Hello Girls and their dollies!
First thank you all for your well wishes and prayers for Cecile. We all appreciate them so much!
Cecile had her surgery on Friday and it went pretty well. We have been visiting her every day since and she seems to be doing okay. I am mad with the doctors, though and I’ll tell you why.
When Cecile was admitted into the hospital she was unconcious, so of course she can’t talk. Well, the doctors only examined her head and neck area (since that’s where the unconcious-ness would come from) and didn’t even bother to examine her fully. So, the day after the operation, Cecile’s leg is in pain. It turns out she broke it. So, she has a cast on her leg and a brace/cast-thingy (I don’t really know what it’s called, lol) on her neck. She can’t come home until a week has passed from the surgery. Please continue to pray for Cece! Because after today’s visit we have HORRIBLE news!! 🙁
Read on to find out more:
“How are you feeling today, Cecile?” Annika asked her sister.
“Okay.” Cecile replied.
“Cece? I just want to tell you how sorry I am. This never would’ve happened if I hadn’t waited so long to tell you to slow down on Penny! You can blame me all you want!” Saige cried.
“Oh, Saige don’t cry! It wasn’t your fault! I don’t blame anyone for what happened. It just- happened. I’m sorry that you’ve thought I blamed you all this time. I really don’t.” Cecile said weakly and with tears in her eyes.
“Thank you Cece.” Saige said, but it didn’t quite seem like she believed it.
“Would you help me lie down? I’m feeling really tired.” Cecile asked.
Annika and Saige helped her to lie down. “Could you take the covers off? It’s so hot in here.” Cecile said.
Annika pulled down her blanket and folded it nicely at the foot of the bed.
“There you go, Cece. Is that better?” Annika asked.
“Thank you, but I’m still very hot.” Cecile said. Suddenly, Annika got worried.
She leaned down to put her hand on Cecile’s head. “Cecile you have a fever.” Annika said.
“Saige, go get Mommy and Doctor Jack! Tell them Cecile has a fever!” Annika said. She was very worried.
“Annika, what’s wrong? It’s just a fever.” Saige said.
“No, I don’t think it’s just a fever. Now go get Mommy! GO!” Annika raised her voice and it startled Saige. She had never heard Annika talk like that before. Saige darted out of the room.
“Oh, Cecile! You have to be alright! You just have to!” Annika cried.
I was in the room before the doctor and I pressed my hand against Cecile’s forehead. “Oh, my sweet girl!” I said.
“Is she going to be okay?” Saige asked.
“What’s wrong with her, Mommy?” asked Annika.
“Doctor Jack says that she has an infection. That’s what is causing the fever.” I said with tears in my eyes, but trying to be strong for my girls.
Saige started to cry and Annika had tears. Annika hugged her sister and said, “Saige, she’s going to be alright!”
“Annika, this is all my fault! We should’ve been in the ring with her. I should’ve told her what to do if Penny started going too fast or if she lost control!” Saige cried.
“Saige, listen to me. This is not your fault! There is no way anyone could tell what was going to happen. You heard her, she doesn’t blame you, I don’t blame you, and neither does anybody else. So, why should you go on blaming yourself?” Annika said. Saige just kept crying. “She’s going to be okay, Saige. I promise, okay?” Annika said and hugged her a little tighter.
“Okay.” Saige said and she started to calm down.
The doctors are gonna have to do another surgery. It’s scheduled for this evening. Hopefully it will all go well! 😕
That’s the end of Part 2! Part 3 will be posted as soon as I have the time 😉
Also, I just want to share this super sweet get well card that my friend Annie and her dolls sent in for Cecile:
Thank you SO much! Cecile really appreciates it! 🙂
Ever since Cecile discovered that we had horses she has wanted to learn how to ride. Well, the day for her to give it a try has finally arrived!
Annika and Rebecca came outside to watch.
“Good luck!” Annika said with a smile.
“You’ll do great!” Rebecca shouted.
“Thanks! I’ll need it!” Cecile replied.
“Do you think she’ll do alright?” Saige asked Felicity.
“Well, why wouldn’t she?” Lissie wondered.
“I dunno. It’s just that I’ve felt very un-easy all morning..” Saige explained.
“Oh, don’t worry, Saige! She’ll be fine.” Felicity said trying to cheer up her sister.
“I hope so. But if anything happens to her I will never ride again.” Saige said.
Cecile started off great and Felicity and Saige were doing great at guiding her around.
“That’s it, now bring her over here.” Saige said.
“Good job, Cece!” Felicity said. Cecile smiled broadly 😀
“Uh- Annika? Don’t you think she’s goin’ a little too fast?” Rebecca asked.
“Yes, she is. She needs to slow her down.” Annika said, getting worried.
“Cecile! Bring her to a walk!” Felicity said.
“You’re going too fast! Slow her down, Cece!” Saige shouted.
“I don’t know how to slow down!!” Cecile yelled.
“Pull back on the reins and-” Felicity started, but was interrupted by a scream.
“AAAAAAAH!!!!” Cecile screamed as Penny stood on her hind legs. Cece had lost complete control and then all of a sudden-
*THUD* Cecile fell backwards off of Penny.
All of the girls rushed to help her,
“Cece! Cece, wake up!”
“Is she okay?”
“Cece, please come back to us!”
I looked out the window to see my girls gathered around Cecile, who seemed to be unconsious. I ran outside and called an ambulance to come right away.
The doctors told me that she had injured her neck and needed surgery.
After fighting back some tears I asked the doctor,
“May I sit with her for a while?”
“Of, course.” The doctor replied.
I sat by her bed and prayed. Then I kissed her cheek and said, “I love you sweetie.”
That’s where we end part 1! I have a busy schedule the next few days, so I will be posting Part 2 on Monday 😉
Will Cecile be okay? Do you think Saige meant what she said about not riding again?
It’s official! This is my 100th post!! To celebrate we are going to have a GIVEAWAY!!! YAAAY!! 😀

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! 🙂

Her curls are absolutely amazing! I expected them to be kinda crunchy, but they’re actually very soft! 🙂
I am so excited to play with her, dress her up, and most importantly- introduce her to all of her new brothers and sisters!
