Hi everyone! Recently I was going through some old pictures I took from like 2009-ish, and I thought it would be fun to show you all 🙂
First off, this is a picture of all my stuffed animals (at that time) set up on my floor as Spirit preached to them about the Prodigal Son. I called it Beanie Church 😉 Oh, and you see that little white goat down there that’s tied up? Yeah… He’s bad so he had to be tied up to keep him from going crazy. Kinda funny that his name is Fred the Friendly Goat, isn’t it? XD
I took this photo of Beth around Christmas time. I think she looks so precious 🙂
O_O Did that really used to be all I had? I can’t even remember what that was like! XD Oh, just an FYI for those who don’t know, but Addy and Josefina are my sister’s dolls 😉
I played Little House on The Prairie/country a LOT when I was little. Here we have Felicity and Addy doing some mending 😉
Kirsten making some eggs 🙂 (OH MY GOSH HER HAIR!!! :O )
Josefina tending to the baby 🙂
This was another time when I was playing “real life”. Felicity, Addy, and Caleb are all playing with cars on this mat I had, while Kirsten, Kendra, and Josefina play with their dolls 🙂
Beth looking all sweet 🙂
And for a bonus, this is a picture of my room after I cleaned it all up. It looks so different now. O_O I’ll have to show you guys what my room looks like now sometime 😉
Well, I hope you enjoyed taking a stroll through memory lane with me! I love having these pictures to look back to 🙂
Do you have photos of things you used to play when you were little?
Okay, I took like a gazillion pictures at the store of like EVERYTHING, so this is gonna have to be split into two or three parts! Crazy, huh?! So this part I’ll be focusing on the Beforever Characters 🙂
Here’s the table with all the food. I didn’t eat any of it…. What is wrong with me?! I think it’s because I felt stressed (we got there like 10 minutes before 10), they were just about to have a drawing, and I had gum. So yeah… I really wanted a muffin, though! LOL!
So true! 😀
Here’s the drawing – you had a chance to win Maryellen’s TV or a Bitty Baby!
Here’s Maryellen’s display!!! YAY!!
I love her collection SO much!! Like seriously – I want a lot of it! LOL
Doesn’t that spot look so empty?? I feel like there should be more there than just Maryellen herself!
Here’s her diner!! AAAHH!!!! It’s SO amazing!!! I can’t tell you how much I love it. I don’t care how much it is, I will buy this someday! 😀
Here’s my Maryellen visiting Grace’s La Patisserie 🙂
I just now realized that those are the only Maryellen photos I took…. What is wrong with me?! Ugh!
Oh! LOL! Here’s another picture of her diner! Isn’t it amazing??? 😀
Here’s Julie’s display 🙂
I love this coat so much, like oh my gosh! :O
I also really love this dress! It’s so cute!
What do you think of her new pajamas? I personally like her old ones better, but I think the new ones are still cute 🙂
Samantha’s Gazebo…. Aaaahh! So pretty!!!
The coat… :O I have a thing for coats, jackets, vests, pretty much anything that you wear over something LOL!
Oh, gosh, AG!! Why do you have so many amazingly huge furniture pieces that I want???
Samantha’s display is so full!! She has so much stuff!! (why not make Josefina’s collection a little bigger….)
Kit has a lot of cute stuff in her collection! I love the desk, the typewriter, her outfits – I really should get some of her outfits…
Like this one!! OMGOSH isn’t it the cutest?! 😀
*Sigh* Poor Josefina. Her collection is so small. I feel like she’s so neglected…. 🙁
Yay! Rebecca!! 😀
This dress is so amazing!
Alright, Addy and Josefina really need some more attention! Their collections are so small compared to the others! 🙁
Well, that ends this part! I’m sorry I didn’t get more pictures of Maryellen’s collection… Maybe I was too into looking at her stuff that I just forgot to take pics or something. Sorry about that 😕 Ummm…. I just realized that I have no pictures of Kaya or her collection…. I don’t even remember seeing her there! I must have walked passed it or something… Hmmm….
Anyways, it was a really fun day and it was so great to meet Mya, Amelia, and Rebekah! 😀
Look for part 2 of “Masquerade” coming later today and I will post the next part of the store photos tomorrow! Bye for now!
Hey everyone! Yesterday I cleaned out under my bed (my doll’s bedroom) because I’ve been having a ton of baby spiders in my room lately (*shudders*) and the other day I noticed a few under there, so I freaked out… Anyways! Back to the subject of this post – I set up my dolls to where they’re all doing something and I thought it’d be fun to show you what they’re up to 🙂
So here’s the overview! Some of them are hiding behind the curtains, though LOL!
Over here, Dallas is getting Pepper out of his bed so he, Eli, and Jeremy can play with him. Rapunzel is asking if she can play with him, too and Lissie is trying to get a book, but Dallas is in the way. You can kinda see Clara back there just hanging out 🙂
Bella, Ellie, and Snow are being as sweet as can be playing with Licorice 🙂
Belinda is helping Cecile with some school.
And Merida wants Belinda for something…. Probably to help her climb something 😛
And of course Caleb and Kendra are fighting and screaming at the top of their lungs. Kristoff is trying to pull Caleb off of Kendra and Annika starts to intervene. Mickey and Minnie are sad and scared by their fighting as usual, too 😉
Kanani, Riven-Delle, and Annika had all been talking, but then stopped instantly when they noticed Caleb and Kendra fighting. Anna was gonna talk to Riven-Delle, but also stopped when she noticed the fight.
Janie looking over at Caleb and Kendra. They attract a lot of attention to themselves whenever they fight 😛
Julie, Kaya, and Samantha are talking 🙂
And oh, dear! Marie-Grace was talking to Saige (who is painting) when she was supposed to be practicing her singing, so Lana told her to stop talking to Saige, Marie-Grace got mad, and now Jess came over and is trying to tell Lana that it’s okay for Marie-Grace to talk to Saige. My goodness!
Josefina and Kirsten were about to bake and are now trying to persuade Rebecca into helping them, too. Addy was talking to Kirsten 🙂
Jenna doing some things at the vanity 🙂
And Kiara and Caroline are chatting 🙂
Do your dolls have a usual thing that happens every day? Like how Caleb and Kendra always fight? What do your dolls like to do?
I was having a heart-attack last night (not literal, I was just SUPER excited)!!! My dad was asleep in the other room and I was trying SO hard not to yell and scream over everything!! LOL! 😛
***Note: Picture credit goes to American Girl***
Okay, so are you all ready to see this awesome release?! Good! Let’s get started! 😀
Rebecca’s Seashore Set $48- I’m sorry, but I don’t really like this. It looks way too modern to me, and those boots literally look like boots that girls wear today. I will say that the chair is cute, though 🙂
Alrighty, ready to move into MAG? Me too!!
Shimmer & Lace Party Dress $30- This is SO CUTE!! I love the color and how lacy it is! 😀
Pretty Pink Tutu Set $28- Again, it’s cute, but I won’t be buying either of them 🙂 You can also buy both of them in a set together for $62 😉
Sunshine Gardening Bench Set $68- This is adorable!! It made me realize that I don’t have a doll that likes gardening yet! Hmm…. I wonder what doll I want could fit that role…. 😛
Now onto the Bitty Babies!
Now for books!
Doll Pets $24.99- THIS LOOKS ADORABLE!! I love this!! 😀
Alright, so that was the entire release (except for the girl’s sized clothes 😉 )!! I am VERY happy with this release!! And A LOT of new items have gone on my wishlist!! I think my favorite item in this release is Samantha’s Gazebo. I can not get over how amazing that is! 😀
What are your thoughts on the release? What was your favorite new item?
P.S. SO sad that Josefina got NOTHING new 🙁
Wowie! I didn’t realize it was time to end this series already! I really hope you all enjoy this part! I got really excited about it and I know you’re excited for it, too and that’s why I’m posting it tonight! Enjoy! 😀
“There he is.” Corinne whispered as softly as possible.
“Hey, Joshua. Still looking for that notepad?” Corinne asked jokingly as we stepped over to his desk.
“Corinne! What are you doing back here? I told you to leave!” Joshua shouted.
I inhaled deeply and said, “No. Not anymore. I was adopted as an infant and now my family is gone.” I explained and turned my head away. I hardly ever talked about my family, and it hurt to mention them.
“Many years ago, in a faraway kingdom, a stable boy fell in love with a princess, and she loved him, too. Later they were married, even though the king and queen did not approve. After a few years of marriage, the stable boy, who was now a prince, had to go away for a long time to battle off their enemies.” Joshua explained, but I wasn’t understanding why he was telling me a fairy tale.
“What on earth does this have to do with answering my question?” I asked, getting frustrated.
He ignored my question and went on, “While the prince was away, the princess gave birth to a newborn girl, but the princess died shortly after her child was born. When the prince rushed back at the news of his wife and newborn daughter, he was informed by the princess’ parents, that his daughter was sent away to an orphanage and they would not tell him where. And because he wasn’t royalty to start with, they had him sent away, never to return. He was no longer a prince.”
“What are you talking about? Do you even grasp how insane you sound?” I shouted.
I’m sure you can all guess that there will be a second season and you are correct! It’ll start VERY soon! 😀
I’ve noticed a few blogs have been taking family photos of their dolls, and I’ve always wanted to do that, but because I have so many, it would take HOURS to get them all ready, so I never did it. But- it is time to stop being lazy, LOL! 😛
Back row, left to right- Addy, Josefina, Felicity, Kirsten, Rebecca, Kanani, Marie-Grace, Caroline, and Saige.
Bottom row, left to right- Beth, Annika, Kendra, Cecile, Caleb, Samantha, Jeremy, Kaya, Mickey, Jess, Minnie, Clara, and Janie
I took a family photo of all of my AG dolls (including my sisters) on Saturday and I think it turned out great! It was so neat to see them all set up together 🙂 I was going to do a family photo that included everyone in my doll family, which would include MyTwinn, Disney Toddler Dolls, and other baby dolls, but I didn’t have room anywhere to get a picture of all of them! So maybe some day I’ll get a family picture of my non-AG dolls 😉
Who is in your American Girl Doll family?
Okay, girls. I have been counting down how much longer until the release ALL DAY!! And around 9:40 my mom said that she read the release was online (but really it wouldn’t be online around 10:00 PM our time), so I RUSHED to the computer and went onto the AG site (I was literally shaking- I was so excited!), and then I counted down the minutes until 10:00- then it was time! I clicked refresh and VOILA! Let’s just say these lyrics “A whole new world! A dazzling place I never knew!” would’ve matched PERFECTLY in the background of me looking at all the new stuff!!!! 😀
Now, after dying for an hour (no joke) I am FINALLY ready to share my thoughts over everything with you!!!
WELCOME BACK SAMANTHA!!! I know, a lot of people don’t like the pink and they think it doesn’t “match” her, but I LOOOVE her new Meet Outfit!! It is SO beautiful and she looks great in it!! 😀 ALSO- it is true- you can buy the Meet Outfits separately for $36.00 AND AG has raised the price of Doll and Book to $115.00- ugh 😕
Samantha’s Frilly Frock is $36 and oh, so cute!! I love that it’s satin and I’m also loving the color combo of pink and purple- my two favorite colors! I also like that they used lavender, since that’s Samantha’s favorite color 🙂
Samantha’s Bicycling Outfit is $34. It’s cute, but I don’t think it’s all that great. 😉
Samantha’s Nightgown is $24 and very cute! I love those little slippers!
Samantha’s Holiday Set is $64 and can I just say that I LOVE it?! I need money!! 😛
Samantha’s Fancy Coat Set is $34 and SO PRETTY!!! I love the black and white and the animal print!!! 😀
Samantha’s Dog, Jip is $22. I like the fluffiness of him, but his face isn’t very cute… 😕
Samantha’s Bedtime Accessories is $44- That bear looks an awful like Bitty Bear…. Ugh, AG….
This set isn’t that great in my opinion, but the music box is cool! I like that it really works! 🙂
Samantha’s Bicycle is $115 and I LOVE it!! I love the colors and just everything about it!! SO cute! 😀
Samantha’s Bed & Bedding is $150 and so GORGEOUS!! 😀
Samantha’s Ice Cream Parlor is $300 and I NEED IT!! It’s SO ADORABLE!! I LOVE the cash register!! I’m dying over this set!!! This is probably my favorite of the entire release!!! 😀
Addy Doll, Book, and Accessories is $134. Addy’s new outfit is SO pretty! I love the dark blue on her! And that little patchwork bag is adorable!!
Addy’s School Outfit is $34. At first I wasn’t sure what I thought about this, but I think it’s really cute!! 😀
Addy’s Lunch Pail is $28. I love that it even has the “love” cookies!!! That’s so adorable!!! 😀
Caroline Doll, Book, and Accessories is $134. I think it’s kinda sad that her outfit didn’t change much 😕
Caroline’s Party Gown is $36 and SO pretty!! Again, I’m loving the satin!
Caroline’s Table & Treats is $150 and reminds me quite a bit of the one from Marie-Grace and Cecile’s Collection…. But- it’s still cute! 😛
Josefina Doll, Book, and Accessories is $134. I really don’t like the blue added into her outfit. And I’m also so sad that she didn’t get anything else new. I feel so bad for her 🙁
Julie Doll, Book, and Accessories is $134. I do not like her new meet outfit at all. The original one was way better! And honestly- those sunglasses make her look weird- in my opinion away 😉 😛
Julie’s Tunic Outfit is $34. The only thing that caught my eye were those heels!! I’ve never seen heels that big for AG dolls before!!
Julie’s Winter Coat & Hat is $34 and I am DYING over this!!!! I really think my dolls need that coat!! 😀
Julie’s Holiday Outfit is $34. I wasn’t very impressed with this outfit… It just didn’t really appeal to me very much 😉
Julie’s Snack Set is $50. I LOVE all of those snacks!! SO CUTE!! 😀
Julie’s Egg Chair Set is $100 and I think it’s adorable!!! And that’s so cool that you can really play music through it!!!
Kaya Doll, Book, and Accessories is $134. Same with Caroline- I think it’s sad that her outfit didn’t really change 🙁
Pow-Wow Hair Set of Today is $18. I’m not too interested in this 😛
Kit Doll, Book, and Accessories is $134. I think her dress cute and it’s definitely better than her original Meet Outfit in my opinion! The main thing I like is the hat 😛
Kit’s Reporter Dress is $38 and I think it’s pretty cute! 🙂
Kit’s Photographer Outfit is $34. I am really in love with that sweater, but I definitely wouldn’t buy the outfit 😉
Kit’s Typewriter Set is $50 and can I just say- YAYAY!!! I’ve missed her old typewriter for such a long time and I’m SO happy that she has one again!!! I’m probably gonna have to buy this someday. I love typewriters!! 😀
Rebecca Doll, Book, and Accessories is $134 and I’m DYING over her new outfit!!! And OMGOSH that HAT!! I need to buy this someday!! 😀
Rebecca’s Holiday Outfit is $34 and again I am DYING!!! That is such a BEAUTIFUL dress!!! 😀
Rebecca’s Teatime Traditions is $68. It’s cute, but that is just way too much money 😛
Rebecca’s Director Set is $75. I LOVE IT!!! That chair is ADORABLE!! And the Megaphone!!
Now, let’s take a look at the Mini Dolls:
The Mini Dolls are $25 and come with a book. I can’t BELIEVE I am about to say this, and it is the first time I’ve ever said it about AG, but I honestly think they look so cheapy. They remind me of the little Isabelle dolls they had in Happy Meals at McDonalds! And I still don’t think their faces cute. I think they’re slightly cuter than the old ones, but if I’m going by quality, I have to say that the old ones were better. 😕
Also, there were a few new books released!
Doll Art Studio is $24.95 and it looks so adorable!! I think this kit is officially on my wants list 😛
I also noticed this which is $9.99
And this which is $24.99. 🙂
So that’s all for the whole new release!! I’ll have to give this release a 9 out of 10 due to some things I didn’t like, such as outfits not being changed, cheapy mini dolls, etc.
However I LOVED this release and I hope you did, too! Be sure to share your thoughts in the comments! I’d love to hear from you! 😀
I have been very uncertain on how I feel towards the new BeForever line. But lately I have been dying for it to get here already!!!
We got an email from American Girl yesterday and it had this picture!! Okay, I just HAVE to buy Samantha’s and Rebecca’s new Meet Outfits!!! They’re SO pretty!!! But I also have to say that I’m SO sad and disappointed that Caroline and Kaya don’t have new outfits. Like that just looks so wrong- if you know what I mean 😛
And now for some exciting news!!! My mom and I are going to the AG store in LA for the BeForever Debut on Thursday!!!! I’m SOOOO EXCITED!!! I’ll be taking TONS of pictures, so you can look forward to that! 😀
How are you feeling about BeForever? Are you planning to go to the store for the Debut?
Oh, my goodness!! Can you believe that we are already stepping into May?? And you know what that means for me? Going to the AG Store in just a couple of weeks!!! YAY! 😀

After we got home from church yesterday and ate lunch I just wanted to relax for awhile. Then it was time to go over my brother in-law’s family’s house. I had such a great time and I got to see my friend Alyssa (you might remember me asking for prayer requests for her when she was in the hospital with bad seizures. Thankfully she is doing a LOT better and it made me really happy!) 😀
First, my girls started out with an Easter Egg Hunt! All of my “kids” didn’t do it, only 6 of them and they were in teams of 3 😉
All the pretty eggs on the lawn 🙂
“Which way should we go first?” Cecile asked excitedly.
“Oh, oh! Let’s get those pretty pink eggs!” Marie-Grace said.
Rebecca went to pick them up and placed them in the basket.
“I think we have enough eggs now. We should let the others get the rest.” Kaya said trying to be fair to her sisters.
“Yeah, that’s a good idea.” Saige replied.
After the egg hunt, they all went inside to join the others.
Marie-Grace counted her eggs and Cecile and Caroline sat with her.
“How many did you guys get?” Caroline asked.
“Five, six and seven! We got seven eggs!” Marie-Grace said with a big smile.
“They collected practically all of the pink eggs. There were hardly any for us!” Kanani said to Jess.
“Well, I know I haven’t been here long, but it seems like pink is Marie-Grace’s favorite color, so I guess it makes sense.” Jess said with a giggle.
Samantha poured herself a cup of tea and said, “Do you like tea, Lissie?”
“Yes, I love tea!” Felicity replied and Samantha poured her a cup.
“C’mon, Kristoff. Let’s get all the cinnamon rolls before the others get a chance to have any!” Eli whispered, but Samantha heard him. “Eli, you two are not eating all of those cinnamon rolls! That is so bad for you!” Samantha scolded.
“How are you doing, Jess? I thought it might be hard for you to celebrate Easter without your family.” Annika said sadly.
“I’m doing okay. Some things have been a little hard, but I’m doing alright.” Jess replied.
“That’s good. And remember, I’m always here if you need to talk to someone.” Annika said kindly.
“Thank you, Annika. I’ll remember that.” Jess smiled. “This family is a lot different than my old one,” Jess thought, “but I think that in time, I’m going to love it here. Thank you, Lord, for blessing me with such an amazing family.”
Alright! You all guessed correctly, I did get the Sweet School Dress! Now as for the doll, Anonymous was the only one who guessed that correctly 🙂
It’s Jess!! She absolutely LOVES this outfit! And I’ll definitely be reviewing it soon, so keep your eyes open for it! 😀
Happy (late) Easter from me and my dolls!!!!
How did you spend your Easter? Did you get any dolly surprises?
