After we got home from church yesterday and ate lunch I just wanted to relax for awhile. Then it was time to go over my brother in-law’s family’s house. I had such a great time and I got to see my friend Alyssa (you might remember me asking for prayer requests for her when she was in the hospital with bad seizures. Thankfully she is doing a LOT better and it made me really happy!) 😀
First, my girls started out with an Easter Egg Hunt! All of my “kids” didn’t do it, only 6 of them and they were in teams of 3 😉
All the pretty eggs on the lawn
“Which way should we go first?” Cecile asked excitedly.
“Oh, oh! Let’s get those pretty pink eggs!” Marie-Grace said.
Rebecca went to pick them up and placed them in the basket.
“I think we have enough eggs now. We should let the others get the rest.” Kaya said trying to be fair to her sisters.
“Yeah, that’s a good idea.” Saige replied.
After the egg hunt, they all went inside to join the others.
Marie-Grace counted her eggs and Cecile and Caroline sat with her.
“How many did you guys get?” Caroline asked.
“Five, six and seven! We got seven eggs!” Marie-Grace said with a big smile.
“They collected practically all of the pink eggs. There were hardly any for us!” Kanani said to Jess.
“Well, I know I haven’t been here long, but it seems like pink is Marie-Grace’s favorite color, so I guess it makes sense.” Jess said with a giggle.
Samantha poured herself a cup of tea and said, “Do you like tea, Lissie?”
“Yes, I love tea!” Felicity replied and Samantha poured her a cup.
“C’mon, Kristoff. Let’s get all the cinnamon rolls before the others get a chance to have any!” Eli whispered, but Samantha heard him. “Eli, you two are not eating all of those cinnamon rolls! That is so bad for you!” Samantha scolded.
“How are you doing, Jess? I thought it might be hard for you to celebrate Easter without your family.” Annika said sadly.
“I’m doing okay. Some things have been a little hard, but I’m doing alright.” Jess replied.
“That’s good. And remember, I’m always here if you need to talk to someone.” Annika said kindly.
“Thank you, Annika. I’ll remember that.” Jess smiled. “This family is a lot different than my old one,” Jess thought, “but I think that in time, I’m going to love it here. Thank you, Lord, for blessing me with such an amazing family.”
Alright! You all guessed correctly, I did get the Sweet School Dress! Now as for the doll, Anonymous was the only one who guessed that correctly
It’s Jess!! She absolutely LOVES this outfit! And I’ll definitely be reviewing it soon, so keep your eyes open for it! 😀
Happy (late) Easter from me and my dolls!!!!
How did you spend your Easter? Did you get any dolly surprises?
So, today me and my mom were out doing errands and all of a sudden she said, “I have a feeling to go to the Thrift Store.” and I said, “Oh, my gosh, can we go?!” And we stopped off at the Thrift Store!!
We looked through all of the bins and I found a few dolls (not AG). One was an adorable Precious Moments Doll, but I decided not to get her because she would end up just sitting on a shelf and would never get attention. And then I found a Disney Animator’s Collection Rapunzel Toddler Doll! I kinda wanted to get her, but she wasn’t really calling to me. Then I found an 18″ Madame Alexander Doll. She was only $4.99 and I really wanted to rescue her. So when I was checking out the total ended up being $2.70!!! It turns out that all yellow tags were 50% OFF!!
I feel so bad for this doll. She’s definitely “A bit of a fixer-upper” ( 😉 )!
She has big round marks on each of her cheeks. It looks like highlighter to me.
Her hair isn’t in the best condition, but it’s not too bad.
The shirt she’s wearing is from American Girl! Anyone know what outfit this is from?
On a couple of her finger nails there’s what also seems to be pink highlighter.
I took a picture of her Style#. Do any of you know which doll this is?
I’m really excited to have my first doll rescue and to fix her up! I hope I can get her looking nice and pretty again. Well’p, it’s time for me to get to work! 😀
Have you ever rescued a doll?
My friend Emma has a blog where she posts photostories and photoshoots of her dolls, but sadly, I am the only one who comments on her blog
Her photostories are really good and the photoshoots are beautiful! Emma is super nice and friendly and (for all you Frozen lovers) she is also obsessed with Frozen! Please head on over to her blog, “Wack-A-Doodle-Doos” and leave a comment. She would appreciate it SO much!
Here are a few pictures from her most recent posts:
Julie is so sweet to her sister in Congratulations Molly!
Jess sitting outside with Licorice in Photo shoot- Jess!
Find out what happens at Saige’s First Slumber Party!
Thank you in advance for checking out her blog
So, I was at Disneyland today and I saw a little girl (when we were in line for a ride) holding an AG doll. We walked by quickly, but I’m pretty 100% sure that she was carrying this doll:
And she was wearing the Casual Chic Outfit
So, anyways, my main point is that, you know you’re obsessed with dolls when you’re on a ride that you could possibly get wet on and you tell your mom, “Oh, my gosh, I hope that American Girl doll is okay!” 😀
Do you ever have moments like that?
P.S. I will be posting comments tomorrow. I don’t have time tonight, but keep commenting!
Ever since Kristoff came to live with us he has been missing Sven (his reindeer) so much. Just before I adopted him, Sven was taken away. We didn’t know where, but I found out that the orphanage sold him. I have been doing all I can to get him back, but it’s been very hard. And today, Kristoff was feeling very upset….
Kristoff walked into the bedroom with his head hanging down.
Cecile noticed that he looked very sad, so she asked, “Kristoff, are you okay?”
Kristoff moved closer to where Cecile was sitting, with his head still hanging down. “You’re missing Sven, aren’t you?” Cecile asked sympathetically. Kristoff turned his eyes away and nodded his head.
“I miss him a whole lot. Sven and me have always been together. I don’t think I’ll ever see him again.” Kristoff said sadly.
Overhearing the conversation, Lissie went over to Kristoff and placed her hand on his shoulder. “I know you miss, Sven, Kristoff, but you can’t give up hope! Mommy is trying to get him back for you still, so you just may see him again. And just think, Sven wouldn’t want you feeling sad because he’s not here with you. He would want you to be having fun and enjoying your days.” Felicity said kindly. She was always good at making people feel better.
“What’s wrong?” I asked as I walked in the room. “I miss Sven.” Kristoff replied.
“Oh, I see. Why don’t you go in the stables and visit with the horses? I know it will make you feel better.” I said with a smile.
Kristoff looked at Penny and sighed, “This isn’t making me feel better. It makes me miss him even more.” Kristoff was just about to turn around and go inside when he saw something…
It was a little fluffy tail! Kristoff got a little curious, so he walked over to the next stall.
“Sven! Sven! Sven! It’s you!!” Kristoff shouted happily.
Kristoff went in the stall to pet him when Sven tackled him to the ground! Sven was just as happy to see Kristoff as Kristoff was to see Sven! Kristoff laughed and laughed. “Sven, I missed you! I can’t believe you’re here!”
Now, I just have to make sure that Kristoff doesn’t share any carrots with Sven
He is the cutest little thing!! Just like in the movie 😀
Yes, this is another Frozen inspired post! I am so obsessed 😀
So, who is this little cutie?
“It’s me, Kristoff!” He says. Of course it is!!
I ordered Kristoff about a week ago and he just came in the mail today! Can I just say that I am dying over his cuteness??
Look at that sweet little face!! I love his freckles
His mittens are so adorable!
And I LOVE his boots!! “Or the pear-shaped, square-shaped weirdness of his feet?” 😛
And the rest of his outfit is absolutely adorable!!
One of my favorite things about him is that he is a little taller than Anna! I love how realistic that is
You can see the height difference better in this picture.
It looks like Kristoff really likes his new little sister!
I’m sure you’re all wondering how old I’m going to make him be. Well, I have decided to make him be 7 years old. I think that’s a good age for him 😉
How do you like my new little Kristoff?
I know that this Elsa doll is like a Barbie and that this is an American Girl Blog, but we talk about all kinds of dolls, so why not have a different type of doll in a post once in a while, right? 😉
Doesn’t Elsa look so radiant in this picture?!
“Let it go!”
“Let it goo!” Hehe 😛
The first thing I have to say is that her hair is AMAZING! They did a fantastic job with her hair!
She has such a pretty face and I love the make-up on her eyes! Too pretty!
Unfortunately my Elsa doll came with a couple imperfections. Although I inspected several of the dolls in the store, I did not see that her cape was coming un-sewn. That’s a bummer, but my mom said she can fix it for me
The other problem (I couldn’t take a picture because it’d be too difficult to see) is that her left leg is tilted in which makes it shorter than the right. That makes it hard for her to stand up, so usually I have to lean her against something or hold her up myself. So hopefully this teaches you 2 things:
1. Inspect the doll as much as you can before you buy/open her.
2. When opened, do not throw away all of the packaging right away. Make sure there’s nothing wrong with her first and then throw it out.
Her cape is so gorgeous and the detail is amazing! This is definitely one of the best parts about her!
Close up of the cape, so you can see the detail.
Something I really like about her is that her arms can move in three different places- at the shoulder, at the elbow, and at her wrist. This makes her very fun to pose!
Now I’m going to show you the differences between two Elsa dolls I have.
The one on the left, I bought at Disneyland and the one on the right, I bought at Target. I bought the one from Target first because I had NO idea that the other one existed. When I saw the other one at Disneyland I was very mad at myself for spending my money on the other one. But once I had money again, I bought the one from Disneyland and I was super happy with my purchase!
I’m sure you can see how different they are. I thought the one on the right looked good (seriously? How could I think that? 😛 ), so when I saw the other one, I pretty much died! LOL! 😛
Here you can see how different their hair and cape is. I LOVE Elsa A’s (Yes, I got tired of saying the one on the left 😛 ) hair!!! It’s perfect!! 😀
I thought I’d show you the Anna I have as well. The one from Disneyland is 10 times better, but I haven’t gotten around to buying her yet. 😉
And here’s my Kristoff! He’s cool, but the other one is also 10 times better. I plan to add the better Kristoff and Anna as well as Hans to my collection someday.
One last photo
I hope you enjoyed my review! Let me know which ones you have! I’d love to know!
I know that Anna is not an American Girl Doll, but she is played with as one of my “kids”, so I thought that she could use a little attention. Besides, I’m dying to show you all of the different expressions she can make just by the angle of her head
Anna laid her head on her little play table feeling very blah. “I’m bored.” Anna sighed. She stayed there a little while longer and then-
-she sat up! “I know what I wanna play with!” Anna exclaimed.
She quickly headed out the door. What was she up to?
She was getting her Squinky Castle of course!
She gently placed the castle on her table.
She took off the lid and got out all of these squinkies! Which one will she take out of it’s bubble first?
Anna looks very happy with this one! But who is it?
It’s Merida!! She is her favorite Disney Princess right now. But I have a feeling once she sees Frozen, she will LOVE Anna 😉
Anna played for a long time. But after a while, she started to get hungry and a little tired of playing with squinkies.
She got up and went to the door, she was on her way to get a cookie. But she was leaving quite a mess behind! “I’ll pick it up later.” Anna said.
But it looks like she knows, she’ll end up watching a movie and one of her big sisters will be cleaning up her mess!
Anna is truly an amazing doll and I am SO happy to have her! I hope to add Kristoff to my little family sometime as well, but I don’t expect that to be soon. He’s been sold out for a while and I can’t find him anywhere 😕
Do you have any squinkies?
I hope you enjoyed!

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? 😀
