Kaya got out of bed early in the morning, just as she always did, but once again she saw Jenna was up before her.
Jenna was just starting to brush her out. “Ouch!” She whispered as she brushed through a knot.
“Good monring, Jenna. What are you doing up so early again? Are you not sleeping well?” Kaya asked in a soft whisper. It was very early in the morning and she didn’t want to wake anybody up. “Oh, good morning, Kaya! I’ve been sleepin’ fine. The reason I’ve been getting up so early is because back at the orphanage in Ireland, they would have us get up very early to do our chores. It’s just a habit for me.” Jenna replied in her thick Irish accent.
“What about you? Do you always get up this early, too?” Jenna asked.
“Yes. Where I come from, I had to get up early, too.” Kaya replied.
“Well, I’m gonna go check on the horses now.” Kaya said.
“Alrighty then! I’ll just continue doin’ me hair.” Jenna put her hand over her mouth and giggled as she realized that she had spoken a little too loudly. 🙂
So, the last gift I got were the Petals and Plaid PJ’s for Jenna! They’re so adorable!!! 😀
The shirt is so cute and I love how it looks like she’s wearing a tank top under it, but she really isn’t 🙂
The pants have a super cute print and are so silky! I also love the slippers!! The fur around the edge is just adorable!! They are super easy to get on, too! 🙂
I rate this outfit a 10 out of 10! Jenna looks SO cute in these PJ’s and I’m so glad I got them for her! 😀
Do any of your dolls have accents?
The other day, I got an OG outfit and I knew that the doll to wear it first would have to be Samantha! A few of the pictures are edited, but most of them aren’t 🙂
Samantha looks so pretty in that lace coat!
I LOVE the headband that comes with this outfit!! I am a big headband girl 😀
She’s so CUTE!!
I think it rained the other day without me knowing it. I was very surprised to see wetness 😛
I really like this one 🙂
Isn’t the sky so beautiful?! I was so loving the clouds!! 😀
Well’p, that’s all for today! Look out for a post of my dolls decorating, coming soon! 🙂
Have your dolls decorated for Christmas? I’m running late this year. Five days until Christmas and I still haven’t decorated my bedroom! Last year I decorated before Thanksgiving! 😛
“Hey, Caroline! What’s all this?” Saige asked as she entered the kitchen.
“YAY! I told myself that the first one to enter the kitchen would get to help me, and it looks like you’re the winner!” Caroline said excitedly.
“To help you do what?” Saige asked, still confused.
Caroline grinned and said, “Do you wanna build a gingerbread house?” Saige laughed at her sister’s Frozen reference and said, “Okay!”
Just as Saige reached for a gumdrop Caroline yelled-
“WAIT! You have to put on an apron!” Saige was so startled that she jumped! “Why?” She asked breathlessly. “Because whenever you cook in the kitchen you should wear an apron! Plus, they’re just fun to wear.” Caroline smiled.
So, Saige grabbed the apron and tied it on.
“Now we’re ready to get started!” Caroline exclaimed.
Saige and Caroline worked for a long time on their gingerbread house until….
They were at their last two gumdrops, so they each put one on at the same time.
Then they stood back and admired their work. “It’s so beautiful! I’m glad I was the one who got to do this with you, Caroline. It was a lot of fun!” Saige said with a smile.
“It sure was!” Caroline smiled back.
I hope you enjoyed the story! My craft fair ended yesterday, so there will be a post up about that soon! 🙂
Have you ever made a gingerbread house?
I have just realized, that I have only done this game one time on my blog! And it’s such a fun game to play, so I thought that we needed to do it again 🙂
They both honestly look so cute, that I don’t think I could pick! I hope you have fun voting! I will post the winner next Saturday 🙂
Have a nice rest of your day!
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?
Yes, it’s finally here! If you would like to be refreshed by what is going on- go read the previous parts by clicking here 🙂
I went on my way to seek out Aldera, the woman who had cursed Eiden when he was little. And then I found her, smack in the middle of nowhere. “Why, Elexa, long time no see. Last I saw you, you were only 5 years old.” Aldera greeted.
“Enough of the fake kindness, Aldera, I need to speak with you, about Eiden…” I finished softly.
Aldera’s face turned cold. “I can’t bring him back, dear, if that’s what you want.”
“Oh, I think you can. Please, I already caused my father’s death, I don’t want to be responsible for Eiden’s, too!” I cried. Aldera smirked and then laughed. “You foolish girl! Your brother isn’t dead, he’s asleep and that curse can never be broken.” I looked at her in surprise. “But, if you made the curse, can’t you undo it?” I asked.
“I could, but I don’t want to. Your brother destroyed my castle and that took away almost all of my powers! If I were ever to break that curse, I would need to receive something very special and useful to me in return. Which considering why you ran away, I know you won’t give that.” Aldera stated.
“No, I will! I’ll give you anything you want!” I said hopefully.
A little grin spread across Aldera’s face. “Anything?” She asked.
“Anything. All I want is my brother back. What do you want?” I inquired.
“I want- your powers.” Aldera said while smiling.
“Wh- what do you want with my powers?” I asked.
Aldera stepped more closely to me and whispered, “You’ve heard the tale of Snow White, of course. Well that queen wanted to be the fairest of them all, but I want to be the most powerful of them all. If you give me your powers, I will bring your brother back.” I thought hard before replying then asked, “No one will get hurt, will they?” Aldera looked surprised and said, “Why, of course not! I would never dream of it! Do we have a deal?” What I didn’t notice was that she was crossing her fingers behind her back.
I held out my hands and sighed. “Deal.”
And with a wide grin, Aldera removed my powers.
When they were removed, I felt weak, and it caused me to fall to the floor.
“Oh, don’t worry. That’s bound to happen after having your powers removed. You’ll wake up, just as soon as I get rid of you.” She said and with a wave of her wrist-
-I was transported back to my ice palace.
“Eiden!” I yelled as I noticed him still lying on the floor.
“Eiden, are you alright? Wake up!” I said as I shook his shoulder.
“Elexa? Wh- what happened?” Eiden asked as he began to sit up.
“It’s okay. I gave up my powers to Aldera so she would bring you back.” I explained.
“Y- you gave up your powers for me? But, the reason you left is because you didn’t want your powers taken away.” Eiden said, confused.
“I know, but you’re my brother, and you mean more to me than any magical power in the world.” I said with a smile.
Eiden embraced me in his best brotherly hug. Then Eiden said, “Come on, let’s go home and see Mother.”
That’s the end of Part 4! Look for Part 5 coming soon! 😀
A few days ago, my mom and I stopped by Michael’s Craft Store (for another reason that I’ll be telling you all about soon! 😀 ) and while we were there, I stumbled across The Lilac Tunnel My Journey With Samantha book! My mom bought it for me to read for school and I was so hooked with this book, that it was hard for me to put it down!
The front cover is so pretty!
I took a picture of the description of it on the back, too 🙂
(psst! Click on the picture so you can read it! 😉 )
I love this little introduction! Just reading it, you KNOW that you’re going to love this book! 😀
So, let’s get on with the review!
How much is the book? It is $9.99 and totally worth it!
What is the book about? You’re a 10 year- old, modern day girl who is given a locket and when you open it up- you are transported back in time to 1904. There you meet Samantha who ends up being one of your best friends 🙂
Why do you love the book so much? I think the main reason why I love this book so much is because you can read the story so many different ways, and yet it all still has the same concept. Above is an example where you choose what happens next. And once you end that version of the story- you can go back and see how it ends when you make a different decision. It’s just such a neat idea and I love the creativity that is put into this book 🙂
Would you buy another “My Journey With __” book? Absolutely!! I would love to have them all someday! This is a book that I can read again and again! I highly recommend this book!
What do you think of the “Journey” books?
Recently, TheDollMag made a post that totally inspired me to be creative and put together some cute outfits for my dolls. So this morning I went outside and took some pictures 🙂
Caroline and Saige are great models!
Caroline is wearing “Saige’s Parade Outfit Pants, Saige’s Meet Boots, Weekend Fun Outfit Shirt and Vest, and a girl sized ponytail holder as a scarf.”
Saige is wearing “Cozy Sweater Outfit Leggings, Western Riding Outfit Boots and Skirt, Saige’s Sweater Outfit Tank Top, and Ruffled Hoodie Outfit Hoodie.” Haha- that last part sounded funny 😛
Don’t they look so pretty in this picture??
Saige’s hair is in a French Braid and Caroline’s hair is pulled back into twists with the rest down long. She also has a pink barette in her hair from the “Sweet School Dress” outfit.
I love how Caroline’s hair looks! It was in a Fish Tail Braid before and when I took it out it was so wavy and pretty, that all I did was finger comb through it a little so it wouldn’t look messy at all. Isn’t it pretty? 🙂
I love boots 😀
The lighting outside was perfect and I was able to capture the natural colors of my dolls 🙂
I love Caroline’s eyes in this picture!
So prettiful 🙂
I absolutely love how this picture came out! It’s probably one of my favorites. I know that’s silly, since it’s just feet, but it’s DOLL feet LOL 😛
I hope you enjoyed!
Who’s outfit do you like best?
So, I have a confession to make. I have always had a lot of trouble with styling Caroline’s curls- ever since I got her, and apparently I was using way too much water in her hair (yes, dumb me. I just had in my head “water helps” so I used a ton) and it made her hair smell really bad and the ends got all dried out. And before I knew it- she didn’t have anymore beautiful long curls. Just long wavy-ish hair. This has been bothering me for a long time and I was thinking about sending her to the Doll Hospital, but then I had the idea of trying to wash her hair, so the smell would go away. And so we did that recently and it worked wonders! And now, I have a fresh start with her and I can give her two different hair styles. One being natural, which is long curls, and the other is long wavy hair. Each way looks beautiful!
Now, in celebration of my “new” Caroline- let’s get on with the photoshoot! 😀
I love the shadowing of this picture 🙂
I LOVE how the color of her eyes go so well with the pool! 😀
Aren’t her curls so pretty?!
Is it just me or does she look super country-ish right here? 🙂
Now onto the edited pictures! 😀
I think this effect is so cool!
And this one 😀
Okay, this is seriously probably my favorite picture of Caroline that I have ever taken!! 😀
So pretty 😀
Do you have or want Caroline?
Lately, Rebecca has been standing out to me a lot and since I’ve been playing AG store (yes, I do that and it’s SO FUN!), she was all dressed up in her now retired Meet Outfit- a perfect opportunity for a photoshoot! 🙂
I did something a little different with this photoshoot- every other picture is filtered. The first picture is unfiltered 😉
It’s funny that I think this, since she’s obviously not dressed as a sailor, but she makes me think of a sailor in this picture. Probably cause of the way she’s holding her hat and the fact that she’s by a pool 😛
I think this photo looks so cool! Like a movie poster! 😀
This is such a neat effect!
I love how much her eyes are standing out in these pictures! 🙂
This one is one of my faves!! 😀
I just had to do a black and white 🙂
I think this might be my favorite one! She looks so gorgeous and so sweet! 😀
Do you have/want Rebecca? Which picture was your favorite?
