Day 13 – Meaning behind blog name:
Well, this is already explained, but I guess I’ll say it again ;D Around the time I started this blog I was pretty obsessed with Little House On The Prairie. I remember going over some names for my blog with my mom for a while and she suggested Little House of American Girl. Naturally I really liked it and it just made sense with my situation, too – I had a small bedroom with a lot of American Girl dolls! 😀
So, that’s the meaning behind my blog name! Here’s a few pictures since this post was so short and most all of you probably knew all that already LOL!
Oh. My. Gosh. This is my first photoshoot of Marie-Grace!!!
And let me just say that….
….she is SO PHOTOGENIC!!!!
I think this is my favorite picture! 😀
Aaaaaahhh….. She’s so pretty! I think I just found a new love in Marie-Grace! Not that I’ve never stopped loving her, but just that I’m realizing how pretty she is again – if you know what I mean ;D
I hope you enjoyed the photoshoot! I really just wanna take more pics, but it’s really hot outside (102!!) and when I was gonna go to another area in our yard I saw huge webs, so I decided to come in 😛
Oh! And I just wanted to give a little reminder that I posted the next part of Sadie’s Hope a couple days ago, so be sure to check that out! 🙂
Talk to you tomorrow!
YAY! It’s here!! If you haven’t seen the last part, or perhaps just forgot what happened, check it out by clicking here 🙂
Alrighty, you all caught up? Great! Let’s get started! 😀
The woman dragged them down to the basement.
“I have something planned for the two of you. You shall never see each other again!” The lady shouted with an evil look on her face.
She shoved them to the floor, hurried out of the empty room, and locked the door behind her.
Sadie ran to the door and began pounding on it. “Let us out!!” Sadie screamed, but Amy came up to her and touched her shoulder.
Sadie flinched at the touch of Amy’s hand and cried, “I can’t be stuck in here again!” Amy and Sadie stood there in silence.
“You’ve been down here before?” Amy inquired with a sympathetic look.
Sadie nodded, trying to hold back her tears.
“I’m so sorry, Sadie.” Amy said softly, not really knowing what to say.
“HOW DARE MARK!” Sadie shouted, and banged against the door again.
“I know, it was wrong of him.” Amy said calmly.
“HOW CAN YOU BE SO CALM!” Sadie cried, tears streaming down her cheeks.
“Sadie, believe me, I’m upset, too, but right now isn’t the time to be playing the blame game. Let’s just try to think of a way out of here.” Amy advised.
“Fine.” Sadie replied, but then the door shook and it opened.
Sadie jerked forward, but Amy grabbed her arm and held her back.
The woman appeared in the doorway with two guards. “That one, take her to the train station along with the others.” The lady ordered, pointing at Sadie –
– and one of the guards grabbed her.
DUN DUN DUUUN!
Emma will be posting the next part on her blog soon! 😀
“Wow, you’re already ready?” Felicity asked with a chuckle. Kaya grinned and said, “Yes, I’m sorry I took so long. I just wanted to make sure Steps High was thoroughly groomed first.” Felicity smiled playfully. “It’s okay, I’m used to it.” She teased.
The two sisters walked their horses through the small field and chatted away.
“Just think, as soon as Luthien, Eowyn, and Sparks Flying get old enough to ride, we can go riding with Saige, Annika, and Jocelyn!” Kaya said excitedly. She always loved spending time with her sisters outdoors.
“FOR NARNIA!” Felicity shouted and Kaya laughed. “What is that?” She inquired. Felicity gasped. “We haven’t watched Narnia together yet, have we?” She asked in disbelief.
“No…?” Kaya said questioningly, wondering what other movie she was going to be getting herself into.
Kaya and Felicity had a great time that afternoon with their very best friends – their horses.
Hi! Oh, my goodness, it was SO hot outside when I took these pictures! And windy, so it was hard to balance Kaya on her horse without a saddle LOL! I was disappointed when I went outside and realized the lighting wasn’t that great for taking pictures, and then when I came inside I looked out the window and the whole area I was taking pictures in got shaded…. 😕
Okay, so a bit of exciting news……. ELLA COMES HOME ON SATURDAY!! YAY!!! 😀 There will definitely be a post about her on that day! 😉
OH! One more thing! I added a new page called “Meet Jaclynn”, so be sure to head over there and check it out! 🙂
Who is your doll’s best friend?
Hey everyone! This morning the weather was seriously so amazing, so I just had to take some pictures and I thought a photoshoot with two dolls would be fun 🙂
Aren’t they so cute?! 😀
Oh, my goodness, she is SO CUTE!!! LOL!
LOL! I went inside for a minute cause my mom was getting a phone call and when I came back out, they just looked so tiny and adorable! 😀
Okay, I’m loving this picture <3
Now for some edited pics! 😀
First off, get comfortable. Wear some soft, comfy pants and a t-shirt. Put on a hairstyle that makes you feel ready to work! Some people like to just stay in their pj’s all day when they write and leave their hair down, but I like to get dressed and do my hair, so I feel ready to tackle my story!
Next, always have a water bottle or a glass of water near you. If you plan to sit down for a few hours and write, you’ll tend to get thirsty, so water is always a good thing to have with you 🙂
If you tend to get distracted easily, shut the door so you feel alone and can concentrate more easily on your work.
Now you’re ready to write! Some people do their writing on paper, but I like to do mine on the computer. It goes faster for me and it’s much easier to correct any mistakes 🙂
Remember, if you hit a dead end and you just can’t seem to push through the wall, maybe it’s time to take a break for a while. Usually when that happens to me, I take it as a sign that I need to stop for the day and think on it some more. If you force it too much, you may end up getting frustrated and stop writing for a week (maybe more).
Well, I hope these tips helped you! I’m gonna get started on my writing now, so maybe I’ll “see” you again soon! Bye for now! 🙂
Hey, it’s Jaclynn now! I’m having a writing day myself and I thought I’d let you all know something…..
….. I’m working on writing the FINALE of my pirate stories!!! NOOOO!!! Oh, I’m going to die when it all ends. Probably cry. I’ll definitely miss writing them, but I’m excited to see how you will all like them and I hope that I can continue to write different stories that you’ll love just as much 🙂
Do you or your dolls enjoy writing?
It was my mom’s birthday, just a couple days after we had been offered the puppy and Mom and I were getting anxious for my dad’s reply. We wondered if maybe he would say yes today, since it’s my mom’s birthday…
My mom was sitting at the dining table, scrolling through Facebook on her phone and drinking her caramel coffee.
I walked in after catching up on some blogs I follow on the computer and said, “I wonder if daddy’s gonna say yes today…”
Mom looked at me and lightly shrugged her shoulders. “I don’t know.” She replied. We chatted a while longer and a text message popped up on my mom’s phone from my dad. My heart started to race. He was never on his phone at work, only when he called my mom at lunch. Maybe he was just saying “Happy Birthday”, but my hopes were raised.
I watched anxiously as my mom read her text and a smile spread across her face and her fingers began typing back.
“What did he say?” I asked with a heart full of hope.
My mom smiled at me and said, “He said ‘Have decided to let you have the puppy. Happy Birthday, I love you!'”
I started to cry and squealed and I gave my mom a huge hug. I couldn’t believe he actually said yes! And that this was even real! We were getting a puppy!!
“Are you going to tell everybody today?” I inquired. “Yeah, I think so! Probably at dinner.” She replied. “I wonder how Dallas will take it…” I said, thinking about my brother who had just lost his dog almost a year ago. I know it still hurt him, so I wondered how he would feel about having another dog around.
“He’ll probably be how I was. Maybe a little sad at first, but then happy to have a puppy around again.” Mom replied.
I nodded my head and smiled broadly. “I can’t believe we’re getting a puppy!!”
This concludes part 2! Look for part 3 coming soon! 🙂
P.S. The next photostory to be up will be the next part of Sadie’s Hope! 🙂
Hey everyone! Today I thought I’d brave the heat and take a photoshoot of the beautiful Rebecca for you all! She’s been dressed and ready for a photoshoot for like two weeks now… I probably would’ve done it last week, but my gramma was visiting, so I didn’t have much of a chance to post 😉
So here are the pictures!
She’s so pretty!!! OH MY GOSH!! LOL!
I am in love with these stick on earrings!
Isn’t she so beautiful?! I seriously love her in Saige’s Sparkle Dress, too! 😀
I hope you enjoyed the pictures! I loved taking them and making this post! I’m listening to Disney songs as I type this, so that just makes everything fun! 😀
Oh and very important for those of you who have been waiting- Sadie’s Hope Part 3 was posted on Emma’s blog, so make sure you go read it! 🙂
What are your thoughts on Rebecca?
“Don’t they look so good? That long one…. And-and the pink…. OOOH! AND THE CHOCOLATE!! Sorry, I’ve had a lot of treats today….”
Hi, it’s Jaclynn now! Oh, my gosh, it’s National Donut Day and Krispy Kreme is giving away free donuts and I’m not eating one?? This is just sad. LOL!
Do you love donuts? What’s your favorite kind or place to buy donuts?
So yesterday I was taking pictures for a photostory, but then I got interrupted and got totally out of the mood, so that didn’t end up happening, but I did finally change Caroline’s outfit!! Literally, you don’t even wanna know how long some of my dolls stay in the same outfit and hairstyle. We’re talking MONTHS! It is so sad! Caroline was still wearing the Elsa Frozen Fever Dress I made from when I first made it! Isn’t that awful? So I fell in love with Caroline again (does that ever happen to you? LOL!) and decided she needed a little photoshoot! 🙂
Caroline looks just beautiful in the Tropical Bloom outfit! The colors are great for her!
Her eyes and shirt are almost a perfect match in color! I was kinda dying at how amazing they went together. I was FaceTime-ing Emma when I changed her and every few minutes I’d pick up Caroline and say, “Oh my gosh! I just wanna take pics of her!” LOL!
Isn’t her hair so pretty? Even if it isn’t the same hair she had when I first got her, I think it’s still gorgeous! 🙂
Caroline is seriously so gorgeous! I can’t believe she’s retiring so soon 🙁
Do you ever leave your dolls in the same outfit for months? Are you planning on getting Caroline before she retires?
Apparently I am in a crazy weird mood today, because this post was just gonna be a normal story of Jane going to the doctor, but it turned into something MUCH more than that! Jane will take it from here 🙂
I walked up to the front desk at the doctor’s office to sign in for my annual checkup. The lady appeared to be busy and I don’t think she noticed I was there, so I cleared my throat to get her attention.
“Oh, hello! Do you have an appointment?” The lady asked, looking up from her work.
“Yes, it’s with Dr. Albright for 2 o’clock.” I replied.
“Ah, yes! Jane Potter! Could you just fill out this form for me, please?” She asked as she handed me a form and a pencil. I filled out all my information then took my seat in the waiting area until finally the doctor called my name.
“Jane!” She called, pushing aside the curtain, and I went to her.
“Hey what are you guys doing?” Eli asked.
“Oh, we’re playing doctor.” I answered as I turned to face him.
“Cool! I’ll be the doctor!” He said as he entered the room. Julie glanced at me with that “Oh boy” look and I tried not to smile.
“Have a seat, please!” He said in a British accent and I did as I was told.
“Now, I will listen to your heartbeat.” He said as he held a calculator up to my heart (It’s supposed to be a stethoscope. We didn’t have one, so we had to use what we had on hand 😉 ).
Eli suddenly gasped very dramatically. “OH NO!!! NURSE!! OUR PATIENT IS DYING!!!” Eli shouted with his hands in the air.
“Wait, what?!” Julie shouted back in confusion.
“SEND FOR THE INVISIBLE MONKEYS!!” Eli cried.
“Invisible monkeys?” I asked with a giggle. I didn’t know where this was going!
“So you know, don’t you?!” Eli inquired and at first I just stared at him, but then I flashed him a playful grin.
“Yes! Yes, I am beginning to feel it in my heart!” I said as I lied down dramatically. Eli laughed at my quote. He’s such a LOTR fan, just like me. “There is only one thing that can save me!” I continued.
“What is it?!” Eli asked frantically.
“Waffles…” I whispered. Inside I was trying so hard not to laugh at how ridiculous this was!
“What is going on?” Julie asked in bewilderment. I don’t think she was all that good at playing games with guys yet, otherwise she would know that things get insane when a boy gets involved with your story.
“It’s improv, Jules! Just go along with it and be crazy and random!” I whispered. “Ooooh…” She said.
Julie leaned over the table and pretended to cry. “WE. HAVE. NO MORE WAFFLES!!!” She cried.
“Then there is only one more thing to do!” Eli said as he stood on the examining table.
“WHAT IS IT?! I’ll do ANYTHING!!” Julie cried.
“You must sing about waffles!” Eli said to me. “Do you think it will work?” I asked with worry. “It’s worth a try!” He said with determination. “Alright. Waaaafflessss! I love them buuuuutteryyyy! And with syyyyrrruuuup!” I sang and Julie was busting up!
All of a sudden, Caleb walked in the room! “Hi!” He said with a giggle. My guess is that he was laughing at how silly we all looked and sounded. “OH NO!! HE’S THE ONE THAT STOLE ALL THE WAFFLES!!” Julie cried as she climbed on top of the table to avoid him.
“I cookie!” He said. That’s his way of saying that he wants a cookie.
“Now he wants our cookies!!! STAY AWAY!!” Eli said and we all stood and tried to keep our distance from the little “food monster” as I called him.
So that is what my day consisted of! We ended up having to journey half way across the world to find waffles and when we did, I ate them and was healed. Some more of the kids had started playing with us too and we all sang an ending song at the end to close our game. We were all singing so loud and nothing matched or made sense. It was so awesome! It just goes to show that sometimes things don’t always have to make sense when you play, because you can have a ton of fun just being crazy and random with your friends or siblings 🙂
I hope you enjoyed this random post! Bye for now!
