glue it on.
Next, trace the tube on a candle colored piece of fun foam and glue on your piece.
For the flame make some squiggles on fire colored fun foam. Cut it out and glue on.
Find some fun pom-poms and decorate! Use your imagination!
*Note- I used a hot glue gun for everything. Be very careful when gluing so you don’t burn yourself! Also, I glued on my pom-poms ;)*

Have fun!

Photoshoot of Annika & Her Friend Cecile

The day I got Annika I went straight to my friends house to play with our new dolls. When we were leaving I noticed how beautiful their front yard was for picture taking. I just had to take some pictures!

image

I love this one! She looks so beautiful :)

image

Taking a walk through the yard.

image

Looks like she’s day dreaming- “Annika, can you look at me, please?”

image

“Thank you, sweetie.” :)

image

Picking some flowers.

image

She posed for a picture-

image

– And Cecile joined, too!

image

On their way to check the mail Cecile got a bit distracted, “WOW! What’s that?!?” Cecile exclaimed.

image

“Oh, it’s a basketball hoop!” Annika answered.

“It’s SO BIG!!” Cecile exclaimed again.

image

Cecile checking the mail :)

image

“It’s just my size!!” Annika exclaimed. She says she want to watch Narnia- Hehe!

image

“Cece! Get down! You could fall and hurt yourself!” Annika said.

image

They posed for their final picture. I think it’s so sweet :)

*Note- I am so shocked that I took my brand new doll outside and placed her on the ground!! I don’t know what came over me!! I must be coming out of my shell- Hehe!* 😀

Dolly Delights- Let’s Make Some Wafer Cookies!

Today I was feeling super crafty and I just HAD to make something! I went through some ideas on AGFan, but nothing stood out to me today. Then I got out a TON of craft supplies and wanted to make some cookies! So I’m going to show you how to make some Wafer Cookies!

image

They’re pretty fast and easy to make, so I think you’ll like making them!

image

First you’ll need some supplies:

1. Some Fun Foam in tan, light pink, and medium brown.

2. A Ruler

3. Some Scissors

4. A Pen

5. A Hot Glue Gun (regular glue will work, too, but it will take longer)

6. A Parent or Guardian to help you. (You may not need it, but you may want some help when using the Hot Glue Gun)

Now let’s get busy!

image

First measure and mark 7/8″ wide-

image

-And 1 3/4″ tall.

image

Make a bunch of tracings together and cut all at the same time.
*Note: You will need one strip of medium brown or pink to be the filling*

image

When you’ve cut out 2 strips of tan and 1 strip for the middle you can start gluing. If you’re using Hot Glue just make one line down the middle and push together.
*Note: I made a line of glue on one side of the tan and pushed the filling to it, and then I put a line on the filling and pushed the bottom of the cookie to that.*

image

Now you’re done! Isn’t it adorable?!?

image

My dolls can’t wait to eat these tomorrow when their new sister comes!

I hope you had fun making these fast and easy cookies :)

What is your favorite cookie?
