Photos From The Past
Hi everyone! Recently I was going through some old pictures I took from like 2009-ish, and I thought it would be fun to show you all 🙂
First off, this is a picture of all my stuffed animals (at that time) set up on my floor as Spirit preached to them about the Prodigal Son. I called it Beanie Church 😉 Oh, and you see that little white goat down there that’s tied up? Yeah… He’s bad so he had to be tied up to keep him from going crazy. Kinda funny that his name is Fred the Friendly Goat, isn’t it? XD
I took this photo of Beth around Christmas time. I think she looks so precious 🙂
O_O Did that really used to be all I had? I can’t even remember what that was like! XD Oh, just an FYI for those who don’t know, but Addy and Josefina are my sister’s dolls 😉
I played Little House on The Prairie/country a LOT when I was little. Here we have Felicity and Addy doing some mending 😉
Kirsten making some eggs 🙂 (OH MY GOSH HER HAIR!!! :O )
Josefina tending to the baby 🙂
This was another time when I was playing “real life”. Felicity, Addy, and Caleb are all playing with cars on this mat I had, while Kirsten, Kendra, and Josefina play with their dolls 🙂
Beth looking all sweet 🙂
And for a bonus, this is a picture of my room after I cleaned it all up. It looks so different now. O_O I’ll have to show you guys what my room looks like now sometime 😉
Well, I hope you enjoyed taking a stroll through memory lane with me! I love having these pictures to look back to 🙂
Do you have photos of things you used to play when you were little?
Masquerade~ Part 8
Okay, everyone settle down so I can begin this post! XD
I bet you’re all super happy to see this, huh? I got a splurge of inspiration today and finally figured everything out for the rest of this story! I’m SO excited to get the rest of the story posted and I hope you’re all just as excited as I am! 😀
For the previous part, click here. I just wanna make sure you’re all caught up 😉
As I walked through the streets that warm summer day, I found myself lost in deep thought. Why did I ever leave? Yes, I was terrified, but couldn’t I at least have confessed? Couldn’t I have confided in her?
“Please don’t go, Edmund.” Her pleas rang clear as a bell in my mind. “I don’t want to, but I have to.” I had said. “But why? Can’t you just tell me?” She asked of me as tears filled her striking green eyes. “I can’t. I’m sorry.” Was my vague and ridiculous reply.
“Remember me.” She requested just before she turned to leave. I’ve always remembered you. But did she still remember me? Did she even spare the slightest thought for me, even after all these years of being apart?
I shook my head. There’s no way. But it was time for me to go back, time for me to face her and find out for sure.
“Good day, Edmund!” Nicole, a good friend of mine, greeted as she joined my pace.
“Hello, Nicole.” I greeted, forcing a smile. She was my friend, but I wanted to be alone for the moment.
“Is something wrong?” She inquired.
After what I had learned after leaving home all those years ago, I knew it was best for me to come clear. “I’m leaving, Nicole. It’s time for me to go home.” I admitted.
“And to see her again, right?” She asked with a knowing smile.
“It was wrong of me to leave her that way. It’s high time I face her and make up for my mistakes. I thought I could beat this on my own, but I realize I need her now more than ever.” I explained, my heart heavy.
“Well, I certainly wish you well, Edmund. Be safe.” Nicole bid with a friendly grin.
“Thank you. For everything.” Nicole had helped me through a lot these past years and I was eternally grateful to her.
Oooh! I wonder who Edmund could be….? ;D
I hope you liked this part! We’ll get to Liesel in the next installment 🙂
Colonial Chanting Crickets~ A Photoshoot of the Beautiful Samantha (with a very weird & random title)
Hey Ho! Okay, first, I know the title is weird and extremely random, but I thought of the first three words that came to my mind that began with the letter “C” and just typed it, so that’s the strange reason behind the random title. XD
I’ve been feeling that Samantha has been lacking of attention lately, so I grabbed her, curled her hair, and headed outside for a quick photoshoot. I hope you enjoy the photos! 🙂
I think Samantha looks amazing in white! I always like brunettes in white- it just flows so well, don’t you think? 🙂
At least part of the title makes sense – she is dressed as a colonial girl after all 😉
Bouncy, flouncy, yippee ki-ay!
That’s all folks! I’m very tired… Hence the randomness in this post. I’m gonna go crochet and watch Anne of Green Gables now (the second one- my fave!!) 🙂
Have you watched the Anne of Green Gables movies?
Giving The Horses Some Exercise~ A Photostory
Felicity smiled at her beautiful mare, Penny as she led her out of the barn to get some exercise.
“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.
“Yeah! I wonder if Jocelyn knows how to ride already…” Felicity and Kaya pondered this a while, until they decided it was time to mount their horses for a short ride.
“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?
Colonial Julie~ A Photoshoot
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 🙂
I love this picture so much!!! At first I was frustrated with the wind, but then I realized I could sorta work with it to get some good pictures! 😀
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?
What My Dolls Are Up To
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?
The Disappearing Heirs Season 2~ The Crown Reclaimed: Part 3
Monica, Corinne, and I gathered into a circle to discuss what we were going to do from here, but I was hardly paying any attention to them.
“Allie? Hey, are you okay?” Corinne asked, noticing that I was stuck in a daze.
“Oh, yeah I’m fine. Monica, Corinne, I have to go to Feorden.” I stated.
“Allie, Feorden is a distant land in turmoil. Without a proper ruler, everyone has become confused with their lives, and they don’t know what they’re doing.” Monica said worriedly.
“I have also heard that the stewardess of the castle in Feorden is absolutely cruel. She doesn’t care about anyone, only money and ruling.” Corinne told me.
“Then that just gives me even more of a reason to go. I have to save my people. If I didn’t do anything to help them, then I would be just as bad as the stewardess.” I said, quite determined.
“You seem very passionate about this, Allie. And who are we to stand in your way?” Monica said with a smile.
“Thank you, Monica. All my life I’ve searched for my right path, and now it’s been revealed to me. Without you two, I never would have found it.” I said gratefully.
The next morning….
“Goodbye, Allie. Please keep in touch with me, okay? It won’t be improper for us to talk now that you’re a princess, too. I always knew there was a bit of royalty in you.” Katrina said with tears in her eyes. She had never spoken to me so kindly before, and I knew that she truly meant it.
“Thank you so much, Katrina! I promise that we will see each other again, and I will write to you.” I promised.
“So, where are you going from here?” Monica asked Corinne.
“To tell you the truth, I had hoped that I could get a job with your agency, but I suppose that since I didn’t arrest the man you were after, I don’t get it, huh?” Corinne asked, her eyes disappointed.
“Everyone makes mistakes, Corinne. Even I do. I wouldn’t not recommend you to the agency just because you didn’t make an arrest. You have all the qualifications of a detective, and I would gladly recommend you.” Monica said sincerely.
“It sounds like you two are saying goodbye.” I said I stepped up to Monica and Corinne.
“Not exactly. We were talking about Corinne working with me.” Monica corrected.
“Oh, well, I was thinking – well actually hoping that you and Corinne would come with me to Feorden.” I said hopefully.
“It would be an honor, Allie.” Corinne accepted. “I’d love to come, too, Allie, but I have to get the princesses back to their homes.” Monica said.
Then Katrina came over to our group. “Monica, why don’t you call for some other detectives to help us? You can go with Allie and Corinne and I’ll be fine with the other princesses until the detectives arrive.” Katrina offered.
“Hmm…” Monica thought it over. “Alright! Are you sure you’ll be okay here, Katrina?” Monica asked.
“Definitely!” Katrina said with a smile.
I threw my arms around Katrina and said, “Thank you so much!” Katrina was surprised by the hug, but she did hug me back. “You’re welcome.” She said sweetly.
We said our last goodbyes and headed on our way to Feorden. We weren’t sure what exactly lay ahead on our journey, and we carried nothing with us, but our determination, courage, and most important of all, our friendship.
That ends Part 3! Part 4 coming in one hour! 😀
The Disappearing Heirs Season 2~ The Crown Reclaimed: Part 2
We all walked outside and were met by Monica and Katrina. “Allie, Corinne! I expected you to be longer.” Monica said.
Katrina instantly walked over to the princesses and introduced herself.
Monica looked over us. “Where is he? Where’s your father?” She inquired.
“You knew he was my father?” I asked, raising my eyebrow and Corinne spoke up,
“He escaped.” She said simply.
Monica’s eyes widened and she sighed. “How did this happen?” She asked.
“We were about to come outside and suddenly he darted out the back door. I chased after him, but he was too quick. I’m sorry.” Corinne lied, but that isn’t what troubled me. I still had an unanswered question. “Monica!” I shouted and she turned quickly towards me. “You knew that he was my dad?” I asked again.
“Yes. I found out what he was looking for. I knew about the lost princess. And when you came into our hideout on that first day, I noticed your birthmark, and I knew that it was you. That’s why I was so adamant about you coming with us. I wanted to reunite father and daughter.” Monica explained.
I stood completely still with a serious look on my face. “Well, you did.” It was all I could say. I was angry that she hadn’t told me, and I lost him anyways, so her plan didn’t even work out well. I wondered if I would ever see him again…
The next part is coming in one hour so stay tuned! 🙂
The Disappearing Heirs Season 2~ The Crown Reclaimed: Part 1
I stood silent in complete shock with my mouth and eyes wide open. “Y-you’re my dad?” I stammered. Joshua nodded his head with a smile. “And, I’m a princess?” I asked, just to make sure.
“Yes. You are the princess of Fyorden. Allie, you are destined to rule the kingdom.” Joshua stated with pride.
I didn’t know quite how to respond. “Me? A princess? My destiny is to rule a kingdom?” I asked myself. I glanced at Corinne who’s eyebrow was raised.
“Are you kidding me? This crazy guy is your dad?” Corinne inquired.
“Yeah, he is.” I replied. “Wait a second. Is he crazy?” I wondered. “Joshu – um – I mean – da-” I began. “You can call me Josh for now.” Josh interrupted. “Okay… So, why were you kidnapping all the heirs?” I asked.
Josh sighed and said, “Well, I was trying to find you. I thought that perhaps another royal might have adopted you.”
I exclaimed in surprise. “So you think that if you had found me by kidnapping me, that I would want to stay with you? I’d be freaked out and I would run home to my family!” I said, raising my voice.
Josh looked down at his feet. “I know. I tried to find you for so long that it made me insane. I’m truly sorry. But now that you’re here, I feel like all of my craziness has left me.” He said with a smile and I managed a slight grin.
“Well, we should all probably get outside.” Corinne stated and I agreed. As I walked towards the front door with the princesses, Corinne pulled Josh aside and whispered something to him, but I couldn’t hear a word.
“Listen, I don’t want you to get into any trouble. If you take one step out that door, there’s a detective who’s going to arrest you. You have to run!”
Josh looked longingly towards me and back at Corinne. “But I just found her. I can’t just leave her like this!” Josh protested.
Corinne’s eyes saddened. “If you followed us outside, you may never see her again. You have hundreds of people looking for you. You must go into hiding. Please, run!” Corinne pleaded.
Josh sighed and looked towards me. I knew something was wrong, and I wanted to ask about it, but I decided to let them finish their business.
“Promise me you’ll keep an eye on her.” He asked of Corinne and she nodded her head.
Josh looked at me once again, and then fled through the back door.
Corinne joined us and said, “Don’t say a word to Monica about this. Just say that he got away.” I nodded as I realized that she helped him escape so he wouldn’t get into trouble. Who knows what would’ve happened to him if Corinne hadn’t told him to go. In my heart, I was dearly thankful to Corinne for what she did.
That ends Part 1! Part two will be up in one hour! 😀
Comparison of MAG #61, Felicity, and Saige
I know a lot of people have said that if you’ve missed out on Saige then get #61 cause she looks just like her, but I have never noticed anyone say anything about her looking like Felicity. So today I’m going to compare all three of them and we’ll see who really looks like who. None of these pictures are edited. It is all natural lighting from outside so you can see the most natural colors as possible. 🙂
In the shade they all seem to have around the same hair color, but Jenna’s looks slightly brighter.
In the sunlight, you can definitely tell that….
Jenna’s hair is brighter. It’s like fire! 😀
Here is Saige and Jenna. Saige has the classic face mold, red curly hair (which seems almost brown when you see her and Jenna together), blue eyes, and freckles. Jenna has the classic face mold, bright red wavy/curly hair, dark green eyes, and no freckles. There are only two things that are the same and that’s the face mold and they both have red hair, but honestly, the red of their hair is so different.
Now, here is Jenna and Felicity. Again, Jenna has the classic face mold, bright red wavy/curly hair, and dark green eyes. Felicity has the classic face mold (but it’s thinner than the one used now since she’s an older doll), red straight/wavy hair, and bright green eyes. Yes, pretty much everything is the same. I honestly can’t believe that I haven’t heard anyone say that she looks like Felicity, because they look like twins! There just very slight differences, like Felicity having brighter eyes and Jenna having brighter hair 😛
So there it is! I hope this helps you decide on what you think about #61 looking like Saige or Felicity 🙂
I’m sure you all think that it’s funny I wanted Jenna so badly, when I already had Felicity, but there’s just something about her… Her hair is amazing and I love her eye color! I also like the current classic face mold more than the older one, I think. This doesn’t mean that I don’t like Felicity anymore, though! I still LOVE my Lissie and always will! After all, she was my first American Girl doll 🙂
Have a nice day! And look out for another post later tonight! It’ll feature one other thing I got for Christmas. Here’s a clue- It’ll be when Jenna says goodnight 🙂
