Following my new mom’s directions, I headed out back to introduce myself to a couple of my many new siblings. I saw a boy and a girl playing with a little gray husky puppy. They looked friendly, but I myself have always been a shy girl and always felt a little insecure when meeting new people. I wished that my mom, Jaclynn was here to introduce me, but she had something very important to do, so I was on my own. I took a deep breath in and slowly let it out. Okay, I can do this.
I hesitantly walked over to them, but they were so distracted with the puppy that they didn’t even notice I was there. I had hoped they would notice me so they would start up a conversation, but now it was up to me. What was I to say? I guess that “hi” would work, but I felt like my voice would be so soft that they wouldn’t hear me, so instead I cleared my throat to get their attention.
They quickly looked my way, their faces very confused. The puppy however, seemed delighted to see me and started running over to me. The girl called out, “Pepper! Come here!”, but he didn’t listen. He kept right on running until he reached-
-my feet. His tiny tongue tickled so much as he licked away at my toes, I couldn’t help but giggle.
I reached down and gave his ear a little scratch.
“He really likes you!” The girl said kindly and I smiled. “So, who are you?” The boy inquired, still seeming confused.
“I’m Jocelyn. I’m your new sister…” I replied questioningly. I didn’t understand why they were so confused. I thought Jaclynn would have told them I was coming…
The boy and girl looked at each other with surprise. “I can’t believe mommy didn’t tell us!” The girl said in disbelief.
They both came closer and the girl said, “My name is Kiara and this is Dallas.”
“And that’s Pepper.” Dallas announced as he gestured to the little puppy resting by my feet.
“I’m sorry if we seemed a little rude. We were just really caught off guard when you told us you were our sister.” Kiara apologized.
“Oh, it’s okay! I understand.” I assured her.
“So how old are you?” Dallas questioned.
“Fifteen.” I replied.
“You seem to have a really nice way with animals. Do you have a pet?” Kiara inquired.
“No, I don’t, but I have always wanted a dog and a horse!” I said dreamily.
Kiara gasped. “We have to have Lissie, Saige, and Kaya show her the horses!” She exclaimed, looking at Dallas with a huge smile on her face.
“You have horses?!” I asked excitedly and probably a little too loudly. This place just suddenly got amazing!
“Yeah! We have two horses and three foals!” Kiara said, smiling broadly.
“Oh, my gosh!! FOALS?!” I squealed.
I eagerly followed Dallas into the house, with Kiara and Pepper not far behind.
Horses? Foals?! Even with how shy I am, my excitement over something can really help me feel so comfortable around people. And Dallas and Kiara were really nice, so I was sure that if the others were anything like them, I was going to absolutely love it here.

Hey guys! I hope you’re having a great week so far I was very busy today, but this evening I looked outside and decided that the lighting was great for a photoshoot, so I grabbed Julie and headed outside to take some pictures. I hope you like them! I am personally very fond of them
This is my other favorite picture! 😀
That’s the end of this shoot! I hope you all enjoyed them!
Do you think Julie makes a good colonial girl?
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?
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?
YAY! Sadie’s Hope has started!! I was going to post the first part, but then we decided that Emma should post it, so be sure to go read the first part on her blog BEFORE reading this part
Sadie hesitantly followed her. Amy led her outside and down a few blocks until they reached a little shack, from which Sadie could hear lots of loud voices.
Opening the door, Amy gestured to the suddenly silent group of kids.
“Hey, Amy, who’s this?” A dark haired girl inquired.
“This is Sadie-” Amy paused to remember her last name, but soon remembered they hadn’t been properly introduced, “What’s your last name?” Amy questioned. “Darrell.”
Amy nodded her head in acknowledgement and said, “Sadie, these are some friends of mine. We’re a small group of kids who try to help other orphan children who have no home.”
Amy continued and listed their names, “This is Viveca,” Amy gestured to the black haired girl,
“and this is Gretta,” She pointed to the African American,
“and this is Mark.” Amy said and the boy nodded. “What’s she doing here, Amy?” Mark asked, sounding a little annoyed.
“She’s a new–” Amy paused and searched for the right word, “Friend. We are going to help her.”
“We? Nah, I don’t think so.” Mark refused.
“Mark!” Amy shouted.
“Honestly, Mark, why even be in the group if you don’t wanna help out another orphan kid?” Viveca questioned with annoyance. Mark rolled his eyes. Sadie knew there was going to be a lot of tension between Mark and her, if he was going to help.
“What do you even want our help with?” Mark asked, eyes suspicious.
“I need to get my little brother out of the orphanage.” Sadie said.
“Oh, you’re lucky he’s even alive. You know those orphanages are teeming with deadly diseases.” Mark smirked. Sadie felt her face grow hot, and she pursed her lips together to keep from saying anything rude back at him.
“Mark! Really, could you just quit it!” Gretta shouted.
Mark could tell that Sadie was upset, so he asked, “Your brother must feel pretty bad to have a sister like you – you abandoned him, didn’t you?”
Sadie looked at him with wide eyes, trying to hold back her guilt.
Mark snickered and said, “I knew it.”
Sadie looked down, her cheeks hot. “Mark Campbell, if you say one more unkind word to Sadie, I will take away your food for the week!” Amy shouted, her face burning with anger. Mark frowned, but said no more.
Amy glanced over at Sadie, who’s eyes looked all teary. “Hey, don’t let him bother you. He’s always saying something mean to somebody.” Amy comforted silently.
Sadie looked away, embarrassed that she was letting him get to her. “Yeah, um, when can we go and get him out?” Sadie asked.
“Well, we will have to make a plan first. Anyone got any ideas?” Amy inquired.
“Maybe we,” Gretta pointed to her and Mark, “can distract the lady at the front desk while you two sneak in,” She pointed at Sadie and Amy, “and grab your brother?”
“And what about me?” Viveca asked, feeling a little left out.
“Oh, um, you can come with us to distract the lady, you’re good at coming up with lies!” Gretta added.
Viveca smiled, “Alright, that sounds good to me!”
“Okay! Everything sounds great! We can go as soon as you want, Sadie.” Amy said.
“Well, then, let’s leave now!” Sadie said, quite determined to get her brother back.
“Oh, for a second there I thought you were going to leave him in the orphanage for a couple other days.” Mark grinned devilishly.
Sadie flashed Mark a dirty look and was just about to say something back, when Viveca intervened-
“WELL! We should really get on our way, shall we?” Viveca asked Amy.
“Yes, let’s get going!” Amy agreed.
Mark laughed and followed the girls out the door.
And that concludes this part!! Emma and I hope you liked it! 😀
The next part will be posted on Emma’s blog
To my surprise, many of the people believed I was the lost princess, and the next morning, several of them turned out in front of the palace yelling “We want Allie!” “Give us our rightful queen!” “Allie! Allie!”
“Stewardess, you see who the people want! Don’t you want to give them who they are asking for?” I shouted, so she could hear me over the people’s loud voices.
The stewardess looked on at the people, her eyes wide. She clearly didn’t know how to respond to this.
“I don’t care who they want! You have no proof that you are the lost princess!” The stewardess shouted back.
“Actually, I do. You do know about the royal birthmark, don’t you?” I asked.
“Yes, of course! What of it?” She asked, sticking her nose into the air.
I climbed up the wall and pulled my hair out of the way. “Look at my neck.” I told her, and when she did, her eyes grew wide again.
“This is ridiculous! It doesn’t mean anything! You could have just put a mark on your neck!” She yelled.
“You’ll have to do something far greater in order for me to believe you are the princess. Tell me what your name was when you born!” She demanded.
I froze. I hadn’t even known I was given a name when I was born! The only name I’d ever known was, Allie.
“Ah ha! I knew you weren’t the princess!” She yelled and walked away.
I slowly turned my head to the crowd. “Why wouldn’t Josh have told me my real name?” I wondered.
Corinne and Monica looked at me, their faces bewildered.
I came down and asked, “Corinne, do you remember my dad saying anything about my real name?”
“No, I don’t think he mentioned it.” She replied.
“I thought so.” I sighed.
“Well, maybe he doesn’t even know! Maybe your mother died before she had a chance to tell him!” Monica suggested.
“Yeah, that would make sense. My mom died shortly after I was born and my dad wasn’t home.” I said. Then I looked around for Adella. “I’m gonna see if Adella knows anything about my real name.” I said.
“Adella, do you know what name I was given when I was born?” I inquired.
“No, I’m afraid not. But perhaps you could check the library! There are many books in there about the kingdom’s history that I bet even the stewardess doesn’t know about.” Adella suggested with a smile.
That concludes this part! Look for the GRAND FINALE coming next!! 😀
I thought this shot would look great in sepia, what do you think?
This is one of my favorites!
I think she looks like such a prairie girl in this picture!
Now Kirsten and “I bid you all a very fond farewell”, until my next post! 😀
Have a wonderful day!
Hey everyone! In all the business of preparing to go to a friend’s wedding today, I thought I’d take advantage of the free time I have right now and make a post for you all So here is Dallas’ photoshoot! 😀 Oh, and about the title, you’ll understand it more when I go on with the post LOL! 😛
Doesn’t he look so cute in the red plaid shirt? 😀
I was kinda scared taking pics in this area. It felt so wild and I kept freaking out that there were raccoons or possums or something in that huge bush back there. That’s why there are only 2 pics in this spot LOL! 😛
I was scared being by the wood pile, too! There were so many webs so I was scared of there being black widows *shudder* 😛
I seriously loved this tree!! 😀
I thought I’d get a together shot of Dallas and Julie. They look so cute! 😀
Well, that’s the end of this post! I will have Kirsten’s photoshoot at the farm up soon!
Oh! Some more of my scaredy-ness, there was this beautiful area of the farm with an awesome tree and I was dying to take pics over there, but…… There were MILLIONS OF CROWS AND A ROOSTER!! I felt like I was gonna be attacked!! Okay, there weren’t literally millions, but a LOT! I’m sure you can tell that I don’t do well with bugs or strange animals 😛
Which picture did you like best?
To see the previous part, just scroll down a post
As we walked through the small village, a little girl with red pigtails came up to me. “Excuse me, can you help us?” The little girl asked softly and shyly. I looked around for a mother or a father, but there was no one around. “Help you with what?” I asked kindly.
Then another little girl with big blue eyes came up beside the other girl and stared up at me.
“Where are your parents?” I inquired.
The two girls glanced at each other with sadness behind their eyes. I wanted to help them, but I couldn’t if they weren’t willing to be open with me.
A young lady began walking by us and I stopped her. “Excuse me, miss, do you know these children and where they live?” I asked her.
The lady looked at the children with pity and then back at me. “They’re orphans. They have no home.” She whispered.
My heart ached for these kids. They were so young and sweet, I couldn’t imagine them living on the streets. “There isn’t an orphanage here?” I inquired.
“No. The stewardess doesn’t want to spend the money on building one. She doesn’t care about anyone or anything, except for money. They are only a couple of the orphans here, there are many more.” The lady replied.
“Well, can’t the people here pitch in some money to build one?” Monica suggested.
“Yeah, or even, why doesn’t anyone give them a place to live for now?” Corinne asked.
“No one can afford anything like that. The taxes here are sky high. Folks around here barely have enough money to buy supper for the table.” The lady explained.
Another lady walked by us and stopped, gazing directly at me. “How dare you wear clothes like that here! This is absolutely inconceivable!” The woman shouted. Then Corinne mouthed the words “You should’ve worn the dress.” at me. I just sighed and shrugged it off.
“I’ve never seen you here before. Who are you?” The woman asked with suspicion.
“Y- you’re the lost princess?” The other young lady stammered.
“Yes, I am. And I want to help restore the peace and happiness of this kingdom.” I stated with a smile.
The other woman laughed and said, “Good luck with that, dearie. The palace guards wouldn’t even let you enter the palace. And even if they did, the stewardess would deny you as the lost princess.”
“Yes, I will do everything I can.” I replied boldly.
She gave me a hopeful smile and said, “Then go. The sooner this kingdom is restored, the better.”
As I was walking past her, she stopped me. “I have to tell you that the stewardess is insanely stubborn and obsessed with ruling. She will not easily give up the throne to you.” She warned.
“Whether it’s easy or not, really doesn’t matter, because I am taking back the throne no matter what. But thank you for the warning, miss.” I said gratefully.
That’s the end of this part! Next part coming soon! 😀
“Well, I’m gonna go get a cupcake.” Kristoff said, raising to his feet.
“So, do you think Rebecca’s petition worked?” Annika asked her sister.
“Mommy definitely seemed to be considering the idea when we gave it to her. I really hope she listens to it, though! It would be so good for Eli, and Kristoff, too!” Jess said hopefully and Annika nodded her head.
“Kristoff I already told you, ask mommy if you can have a third cupcake and then I’ll give you one.” Jess told her little brother. “But, she’s probably busy!” Kristoff protested. “Kristoff, just go ask her!” Jess ordered.
“What’s goin’ on?” Eli asked Annika who shrugged her shoulders. She was just as clueless as he was.
After a few minutes, Riven-Delle came in the room with a huge smile on her face. “Annika, Jess! It worked! The petition we all signed, you know? Mommy listened to it!” Riven-Delle said so quickly that it was hard for Annika and Jess to understand what was going on.
“Oh, my gosh!! A new brother AND sister?! We expected a brother, but oh my, what a surprise to get another sister, too!!” Annika squealed. “My name is Annika, and this is Elijah, but we call him Eli, and there’s Kristoff and Jess.” Annika continued, pointing to each one.
“It’s nice to meet you! I’m Julie and I’m 12. I heard about the petition you all signed for mommy to get Eli another brother. That was really nice of you guys!” Julie said with a smile. Eli smiled broadly in shock when he heard this. Only a few weeks ago, Eli had been wanting a brother more his own age. He had told Riven-Delle about it, so he guessed that she must have told everyone else. He was so blown away and extremely appreciative to all his sisters.
“Hey, Eli! Hi Kristoff! You already know this, but my name is Dallas. I’m 10.” Dallas introduced himself to his new brothers.
“Hi.” Kristoff said shyly.
“I love video games! Hey, lemme show you my little bedroom corner, as I like to call it. You’ll probably be sharing with me now!” Eli said excitedly.
“So where do you come from, Julie?” Annika asked her new sister. “I lived at an orphanage in San Francisco. Dallas was there too!” Julie replied.
“Oh, how magnifique (mah-nyee-feek)! I’ve always wanted to visit San Francisco! Have you gone across the bridge?” Riven-Delle wondered.
“Oh, yeah! I’ve gone across the bridge a few times!” Julie said with a smile. She was happy that someone was interested in what she had to tell about San Francisco.
“So, how did mommy come to adopt you?” Jess asked.
Julie smiled and said, “Well, as she was waiting to meet with Dallas, I was sitting right next to her, waiting to meet some other people who wanted to adopt me, but that didn’t end up working out. Anyways, her and I were talking a lot, and well, we just felt a special connection. So after she had spoken with Dallas, she talked to me some more, and asked if I’d like to come live with her. And I agreed whole-heartedly!” Annika sighed. “That is so sweet! I’m so glad you came to live with us, Julie!”
Riven-Delle placed her arm around Julie and said, “I am, too! Well, we should all go in the living room with the others and get to know Julie and Dallas a little
EEEEEE!!! I LOVE JULIE SO MUCH!! She arrived today and I am DYING!! I bought her when she went on sale for $55 with her pajamas!!! I just love her so much!!! 😀
Speaking of Dallas, here he is!! My parents got me a used Molly for my birthday so I could change her into a custom boy doll!! I think he’s so cute! 😀
Isn’t he so cute?! I just love him! Oh, and his middle name is Peter And do you know what this means?!?! NOW I CAN MAKE MY PIRATE SERIES!!!! EEEEEE!!! 😀
Do you have Julie or a custom boy doll?
