Hi everyone! Happy (late) Valentine’s Day! I hope you all had a great day! 😀
I’m going to show you some pictures I took of my “kids” at their Valentine’s Day Party.
They all had such a fun time together! Every time I walked by the room I heard laughs and giggles! 🙂
“Have you tried the punch, Kanani? It’s really good!” Saige asked her sister.
“No, I haven’t. I’ll have to try some!” Kanani replied.
“Are you going to eat something, Samantha?” Kanani asked.
“Hmm.. I think I’m going to have a slice of that cookie cake!” Samantha said with a smile.
Annika, Marie-Grace, and Cecile were talking together in a corner and Addy went over to see what they were talking about.
“What are you three talking about?” Addy asked sweetly.
“We’re talking about all the amazing songs in Frozen and how we wish we could sing like them!” Marie-Grace replied. Them three are the singers in our family, so they talk about songs from movies a lot. 😉
However, Addy also likes the songs from Frozen, so she decided to join their conversation.
On the other side of the room, Eli started on his second cupcake and Lissie reached for a truffle, but got distracted by what Rebecca was asking Elijah.
“I just realized that I never asked you when your birthday was!” Rebecca said.
“You didn’t? It’s on November 5th.” Eli replied.
Josefina and Caroline were talking together and Kirsten made her way over to the table with a slice of iced lemon pound cake. Yum!
Everyone ate practically all day. Yes, I made an exception. After all, it’s a holiday! 🙂
Then they passed out handmade valentines. And at night they got in their jammies and watched Monster’s University.
They have all been talking about how much fun they had yesterday and how they wish they could do it all the time. I told them that it doesn’t have to be a holiday to have a good time together. It can be any day at all! Remember to enjoy your life with family and friends and make memories that will last forever 🙂
Did you and your dolls celebrate Valentine’s Day?
Hi and Merry Christmas again!!
So, whenever I introduce my “kids” to each other I always line them up or just set them up in some way. Well, today my mom came in my room just as I had finished lining them up. She decided that she had to take a picture because it is just so crazy how many there are.
I counted 11 toddlers and 11 of the 18″. WHOA! Now I have 12 of the toddlers and 12 of the 18″ 😛
If I keep getting dolls, pretty soon they are gonna end up sleeping on the floor! They are all totally squished in their beds right now. Poor little things- LOL!
How many dolls do you have? Where do they sleep?
Felicity was having so much fun with her little brother and sister. Jeremy was doing the Ring Toss, but wasn’t having much luck. Janie and Lissie were cheering him on!
“Yay! Good job, Owmie (Jeremy’s nickname)! You won some candy!” Lissie said.
Josefina and Merida had fun playing the Fishing Game together. And Kirsten helped Bella with the Ball Toss while Addy, Mickey, and Minnie watched Rebecca do the Ring Toss. It was such a fun night and we have a huge bowl full of candy!
Now that Halloween is over, me and the girls are getting extremely excited for Christmas!! Aren’t you? 😀
Halloween day I was super busy getting ALL of my kids in their costumes, doing their hair, etc. Then finally it was time to go the Trunk or Treat at our church!
When we arrived I had a little talk with my girls:
“You may all go off and enjoy the games. And Whoever takes any of the toddlers with them, be sure to hold their hands and keep a good eye on them. Oh! And one last thing, stay where I can see you.”
Caroline and Cecile took Rapunzel, Ellie, and Snow with them to play some games.
“Hey, look! That fishing game looks like fun!” Cecile said.
“Make a wish for a candy flavor NOT an actual candy” Caroline read. “So, make a wish for a candy flavor you like, Cece!”
“Hmm.. I wish for a peanut butter candy!” Cecile said aloud.
“Yum!! It’s a peanut butter snickers!!” Cecile was very excited!
Meanwhile, Annika had her hands full with Caleb and Kendra…
“Now, Caleb, you have to throw the ball through those holes, okay?” Annika tried to explain the game to him.
“No! I kick!” Caleb yelled.
“Heow, Caweb. I do it!” Kendra offered to show Caleb how to do it.
“No, NO! I KICK!” Caleb yelled back.
“No, no, Caweb! THWO! Kendra yelled, she was getting annoyed.
“Kendra, why don’t we let Caleb try the game first, okay?” Annika suggested.
“Yeah! No, Kenwa pway!” Caleb yelled.
“NOOOO, NOOO!!” Kendra screamed as she tackled Caleb.
“NO, NO, KENWA!!”
“NOOO, CAWEB!!” Caleb and Kendra were screaming like crazy!
“CALEB! Get off of her!” Annika said, pulling Caleb off of Kendra.
“Kendra, what were you doing? Why did you start hitting Caleb?” Annika asked firmly and Kendra started to cry. Caleb just stood there, his cheeks red from anger and his hair a mess from fighting.
Annika took Kendra in her arms and calmed her down.
“Now, Kendra all you did was make Caleb angry. And Caleb all you did was make Kendra cry. Can you both say sorry?” Annika asked.
“Owwy, Kenwa..” Caleb said even though he was still mad.
“Owwy, Caweb…” Kendra said, although she was still very upset.
Annika fixed up Caleb’s hair and put on his hat. Then as she was putting on Kendra’s shoe, Kanani, Saige, and Marie-Grace showed up.
“Annika, what happened?” Saige asked.
“Can’t you guess?” Annika joked.
“Caleb and Kendra had a fight?” Kanani guessed.
“Yep!” Annika answered.
“Oh, goodness! Can’t they EVER get along?” Marie-Grace said.
“No, I don’t think so!” Kanani said and they all laughed.
“We’re gonna do the ball toss, you wanna come?” Saige asked.
“No, I don’t think so. That’s what they just fought about.” Annika laughed, “Thanks anyways!”
Saige threw two balls through the holes and won 2 pieces of candy!
“We have SO much candy!” Marie-Grace said.
“I can’t wait to eat it all when we get home!” Kanani joked and the girls giggled.
This is where we’re gonna end Part 1! Look for Part 2 coming tomorrow!
BEHIND THE SCENES:
I brought out ALL of my dolls (except for the babies) today. It took me 5 trips to bring them all out! 😀
It also probably took me a total of 5 hours to get this photostory (including the other parts) made. I hope you all like it so far! 🙂
I love Camp DD’s theme this week, don’t you? With how obssessed I am with Disney (and princesses) I knew this week would be great for me as well.
This post, however is not exactly part of Camp, but the theme gave me the idea! So this post is something that I used my imagination with and pretty much made up- not part of Camp 😉
In honor of the newborn Princess- a Ball was thrown in her honor!
Several guests were invited to share the Royal Family’s special moment.
The orchestra was playing happy music, the guests were dancing, eating, and talking. It was certainly a special night!
Kanani grabbed a plate and tried to decide what to eat, while Josefina grabbed a cookie.
Saige- “I’m not too good at dancing Kirsten, I hope you don’t mind.”
Kirsten- “I don’t mind at al- Ouch!”
Saige- “Oh, I’m sorry!”
Kirsten- “It’s okay- just follow my lead.”
Later on, the guests lined up for a group dance.
They twirled around and switched places to some fast and happy music 🙂
They danced and danced!
The Princess Annika and her younger sister, Princess Caroline watched their guests spin around to the music.
Princess Annika- “Our guests seem to be having a lovely time.”
Princess Caroline- “Yes, indeed! And the Ball Room looks beautiful, does it not?”
Princess Annika- “Yes, it does. Sister, dear, you should go fetch Daisy now. It is nearly time for me to make the introduction.”
Princess Caroline- “Oh, yes, of course!”
Princess Annika- “My people- As your Princess it is my duty to make all announcements and introductions until my mother- the Queen- is able to do so. Now without further ado- please welcome my new baby sister- and your new Princess, Daisy!”
Princess Caroline brought out Princess Daisy. She was a perfect little angel!
Princess Annika and her sister, Caroline, both held their new little sister up together. The guests were thrilled!
Everyone- “Hoorah for Princess Daisy!!!”
Have your dolls ever been a “Princess” before?
Ok, I just have to say that I LOVE this week’s theme at Camp Doll Diaries [http://dolldiaries.com/horse-feeding-fun-for-you-and-your-dolls/]! It’s all about HORSES!!! If you know me really well, then you know that I LOVE horses and that they’re my favorite animal 😀
All of my “daughters” love horses, too, but three of them love them as much as me (which is A LOT!). When they heard what the theme was this week they were so thrilled!
All of the girls in Little Lilacs Cabin had just finished putting on their boots and were chatting away.
Addy- “Girls- May I have your attention, please?”
All of the excited faces turned to Cabin Leader, Addy.
Addy- “Thank you. Now, before we head off to the Stables we have some quick rules to go over. Rule #1: We want you all to have a “buddy”, so get into groups of two, please. Rule #2: When at the stables please be very calm and don’t be afraid. Horses can sense fear and if they do, it might make them a little jittery. Rule #3: Listen closely to what Cabin Leaders Saige and Felicity will be telling you. They will tell you all about the horses and how to care for them. Rule#4: Please control yourself. If one of you girls are anxious to pet the horse when it’s not yet time, please be patient. You will each get a chance to pet it. Is everything clear?”
Everyone- “Yes, Addy!”
Addy- “Good, then let’s head over to the Stables!”
After quite a while they reached the Stables. Saige was there to greet them along with Felicity.
Saige- “Hi girls! Welcome to the Stables! This is the sweet horse we’ll be looking at today. Her name is Penny and she is the perfect horse for any beginner rider. Please gather around and Felicity and I will tell you all you need to know.”
Saige and Felicity told them all about the tack such as- saddles, bridles, bits, horse shoes, and boots. They told them about the care supplies for horses such as all the different types of brushes, curry combs, fly spray, conditioner, and fly masks. They also told them how to treat a horse if they get hurt.
Saige- “And now I need a volunteer to groom Penny.”
Annika, who had never been around a horse before (although she loves them) offered excitedly!
Annika brushed through Penny’s mane until it was all nice and pretty. It was her dream come true to be around a horse 🙂
Felicity- “You’re doing very well, Annika!”
Saige- “She looks beautiful! Nice job!”
Annika- “Thank you!”
Felicity- “Why don’t you give her an apple for being such a good girl?”
Annika gasped- “Can I?”
Felicity- “Of course!”
Annika- “There you go, Penny. That’s a good girl.”
Saige- “Well, who’s ready to saddle up?”
And that is where we end Part 1!
So, how did you like it? Don’t you feel so happy for Annika? It kind of reminds me of myself 🙂
And in case you’re wondering you can see a couple of the things I made. I made some apples out of Model Magic Clay, I used Easter Grass for some hay, and the rest you haven’t seen- yet 😀
I hope you’re all having a great week!
Oh! and one more question- What have your dolls been doing at Camp?
Yesterday I went with my friend, Emma, her sister Kendra, and our moms to the AG Store in LA! Why, you ask? To get my new doll ANNIKA!!!
I’m so excited to share these pictures with all of you! Let’s take a look-
First- here are my dolls all set-up and ready to meet their new sister 🙂
Now- here is the front of the store! So beautiful 🙂
From left to right: My friend Emma, her sister Kendra, and me. We’re so excited!!! 😀
I absolutely adore this display! Could they sell the props? LOL!
Beautiful Caroline <3 By the way- I need that dress!! Hehe!
LOOOVE this! Why, oh, why do they have to sell it all separately??
Part of Caroline’s display-
And the other part of her display 🙂 P.S. Love the Parlor!
In honor of Molly’s retirement we took some pictures of her and her display 😉
This is Molly’s little window scene.

And the other part of her display 😉
I love Molly’s dog! He is so cute!
I NEED this outfit!! I hope I get it for Christmas! 😀
Cute little display 🙂
After seeing this in person I want this dress even more!! It is so soft and pretty!
I also need this! My friend bought it and it looks so cute on Cecile! *Note: My friend bought Cecile this day*
That little polk-a-dot bath robe is really cute! Aw, I love Honey!
I like this dress, but I don’t know if I would want to buy it. The shape seems a little wierd 😉
I really hope to have this set some day! Penny would love a proper home 🙂
Annika wants this outfit 😉
I love that pinata! And Meatloaf is trying to steal the chips- Hehe!
This tent and little set-up is adorable!
Finally!! I found my doll!!!
My mom sneaked this picture of me and my friend with our bags holding our dolls and the stuff we bought 😀
Stay tuned because later I’m posting a photoshoot I did with Annika 😀
It was dark and silent and the audience waited patiently for the performers to go on.
After what seemed like forever their host finally came out-
“Good Evening, Campers! Thank you for joining us tonight. I am your host Felicity and I think it’s time to get started! First we present Kanani Akina doing the Hula Dance!” Felicity finished and everyone clapped.
Kanani danced and danced!
“Are we on next, Kirsten?” Rebecca asked.
“I think so, why are you so nervous? I thought you would love doing this?” Kirsten replied.
“I do, but I’m just not used to it.” Said Rebecca.
Everyone loved Kanani’s dance!
“Hi girls! How did I do?” Kanani asked when she had caught her breath.
“You were wonderful!” said Saige.
“Good job, Kanani!” Kirsten said.
“Were there a lot of people out there?” asked Rebecca.
Although Rebecca had major stage fright- she did great!
Saige showed her painting skills.
“And that’s how you make shadows!” Saige said.
Everyone received an award!
“Saige, you get first prize! Your prize is a Merida Vinylmation from the Disney Store!” Felicity said.
“Kanani, you get second place! Your prize is a brand new Belle Vinylmation from the Disney Store!”
“Kirsten, you get a Cinderella Vinylmation.”
“And Rebecca, you get a Rapunzel Vinylmation.”
“CONGRATULATIONS EVERYONE!!” Felicity shouted and the whole audience cheered and clapped! It was a great Talent Show 🙂
What are your doll’s talents?
Monday morning, June 17th- it was the day that my new daughter, and my kid’s new sister was going to arrive! Yes, indeed- Annika was coming! Until something happened….
“Come on! We have to practice how we’re going to greet Annika when mommy picks her up from the orphanage!” Felicity said.
“Yes, we must rehearse!” Rebecca agreed.
They had just finished *rehearsing* when I (mommy) came in with some sad news.
“Girls, I’m afraid Annika won’t be arriving today.” I said sadly.
“Is everything alright?”
Questions spinned in the air.
“Annika got a cold so she won’t be able to come until next Monday. I know you’re disappointed, but in the meantime maybe we could make something for her. And we should pray that she will heal quickly, too.” I said.
“Yes, we can do that! Let’s make her a ‘Welcome To Your New Home’ card!” Caroline suggested and everyone agreed.
Saige signed last and the card was finished.
Here’s the front-
And the inside which reads:
“Welcome Home, Annika! WE LOVE YOU!
Love, Mommy and your brothers and sisters”
And on the left is all of their signatures.
“There, now it’s ready to be handed to Annika in just one week!” Saige said.
What do you do to welcome your new dolls?
Hi! Today my dolls started camp! This is only part one of 2 or 3 so more will be coming later today (hopefully)!
I’ll be the “narrator” and tell you what they’ve done so far 😉
Felicity, Addy, and Saige are all camp/cabin leaders. Felicity takes the registration forms and helps them check-in.
“Hi! Welcome to Camp! My name is Felicity and I am one of your cabin leaders. Just write your name and cabin name on the blanks to sign-in.” Felicity said.
After they had checked in the campers went to the next table to pick up their visors and name badges.
Felicity started going through the registration forms after her job was done.
“Hi campers! My name is Saige and I am another one of your cabin leaders. I’m going to take you to your cabin now, so pair up with someone (just in case) and follow me!” said Saige.
After walking for a bit they had come to their cabin at last!
Kanani and Caroline had arrived first so they decided to rest for a bit while they waited for the others to arrive.
“Oh, hi! We’re watching cartoons- wanna join us?” Asked Kanani.
“There’s no time for cartoons at present. We have to go over some rules so gather around!” Saige said, getting their attention.
“Rule #1: Stay with at least ONE room mate at all times. Don’t go anywhere alone- there are wild animals out there and the woods are big so it’s very easy to get lost. We have signs all around camp telling you where to go, but they stop at a certain point in the woods, so stay close by.” Saige explained.
“Rule #2: Bed time is at 9:00. If one of us camp leaders or counselors see you outside after that time- you will-well let’s just say you’ll get a talk from one of us. You may get punished depending on what you were doing. However, if you were going to the bathroom then that’s understandable and you won’t get punished.” Saige continued telling and explaining rules to everyone for about 20 more minutes.
“And last, but not least- your cabin code! Each of our cabins have a code that they have to follow. This is ours:
And this is where we end part 1! Tune in later for more Camp FUN! 😀
What did your dolls do on their first day of camp?
