Today after I cleaned my room and thought about what I wanted to do, I decided I’d take my “kids” to the “park”! So of course that means I need props and stuff for them to play on. I made the swings easily because I’d done it before but the slide was a bit tricky- I had to actually make one! Here is a picture of the slide:
Isn’t it cute?!? I’ll tell you how I made it:First I got the box from Saige’s Painting Set knowing it would work with it. Then I remembered some strips of styrofoam my mom had cut to make something. She gave me 4 to use if I wanted to. I was going to throw them out so I went in the kitchen and grabbed them out of my trash bag (remember- I was cleaning my room, lol!). Then I got some tape and taped them onto the box! I had to trim the ends a bit because they were sticking out. Next I remembered I was going to cut the flaps off of the Baking Accessories box so it’d look more like a kitten bed- so I cut all the flaps off and taped them to the sides making the rails to hold onto while climbing up! Next I got the lid from the Berry Wheelchair and taped that to the ladder. While I thought it was a great idea the “steps” broke the second or third time I put Rebecca’s feet on there 🙁 Oh well! I can pretend they climb up!
My mom says if I’d used stronger tape it probably wouldn’t have broken, so if you want to try making one with stronger tape (I used scotch tape) it might work. Gotta go now! They’re waiting for me to take them to the park! I hope you enjoyed it!
I’m so sad- http://www.americangirl.com has taken off the wishlist option! I used to have so much fun with that thing throughout the year! Luckily I have one of my recent ones printed out. I wonder why they took it away? I wonder if they’ll add something better? Who knows! I’m just very disappointed! I used it for Christmas, my birthday, and just for random if I wanted to buy stuff! I’m going to miss it 🙁
What are your thoughts about it? Did you used to use the wishlist? Are you sad that they took it away?
P.S. Also I’ve notice that if I go to americangirl.com/shop it’s having technical difficulties. Like some things I can’t click on or aren’t loading. Are you having that problem too? They need to fix it! This is the second day for me! LOL!
I’m SO excited! Saige’s movie trailer is out on americangirl.com!
Here’s the link:
[It’s on that page near the bottom!]
Also I found out on http://www.americangirlfan.com that the release date is July 2nd! That’s just 3 months away!!!
What do you think of the trailer? Are you excited for her movie? Do you think you’ll buy it when it’s released?
I’m definitely excited for it! I love it when AG makes movies for the dolls!
Today, I’m so happy to report that Rebecca is coming home!!!
Here are some pictures from her tests yesterday and coming home today!
They had to take some blood tests- poor thing!
All bandaged up.
*inhale, exhale, inhale, exhale* They listened to her heart beat.
Temperature looks good!
“Well, Rebecca- you’re good to go home!” Said doctor Jack. (hehe! Kinda like “Jaclynn” since I was the doctor of course!)
“YAAAAAY!!!” Rebecca exclaimed! “But, what is wrong with me, doctor?” She asked.
“Well, it seems you’re Anemic. It’s nothing serious- you just have to change your diet to eating things with iron in it, such as spinach and green vegetables. The reason you passed out those couple of times is because the red blood cell count is low. If you start getting more iron in your diet- as well as taking some iron vitamins- you’ll be better in no time!” Doctor Jack explained.
“Ooooh! Ok, thank you doctor!” Rebecca said happily, besides the fact that she doesn’t like spinach-blech!
“Mommy!!! I’m fine! I just have Ameniack!” She said.
“Oh, wonderful! And it’s “Anemia”, sweetie.” I corrected.
The doctor explained everything to me while Rebecca’s things were packed.
While we drove home Rebecca smiled. She couldn’t wait to be home with her brothers and sisters- even if she did have to eat spinach!
Yay! Rebecca’s gonna be just fine! I thought she was going to need surgery! Ugh- the worries of a mom (hehe)!
Have you ever been Anemic before? Have your dolls ever needed surgery?
After church today, Saige and I went to visit Rebecca at the hospital before they did her tests. Rebecca would like to tell you what happened when we arrived;
The nurse knocked on the door and entered my room.
“You have some visitors, Rebecca.” She said. She’s a very nice nurse!
“Mommy! Saige! I’m so happy to see you! I’ve been so lonely in here.” I said, feeling empty inside, but glad to see my mommy and sister at the same time.
“Hi, Rebecca!”, Saige said, “How are you feeling?” She stroked my head.
“Alright- Just sad.” I replied.
“Hey, sweetie, we brought you some things to make you feel better.” Mommy said.
“What?” I asked, my spirits being lifted already.
I gasped! “My doll! Oh, thank you so much!!” I was so happy to have my doll back. “Could you help me into my wheelchair?” I asked. I wanted to look at everything better.
“My shawl! This will help a bunch- it’s always so cold in here.” I said gratefully.
“Marie-Grace sent you her slippers. She said she could do without them until you come home.” Mommy explained.
“Aw, she’s so sweet! Tell her I said thank you!” I replied.
“I thought you might get bored in here, so I decided to lend you my drawing pad.” Saige said, a bit shy.
“Thank you, Saige! This will keep me entertained for a long time!” I said, and she smiled.
“Oh, Saige!! This is beautiful!! Thank you so much!!” I said holding up a painting that Saige had just finished.
“Do you really like it? I thought you could use some color in here to make you feel better.” Saige said.
“Oh, I do! You did a great job!” I told her.
Here I am with all my stuff to keep me busy. I’m so grateful to have such a wonderful and caring family!
Then the nurse walked in and said;
“I’m sorry to interrupt but I’m afraid visiting time is over. It’s time for Rebecca’s tests.”
Mommy replied- “Oh, I see. Thank you nurse!” Then she turned to me and gave me a hug. “We’ll be in the waiting room. We’re going to stay here until we find out what’s wrong with you. You’ll be just fine- I’m here and God is always with you.” And with that she gave me a kiss and left the room. Next thing I knew I was on my way to have my tests done. I couldn’t wait to find out what was wrong with me.
Hi, it’s Jaclynn again!
Poor Rebecca. What do you think is wrong with her? Will she need surgery? I don’t know yet. The doctor said the test results won’t come in until tomorrow. I’m so worried about my girl! 🙁
Stay tuned for part 3 coming up tomorrow!
Poor Rebecca! She just got sick and we had to call an ambulance to take her to the hospital. We don’t know what’s wrong with her yet- she has to stay over for some tests 🙁
Here’s Rebecca in her room at the Hospital.
“Hmm.. I think I’ll read a book and have a truffle.” Rebecca said, feeling very depressed and lonely.
After she read her book and ate a truffle the nurse came in and said;
“You should get some rest, Rebecca. Doctor’s orders.”
So Rebecca climbed into bed to rest. She’s always been one to follow the rules.
Get well soon, Rebecca! Hugs & kisses to you!! <3
Have your dolls ever been to the hospital?
I’m happy to report that I finally updated my “Meet My Dolls” page!! Go check it out! Felicity is on there right now!!
I hope you have fun learning about her 🙂
I’m so happy! Today is Rebecca’s birthday!! And then Addy’s is on the 9th and Felicity’s on the 21st!! WOW! I have a LOT of birthdays to celebrate this month! Since there’s so many and not too far apart I thought it’d be too much to celebrate 3 birthdays on separate days, so I decided to have one BIG birthday party for ALL OF THEM!!! This is how they celebrated 🙂
The pretty table with all of the delicious foods!
“Joesfina! I can’t believe you’re eating a cupcake! We were supposed to wait until Rebecca, Addy, and Lissie came and we all shout “SURPISE”!!” Kanani said.
“Well, I helped make them- so I can eat’em whenever I want!
Anyways stop scolding me!” Josefina replied.
“Why?” Kanani asked.
“Because, 1- I’m older than you. 2- I’m hungry. And 3- You don’t want me to be annoyed at the party!!” Josefina explained with a mischievious grin.
“When are they gonna get here?” Asked Caroline getting very excited.
“I don’t know! But we have to be patient! Anyways, they’re just in the other room! Hehe!” Saige said with a giggle.
“Here they COME!!” Marie-Grace said enthusiastically!
“SURPIIIIISE!!! HAPPY BIRTHDAY GIRLS!!!!!” Everyone shouted.
“Oh my goodness! Thank you!!!” Felicity, Addy, and Rebecca said in unison.
“Look! We have TONS of food! Dig in!” Kirsten said, feeling very proud of herself.
After much eating it was time to open gifts!
“Saige! It’s beatiful!” Lissie said holding up her drawing of some lovely horses.
“Thank you, Saige!” Addy said very grateful.
“I LOVE it!” Rebecca said.
“I’m glad! It’s not from a store but I didn’t have any money and I wanted to get you something.” Saige said a little shy.
“Oh, Saige! It’s ok! Homemade gifts are the very best of all!” Felicity said, always able to cheer up her sisters.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY, REBECCA!!!! I LOVE YOU SWEET GIRL!!
Do you have Rebecca? How do you celebrate your doll’s birthdays?
Hello! I hope you’re all having a great day so far! I think it’s time for another review! A review of Saige’s Painting Set!! Here we go!
Here’s a picture of all the wonderful items included in this set.
The easel is so amazing! It’s plastic that looks like wood and is great quality. The little gap pictured is to attach the cup which holds the paint brushes. And that little tab looking-thing is another gap to put the paintings in!
The easel easel-y (hehe- get it?) latches open and closed.
Here are the 5 tubes of paint! I love how they’re all squeezed differently! Hmm.. Saige must really like the yellow!
The set comes with 4 paint brushes in different sizes. I love the brushes because they’re just like REAL mini brushes! They’re so soft!!
Here’s the little cup that holds the brushes. See the little ball? That’s how it hooks on to the easel!
The painting palette is so cute! The little hole is where Saige’s thumb goes to hold it, but I have her hold it in that gap cause it looks more realistic. If she holds it in the hole (thinking realistically) all the paint would be spilling on the floor! If it’s in the gap- not so much 😉 Hmm.. The yellow paint tube is squeezed more- yet I see more black on there, don’t you?
The set comes with a little drawing pad. It has pages of real paper so you COULD draw on it- but don’t. If you did then Saige wouldn’t be able to “draw” anything else 😉
The art portfolio is so cute! The black elastic just slips over the front so you can get the drawings out.
All the beautiful drawings inside! They’re all so beautiful!
This has to be my favorite one! Look at that detail! I wonder if these are drawings of what the REAL Saige drew?
All 5 paintings on real canvas!! The quality and the detail just blows me away! AG did a great job with these!
These are my 2 favorite paintings! SO PRETTY!
And at a corner of each painting is Saige’s initials and the year. So cool!
That’s the end of our review! Everything in this is just AMAZING! Yes, it may be expensive for a little set like this BUT- you’re paying for the quality! I say that about alot of their products and it’s so true! All the drawings and paintings are so beautiful! My Saige is so happy to have this set!
If you’ve been struggling on whether or not to buy this, I hope I helped you decide!
Have a great rest of your day!
